It’s official: we are moving to Singapore! After 3 years straight of traveling, living in one place for 2 months has been AMAZING. No packing and unpacking. I can own liquids larger than 100 ml 😂, I have a laundry machine, I can cook at home, and I even had time to make FRIENDS! And now I get to do all this – in Singapore 😍 Singapore is the hub of Asia, and arguably a major hub of the world. That’s why @nasdaily is moving us, and his company there. STRATEGY MIS AMIGOS. Their airport is insane (it has a movie theatre and a butterfly garden), there’s almost no traffic (a blessing for an LA girl) and the people are amazingly nice (and smart!). We could be there two months or two years, but no matter how long it is it’s going to be SICK! See you soon, SINGAPORE! 📸: @foreverchasingadventure 👏🏼
She also revealed that their move is a strategic one because “Singapore is the hub of Asia, and arguably a major hub of the world”.

Mr Yassin also made this announcement in his Instagram account and mentioned that the couple will be coming to Singapore next month. He added that although Singapore is world’s most expensive city, but he thinks that “it’s the world’s best place for our purposes: to live and build up the Nas Daily Media Company”.

Announcement: We’re moving to Singapore! After 1,000 days of moving around, it’s time to find a place to call home for us and for my new company. There are many reasons why I chose Singapore over other places. But mainly due to my belief that this part of Asia might be the new America. Singapore is the world’s most expensive city (😱), but I also think it’s the world’s best place for our purposes: to live and to build up the Nas Daily Media Company. We’re moving in April for two months or two years or twenty. Nobody knows. But I do know I want to give this a shot. Thanks for all the support everyone! We don’t take it for granted.
The 27-year-old Palestinian-Israeli visits different countries and upload his experience in one-minute videos on his Facebook channel, which has over 12 million followers.
The blogger along with his American-Israeli girlfriend, who is also a video content creator, first arrived in Singapore in August 2018 and left a month later. During his short stay, he has been vocal about how he is “really fascinated” with the country. Some of the videos that he had created while here was on how Singapore’s passport is a dream for many, how “you’re not gonna get any road rage” in the country and how its landfills are so “insanely clean” that they look like resorts.
However, in one of his videos, he called Singapore an “almost perfect” country which drew a lot of criticism from netizens as they felt he didn’t capture the reality of living here. In addition, the appearance of Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in the video also angered the public.
Mr Yassin lashed out to the public and called them “crybabies” and told “too many people in Singapore lack perspective” and that he would “happily take your air-conditioned public transportation over living in the Middle East”.
He added, “Try sleeping one night with rockets falling near your village and you can’t sleep because of sirens. Try living in a state of war every few years with all your neighbour”.
