Hey everyone! My name is Neal Mulnick and I am an accounting and information systems major in the Foster School of Business studying abroad in Singapore at the National University of Singapore. I have been in Singapore for about two months so far and am having the time of my life.
School has been surprisingly similar to life at UW, with the nice benefit of being located in clean Singapore while being in the proximity to some of the most culturally rich countries in the world. Singapore itself has an interesting mix of developed skyscrapers while remaining green everywhere you look.
So far I have had the opportunity to visit Malaysia, the Philippines and in a few hours Thailand. In Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia we visited the Petronas Towers and the Hindu Batu Caves, in the Philippines we went scuba diving and snorkeling with whale sharks, and much more! The absolutely amazing thing about Southeast Asia is the drastic change in culture with every border you cross. Not to mention Singapore, the multicultural meritocracy with a Chinese majority, surrounded by a Malaya world.
Well, I have to leave for the airport in twenty minutes for my flight to Bangkok, Thailand…so until next time, I look forward to sharing more adventures.
