Preparations to move

It is now exactly one week before my move to Singapore. Anyone who has ever moved to a foreign country will recognize this: you will have to erase every single membership and subscription that you have! In my case: of course all the insurances, but also cable, internet, alarm services, landline, my vhf permit for the boat... And you would say in this day and age this can all be done by email and internet. Well... Not! At least not in the Netherlands. Whereas a short phone call can get you hooked up as a paying member to pretty much anything for the rest of your life, getting rid of such a subscription usually implies paper forms, signatures, stamps (do you remember from the old days?). Obviously registered mail is highly recommended....

Now going through my house, sieving out all stuff I can do without. Which is quite a lot, illustrated by the unopened boxes from my last move!
The good news: I do have a temporary place to stay now: Far East Plaza at Scotts Road. Really down town!!!
Copy and paste this... you will see the street view. Could not make an elegant link here yet, but I will surely master that soon!,-95.677068&sspn=35.494074,79.013672&vpsrc=6&ie=UTF8&hq=Far+East+Plaza&hnear=Scotts+Rd,+Singapore&t=h&fll=1.307581,103.833922&fspn=0.002735,0.004823&st=116283833822554456703&rq=1&ev=zi&split=1&ll=1.307297,103.833048&spn=0.002606,0.004823&z=18&iwloc=A&layer=c&cbll=1.307297,103.833048&panoid=e1HgD19o3uO9cCohqBZnhg&cbp=12,79.43,,0,8.82
