Last week, I decided to experiment with more content formats and so I made an audio reading of my latest personal essay. Before I start, I also offer some more context about the job that I gave up and other considerations that I had on my mind before making the decision to stay in Singapore.
Recording myself speaking is a pretty novel experience for me. I never realized how noisy my neighborhood was before doing so; I had to stop every five minutes because otherwise, you would be able to hear the train and other traffic sounds in the background. I eventually went to my friend’s house to record parts of it, so I hope the audio doesn’t sound too disjointed. Anyway, you can listen to it on Anchor or on Spotify.
