I know, I know. It's been quiet on the home front and I have lots of catching up on posts to do! Before I go on silent mode again (just for a short while, I promise!), I just wanted to let everyone know that well, the home front has changed! We've moved to Singapore!
Yeah, what a shocker right? I feel like things have been happening so fast, although we pretty much knew we were going to make the move back to Asia sometime, from the very start. Well, that time was now. And it couldn't have come at a better time!
Fast and life changing as it may seem, then again, that's the story of my life. It seems there's always a quick, major move in my life every 3 years or so, always some place new and always for the best - a new school, a new job, a new home or a new country, in no particular order. I've gotten used to it, I almost look forward to moving. So, it's a welcome adjustment! Dear Hubby of course had no qualms about moving, he's always on to his next big goal. We made the move because of him, and we just happily tagged along! Even Berry is taking this change in scenery all in stride, she flew so well, and didn't even cry in the plane! She just hated being strapped with a seat belt. Other than that, she was such a pro, given that it was her first flight, and a long haul one at that! Dear Hubby and I were so relieved! I bet our fellow passengers were relieved as well. When we stepped into the lounge, I could sense some fear amongst the business travelers when they saw Berry. I think they were secretly hoping we weren't in the same flight as them, having spent good money, only to be disturbed by a crying baby! (Hello, that's what noise reduction ear phones are for! But I think I owe it to our seats that convert into a fully flat bed - Berry and I slept like babies snuggled beside each other, well, Berry IS a baby! Haha! Parents, take note, SQ's A340 - the answer to a pleasant long haul traveling experience for you and your baby!)
But apart from missing NYC and tax free shopping online and in NJ, our siblings (Hi Trina, Jun & Les) still staying in the US, and our friends who've practically become family, it's good to be near home! We love it that Manila is just a 3.5 hour plane ride away, and family and friends can visit more often! Yay!
PS - To my dear readers based in or frequently visit SG, please come out and say hello! And share tips on where to eat, shop and live! We're apartment hunting as I speak! Hope to run into you as well!
