Since I’ve been back in Singapore, I’ve learnt to appreciate the familiarity of the roads, the streets, the people and the buildings. But what I miss the most is the cleanliness, believe it or not. Singapore is just so clean as compared to other countries and to a clean-freak like me, this is possibly the closest place on Earth to Heaven.
I would say I am glad to be back home but I will always travel to enjoy myself as well. I would like to visit Japan again, go to their hot springs and just soak myself in there when it’s winter. I want to strut down the unfamiliar streets and not have a care that I can’t understand whatever shit they’re saying. I want to take pictures of the sakura flowers in Spring and see the scenic views.
I would also like to visit Korea, even though I heard the people there aren’t exactly the friendly type. But I want to at least see with my own eyes how the place looks like. I want to try their spicy rice cakes and compare them to Singapore.
Most of all, I would like to come back home each time and once again enjoy the sense of belonging I get. I would like to like to do this with my sister, whose life revolves around her boyfriend. I would like to have just both of us go together and experience all these things, do stupid and daring things that we will look back on with fondness.
I’m 19 but I feel old. It seemed like only a few years ago when I was a young child of 8 and people always said I was so small. I wished to grow up quickly then. But not anymore because I want to stay like this so I can travel the world and live a fun, happy and fulfilled life. I want to do that with Rachel, but apparently, she only sees Edison.
I sound like an envious lover. Wth.
