A few months ago it would have looked like we were about to rob a bank, now we are just enjoying coffee together and just happy to finally meet face to face, I mean more like mask to mask.

We met 4 years ago when we arrived in Singapore at a Newbies Facebook Group gathering. We call ourselves the Oldies nowadays. We are all from different part of the world, different backgrounds, different stages in life, but somehow it all works, plus there are 5 of us which is the number of people who can meet up at one.

I’ll go to Disneyland every Tuesday again this year… or at least it looks like it.

On my way to Sentosa aka resort island for Outigger Canoe session. Back to school means back to my own routine too.

My Tuesday commute lately.

It might come as a surprise to my friends.

My “love” of the beach is well documented…. well more my lack of love.

Ocean, wet hair, practicing huli (falling in water!) somehow doesn’t bother me as much. I guess it’s the inactivity near the beach/water that’s the problem!

Supporting friends.

Over the years, in every country I’ve lived I’ve met amazing women and I’ve tried to support them in any endeavors they take on… that can be going to see their amateur play like here, buy some products from their latest venture, telling other about their new business, or stepping in when they need somebody to hold their hand at a difficult time.

#WomenSupportingWomen.

Another amazing friend was in town this weekend but unfortunately his wife couldn’t come.

We met Eric and Leith within the first few weeks of our first expat posting in Buenos Aires 21 years ago. They have been the bench mark for all the friends we have made throughout our 20+ years of expat living all over the world. The husband/wife good friend combo is not an easy one to get, it happened a handful of time but when it does it’s great.

Actually the +/- 8 couples we got to hang out the most during our time in Argentina set the bar. Very high I must say 😉

Our path crossed once, it might cross again!

When you have a meeting at Marina Bay Sands but there’s a mega conference hence there is zero parking spot so you end up at a parking on the other side of the Marina and you have to run around the esplanade to be on time but you still stop for a minute to enjoy the view (and take a quick picture too 😉) and remind yourself how lucky you are to live here.

Also already starting to say goodbye to dear friend who are moving on to other place and other project.

I would have run around the esplanade twice to not miss my meeting.

One of the amazing advantages of living in Singapore it’s that it is an hub for (business and private) travel in the region which means reconnecting with friends met years ago (15 years in this case) in other far away land (Aberdeen, Scotland)

We were raising babies at the time… we kept moving around, they kept having babies and settle in Australia.

Let’s hope we don’t wait another 15 years before meeting again and bring your wife next time.

When your daughter has better connection than yourself.

We got invited to the launch of a new luxury cruise yacht at the Republic Of Singapore Yacht Club before its departure on Sunday. #DaughterFriendParentConnection.

Originally built as a British Royal Navy Explore, the Aqua Blu has become a world-class luxury cruise yacht. The 15 cabins boat will cruise in the heart of the coral Triangle in East Indonesia between Komodo National Park, Ambon & Spice Island and Raja Ampat.

No Photos were allowed but trust me it was GORGEOUS.

When you are comfortable enough with your BFF that you don’t mind having your virtual coffee chat barely awaken… but decide to spare your readers with your barely awaken face 😉
