My wife is from Singapore so every summer we travel there and bring the kids along for a three week vacation. We have so much fun with all of relatives, dining on the local authentic cuisine, it really has become a special time in our lives that we look forward to each year.
This past year when we went to Singapore I suggested that we take a look at buying some property. She was open to the idea, as it would be nice not having to rely on her relatives all the time. It would be a small real estate purchase, nothing outrageous.
I want to buy a villa that we could use all year round and invite people over and cook for them. My wife’s relatives have been very kind to us over the years so it would be nice to throw a dinner party for them. Taking them to a nice restaurant is fine, but in Singapore it would be great if we had a place to call our own.
Another reason is that our daughter is thinking about studying in Singapore for a semester so it would be good if she had her own place to stay. All of us can’t wait until we start looking at properties to buy!
