Almost five years here….

How quick times flies? In less than two weeks, we’ll be here for five years.

At a high level, here’s what we’ve done:

- a job change for me (and a couple failed attempts at others)

- five managers (goes to show how often reorgs are)

- a couple of job changes for Sharon

- got our driving licenses

- bought our own car (no COE! In Singapore's context.. colleagues)

- stayed in two rental locations

- a trip once a year at least for me back to Singapore

- Sharon will probably say that another big item would be my increasingly larger video game collection

Wow.. that’s it? I’ll take the next two weeks as an opportunity to do a recap. Should be fun for my newly joined colleagues to have a glimpse of the life in the space that I'm in.

When do you get your green card? :P

I don't know.. we are near the finishing line for a long while already.

If you do plan to move over, and plan to get a green card quicker, make sure you're in a management role!

Techies are on the normal track while management dudes get onto the express track.
