Lonely and Homesick in Singapore

Labels: ,
Posted on Tuesday, November 11, 2008

Philippine passportThis past two weeks have been really hard for me. For the first time in my five months of stay here in Singapore, I am feeling homesick and very lonely. It just feels lonely that I'm far from my family and friends.

The gloomy weather somehow made me feel this way. I can't explain it. I feel so down. I just don't like my current situation now. Even I bury myself with work, blogging and watching my favorite US TV shows, it cannot change the fact that I'm alone in Singapore.

Anyway on Thursday, I'm going to the Philippine Embassy to renew my passport. I want to make sure that I won't have any problems with vacation this January. I just hope my big pimple on my right cheek would disappear. I don't want a big pimple on my passport.

Hello Philippines from Makoy!

i know it can be hard (even frustrating) how it hits you one day that you are alone in a place where the closest people you know are the ones you live with. And no matter how the people you love assure you of their "presence" in this trying time, nothing still compares to a warm hug, a soft peck on the cheeks, or even a high five. I admire the strength you've earned yourself in going through this, regardless of whatever reason why you chose to stay there. As someone who share the same kind of loneliness that you feel right now, I hope and pray that you find peace in yourself and joy in your heart. It may be tough, but I'm so sure that those who wait for your return miss you terribly as well.

Take care Makoy.

Hey Mark,

Hmm if there is anything from over here that you would want I can help out and maybe send it over there :) hehehe... I do know how it feels like to be home sick and it isnt a feeling that would ever go away. Hugs dear :)

Hi Mark, same situation like you, almost mag 2 years na din ako sa Singapore, pero minsan, dumadating pa din sa akin yong lungkot ng malayo sa family. Can I have a suggestion, puede ba na buo na lang tayo ng Community of Filipino Blogger in Singapore, kahit tayo muna magsimula. This way same minds meets. Exchange and share ideas. What do you think?
