Oh Singapore. This is the country which 'internationalized' me. It's where I learned to speak English and it's the place which has pushed me out of my comfort zone many, many times. I remember when my dad told me that we were going to move, and how upset I was because I didn't want to leave Finland, I didn't want to leave my friends and most of all I had no idea how to speak English. But now I couldn't be more grateful for the fact that I spent around 6 years of my life in the most amazing city ever. After living in Singapore, there is no way I could move back to Finland. And that is exactly what happened, after a year long stay at Kirkkonummi, my family and I got out as fast as we could. Who knows maybe its the inner traveler in me which just doesn't want to stay in one place for long. I've even been nicknamed the 'Globetrotter' by one of my instructors, but that is just how the cookie crumbles, and I'm forever grateful for all the opportunities I've had.
I left my heart in Singapore, and for many years I visited as often as I could. I believe '09 I was there twice. And, those vacations were the best, full of fun times and such. But the last time I was there, things didn't go as planned and I left in a funk, fell out with my bestfriend, huge fights and arguments. And for what? The immaturity took 'control' of all of us, and resulted in fall outs. I won't deny it, that trip left a dent in my memory of the place and I haven't been back since. However, no matter what, Singapore will always have a special place in my heart and it will forever remain one of the most amazing, spectacular places on earth. Just wish things would have gone down a different road.

So that's that. Just taking a nostalgic trip down memory lane, and hoping that I'll return to this amazing country some day in the future. Who knows where I'll be 5 years down the line, but I for sure as hell can guarantee you it won't be in Holland. haha.
Have a great Thursday my lovelies.
