I came across the Global Young Leaders Travel and Learning Camp (GYLTLC) from the Youthop website and impulsively decided to apply for the program because I have nothing to do that day and decided to direct my energy trying out essay applications (if only I have the same amount of energy when making reports) haha!
I sent my application and forgot about it for a few weeks until I received an e-mail which says I got in!
And that dear readers, is the story on how I got here!
I took a connecting flight from Cebu to Manila and unexpectedly met my dear high school classmate who’s going to Manila for a competition.
I finally managed to get through immigration and board the plane to Singapore. The entire flight totaled to approximately seven hours including the layover. While I was on the plane, I felt excited at the same time fearful because this time, I am going to be alone (that means less #ootds).
To keep myself out of boredom, I listed few challenges that I want to do when I get there (after Leadership sessions).
1. Ride a train from Airport to Hotel bringing your luggage (or vice versa).
2. Go to Orchard Road
3. Try their signature dish at Sunday Folks
4. Clarke Quay + Have Fun
5. Explore IMM
6. Find a Church
7. Singapore Flyer at Night
8. Dine Out (alone!)
9. Get lost
10. Blend in! (Less touristy feels)
Sadly, I got to do just 8/10 because of time constraints.
Here’s some 8/10 snaps minus the train-luggage photo.
And yes! People thought that I am a local. Was it because I’m wearing an eyeliner that defined my eyes (Chinese way!)? Haha, I just had fun pretending to be one.
Till next #KimmyTakes diaries.
