Goodbye blue hair - See you never again!

Two weeks ago I was on my way to the airport in Singapore, headed home. I didn’t need any time to adjust, I was just so happy to be back, to be able to wear pants and a blouse without having the feeling of being super sweaty within five minutes of leaving my apartment. The humidity is just so insane and Singapore is one of these countries that likes to cool everything down to a level where you need an extra jacket about everywhere you go. I tried to combine something simple as my hair already speaks for itself but to be honest, it’s so difficult to find something matching to this hair color because barely any blue in my wardrobe resembled my hair color and any other color simply doesn’t fit as well. If you are contemplating coloring your hair in any crazy color – blue included – I can wholeheartedly recommend you not to do it. It’s so bad for your hair to get it colored and then get rid of it again – or like in my case fail to get rid of it. The hairdresser told me there’s nothing else he could do for me – fortunately the blue only shines through occasionally. Anyway I am off to Maastricht now to take an exam and then plan my trip to Greece in two weeks.


Coming home - and so does my new pleated maxi skirt

Hi loves, I am just sitting at the airport in Dubai waiting for my connecting flight to Frankfurt to start boarding. You have no idea how excited I am to head back to Germany. I have lived abroad for longer periods before, three times in total (California, New York and Maastricht) but never have I felt an urge to go back to Germany but Asia is a completely different world, a world I am not sure I can live in for longer periods of time. Singapore is termed as 'Asia Light' from many and I do agree but still it's very Asian. After traveling to Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi, Phuket, Boracay, Cebu and almost all of Vietnam I think I am done with Asia for a while. It's been a blessing and an amazing experience to live in Singapore but it's also a crazy change. The biggest and also worst change for me was the food - although you can get any kind of food in Singapore, it comes at a price. When you compare prices at hawker centers (meals ranging from 5-10$) to restaurants (around 20-30$) this is a huge difference on a daily basis. Another thing that frustrated me was the bad English of many people living in Singapore. Although English is the official language spoken in Singapore still many cannot speak the language well which makes it hard to communicate. I am sure I will return to Asia but for now I am looking forward to Western influences and my summer in New York. In the next few days I will write my travel diaries from the Philippines, Phuket and Vietnam so if you have any questions just post them in the comment section :)
