Singaporean Stories around the world
The Singaporeans Overseas series features fellow Singaporeans based around the world as they share with us their decision to relocate, their experiences in these foreign countries, and what they miss most about home. Sit back and watch Singaporean musician Kartik Kuna in Sydney, Australia, as he pulls back the curtain and share what he does. Also, watch fellow Singaporean and foodie Azlin Bloor as she shares a snippet of her life in Bournemouth, England.
