BlessMyBag’s Big Hosting Move and back from Singapore
So, it didn’t fall apart as I predicted. The move to a new hosting server was a headache, but I intended to let it pass quickly so I railroaded through online forums, blogs, and YouTube tutorials on how to migrate your site to a new database from the ground up. This is my first time to do it without hands on help, just tips, and the move was quite Holy actually, practically nothing broken, nothing missing. In case of any technical hiccup from hereon, you girls can be my watch guards. The only minor thing I noticed that didn’t quite make it were the Categories for posts, I have to relink all the posts to proper Categories, spring cleaning you might say. I have lots of goodie posts for you in the next few days so stay tuned. It’s good to be back from Singapore.
What I like about Singapore is you can relax, you can be at peace, you don’t have to watch your back to stay alive, you can text, use your iPad and zone out safely on the MRT Train, the bus (you can even sleep if you like) and in spite of the cost left and right things work for you at that price, you can do, do, do…whatever it is you need to. If I slept on the curb it feels like there might not even be ants or mosquitoes.
I guess for some at a certain point it can all become bland and boring, someone I know of actually said “Singabore”, no offense at all to any Singaporeans, you guys are hardworking, way up there, and deserve to be praised. I guess some personalities don’t appreciate Singapore’s “SIMulated” utopia in the longrun, to each his own. As shallow as it may sound, at this stage in my life order, convenience, and being surrounded by upscale sights delightfully and properly laid out were exactly what I needed to get into gear.
It was wonderful and refreshing for me to be somewhere where things actually made sense, where citizens see their hard earned taxes put to good and lasting use, and where people make the most of what they have and don’t cheat each other out of anything. If we put our minds and hearts to it, we can be this, and we can do that. People have been asking me if I’d like to live or work in Singapore. Work is considerable, but live or relocate is another thing entirely. They don’t have typhoons or blackouts, local fresh produce, and they don’t have fresh sisig, U.P. Isaw, or the Azkals even, my goodness, why on earth would I want to move there? Hahaha. Thoughts, thoughts, thoughts…Prawn Toast at Thai Express in SG is almost yummy enough to convince me…but in the end maybe not.
