The highlight of my Saturday was definitely meeting my old school friend Anita and her boyfriend Eric. Anita was my senior in school and she moved to Seattle for work several years ago. I haven’t seen her in yonks and it was superbly awesome to have caught up with her. Lots of chatting and laughing – my favourite! We walked to the waterfront and went to a restaurant called The Crab Pot. I don’t eat crabs (or anything with a face) but there were things in the pot I happily ate. Oh man… Good times…

And on Sunday, I found a new ornament for our Christmas tree! When T and I got our tree last year, we couldn’t afford many things so we made do with fairy lights and a star topper. I made the decision to grow our collection of ornaments together – quality rather than quantity. So we buy what we can afford and remember the story of each ornament. I was looking for a Seattle souvenir to mark this trip and I walked all over but only saw mass-produced stuff that were run-of-the-mill until I stumbled onto a shop that specializes in maps. MAPS!! How quaint! How uhmmm hipster? I ended up buying a little globe covered with a vintage map. It even came with the attachment for hanging and a little box for storing.

Oh yeah and we ate crappy vegetarian food in a crappy dungeon last night. I passed New Saigon (6th Avenue, Seattle) a couple of times and told T we should try it since we’ve already had Long Provincial twice since we came. The flashy neon signs that said VEGETARIAN FOOD was calling to me. Should’ve checked Yelp before we went in. Gaaaah!! As much as Yelpers were right about Long Provincial, they were right to give this place 2.5 stars too. Dangerous & awkward basement location, bland and boring decor, substandard service and food. And this was all within walking distance of Long Provincial which ALSO served Vietnamese cuisine with a vegetarian menu, had a more chic interior, fast and friendly service AND were identically priced!! BAH!!

Oh well… The ups and downs of travel and discovery… ONWARD TO MORE
ADVENTURES!!!

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.
