The art of relaxing

If there is one important lesson that I can learn from the Tunisians, it is the art of relaxing. I have lived in Singapore my whole life. From the moment I was born, to the moment I started school and to my present time right now, I have only known what it is to be... Continue Reading →

Tunisian standard of living

Its been more than 2 weeks since I first arrived in Tunisia. Since then, I have gotten a sense on the standard of living in this country compared to my home country Singapore. Overall, I am quite amazed at how cheaply one can live in Tunisia.  But before making comparisons, a little intro on their... Continue Reading →

Arabic, French, English + 1.

I have been making good friends with my fellow aisecers in Tunisia. All of them that I have met so far are college students like me and from what I gathered, they are fluent in both Arabic and French. Not only that, some of them attend schools that are taught in english, and therefore fluent... Continue Reading →

Tunisian Traffic

Tunisian traffic is total anarchy. There is almost no law while on the roads. You see cars whizzing past without a care in the world. Pedestrians and drivers mingle hazardously together and you cannot tell the driver's intentions while on the road. When I first arrive in Tunisia, the local AIESECers received us at the...

Tunisia: Culture Shocks

It's been almost a week in Tunisia, and living and chilling with the local people has taught me so much. I have experienced several instances of culture shock while I'm here. The social norms and etiquettes are very different back at home. For instance, when I arrived at the airport and when the fellow local... Continue Reading →

Tunisia: Salsa Dancing

The place was called Latina, on the outskirts of town. One of the EP who have stayed here for over 2 months for an internship invited us for dinner at Latina, which happens to have a dancefloor for Salsa dancing. It was the first time I actually tried salsa dancing and I learnt a few... Continue Reading →

Tunisia: Of Souks and Shisha

Souks or markets in Tunisia is one of the most interesting places to go to. While I have been to the Spice Market and The Grand Bazaar in Istanbul, Tunisia's Souk is a class  on its own. The place is massive, and there are other Souks scattered around Tunisia. Basically they are like markets, selling... Continue Reading →

The AIESEC house

The AIESEC house is our accommodation in Tunis. Upon arrival at the airport, our fellow AIESECers brought us to their cars, so that they can bring us to the AIESEC house. The AIESEC house is like an apartment rented out (or bought, im not sure) for fellow AIESECers to stay. Its located about 15 minutes... Continue Reading →

Arrival: Tunisia

It's been almost 48 hours since I got on that plane bound to Tunisia. Everything has been a blur since then. Everything is moving so fast right now. Just yesterday I remembered being in the sky in the plane in a holding pattern because of a congestion at Dubai International. The journey to Dubai took... Continue Reading →

Tunisia Tourism Commercial

I was surfing around Youtube and I came across the Tunisian Tourism Commercial and I think it's pretty amazing. The ad showing Tunisians from all over the country, united in welcoming visitors to their country really hits the sweet spot for me. After what they have gone through during the period of the uprising, and... Continue Reading →

Visa application: Approved

Today marks another milestone in my Visa application: It has been approved! It took about a month to sort out the correct documents needed, and another week or so for the approval process before finally getting the all important call to head down the office to have your passport stamped with the Tunisian Visa. I... Continue Reading →


I have been wanting to write about this for a while. Only now I have the time to sit down and write about it. It is official. I am going to Tunisia. I am going under AIESEC, the world's largest student-run international organisation, aimed at providing youths like me a platform in leadership development. I... Continue Reading →
