Guys, our New York number is up and running via our internet connection, so don’t be lame and not call because you can’t figure out how to call Singapore. Go ahead and call 845-790-5321, of course, we are 12 hours off EST, so don’t call in the middle of the day or anything. Apologies to Donald for calling at 6 am today, I forgot that it wasn’t 9 am in california.
Vince is so excited about school tomorrow, he’s having a hard time sleeping tonight. The meals are provided at school, get this, tomorrow he’s having honey cereal with milk for breakfast, chicken casserole and veggies for lunch and seasonal fruit and for afternoon tea, he’s having cream puffs!
We still have to get crap for the apartment, the landlord furnished the whole thing in white upholstery (including the dining room chairs!) and with two kids covered in peanut butter and chocolate, it isn’t going to stay white for long. So we went to IKEA to buy new slipcovers and all this other crap. I have to say that I love the idea of public transport, but moving with 2 kids without a car is really kind of a bummer. It’s like, all of a sudden you need to buy a toaster, rice cooker, rugs, laundry baskets, trash cans and how are you going to hold all that crap plus the 2 kids who hate shopping.
We live about 1 minute away from an MRT (subway) stop and at the MRT is this huge mall called Lot 1 and it has everything in it, a McDonalds, a grocery store, a nursery school (which Vince didn’t like because you couldn’t ride a school bus there, it’s that close), a post office, a library, for the kids: chinese lessons, english lessons, dance lessons, math lessons, music lessons, a movie theatre, a bookstore. One wonders why anyone has to go anywhere else. It’s pretty weird to think that everything one needs is within a one block radius, it’s still hard to carry the bag of rice home though.
