A Total TaiTai Tale

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

Another night another rooftop party.

No our life is not all parties but with one week to go before school end. our calendar is quite full.

.

Now you see me. Now you don’t.

I used to play this game with pollution in Beijing, now I do it with the rain in Singapore ;-).

I swear my car GPS is trying to teach me how to find my way home without her help (it’s a she!).

Thrice this past week the GPS wouldn’t connect until I was literally turning the corner of my own street.

Most of the time I know more or less where I’m at (cannot go far without getting to the edge of the island at one point or another anyway!) but almost all the roads/streets are one way and when you miss your turn or exit it can be a pretty long detour to get back on track hence why everyone use the GPS intensively.

When your plans keep on being cancelled you can at least resort to one on one quality time with a book by the pool.

Advantages of living in a resort like condominium.

When your husband cannot wait for you to finish your shower to show you his Pinterest-worthy (his words not mine!) breakfast for the kids.

It’s been an amazingly productive week!

I had a class scheduled every morning this week which has been postponed so I ended up with a lot of free time and not much to fill it out with (which make me even more a procrastinator!).

June… the Cry Me A River month in the expat world.

A year ago we were starting a month of good bye parties to friends in Beijing.

Today I opened a random book and found this “GoodBye” photo from one of the last party.

As this is our first year in Singapore the good bye parties are not much in our agenda but 2 friends are leaving (my walking around the Island buddy and a mom from school who was great at welcoming me and including me in her outings even though she’s been here 6 years and have a steady group of friends).

I’m sharing because those sunrises won’t last forever.

Well yes the sun will keep on rising (duh!) but it will be slightly more to the side and it will be obstructed by the building.

I’m just going to pretend I didn’t skip my Monday walk yesterday by reclining this cute picture of the walk from the previous week we call “Along the Southern Ridges”. 😉
