Do you miss Ireland?
A little bit. I’ve been here for 6 months and I’m getting used to it and the heat. I miss my friends back at home but at the same time I have a lot of friends here as well and I can hang out with the people I work with. And I enjoy the weather. It’s a lot nicer this time of the year here.
What’s good to do/see Ireland?
I’d say go visit the west of Ireland, like Limerick and Cork. Galway also has a really good nightlife scene, so go see traditional local Irish bands, there’s always good music playing. There’s this one band called Key West that’s very good.
What do you like most about Singapore?
I really like the gardens, especially Botanical Gardens, and I really like how close it is to everywhere else. It’s amazing how you can get to so many countries from here so easily.
Have you travelled around since you’ve been here?
Not really, but I’m going to Jakarta in the next two weeks, then I’m going to Sydney after that. I’ll visit my friend up in Hong Kong at some point, and then hopefully Japan is going to happen. I’ll be here for at least a year. I just want to travel and see this part of the world. It’s a long way from Ireland and it’s a good chance to explore. It’s the main thing really.
Something interesting about me:
I’m vegetarian, and have been so pretty much my whole life. I stopped for a little while when I was a kid because all of our school trips had McDonald’s. Now there’re a lot of vegetarian options around, and it’s a lot easier.
