My new friend

For those waiting for the reveal of my guest in town, well, I shan't keep you in suspense, and besides I'm not one who writes fancy, haha. She is none other than the lovely blogger from Easts Meets West Kitchen. It was really lovely to meet her and her little girls yesterday. We got along from the word 'go', and she was every bit as I expected her to be - friendly, warm, sincere. Her kids were totally loveable, and princess got along very well with them. She loves to play with little girls and they were like 2 life dolls to her. She just wouldn't put them down, carrying them whenever she could. She sometimes forgets that she too, is still a little child. I had to constantly remind her that. It didn't help that she was going for some exercise workout afterwards. I told her she'd be knackered! And you bet she was. She's still asleep at this time - 9.30am, would you believe it??!!! That is totally unheard of in princess land.

I have only got a short time for this post before I'm out the door again this morning.

The updates on our outing will probably be done in East Meets West Kitchen when she is more settled and finds the time to. I didn't bother to take photos of the things we consumed at the food court but she being the 'tourist' had every right to. Hahaha.

The good news is she finally visited Daiso but it was a short in and out visit as her girls were getting restless from the jetlag etc.

I have to say I really admire this lady. I think she is amazing to travel this long a distance with a pair of twins and basically just managing everything on her own.

Well, got to dash. Have a great weekend!

East Meets West Kitchen said...

Yes! I totally enjoyed my visit with you and princess. My kids now ask for you and your princess by name everyday!
You will be have a bit more patient with me on blogging. I haven't found the time yet, and right now I'm surfing in the dark so as not to wake up the jetlagged sleepyheads.

big boys oven - Ah yes, I was hoping she'd update her blog about it, but she is super busy since she only just arrived few days ago. She'd be here for quite a while. Till Jan.

east meets west kitchen - No worries. I can understand. I mean you are still having jetlag and lots of things to settle. It was wonderful the outing with you three and sure princess had loads of fun. Will have to meet again once you are more settled.

singairishgirl said...

singairishgirl said...

beachlover - Hahaha, of course she didn't come half way round the world to just meet me! She had some family celebration. Ai, nothing to it, 3yr old. Much easier to handle than 2 of them! Hahaha. Is Mishu only 3?? She looks big.

Little Corner of Mine said...

Oh, me so duh, I didn't know she is extending her stay til Jan. That's good because here is snowing and freezing cold!

Oh wow, if BBOven drive down to meet you gals, I so wanna see pictures!!!

singairishgirl said...

little corner of mine - You're not 'duh'. She only made up her mind when she arrived here. She must be super busy with two kids to handle. No time to blog. I have only seen her once. And have not spoken to here since. We both are busy I guess. Maybe after Christmas it better for both of us.

Oh ya, I was blown away. I mean these guys are big timers. Wanna come and meet us??!! Woah!!!

Beau Lotus said...

Now that's good news about V extending her trip, I did say 5 days' too short and quite ridiculous for our dear ole Singapore :-)

And D, which food court did you bring her to?

singairishgirl said...

beau - I know! I thought it was so ridiculous to fly all that way for 5 days! Anyway, she managed convince her hubby to let them extend.

We went to Food Republic at Vivo.

So are you gonna meet us both when you come back? ;)

Big Boys Oven said...

singairishgirl said...
