Exploring takes my mind off work and is a therapeutic way for me to forget my stresses. With the intense week of work that I was experiencing a few weeks back (i.e. bursting into tears when Microsoft Word crashed and I lost all my unsaved work), it called for an exploration. So on the day that I was on leave, I pulled WL along to explore Singapore’s last surviving kampong village with me to Kampong Buangkok!

We’ve only explored a section & somewhat more modernised version of the kampong, along the street Kampong Lorong Buangkok.

I’ve learned to treasure my weekends much much more now that my weekdays are occupied with a full-time desk job.

If you’re keen to check out Singapore’s last surviving kampong, you can learn more about them here or here.

An explorer at heart, the world is Isabel's playground. She enjoys seizing every moment exploring every hideout and doing the unimaginable, like bungee jumping in Phuket and couchsurfing in Europe. If she had wings, she’d definitely be soaring right now. Also a fitness trainer, if she’s not at the gym, you can find her doing yoga or rock climbing!
