Yuppiiiee time!!

Its been almost 6 mths since I last visited a new country/city.....and now was literally itching to take off....

And finally now we'r off to singapore for 3 days this weekend....yupppiieeee....And yes its gonna be a nice "family touristy outing".....coz ma and pa are coming along too...hubby dear is playing an award winning performance of the "damad trying to impress in-laws" role!;-)...(kissiess and huggiess to u baby!)

Looking forward to the zoo( havent been in a zoo since nappy days!) and waterpark, the shopping at orchard road, the yummmmy food and yes catching up with few friends as well....

Statutory warning :-Hubby Dear pls keep a close eye on all the excitment I might actually end up inside the cage and you might end up holding hands and taking a romantic walk with a koala bear!

So all u zoo out...the crazy gal is gonna be on the loose soooonnn!!!

p.s:-I think I am already getting dreams of the trip now...I had a dinosaur dream last night and I think he bit me...!!

How about I am going to slide down the back of a brontosauras?And play pin the tail on the T-Rex?
Singapor?hmmm it is an awesome place for sure.Dont miss the lazer show,the underwater aquarium.There was a snow theme park which I think sucks and yummy Indian food

Woo this is strange...I check your blog everyday for updates and for the weirdest reason this blog post is visible to me only TODAY. I know no one will believe me but its so strange.

Anyways, I have been wanting ot go to Spore so much. It sure is a great place and have fun lady! Guess you have already left so hope you had a blast and managed to walk with your family!!!


At 5:55 AM, Blogger Prash said...

Singapore should be a nice place. I would love to visit there once I am in HOng kOng...that would be more easier to travel to S'pore.

I have friends there!!! So Fun !!!

Happy Long Weekend!!!

I wish good luck to Anand...impressing in-laws is not easy!!! But I am sure they would like him.

Oh btw, your hubby dear is always keeping a close eye on you...You just don't realise it, I think!!! Ask Anand, he will confirm what I just said.

You get insde that cage ...oh dear !!! Poor Zoo inhabitants...they have to stand you and your craziness!!!

How do you know that the dinosaur which came in your dream is a 'he' ?
