Good morning.

Day one of summer school holiday. …. 57 more to go. #ButWhoIsCounting?

Note to self: remember to turn off all alarms… you do not need to see the sun rises for the next 2 months (unless you want to!)

Enjoying one last breakfast al fresco reading the local newspaper.

While I’ll miss the garden, I cannot complain about my morning view in Singapore overlooking the wide open space toward Malaysia from my 28th floor balcony.

“La Montagne, Ca Vous Gagne” *

This was the slogan in the 90s to entice more people to go to the mountains, not only during the wintertime but also in the summer.

With more and more people enjoying nature and being tired of overcrowded beach (plus the more and more frequent heatwave) the French Alps is sure a great idea.

* loosely translate to “The Mountain, It Wins You Over”

View from above of Voiron… home of Rossignol ski, Chartreuse liquor and Bonnat Chocolate! We even manage to pinpoint grandma and grandpa home.

The little white mark (it’s a Stone quarry) on the mountain on the horizon marks La Rivière and our summer house. It’s also the road to the South of France and La Vallée du Rhône.

Enjoying the view of the Alps with the Vercors, Chartreuse and Belledone Massifs all around and valley in the middle.

When your local cafe has a sense of humor

NB: Volé à l’Indiana = Stolen from the Indiana (coffeeshop)

PS: I didn’t snatch it… only snapped (a photo 😉)

It’s official…

My arms seem to have shorten.

On top of it printers are using smaller and smaller fonts on books and packaging 🙄

I caved in and got reading glasses!!

Life in the slow lane.

Feel like my days are a succession of meal.

And he’s back.

3-week of summer camp went by so fast (maybe because I was having fun myself in St Barthélemy?!).

He had an awesome time and was quite chatty on the drive back home.

We got to have a second try

They say it was due to strong wind… I say I wasn’t satisfied by my photo of our approach of St Bart 😉

NB: I had to speed up the video as it wasn’t loading the full length otherwise. Landing is slightly slower.
