Product Description

What begins as an innocent food trip to partake of roti pratas, Hainanese chicken rice, and oyster omelettes turns into a life changing decision. International food and travel writer Maida Pineda captures the thrills, quirks, and adjustments of her big move to Singapore. Her candid and honest story covers everything from the inescapable conversations with cab drivers, to finding a place to rent, and even the art of saving a seat at hawker centres. Through her everyday adventures in this small island, she encounters a diverse mix of expatriates from all over the world, including a photographer, a linguist who speaks eight languages, and a meditation teacher. She tells the story of their lives in this compact country, closely interconnected, where everyone seems to be linked in less than six degrees of separation.
