Happenings over the past three months












I can't believe how I've neglected my blog ever since I started uploading photos onto Facebook. Its just putting up pictures onto Facebook is such a breeze and takes so little time compared to uploading them onto a blog. Nevertheless, there is still that extra expressiveness here that I value, compared to sharing our experiences through photos on FB.  

So here is my attempt to cram in updates and happenings over the past three months into one post. I shall only include pictures of the more significant events and trips we made during the past 12 weeks.

Some of the milestones we came across include how Nya started school at Children's House Montessori School, our trip to California and San Diego where we got to visit Disneyland, Seaworld, Legoland, the San Diego Zoo and Knotts Berry Farm. We also visited Las Vegas, Seattle, Oregon, Salt Lake City, Twin Falls and Yellowstone Park to name a few.  Here are some of the pictures taken since the last time I posted. Hopefully it won't take me that long to share an update again =)

So proud of Nyx's iniative to help out with the housework


I cannot agree more about how kids pick up behavioral attributes from parents so quickly.  Just yesterday Nyx quietly put away all the folded laundry that was left downstairs into all the appropriate rooms and cupboards upstairs without my knowledge.  She only came to tell me that she had done it when her chore was complete.  Of course I went to double check, haha! And I was so pleased that she actually did an excellent job.  Thank you baby girl. Now I wonder when Nya will start helping out voluntarily too..... =) 

Nyx also makes her breakfast sometimes and will help me feed her little sis when she sees that I'm busy.

Summer holidays are here






This week Nyx doesn't have to go to school as the school is closed for the beginning of Summer break.  Although it means we don't have to wake up as early, I actually feel more worn out having to entertain, educate and care for two hyperactive balls of energy 24/7.  Today we went to the local animal shelter in town again to visit the residents and also popped by Legacy Park for some R & R.

Settling down in Idaho

My new car, a Chrysler Town and Country







Since arriving in Mountainhome, Idaho since Sunday we've managed to settle a few things such as getting a car, viewing our new house which we will move into by this Saturday, buying furniture and appliances, opening up bank accounts and getting our military IDs.   The weather here is definitely much colder than Singapore but its nothing new to the kids who went through this sort of weather in France so they're adapting very well.

Back in the Land of Freedom


9 years ago Guojun and I lived in America for 2 years just after we got married, and now nearly a decade later we're back again except this time we're here as a party of 4 instead of just the two of us.  We flew here on the 6th of March and arrived in LA, staying for a night before reaching Idaho yesterday. The weather here is definitely much colder than Singapore but I'm glad the kids adjusted to it easily as its about the same sort of weather we got in France.  

We're now staying in the TLF (Temporary Living Facilty) before moving to our new home by the end of the week. Here are some pictures taken since we arrived.

P.S. To all our family and friends back home, we miss you!!!!!!

Preparing for our next big move.


Although we've been back in Singapore for less than 9 months, it feels like a long time as we've filled our days here with memorable moments and fun-filled activities with our friends and families.  In a short while we will be setting up our new home in America and I'm reviving my blog once again so that I may share our family's experiences and day to day life with people who care about us and want to keep in touch.  

To a brand new adventure and a happy new year! Huat ah! =)

Resurfacing again after 3 months


I feel terrible going MIA on my blog for so long. But its so easy to upload multiple pictures on Facebook in so little time and I have not been able to figure out why I am unable to upload photos onto my blog.......  Somehow after fiddling around with my internet settings, I am now once again able to share pictures with everyone on my blog! Oh Joy! So yes, this shall mark my return to blogging yet again =)
