I am so behind with my posts these days but I still would like to register all my knitting adventures here in my blog. And I guess, you may as well enjoy them. I am trying to update as much as I can in a chronological sequence, so be prepared to see multiple posts this week!
By the end of summer I had a quick get away to Singapore. My family and I have lived there as expats for about 4 years and the experience has left solid memories for my boys. So it wasn't a surprise to me when my elder son told me his wish to go back for a few days. And I certainly had no problems with that as I also enjoy the country.
I myself have lived in many cities and once back I like to return to all my favorite spots. See what has been changed or still contemplate the old corners. It's true, I have been back to Singapore at least once a year since I left. I would fly back even more if I could!
One of my priorities is Orchard Road and the vicinity. I don't really buy a lot ( I think) but I like to wonder around. And then comes the Kinokuniya bookstore to check on the knitting books ( It was my routine stop to go twice a week) and certainly all the yarn shops.
I was able to meet up with Opportunityknits and we had the best time together chatting about knitting and checking yarn shops. Time never seen enough for us to catch up with our favorite subject about knitting. Unfortunately, I was too entertained and didn't take any photo of the yarn shops. I should certainly capture the moments next time.
However, I have these photos below to share. This window display caught our attention at Rafles city,
Below, one more view with silver theme.
I was so behaved while I was in US but somehow I lost control and came back with all this cotton yarns. By coincidence, I always have my folding bag on my trips for emergency purposes like this. Half of the lot I got it few hours before I had to catch the flight. I went back to the Golden Dragon store on the last day to get extras of the red yarn ( bottom pack). I had a project in mind bt I felt that I didn't had enough yardage. Anyway, since it was my last chance I ended up grabbing 3 more packs of yarn.
Changing subject to a quick food event. For days during the trip, I was looking for this particular fruit that I so love it's sweet and sour taste! It's named Duku , cultivated in Malaysia and Thailand. I found it on the way back from Golden Dragon. I was so excited but could only buy a small cluster since I would only have a few hours to consume it. Oh it was so yummy!! :)
Moreover, I had more joy.....On the next day at home, I had another big surprise by mail. Joy from Joyousknits and Siow Chin from Little Purl of Orient sent these,
And to finish today, I need to register here that I was nominated as "Rockin Girl" ( couldn't find how to paste the logo)by Mel from Wild and Wolly. Needless to say, I was very happy to be chosen. And to know that there are knitters out there that enjoy my posts!
