Dominiquetiu 's thoughts:

How can one call themselves Bohemians?

If you recall your lessons in World History, “Bohemianism” was a movement of artists and poets in the late 19th century, France. They believed in living outside the “bourgeois mainstream culture.” They were against the Salon and believed that art, literature, and even politics should be “radical.” Bohemianism eventually died out but it left to spawn Surrealism, the beat generation, punk rock, and American Bohemianism amongst others.

Nowadays, Bohemian is a term you used to describe “free thinkers”–people who lead lives without much regard for conventions. It’s not to be confused with hipsters as the latter is more on upholding “pretenses” (no offense meant, I consider myself a hipster). According to the Urban Dictionary, Bohemians are people who “lead an alternative lifestyle.” They’re not to be mistaken for hippies as well because they have an extremely wide range of “tastes in music, fashion, art, literature”, and they are usually very “creative people.”

For our brief trip to Singapore, my boyfriend, my sister, and I felt like legit Bohemians… all because we were parent-less, sans an itinerary, with no such interests partaking in touristy activities, and totally focused on the art of… shopping.
