On Her Way to Singapore

A friend of mine is leaving from here (Shanghai) today to go to Singapore, my other home, where she will be staying for several months. Her departure got me to thinking of what all I miss back home. Here's the things that came to mind:

• Friends (of course)

• The tropical climate

• The casual atmosphere

• Singlish being the (unofficial) national languge

• Curry

• Long distance cycling on a top-notch bike

• Running on the track, or on quiet roads, rather than in the crowded spaces I do my running here

Overall, I really love being in Shanghai, but I can't help missing these things while I am away from Singapore. I guess the thing is, I'd like Shanghai even more if I didn't have to be away from Singapore while I was here!
