Next Chapter Singapore

My marriage has brought me to Singapore. I knew it wasn't going to be easy after hearing numerous things from my friends and colleagues. It's a complete change for me. I had to face with the new place and nurture my relationship at the same time. One thing that I wanted to keep same was my job. 

I had so much going on last year with my job. My marriage got fixed just the same time I moved to a new department, that was back in February 2014. Things got a little complex. I had a new job description and for sure I wanted to attain this position. I was just loving what I do and I didn't want to leave this opportunity. I didn't know how to approach my manager, but I thought it was time, I did talk to him to see the possibility of attaining my job but having to be based in Singapore. We had several discussion on this topic and I wasn't really finding any new job in parallel because I was so occupied with the wedding preps. I knew in December (one month before my wedding), that they would allow me to do that.All my paper work was process that. I was relieved have a secured job before I moved to Singapore.  

I moved to Singapore on 1st of February 2015. Our initial plan is to stay here for 2 years and then moved back to Bangkok. This is the plan for now. But we really don't know where life will take us. 

My move was simply pack my bags and leave. My husband and I left from Bangkok on the same day but sadly on different flight. Our ticket was taken care by our company. Luckily we had similar flight timings. Our plans landed parallel to each other in Singapore. Just when I left the gate I saw him walking off this gate as well. It was too good to be true.

We were finally on our way home. I was missing home but at the same time so many mix feeling. I was a bit on a low side. As soon as I exited the elevator, I hear people shouting, surprise... My husband had arranged for his friends to come over to welcome me home and we had take away dinner together. Someone had also taken a video of the moment. My low moral just lifted with excitement. It was really unexpected.

 This is how it all started off. I was lucky that there was no hiccups along the journey. More is yet to be discovered. I would be blogging more on my Singapore life, the adjustment, the fit in, relationship, home, and just everything about it.
