… stands for a Surprise Short-trip to Singapore!
just like the name, it was a surprise trip–not something we planned for from a long time–and it was short. the main idea was just to meet my parents and spend quality time together.
and that we did!
and because that was the main idea, i don’t really have much to tell about the trip itself, nor that much pictures. we mainly stayed in, going out only to get lunch and dinner, talked & played cards. might be boring for you to see, but it was so much fun for us. 🙂 most of the pics we got was from our last full day together, when we visited the Botanic Gardens, the only place we went to other than restaurants/grocery stores. 😀 (okay, we also went to Mustafa Centre, of course, but that doesn’t count.)
our Airbnb apartment this time had a living room AND dining room!
a nice gate near our Airbnb apartment.
oh, how i’ve missed this food court (same one as the one in 2016, LOL).
a video call with my sister (& her daughter, for a few seconds) in Bali.
the only place we went to that was not a restaurant/shop: Botanic Gardens.
love the ‘wildlife’ in these gardens.
… and it looked to the camera!
there are many of them!
we may look like taking pictures of the scenery, but we were actually stalking that shiba inu dog at the left bottom corner. 😀
we even saw a biawak aka monitor lizard!
isn’t it cute?
hubby took this picture because he says it reminds him of the view in Jakarta (where we haven’t been now for 6 years). he’s right.
bye bye, Botanic Gardens!
spotted this temple on our way to the airport. maybe a visit next time?
Laksa for our last meal together before we part… for now.
and all yumminess must end.
let’s hope one day they will really be able to go to the REAL Nordic countries (just Finland will do, too!).
bye for now! see you next time!
our ride, Finnair’s A350.
the only physical souvenir for myself (and gift from Mum): a Tsumori Chisato catalog + bag!!
it’s HUGE! i used it right away for flying back from Singapore. 😀 handy!
and of course, we also got these matcha snacks! yum yum!
… and we’re not sharing them with anyone, mwahahaha!
though the jetlag left us tired but it was at the same time so refreshing and came at just the right moment when i was so fed up with work. i miss my parents again already now, but hopefully our next gathering isn’t too far away from now. 🙂
happy summer & mid-year (and soon midsummer), everyone! ❤
PS. the pictures were taken by 4 different people and 5 different cameras, hence the quality differences.
