A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!



Because you survived 2021 (& 2020 also to be fair) you deserve 2 Avent Calendars.

You need to take that step and get out of your comfort zone.
It’s the perpetual game we have to play with this expat life.

2-Dec-2021: D-199 before departure 🇸🇬

This is a picture I took as I was going to a Newcomers meet-up drink (The Newbies Group). As an introvert I have a hard time doing this and I really need to step out of my comfort zone. I almost didn’t go in but since I had already made it to the door I counted 5,4,3,2,1 and took that step. I’m so glad I did because I ended up meeting a great group and with 4 of those ladies we made our own group: “the Oldies” and met up almost every month for dinner (until a couple months ago when 2 repatriated).

On paper we have almost nothing in commun. Young kids, old kids, no kids. Very different interests. Our only commun point is that we were all from different countries and all married to different nationality (that in itself was great subjects of discussion 😂) but somehow it worked.

~~~ Just a little FYI So for my last 200 days in Singapore I have decided to reblog, in no special order, a post from the 6 years I will have spent on the Little Red Dot. I have excluded pictures of our trips because I have already reposted them while we were stuck on our Little island during the past 2 years (& you can find them here!). PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!! ~~~
