New members of the Singapore forum, introduce yourselves here - 2019

Hi all,

Newbie on the Singapore forum? Don't know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country,
or to tell us more on your expat projects in Singapore if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

Hi Everyone,

I am Sylvia, I come from the Netherlands. It has already been 3 months ago that my husband and I arrived in Singapore. We will be staying here for 2 years. We absolutely love Singapore! It's so clean, organized, safe and modern.  And we're looking forward to meeting great people here in Singapore! Music, eating out and shopping are our favorite activities. Hope to see you soon!

Hello everyone!

I am Joanna, coming from the United States.

And.... what do you do Joanna? Why did you come to this beautiful place and from where?

Hi Sylvia,

And why are you only here two years and why did you come? I am working with a company in the Netherlands called cBrain, have you heard of them? I also worked with ZenDesk, a fantastic company from the Netherlands....


Hi Tony,

Thanks for your post! I have a 2-year appointment at a university here.

Hi Marshal,
If you want to work as teacher in Singapore, did you already check if your credentials are recognised by MoE?
And how does work experience in tourism and marketing help with being a teacher? You need to be focussed in order to find a job here!

Hi, Im Junni... working here in Singapore for almost 8 years now. Glad to be here,

Hello Everybody,

I have a dear friend, a native Hungarian, living in Singapore, with her family. With joint efforts we would like to find her a person locally who would help her with English grammar, in her native language: Hungarian. I thought that joining your community would be a good idea to find the assistance we need.

Thank you in advance.

Libertango: Your friend is welcome to practise her English in this forum (but no Hungarian, sorry!).
She can also check for Hungarian forum members living in Singapore at the following link:
She should be aware, though, that sending multiple messages to others she doesn‘t know is seen as SPAM here. So she should not abuse the PM functionality.

Hello, thank you very much for your answer and the suggestion. Yes, agreed!

Hi Buhlegaule, welcome to the forum!
Did you know that „Buleh“ is the Indonesian word for white guy? So I was a bit surprized when I saw your profile picture. But I guess it means something completely different in your language, right?

Hello Everybody,
I'm Matteo, from Italy. I am a fresh bachelor's graduate in Computer Science, with really little work experience but with a good academic background and volunteer experiences. My girlfriend is from Singapore and I'm willing to move there for work experience. The first month of sending applications was not so effective and so I am still looking to find the job.
I hope I can get some good advice on this forum.

If you read old threads, we have given plenty of advice, including threads at the TOP 3.

I would recommend to get 2 to 3 years of real-time experiences with an employer before trying here. Even though, you are lucky to find an employer who can hire you but getting a work pass for a fresher is tougher. Anyway, there is nothing wrong to give a try. Good luck
