This is one of those odd posts . It started off as a reply to everyone's comments to my On Holiday post and then I kept writing more and its almost a mini-post by itself so I decided to publish it as one without making any changes.
Thanks for writing in all of you. It was great to take off for 2 weeks like that and I'm still basking in the holiday-induced lazy, mellow mood. I've got lots to tell you so keep checking in, okay? So...Kamini, Sampoorna, Tina, Patricia ... everyone! (you really dont want me to name everyone, do you? I just flew back in today; have some mercy! my brain is still a bit fuzzy) thanks for wishing that I have a great time and that I enjoy my holiday.
By the way, I'm sorry it took so long for everyone's comments to show up here and then for my replies to follow. I didnt have much access to the internet while I was away and so I couldnt approve them for publication. Sorry!
Sandeep, that's wicked of you! But come to think of it, if they have those orchids in the Singapore jails maybe I would've even enjoyed it !
Orchid photos by the bucket-load are queueing up to be blogged about. And I still feel as if I should've clicked more photos but I was too busy gawking at everything to remember to take photos. What can I say? Singapore is just one of those places that invite photo-taking.
Yes, I did indulge in some retail-therapy too as advised. Except it left me more stressed out than anything else because I kept converting everything into Indian rupees and nearly screeched with shock everytime. Remind me to leave my calculator back home next time, okay?
GT, consoling myself with thoughts of Aloo Parathas didnt help. I pigged out on Laksa and Nasi Goreng and Ayam Penyet and all kinds of things that I dont remember the names of but remember the flavours only too well. Yummy! Oh yes, and its all showing up on me too! :(
Amila, you should've seen the butterflies at Tioman (yes, we hopped over there too)! I was almost scared to walk thinking I would step on a few along the way. Beautiful!
But more later, okay? I just wanted to say hi to all of you today itself. I've got to get all my photos loaded up onto my computer but first I need sleep . Bye !
