For almost 3 months I lived in the Lion City. The country is pretty vibrant and so many characteristics that is way different from my country. I went there in search for a job but it didn’t work out so well. All the disappointments aside, it was a humbling experience. Since I was unemployed and living in costly country, I had no right to spend money that I didn’t even have. I got to experience limiting myself to the things I didn’t notice before like transportation fares, expensive cigarettes and the pricey alcoholic beverages. I could get a bottle of beer here for less than a dollar, and cheapest beer I bought there was at 5.30 SGD. Anyway, I enjoyed the inexpensive Chinese meals such as chicken rice and fish ball soup.I had one hell of a laugh with my friend in train rides as we would converse in our vernacular and no one could understand. And damn, hurrying to go home in the middle of the night because train station closes before 12 mid night (taxi fares doesn’t come cheap). These are some of the few moments I experienced living there. All in all, a good one.
