Well, what do you say? Long time no see? But somehow my need to write blog posts have been low for months. However, now my desire have grown and I hope that it will last longer this time.
I will first begin to explain the reason to why I write in English. It is not because I recently moved to Singapore (say what?!) but because of my friends, Gaia and Chloé in Germany also want to read my posts. Besides, it is also a good practice for me since I don't write so much in English and because of that, I can't promise you that it will be flawless, at least in the beginning. ;)
Now, back to the Singapore part. I would like to say, what happened there? For five months ago I moved to Germany and now I am living on the other side of the world. Pretty overwhelming. And strange. But I hope that I will like it.
How I got here is because of my host family. They told me in the end of November that the chance that they were going to move was big since the mom got a new job offer here in Singapore. At first, it was not 100% sure that it would happen and I was defiantly not 100% sure if I wanted to go with them. Not because of the family, because my family here are lovely, but It was not what I had in mind at all. You know, my mind was strictly disposed towards living in Frankfurt/Oberusel and learning Greman. And additionally, I really enjoyed living in Germany. I had met wonderful people, the german culture is nice, Frankfurt and Oberusel are two lovely cities and if someone wanted to come and visit or if I wanted to go home it was just 2 hours away. So it was a difficult decision. Obviously, you already know what I decided. I did not want to go back to Sweden, I did want to stay in Germany but without my host family? Should I change family then? Nah, I was not sure about that since my host family is the very best. And the opportunity to move to Singapore just like that is not something you will get every day. So finally, I made my decision and we packed our bags and moved to the future (both in time and general progress).
So far I have just lived here for 3 days, I am brand new Singapore citizen. No, that is wrong of me to call myself a citizen but I hope I will learn so much about Singapore that someone would think that I am a citizen of Singapore. Yesterday I went down to the Marina Bays and strolled around there for hours. There is so much to see and do in this city, it almost drives you crazy! Therefore it is a relief to know that I have a long time to explore everything.
Although that I am going to miss some people in Frankfurt and at home, am sure that I will enjoy it here just as much as in Germany. I will also keep this blog updated, my goal is at least one post every week that contains a lot of details and stories from my life.
I wish you all a good day (or evening) and don't forget to smile. (Chliché, but it is always a good idea)
Down by the bays.
I ate dinner at Gluttons Bay, super cheap and super delicious. It is a noodle wok with a little of everything, I actually did not know what I ordered, I just picked something because it was too many choices haha. It looks spicy but it was not that spicy actually.
This is from a street in Bukit Timah where we are living right now and where the family will find an apartment too. I really find it pretty with all the flowers on the street.
