Singapore, here we come!!!

The agony of long wait and uncertainties is finally over, Yes! we're moving to singapore.

At the end of last year, my hubby got a very interesting "offer" that was too hard to resist. We have talked about it a thousand times and asked a lot of opinions from our relatives and friends about the idea of migrating to SG before we agreed to accept the "offer" early this year. There are a lot of things to consider but just like most people say, "it's an opportunity of a lifetime" and most importantly, we both believe that opportunity "knocks" only once. It will only be the best for us and our kids we are an "international" family anyway :)). Our kids love it and they wanted to move immediately...hopefully, it will be soon! We will be looking for our new home soon and not to forget, schools for our kids. We're really looking forward to moving in SG. What's even nicer is, I can start working again (whew! after 8 long years of being stagnant :)) the kids are now bigger so I can start kicking my butt to work again hahaha, Hey, it's been a long time and I really wanted to work again -- think about "talent and expertise".

Our papers are now being processed and we just have to settle everything here in Holland first. Next time, you will see me blogging in SG!

I will be posting our pictures when we're finally there.

Summer Vacation at De Huttenheugte

We're just back from our vacation in one of the centerparcs (for a couple of days) and our kids just love every minute of it.

We have our own cottage and our kids have their own rooms --- which they really find exciting because they felt easily at home....in fact, it's like their 2nd home :). They have a lot of amenities and activities for the kids but still, they enjoyed swimming best and they just can't seem to get enough of it even if they have been swimming for such long hours :).

We did a lot of walking there (from our cottage going to the Market Dome)but it doesn't seem to bother them, the smile on their faces is enough for us to know how much fun they had. My hubby and I were glad that we did this for them because they do deserve to have a fun-filled vacation!

So, here are the pics...enjoy!

Almere Haven Speeltuin (Playground)

After doing our weekend grocery with the kids, we went to Almere Haven (which is not far from our place --- a couple of mins drive) yesterday to surprise our kids. We did not told them where we're going and they were pretty surprised :) They played there for a long time and the place is really nice for the kids (not to mention, it's free --- meaning, no entrance fee at all :)). There's a small booth there where you can buy all sorts of foods (from chips to ice cream) and you can even have a picnic there if you like coz there are also a couple of tables you can use. The weather was sunny yesterday ( it's been raining all week, yunno) so, it was perfect!

Here are some of the pics we took :
