You are most welcome, so long as you don't talk about your football team.;)

Yes 4 years. We left in September 2008
The Singapore climate is too draining. Will also be nice to be a bit closer to our families.

yes. Sinagpore has been good but the weather is oppressive 12 months of the year, the city is crowded, very expensive, no usable beaches (you really wouldn't want to swim in the sea here), cars prohibitively expensive (a toyota yaris would be around AED 250,000 new) and the combination of using public transport and the climate mean there is a constant flow of flu/cold viruses being passed around.

looking forward to arriving back in Dubai, which is also a lot closer to our families.
