The Long Journey Q3-17

Bonjour. Good morning (day). Guten Tag. 早晨. Hyvää huomenta. Buongiorno. おはようございます. Selamat Pagi. And the list goes on. If your language is not in this sentence it just means that we’ve come to a stop with the last one that is in Malay. That’s all.

Oh wow. So much has happened in just 6 short months.

The last time we said that time flies. Heheh. We now think that time has warped! Just like Star Trek heroes warping through space and time, it seems like the lunar new year was just over, wallet freshly recovering from the wounds of giving out a plenty of red packets.. 满江红…

So what’s Mel and Suan been up to in these last three months? Work! That’s what we did. After depleting the bank accounts (rather emptying it) late last year and in the first 3 months of the year, it was time to let little ‘bankie’ to recover. But work also brought us places May through to June so Bankie might need a little more time to recuperate. Yes we name our bank account too just like the car we used to drive (we are car-lite now yeah!). We thought using money as part of the naming would be fun but “monkie” doesn’t quite appeal phoentically. LOL.

Not being in Singapore meant we did not receive any visitors either….sigh. But we did catch up with friends in the big Apple though… Our latest newsletter is here: The Long Journey Q3-2017! Take a peek.

What’s next?

Sometime in September if we get the slot, we’d finally touch Hua Hin through the use of the timeshare apartment instead of heading to Phuket or Chiang Mai. And we shall road trip there too! Heheh, we have also just placed bookings for a journey to the land of the prophets at the end of the year. Yes – Jordan here we come, although Israel is included too. Bankie will surely be exhausted by then. Again.

What are your plans for the 2nd half of this year?

Author: Mel & Suan

Mel works his day job for a living, but lives for antiquities, history and geography at all other times. He enjoys writing and thought sharing and obviously traveling. Suan is a homey person, who like girlie stuff such as cross stitching etc. Enjoys shopping & modeling for Mel. What a match!

  1. At least you need to replenish your ‘bankie’ because you traveled. Some of us had our ‘monkie’ hijacked by other stuff like children and vices. Hahaha! Here’s still hoping we’re making it to the States in December. Oh, and invite us, we will come visit you in your little red dot. Does that mean free accommodation? Lol!

      1. Hubby wanted NY and then decided it would be too cold so I said Florida and Cali. We checked temps and still kinda cold so he said we should go to the Philippines instead and to the US in summer. Hey, maybe we can visit Singapore! 😊🤗💖

  2. “What are your plans for the 2nd half of this year?”
    Plan is to re-charge my bank account. Plan is also to plan the next trip…
    I’m thinking Hong Kong, and making use of the China 6 day free visa in Guangzhou. Cambodia is on the radar again also.

  4. Look forward to reading about your adventures in Jordan and Israel! While all my colleagues are taking their summer vacation, we’re stuck in HK for now. My next vacation isn’t until November, but I’m pretty excited about that. A week in Kyoto 🙂
