We got to Singapore a little past midnight on July 30. We were there to celebrate my father-in-law’s 59th birthday and to visit Jim’s sister who just recently moved there to work for the Disney Channel. It was a great trip and I’m glad I finally found the time to sit down and share it with you even if it’s been 2 weeks since.

This was my daily breakfast for the whole trip LELZ

We went to breakfast and Jim’s parents asked if we could let Nunki tag along with us for the day so they could catch up with their friend for lunch. Of course we agreed because Nunki’s the best!

She went with us to our room as we got ready for our afternoon of fun

Need to get her away from that iPad haha

As soon as we got outside, Jim was on paparazzi mode (“For your blog,” he said. What a sweetheart.) so we posed for the camera.

"Nunki, pose like this"

"But I'm holding a blueberry muffin"

Then we headed back to the hotel but not before getting some ice cream. It was Nunks’ first time to try Haagen Dazs because she’s a Ben & Jerry’s kinda girl. We asked if she liked her Cookies & Cream.

"I think I'm in love with it."

“I think I’m in love with it.”

Heading back, we saw a BLACK ANUS

Apparently, there are home owners in Singapore who turn their beautiful houses into apartments for tenants. So the exterior of the place looks like an actual house and you enter and it’s a gorgeous living area but upstairs, each room is equipped with their own bathrooms, kitchens, etc. I think ate Mia’s place has about 6 tenants. None of that sad apartment lobby feels. Just a wonderful gallery when you enter the house.

Her place has a really nice private deck where we had wine to cap off the night. Awkward moment: I said, “wow, I’d love to have a really big deck” …

Jim's other sister Chelo couldn't get off work so she followed the next day!

Ate Mia gave Jim an R2D2 backpack and as you can tell -- HE'S SO HAPPY
