Life in the fast lane

I haven't been blogging much. Some friends thought I'm missing YK too much to blog. Well, not really.

We've been communicating via email. He worries about his marine fishes but otherwise, he's having a great time. He loves the cool weather and company of new friends. Food is cheap and plentiful around the campus. It's cherry blossom season and the trees are bursting with flowers. I wish I were there too!

We are having swimming lessons tonight. This will be our 3rd lesson. We are swimmers, so don't ask me why we're taking lessons! CH wishes to improve his strokes while I'm just there to accompany him. Our swimming instructor is tanned and good looking, except he's young enough to be my son. The rest of the students (all men) are beginners. The lessons are quite fun actually. The best part is, I get an hour of exercise in the pool.

Yesterday, I walked into a car showroom and got myself a car, exactly the same colour and model as my old one. I tend to be quite casual about buying cars. I see, I like and I buy. It has always been like that. It isn't exactly the best time to buy cars but my old one has been giving me problems lately, I don't want to risk getting stranded on the highway.

I haven't told anyone about the purchase yet. I'm waiting to see if SK can tell the difference when he sees the car in a day or two. I want to be discreet and hopes nobody notices I've changed my car.

My friends and I are going to see The Lion King (Musical) this Friday night. I was very impressed with the 30-minute version at Disneyland Hong Kong, so I'm sure the real deal will not disappoint. The fact that it is performing at Marina Bay Sands makes it even more exciting. This will be my first visit to Singapore's newest and most glamorous playgound!

Do let us know whether anyone notices your new car... I'm curious!

Blur Ting said...

Not easy to notice cos it is not a brand new one. It's younger and better looking than my current one though.

New car! Wow. That's very nice! :) Congrats on it.. ar.. if the number is different.. surely others will notice?

My SINFONIA said...

Surely he can't fail to notice the new interior smell! Btw, I saw Lion King in Melbourne. Fantastic...though I don't know if it is the same production.

OKC and My Sinfonia - It's not a brand new car, so there will be no new car smell :-(
It definitely looks better than my old one and the interior is different. Anyway, I have already told SK about the car, so no more surprises!
