Weekend Surprise

'Keep your weekend free.' Was what Julien told me. That was it. He didn't tell me where we were going, or what we were going to do. I tried to fish for information by telling him I need to dress for the occasion, and hence he SHOULD tell me if it's going to be sunny, or if I should wear something nice. Nothing. He wouldn't tell!

So, I packed for ALL occasions.

My Saturday started out nice already since The Yeti was going to meet me after my French classes, which is rare, so he could take me to the secret location. The anticipation was overwhelming yet it was so exciting for me. I was actually more happy that Julien took the time to plan out a surprise for me! =)

As we rode on east, I was really trying to guess where he would turn, or in which general direction he was going. He knew I was going to do that, SO he took a really long detour to our destination just so I would not be able to guess before hand. Anyways, we finally pulled up at the Changi Village Hotel. I was ecstatic!

What a good break from the unpacking and organising of the house. We totally took advantage of our stay and sat by the pool almost all day. And the next day, since we missed breakfast, we decided to have a nice buffet brunch instead.

Thank you Yeti!!!!!

The hotel room

This was just dessert


The last time Julien and I ordered crepe in this restaurant at city hall, we were unpleasantly surprised, because they did not present the crepe like how it should be presented - flat. It was all rolled up like a tortilla. Some others fold crepe in quarters which isn't very presentable either.

Until we found this other restaurant along Princep Street, whose French owner is also our friend. Nicholas is his name, and this is as close as it gets to better than average crepe that we've had so far. There's even cider!

That was our Friday date night! Who wants to stop dating after marriage?!

Our New Sofa Bed!

This just arrived this morning, so we (the ikea delivery people helped us) took all the existing furniture out of the room, shifted the existing cupboard to the space beside the entrance which you cannot see here, and placed the sofa bed. It's bare, but already it looks like something. Now to see what I want to keep and what I want to throw out. I should have taken a before picture. But, I forgot.

We have a guest room now!! Yippee!!!!

Sidenote: I want to say, the ikea delivery people were wonderful! There was no way I could shift the cupboard where I wanted it, since it was pretty heavy, and they did it for me! they even realised that the screws in the cupboard had not been screwed on, so they did it for us too! There was a cupboard door that was not fixed right so it wouldn't open or close properly, and it had a screw or two missing, Guess what? They fixed it for us! I'm very impressed!!! So impressed we turned on the air conditioning for them while they worked the fix the cupboard, shift out the single bed that was in the room, shift in the sofa bed, and fix it. We also gave them as much ice cold water as they wanted, and we tipped them in the end even though we didn't really need to. Somehow, it just felt right. We had a really good feel about these two guys that delivered the couch to us.=)

I'd like to show you the rest of the house, but it's still in a huge mess. Patience!!!
