Back in Singapore


I know I know. This is the longest I've gone without updating the blog but I'm sure you all appreciate what I had to go through the past couple of weeks.

I've started work. To be honest, it was actually a relief to be at work after 2 weeks of running around trying to look for apartments & schools then settling in etc. I have already been to Ikea more times than I'd like to admit. But that's all done & even broadband's been installed (hurrah for singaporean efficiency).

No food pictures cos I haven't broken in the kitchen yet - need to go shop for pots & pans this weekend.

Because everything happened so fast, it's all so unreal. I still can't believe I'm back in Singapore & already, my life in France seemed like such a long time ago.

I've also missed blogging & catching up with what's happening with my blogging friends. Don't worry guys, I'll come around soon enough.

Now that I'm more or less settled down, I'm looking forward to enjoying the city. I'm already planning what to do this weekend - there's the Christian Lacroix exhibit at the National Museum, checking off the shows at the upcoming Singapore Arts Festival & if the weather is nice (ie less sweltering hot than it has been the past few days), perhaps a walk around Botanical Gardens.

Any place else you'd recommend going ?

Good to see you back to blogging. Wow, you are so efficient and seem to have settled in. Try the Science Centre (air con and interesting). I feel like a tourist whenever I go back so do all the touristy stuff. Even took a Duck Tour once.

Wah!! I'm jealous!!! I can't wait to go back to Singapore..at least to visit first.

edith said...

Let me know if I can be of any help. Am I stone throw away?

Singapore ZOo & Night Safari? Haha. but you know I AM a tourist in S'pore so that's what I'd do.

SL said...

Hi,
I can't believe you've moved back to Singapore. The first time heard I was off to Nice and Cannes for a short break and thought of contacting you as I've read your previous blog about Cannes - that was when I found out about this move back home.

I'm having slight withdrawal symptons now....thinking about the food......

BeLive said...

Yes, going to miss all your beautiful countryside photos...sigh just like I miss my Macungie house!

You should go to Henderson walk, somewhere near the mount Faber, if you like picturesque scenery :)

Katherine said...

Welcome back... both to the blog and Singapore, and it's the worst time ever... hot hot hot. But the rain is a great welcome every night. Is that a picture of your house now or in France? So nice the wall.
