If you'd asked me end of last year what's in store for me in 2012, being sent to work in Asia would be very low on the list - to be honest, it wouldn't have been on the list at all!
And still, early January 2012 the opportunity came up and I was asked whether I'd be ready to go to Singapore for three months. Beginning mid-February.
Yes, I was. I am.
So now I'm in the middle of getting prepared and organized. It's a good thing I don't have to worry about the 'formalities' like lodging, flight and immigration requirements - working for a big company I can leave that to our experts... And they are doing their job, yesterday and today I received emails, forms to fill in, schedules to discuss... Apparently all signs are on green for me to fly to Singapore around the 13th of February!
What an adventure!
