People are leaving Singapore rapidly. I haven’t been here long enough to know if this is a normal, seasonal outflow or if we’re infact seeing a sign of the difficult economic times in the US. I suspect this is more of an exodus than annually experienced.
Today, my closest, everyday buddy, Melanie told me her family will ship home in June. I’m extremely sad. Melanie and I dropped our 4 year olds off at Pre-K every day, we exercised together daily, we play Mah-Jong weekly, our kids really enjoy each other. Our worlds have collided in the best way possible this semester. And, she’s a really great person. I will miss her tremendously.
I’ve only been here three months and I have said too many good byes already. Part of the expat life.
Below is a picture of someone’s container. This is someone’s house packed up and ready to get put on a ship. We see more and more of these around the neighborhood these days.
