Have we met?

From Celine Navarro's blog.. I am posting this on both of my blogs to see what people say...

have we met?

1. Have we met?
2. If so, where and when? If not, where and when would you like to?
3. What's the first thing you remember about me?
4. Do we stay in touch? Would you like it if we saw more of each other (or got the chance to meet)?
5. Would you consider me an internet acquaintance, internet friend, buddy, friend, close friend, best friend, family, lover or not a friend at all?

Now post them in your journal so I can tell you :)

Great Singapore Blogs

Ok, As my intent was to do more about Singapore... tell my friends and family what an awesome place Singapore is to live... I find that trying to do what I want, in addition to working my full time job....and running Far Flung Craft and trying to get SOME personal scrapbooking done... the pictures and posts about Singapore are fewer... well practically non-existant....than I wanted.

So, in order to give you all a real treat... here are some great Singapore blogs.

The first, Mr. Miyagi is an institution in Singapore blogosphere. He has recently been blogging about his time in the Singapore reserve army.

The next is a great blog I just found today, from Mr. Miyagi's article in the paper. Good Morning Yesterday is a great blog with pictures and stories about what Singapore used to be like. Awesome.

Finally, for an expat perspective on the wild wonderful world of tropical Asia... Check out Singapore Adventures. They are currently in Taiwan and eating our favorite food squid on a stick. Doesn't get any better than that.

The Freezer

The Freezer is here! We have two turkeys in it. We bought some sausage from the Swiss Butcher... I got a much needed raise. Life is not bad today.

Plus, this blog, is now ad free.

Figure if I promote simple living, less consumerism, I should clearly state this in my blog.

Seems like a silly thing, but in Singapore it is hard to find full size western refrigerators. I hate the fact that most of the time, we buy food and we have no place to store it. I have wanted for as long as I have lived in Asia to get a full size fridge. Well, alas, those are BOOKU bucks. So, Jeff and I just purchased a early christmas present for ourselves. A freezer.

It is a chest style freezer. Still tiny by way of American standards, but it is big enough for us to start stocking up on food when it is on sale. For example, Turkeys are on sale now for 4.00 a Kilo (that is about 2.00 US for a 2.2 pounds). So... we want to buy more than just for Christmas and Thanskgiving. I think we will get 3-4 turkeys and then have the ability to cook a turkey perhaps in February. Won't that be nice!

Halloween Fun

well, if you read my Far Flung Blog you know I was on the road the last two weeks. My biggest problem with that was that I was going to miss Halloween. So, being ever so smart, I organized a little halloween gathering... on the one night I would be in Town... Saturday. A few days early... but the kids had fun.

Here is Kiera the very hot lion and Declan- in his favorite spiderman outfit!

And here is the whole group. We did three apartments on our floor and then two other buildings. I think the kids liked it!
