I’m an ex-pat Kiwi, living and working in the tropical climes of South East Asia. I’ve long harbored dreams of heading back to NZ when the time is right (still a few years away I think) and living the good life on my own farm.

I’ve been a city-slicker all my life, so I have effectively zero working knowledge about farming and agriculture or the lifestyle around it. Stumbled upon LSB and it looks like it’s the right place to be to learn a few things from folks who are already living the dream.

Looking forward to it!

T.O.R. - I'm based in Singapore, working in the finance industry. Been here over 6 years now and it's been good to me. Still, harbouring thoughts of heading back home at some point in the not too distant future and would love to have a block/farm of my own when I do get back.
