I have been here in Singapore for quite nearly a week now and I have almost gotten the basics down. I am living in a small one bedroom apartment about three and a half blocks away from the skyscraper where my office is located. It is rather expensive, but of course it is not like I was going to find anything particularly cheap in this city. The recruitment agencies probably exaggerated a bit on some of the better qualities of the city to be honest. It is extremely cramped here and I am thinking that it is really going to be difficult for me to get used to it. Of course I come from a rather expansive place called New Mexico and we have about five hundred acres for every person in parts of the state.
