Mid Week Mid November

The last quarter of the year always seems to pass by in such a flash. Already it's mid November and I'm counting down till the grasshopper comes to down for Christmas.

Woke up early this morning to go for a walk with Ching, Jeanne and Matt. We
decided to go to Bukit Timah Hill and I realised that I've not been there since before Tibet! The climb up was ok, and the walk was fairly manageable until the last bit at the end. Had to take a shorter route out because my legs
were getting really tired. Nonetheless, it was a good walk.

Had a quick lunch then chatted with the grasshopper for a bit. Took a nap while he went out to run some errands, then chatted some more in the evening. Moments like this makes me really wish we were in the same country.

At this point, it seems more likely that I'll end up moving there than he coming here, but we're not in any rush so no plans for the time being. Tiger Airways cancelled their Singapore-Bangalore route, so now we need to figure out how we're going to see each other in 2011. No more impulsive trips!

I guess 2011 will be a year of planning and saving money and hopefully nore discipline. Crossing my fingers and toes that I will get a good appraisal and a good increment and bonus.

Well, going to try to sleep early tonight. 2 more days and it's the weekend! Happiness is a mid-week public holiday. Whee!

Monday Mojitos

Sometimes lunchtime drinks are all it takes to make the day a good day. Heehee.

Caught up with Li Min over lunch today and we chatted about martial arts, crappy bosses, lying colleagues and overseas spouses. It was a fun and much needed break. Plus, the food was good and the three mojitos put me in that happy, happy place.

Went for Muay Thai in the evening and had a good workout. I'm having a little bit of a buay-hiao-bai moment now, when I say I was the prettiest girl in the class. *grin* I think the grasshopper is a lucky boy. Heehee.

Had a quick dinner with Ching at some Japanese place and now I'm back home and showered and waiting for the grasshopper to come online. Quick chat with him before I go to bed.

Life is good. :)

I Wonder Why

It's 2am and I'm up again. Sigh. Went to bed at 11pm and thought I'd be able to get a good night's rest before attempting to go for class in the morning.

Shall try to go back to sleep now. But this waking up in the middle of the night sucks.

Festival Of Lights

I'm finally in Bangalore, and descending into the airport this time round is probably the second most amazing experiences I've had on a plane so far. The first one being the time we flew past the peak of Mt Everest while heading to Bhutan.

The pilot made an announcement that we were going to descend, and mentioned that if we looked out the left window, we'd be able to see the fireworks and celebrations. So I turned my head and looked out the window, and I saw an entire city that was lit up and shimmering. Every where you looked, there were crackers being lit, exploding in the sky and really giving meaning to the Festival of Lights.

The plane finally landed and I had a huge grin on my face. I cleared immigration quickly and got into the grasshopper's waiting car. We drove back home and lit some crackers downstairs too. Whee!

I think I'm going to wake the grasshopper up and get him to go buy some more crackers so we can burn them downstairs. Happy Diwali!
