jubilee

Sunday, January 31, 2016

My time in Singapore has passed by rather quickly and enjoyably. I've spent some days out in the city, either alone with a friend, and other days completely lazing at home. It was raining a lot too, which was really nice. I've come to realize how lovely Singapore, the city, is. I thoroughly enjoy walking around and exploring the city now. It really is a beautiful city. We've also just had our 50th National Day, the Golden Jubilee, which I spent with my sister Alina.

I flew back home to Singapore the day after my money was stolen in Phnom Penh, and my trip had came to an abrupt end. I was upset my trip had ended a month ahead in time, as we had already made plans to go to Vietnam and India after Cambodia, but my disappointment was quickly replaced by gratitude after my realization that I wasn't feeling fulfilled from my current method of traveling, in addition to the knowledge that I needed to spend some time at home since I had spent most of my time in Singapore in June working. So I returned home, feeling good about my trip and ready to spend the remaining of my summer break relaxing by myself and spending time with my friends and family.

I spent June working, July traveling, and decided that for August I would enjoy my time home, including a list of things that I had always wanted to do but never did because they were never a priority due to my previous commitments like school or work. Now that I was home just for a month, I decided to explore Singapore, a place I spent a lot of time detesting growing up.
