Tale of a Trailing Spouse

After 9 years and 3 countries, I’m making the transition from expatriate to repatriate. It’s a brand new chapter with new stories to tell! I now come to you from the home of baseball and birthplace of Frank Sinatra— Hoboken, New Jersey.

Blackberry Widows

It is like something out of Greek mythology only with a contemporary twist–a band of women warriors living, playing, and working together in a fantastical island somewhere in Southeast Asia. While those of the testosterone sex do exist, women actually rule society. However unlike the ancient Amazon legend, where a female warrior had to kill a man proving she was fit to marry one, Singapore is a land where expatriated women often come with their partners, but tragically lose them to the songs of small but powerful, modern-day Sirens named Blackberry, iPhone, Galaxy and Droid.

    Oh thank you so much! Truth be told, I’m not a club kind of gal, but I know lots of people who get a lot of joy from them.

Show me some love! Leave a reply.
