Thank You and Goodbye, Singapore!

IMG_20160716_105108

After almost ten years in Singapore, it’s finally time to say goodbye. We are really excited about our new life in the new country, but at the same time a bit sad too…. Singapore was our beloved home…. We came there with nothing, just the two of us…. Then we found jobs, got married, started a family…. everything happened in Singapore. So many memories….

The Cat Museum

Carla really loves cats. She’s been wanting to adopt a cat for quite some time now, but unfortunately at the moment it’s just not possible. Fingers crossed, by the end of this year we’ll have a new house with enough space for a cat (and another cat, plus a dog, a couple of ducks, a couple of chickens and maybe a hamster…. said Carla and Renan).

Anyway, I came across this website, thecatmuseum.com.sg. I didn’t know there was a cat museum in Singapore!

So, last Saturday we decided to check out the place. We took the train to Bugis, and after a quick lunch at Bugis Junction mall, we walked to the Cat Museum which was just a quick stroll from the mall.

Brazil Churrasco, An Authentic Brazilian Restaurant in Singapore

Brazil Churrasco…. I just have to write a review about this restaurant. This is one of our favourite places to eat in Singapore….

We moved to Singapore in 2006. We had been in the country for less than one week when we found out about this restaurant. On our very first night out in Singapore, we went to Brazil Churrasco, and we’ve been going there regularly ever since then. We even had our wedding dinner in Brazil Churrasco….

Clarke Quay-Boat Quay-Esplanade-Marina Bay

Walking along Singapore river… from Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, all the way to Esplanade and Marina Bay Sands is something that we really enjoy. It’s really relaxing to sit by the river watching the world go by, the kids love to play and run around along the way, and we never get tired of the iconic views of Singapore…. Plus, every weekend there are free performances at the Esplanade’s outdoor theatre.

Last Saturday, again we wanted to go for a walk along Singapore river. We started at Boat Quay. Unfortunately, just before we got to Fullerton Hotel, it started to rain really hard.

We waited for the rain to stop, but it got even worse. Finally we decided to just run to the taxi stand in front of Fullerton hotel and get a taxi home. Oh well, at least we managed to walk around a bit, had dinner (okay, just apple pie and fries from McDonald’s) by the river, and bought our favourite durian ice cream with wafer from the ice cream uncle…..
