Back for a while

4 08 2009

I haven’t been blogging for a long time.  Maybe because I’ve been busy with things (cleaning, laundry, cooking etc), or maybe because I just haven’t felt like it.

Anyway, I’m back in Singapore for 2 weeks, which is almost the entire duration of my summer break.

It feels almost surreal. There’s so little time to buy/eat the things I’ve wanted to buy/eat, and even less time to meet up with people. Then again, having said that, Singapore doesn’t feel that much different from Tokyo.  The heat is as bad.

On the other hand, I don’t have to worry about money, or saving electricity here. Nor chores/laundry/cooking.  It’s not that bad. Right now I’m enjoying the aircon without thinking about the utility bills, savouring my new purchases that were paid for by the parents.

In the end though, it’s painful to come back and painful to leave. I won’t be seeing most people for at least a year, and so much can happen, though a year is a short time.  It’s hard to leave the comfort and privacy of my tiny dorm room in Tokyo, and the steadfast routines I’ve built for myself.

Maybe things will get better next year. I promise to blog more when I can.
