A Feature in Internations.org

I was recently contacted by Internations.org for an interview about my expat experience in Singapore. Internations.org has over 1.7 Million members, and is the no.1 worldwide community for expats, offering its members the opportunity to network, socialize and find expat-relevant information offline and online. 

For my friends living overseas looking to make friends with other expats in their adoptive cities, I recommend becoming an Internations.org member. They organize activities for expats, and their website also has a LOT of useful tips about living abroad. 

 

Here's an excerpt from my feature...


Please tell us a little bit about yourself. Who you are, where you come from, when you moved to Singapore, etc.

My name is Ays, I’m originally from the Philippines. I’ve been living and working in Singapore since 2006. I used to be an IT professional in the banking industry. I recently became a mom, so I’m taking an extended break from work.

I write about life in the Lion City, as well as my kitchen adventures. And since Singapore is a great jump-off point to anywhere in Asia, I also write about the places I’ve visited and give some useful tips for travelling.

When and why did you decide to start blogging about your experiences?

I’ve always loved writing, putting my experiences and thoughts on paper has been a habit since childhood. It was a natural transition for me to go into blogging. I’ve done it even before I came to Singapore. I write/blog mostly to relieve stress from work, and also to update my family and friends of what I’ve been up to.  They are scattered all over the globe, so the blog is my way of keeping them up-to-date on my activities.

Do you have any favorite blog entries of yours?
I especially like the posts that give my friends tips about living in Singapore. I also had a series of guest posts, where my friends talk about their own Singapore experiences:
