Weekend That Was (20-21.07.13)

July 22, 2013 | Weekend that was

Monday, Monday, Monday.. always comes so quickly doesn’t it?! No complaints here though, we had such a great weekend!

How was yours?

20.07.13

Dave and I went on our favourite late afternoon hike on Friday (through Hort Park and up to Henderson Waves Bridge), the weather was beautiful so it made for a really nice walk.

Then on Saturday we went to check out the new indoor marketplace PasarBella which was fun! Followed by a wander around the Arab Quarter, and dinner and drinks at Dempsey Hill (I fell head over heels for the wooden bear above, who was situated at the front of a really cool bar). Sunday was much more lazy, and I didn’t take any photos.. we ended up at a shopping mall, wandering the stores with thousands of other people ;)

I hope your weekend was just as good! x

weekend that was!Happy Monday friends! How was your weekend?

I was sick the whole weekend with a head cold (boooo!), so it was all fairly relaxed around here. We did go to a surprise baby shower for a friend (although I didn’t stay long to minimise the risk of giving my cold to anyone else!), went to the movies, ducked in to check out new-to-me homewares store CB2, and stopped for a coffee and slice of cake.. which weirdly came out in a cage. The cake was yummy, but clearly I’m not cool enough to understand the cage thing  :-/

 

Workspace Wednesday 87.

June 19, 2013 | Workspace Wednesday

I’m not sure whether this is making news anywhere else, but over the past few days Singapore (and a few of the other countries close by) have been shrouded in a thick, hazy, smoke due to forest fires burning in Indonesia.

The thickness of the smoke seems to vary a bit throughout the day, but it makes it hard to be outside for too long. I can only imagine what effect this must be having on asthmatics and people with allergies!

Anyway I had to go to the shopping centre down the road this morning, and snapped the slightly hazy photos on the left from the shopping centre roof at about 10am, thinking – OK it’s not too bad today, maybe it’s clearing! But alas, once I’d finished shopping at 12 I went back out and snapped the photo on the right. Only 2 hours difference. Looks like it’ll be with us for a while yet.

Weekend that was (01-02.06.13)

June 3, 2013 | Weekend that was

Wow I can’t believe we just rolled over into June. Where did the first half of the year go, really? Does anyone else feel like this year is just flying by??

I’d thought I’d do a “weekend that was” post this morning, but when I went back and looked at the photos on my phone from the weekend, realised we didn’t actually get up to much! Weekends like that are great though.. so relaxed!

So I’m going to post a couple of photos from earlier last week too. Hope you don’t mind :)

So here’s how our fairly relaxed week went down: We ended up going out for dinner and ice cream earlier in the week to mark the 2 year anniversary of our official marriage (we signed papers a good year before having a ceremony), Friday was an incredible blue-sky day, so I took a picture of it from my office window. Not long after I took this though, the storm clouds rolled in haha.

Friday night was spent at a Birthday gathering for some friends (we had a beautiful view of Marina Bay Sands laser show as you can see in the photo!), and the last photo is a ‘selfie’ we took in the back of the cab on the way home. We also went to the movies, Skyped with some of our family and friends, and mooched around on the couch.

Ah, bliss!

Tell me, how was your weekend? x
