TUMBLR ASK: If you can choose, will you continue staying in the us or stay in singapore?
Hi anon, this question has been sitting in my inbox for a long time and I still haven’t figured a straightforward answer for you.
I love Singapore and all its idiosyncrasies, and it’s where my family is, so sometimes I think I could never leave it permanently. Especially cos I don’t wanna leave my mom.
But at the same time, I really want to work in the states for some time, cos sometimes the limited nature of the fields I wish to pursue in Singapore really frustrates me to no end, and I wish to grow and stretch as much as I can in my professional life. So, you know, maybe.
Sometimes the notion of pursuing your own dreams is antithetical to honouring the commitment to your anchors in life, and it’s always a tightrope I must walk.
