I have lived in Singapore for over 13 years now, it has become my home. My wife is Singaporean, my kids hold Singapore passports and her family is also based in Singapore.

I hate a last minute bail, they come in many forms but the last minute bail before a sports match ires the most.

There is a guy that lives down the road from me, he is a keen runner and can be often seen jogging in and around the neighborhood.
