When you’ve travelled the same road a million times, it’s hard to appreciate the view.
That was how Anthony felt doing his photography assignment with classmate, Kim. It was impossible for him to find a fresh perspective.
Sentosa: A childhood attraction turned getaway destination
They were at Sentosa Island to complete their university assignment. The reluctant Singaporean was a stark contrast to the excitable Filipino exchange student. After all, as a local, it was an oft-visited attraction throughout his childhood.
To Anthony’s surprise, his jaded frown turns upside down as the day passed and he finds himself discovering a whole new side to the iIsland.
Can old haunts spark new joy?
In the words of the French author, Marcel Proust, “the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.”
Through Kim’s eyes, Anthony finds himself awash with a sense of wonder. From forests to beaches, what was old is new again as he gets lost exploring a place he had written off.
It’s a feeling that keeps him floating on air, inspiring fresh takes into the beyond.
‘Somewhere Only We Know’ is made in collaboration with Sentosa. It is one of 4 episodes of the ‘Sentosa Presents….’ series. Find out more about it here.
