Last 22nd February marked my first year of living in Singapore. I can’t believe it has been a year already. It seems like it was just yesterday. I still remember my last few days in Manila, and how sad I felt when the day came. I actually knew from the very start that at some point in my life I would be working and living in Singapore, or in another foreign country for that matter. With this, I am somehow prepared. Or so I thought.
I went to Singapore last year to retain my permanent residence, and also for work. I am actually no tourist to Singapore as I have been visiting the country since I was a kid because my father works here. But I realised, taking a short vacation and actually living in the country are two different things.
And because this is my first year, I will try to reflect everything in here that I have experienced (and still experiencing) and my realisations since living in Singapore.
