Happy 48th birthday Singapore!
This past year, there was a possibility that I would relocate myself to another Asian country or head back to Canada. But I stayed. And you made me feel at home like a prodigal son that has returned.
At the moment, I can hardly say I am “travelling Asia” anymore. When asked, the more correct response should be that I have “relocated to Asia” with Singapore as my defacto home. It is here I can be Canadian when the situation warrants it, and seem local by speaking in Singlish and Mandarin when it is required.
Whether it is the food, the people I have met on this journey, or the sheer awesomeness of your public transit, I salute you. Thanks for being an awesome place!
