At least you already fulfil some of the criteria for happy living in Singapore:
- use of proper English words ("shifting") in the wrong context (changing residence is called "moving")
- random omission of vowels ("knw", "thnx")
- inconsistent use of "shift" key ("i")
You will fit right in. Just learn to add "lah" to the end of every sentence.
Good luck!
