Who Wants to Join Me On My F² ???

Curious John: F²? What's that?

Preethi: Never heard of it?

Curious John: Nope, never, but I am dying to find out! Just tell me, already!

Preethi: Well, well, here goes...


Yes, that's right! Let me tell you a bit about FUNtastic Fridays, or F², as I call it. I have been living in Switzerland for many years now, and despite that, I feel that I am still not used to the slow pace of life here. That's because I spent much of my life in Singapore where you wouldn't even notice the minutes go by. So, after my university friends left Switzerland, I ended up being one of the very few ones left here and started to feel a bit lonely. Then came the complaining. As wonderful as Switzerland is, I somehow always missed my faster paced life in Singapore.

Well, in 2010, I decided to stop complaining and do something about it. I realized that I wasn't being fair to Switzerland, and I wanted to give it another chance. I often heard from friends and acquaintances that there are in fact many things to do, but you need to dig deeper to find out what they are.

That's exactly what F² is about. Since the start of this year, I am specifically making it a point to do something on Friday nights. For me, it's the best day to do it as I put an end to a stressful week at work and I can cool down and welcome the weekend. Most importantly, with F², my goal is to discover more of Switzerland, go to places I have never been to before, try out new things and have FUN.

I have done it thrice so far, and I can tell you that it's doing wonders. I have infact discovered more places in Geneva and am now constantly on the lookout for events taking place in the region.

I will blog about my F² every week, and I hope that those of you who live in Switzerland or plan to visit it in the near future will find my tips useful!

Preethi: So, what do you say, John? Would you like to join me on my F² tomorrow?

Curious John: You bet! I just can't wait for tomorrow now!

Alright, folks, I am off to have some fun tomorrow! Ciao!
