Stamps and Letters | The Eras Postal Tour: The Search for Hawker Cuisine

  Hello there! Day 3 - a journey to Bugis Street and Chinatown awaits! Prior to our trip, hubby reminded the kids to include Hawker food centers in our itinerary, and today is the day! Bugis Street, a bustling street-shopping district in Singapore, is renowned for its affordability and variety of souvenirs, accessories, clothes, electronics, houseware, and cosmetics, drawing locals and tourists alike.  As we explored Bugis Street, the vibrant Candy Staircases at Bugis Village caught hubby's eyes, their whimsical designs resembling giant unwrapped candies, adding a touch of charm to the area.

Hey there, happy to have you here! Ready to embark on the Eras Postal Tour with me today? In case you missed the Preps post, click here to catch up but make sure to come back! Our first stop couldn't get any better than the enchanting Jewel Changi Airport! It tops our itinerary list for today.

We missed to see this on our initial trip to Singapore in November 2013 as its construction commenced in December 2014, and finally debuted in October 2019 following a five-year development period.  After claiming our luggage, we just had a quick breakfast, then walked into a lush green terraced forest.  Spanning 21,000sqm, this verdant oasis is home to over 2,000 trees, 10,000 shrubs, and the show-stopping Rain Vortex, the world's tallest indoor waterfall.   Perfect timing, we thought, as we patiently waited for the clock to strike 11:00 in the morning.

Crocheted Chair Socks

It’s been more than a year since I crocheted. Oh, how I miss my yarn and crochet hooks! I gave away yarn from my stash to unload and declutter before we moved to our new residence last year.  

Your Grace is Amazing

Sunday morning. I was standing in the midst of the congregation, reflecting on the lyrics of the song flashed on the screen. My heart overflowed with praise and thanksgiving for how the Lord has been so gracious unto me and my family all these years.
