Hi there,

I am the Local and this is my story. Well, not the full story – an excerpt if you must label it. Welcome to my blog, a personal project curating the sights and sounds of Singapore with some personal musings thrown in for good measure.

I moved back to Singapore from Australia in 2015. At the same time, I transitioned into full time work in healthcare. Right from the get go, I’ve grappled with “identity” and “home”. I know, first world problems. Anyhow, after 2+ years, I’ve finally mustered the energy to reacquaint myself with my little red dot.

If you’re a fan of places with soul, depth, history and contradictions, you’re in the right place. I believe there is more to Singapore than the bright lights and gloss. If you’re curious to find out if there’s anything more to Singapore than a sterile sojourn, read on, follow or subscribe. And if you have any feedback, ideas, comments or would just like to say hi, get in touch! I would love to hear from you!

Oh yes, I’m also on Instagram
