So much of you have been asking where are we headed next so here's the news. We're moving to…MIDDLE EARTH! 😅 (LOTR fans say Hi 👋🏼) – Both Ge and I haven't been in NZ before so we're definitely in for a treat! We're trading high-rise buildings to high mountains, noisy concrete jungle to calm lakeside views, all-year summer days to four seasons, and dine-in dates to weekend road trips. 🙌🏼 – In the meantime, a lot of touristing around Singapore is still going on behind the scenes.😊 #expatlife

Being given the opportunity to move to Singapore and live a life I've never even dreamed about is a gift, and not one time in the past five years have I forgotten to be grateful for that. – It wasn't always smooth sailing. There were times when I’d feel less confident about myself, think small and doubt my dreams… time when I even question if it was worth it. But the answer I find within me is always a resounding YES. In my heart I knew, I wouldn't change a thing. – Our five years in Singapore is soon coming to a close. Full of experiences, memories, travels, hardships, smiles, tears and growth. I'm taking it all in. What a satisfying journey it has been. ♥️ #expatlife #honestcaptions #exploresingapore #sginstagram #visitsingapore #dametraveler
