Last Monday, Abi and I left home in a cab darn early. We were heading to the airport because there was an appointment to keep. Before catching the first flight back to the
, my husband and I shared a large coffee. Hence, he slept all the way (grin). Although, I could not close my eyes for I was feeling a bit claustrophobic sitting on window seat and tad suspense. Lion City

. I enjoyed iced coffee with butter and kaya toast while he kopi c with nasi lemak (yummy). By the way, it was smooth entry for me without the white embarkation card and I thank God for that! Changi Airport

Although it is going through quite major changes, my life is actually affected just a little thus maybe requires minor adaptation only. However effective immediately, Abi and I can no longer drive around in the country by law because that privilege is tourist exclusive (sigh).
