5Jan 2019 – And Thanks for 2018
Tue: byebye 2018, welcome 2019. Wishing each&everyone 12months of good health, 52weeks of fun, 365days of prosperity, 8,760hrs of joy, 525,600minutes of good luck and 3,1536,000seconds of peace. Reading thru’ HC of 2018 Season Greetings, really like this hand-painted card from Inger/Sweden. Picking up some sale items@Parkway and a light snack of soft-shell crabs was delicious but something to be said about the service in this location!
Wed: now that the circle of life in this whole wide world🌏is in sync into 2019, let’s all do our best to live mindfully in harmony&peace with each other where ever we may be. Tkx to Adrian&Seb for lunch co and to check out the latest updates with the constructions of the TEL MRT line@the show-room, EDC 2023. Looking good, especially for one of the Marine Terrace station exit just around the corner from block 46, and once above that exit, will take less than 1min to get to my 4-walls.
Thu: TGIF – enjoying the 1st 2019 Fri, admiring posters@Bedok-Interchange – no complains where SIN’s public transportation is concerned. With my senior citizen ticket, 0.88c is the most to pay for a single ride, compared to Norway where a single ride is S$5-6!! And in London it is free for local seniors.
Bedok today while waiting for my free shuttle to IKEA.
Glad that this table was on sale and that Inessa managed to get all the heavy pieces up to her place and got it set up. Have seen this item for the past years and thought it to be one of the most practical dinning tables for small apt. And today she got it for under S$200 at the sale price+members’ discount, pix credits to her.
Fri: another interesting ride with buses 16, 30&78+MRT EW-NE lines to the industrial area (quite a view from the 4th floor of 21PandanAve) to return an item (ideal size hand-held mini vacuum, but unfortunately it did not work) bought online.
From East-West-FarrerPk: started 0910hrs arr@FarrerPk 1245hrs with 6transfers and getting item returned S$1.76. Sending it with a delivery with cost S$20-30 and since I have the time, made the trip into an adventure. OH East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet – Kipling
Tkx to Les&Ivy for lunch@Bar.B.QTonight. Safe journeys back to NYC to Kat&family who will be flying off after the weekend.
Eating with Les&Ivy, there is always more than enough food to last for another meal. Protein overdosed – so much food left over and nothing went to waste when one can doggie-bag!
Les’s new clinic@FarrerPk Hospital to be completed by 1Apr. Like the high ceilings, but most of it will be closed soon, except the waiting area.
An uncomfortable stroll down SIN river to catch with dinner appointment. Breeze was mis-leading, feeling hot, humid and muggy. Had a quick look at these Bicentennial exhibits on either side of the river.
One more scrumptious seafood meal@Jumbo with Clem&Vincent before Larry has to head off back to the US after the weekend too. Safe journeys to all travelling.
With touristy ClarkeQuay in the background ending this long day with one refreshing dessert/cocktail Lychee Martini@ParkRoyal On Pickering hit the spot.
A week of non-stop on the go and this will be the last of a 14+hrs on-the-go-day or may not survive to see another day, not to mention another year! Feeling no pain in the shower and hitting the sack just after midnight. Tomorrow is another day and will need the weekend to recover.
Sat: Happy 70Bday to Gerald, one of my first boyfriends! Happy Bday to Leonard, my computer guru. Too tired to think today!!!
