Quick word to say HI

Hey all, it's been a while since I've been posting. We were away on the best holiday and just got back last night. Almost two weeks away soaking in the sun and surf in Bali, Indonesia and eating ourselves silly in Singapore. Just a little depressed we have to be back home already but hubby had to go back to work.

We were incredibly lucky to have amazing weather in both places and it only rained just as we were pulling into each airport to leave. What timing. We traveled with three other close couple friends and had a blast. We went snorkeling and saw some amazing tropical reefs. I did a Balinese cooking class with my friend, Joanne, after which we got to enjoy the fruits of our labour. Most of all, as we had rented a villa for the week, we sat in front of the pool, "just chillin'".

Wonderful craft market in Ubud, Bali.
Floral offerings which the Balinese set out every day.
Bubur - a popular Balinese breakfast of congee and savoury condiments.
Stunning sunset from the beach in front of the villa we stayed in.
After seven days in Bali, we all flew back to Singapore for three days. I especially love Singaporean and Malaysian food, so I was in heaven, although I am now paying the price and will have to subsist on salad greens for the next few months. We also got to enjoy a day in Universal Studios, where  Miss C wanted to go on the kiddies' roller coaster again and again.

We're back home with a bang now. Hubby's at work, and I had to go stock up on groceries. While we were away, a massive typhoon hit Hong Kong, bringing down trees and signposts all over the city. The clean up is still happening and it was sad to see several of my favourite shade trees lose their grip on the earth and end up with their roots in the air.

With over a thousand holiday pictures, I will have enough to scrapbook for a while. Better get started on that soon.

See you in the next post.
