growing up life in SG

Closing our "Life in SG" Chapter

Thursday, July 24, 2014tee

It was October 2010 when I first stepped into Singapore, unsure of what the future would bring. All I knew I was in for an adventure and boy, was I right!

I used to imagine being all glitzed-up, all made-up, strutting in heels walking around in Singapore with a cup of coffee in hand. Call it daydreaming but I've always had Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City as my peg! :)) Obviously, life in Singapore wasn't all that. I didn't get my heels because of the endless walking and the coffee in hand because there was free coffee at the office. hah. 

I first started out in Singapore with a single luggage bag, and now, my life here is packed in boxes, -lots and lots of them. But it's not just things that made our stay here memorable, it was more than that. It was the experiences, the memories and friendships and connections we have built, lessons we have learned, and major life milestones we have reached. Here I can say I have become better equipped on life and became more mature, here my view became more wider, challenged myself a little bit more, embraced diversity, appreciated differences, and I was opened up to new experiences and possibilities.

Singapore will always hold a special place in our hearts and we'll be closing this chapter perhaps much more "grown up" and richer in terms of experiences and bursting with gratitude and thankfulness. Here we have found ourselves at home with every aspect - at work, with friends, at church, and here we have truly felt welcome and camaraderie and fellowship.

Time passed by so quick but I guess it's time to move on. We will be forever grateful and thankful. We would certainly miss everyone - our friends who made living in a foreign country easier and way more fun.

As with any change and with goodbyes, this is something hard to do and we'd definitely miss a lot. Singapore has grown on us, very much, and we'd probably miss the convenience in living in an orderly and very accessible place, the variety of food and places we enjoy, and yup - I'd even miss the shopping. :)) I could go on and on, but you get the drift.

How do you even say goodbye to such an awesome place and people?
It's been a good 3 years and 9 months. Thank you, Singapore! The next chapter awaits.
