In any kind of job, one is given a certain amount of annual leave each year (for me it’s 5 weeks). Over the course of 3 months at work I have somewhat been mentally drained from it all and coming to a point where everyday just seems to be a blur. I’m not sure why that is so, perhaps it’s the solo management I have to do when developing applications for clients, the constant “feature creep” that clients do, or maybe that I don’t have a fellow co-worker to keep me company (about 70% of the time I’m in the office alone).
Anyway Roobar pointed out to me that it’s close to 6 months since we went away for our Japan holiday and it’s probably perhaps time that I go on another one. Although to me 6 months doesn’t seem to be that long but you know how time flies when working. Since my income is a reasonable amount, and that I have slowed down on my online purchases, I figured that I should head overseas once again. But the million dollar question is where? There are many places that I want to visit and experience, but for the next adventure I’m thinking of either Hong Kong or Singapore (currently leaning towards Singapore). I would prefer to go to Venice, but that kind of trip is on a much grander scale as I would like to visit other European countries at the same time.
I suppose one way to see this is a short and simple holiday. Some would probably suggest Japan, but in all seriousness I’m bored of Japan and that I’m more than likely to spend a god awful amount of money again. So yes, with this short and simple holiday I prefer to not spend so much. So with a choice of Hong Kong or Singapore, I know that I can get relatives and some friends to show me around Hong Kong, but I know nothing of Singapore. Windbell once said to me that I should only visit Singapore for nice cheap food. Obviously there should be more to Singapore than this so for those reading this, are there other things to do in Singapore? Is it even worth going there for a holiday? I’d like to hear the opinions for Singapore residents and those from other countries who have visited Singapore. Also this will probably be my first solo trip overseas.
Of course all this is a thought in progress, so nothing is concrete at the moment.
