Taking a Breather in Singapore
After the suffocating sandstorms in Beijing recently, it's been good to escape the organised chaos and take a trip to Singapore.
I've been to Singapore twice before, and coming from Beijing, it never ceases to amaze me just how clean, controlled and so much more practical so many things are in comparison to the city I have come to call "home".
After just 5 days, my skin is visably clearer, I feel healthier, and consequently happier.
Of course being able to swim in the outdoor pools everyday helps... and as a result of the humidity, you sweat more and drink more water...
But it becomes very clear that living in a country which makes you act and feel this way is vastly preferable to wiping the thick dust from your face after a short walk in Beijing, and not daring to jog on the streets for fear of causing even more harm to your health..
