Finally!!!

After a long wait I have finally become an “auntie” again. Wiiiiiiieeeeeeeee!!!!

One of my best friends back home gave this morning birth to a healthy baby – and I couldn’t be happier for her. Or thrilled. Or excited.

Congratulations Helle – I cannot wait to meet the little one when I am home at Xmas!!!

Lots of love to the both of you.

Sorry for not updating the entire weekend but have been living in a “wedding bubble” since Friday.

TomTamara got married on Saturday and it has been a hectic weekend starting off with me meeting some friends for drinks on Thursday evening. Not the cleverest of ideas as we had the hen party for Princess T on the Friday but thankfully it was not until the afternoon so managed to get myself atleast a couple of hours sleep.

Friday was a mix of laughter, champagne, willy-straws, more champagne, pampering, happy tears, even more champagne and some nibbles. And this was just in the afternoon. In the evening the hens (without Princess T as she had a family dinner) went out for dinner at Graze, joined by one poor guy…but he held himself pretty good in the company of very chatty women. Impressive. After dinner we continued down to CQ and China One for more partying. Some of us were still going at 5 am. Another not so clever decision.

Saturday was wedding day. Me and Di, one of the other bridesmaids, went to the location in early afternoon to check that all was in order. Being Singapore of course it wasn’t. And it the middle of the set-up someone decided to open up the heavens and it started pouring down. When you have an outdoor location that is not exactly what you want. Thankfully it stopped in time for when the guests and the bridal couple arrived so all was well and good in the end.

The bride looked absolutely gorgeous. The groom very handsome. And the ceremony, it was just heartwrenching. Not a dry eye in the house. As it should be at weddings. As I, apart from being one of the bridesmaids, also was the official photographer that was a tough moment…trying to focus and take good pictures with tears in your eyes is not the easiest thing. They did turn out good though.  The dinner, the dancing and the afterparty was great but after having been out two nights in a row I gave up at 1 am. At that point my brain had done a complete shut-down and I could no longer feel my feet so the only thing I wanted was my bed, and a good nights sleep. Which I did get. Bliss.

On Sunday I met up with Ellen for brunch at Pump Room. The weather was perfect for sitting outside and it was just what I needed to get my energy back. Brunch was followed by an 1.5hrs balinese massage. Talking about feeling like you’ve been to heaven and back afterwards.

It has truly been a weekend filled with love, happiness and meeting of new wonderful people and I feel so blessed to have friends like T&T in my life – and it was such an honor to be there, sharing their special day!

Am in a much better mood today. Was to be honest more annoyed than mad last night but that is now old history. Today we are focusing on it being Friday and the day of the week that I think I like the most. Can it get any better than knowing you have two days of freedom ahead of you? Not in my book.

Hope you all have something nice planned for your weekend. Me, I have a housewarming, a location scouting and then I will try to fit in some “me-time” with a massage and perhaps a facial. Sweet!

Oh my, some days you sure feel that you are not 20 anymore. Yesterday was one of those. Was at the opening party for Burberry at Ion Orchard on Tuesday night. And what a party it was. People lining the red carpet (which was actually beige….) to spot celebrities…and there we came walking, was a very surreal feeling. But fun.

Once inside it was packed with people and the bubbly was flowing freely. The Creative Director of Burberry, Christopher Bailey, was there and the poor thing had to have his pics taken with almost everyone. Yes, us incluced. Of course. But guess it’s part of his job when going to events like this.

Afterwards me and Fx was to have dinner at Hyatt with one of his former colleagues and friends but we ended up getting a big part of the gang coming with us so instead of a quiet dinner it became a much bigger one. Kudos to the staff at Hyatt for arranging so we could have one of the private diningrooms. Lots of food, lots of drinks, lots of laughter. Brilliant night. Late night. And oh, did I suffer for it yesterday. But worth it. And am feeling a lot fresher today. There’s not much that a good nights sleep cannot fix. Now we have to gear up for the weekend, even though it will be a rather mundane one.

Back on track

Went to see my doctor earlier this week for a check-up on the foot and talk about me getting a huge surprise. The new x-rays showed that the fracture had healed as it should and that he was so pleased that he gave me the all-clear. No more physio. No more flats.

I am finally back to being me.

Wearing heels.

And never did I imagine that the problem of having to decide what shoes to wear would turn out to be such a pleasant one.

Life is full of surprises.

Me love!!
