Times flies. I have been back home in London for almost a year.

Hope everyone is doing well and having a great festive season xx

Hi chris_pilgrim,

How has it been back in London? Any differences between life in Singapore and London that you would like to share here?

hi PeanutButterJam

London is very much the same.

So far (i feel) the economy has not yet been affected by Brexit but
the tube strikes have caused me some travel misery. And right now I am coughing like mad because I caught the dreaded winter bug

@PeanutButterJam. but I must say, during my two-year stint in Singapore, I missed London's work culture the most - easygoing and calm. I find Singapore bosses too "kiasu" and "kiasi"
