Our Beautiful World 105 ~ Countryside

This week at

The word is


I am a city girl, grew up in a city island and spent 13 years in United States, another big city Manhattan and now Las Vegas, countryside is a rare sight so whenever I see one, I'll catch it with my camera... this one is in California, on our way to Yosemite National Park.

Come share with us your part of the world at


Updates from Singapore

Thank you to all you lovely for caring and asking about my medical situation, I am so glad to tell you that it was a minor problem after doing the upper endoscopy, it was Acid Reflux that causes the muscle tension around my neck, change of diet patten and a little medication should solved the problem, whew..... 

And I am so glad that I am able to eat again, to be true with you, I was worrying about the worst and thinking that I might not be able to enjoy any food. Singapore is such a food heaven, DH's favorite is that every corner you are able to get cut fruits like that for as low as $3.

the hotel we stay is just 3 minutes walk from Marks and Spencer, my favorite store while I lived here in Singapore, my sweet friend Ros knew that and she always send something from UK for me knowing that we don't have M&S in United States, so I asked DH to take this picture just for you ROS!!!!
And you know I already stock up the cookies from M&S!

besides cookies from M&S, my other favorite place is cosmetic shop Etude House, it is a Korean brand and I just love it, our hotel is near to ION, the shopping mall, and Etude House has a store there with this sweet thing that I my camera can't miss it.

Orchard road is all dressed up in red and white as Singapore will be celebrating the big 50 next month

Clare is back for the SG 50 (Singapore being independence for 50 years) concert, Mr. Tan, her music composition teacher when she was 8 doesn't know she is coming back for Mahler Symphony concert, when Clare approached him, he couldn't recognize her and he was shocked when told that the little 8 year old girl in front of him is the same girl he taught 15 years ago. (Photo taken during rehearsal)

The concert last night was beautiful, this is the photo I took before it started.

at home, Papi is very clingy, I think he felt in-secured when I am gone and follow Dolce everywhere she goes..... awww.... sweet little boy

thanks for stopping by and once again, thank you so much for your prayers and thoughts!
