I've been living in Singapore for a year now. Wow, time flies. This time last year I was busy looking for an apartment. Probably the most exciting part about starting over...to find a new home, to adapt, to take chances, to try new things and live a balanced life, and after living abroad for few years now I'd say I'm no stranger to starting over, in fact the term change is so familiar that it deserves a slot on my speed-dial. My first month in Singapore was exciting, juggling between work, trying to settle and had few appointments with property agents. While most of my colleagues prefer to live near the city centre, I told my agent I'm looking for a nice quiet place with greenery, nature walk and of course good food, just so I don't have to travel all the way to the central on the weekend. When she suggested me this new area less than 10 minutes drive from Changi Airport - I just knew yepp...that's gonna be my new home.
So I found a perfect apartment with great facilities, amazing neighbor, walking distance to mall and greenery ! I absolutely enjoy my big girl's life, from making progress at work, creating cool things that matter with my dream team from Monday to Friday, traveling, going out, exercise, working on my side projects, except I'm a very lazy person when it comes to weekend that all I want to do just sleeping in on weekends and I realized I've missed a lot of things so at the beginning of 2017 I promise to change that a little bit. Surprise surpriseeee, this afternoon when I decided to walk around Punggol Settlement and test my new Sony A6000, I couldn't believe there's actually A BEACH just behind my house ! Okay, it's not a beach with white sands or clear water where you can always put those tiny bikinis but I swear this one's not bad...I actually felt incredibly relaxed while exploring Coney Island. If I have to describe my dream home, I guess that would be this one... Pretty close to the big city but I can always escape to nature whenever I need a break.
