January Updates

I haven't blogged for a while because we were in Manila for two weeks to attend a wedding & a short vacation for us as well, then last week as soon as we got back in Singapore we had guests.

The Wedding

The main reason we were in Manila was because we had to attend our friends' wedding. Lloyd was one of the groomsmen. The couple was Lloyd's former co-workers who are also now working here in Singapore.

It was a very beautiful wedding... so solemn and sweet. The couple got very emotional during the wedding ceremony - when the bride was walking and when the priest said that they are now husband & wife. I myself got a bit teary-eyed.

The Vacation

After the wedding, Lloyd and I had two more weeks to stay in Manila. We didn't rush things this time (like go out and meet friends & former co-workers), so our vacation felt a bit longer. During our previous trips back in Manila, we were always busy that at the end of the day we felt that our vacation was so short (even though it was 1-2 weeks). This time our vacation felt longer and more relaxed... no pressure.

We still went out with friends, of course. We even had a small reunion with our college blockmates because Rommel and Alina, our ka-barkada who now resides in the US, also was in Manila for a short vacation. By the way, Rommel was Lloyd's bestman during our wedding and Lloyd was Rommel's bestman during their wedding.

The Visitors

Last Monday we were back in Singapore, and Rommel's family (Rommel's parents and Alina) arrived in Singapore the same day, although they have to wait for us for 5 hours because their flight arrived earlier than ours. I think (actually I hope) they enjoyed the wait since they were able to tour Changi Airport's different terminals.

They were here for five days but actually felt like three days only because we all arrived in the evening, then their flight back to Manila was early Friday morning. We all felt it was bitin, but it's ok. Plus Lloyd was back to work Wednesday last week (Tuesday was still a holiday here... Chinese New year. Most malls were actually closed that day!), so less time together.

We still enjoyed their short stay with us... and the not-so-many food trips we had. :) BUT... I think the Chili Crab made their whole trip worthwhile... hahaha!

The Survey

Not related to our vacation, but this post got delayed because of my vacation, so I'll include it here. hehehe :D

I just checked the result of the survey/poll I posted. First and foremost thanks to all who answered my poll. A lot of people opted Janis' Food Trip. But I just realized I don't want to put my name to the blog title... hihihi... :D So... how about The Foodie's Food Trip? By the way, I chose the word foodie because it means a person with a keen interest in food and cookery (from the Free Online Dictionary).

What do you think? :)

The Now

Today's Monday... Lloyd's at work... and I'm home alone again. Everything's back to normal. January was busy busy busy... but it was fun. :D
