Basically I just read a book (The Stange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender), watched a movie (Winter’s Tale), updated Rhino’s apps, ate pancit canton and washed my comforter and bed sheet the whole day.
I can’t say it’s not productive but it’s the kind of thing I don’t usually do since my arrival in SG. I just find it so hard to do all the things that usually take up most of my time in PH, like reading a book and watching movies.
I really enjoyed reading after 2 months of shutting myself out from bookstores and printed text. I realized it is something I will always come back to. It’s like a piece of myself is already attached to it.
Or so I thought.
Your mattress looked so comfy, I couldn’t resist lying down there with you.
You were such a sweetheart when you put your arms around me and buried your face in my chest.
I was so touched and I can’t help myself from saying, “I like you.”
It was already too late when I realized I’ve spoken in English and you heard me clearly because I whispered the words in your ear.
But you made everything alright when you said, “I like you” back.
like for good in SG? well take this as an opportunity for a new lease in life. new place, new friends, new adventure. i wish you well, sis :)
Nope. For work and I realized how serious people are here about their jobs. Makes me wanna work harder than before. I am taking my time in adjusting and my environment (thankfully) is cooperating and supportive. Thank you and I hope to see you when I go home. :)
Sometimes I forget that I’m only 20 years old.
Because I feel like I’ve lived for a very long time and yet I know I still have so much to learn.
They say I’m very brave to leave everything behind and start a new life here in Singapore.
But you just know when you’re about to enter a new phase of your life. You have to take that step forward. It’s inevitable.
I feel like it’s been a long awaited dream.
Everything I’ve told you, is real.
Everything I’ve shown you is real.
One day we will meet. I want it to happen.
Either I go to you or you to me.
