I returned from Singapore a couple of weeks ago and I’ve been very busy since then. But today, at last, I’m able to add a new post, my first on 2009. First, I’d like to wish you guys a great year; full of peace, health, love, and a much recovered economy. And though the year didn’t begin peacefully in the Middle East, I’m trying to be optimistic (you know what is said about positive thinking!). Now let’s talk about the trip, it was great! …I enjoyed a lot of time with my family, visited many interesting places, and got the chance to meet fellow blogger and IF illustrator Eslina Jupri. Eslina is really nice and funny, and we had such a pleasant chat that time fled by without us noticing. Here is a photo our meeting: / Ya estoy de vuelta! Desde que regrese de Singapur he estado muy ocupada, pero hoy al fin he podido agregar esta nueva entrada, mi primera del 2009. Primero que nada quiero desearles un nuevo año lleno de paz, salud, amor, y prosperidad. Y anqué por aquí no ha comenzado el año pacíficamente, yo no pierdo la esperanza de que todo mejore. Ahora hablemos del viaje…me fue de lo mejor; disfrute mucho con mi familia, visite lugares muy interesantes, y tuve la oportunidad de conocer a Eslina Jupri, quien también participa en IF y MA. Eslina es de lo más simpática, conversamos mucho y la pasamos de lo mejor, tanto que el tiempo voló sin darnos cuenta. He aquí una foto de nuestro encuentro:
From right to left: Eslina and truly yours
(I wish I could also post the goodies she gave me but they were so delicious that we could not resist the temptation!)
About the country I can simply say: “I (heart) Singapore”… It is a beautiful and safe place; everything is well organized, clean and green. Here are few photos of the many I took (I’ll be uploading those to facebook ) I also got some nice books and goodies, but I’ll post about that later. See you soon! / Sobre el país simplemente les digo: “Yo (corazón) Singapur”…es un lugar muy bonito y seguro; avanzado, organizado, limpio y muy verde. Aquí les dejo algunas fotos de las tantas que tome (ya las iré subiendo al facebook)

Lovely creative blog,Zari! Terribly sorry for the delayed reply though. I haven't had the time to really respond back to everyone who commented at the Directory. And I agree. Singapore is a great n beautiful place to visit. Only am peeved that they're still adament n stubborn to insist that every local dish originated from that island but in fact it came from our Peninsula. The thieves! I will add you to our directory link as soon as I can. Cheers!
