Meet The Original Likkle Girl
Greetings from Singapore! I'm home on the sunny isle for an under-the-radar visit. Yes, "visit" because I wouldn't call it a "holiday" when family is involved. It's "stealth-y" because I have too many pals here - the three that I've told so far have been sworn to secrecy. I would love to catch up with everyone but I'll only call the rest (and watch my diary fill up with appointments like I'm the hottest new model in town) when I feel like I've spent enough time with my dad and mom. I've learnt from my last trip...my folks didn't see very much of me and I was pretty sure my dad was on the verge of bringing back the good old curfew.
It feels like nothing has changed but it's only my first day back and all that I've seen so far are the familiar sights along the expressway home from the airport last night. (Oh, we flew on Singapore Airlines' new A380 and it was what they said it would be - so much more room, even in the cattle class. And there isn't a marked difference in fare. It is indeed "a great way to fly", to borrow from their old advertising jingle.)
My taste in fashion-y things hasn't changed very much either, looking at the stack of old photos that my mom has pulled out from the "archives". The red clogs! The haircut is similar to the current one and I'd love a grown-up version of that smocked printed dress.
I suspect there will be more reminiscing-type posts to follow as I open up packed-away boxes and rediscover things that I've forgotten. Can't wait.
