Your mission today, if you accept it, is to locate a grocery store. Bigger than the convenient shop in your apartment complex but smaller than the 5-story We-sell-everything-from-salt-to-fridge store you’ve been to lately.

Mission accepted: Drove my big car on the “wrong” side of the road and located a tiny parking space.

The supermarket was tiny, ok not as tiny as my locale supermarket in my neighborhood in Beijing. But I managed to find most of the things I had on my shopping list.

I will scout some other stores located not far from our apartment in the next few days to assess the offering then I will do like everybody else and order online (I can even do it thru an app on my phone)… Same prices, free deliver and I won’t have to get all the bags from the car to the 28th floor 😉



10-Jan-2022: D-160 before departure

Vacation is over… back to regular programming 😉

Singapore will be the country in which I will have lived the longest (China will be a tie but it was twice 3 years, not 6 years in a row).

After moving every 3 to 4 years since I left France 30 years ago, I’m kind of missing the settling in in a new country, the discoveries, the thrill and even the frustration (it keeps you busy 😉). You’ve got to get out of your comfort zone and jump in. It’s a swim or sink kind of situation.


~~~ 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. PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!! ~~~
