Katja left with Morgan and Guillaume. The kids left with the housekeeper. Hehe. The house is all empty, but for me. I get up eventually and rummage through the kitchen looking for food. I find a couple of eggs, and vegetables and fruits. I’m just into the fruits after having boiled a few eggs when Katja arrives back from the store with bread, butter, ham and cheese. What a treat! We eat baguette with a smile before resting for an hour. I know, it’s not like I’m over worked, but Katja needed to rest a little and who am I to argue?

We go out and head for the city center afterwards. There’s a bus stop not far from the house and we walk there and start an adventurous journey. We get tip from a guy at the bus stop and he takes us to the MRT, the subway. From there it’s easy enough. We get EZ cards to use as tickets and go to Orchard road. The famous shopping street of Singapore. It’s hot outside and freezing inside any mall we enter. We walk down the street, get a coffee at a Starbucks before Katja finds out we should go to a store just across the street from where we exited the MRT. Back up then. The store was a bust as they didn’t have what Katja wanted, so next stop is the main store.

We go by MRT again and exit at the start of Arab street. It’s as you can imagine with basically Arab nationalities in the street. Food, shops and mosques. We find the store “Touch the toes” and Katja buy a set of yoga pants and a top. Then we have great Mediterranean food for dinner. We try to walk to the river, but end up walking along the highway instead. Well well, we get in on the MRT and take it back to our stop and then the bus the last stops home.

The house is dark when we arrive at nine and I have no idea if anyone’s at home. I blog little before going down to our room where Katja already is in bed. Hopefully we’ll have anther good night’s sleep as we tomorrow will meet up with Leaitisia for a walk in the park.

Humongen! The big guy! The man, the myth, the legend! And then theres' me. The nice guy in the house. The man without cooking skills, but with five stars on the Playstation. Boss at work, relaxed at home. What you see is what you get. Life is good. I choose it to be.
