ANSWER

(What the promise was) 

Some days ago, I promised to guide my boyfriend and his closest friend around Singapore when life returned to normality after Covid-19. While I was scrolling through my old photos in Singapore, my boyfriend caught me doing it and asked whether I would like to bring him and his friend to Singapore next time. I said yes without hesitation. Bringing my friends to Singapore to introduce them to its modern beauty and advanced technology, especially the world-renowned Changi Airport.

(To whom you made it) 

Actually there were a bunch of people there, but I only made this promise to my boyfriend and his closest friend. I didn’t want to bring too many people overseas as things might get out of hand.

(Whether it was easy or difficult to keep) 

Since I am a tourism major and have accumulated a great deal of experience in travelling around Singapore thanks to my 8 trips to this tiny city-state, I guess bringing only 2 more people along with me to Singapore wouldn’t be a great deal. However, the only thing I’m concerned about now is the lingering Covid-19 pandemic, which has brought international travel to a halt and is yet to show any sign of slowing down.

(And explain why you made it) 

Singapore is always an ideal destination for a short weekend getaway for Vietnamese people as it is only two hours from Vietnam. Also, thanks to my knowledge about Singapore, I can be sure that if I ever make this promise, I know the likelihood of me going back on my word is low and that I won’t make me, my boyfriend and his friend disappointed.
