Yesterday was the 5th anniversary of us being guests in this country. Our arrival onto The Little Red Dot was on Friday February 9 2007 and we can both say we have enjoyed every minute of our stay and learned so much more in the 5 years we have been here than at any other time in our lives.
Everyone has been incredibly kind to us. We have met so many people from all walks of life, all nationalities, all religions, rich or poor, all areas of Singapore, expats or locals, people have treated us as "one of them". Rarely did we feel we were 'an outsider' ....... there was much to experience and learn while living here and we did not waste any time in experiencing as much as we could.
I think the one thing I will take from here is that we can all be living together in harmony, regardless of race, religion or culture ... but it takes everyone to work together to achieve this. We cannot walk around with our head in the sand and ignore that there are people the same as us, walking beside us.
one of my friends had this on Facebook this morning:
