A Song That Reminds You of Somewhere.
The Sweet Escape by Gwen Stefani will always remind me of Singapore! Many moons ago, I had decided to quit my temping job and take a big leap and try working in Singapore for a year. It was the first time I had left home.
During the weekends, I would go to Sentosa island and just lie on the beach! I know it’s a completely man made beach and when you look out to sea, all you can see are lots of shipping tankers. It’s not completely idyllic but to me, being from the UK, it was such a novelty having a tropical sandy beach 20 minutes away from my place. I would go there with my headphones and a notebook and just write all day! Whilst I lay down under palm trees, I would put on ‘the sweet escape’ and thank my lucky stars that I took a chance and tried something that seemed really scary!
I have such good memories of Singapore! It gave me the room to find my own feet and experience so many things! And so ‘The Sweet Escape’ is one heck of a memory kicker for me.
