Honestly, when I was growing up, I'd never feel too excited about visiting Singapore because all I wanted was to get away from where I spent my childhood. I was so negative about everything -- well, everything except the food -- and it took seeing Singapore through the hub's eyes and moving thousands of miles away to fully appreciate where I came from. People would ask me if I was going to apply for US citizenship and it hit me... No, I'm Singaporean. I was born a Singaporean, and I will die one. I'm proud of my heritage, where I come from, and I get so excited when people ask me about Singapore. It's an amazing place, and it's a pity it took so much for me to realise this.
Anyway, we're not just going to Singapore this time... we're going to Australia too! There's family there I haven't seen in FOREVER and four new members of the family I have yet to meet. Three babies and a cousin-in-law. So excited!!!
So. As if this blog isn't quiet enough lately, it's going to get quieter. I'll try to blog while I'm away but I promise nothing. I might be too deliriously happy being surrounded by family and my two sisters to remember that I have a blog heehee! There will be a giveaway while I'm gone though... look out for that! And hopefully I'll be able to take pictures of a couple of quilts I've finished lately before I leave so I can share.
Pictures from here, here and here.
