Welp okay so things are getting a little better I think but it is slow going! But today I am having another good day so I am back to the blog and here to update you! 🙂 Here’s what Mum and I have been getting up to on our creative retreat. First here is a photo of our creative space!
Day Seven / 7th Dec
Let the shopping adventures begin!
We started the day with lunch in Tiong Bahru (I LOVE TIONG BAHRU 🙂 ) at a really cool cafe called Forty Hands! I hadn’t tried this one yet, but I’ve heard lots about it and it lived up to its reputation 🙂
Day Six / 6th Dec
SENTOSA HERE WE COME 🙂
Sentosa Island is a place I had not really been to – not properly anyway – the only time I had been there was when Glen and I went to that wedding, but since we just drove straight to the hotel and it was nighttime I don’t think it properly counts!
Sentosa has MANY things to do, way more than you could see in one day! We spent our day at Universal Studios, which is SO GOOD, and you can definitely spend a whole day there!!
We set off early and made our way over!
We’re hereeee! Universal Studios Singapore has 6 zones which are themed with a truly beautiful attention to detail: LA, New York, Sci Fi City, Ancient Egypt, Jurassic Park and Madagascar. All of the zones were cool, but the coolest thing was that it was like each of us had our own personal zone!
Sarah’s house: New York
New York is my house because it has Sesame Street AND all the retro-ness!!!!!!! I was so excited I couldn’t stand still 🙂
Day Five / 5th Dec
It’s River Safari time! Are you ready?
Day Three / 3rd Dec
Oh boy, this was one crazy day! Today we faced the difficult task of moving out of my apartment and saying goodbye to my flatmates. I didn’t take many pictures of the day because it was all very mad, but I got to show Caleb and Becca my faves prata and watermelon juice for lunch which was delish!
The past week Caleb and Becca have been visiting me! We have been up to many antics and I literally took more than 1000 photos which is a lot.
Day One / 1st Dec
I had my last exam on this morning, and Caleb and Becca had already arrived the night before, so I ubered over as soon as I finished to meet them because I was so excited that I couldn’t possibly wait for the train! We have all been staying together at the Pois, which has been a fun time!
A few more snaps from last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday!
On Wednesday we had a university day! I had a lovely time showing Nana and Grandad around my home-away-from-home 🙂
The past week my Nana and Grandad have been visiting in Singapore! Despite it being a so called “hell week” at NUS (yes, that is an actual turn of phrase here, the assignments get that mad!), we managed to do SO MUCH STUFF together, so that was really really nice 🙂 It was so lovely to have them here, and to be able to show them around, and just to see them 🙂 ❤ Here’s what we got up to 🙂
Nana and Grandad got here Friday before last – I had a pretty crazy day of classes, but we met up for Pontien noodles for lunch which is one of the yummiest foods of all time! We skyped Mum and Dad too, as you can see 😉
It has been two and a half weeks since my actual two monthiversary of being here in Singapore – BUT, even though I have been quite behind with my blogging, I did have a cupcake celebration on the actual day!
HIIII sorry, I disappeared for three weeks, but I’m back now! It has been a very busy time – my parents came to visit, and then there were midterms and there were a few stressful preoccupying happenings inbetween! But as of yesterday afternoon (after my last midterm ended), life has resumed a more normal pace, so here I am 🙂 With many adventures to update you on! Here’s what happened while the parents were here in a brief summary form that really can’t quite do justice to the hundreds of photos we took but I’LL TRY 🙂
