A Total TaiTai Tale

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



It’s now safe to take down the Christmas decorations since the visit of the Magi to the Christ Child is over.

I have also discovered that I have a higher chance of getting la fève (trinklet) if I get an individual Galette des Rois (King’s Cake)

October 2016. Bali, Indonesia

And we are back in Bali but this time around it’s almost in our backyard and the de-facto destination since we’ve moved to Singapore a few months prior.

We ventured all the way to the east of the island of Bali to Amed to explore a scuba diving spot… and to prove the point that the world is indeed a very small world.

After settling in our guesthouse, hubby & scuba diving daughter go on a search for a Padi club. The girl at the reception sounds French so start a barter of Q&A with hubby: H: Are you French? R: Yes. H: From where? R: The South. H: My wife too. Where exactly? R: Grenoble. H: Her too. Well closer to Voiron. R: me too, It’s a very small village called St Qxx. H: You are kicking?! That’s her village.

Turns out she was from the small village of less than 1,200 inhabitants 13,000 kms from where we meet. She’s younger than me and she moved after I left for the states in 1990 but my cousins know her well. (Because I obviously had to activate the “Chinese whispers”)


~~~Just a little FYI So for my last 200 days in Singapore I have decided to reblog, in no special order, a post from the 6 years I will have spent on the Little Red Dot.

*Well I changed my mind. Since it’s vacation time and I cannot travel I want to relive our experiences in Asia with a few pictures.

I have excluded pictures of our trips because I have already reposted them while we were stuck on our Little island during the past 2 years (& you can find them here!). PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!! ~~~
