8 years on a work pass: What’s next?

The 1st of March is my anniversary in Singapore. Yes, I’m cheesy as I celebrate that each year. I moved here in 2012 to chase a dream of living and working in the Lion City. I’ve gained unforgettable life experiences and I’ve proudly contributed my own keep in the past eight years. But after my permanent residency application was rejected in 2016, PLUS, growing anxiety that no matter how naturally I integrate and love Singapore my home, *truly*… I remain a statistic.

Eight years on an S-Pass has had its many highs for which I’m thankful for. But at 34, is it time to start thinking about where I want to permanently settle down? It’s easy for me to settle down in the States or in the Philippines. But where do I want to go next? What am I thinking about? What did I wish I knew when I first started here?
