Need to meet you over at Robertson Quay then. You'll forget about home!

No Surprise, its usually the 1st week when you feel the most home sick and then you get so used to it that when you go home, you want to go back to Singapore ASAP :)

If you're walking up Mt Faber, walk all the way through Henderson Waves, canopy walk etc (while taking in the view) until you reach Hort Park. From Hort Park, either take bus or walk and you will reach IKEA :P

I don't miss home because I'm not in exile here.
