How did it, come so fast?
I'm leaving Singapore in exactly a month's time.. Kinda sad, yeah but then again, I think it's also a good thing. I've always loved living in Australia, there are so many things that I enjoy. I miss my adorable 4 year old nephew (who is obsessed with trains and water parks!) and baby niece. I miss driving around the countryside, visiting wineries, mountains, hot springs. There's loads more to do over there (I don't really like hitting the malls) that I really enjoy. I can't wait try out surfing, skiing, skydiving, paint ball, trekking and all sorts of adventure sports over there. Well, it's not like you can't do it here, in Asia, but with the weather and high humidity, it just feels different and a whole lot more enjoyable when you do it in a cool climate.
Imagine having a picnic, in the sun, without having to worry about sweating..
Another thing I love about Aussie, well, Melbourne in particular is the really cool bohemian cafe and arts scene. There are loads of really good European restaurants around, and nice little quaint cafes where you can sit and relax and people watch, and the buzzing arts scene is crazy. Street performers who are so talented you just can't help but stop and watch, and admire. The thing is, they are so passionate about what they do, it's infectious. Another thing is that you can sense their motivations, they don't particularly care about whether or not you drop a coin in their box to show your appreciation, they just want to perform and see the smile on people's faces.
I kinda wish Singapore would have a friendlier culture :( Like in Melbourne, I can think of countless occasions over there when I was walking down the street, just minding my own business, and old ladies would stop by and want to strike up a conversation with me. They genuinely want to say Hi and find out how I am doing. It just warms my heart and I love that culture. In Singapore we get so busy sometimes we forget how to love. It gets so crowded and uncomfortable and all that we just want to be alone, be detached from it all, I'm guilty of it as well :(
But yeah it is a bummer to leave Singapore behind as well. I honestly don't know what I'd do without my favourite prata.. Sigh, chicken rice... Curry rice... So many so many... Thank god I've learnt how to cook so it probably won't be so bad.
I will most definitely miss acting, working, all the wonderful opportunities Singapore has provided me. I will miss my Joshies, who have showered me with so much love and affection that it is impossible not to love them as well. My dear Joshies, who have spent countless hours on different projects to bring a smile in my heart. I will never forget you. And fret not, I will be back soon, hopefully this coming year, with another project in the works, you'll be seeing a lot more of me.
