SINGAPURA

i miss singapore. the four years jet and i spent there was one of the happiest times in our lives. it was there that we met lovely people who became close friends. it also gave us the security and comfort that i have not experienced anywhere else.

yes, i must admit that there are people there who have body odor that will make your nose bleed but so what. i love singapore – i love its people, i love its food , i love everything about it. i’d love to move back there again someday.

thank you singapore. i’ll see you again, i’m sure.

JAKARTA

jakarta, indonesia reminds me so much of manila. it almost has the same feel. it has the same sad sorry old houses on one side of the street and beautiful new buildings on the other. i could swear that the roads too have the same number of potholes. replace the many mosques with churches and you can't tell the difference. the people look the same – brown skinned, always smiling faces. we speak differently but we share many common words. some have different meanings or are pronounced differently but most of the common words mean the same. it's as if the indonesians and filipinos have been separated at birth and allowed to grow individually that eventually they ended up looking the same and yet somehow different.
