I am a bit disappointed in myself for not taking as many photos as I usually do when I'm on vacation, but it's a bit hard to do in the city I grew up in. Over the years, Singapore has gone through an overhaul, and we have recognized that it has lost a lot of soul. I found myself drawn to what's left of my childhood, trying to capture and preserve a piece from the past. My cousin Rachel and I decided to play tourist in our hometown, and cafe hop around some of my favourite places in this city!
I felt like this trip was a much needed one for me. I needed to come home and allow myself to see that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Perhaps I was too blinded by temporary fulfillment to know that mine just needed a little watering. Seemed like it was greener for the longest time though. This fresh perspective thing seems to be making its rounds in my life lately. But.. one thing I am thankful for is quality time with the fam. It's nice to know that even though we're miles away from each other for the most part, we'll always, always have us. More on my trip back to the motherland next!
