There were a few things that changed after moving to Singapore: how I viewed and valued my work, how efficiency ruled my world, and moving at a faster pace is a given. What I didn’t anticipate is how I started to treat vacations – something I’m still conflicted if it’s because Singapore happened to me or because I’m simply getting older. When I was younger, vacations needed to be memorable and sleepless like a sprint to cross off as many items from a list as you can–after all, I’m paying for something expensive that I’m likely not going to see again so might as well do EVERYTHING. Ate this? Check. Seen that? Check.
Which is good, because now in my 30s and with meager energy, I’m flying to places just to eat. Or so I thought.
Folks, welcome to my trip to Vietnam.

If you follow me on twitter you’d notice that these photos were originally posted there. I’m feeling lazy to come up with new photos, heh. That, and the fact that I only have my phone at the moment, so my usual backup-choose-edit-upload-post habit on my laptop isn’t as easy to do with about 1000 pictures running.
I’m still here, and am really not very excited to come back to my reality at the moment, but I’m sure it will pass.
