A short break....

We've been packing and packing and packing. Gosh I can't believe the amount of stuffs that we've accumulated in such a short amount of time!

Exams are also just over....RG has been very busy grading papers.

Our air tickets are all booked and..........we'll be back in Singapore on the 24 June 2010! Looking forward to catching up with our families and friends. And we are also very excited about seeing our renovated flat for the first time and be living there!

We have not renewed our lease for the current house in Marion 'cos my landlord was not agreeable to a shorter lease term. So we'll be homeless the next time we return to the states =( Will need to start looking for another place to rent when we return late August. Hopefully, we'll be able to find a place fast....if not, we might have to stay in some cheap motels again for awhile....heh heh heh

All our stuffs will have to be moved to some nearby storage facilities. There are plenty of such storage facilities in the states and at quite affordable prices (relative to Singapore prices). There are also storage options big enough to accommodate vehicles.

My neigbhor is obviously upset that we are leaving.....but we have promised to stay in touch. She has offered to help us keep a lookout for good rentals around the area...'cos she'd really like for us to be nearby.

We are a little sad too 'cos we have had a very pleasant stay in the house. We'll also miss all the little squirrels, chipmunks, rabbits and birds that we've been feeding all this while. Oh, did I mention that the squirrels would be waiting on the deck for me in the morning to put out their breakfast goodies?! Awwww.....I will really miss those cute little rascals!

But hey, there'll be new fun experiences awaiting at our next place....so we are looking forward to the change. And hopefully, we'll be able to find our real home very soon! We are keeping our fingers (& toes) crossed.

Our little flat in Singapore has not been hooked up for TV/cable, internet and telephone yet. We might not want to do so 'cos we'll only be staying there very briefly. So I might not be able to update my blog very regularly unless I bring my netbook to a MacDonalds/Starbucks or some place with free wireless connection...but that's kind of a chore. So let's take a short break (it's SUMMER afterall!) and have fun. I'll be back again as soon as I can. Till then, take care!

[NB: Might squeeze in a few more posts before we leave US on the 22 Jun]
