Singapore is a fast-paced society and to be able to co-exist with this country and another, I've realised to take each return home as if I'm meeting a new country for the first time. No more complacency with prior knowledge and the confidence that I know the social norms. Treating my homeland as a new country is the strangest thing. Being curious, eager to learn and explore would be a benefit, else I would be holed up at home( in the common living space) doing internet stuff. Things to do now would include:
- Taking initiative to explore new areas (or old ones, you never know what has changed)
- Making more proactive plans and activities
- Being touristy includes being aware of public transport changes, the new trendy hangouts and must eats.
- Don't beat yourself up over not knowing things
