9 April 2013 -
I took a peep at the last time I had written in this part of my blog, and it was 2010.
It’s 2013 now and I figured I’m in need of an update.
Not much has changed. I’m still the same old Bing. A few years older since I started writing this blog. And a little less of that Energizer bunny I used to be, but still very much passionate about life and everything I do.
If you’re visiting this blog for the first time, I’m a proud Singaporean who has spent several years living the expat wife life while the husband moved about for work. It feels like a long time ago that I had quit my fancy banking job and sobbed goodbyes to my loved ones and trailed my hubs to New Zealand. It turned out to be a beautiful wild ride, for which I will be eternally grateful for. Several years later, we moved to South Africa and I arrived in Johannesburg practically kicking and screaming. I was skittish as a meerkat and spent several weeks living in fear. But this country touched us in the most special way and before long, I had fallen in love with the African land and its wonderful people. A huge volume of this blog documents our experiences in the very misunderstood, very lovely city of Johannesburg.
A new chapter of our lives is beginning soon. The time has come for us to go home to Singapore. I can’t wait to be with my loved ones again! Although a big part of me already misses Africa and I dread having to say good bye to friends. No matter where we are, I know our journey will always be special. Because that’s the way my family is. Full of love, and life and always stuffing ourselves with positive attitude. #not_easy
This blog has travelled a long journey with us. I started off with the intention to leave stories on our overseas life for the folks back home, but I had ended up with a precious memory vault. Welcome to this humble space where the best of my experiences, thoughts and dreams are.
Thanks for reading!
