Don't get me wrong, there's nothing wrong with the place. It's just that I've been so many times I've got Singapore oozing out of my ears - I guess one of the 'perks' of having a Singaporean parent.
We pretty much had the usual Eid this year:
Tired faces (mostly mine)
Annoyed faces (mostly Yummy Hubby's - bless him though, he stuck to his in-laws pretty well overall)
Large(r) cousins (shhh! Don't tell them I said so, but then again they're probably saying the same thing about me...)
Screaming (mostly Mum)
Blank faces (mostly Dad's)
Empty pockets, eheheh.
You can probably tell that we had a lot of fun, haha!
Anyways, we managed to extract ourselves and travelled home a little earlier this year, and guess what? I managed to get some sewing done. Can you believe that?
What I did was I finished up the box of patchwork squares from earlier. Well, most of them anyway. I basically went on a chain-piecing marathon. Such soothing, brainless sewing - don't you just love that? I've got everything sewn into rows, now I just need to sew the rows together. It looks like it's going to be a small top - lap size. When I first started this project I was thinking of something bigger. I may have to add more squares later... we'll find out soon, I suppose.
And now for the pictures:

I was going to sign out now, but thought I couldn't without showing you some of the pretty flowers I met in Singapore. We always try to visit at least one touristy place with each visit and this time we went to Gardens by the Bay. They have 2 covered (and air-conditioned! aaahhh) conservatories, the first is about flowers and the second is basically about the rainforest. I wasn't so impressed with the rainforest because, let's face it, you can get the real thing over here (try FRIM) so it felt a wee bit on the man-made side. The flower conservatory on the other hand was just my cup of tea. I hope you enjoy the photos, have a happy week ahead!
