Back in December we had our second (non-family) visitors-my college roommate Love and her mom. Love was my college roommate and remains a good friend. These day’s she’s a Peace Corps volunteer stationed in Mongolia. Her mom lives in Southern California. So they both flew to Singapore and we got to play host!
When I originally started the blog (just about 3 years ago, actually), I knew that very people I knew had ever been to Signapore and weren’t likely to come visit. We’re of an age where many of our friends are settling down and spawning-and just because we’re crazy enough to drag our kids halfway around the world doesn’t mean I think anyone else should (unless they want to). It’s not cheap, and the time zone shift sucks. So I figured the blog would be my way of sharing Singapore with the friends back home.
I’ll save the sappy “it’s become so much more than that” speech for my actual 3 years in Singapore misty-eyed love-fest.
What I will say is that it so special to me when I have had the rare opportunity to show a friend a physical place. To share a moment with them in person instead of via picture, video, blog post, etc.
