Goodbye wet and cold, Hello warm and humid!

Moving to Singapore? Ask our regular expats in Singapore questions on relocation and their experience here. Ask about banking, employment pass, insurance, visa, work permit, citizenship or immigration issues.

You have never taken a taxi in Bangkok or Jakarta - otherwise you wouldn't complain any more.

Does the fact I've taken a taxi somewhere or not change the fact I should complain about a taxi driver putting the lives of my kids at risk? No it doesn't, what an absurd comment. And yes I have taken a taxi in both Jakarta and Bangkok and if the OP was asking about those countries I'd tell him.

Come down from your cultural high horse!

Well whoop-de-doo, you've worked elsewhere other than your home country and Singapore, it obviously makes you feel very important. I have never worked in Thailand or China, you are absolutely right, are they nice?

I am trying to give the OP information that they may find useful in the future. That is what was asked for. Not such a problem is it?

Anyway, to the OP, life in general is very, very good here. :)

Listen to Marco Polo telling you how to run your family!

Maybe I should give him some travel tips....
