recently discovered the joy of travelling alone. although there are times where i do wish i could share my joy or magnificent views with some people in my life, or just to chat with them.

i do like the freedom that i get when i travel alone: go anywhere, do whatever i want and all.

im still a little more guarded since i am a female and im perhaps still not that street savvy as others in countries less safe than singapore. trying to get my game face (i dont know where i am headed but i fake it till i make it!) on and see the world still. glad to see that there are others who likes to do the same.

just wondering how do u guys cope in a country where their main language is not english and how do u get around/communicate?
1. I learn a few phrases here and there b4 flying over. Usually I try to rem it in the plane. lolz.

2. Take pic of food/ loo etc in case is totally cant communicate

3. Download a English/ xxx translation app. Then i show it to the people

4. If you garang like me, i will try to learn a few words everyday and try to use it everyday till i rem. If dont know how to pronoun, ask a local over there to help you out. ie while waiting for train, "catch" a local to teach you.. haha

PS: I have STM, i will almost surely forget whatever i have learn when i'm back in SG
