where am i?

it's nice to get out of the comfort zone. it's not a cozy experience, of course. but every time you do something unfamiliar, something that you have never felt like doing before due to many reasons, like doubts and fear of failure, you feel that you have grown a little. that's how i sense bits and pieces of my experience in singapore have been like. anyhow, i have been here for about five and a half months, and i am still in the process of figuring things out. it's nice to get perplexed and then finally receiving the clarity at the end. there's a lot to learn in this journey both back home and into the future.
my desire for this new year is to have the opportunity to try out alternative ways to handle any situations, as opposed to the familiar ways i have been used to. another thing. i am quite a passive character at times and i want to take more initiative this year in certain aspects of my existence. well, many things are easier said than done!

nevertheless, we continue on the path.
