About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Final Singapore post - Holiday Post #8 - Singapore Post #8 + a Great Giveaway for you to check out


Well, we have finally reached the end of the Singapore leg of our trip.  We were only there three days and four nights but boy, did we pack a lot in.

On the last day we went on a bus tour of some of the cultural areas of Singapore - Little India, Chinatown, etc.  Very interesting.











Then, the last night we had the Gala Ball.  Here are TraderVic and I in all our finery!


A new friend we met - Nikki.


Each table was beautifully decorated.


A Chinese dragon came to visit:


... and there were go go girls!


A good time was had by all, but sadly all good things must end.

So, that's it for Singapore - next stop Lake Como in Italy.  Oh George (Clooney) - I am coming!

hugs,



Ooops, nearly forgot about the Giveaway, France from A sympony of Stitches is having a great giveaway of a Prairie Schooler Christmas design (plus some other goodies).  You can enter in the giveaway here.
