First Week in a New Hemisphere

Singapore, Singapore

So It’s my first week in Singapore already and let me tell you what you're missing. The flight over here in business class was redic! I never want to fly coach again. Talk about service with a smile, they treat you like a queen! The food was excellent, and the sleeper seats really comfortable. The flight attendants are dressed in traditional dresses, elegantly poised with their hair in meticulous buns and freshly polished nails and faces. They look like beautiful dolls. They didn’t even think I was weird when I asked for a picture of me sleeping. I guess it happens all the time. So after 19 hours and 40 minutes in the air, and then a 12 hour time difference ahead, I had finally arrived! Photos of the journey attached. It was soooo hard leaving Jay at the airport. We were ok until the last minute, and then the flood gates opened. He supports me in my choice to take a chance, experience life, and advance my career and I love him for it. Didn’t make it any easier to leave though. We both know that it's only for a short while and we'll have the rest of our lives together, so I remind myself of that when it gets lonely. Since I've arrived, Carol (my co-worker) has been taking great care of me, showing me how to navigate my way to the office and find lunch. I think I'm going to have a great time working with her! My apartment is lovely. Centrally located and I can walk to work and catch the MRT (train) anywhere I need to go. I put some pictures of it so you can see where I'm spending my nights. Haven't seen anything this week yet other than the apartment for sleeping, the inside of a taxi, and 1 Raffles Quay, which is my office building. As the weeks go on I hope I have much more interesting stuff to post. Stay tuned...
