O'right, coming along nicely :)

Maybe we should start up a FAQ/discussion - 'What to do on the pre-relo suck-it-and-see trip'.

That said such trips are usually very busy so there is little discretion for doing other than what is scheduled for you.

I just moved in my condo by bedok reservior two days ago, no gas no hot water for me until 11th, the whole Singapore is in holiday mood and no one cares about me suffering from cold shower....

but, above all, I am in.

Actually this aint a bad idea!! :o I will welcome that thought, and act on it! Once my outbound tickets are booked! Def need to cram in a few facts at what one should look at (well two, as Mrs coming along too)

Yes I was told today, that it is holiday season there! Here in London we are dealing with silly tube strikes and whole city is like zombieland!!!

but congrats on finally getting a roof on top of your head buddy! Do point us in right direction(s) too when we eventually start looking for our own place .....

Just a quick update.

We are flying into Singapore on 26th August, staying till early September. The offer was made and it is exceptional (I must add).

Now only to look and feel the city

Ok, I'll start a topic re: 'Pre-relo' trips, and see how people suggest the time is best spent...

Edit: the direct link is not direct at all, it just posts a generic link to the forum...
viewtopic.php?t=108469
The topic is in the 'Relocating/Moving..' sub-topic, with a similar time-stamp to this post just now, it is titled 'Pre-relo trip - What to do to make best use of time?'


p.s. Mods: I'll report this problem with URLs not copying as a bug in the appropriate thread.

Fixed. - moderator
