It’s been close to a year since I moved into Parc Esta in Singapore, and my life has gone through some changes. When I first moved in, I didn’t know anyone, but that quickly changed after I started meeting people who live in the condos and we became friends. And once I met my girlfriend, things became even more exciting. I changed jobs to one that has a higher salary and easier work. It’s like I hit the lottery in life, or I have some kind of great luck. The only thing that could make my life better, is if I had an endless supply of food, but I guess we can’t have everything.
I originally planned to be living in Singapore for just a couple of years, but I think it would be better if I stayed here permanently. When I think about the life that I used to have when I was living back in New York, it wasn’t really ideal. It was loud and crowded, and I couldn’t stand going to the job that I had. I hated riding on the public transportation, and it was just a place that I wanted to escape. It’s funny, because all of my friends who lived in other places all talked about how they wanted to live in New York, but I would always tell them that they wouldn’t really want that.
When I talk to my friends now and tell them about how great it is in Singapore, they all tell me they want to come visit me or even live there, and I tell them that they should. It’s just a fun place that I could see them deciding that they wanted to stay here permanently, just like I did. It would be nice to have a reunion with all of them in Singapore.
