3 Months | #SingaporeSignatures

Image
I am sitting down after a really busy firework show of my neurons with the load of work popping into my portion of realm from everywhere.


Today makes exactly 3 months since I came to Singapore. What's interesting is that you would have had a different emotion there if I had placed it as 'Today makes exactly 3 months since I left Mauritius.'
Going somewhere always has a more positive connotation than leaving a place. People are comfortable with arrivals, more than departures. Cultures tend to celebrate births, but not deaths- unless if those deaths are of the evil emblems. No, don't associate my date-memorizing skills with my gender. It has nothing to do with that. It's just an easily memorizable date given the 29th is Heshna's birth date. It's 00:47 right now and I just alighted from the bus from campus to where I stay.

Disney’s TV Show Hannah Montana depicts the female protagonist’s choice of leading an ordinary life despite being a celebrity. The show fluidly walks us through the distinct lifestyles of a celebrity and that of an ordinary person in terms of their set of values, ways of life, activities and attitudes. Whether celebrities and ordinary people are truly different would require a close diagnostic.
The first thing that comes to mind when discussing celebrity and common man’s lifestyles is luxury. From the sports industry to the entertainment industry, from politicians to business tycoons, the mantra “if you’ve got it, flaunt it” seems to be painted all over the walls that frame celebrity life.Because of the power and extraordinary amount of wealth they have, celebrities live a life that the normal man can only dream of. For instance, with real-estate assets worth more than just a few million dollars across the world, celebrities have better vacation options than an ordinary man. Be it Krab…
