I have a friend who — every time a good friend leaves Singapore (which can be often, given how transient the city is) — creates a part-scavenger hunt, part-docu series for the departing party. The entire activity lasts either 15 or 30 days, depending on the person’s availability, and requires the departing friend to complete a daily (or every other day) challenge, snapping a photo, and posting it somewhere. Each challenge requires the leaving person to do something: travel somewhere, find something, bring someone something, etc. All of this with the intention of touring Singapore, enjoying its sights, sounds and people, one last time.
This friend, Saiveer, is one of my closest in Singapore, after having worked together for several months at Superunion (which included many international work trips and glasses of wine!). We were fast friends. I have always admired his spontaneity, creativity and sense of adventure, so this month-long game came as no surprise! Of course, Zé joined me for the ride. I met up with Saiveer, received the pack of (very professionally done!) cards he prepared, and we were on our way.
Over the course of 30 days, we completed 15 total challenges, with 48 hours to complete each challenge. We’ve now completed all the tasks and are looking at our final few days in Singapore. Of course, the challenge would not be complete without documentation of the series (or so the instructions said), so here we go. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as we enjoyed taking them. Big shoutout to Saiveer for putting this special challenge together for us, too!
We are heading to the airport in just a few hours, so I can officially say: Sam in Singapore, that’s a wrap!
