“Coming Full Circle” has been a predominant theme in my life lately. I think it’s very important to go back to where you first began, mainly to see how much you’ve grown since them. It’s sort of like a benchmark to compare the You now vs. the You then.
Singapore is one of those benchmark cities for me. It was the first city I moved to from Manila 3 and a half years ago. It’s the first time I really felt personal growth. It’s even where I started this blog. (Scrolling back, I can see how much has changed.)
It’s nice to come full circle and see people from your past and reminisce. But apart from looking back, it was also a good opportunity to make new memories. Just because you’ve come full circle doesn’t mean you fall back into old ways.
It’s more of closing one chapter- with the peace, presence, and perspective you’ve acquired along the way. It’s coming back to a place you once knew, and seeing how you both (yes, you and the city) have evolved.
We’re doing good Singapore. Thanks for the new memories.

In the midst of it all, my roommates and I are packing up the house. I’ve been selling furniture, and trying to ship all our other things out. By next week, I will be out of this apartment, and a week after that, I’ll be out of Singapore. It’s an end of a phase…a cycle… an era.

I’m back in Singapore now.
The last few days felt like a mad dash to the finish line, only to arrive again at the start of another race. This morning I was trying to calm down and enjoy a moment of rest before I ran off to do errands and meet people again.
