Separation Anxiety is Parang Pag-ibig

Separation anxiety from our travels is like the love from our past (the ex-boyfriend or the ex-girlfriend, or the ex-crush, or the ex-almost) that we can hardly forget.

It was my third time to visit Singapore. While the city country is too organized for other seasoned travelers, I find a home in Singapore for a photowalk.
