Hi Tanusa, I'm just wondering if you decided on a school. We're arriving in Singapore around mid-October (still waiting for visas, yikes). Our daughter is starting kindie at CIS but I want to look at other schools as well for her for next year, especially SAS and UWC. Did either of these schools gi...

We are also from the US, and my daughter is currently at OFS for 1st grade. We arrived last summer, and I was in the same boat you are, with having to make a decision without being able to come here first and not really finding any frank advice on this forum. So, I enrolled my daughter for K2 at OF...

will a U.S. king-sized bed fit in most master bedrooms?

Hello. My husband and I just bought a new king-sized bed here in the U.S. I think king-sized beds here are a little larger than those sold in Singapore. We are relocating the end of the year to Singapore, and I'm wondering if the bed will comfortably fit in most master bedrooms there. I've looked on...

OFS, Stamford American, UWC

Hello. We're relocating to Singapore from the US at the end of the year. I'm trying to figure out which schools to apply to, which is very hard considering I'm doing all the research from the US and will be unable to tour schools before arriving. Any advice or information would be really appreciated...

Original post we are arriving soon as well from Canada. We might join the club but we're going to check it out first as it is a LOT of money. But with two little kids in tow I thought it might be worth it for all the swimming lessons etc they offer. hello movingtospore, i think i saw some of your o...

- Undergarments (female especially) - Anything you like from Target. - Summer clothes (especially work pants/skirts) - Dayquil/Nyquil - Anything you use daily/regularly that you think you could always 'buy in Singapore'... just bring at least a few weeks' supply first. These are the things that mak...

Would love to hear feedback from other parents who are sending their children there. I know school doesn't start until Aug. 17, but would love to ...

wow, 60% more expensive? I think I'll throw a few boxes of Kirkland's in our container! Btw, I totally love Costco's diapers. I bought them out of desperation one time and was totally surprised at how good they are. I love the gathered waistband in the back. My son is tall, but very thin. They're th...

tanusa - you should bring an assortment of holiday cookie cutters and stuff for cookies/cakes... especially if you do any Wilton type cakes/decorating. There are some great baking stores here but the markup on Wilton is insane. *But* at Phoon Huat (bake supply store) you can find incredible selecti...

British version of Kitchenaid Mixer... do you have one?

Hello again... I read on another thread about Williams-Sonoma here in the U.S. selling British versions of the Kitchenaid Mixer, but it didn't mention if they bought one and used it. I checked with the store this weekend, and yes, it's true. I can order a British Artisan mixer for US$300. Has anyone...

We had to buy men's underwear and shoes when we went back to the UK as my husband is over 6" tall and we can't get things here to fit him. Nice high heels is also something I brought back with me, but I don't wear highs in Singapore as I never find a place that calls for it. Beds here are stan...
