A Total TaiTai Tale

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



This summer we did 9 evening walks over the 9-week break.

We decided this time to up the challenge and do the 9 walks over the first 9 days of the year and before school restarts.

The key for success is to take the (really) long detour to the restaurant/hawker center so J doesn’t realize he’s clocking the minutes and the kms 😉

NB: We did 60+ kms this summer and we are just shy of 60 kms this time

“My” little fishermen are back in action.
Life in its simple form.

April 2017. Beijing, China

Another trip that I hadn’t classified as a “trip” because it almost felt like we were going back home. It had been indeed home for 3 years until less than a year ago.

Another birthday trip, this one with dear daughter. We decided that our birthday present this year should be a trip back to Beijing to visit our respective BFF. Mission accomplished.

Seeing a city as a tourist is completely different than living there. That is one of the reason I love this “expat” life so much; it allow us to not just skim the surface of a place, we go slightly deeper and we get a permanent connection. Connections link us.


~~~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!! ~~~
