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.

"Three little maids from school are we...." - Holiday Post #7 - Singapore Post #7

 This song from The Mikado was going through my head when I and a couple of friends posed for this photo with our fans.




We had all gone out for dinner at Boat Quay where we met up with some friends who are currently living in Singapore.





We had a very yummy dinner of very fresh seafood and other delicacies.





... and from our table we had a view of the river and the light show.





On the walk back to our hotel, we visited another great hotel of Singapore, The Fullarton and then Merlion Park (the Merlion is the symbol of Singapore).














Don't you love this painting?





Out hotel was ubiquitous - you could see it from almost anywhere!

Singapore is almost on the equator - so even at night is is quite warm.  So, we each bought an ice cream sandwich from a street vendor for a $1.  He just cut a slice off a huge block of ice cream and placed it between two wafers and voila!  This one is choc mint!


I hope that you enjoyed these photos - my next holiday post will still be in Singapore (boy, did we pack a lot into 3 days!).

hugs,
