Appreciations for a farewell get together in good company including His Excellency Mr&Mrs Joe Hayes, Ambassador of Ireland and patron of the Irish Graduates Association of SIN (IGAS). Thank you Ciera&Steve for delicious Thai food. To the Brosnan family go raibh maith agat for crossing my path and
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields and,
Until we meet again…
Sun: met Lawrence&Mabel at the airport arriving from KCH. A very wet taxi ride to Les&Ivy, spending the rest of the day and evening indoors in this lovely cool wet weather. The heat and humidity have been rather oppressive the past few days the and rains are always refreshing in the tropics.
Mon: speedy recovery to Gel who has recently undergone a major surgery. Tea with Gel&Millie at Dome’s/Dempsey Hill where there is a huge fish in the pond. Thought it is an Arowana but then does Arowana grow that large? Tkx to CH for the info about this fish-arapaima/pirarucu/paiche/Arapaima gigas is a South American tropical, freshwater fish. It is one of the largest freshwater fish in the world.
Appreciations to Les&Ivy for a ‘small’ family get together dinner at Long Beach/Dempsey**** with Yasmine&Andrew, visiting from London and her first experience with a fan without blades 🙂
I think the most beautiful thing is that we’re not parting because there were problems. We’re parting because we’re celebrating each others’ growth – Kelly Rowland
