I moved from Bangalore. After almost 27 years of firm rooting to the city. After a long wait!
My personal take on moving out of home is just do it earlier than later. Reason is simple. Later the first movement, tougher the new settlement.
I really have no reason to crib. I wanted to move to a English speaking place. I got it. I wanted a warm place and no sub zero temperatures. I got it. Beach. I got it. Yet, two weeks later I had a problem. Pissed off with everything i could find. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the desi-housewife-out-of-homeland syndrome. When you think you don't have much or know much outside our own home, you have no reason to step out with a purpose, what do you do? Get angry at the whole world?
Fine, I am not going any deeper into my problems. We are comfortable, living in the heart of the central business district, malls and very good food joints right outside our door, old Singapore architecture surrounding us, maid to service our apartment and other good things I can't remember now. I enrolled as a volunteer at SG cares and as a part-time student at NAFA ( nanyang academy of fine arts) and these shouldnkeep me well occupied till I land a job or till I find eternal happiness :-)
