You have to be in it to win it

One of my favourite things to do is to enter travel competitions. Even if it prize takes a lot of your time and regardless of it being a paid or unpaid trip (as in some prizes include spending money or an allowance if it is a long trip). I apply for sabbaticals, internships. I don’t care. If it has to do with travel and … Read More You have to be in it to win it

Forms, legalities, documents

Argh. Today was a paperwork day. We had to re-initial the lease, every page. Not to big a deal and only TW had to do it. I thought he hadn’t handed it back in but he did, so I was chasing that up and apologising to the building manager for no reason. And I have a tonne of other paperwork to complete. For something … Read More Forms, legalities, documents

Drowning

Drowning. Many people say they would like a peaceful death. So they think that drowning would be the best way to go. I heard TW’s mum say it once and he said he doubted that was any kind of peaceful. I suggested that the way my Great Grandma passed, at night in her sleep, next to her husband, from liver failure, was probably more … Read More Drowning

Oneworld award flights and concerts booked whoop

Oneworld award flights are the best value. We managed to get Bangkok – New York – Vienna – Dublin – Singapore – Sydney – Singapore all on one ticket. Putting all these flights on one ticket cost us 5,000 more points than a return to New York in points. We start in Bangkok because as soon as you return to your starting city the … Read More Oneworld award flights and concerts booked whoop

Getting used to our apartment

So there are a lot of good things about our apartment in Singapore. It is big, the air conditioners work well. We have two toilets. There is a working intercom system. Something we didn’t really take notice of before or when we were first moving into the apartment, was the bathroom doors. Both doors in the apartment are the same. We kind of just … Read More Getting used to our apartment

Moving our cat overseas from country NSW to Singapore

We have officially and successfully moved our cat from Australia to Singapore. She was with us in Sydney but has been living with my parents since August 2018. I was with her at my parents’ farm until our move to Singapore. TW was commuting between Sydney and the farm. The problem was that my parents were moving so I was with her to settle … Read More Moving our cat overseas from country NSW to Singapore

Lola has now successfully arrived in Sydney after her flight this morning. It was an early day for her and Dad, she had to be at the airport at exactly 5am and about an hour drive to get there. Mum was stressing all morning. TW and I slept in because we went to CNY celebrations last night and then watched abducted in plain sight … Read More Lola Dubbo to Sydney complete

Large, … Read More Honeymoon days 13-15 Hotel Wailea Maui

First trip to Thailand, Hua Hin – Home

The trip was great. Hua Hin, well the Hyatt Regency at least we didn’t do a huge amount of exploring, was very relaxing. Instant feeling of holiday and relaxation. I did miss Singapore. TW says he didn’t, he wants one of the suites to be his real home. Just to make sure we never travel again. The best part about our stay at Hua … Read More First trip to Thailand, Hua Hin – Home
