Hi, I am Sreetama Ray! I am a trailing spouse, living the life of a first-time expat in sunny Singapore. This blog is my sketchbook diary where, every day, I will post one small sketch about my life.

My life is about love, hate, small quarrels and petty jealousies. It’s about identity, loneliness and the idea of “home”. It’s not always poetic, but at all times, it’s completely honest.

    Hello, I jumped over here all excited, because as a newbie blogger, you liked my sketch! (gosh that sounds vaguely stalkerish, sorry!) anyway I am so glad to see such an honest and colourful blog, with lovely sketches. I’m going to walk along with you for a while on this blogging journey. 😀 from Scotland, UK

  9. Dear Sreetama,

    My name is Joyce and I work for ExpatFinder.com.
    ExpatFinder.com is a free one stop website for people preparing to move or working and living overseas. We provide a myriad of services for expatriates and we have over 2,000 articles to help and support the people moving around the world and we are now creating an interview section to help the expats with real life experiences!
    We quite enjoy your blog about living in Singapore, it is very interesting and informative. Would it be possible to interview you to further share some of your tips and feature some of your first hand experience as an Expat and your interview will be published on our Expat Interview section as a guide for our expat readers. The questions are mainly about the day to day lifestyle of an expat. If it would be possible, could you also send some photographs that we can use?
    Of course, if you accept, we can add a link to your blog or some of your website.
    The questions are enclosed, feel free to respond freely. You can return the doc with your answers if you accept this invitation.
    Thanks in advance and do let me know if you prefer other means to conduct this interview and we would be happy to accommodate your terms.

    Best regards,
