Dorothea, 53 years old, Germany,
Senior project Manager, Evonik Industries Singapore
"Evonik is one of the world's leading specialty chemicals companies. I am Senior Project Manager in construction of chemical plants. I really enjoy my job!
My office was located in the West of Singapore: on Jurong Island and in Jurong International Business Park. For this job, I was based both in Singapore and in Europe: I spent 3 weeks in Singapore and 1 week in Germany. I was in charge of both teams. My job in Singapore is now completed: I am back to Germany.
Before finding LMB Housing Services, I spent 2 years doing this same job in Singapore and in Germany but I lived in a hotel when I was in Singapore...
It was a relief to find LMB: I finally had a real home in Singapore!
I lived in a 2 bedroom serviced apartment in One North Residences during 1 year and 1 month, until June 2015.
It was bright, clean and green. Perfect!
I am 53 years old, married with 4 kids: 3 girls and 1 boy. My family came to visit me while I was working in Singapore but they stayed only a few weeks. I spent more time with them while I was in Germany 1 week every month.
My first steps in Singapore..? During my first day in Singapore, I remember that the taxi broke down in the middle of the highway. I was feeling like "Was it really the right decision to come to Singapore..?". This was just a small incident, no big deal. Then I discovered the city. I had to adapt to the climate first: the weather and climate were so different here compared to Europe.
Singapore is a really nice and bustling city, there is a lot to discover. There is a fantastic and tremendous architecture in city area, and it is totally different in outskirts.
I really enjoyed this long stay in Singapore!
About me? I would say that I am friendly, open minded, interested in other people, and I like to have challenges. I like reading. Horse riding and golf are my favorite sports.
I would recommend LMB Housing Services to people who need a home while they are assigned to Singapore for several months."
