this is a topic that is at the top of any new expat parent, so i wonder why it was never made a sticky... the sheer number and variety in approaches and quality of education (both social and academic) makes the process of finding and getting enrolled in a 'good' school labrynthine. i'd like to find ...

I came to the forum to get ideas on venues for my toddler's birthday party and this is the first thread that came up in the search. very unfortunate. looks like everyone is a bit ignorant of others - and in some cases of even our own respective groups. sounds to me that both expats and singaporeans ...

I'm a US citizen, though only for the past 3 months (am Asian American). But I grew up and lived in the states for 35yrs before moving to Sing a month ago.
