This hilarious new book records the tongue-in-cheek journey of an expat in Singapore, told through vignettes, snapshots and Top 10 lists: “10 sure signs you’re in a Singapore taxi”; “Things first-time visitors to Singapore say”; “10 signs you’ve overstayed”; “Politically-incorrect expat profiling by nationality”; and many more. Based on the author Jennifer Gargiulo’s popular blog of the same name, Diary of an Expat in Singapore packs in a wealth of quirky observations, witty one-liners, and laugh-out-loud misunderstandings as the author tries to adjust to life in a strange new land and raise two kids while at it. Marvel as Jennifer enlists the help of her young son, Alexander (who learns Chinese at school), to find out what her hairdressers are saying about her at the salon! Expats will share many of the experiences of the author told in this book, but few will have heard them told with more humour and flair. And Singaporeans will also find much to enjoy and laugh over, when local customs and foibles are seen anew through the author’s eyes

"Expat" is a novel originally designed to portray the overseas life of an American expatriate. In addition to relating the unique accounts of living and working outside the U.S., the book has evolved into an autobiography describing the author's expatriation from his native land, his family, his religion, and ultimately, the world (spiritually speaking). This book is [Part 3] of a 4-part compilation: - Part 1: Growing Up - Part 2: Never Growing Up - Part 3: Growing Pains - Part 4: The Growing Pain [Part 3: Growing Pains] Volume 3 depicts life during the first overseas assignment (1979 – 1981). Foreshadows to future experiences and flashbacks are playfully interspersed. The story is power-packed with adventure, romance, and of course, music. In essence, Expat - Part 3 is a very touching and poignant love and adventure story. Twenty-five (25) original songs are featured in Part 3, along with several poems. Links are provided to each song recording on Sound Cloud – a free website. Join Raji - our hero / venturer – as he somehow finds his way in and out of trouble overseas. Whether he's battling authorities, girls, or his own conscience, you're sure to find it both hilarious and sentimental.

An Expat's Life, Luxembourg & The White Rose is a refreshing and forthright take on the Englishman Abroad genre. Reading David Robinson's relaxed prose is like sitting down for a drink or two with the author in the pub of the title. Indeed, as the tome progresses, so the reader warms to Robinson's down-to-earth character. The author's very personal view of an expat's life in Luxembourg is not overbearing, and even the most informed reader will learn something new about the history of the Grand Duchy, its bureaucracy and social conventions and attitudes. The book is brimful with little snippets of useful information and trivia for those unfamiliar with the country, and Robinson's anecdotes will spark empathy with readers who live, or have lived, in Luxembourg. -Duncan Roberts, editor of 352 Magazine.

These tales of Wonder, Woe and WTF?! share a little glimpse into the lives of other moms, who are a lot like you. Through their tales, we're reminded to savour the little things (like capturing extra morning snuggles), to let go of the stresses (they won't be in that unfortunate phase forever), and to be grateful for the laughs that the unexpected brings (because laughing is better than crying and it may be the only workout our abs get!). So shake up an easy-to-make martini, put your feet up (quickly, before the kids find you) and join us on our journey as we toast to the many clink-worthy moments that motherhood brings.

In Other Words is at heart a love story—of a writer’s passion for another language. For Jhumpa Lahiri, that love was for Italian, which first captivated her during a trip to Florence after college. Although Lahiri studied Italian for many years afterward, true mastery eluded her. So in 2012, she decided to move to Rome where she began to read, and to write—initially in her journal—solely in Italian. In Other Words, an autobiographical work written in Italian, investigates the process of learning to express oneself in another language, and describes the journey of a writer seeking a new voice. It is a book about exile, linguistic and otherwise, written with an intensity and clarity not seen since Nabokov. A startling act of self-reflection and a provocative exploration of belonging and reinvention. Translated from the Italian by Ann Goldstein.

By reading this book, you will discover there is more to life than a boring nine-to-five job. I found this out after losing my job in 1983 due to a back injury, which resulted in my becoming an expat. I earned more money than I did in England and travelled to a variety of countries at no expense to myself. In the course of nineteen years, I worked on interior fit-out contracts to a number of five-star hotels and several palaces. During this incredible period in my life, I experienced more of life than many do in a lifetime. By working with workers from another country than my own, it made me realise that not everyone was as lucky as me. Another major turning point in my life occurred when on a contract down on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. There, my late wife and I enjoyed life so much we had a house built. This proved a great decision. After twenty-five years, I still live in Turkey, only now married to a Turkish lady and living in Istanbul. In general, I lived life to the full, and by being positive, so can you.
