Today is the day when I first left my parents. Today is the day when I first started living independently. Today is the day when I landed in a foreign land. Today is the day 6 years ago that I first came to Singapore.
When I first came here, I never thought I would be spending so many long years here. Just wanted it to be a small stint and leave to another country. Everyone asked me if I am settling here and if I liked it. The answer is NO. Definitely I would not settle in Singapore and the only reason I liked it is for the proximity to India and many other travel destinations.
Now the next question would be what made me stay for so long. I do not have a definitive answer for that. I have been surrounded by very good people which made my stay comfortable. Travel bug has bit me and wanted to cover Southeast Asia before I leave Singapore. Also most important changes in my life has happened here which needed some time to settle in. Got married and now have a baby because of which I couldn’t really take a bold step to go to a new place.
So How long do I stay in Singapore? I have no clue. It could be a month a year or may be another 6 years. I would like to thank all my friends who have made my stay in Singapore comfortable and happy.
