Singapore – the gift that keeps giving

So, I do keep referencing we applied for something, have to complete a lot of paperwork for it and I can’t talk about it. That is true. I can’t. Not yet anyway. But, part of this is because of Singapore. One of the best things to come from it so far is that I get to see a cousin I haven’t seen in over … Read More Singapore – the gift that keeps giving

Getting fit and healthy in Singapore

One of the easiest things to do in Singapore, as far as trying to be more conscious of your health, is walk. The land is mostly flat and any inclines are small and short. This isn’t a hilly country, you can see hills off in the distance, mountains even. They are in different countries. Walk, walk, walk. The MRT is super easy and cheap … Read More Getting fit and healthy in Singapore

More paperwork to complete

Still can’t talk about it 😀

+ View from KL Grand Hyatt

TW, Hyatt Gloablist and Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Last time TW was at the Grand Hyatt in KL he wasn’t a super fan. On arrival, the reception staff member in the lobby told him to check in at the lounge. Took TW to the lift, walked him into the lift and left him to his own devices. TW didn’t know that they hadn’t bothered to press a button until he got the … Read More TW, Hyatt Gloablist and Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur

Singapore is more than a shopping stopover

Singapore is more than a shopping stopover, it is the ultimate family getaway. I enjoy childish things and I am really in my element here. There is something about the way this country does things that just make it so fun for adults and kids, yet I understand the point was to engage the youngsters. It isn’t just me drawn in to these displays … Read More Singapore is more than a shopping stopover

Vetmobile – Singapore

When Lola arrived we got Vetmobile to come out and do up a new script and generally check up on her. She had just been through vets for the international move. We weren’t at any of those appointments so being with a vet and asking questions was comforting but we needed to get the script for her asthma anyway so we may as well … Read More Vetmobile – Singapore

Singapore Sling – at the Iconic Long Bar, Raffles Hotel

After a day of walking. Well, about the 10-hour walking tour mark, and at the point that we missed the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest entry for the night we decided to go to Raffles. Yes, the hotel is closed for renovation, since December 2017. A massive project scheduled to take about 18 months but they gave themselves some leeway expecting it to take … Read More Singapore Sling – at the Iconic Long Bar, Raffles Hotel

Returning to our old neighbourhood

I don’t mean in Australia, I mean 200m from where we now live and the Andaz. Between Kampong Glam and Little India we had to make a stop in for a photo of the “Gotham” building. Why not get the Duo complex which houses the Andaz in as well? Actually, it was my uncles request but with my new phone I gave it a … Read More Returning to our old neighbourhood

Dazzling visitors

One thing for sure about Singapore is they really know how to put on a show. Multiple free shows a night. At a world class level. I might even suggest they are the leaders. Our visitors arrived later afternoon and we were all hungry. They specifically wanted a Satay and one of the things on their list was Gardens by the bay. Perfect, we … Read More Dazzling visitors

We have our first visitors today

We are somewhere around 105 days into our expat journey and our first visitors arrive. We have friends from the Andaz, not socialising friends but people we can talk to and we probably could be real friends, just too busy at the moment. Today though, we have family coming. It is an Aunt and Uncle on my side but TW has known them for … Read More We have our first visitors today
