Back to the Capital of Reliability

IT's True- Singapore Makes you weak!!!
I'm spoilt by the fact that buses are fast and frequent, train lines run EVERY day regardless of X'mas or not, and Cabs are too cheap to refuse flagging down...London on the other hand is the TOTAL opposite!
And though I LOVE coming back to the cold and dressing up and layering etc.. I hate putting socks on all the time! I also can't stand the random snivelly moments and you have to ask someone "Ya got any tissue on you?"... Oh sweet Bitter coldness is good once a year !

So I leave back to Singapore tonight and head to Heathrow rather early, along with My sister who will be flying back to Toulouse as well. YEs I will miss her an awful lot and once again back to square one of leading our own lives- mine in claustrophobic, nosey, prying Singapore and Rachel back to ' I don't read newspapers, watch TV or use the Internet or know whats going on in the World', France. The latter sounding fantastically appealing to me!

Last night I went out to Lilian's house and my sister joined me not too long after. We sat, talked, had hysterical laughs over memories and watching old videos video recorded by her Dad during her b'day party back in 1991-16years ago- ARghhhhhhhhhhhhh!
What was weird was hearing our VERY British accents from when we were kids, now my accent is a MishMash of diffferent sounds , exactly what i'd say represents singapore- a Mish Mash of People, Races and what not! I had Dejavu moments when i was offered a Rabbit sweet and when ME, Rachel, Lillian and Eileen(Lilians Sis) took a photo by the couch. YEars earlier we took an exact one in our pajamas at the exact same place! I remember myself to be tubby , red in the cheeks and looking somewhat like an Eskimo!

We had a lovely dinner before me and Rachie made our way back to our Grandad's around midnight... I'm so glad i managed to find Lilian on Facebook and rekindle our longlost freindship after 13 years after moving away from UK. It really feels like we never missed a day out in each others lives.Amazing I'd say!

Oh ... time for RANDOM MOMENT of THE DAY:
My sister Opens up the DAILY EXPRESS , AND on a fashion page, there is this HUGE picture of ME plonk on the middle page spread!!! HOW Weird is that?!?!?!??! I come to UK and find a picture ofmyself in the newspaper the day I leave. My family was in hysterics and were a bit freaked out...hmm gotta go check up on that one and how itgot there?!?! a Stock photoshoot picture? hmmmm..
So I've got a killer back ache so i wil load more pics of the trip when i'm back tomorrow and load my pictures from JANUARY issue of Arena Magazine..I love them ...!!!

Later Fools
