A lovely article over on the Singaporean high school Raffles’s website by a fellow writer,
Chuin-Wei Yap. Definitely a reminder as to why ‘getting lost’ matters so much in this increasingly globalized (read: shrinking?) world.
He implores of his fellow Singaporeans:
“While we’re able, live abroad. It helps to see things from the outside. It might also make Singapore a little less crowded. Feel a little alien, get a little lost. Just remember none of it matters without a sense of home.”
