A short update from my new city – Singapore

Its been quite some time now I have blogged, though it was subconsciously there in my mind. Lots have taken place since the last few months. Changes are not limited to my location only, but an emotional and lifestyle upheaval has taken place too. Relocating from Seoul was decided. Yes, moving to a new place, living in new city, working in a new place, living in a new home do sound interesting, yet familiarising with the unfamiliar is the most daunting and exhausting task.

Singapore – my new destination, is a very simple & easy place to live in, yet I have not found my place yet. Unlike Seoul where I only consumed visual content due to lack of understanding the language, here in Singapore I don’t face that challenge, however I still lag behind to catch up with the pace of the city. Be it the SG50 campaign running across the city or the semi-tropical undefined style of fashion, I am finding it easy yet baffling to grasp entirely. Talking of fashion, unlike the Korean culture where “whats-in” is the key to dressing throughout the year, here in Singapore it is more about comfort. The best time to experience the dressing scene in Singapore is during the early rush hours in the morning. Appropriate make-up, nude shade kitten heels, linen trouser and long scarfs are the usual everyday woman wears. My workplace is simply cute with lot of happy and chirpy Singaporean faces and a very inspiring boss. Everyday here is a challenge, yet a new learning. I am stumbling every moment and standing the next.
