I’ve been in Singapore for all of one year and five months (gosh, has it only been that long??) and I still get amused, confused, exasperated, baffled (insert more adjectives here) by local culture and customs. So good thing I stumbled on this website, written by a German expat on his experiences and observations about living and working here. His funny observations are spot-on and he gives useful advice and tips, which is perfect for a foreigner like me.

Not-so-random question/observation: Why are only white foreigners considered ang mos and not foreigners of other colors? Still haven’t figured this out…

My name is Terrie. I write for a living and blog for pleasure. Some days, I get up in the morning and know precisely what kind of day it is. At other times, I get knocked over for a loop. People seem to like confiding in me. When I was younger, I thought I knew everything and can tell you what you need to do if you ask me. Now that I'm older, I realize I don't know anything. That's been my motivation for the blog and for writing. To figure out the unknown and unknowable.
