Living in SIN...

...and sorely missing Bangkok. I miss the fluidity and ease of the city, its vibrant energy and welcoming, accommodating air. 

Ironically, despite its shortcode SIN, Singapore strikes me as being rather strait-laced and well, rigid, for lack of a better word.  But we're still settling in, and I'm told the place will grow on me, so I'm hoping that will be sooner rather than later.

So hello! Anyone still out there? I've been gone a long time, I know. It's just that moving countries with Moppets and Munches and a husband who's continuing to work full-time in the midst of it all is a pain in the neck, the arse and everywhere in between! Throw in an incompetent moving company - Crown Relocations, that's you - and watch the fun. Phew! It's just been a very long few months.

But we're getting there. The house is almost fully set up. Moppet has started going to a preschool that she's taken to quite well and Munch is being his usual happy self.

More soon. This is just a quick hello post. Drop me a line so that I know you're out there! :-)

Ohh you are in Singapore now? I recently moved here from India 9 months back. If you are the kind of person who doesnt mind saying a hello to a blogger then mail me (naagu.v@gmail.com)

let me know if you need any specific info, more than happy to help. In case you are wondering who the hell I am, i am that one IP in your tracker that always visits but never comments. Since you are in the same country now, I can't keep lurking can I?

PS: I cook well ;)

Maggie said...

Nags, your PS clinched it! Will email you.
