| Singapore, etc.
|I have come back well-rested and recharged. Holidays are a godsend. Everyone should have it, every now and then, if they can. Four days in a different country is just enough (for now) to forget about work and be able to go back to it after.
I bought new babies: this one and this one. I bought new clothes, new shoes, new CDs, new DVDs, new
I was so happy at HMV! I bought the CDs that I wanted but could not find here like:
*Testimony : Vol. 1 Life and Relationships, India Arie
*Fisherman's Woman, Emiliana Torrini
*Let's Get Out Of This Country and Biggest Bluest Hi-Fi, Camera Obscura
*Speak For Yourself, Imogen Heap
*29, Cold Roses and Jacksonville City Nights, Ryan Adams
*The Life Pursuit, Belle and Sebastian
*Years Of Meteors, Laura Veirs
*Pink Moon, Nick Drake
*Brushfire Fairytales, Jack Johnson
*Woman King, Iron And Wine
*In The Reins, Calexico & Iron And Wine
Happy happy! Joy joy!
But the highlight of my entire trip was not the shopping or the food (although the food was amazing! nydc cheesecake, I love you!).
The highlight of my trip was this:
Leeyaj is currently studying in Singapore and Eileen is working there. Den is also visiting from Australia and is staying with her best friend, Erika, who is also working there.
I haven't seen these three people (I only met Erika last weekend) in more than two years and it was just so great to see them and talk to them and catch up with everyone's lives. We laughed, talked, ate, drank (at that "expat's place" *wink
wink*) and poured our hearts out. It's just so great to see old friends again!
Remember the guy I was talking about? You know, the gorgeous guy? I thought I wasn't gonna see him anymore coz he already came back to the store last Saturday and I wasn't there! My staff, however, took a picture of him but I wanted more, of course. I wanted to see him in person!
And you know what? God heard me.
He came back to the store yesterday!
Only to tell me some bad news, yesterday was his last day and he's flying back to Saudi today. :(
But I like to think that he came back to the store on his last day to see me. Because right before he left, he asked for my email address so he could keep in touch with me.
I was in heaven.
The next time I'll see him will be in twelve months, when he comes back here next July for his annual holiday.
But that's still so far away!
At least we'll have Gmail.
