It’s Chinese New Year!
Which means all of Singapore is beautifully decorated with lanterns and banners, the Cold Storage soundtrack is set to “CNY Greatest Hitz,” and the international school kids get to dress up for one day, looking like a bunch of little tow-headed Kung Fu Masters. Also: It’s Half Term and so time to bring our spoilt mini-expats on ANOTHER vacation. This time we’re hitting the slopes – which we were ridiculously excited about (The cold! The snow! The cold!) until we started to pack and we realized we don’t own jackets, or long pants, or even closed-toe shoes. And now we’re all, Couldn’t We Just Have Done A Staycation? Like At Snow City Maybe?
(Oh, and just for clarification, neither of us expects to see the other in a well. (Thank god, right? That would be a really bleak holiday.) We meant “see you in a week.” Frenzied shopping and packing doesn’t lend itself to careful texting.)
Share with someone you know who will be on that 6am flight to Tokyo (and if that’s you- we’ll see you there. Order us a mimosa.).
