3 years in France!

3 years ago we moved from Austin to France. It had been three very important years with many milestone in my life:

- Pick up French and can now get things done without hubby. Sure there are still rooms for improvement and long way to go before I can speak and write eloquently, but if I continue to live in this country it will come along I presume.

- Got married to someone who likes me as I'm.

- Finally set one foot in the working world.

- Traveled with my family in France and part of Europe

- Received and shared the Malaysian cultures with some of the friends

- Learnt to drive with a manual car on the left hand side. Overcame the fear of driving in France.

- eventually set up a website and several blogs and met friends in the cyber space.

- gradually seeing the good sides of socialism

- discovered plenty of good foods!

I would say the hardest years had gone and it is just a matter of time I will see France as my second home. Good luck to me!

  5. It took me 3 years to get used to living in France and I think it was on my 5th year here that I started to feel home in France and I really miss France when I stayed in Singapore in the summer.

    hehehe ... I'm in my 6th year here and I'm still far from speaking and writing French eloquently :(

    I have gotten my licence here 3 years ago and I'm still afraid of driving around. :(

    I know it is not easy to live in a foreign country, I was in the UK, I know...

    Looking forward to hear more happy stories from you.
