I've always worked in the business district in Singapore.. For the better part of my career, I have been working in Raffles Place.
The furthest away from Raffles Place I got was Raffles City/ Marina Square area.
From next week onwards, my team will be moving to an office in the suburbs, very near to where I live currently.
I've always "complained" about working in the business district. The rush hour traffic, the mad rush during lunch hour..
But I think working in the business district also did mean I could quite easily meet a good number of my friends for lunch.. if I wanted to. There are also lots of choices for good food in the area.
My new office will be next to a Sheng Shiong supermarket and there aren't very much nearby apart of some apartments and some factories.
It'd be nice to stay near the office for a change. But sadly, it'd only be for a maximum period of 2 months because I will be moving to somewhere rather far away... (by Singapore standards anyway).
So.. goodbye Raffles Place.. for now.
And goodbye to my great window view. I will miss you.
