The game we play.

Currently at odd between getting up early to enjoy the “cooler” temperature (and it’s “cooler” in its comparative form!) and going with my daily tasks at normal hours and playing hid and seek with the scorching sun 🤔

On the plus side you get to try out creative angle with the sun and the shadows for your pictures 😉

Art in the grocery aisles.

Overwhelmed by the choices (not that I’m deprived of choices frankly in Singapore)… so I always end up buying the same trusty favorites.

No trip to Paris without a picture from Place des Vosges.

While the temperature in the south of France were far from summer temperatures we found that Paris was actually pretty warm.

This is the famous Bondi Beach.

On the left winter

On the right summer.

We’ve been told that after living in Singapore for a while (ok maybe more than 6 months!) people are looking to escape to cold destination… that’s what we did 😉

Vacation time in our summer house this year looked like a revolving door.

There were always one of them going or coming… And I was the one holding the fort.

Thank you for the good time. Glad to see the one we (well more like I) manage to meet this year, so sorry for the one we/I couldn’t see… There is always next year 🙂

THE annual haircut picture.

Yes it’s a recurring and much followed all deal on my Facebook.

This year the cut hasn’t been as drastic as previous years. I needed to keep more length to be able to tie my hair in a pony tail.

The state of my hair in humid weather had also been a recurring joke and a battle of back and forth messaging and emailing of “hair in humid weather” meme between myself and my BFF!!!

I’ll keep you posted… Or maybe not 🙂

My last coffee at our summer house before Singapore.
Mentally preparing myself 😉

Nb of day spend in our house (2016): 33

Nb of book read during summer ‘15: 14

Nb of book read during summer ‘16: ¼ of 1

I must have read 13 ¾ books in a week last year. That’s the only explanation I have.

PS: I was surprised by the numbers as I felt like I was at the house the whole time last year and barely home this year.
