I can’t believe in just less than 2 weeks, our lives would change again.
We’re heading back to a life that we’ve known a good part of our lives, a life that I’ve been so looking forward to return but yet I can’t quite describe how I’m feeling as I write this post.
I wonder where this chapter in our journey will lead us. I wonder what I am to do with my life back home. But most days, I honestly just wonder where I will go from here.
Friends asked me at our farewell party, what are some of the things I’m looking forward to in Singapore? I say we’re definitely looking forward to spending time with our beloved fur-kid, Sparky; to meeting up with our family and friends; for the Man – saner working hours and for me, to be gainfully employed soon. But beyond these, I’m also looking forward to things that I’ve taken for granted back on our tiny island. For instance, safety – I’ve heard too many cases of pickpockets in trams and unfortunately for us, the Man fell victim to this petty crime recently in Paris. To stores opening on Sundays – don’t think I can deal with wondering what to do on Sunday if we’re staying put in Geneva or rushing to the grocery store on Saturday just to stock up on food. And knowing where to seek medical attention when needed – now that I’m super duper sick, I want to be able to walk into a doctor and ask him to give me antibiotics for a quicker recovery.
They also asked what I will miss about Geneva? I paused for a while trying to think of what are some of the things I would miss about this place. The list ain’t too long but given that we’ve only been here for 10 months, I think it’ll suffice. I say I would miss the four seasons. Having four seasons make dressing up a little more fun. Also, I’ll definitely miss the traveling. Geneva is really the perfect springboard to travel and see other parts of Europe. I’m grateful for the many weekend trips that we’ve taken. Lastly, I will also miss the friends and the wonderful people that we’ve met during our stay here. They definitely make life in Geneva a little more colourful.
So, what’s going to happen next? Honestly, I have no clue. But stick around, won’t you to watch the story unfold?
