Big news everyone, I’m currently on the other side of the world. Scared as hell and alone but not having too bad a time. In case you didn’t know I’ve moved to Singapore for my second year of studies. It’s a pretty big culture shock and though things are pretty much just how I expected them here (a lot cloudier though) I’m handling it a bit worse than I thought I would.
I guess my first year at university was far more than I ever expected so naturally I’m missing course friends and flatmates and hating the fact I’ll be missing out on plans with them back home. Each day spent here gets a bit better. Yesterday me and some other exchange students went to see the fireworks because it was the Singaporean national day.
They were pretty impressive. I’ll be posting some catch up posts later on, it’s been pretty busy but hopefully I’ll have some more time to be posting photos. Waiting for celebrations to start
The first few fireworks had big gaps in between and it got quite frustrating with the camera
But as usual the Asians didn’t disappoint there was a massive display at the end
On our way there, we passed these gardens with pretty elaborate Singaporean flag colouring
Malls are pretty much the replacement for any type of high street here
This little number was a little intimidating to a non-local such as myself
