I've actually had to leave home a full HALF HOUR before class so I'd reach on time. Erm. Frickety frick frick!
Okay I'm just being nasty. I love the new campus. It's big, it's pleasant and actually feels like a university. Heh.
Anyhoo. Let me tell you about Singapore. Mira and I took a very short vacation off to Singapore for funsies. It was awesome. Who'd have thought that a country could be SO accessible?
After a very very s.l.o.w. train ride of 6 hours, we arrived in Singapore. A cab ride and a lot of oooing aaaahing about the different cellphone service providers that kept buzzing our phones with roaming services later, we arrived at our stay. A family friend of Mira's.
Next morning, armed with full backpacks and two maps, we were set to explore the country! It was neat fun going around and seeing the place. Everything clean and ordered as a pin.
We also had the fortune of meeting the lovely ladies from Knits from the Heart and My Free Time and we had such a wonderful time! Thanks Regg for the amazing surprise! We then made our way to the ultimate hang-out spot, Spotlight the yarn store, that was the highlight of our trip!
This must be what Heaven must be like =D
So basically, when we were not in this lovely place...we were cruising the city on the very efficient train system. We certainly did manage to get around most places and had a smashing time. I would love to go back and....er....camp out at Spotlight? Yeah pretty much.
We both made some wonderful purchases....whoop dee doo....totally worth the quid.
Here are some pictures that we managed to take:
An old post office converted to the rather grand Hotel. It sure is a beauty.
A Chinese temple that was simply magnificent.
Unfortunately we did not have a very good camera with us so our cell phones had to suffice and this is the best we got out of it. I've got a few more but I can't seem to upload it. But all in all, it was a great trip!
That's all for now. Happy knitting everyone!!
