hey there!

i haven't got any kids, but i did the move over here mid january and i found it a bit daunting. my husband and i have never been out of the country before, and we left everyone we know in australia. but its been a good experience so far. once you settle in, you'll be fine. maybe find some mums n bubs groups on this forum? hope you have a great time here in singapore.

cheers, minnie

MS, you do yourself a big disservice by leaving yourself out of that esteemed list of personalities. MS probably has more information in his head about this little red dot that all the rest of us combined!

Anyway, welcome to Singapore and he's right. If you cannot find it using the search function of this site (one of the better search function of a forum I've ever used) just yell, and we'll try our darnedest to find an answer for you. :wink:

We moved to Singapore from the UK in August with two young kids so know how you feel. If you're living in a condo there will be plenty of opportunities to meet other Mums. We now both work full time and have a 2 and 3 year old! If you want to e mail me tpchappers@gmail.com would be happy to keep in touch or meet up with you and your family once you arrive for coffee / play date. (PS we're quite normal not internet stalkers!!!!).

Have a safe trip

Theresa :-)
