E: National Day In Singapore

IMG_7798

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. IMG_7735Waiting for celebrations to start
IMG_7754The first few fireworks had big gaps in between and it got quite frustrating with the camera
IMG_7856But as usual the Asians didn’t disappoint there was a massive display at the end
IMG_7593On our way there, we passed these gardens with pretty elaborate Singaporean flag colouring
IMG_7600Malls are pretty much the replacement for any type of high street here

Pretty cool crowd if I say so myself.IMG_7684Little similar to the Red Arrows back home?

C: Snowfall in the North

IMG_7730Finally we got a thick coating of snow up in the north, mind you this was a while ago when the pictures were taken. Had a great couple of hours out in the snow before returning inside to complete work. I have been going through a bit of a mental block lately creatively and academically. Perhaps it’s because I’ve got ‘used to’ life again. Anyhow enjoy the photos of a very fun and very cold day~
