“You think that holding someone hard will bring them closer. You think that you can hold them so hard that you’ll still feel them, embossed on you, when you pull away.
Every time Eleanor pulled away from Park, she felt the gasping loss of him.”

I’m back. I’m back in Manila — back to my comfort zone, my family, my friends, and my own bed. I’m back after a month of living in Singapore. Things got pretty complicated so I had to pack my things, board a plane, and leave Singapore. I might be back soon – in two weeks, in a month or two… I don’t know. But one thing’s for sure, I will be back. There are few people waiting for me.
This whole living in Singapore thing is one hell of an adventure. I love the fact that I could get lost anytime because I haven’t memorised the city yet like the back of my hand. The freedom is refreshing. The people I met are amazing and I miss them already. Especially my cousin, Ate AC, who looked after me while I was there. She’s the kindest and most thoughtful person I know. I love her and I really miss her.
I wish I could go on about my whole adventure but there’s really nothing to say except that I will never forget it. Everything was a learning experience and I have learned a lot about myself, about other people and overseas workers, and the real value of time and money.
Oh look who has been crying! Ate AC and I were never close when we were kids. We had our casual hi’s, hello’s and smiles but we never talked. Well, that all changed when I came to Singapore. She was my friend, my cousin, and my mom at the same time. It was really hard to leave her.
I can’t wait to come back and spend some more quality time with my “family.”
To my family, I’ll be back soon then we could finally visit USS and eat some ice cream at Ikea! I love you all.
reading articles about mobile design and stuff. Well you know… getting ready for my internship. I’ll start tomorrow. Finally! After eight months of funemployment!
listening to Lorde’s Pure Heroine. This record will ever get old.
thinking about what to cook for breakfast tomorrow. Apparently they don’t eat breakfast here so I decided that I will cook for them so we can all be full before we go to work.
wishing that everything will be a-okay. That’s all I’m wishing right now.
hoping for a good day tomorrow. It’s my first day, yeah, and I am really excited about it.. and nervous. I hope I don’t screw up.
