The Other Side of the World
So here I am sat at my new temporary desk, on my new lap top, in a whole new country. We have been in Sydney for 5 days & today is the first day I feel vaguely normal. I think Russ & I masked any jet lag we had in Singapore with all our socialising & the time difference only really hit us when we arrived in Australia.
It was so good being back in Singapore, the smell, the heat, the ease, the friendliness and of course the food. I had forgotten just how good the food is and how cheap. We treated ourselves to a plush hotel, we were on the 31st floor and felt very high up indeed until we popped over to the NAB for a cocktail on the 71st floor !
We had a wonderful time at our friends wedding,
The invite said wedding attire; Colonial chic followed by beach ware for the reception at Sentosa beach (& bring your bathers) Even knowing this I had to do a double take when I realised my friend was doing her first dance in a frilly white bikini & looking just beautiful.
Thank you to Gemma for letting me share her gorgeous photos with you.
Russ & I met up with old friends and new, this is the lovely Mylene and Jonathon, who I hand delivered a Belle & Boo order to.
and who inspired me to hunt out this cute polaroid effect download, that looks like this on your screen.
Our first few days in Sydney have been equally fun, thank you so much for all the wonderful welcome messages, but more about here in my next post, because as I 'may' have mentioned I am here for another 11 weeks, yyippeeeee !
Just before I sign off my friend has relaunched her pretty online shop & if you mention my blog when you place an order (in the comments section in Paypal) she will refund you 20%
& last but most importantly a BIG Happy 40th Wedding Anniversary to my lovely mum & dad.
