Three months in Singapore

Has it really been 3 months since we arrived here?  We are just barely getting used to the way things are done here and we are getting ready to move to another country!  We just sent in our deposit for a little house in a tiny town just outside of Fontainebleau, France.  We will be leaving Singapore at the end of April.  So, from ultra-modern, ultra-streamlined, new, clean, Singapore we'll be heading to a town with less that three thousand people, sometimes sidewalks, and the beautiful Fontainebleau forest.  Quite a change. 
Here are a few of the things we love about Singapore:
1. The cheap taxis.  Very little is cheap here, so it is nice to hop in a cab and not have it cost an arm and a leg.
2. The pools in our complex.  We are in the pool every single day.  Almost without exception. 
3. We love the weather, it is sunny and 80+ degrees almost every day.  That said, we never stop sweating. 
4. The crazy architecture.  Jeff says that everything looks like it was either built yesterday or to look like a spaceship.  Sometimes both. 
5. The flowers are always in bloom. 
6.  There are so many places that are just a cheap flight away.

And now, because I blog so very little, I am just going to skip right over the finesse and get these pictures out there.  Some are from our first apartment (we had one place for 2 months, our lease was up and we had to move at the end of February to our current place) and the rest are from our wonderful trip to Ubud, Bali. 

Tenacious D is perfecting his look of interest; "Oooooo". 
 We went to the Monkey Forest in Ubud and had a wonderful time!  I think it was my favorite thing that we did while we stayed in Bali (except the amazing massages).  We went to this outdoor temple that looked straight out of an Indiana Jones movie, and saw lots and LOTS of monkeys.  We got the monkeys to climb on us to get a cracker in our hands (no, neither of our children were involved) and Jeff was decidedly less squeamish about the whole thing. 

 I'm putting on a brave face, but honestly I think this monkey is just trying to cop a feel. 
 Jeff seems a lot more comfortable. But then, the monkey never tried to get fresh.

 Bean and I had a mini spa date in our hotel. 
 We visited the Holy Springs temple on a holy day, it was really wonderful to see all the devout come and bathe in the waters, bring offerings and come and pray.

 We spent a great deal of time in the pool right outside our little villa. 

 The hotel staff were so sweet and befriended Bean.  They won his heart because they let him follow them around.

I love this, Amy! Great photos and such a walk down memory lane for me.

Can't believe that monkey getting fresh with you!

Jeff looks awesome in a sarong.

Your little family is so adorable. I love that you're traveling with your kiddos and they are learning so much!

Keep the blog going, woman! Now that I've found you again, you must not stop!
