Bempongemma: Welcome to Singapore!
Did you read the many posts about finding a job in Singapore? There's lots of good advice already available on this forum!
Please note that, even f you are lucky and manage to find a job within your short time here, work visa processing currently takes very long (one to three months!), so you'd have to return to your country or elsewhere in the meantime.

Hi Everyone,
This is Shakerin. I have come to Singapore on June 29, 2017. I am living in Serangoon area. I have relocated alone and have an EP until 2019 July.

I like Singapore for it's calm and safe environment. Looking for meetups to get familiar with new culture plus new people. Also looking for Bangladeshis living here.

Hi Ashlee5, which neighbourhood did you finally settle in? There are a lot of interesting areas in Singapore but personally, I prefer Tiong Bahru mainly because of the quaint shophouses, hole in the wall restaurants and cafes. Going to key places such as Orchard and Raffles Place is also accessible without having to pay for the more expensive rent price in the said areas.

Hi everyone!

Hi all seeking language cultural exchange by making expat friends!

Hi, I'm Samy and I've just come to Singapore from Canada and I've set up my business here. I enjoy meeting people and I've lived in Singapore before, the US, Kenya and Pakistan.

I welcome any advice that anyone may have to market my English (ESL) and Business English Tutoring services. I've worked with Berlitz in Sg and Toronto and I'm very excited to have started my own business. Would like to meet any other entrepreneurs on this forum to exchange ideas.

Thanks !

Hi everyone!

I'm Jacyln - a Malaysian biotech professional who is in the final stages of securing a job in Singapore.

I have two questions to expats currently working & living in Singapore:
(1) when you negotiate for your salary, do you include an additional, say 15%, since there is no CPF provided to expats (except PRs)?
(2) what would be the neighborhoods in singapore where there is a community of young (mid 20s to mid 40s) professionals, easy access to various exercise classes & fairly close to nature?


Happy to be in this forum.

Ms.jac, for your query 1, the HR does give additional amount while negotiating salary with you. If X Co. agreed to 6k per month, that means they have added the employer's possible deposit amount (in case you were a citizen or pr, employer contribute its portion into CPF) into your basic.

For query 2, surprise to know that you are a Malaysian but didn't know about Singapore neighbourhood! Relatively, its a city with tiny area so practically you can get easily access to each part of Singapore. You will find small gardens (man made) in many part of the city, depends on your working place, you may select where to stay. Good luck

Hey everyone! I'm looking for a place to live for 6 months starting around mid October. I am a responsible 32 year old active woman.  I am clean, quiet, fun loving and respectful.

Looking for a roommate/friend to learn from and hang out with!

If you have work pass or PR, local then you can check accommodation section, recently I had posted the details of local sites to search rooms and other details such as agreement letter signing with the land lord, if required etc.

Good luck

Great! Thanks very much! I'll do that
