Anyway, I just came back to Boise from a long-ass month and a half long vacation back home in Singapore. Everything's changed so much! When I left, everything was still under construction, or not demolished yet. Imagine when I took 14 to Orchard, turned the corner and WHOA. Everything's shiny and new.
And I didn't even go in!
I had an amazing time back home, though. I couldn't post about going back to Singapore, because if I did, then one of my objectives would've been ruined. Basically, I planned my trip back home in secret, with the blessings of my parents and brother. I wanted to surprise a whole lot of people (which I did). The first night I was back, it was my grandma's 82nd birthday celebration. None of my cousins including my grandparents knew I was coming back, so I surprised them all, heehee. Char's reaction was the funniest, "I am SHOCKED!" Hehehehe.
Later that week, it was Linus' 30th birthday celebration, and they didn't know I was gonna turn up. I did, secretly, with the help Dongli. It was funny, because it's difficult for me to hide behind Dongli... and I heard from within the restaurant, Linus saying, "Eh that girl behind Dongli look alot like Perlin." until I actually came out from hiding. Hahaha, so fun.
I tried to meet up with as many people as I could, but it wasn't easy. I did however catch up with an old friend of mine, Johnny. We bonded again over Manchester United, and I met a lot of members of the local Man Utd supporters club, called United for United
, and hanging out with them was a hoot. A lot like my gamer buddies from TF2 called [Zouk]
, they are more than just a group of people with a common interest, they are a FAMILY. Well, two more of my families now, anyway. ;)
I think almost everything else paled in comparison to that.
Saw the doctors (yay subsidised healthcare!) and stuff, but I'm not comfortable posting that here right now, so that'll have to wait.
Other than that, I'm doing GREAT, after a horrible flight and bad experience at SFO (no surprises there
). So ready to fly to Seattle to get my car too! Hehehe. :D
I know, long hiatus. I'm sorry!
