This being our 6th year away from singapore, it's very easy to be out of touch with what's happening @ home. Plus, we now only make 1 trip back to singapore a year (unlike when we were in hong kong, we go back quite often!)
reading the news online is one way and i follow regularly the blog by Lucky Tan . He's very insightful and gives viable alternative views.
Although i may not agree with everything he says, i find reading his articles gives a different perspective and opens my "eyes" to a side of singapore i may not be that aware of.
If you follow any other bloggers, let me know! :)
