Now I have recently posted several posts on Singapore, although the photographs were actually taken about a year ago. But it seems like Singapore has become a closed chapter for me. You see, I just had my status of Singapore Permanent Resident cancelled due to several reasons. All male citizens and PRs of Singapore have to serve 2 years of National Service (Army) from the age of 18. Since I happen to be studying here, and because I don't see the need for wasting 2 precious years, which I could spend for studying - for college/university, I decided, considering also my parents' opinions, to go ahead and cancel my PR. NS in Singapore can be really treacherous and tough, and although it might take a big toll on you, it sure does build up your body and character. I'm saying this from hearing my senior friends' experiences serving the army. However, now that I've opted out of it and cancelled my PR, I'm doubtful if I can visit Singapore again - the country I grew up in. I'm pretty dejected about it, but well, I'm sure that if I become too overwhelmed I can always choose to return to Singapore after serving my 2 years. For now, I'm trying to move on with life, and see where it'll take me. Singapore was just a chapter in my life, and I'll be looking forward to the many chapters yet to have reached.
