The Journey Continues
In the flash of an eye, 5 years have passed. It's now 2015, and the speed with which it's zipped past both amazes and horrifies me. So much has happened and changed in between, yet needless to say, many things haven't either.
If anything, the wanderlust has not dampened, and still finds opportunities to rear its head and prod me into sojourning, amidst the hectic and frenetic lifestyle here. Living in Singapore initially seemed to make this impossible to do... Being on a small island and predominantly metropolitan city, where would you find places to wander and to let your soul find space from the daily drivel and ever-growing population? Yet, in the past few years, I've found little treasure troves of hidden spots, quiet places for reflections, streets and sights to explore, and a myriad of eating places to settle cravings as well as to increase the repertoire of gastronomic experiences.
And so, let's see if little snippets of some explorations can find their way here. Not as a food blog or travelogue, but just as a place to keep and share memories of the little things which remind me that there is definitely more to Singapore than what we often limit ourselves to seeing. When you want to know a country well, don't just spend your time on its main streets. Immerse yourself in its heartlands. Walk and look around you. Sit and listen to the conversations that go on in the surroundings (haha yes, I do eavesdrop and watch random people at times). Look for the little overlooked sights and hidden corners. Then all these experiences would help you to put together a bigger, wider, and more colourful picture of the life that goes in on that place. Whether in Singapore, or in another country or region.
Maybe there'll be more posts about life here. Or maybe I'll get caught up with life outside of social media again, and the next time you see an update might be after another couple of years from now... who knows, hey? :)
