Do not eat airline cuisine. It felt like a Chestburster was going to explode out from my stomach during the last 8 hour flight of our 26-hour journey. Add to that jet lag and travel fatigue. I was in bad shape.
Worry not, a few hours rest and I was right as rain. We spent New Years Eve with Sara’s Auntie Suzanne and her family who live just down the road from where we were staying. We wound down the last few hours of 2016 with champagne and Auntie Georgia’s patently cheesy jokes. I was told, “There are dad jokes, then there are Auntie Georgia jokes.” I could not have received a warmer welcome.
I’ve seen but a glimpse of Singapore and I know this is the perfect introduction to Southeast Asia. The best way to see any city is with a local. Sara and her family have made it easier for me to handle the initial culture shock.
Thank you all for your support. Happy New Year. Cheers.
