Overwhelmed

13 Mar 2008 – Singapore

The past couple of days have been unusually wet and perfect weather for snoozing. Usually I am an organised person but lately this desk has been submerged with stuff. It has been overwhelming with the talks and presentations but the experiences have been positively rewarding. Met interesting people who could relate about our attitudes towards nature, others and themselves.

Need to make a list of reminders for the important documents to take with me for my journey. Clothes and other things can easily be replaced, documents & deeds are not. Keep telling myself that it is not the first time I will be away for an extended period of time but it does not seem to get easier, even with experience & age!

Thank you to Ireland’s Ambassador Richard O’Brien and his wife Bernadette for hosting the St Patrick’s Day reception at the Grand Hyatt Hotel last night. Delighted to catch up with the Irish community and members of the Irish Graduates Association of Singapore IGAS, where I was the Hon Secretary from 1999-2003. Will it be too ambitious to try squeezing the Sunday’s parade into my schedule? So much to do and so little time!
