Sorry that it took so long for me to post this long overdue update.
I have actually been back in Canada for just over a week now and although my trip had been more than pleasant, I can say that there is really no place like home.
Here is quick recap of my trip:
The total time that I have spent in Singapore was just over two weeks.
I spent the majority of my time at my grandparent’s house in Johor. We’ve tried literally all the different types of food there was, the expensive and fast food. The most memorable part of the trip would definitely have to be the food we ate there. Here are some of the pictures that I took:
The Family Gatherings
Seeing that I have my grandparents, uncles, aunts and 30 of my first cousins all live there, the family values I’ve experienced was one that I have never seen before.
There are family gatherings every week where everyone just got together and have a nice dinner. However, with such a big family, there are also a lot of different personality types there. Like every other big family, drama and tense situations do occur in ours as well.
During our stay there, it just happened to be my grandfather’s birthday. We had a party for him and everyone from the family came to visit him. After my entire stay, I was exhausted from all the socializing with the family. It feels nice to actually have some peace and quiet again. J
My trip to Singapore and Malaysia was a real life changing experience for me. It made me realized the importance of achieving financial freedom and living life to the fullest.
Back in Singapore, the culture is much different than the one here in a westernized society. Everyone enjoyed life to the fullest and seemed much more carefree as opposed to chasing the paycheque like what most people are doing here in Canada.
On our plane flight, we had a few hours in Tokyo where we did some shopping in the airport. Tokyo seems like a nice city and I really enjoyed the sushi there. I would like my next international travel to be in Japan.
That’s it for now. Where would you like to go on your next international trip? I would love to hear from you in the comments below!
