Not settling down just yet


Since our arrival in Singapore, there has been a lot more traveling than I'd expected. No longer do we have the luxury of just walking down town or making a short run to the pier. Every destination away from home requires an MRT stop or two, so a car comes pretty handy. Bus rides to KL are 5 hours long bearing customs/immigration in mind or 4 if you drive. The heat is not unlike Boston/NY summers but definitely takes time to adjust. Right now as I type, my glasses are slipping down the sweaty bridge of my nose. How very attractive.

Despite it all, it really is exciting to be here.


How Singapore greeted me: with down pours in September


How my country greeted me: (WTF!) at the Negeri Sembilan rest stop. Before I scare you hopeful visitors away, this rarely happens in KL, my hometown. Ahem*


All my fears were easily mitigated by a nice meal of Nasi Kerabu and Ayam Percik (gotta love Kelantan food)


...and endless puppy kisses by Lola


Ah. Home sweet home!
