Happy New Year everyone! A little late I admit but……there is a very very good reason for this.
I have moved.
Not just to a different state or apartment but to another country. Well it is nothing new for me, neither the country I have moved to nor the fact that I have moved my whole household for the umpteenth time. This is what we do. My husband is an engineer and we move to wherever his next project is located.
I am the planner, manager and organiser for everything a new move entails down to the nitty gritty details. Anyone who is a trailing spouse will know what I am talking about. It is both an exciting time and a stressful one.
Having an autoimmune illness doesn’t come in handy, yes I know the horror of having to eat out during the transition period was a nightmare. As all of you may know by now I manage my illness with mainly diet. I also had to be very mindful and remind myself to take the time to breathe when it got to crunch time. Happy to say that I have survived the whole process. Here I am. A little roughed up but still better than I could have imagined.
We have recently moved into a lovely new apartment in Singapore, a place which will be our home for the next 2 years.
Coming back to Singapore has been mostly sweet, being that this is my birthplace, it is a foodie’s paradise and I am a proud Singaporean. I am saying that after living almost 11 years overseas. Simply put, things get done with extreme efficiency here. Everything works…which of course makes life a lot easier and who doesn’t want that. Ok perhaps not everyone? But I shall drink it in huge gulps like fresh coconut water and say thank you very much.
2015 has been an eventful one for me. My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary, I started a blog, went through a tough and drawn out Candida die off (my body is still recovering from that ravaging awful experience) and moved a whole household to another country.
I know whatever 2016 brings it will be all good even the bad parts because that is how we learn in life isn’t it? So let’s embrace it with a big heart and gulp it down like fresh coconut water and say thank you very much!
