An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

The Annual Meeting with Juanita


I’ve known Juanita since we were 7. We were Primary School classmates. She now lives in Zurich, Switzerland with her husband and 2 cats. We usually communicate online and send each other gifts. She’s quite the handy crafter and has made me many things – clothes and accessories. These days I get to see her once, if I’m lucky, twice a year when she returns to Singapore. Because time is precious, I always make an effort to take the day off work to spend it with her. Today, we had half a day and it was good!

We had lunch, she picked up a fantastic $10 pair of trekking sandals (carrying case included), bought fabric for dress-making (I spent S$57 for 3 dresses), had tea and then had dinner. I always look forward to just the two of us talking and catching up.

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.
