“Japan had spoiled us, and we doubted that Singapore would be able to match the freshness and high quality that we took for granted in our food. After our relocation, we began to understand that while dining out was amazing and Singaporean supermarkets could offer an impressive variety of imports, it would require some research to find organic, locally grown produce.”
I started writing for the Singapore American Newspaper after I moved to Singapore in 2013. The publication is closely supported by the American expat community, but boasts a wide readership among international expats and Singaporeans alike. According to the Department of Statistics Singapore, foreigners made up nearly 40% of the country’s population in 2017 — that’s 2.18 million permanent residents and expatriates!
Published since 1958, the Singapore American Newspaper is one of the most professional and widely-read association newspapers in Singapore. SAN covers a wide variety of topics and is a monthly guide for events, happenings and current affairs in Singapore. The newspaper is written by the community, for the community.
