– @adalinelau, Adaline Lau, Singaporean living in Hong Kong
Durian, laksa, carrot cake, otah, friends, relatives and more!
What I love most— the diversity of food (and oh so affordable!!) What I miss most— family, friends, the familiar sights, very affordable and efficient public transport!
Love the support network and variety of food 🙌❤️
Definitely the food and how things open late at night!
Missing family, loved ones, hawker food, cuStepping on board an SQ plane with the warm greet from your fellow countrymen, when the little red dot starts to show up thru the airplane windows, the smell of changi airport, the cab ride to nasi lemak and the humid air that hits you once back out in the open 😍
The familiar smell of the SG air once we step into the airport, the foods and all my family.
FOOD AND CHANGI AIRPORT 😍
Love the Singapore spirit! 🇸🇬
Nostalgia swelled whenever I see the familiar faces of store owners in the heartland areas, smell the durian scent in the summer airs, and stand on this land that groomed us. Words always fail when we try to quantify why we love. I love Singapore, simply because she is my home.

The olden days when I was just a small kid wondering around my neighbourhood playing on the swing going down slides.

I love that Singapore has a garden city vision, botanic garden, parks and pcn 🌿 so many outdoor activities all year long 🥰
I love our sunsets that stretch across the country!! especially on drives home on the expressway. all of us at different parts of sg but under the same sky 🌅 and posting the same insta stories 😂
Definitely the local delights and my family. 😋 Appreciate the convenience of our transport and security, especially so after returning from overseas.😂 Found more interesting places in our little red dot to explore during this pandemic. Happy 56th birthday, Singapore! 😍
I love how we can speak different language and dialect in one sentence and still understand each other. I miss how convenient it is to go anywhere with public transport. 🇸🇬 Love Singapore, my home forever.
Miss all the food & well-connected public transport 😢
I love that everything in Singapore is so convenient! ❤️❤️
I miss my loved ones, hawker food & the special “at home“ feeling.❤️

I miss watching my nieces and nephews growing up and my parents growing old 😢
My family and friends, and FOOOOD 😍 🔥
I miss my grandpa and grandma, my friends and all the delicious foods in sg, especially Sambal stingray.

I miss my friends but particularly most is my family. Even my 8 year old girl misses her maternal grandparents! Next is the local food 😢
I love the food and all my friends. And how it’s so safe here. 🔥
I love all the amazing food, my friends & family 😍❤️
Miss the food, and friends….and the shopping….!!!!!
I miss being able to see my friends in person and eating at our hawker centers having our piping hot laska , delicious chicken rice or cold teh bing.😍
I love the fact that we can have multinational cuisine in one meal! Like Chinese, Malay, India, western food all in one meal! shioks! 🤤🤤🤤
I love that Singapore in multiracial and in that, multicultural! 🙌
The variety of food here, and our hawker culture! Just not the same anywhere else. ❤️
I love that Singapore overhead bridges always have flower blooming
I love that Singapore has a lot of greenery!!
Love how safe it is in Singapore, we can run out the door to just about anywhere and enjoy park connectors, waterfronts and glorious skyscrapers.
I miss my grandpa a“What I❤️ most about 🇸🇬: It is safe (I can generally go out alone at night without worrying much compared to other countries I been to). Love the greenery landscape we have around the country. It is a food haven!”and grandma, my friends and all the delicious foods in sg, especially Sambal stingray.
Miss proper nasi lemak, pretty shopping malls and hanging out with my sister @nurbaya.samat 👯♀️
It feels like I haven’t been home for a long time. Can’t wait for the day when I can visit home and eat all the good food and shop till I drop. 😂
Love most (but for now) definitely miss hopping into the hawkers queuing for all the yummy 🤤 food and sitting down to eat down in the hustle and bustle of life 😢
What I love most about Singapore is the FOOD; the melting pot of cuisines and how affordable good food is!
I miss the 21 deg weather where we acted like it was #winterinsingapore and suited up with all our winter wears 😂😂!
And there you have it – 56 reasons to love Singapore as she turns 56 this year!
For all our fellow Singaporeans and friends, especially those far away from home, we understand that during these difficult times, the homesickness hits harder. And we just want to let you know that no matter where you are in the world, Singapore is right there with you.
