New focus for Singapore Watch

Thursday, January 10th, 2008

Hi all,

Firstly, I would like to apologize for the lack of updates on this site. I first started this blog 3 years ago, while I was still studying in the US, as a means of keeping updated and interested with the ongoings in Singapore, which seemed to tilt more towards politics.

After being back home in Singapore for 2 years however, apathy started to set in. The sun and moon will still rise, set and shine no matter how much a dog barks at it. Having seen many key issues in Singapore being raised, ‘discussed’ and then later being dismissed, or being dictated, I kind of relate to that barking dog.

Thus in 2008, I’ve decided to take a new direction with this blog. Instead of barking at the sun and moon, I’ve decided to deal with more relevant issues like money, which would make sure the barking dog is well taken care of.

Thus Singapore Watch ver2.0 would now be focusing more on personal finance and ensuring that one is financially prepared in life. With this new direction, expect to see more entries here! All previous entries are now categorized under Singapore Watch ver1.0.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year!
