Before moving to Singapore, the city-state was a bit of an enigma to me. My brief research prepared me for an extremely strict society with rules and regulations unheard of in the Western world.

Singapore is an incredible city to live in; super modern, clean, safe, lots of greenery right in the city, good (and cheap) food, great nightlife, friendly locals, great weather and countless travel opportunities.

I’ve been asked some variation of the question “How’s Dublin?!” dozens of times in the month that I’ve been here. From small talk with strangers at bars to friends from home curious to hear, I’ve been getting by with “It’s good! Dublin is really small but I’m having a really nice time and I like it a lot.” That’s nowhere near the full story, of course, but come on, it’s a loaded question! Being in a new place is complicated and confusing and exciting and amazing in varying degrees.
