It’s been 185 days of ups and downs, highs and lows, everything you might expect from a BIG move from one country to another. House hunting, job hunting, and all the nifty gritty of setting up bank accounts, taxes, internet connection, mobile phones, insurances, etc. etc.
My how time flies.
We arrived at the close of summer and in a matter of weeks, the leaves started to fall. And slowly winter crept in to replace autumn.
Reflecting on our last six months, I can sum it up in one sentence. “What a learning experience!” And the learning continues. As they say “You are never too old to learn new things!”
While Singaporeans like to end their sentences with a "lah", kiwis on the other hand end it with an "ay". I have been replacing my "lahs" with "ays" lately, guess I'm going local now ;). Kiwinism (as how I like to call the kiwi slang) is quite an interesting topic that merits a blog entry of its own.
Driving in the left is ok, but wait till you get to the roundabout and then it’s a completely different story. The hubby puts it simply, always give way to the right. Yeah right! Confusing ay!
