Return to Singapore

Return to SingaporeHey, guess what? I’m going to Singapore today.

This wonderful country was my home from 2003 to 2006. We’ve both changed over the years — from what I’m told, Singapore has grown so much that parts of it will be unrecognizable to me.

That fluttery feeling in the pit of my stomach is equal parts anticipation and apprehension. Will I still feel the same, or has the spark between us died? Stay tuned for more …

  1. Know exactly what you mean. After my first long stint of living here in Sri Lanka, I used to visit every couple of years, and each time I wondered whether the spell had been broken … Hope you have fun at least:)

    I’m so excited for you! Don’t worry, much will still be the same. The air, as you step off the plane, will so smell like Singapore you’ll be transported right back. (or, if you’re flying Singapore Airlines, you will feel right at home as soon as you step ON the plane). Can’t wait for the report back:-)

    It’ll be interesting to hear how it goes. My family has the possibility of moving to Singapore. My wife loves the idea of a maid. We have a baby and two older kids – all the domestics are a burden. She’d prefer to live in the UK or France, but I don’t have that option at the moment. 🙂

  4. Safe travel and have a nice trip!

    Take me with youuuuuuuuu!!!!

  7. Have a great trip! – I’m very interested to read about how you feel to be back there. I returned to Shanghai last September for the first time since we lived there. It was lovely to be back but a little strange to stay in someone else’s home and to know that I didn’t live there anymore.

  8. You’ll be in my neck of the woods (kind of). Come over and say hi!
