You should be proud of me; I got out of the house two days in a row. First yesterday, to Remi's parent teacher interviews, then some browsing on my own and then in the evening Matt and I escorted Ella to an iceskating outing for school where we sat in a hawker centre socialising with other parents while Ella tried to iceskate for 2 hours. Today I've been out nearly all day too. And I'm exhausted. My 6am school morning alarm went off (I forgot to turn it off for Saturday morning sleep in), so Matt and I took our coffees and watched the sun rise from the roof top terrace.
Anyway, I took some photos over the last 24 hours, so here's a few fun and interesting shots from SG:
We managed to get onto the first carriage on the yellow line (MRT) last night, and as there is no driver on the newer lines, we got to "drive the train with our minds". This photo is as the train was coming into a station.
Coming down the escalators into the new Stadium MRT station...I love the way it feels like you're entering a cave...filled with water...
Today Oscar went off to rugby coaching in the morning, Kit went off to rugby training a bit later, Ella and I went off to buy her some school bathers, and Remi and Matt decided to go out and get some lunch. Thanks to the wonder of modern technology and texting, we were all able to meet up again, and we sat outside this hulking great mall and Matt bought all the kids an icecream sandwich....a LOCAL icecream sandwich for $1 which was a brick of icecream wrapped in a slice of pandan bread.
Literally an icecream sandwich.
So, a good day. Matt and I are planning on topping off the day with some cheese on the roof to watch the sun go down. It's been a lovely day; not only did it not rain (I should watch myself as there's still time), it's been lovely and breezy. You have no idea how much you come to appreciate breezes when every day is 31C with at least 80% humidity.
