Hi!!! In case you didn't already know from my crazy instagram [and facebook] updates, I've been back in Singapore for a bit over a week now! Well, I am currently typing this from Penang Malaysia, when I finally have the time to settle down and have some time to myself. Haha! I've been going out every day since the first day I got back to Singapore on 9th May 2013! Not saying that I didn’t love it being so happening… but just that I didn't have time to write this blog..! [hopefully at least SOME of you are reading this.. :P]
Man… I can't believe it's been 9 months since I've been away from Singapore! What an experience! AND I've already completed my first year of University in Canada!!! Say WHAT?!?!?! 0.o I can't stress this enough… time really.. FLIES!
After meeting up a bunch of friends, I learned that not everyone knows what the heck I am doing/studying in Ottawa… HAHAHA!!!
Back in Singapore Polytechnic [SP], I got my diploma in Experience & Product Design… Some people thought that I had been furthering my studies in that same field or something… but no!!!!!!!
I am currently pursuing my music degree [with a concentration in vocal performance] in Canada!!!! Woots!!! Yes, I am finally following my dreams.. It's been such an amazing experience so far and every day I am asking myself why didn't I make this decision earlier… okay, I guess I do know why I didn't do so earlier… hahaha. But that's another story, if anyone is interested, anyways…. Though at the same time, I have a feeling you all would have a general idea why I had not gone in this path earlier… [in summary, SOCIETY and PEERS… but it's okay. Ahaha]
I love Canada so much more than I thought I would have! Well, Ottawa, in particular. :) Love the culture and lifestyle.. So laid back.. And most of all, I love the people!!! Everyone is so nice and friendly. :) I felt so welcome from day 1 and I feel like I fit right in. Especially in my school, I feel that for once, I finally belong somewhere…
My main complaint, as most of you would have known by now… is the FOOD!! Argh!!! I got SO SICK of the Canadian food!!! D: So little choices.. And they are not even good. D: SOBS!!! I missed Asian food, especially Singapore's food SO FREAKING MUCH!!!! ARGHHHH..!! You have no idea how happy I am now, getting to eat all this good food. Hahaha. I KNOW I am going to put on so much weight during this summer break here. :P hehehe… Can you believe that I had lost up to 6kg during the time period of christmas till just before coming back to Singapore? LOL. Well, I must say that I am more physically active while I was in Canada… but at the same time, I was on some kind of diet.. Because I did not want to eat any of the food. D: ugh. Know how pizza is like some kind of a luxury to eat in Singapore? It's like.. 'zomgz yum! Pizza!!!!! :DD YAYYYYYYY' it seriously used to be one of my favourite foods. HAHA. But now I'm kind of like.. 'eew pizza. D:'
LOLZ! Anyways, there is so much to say but I don't want to bore you all with details…
I missed Singapore mostly because of my family, friends, guinea pigs and FOOD!!!!! Lolol!! But I'll have to admit… by the third day I've been back, I was already missing Ottawa… I could actually feel the culture shock here, much more than what I felt when I went over to Canada.. =/
Mainly because of the people… the general public… everyone just seems so… cold, unwelcoming, stressed out, sad and angry. D':
I seriously wanted to give everyone a massive bear hug to cheer them up..! But I stopped myself before doing that, because I then realized that people here might think I am crazy and call the police on me for doing that. D: not saying that EVERYONE is like that.. But there are way more than I expected, I guess…
Anyways, enough of ranting… I have been going out every day… met up with many awesome friends and people. :D Some days I met up 2 different groups of people in a day.. So busy!! Got home at nearly midnight almost every night! Ahahaha. XD had so much fun. Some people I've not met in such a long time. It was really nice. But still so many more of you I need to meet up with!!! ^^
Currently, I am in Penang, Malaysia for about a one week holiday with my parents! Mainly just relaxing and enjoying our holiday home, and to visit some relatives, and of course to eat some good food! ^^ om nom nom.
I don't have internet access in my home here… but I can probably go get some internet when I go downstairs when I have some free time… So expect to see massive instagram updates all at once. HAHAHA. :) So yeah, please do not panic if I seem unreachable…! I am alive, well, and just enjoying myself here! ^^ HAHA. If anything's an emergency, though… Just text my temporary Singapore number [if you have it] and I will get back to you as soon as I can…!
Okay, I am feeling lazy now. I am typing this at home, offline … but I am going to post it soon after I am done typing it.. Shall go downstairs to use the internet. Haha!!! Well, hopefully I will have the chance and inspiration to blog again soon-ish. Haha!! Till then, Cheerios!! Be sure to follow me on instagram to see my updates! :D I think that you will enjoy them! ^.^
