Singapore is an international community, with a large number of ex-pats living there. The week after my visit the BBC interviewed a number of people working there to learn of their experiences.
Two of my close friends, Tom and Eeva Crawley, had lived in Singapore for over a year when I visited. Tom, originally from Bristol in the UK was working at the British High Commission and Eeva, originally from Finland where she met Tom, was working at Merc, a large pharmaceutical company after completing an MBA.
What did they make of the ambition question? How did their ambitions help them get to Singapore?
