Fairwell 2005

Well the end of the year is nigh, we are still trying to work out what we will do tonight. Maybe head down to the river and one of the many celebration activities or enjoy the light show from the height & comfort of our apartment. I think comfort will win this year, its damn humid now the winds gone and the storm clouds are slowly rolling in.

Boxing Day, Well Unboxing Day for us!

We spend the day finishing off the unpacking and cleaning, oh what fun! The apartment is looking more like a home then a disaster zone. Jason could no longer avoid the cleaning and unpacking of the kitchen stuff! Only a few things were broken in the move, two glasses, both office chairs and Marika’s computer. The computer is working again with the help of a new video card, however it’s still limping and Jason is stumped as to why! Maybe it’s just old in IT years.

Merry Christmas


Today we had a lovely turkey lunch. We had planned on heading down to Orchard Rd for the afternoon celebration, however our weighted down bellies wouldn’t let us move out of the air-conditioned comfort of the apartment.

The Move

We moved out of the serviced apartment today, it’s such a nice feeling to be moving into your own space. Still lots of cleaning and unpacking to do. We set up the Christmas tree today and checked that our internet access, cable TV is working. The phone should be alive next week, our phone is through the cable internet connect. We’ll have to get a phone card for cheaper international calls.

Our Singapore Home

We took possession of our new rented apartment this morning, and our furniture etc from Australia was delivered after lunch. Jason spent the day pottering around unpacking boxes trying to find hiding places for everything making sure to avoid boxes that appeared to have kitchen stuff in it!

We’ve been here one & half weeks, Marika is working and Jason’s walking. Marika life is pretty normal with work, junior is developing well. Jason is walking and walking and walking all over trying to find a nice area to live in. We have narrowed it down to a few areas near the Shopping district (Orchard Rd) and the CBD, and close to the MRT (Trains) stations.
