Tomorrow morning (well, actually, in 13 hours) I leave for Singapore for 3 weeks on a holiday. It's going to be an interesting time since the weather in Singapore (hot, humid, currently extremely hot) and the weather in Bellevue (cold and snowing) couldn't be more different. :P I haven't posted much since just after coming back from [livejournal.com profile] testing4l's because I was really busy at work diving in to failure investigations and other work-related things that came in unexpectedly. In that sense it's good that I'm taking this break because, frankly, I need to get away from checking work emails for at least a week.

Things that happened the last few weeks:
- I met [livejournal.com profile] nakaemi for the first time and we had hot chocolate at a Denny's. While the hot chocolate itself wasn't too bad (especially the whipped cream), I found it a bit hard to talk to [livejournal.com profile] nakaemi for some reason. It could've been shyness, but I also felt like I was blocked in some sense. Anyway, I hope [livejournal.com profile] nakaemi and [livejournal.com profile] itsacz are feeling better now.
- [livejournal.com profile] wao and I went for Karaoke with some of my friends. There was a lot of bad singing, including some Japanese songs and [livejournal.com profile] wao doing Bicycle Race (the one Queen song I can't stand). I did Kylie Minogue passably well (well, for a guy anyway) although I'm still hoping some karaoke place has Sophie Ellis Bextor's music (Take Me Home / Murder on the Dance Floor). I felt bad that I couldn't see [livejournal.com profile] nakaemi off at the airport when she was leaving, but I had already planned this karaoke event for a few weeks. Given that it could've been an emotional parting (according to the text message I got), maybe it's better that I didn't go?
- [livejournal.com profile] wao and I went to the San Juans. Due to a mixup on my part we ended up getting there in the afternoon and didn't have much time to see anything in particular. The sunset was gorgeous though, and wao took a picture of it here, which I am using as the desktop background for one of my office computers.

There are a lot of friends to catch up with in Singapore - my family's interested to know how owning a car has changed things (or whether it even has) and a lot of my friends are going through changes in their relationships towards the next level. If I do decide to get married, I would like to get married at Lime Kiln Point in the summer. :P

But have you got my bag of undergarments back? :(

And why aren't you taking your last opportunity in 3 weeks to take many Lillian photos? I DEMAND MORE LILLIAN PHOTOS.

Heh, I leave for England on Wednesday for three weeks and the weather here is warm and sunny and the weather there is freezing and rainy.

Didn't see this until now... Hope you have a safe flight and a good trip! I've never been to England but I keep telling myself some day I'll go there.

You would not believe the strings I had to pull to get this much time off (and even then I'm in vacation debt for about 4 months). A lot of it is sorting out paperwork for various things (particularly my US work visa), but I also needed the time off after working crazy hours the last few weeks.
