My Life so far…
I am now in my 40’s – hit the mid point with out much fan fair – I am currently residing in picturesque Singapore.
Born in the Land of the Long white Cloud New Zealand I spent most of my growing years in a small town called Stratford which is under a beautiful mountain called Mount Taranaki – it was called Mt Egmont after the person who climbed it first but now it has changed to Mt Taranaki. When i could escape (just kidding) I ventured to Wellington and Auckland, until even these cities where not big enough for me and over to Sydney I went – wow 20 years in Sydney was an amazing roller coaster.
Now i am in Singapore and love the Asian style Singapore offers expats. Gone are the heady days when expats lived in luxury (some still do but not so many) – Being in Singapore allows me to travel to other Asian Destinations which is what i really enjoy most – low cost enticing resorts by the sea. I am not very good at learning a new language so I only speak english – I hope to learn mandarin soon.
I enjoy meeting people and I think they enjoy meeting me as I have an amusing and entertaining personality. If you would like to impress me all you need to do is send me chocolates !
