Finally back home from a seemingly long trip in Adelaide. Felt like I’d been there for weeks. Talk about exaggeration.
Two great things happened once I got home. For one, my Roscoe boots finally came in and they’re absolutely stunning to say the very least. Second, was the reveal of my cousin Robyn’s gorgeous new baby girl, Isla.
On top of that, I also met the sweetest elderly couple on board on my flight back from Adelaide. They’re names are Glen and Coleen Williams. They live in Adelaide, and come by Singapore once every 10 years. This time, they’ll be staying in Singapore for 4 nights after which, heading on a cruise across Asia. The reason for their trip was because Glen recently fought off cancer. For good. Was pretty amazing because I know cancer’s a shameless bitch and some of my relatives died because of it. Was nice to hear a success story.
I’ve also completed my itinerary for Phuket. Very excited for elephant trekking and Phi Phi Islands. Seems like beach holidays are my thing. I hate it when people refer to me as an island girl, but I’m coming to terms with it. Don’t think I could see myself any other way, on any other holidays. I mean, I love the city. I enjoy mountainous regions. I enjoy coffee by the eiffel. That sort of thing. But I find I’ve always been drawn to images of places with beach front villas and run down hut-like bars. Even the ocean. Which is ironic because I’m actually pretty fucking scared of the ocean. Just the thought of being stranded in that endless blue is enough to send my imagination off in a frenzy. One set back for the trip though (which I just found out) is that its the rainy season. I have no fucking idea how I managed to think that it would probably be sunny as fuck in July, but basically, I think I’m screwed. Nevertheless, I’m still putting a big thumbs up for elephant trekking and Phi Phi.
Gotta make some good ass lemonade with these damn lemons I’ve been handed.
Anyway, this has gone on long enough. Retiring to the bed now. Much needed sleep. X
