Description : For years, Singapore with its many opportunities has attracted a large expat population. Some test it out for a few years and then move on, others sink in their roots and immerse themselves in the vibrant mix of local culture. “Dear Ms Expat” is a collection of 10 real-life stories from women who have made tropical Singapore their home. They each left their comfort zone in search of adventure, following a partner or in pursuit of a bright new career for themselves. The tales are as diverse as the women’s backgrounds, with childhood spent either on rolling Australian farms, amidst Swiss mountains, or in small-town America. These women have reinvented themselves to become entrepreneurs, photographers, advocates, writers and leaders. Transplanted to a new environment, they worked hard to better themselves—whether it is for personal fulfilment, for their families, for the expat community, or for womankind at large. This book seeks to inspire and motivate by highlighting the sheer grit, spirit and determination of all the women featured.

Description : The largest Pakistani community in the UK is to be found in Birmingham. Muslim pupils are already the majority religious group in the local schools. Ever since the days of the Lunar Men, Birmingham has been a leader of cities. But, can it sustain this success without the active involvement of its Pakistani community? This extensively researched letter from one of its 'adopted' sons is directed at everyone who cares for the city. It catalogues the development of Pakistani-Birmingham over the past 60 years. It also draws attention to their wholesale exclusion from centres of opportunities and power across the city.
