Headed to Singapore

Leaving. In three hours. Not taking DH's laptop. I'll have some computer access at our friend's house, but plan on being far too busy doing "touristy" things [I'll be the blonde American woman with the camera NOT dressed in a black bag!], and doing "normal" things. For 11 days. Oh, joy! I will miss The Kids. They will be fine... I've left lists and notes and all the food is measured and bagged individually for each Kid - all clearly marked and labeled, of course. Hopefully I can find a great toy story in Singapore and will bring them both presents when I return.

I would like to extend a big welcome to all of the new visitors that have arrived here, in the last 24 hours, all 350 of you!, via View From The Porch. I regret I am leaving just as you have discovered me, but I will be returning and will continue to post. Please enjoy my archives. Pictures and all sorts of good stuff there. Two good, recent posts, with a sampling of my life here in The Sandbox are my visit to the delicious cheese bread bakery and pictures of "Meat Street." Please do come back and visit when I return.

And to the rest of you - the friends I have made that visit me often - see y'all in less than two weeks! [If you shoot me an e-mail - I will be checking it - and if you would like a post card from Singapore, just give me the information I need and you WILL get one...]

Oh, and thanks to everybody who responded to my first ever "poll" about what to do with our old truck and 3L. I do believe DH has been influenced by the results.

I'm off and I promise to have a WONDERFUL TIME!


  1. Argghh there are hundreds of blonde American ladies (and Australian and British) in Singapore!! Its kind of like our second home. Hope you are having a great time. Im looking forward to reading what you did and what you thought about the little red dot at the bottom of Malaysia. We will be there in about a month too for our fill of movie theatres and air conditioning.

  2. Hi Sabra,

    I am one of he visitors, along with my brother. It is amazing here. I was caught in the shamal yesterday but took some amazing pictures.

    I would like to drop off a cookbook that my wife wrote (and signed). Should I just drop it on your front porch for your husband to bring in? Amazing, the first house I lived in is less than 1/2 block north of your house.

    Sorry we will miss you. Also sound like you will miss some incredible parties.

    You have a safe and fun trip.

  3. Have lots of fun...and take oodles of pics...Singapore is a very clean beautiful country...or so Ive heard...sigh! Never been.

    See ya later today.

  4. Enjoy your time away, Sabra!

    You will be missed, have fun!

  5. First opportunity at a computer. Sorry for not responding.

    Netlander - did Preet answer the door? I would luv a cookbook! Thank you so much. I regret not being there to meet you.

    I am NOT good on a laptop. Responses and posting waits until I am home again, next week.

  6. I gather this is a vacation for you, Sabra?

    I wish you a safe and happy trip! You can read about my summer planned trip over on my blog.

  7. well this is ironic... I chance upon this blog because of a shadow gallery song and I realise the blog author is coming to singapore? Hope you're enjoying your stay!

  8. Can't wait to hear all your stories, Miss Sabra!
