Kana, from Japan, decided to spend a week in Delsy's homestay in Singapore. During her vacation, Kana was able to experience the people and culture of Singapore through a local's eyes.
I like to go on a trips by myself, but I always stay in hotels. However, this time I tried to challenge myself by trying something new. I decided to stay in a homestay, which is something I had been interested in before. In the homestay, I was never lonely because there are host families.
Every morning, I ran around a park or river nearby. One day I found a crocodile swimming there! Sometimes, a monkey would appear in the garden of the host family's house. I liked when my colleagues showed me photos of iguanas. There are a lot of plants growing around the house. It was a very wonderful thing. Singapore is an attractive country where large cities and nature coexist.
Because there are a lot of mosquitoes, you should bring a mosquito repellent spray. Because the sun is strong, a parasol is also necessary. You will be asked for your passport when you buy alcohol.
I was happy because she had dogs and cats. In Japan, I do not own a pet. She made me her original dish that has a very special taste that I would not find in Japan. I loved that we can eat together, and I enjoyed being able to ask questions about things like traffic access and nice restaurants in neighborhood. Homestay allowed me to make new friends overseas.
