After all the travelling that I did in Brunei and then Sabah … I have not been out ever since I arrived on Friday. Not to the shops, not to visit any of my friends or former colleagues … nor any of my family, either! Arrghhh … lazy me … I have been passing the time just idling at my sister’s home, trying to get use to the hot and humid weather.
But not any more … it is time that I start making my rounds around Singapore … to help the economy a little by going shopping, especially since it is now the Great Singapore Sale (hehehe … I loikeee!) … meeting up with friends … and taking care of other personal errands that I need to do whenever I am back in Singapore.
And … it is also time to do a bit of exercises to get rid off some of the calories that I have gained from one week of indulging in the food of Sabah and Brunei … not only by going out more … but hopefully by swimming regularly, too.
Looking at the kilos that I have been accumulating after just one week of gorging myself on delicious food while on holiday in Brunei and Sabah … and by the tightness of some of my clothes … errr … I think I better take it easy on the food in Singapore. It is not going to be easy … but I will try lah … so that I will not look overly tembam (chubby) at my sister’s wedding in 2 weeks! hehehe …. 🙂
The view of the pool from the bedroom where I am sleeping … and …
… the view of the pool from the study cum computer area where I am sitting while typing this entry.
Now you can understand why I keep feeling as if the pool is calling out to me “come, come … come to me!” hehehe … 🙂
Even if one is not swimming, it is nice and breezy just to sit near the pool area …
Which is why … it usually takes quite a bit of self-persuasion for me to go out in the hot weather to do my errands and get my shopping done whenever I am back in Singapore!
But enough of dawdling at home … it is now time to go out to take advantage of my visit … starting this very afternoon!!
Casablanca Condo … where my sister lives in Woodlands … and my temporary lodging whenever I (or the hubby) come to Singapore. They have been living here since 2005 … and since then, I have been one of their more regular visitors … even before I went to live in Lausanne. 🙂
It is a nice place, no? But I have to admit that I do miss my own place in Singapore … and sometimes wish I could have stayed there instead whenever I am back for a visit. But since I am renting it out, so no choice lah! C’est la vie …
