Two weeks in Singapore

We’re nearing the end of our two week vacation in Singapore already. This is the longest time I’ve come back to visit since moving abroad. Previously, it was always a jam-packed few days in and out between stopovers to nearby destinations. But since I’ve started to work remotely, and since we’re in between intercontinental moves, we thought it would be a good break to just slow down a little in Singapore.

Good times. We got to hang out with my parents a lot this trip, as well as really taken advantage of the new house they’ve built.

Enjoying the new pool – glad that my dad finally got convinced to turn the pond into a swimming pool!

We also got to play tourists in Singapore.

And had fun at the Trick Eye Museum at Resorts World Sentosa

I got to catch up with most of my friends too, at least once. The last time we were back two years ago, many friends were still living at home with their parents. The majority have now bought their own place, and started families already. It’s still a little startling how we’ve changed every time I think about it. Gosh.

And of course, we ate a lot this holiday. Too much. Trying to kickstart the intense workout I need to do once we end this little holiday, by swimming and climbing during the day. It’s not nearly enough though. We’ve enjoyed at least 3 big meals every single day. Usually, we just can’t resist throwing in a plate or two of hawker goodness for tea. We’ve checked off our favorite dishes at least 3 times this trip. 🙂

And now we’re finally ready, I think, for our next adventure!
