i’ve always been curious about Westerners’ impressions of Asians, and the stereotypes they hold specifically about Singaporeans.
so i’ve been asking those that i crossed path with and the responses i get are: “Singaporeans are rich chinese”, “speak ‘Asian’ language e.g. Korean, Jap, etc.”, “Asians are susceptible to gambling” (like whut!?)
needless to say, i was truly fascinated and amused at the same time by how little people know about Singapore in general. oh well
also featured are some of the day trips i took during the weekends. one to the bazaar, which was disappointing much. the auntie in me definitely expected to find cheaper bargains – although i wouldnt argue that some of the produce were priced significantly lower than at the supermarkets. oh and the array of nuts they have drives me crazy. i’ve been consuming nuts at quite a copious amount daily (because i cant find a healthier snack to snack on), but i literally go nuts over nuts.
havent been exercising as much as i’d like to. tbh, the only form of exercising that i’ve done so far in this 1 month is just cycling.
8 km back and forth if i have lecture, otherwise 6.4km if i have tutorials at the other campus each week. thing is, how do people find the willpower to ride the bicycle with their sports bag and hit the gym in this cold weather!?
