Seasons Greetings!

Today I thought I'd quickly share with you a few photos of our spartan apartment. 

Decorations are few and far between, as are presents but I did manage to purchase a couple of little sparklies to hang around the place.

Welcome to our *ahem* very humble abode

Having a quick look at these pics makes it all look a bit depressing but that it is not.  Christmas is more about spirit and cheer to me and we are very excited to be spending our second Christmas together with just US.

Nothing beats quality family time and forging new traditions, like having the infamous Singapore chilli crab for Christmas Eve dinner!  I'm looking forward to dinner tonight and can feel myself salivating already :)

Wishing you and your families a very safe and happy Christmas and a prosperous New Year!

Naughty Girl

A totally non-Christmas related post today.  


I was just reading about Christina Aguilera's "raunchy" performance (go to the bottom of the article to see the performance) at the X Factor UK final last night and whilst I have to agree that it was pretty risque, boy, did it sure pique my interest in the movie.

All I'd known up until today was that Christina, Cher and a personal fave starlet, Veronica Mars, Gossip Girl, Kristin Bell were in the movie.  I'd been following the red carpet premieres over the world solely for the fashion.

And that's about it.

A little bit of digging shows that the cast is quite impressive - the above-mentioned ladies and also Alan Cumming (love him in the Good Wife), Cam Gigandet (drool), Dianna Agron (Glee), Eric Dane (Greys Anatomy), Peter Gallagher (the father in the OC), Stanley Tucci (in a million movies but you might remember The Devil Wears Prada) - and that's just to name a few.

I've never really been a big Christina fan but have to hand it to the lady that she has one killer voice and I love that she's rocking a couple of extra kilo's at the moment and looking as sexy as ever.

Get me to a movie theatre stat!

Hungover without the Alcohol

The last couple of days I haven't been feeling the best.  It feels like I have a hangover but I haven't been drinking and as a result I've been resting quite a bit.

BuBba is getting a little stir crazy because we haven't left the apartment much and is running out of things to play with.  

What's a boy to do?

Of course!  

Let's throw Mummy's tampons in the toilet.  

Eeeeeek!   Ughhhhhh!
That'll teach me for ignoring the quiet as I lay down to rest for a few minutes.

PS.  No babies were harmed in the taking of these pictures :)

Bah Humbug

It hasn't really felt like Christmas this year.  It'll just be the three of us and to be honest, there's been so much going on with the move that we really haven't been able to focus on anything else.

In an effort to try and get in to the Christmas spirit, I've booked us in for a Christmas Day buffet lunch at a hotel on the Singapore River.  

I've already started praying to the Gods and crossing all my fingers and toes that BuBba will be well behaved but I know better.  He's at that wonderful stage where he wants to get out of the highchair five minutes after he was put in there, he loves to throw food around, right after he spits it out (fully masticated), and generally scream and shout and make me want to tear my hair out.  I think I'm going to have to plan a kit that includes a myriad of foods (just in case the variety of a buffet doesn't suit!) and a box full of toys to try and divert him from wrecking havoc.  At least he still isn't walking yet so I won't have to worry about running after him.

A few times a week, I walk through Chinatown and every time I stop by a little cheap store that has tacky Christmas decorations and consider buying a Christmas stocking to hang on the door and maybe a Santa hat to shove on BuBba's head and take photos to send back home to the relos.  Something's been stopping me so far and I think it's because my sub-conscious is telling me to pull my finger out and get in to the spirit of Christmas and go out to Orchard Road and buy some "real" pretty decorations.  Good thing we're heading there on the weekend to try and get BuBba a present.


Today we received our first Christmas presents and that was the thing that got me thinking about Christmas and all that jazz.  My best friend/BuBba's godmother, who is usually anti-gifts with a passion, sent over a couple of small gifts - one for me (yay!) and one for the little dude.  I didn't think Santa would find us this year so it was quite a surprise and hell, if she can get all festive then I certainly can! 


I can feel a shift in my Scrooge attitude and although it's coming quite late in the season, it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas.

Another One Bites the Dust

Scarlett & Ryan

Dexter & his sister Umm, I mean Michael C Hall & Jennifer Carpenter

Hunky hunk Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens


What's with all these break-ups before Christmas???

A noteable mention (although it does involve 2 separations) but let's not forget about  these two lovebirds and their blossoming relationship.

Oh boy, what on earth is she thinking?

Ok La! Back in to the Swing of Things

HULLOH HULLOH!  Did you miss me?  I sure missed you all and it's mighty nice to see that I don't seem to have lost any readers according to Mr Google counter thingy over there to the right.

My oh my, how quickly did the last four weeks pass?  I really thought I'd be able to pop in here and there and do some quick updates but time just got away from me and before I knew it, BAM!

We have been in Singapore for two weeks and jimminy crickets, it is AH-MAY-ZING!  So modern and yet so not.  Definitely a country of contrasts.

I have made it my mission to take photographic evidence of these contrasts and any funny sightings around the place. 

So to ease myself back in to blogging land, here's just a few of the peculiar and giggle-worthy things I've seen since being here.

It tastes good... apparently


Say What?

Btw, that's not a willy in the left corner, it's a crazy doll's arm

The view from our serviced apartment - spot the passed out Singaporean

Seriously, people do this!  Ughhhh...

There's an awful lot to catch you up on that's happened over the last month but I won't bore you and cram it all in to one blog post.  Instead, I'll drag it out lol

Stay tuned for further shennanigans :)

So glad to be back
