Moving Out and Moving On - Am I Ready To GO?

Hey guys, I’m back from the dead. Internet is finally up too!
Did a quick and busy hiatus for a few days to focus on moving out and moving in to a new place here in Singapore. Yep, you read that right. A few years in, and this is now my 5th place to stay here. 5 times, wow. Who knows, maybe another 5 more in the next couple of months? #yolo

There’s a distinct kind of amusement in this kind of endeavor and having this for the 5th time makes it a lot less nerve-wracking. Hostel, hotel, condo, HDB, landed, staying out on the streets LOL, tried it all, and I must say – it’s still IS easy to do this kind of move here in Singapore than elsewhere in Asia. I know a lot may disagree, cos there certainly are some horror stories about these kinds of transitions, I got a few. From scary grandma moments, to weird neighbors, funny kids, I got at least 5 times more than what I can first remember right now. Got any?

Paying homage to all the unforgotten events that happened in this side of Singapore – who knows, I might have bumped into you around here, when I was living here? Here are some pictures of the Pioneer West - old and end, hello to you.

Whenever locals want to make their place look quaint or hipster, they try to throw in a bicycle somewhere. And it’s not only for display purposes, but they actually use it too! #almostamsterdam

The neighbourhood where I stayed is literally less than a minute from community parks, food centers, and their ultra efficient MRT system. Nice and quiet - like the rest of Singapore.

Arguably the BEST ECON BEEHOON ON THE PLANET. Their queues are as long as the iPhone opening days. Every. Single. Day. Opens 5:30 PM until around 10:00 AM daily. Must try: Bee hoon mixed Magi, seaweed chicken, egg, luncheon meat, and long bean. Add a little bit of chill.
