Each year, about 10,000 Singaporeans study and work abroad and many never want to return to a pressure-cooker...

As determined that I was, I made up my mind that I am not returning to Singapore in this state of despair and be a laughing stock so I stayed. I met a Christian family who took me in and let me stay for free in their house for about 6 months so that I can get started. I adapted and made many adjustments, being bilingual was a great asset for me and I landed a job with a Chinese manufacturing company which hired me and went on to sponsor a US permanent residency (greencard) for me. I worked with them for about 12 years. I have no regrets leaving Singapore and eventually have a family in US. However, my packing up and left with a boyfriend was not the best example to follow (haha..)
