Singapore Trip

@ 14 months 4 weeks 1 day

Hubs and I went to Singapore on Friday. It was just an overnight trip and we did not bring Ryan along also knowing we simply do not have the luxury to sneak back to hotel during Ryan’s nap times. Yes, no joke. Busy busy day! So, as much as we know we gonna miss him, we made the decision to leave him under to good care of his beloved grandparents.

Hmm.. some of you have known, many have not, hubs and I (and our precious Ryan of course), are moving to Singapore so our trip down to Singapore this round was a jam packed one, itinerary all lined up from 10am to 4pm. Jialat leh. As a result we did not really *benefited* much from the great Singapore sale. We stayed at Raffles Plaza Hotel so the only glimpse we literally had of the sale was from Raffles City and a quick stroll at Takashimaya.

During our short 2D/1N stay, we called home many times to find out about Ryan, if he’s okay, has he eaten, did he nap, etc etc. When we spoke to MIL on Saturday morning she told us Ryan woke up 2 times the night before, 3am and 6am. So pitiful. Bet both MIL and Ryan did not have a good sleep.

We got home around 11.30pm last night. Ryan was already asleep but was quickly aroused when he heard the commotion. I was just next to him and when he saw me, he gave me the sweetest smile ever. So, he missed me. Yay! But but, being the ever Daddy’s boy, that’s it when he saw hubs. He gave Daddy the double sweetest smile, raised up from bed, clinged on to Daddy like a koala bear. Then guess what. The two laid on bed, side by side, just like two lovely birds. Yay! He missed Daddy doubly more!!! No doubt of that. *Adoi~~~ slap head*.

We may be going to Singapore again this Friday and we have decided to drive this round and may as well confirm the exact place we’ll be staying by this weekend too. So far we have shortlisted, Trellis Tower, Orleando, Bayshore and East Meadows. (Anyone familiar with the few areas? Are they good?). Have not looked at any specific units. I am quite astounded by the speed these units are being snapped. Our agent actually lined up 10 units for us to see last week, 7 were snapped the day before. Amazing!

We didnt really have the time luxury to shop around but when we saw this 25inch remote controlled robot, we just knew we had to get it. Damage: Only S$39/ la… -. *Ryan loves it* :P

  12. < ![CDATA[It's good to move to Singapore too since it's getting more and more dangerous in our country. After my colleague's incident, I think it's better to go Sg, although it's expensive and people there are kiasu but at least it's a safe and fair country.]]>

  13. < ![CDATA[I love it too. The Robot is so cute.... Worth it, Worth it! Anything that we bought for our kids, as long as they really like it. Then, it's always worth the money, right?]]>

  14. < ![CDATA[Raffles is in the middle of everything.. and from Bayshore.. it's about an hour to go to Raffles by MRT .. and if you are driving.. it would be at least 30mins. Try to get a place near to the MRT that would save alot of time and money.. for you and hubby. You should try and get in contact with EastCoastLife.. she is in Singapore.. and she would be able to help. Let me know.. if you want her contact.. or you can go to her blog.
    Good luck ya..!]]>

  18. < ![CDATA[I have the same question, will you be a SAHM then? Hehe..........

    I think S’pore is better in term of education as compare to M’sia but the be prepared for the kiasuism.

  22. < ![CDATA[welcome, welcome to SG! If travel by MRT to work, the timing should be ok even if you stay in the east. But if you are driving, then look for places that are nearer.. anyway SG is small so it is really not far away.. but what abt u?? if you are SAHM travelling with ryan on mrt, then look for places that's near the MRT. better for you.]]>

  25. < ![CDATA[wau..a big change for u to relocate to a new country and also your role as a SAHM..hope to hear more from you on ur new role by then..

    I was in Singapore last week too. Don’t worry, u did not miss out much on the GSS coz wasn’t really that good too (with the high exchange rate now). Was at Robinson in Raffles City too, quite disappointing. Anyway, once u move there, u’ll have lots of chance of shopping there.

    Good luck in ur move and blog more about it…]]>
