A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!



Throw Back Thursday: Summer 2016

The summer of Wanderlust & Friendship.

Our usually summer spent in our summer house in France with a lot of trips, most of them unplanned.

First was daughter first trip all by herself all the way to St Barts, a longer trip to Paris with hubby and son, a very very last minute girl trip to Amsterdam with BFF (booked the night before!) followed by a solo weekend in the south of France, decided while I was driving home from the airport back from Amsterdam, another trip to Paris and finally a mother-daughter trip to Switzerland to visit what would become her school 2 years later and at the same time reconnecting with expat friends (long long time ago friend). All this while managing a move from Beijing to Singapore. More pictures from summer 2016 are: https://atotaltaitaitale.tumblr.com/tagged/c&jFrance2016/chrono


Just an reminder: Since we cannot travel this summer I’ve decided to do a Throw Back Thursday of our summer in France for the past 6 years, Why 6 years because that’s only how far back this blog goes, so I can easily link to more pictures and it turns out it’s the number of weeks until school start again 😉

We are not traveling for a while…

We can either see it as being stuck here


As an opportunity to (re)discover Singapore*

There’s always two ways of seeing things (the half full or half empty glass dilemma). You can either choose to always see the negative or you can (re)train your mind at seeing the positive, the more you do it, the easier it gets.

I’ve always been a half full kinda gal. That’s how you survive this life.

The Singapore coastline is not the most paradisiacal and the oil tankers on the horizon not the most dreamy sight, yet you can decide to plant your tent between 2 palm trees and enjoy what you’ve got, just like this guy.
