Hi! Welcome to my blog!
I am Sindy. This blog is about how I moved to Germany. I was born in Hong Kong and grew up there.
Like many people, I had a very normal life in Hong Kong. I went to school, then university, then I found a job and started working in Hong Kong.
As a certified public accountant, I was working at an audit firm.
Going to work, hating my job, working overtime and overtime, going home and sleep, and the days were repeating.
I was not happy. I knew this was not what I want. Not the job I like, not the environment and culture that I would like to live in.
I had a dream, to see other places, to do something that not most people are doing. To do something “not normal”. To chase for my dream. To find the meaning of life.
Finally, in 2010, I made up my mind. I quit my job and enrolled in a master’s program at a German University. This was the decision that changed my life, forever.
Here I am now. I have moved to Germany.
I found a job in Germany. My company also sent me to work in the U.S. for a year as an expat. Afterward, I met my husband in Germany. We make a small family and have two lovely girls. We bought a house here. We settled down here.
I got often many questions from people:
Why do you move to Germany?
How is life there?
Do you speak German?
How did you make up this decision to quit your job and move?
How did you make this alone?
What is the difference between Germany/Hong Kong/ US?
How did I manage to stay in Germany?
The question list goes on…….
I have always a dream, to write a book.
I love to write. And here in my blog, I can achieve my dream for writing. I am going to tell you all about Germany.
The difference between Germany and Hong Kong (and also the U.S.).
How you can do the same to change your life.
How you can chase your dream.
It is not that impossible like you think, and you don’t need a lot of money. I did not get any financial support, no loan, no money from parents.
Thanks for coming and I am sure you will enjoy reading my blog.
You are welcome to ask me any questions, or just write me anything!
*Update: I decided to take another adventure and moved to the US from Germany at the end of 2022. But don’t worry! I am still supporting you with your life in Germany via this blog. I call Germany home and plan to be back within a few years. Check out this post to learn more 🙂
