Singapore working holiday

As I've said before, I'm going to New Zealand on a "working holiday" visa. This means I can take temporary work while in New Zealand to pay for my travels. Lots of countries offer such a setup, but typically not to Americans. In fact, NZ and Australia are the only countries Americans can get a WHV without being a student. That's part of why I'm going to New Zealand first.

But now, Singapore looks to be beginning a similar scheme that will allow Americans to participate. Vagablogging had a post on this last week. I definitely am going to be considering this after I'm done with New Zealand. I've heard a lot of great things about Singapore (despite their harsh penalties for even seemingly mild offenses).
