Weekend is upon us...

Today is April Fool's Day!
my-my-my...it's April already?!
No prank-ing, life at work has kept me extra busy all week! 
The team & I are hard at work preparing for another trip to Singapore very soon.
Not only that, my town house is also in the beginning process of a mini-renovation.
The contractors are going to refinish my hardwood floor & refresh the wall painting.
Lots & lots to do this weekend before leaving the country next week.
A relaxing weekend is not on my schedule at the moment. 
You guys go ahead without me...(~~~slow violin music in the background)
...and have a wonderful & relaxing weekend everyone!
.
P.S: Thank you so much for all your lovely comments this week!
~XOXO*

I hope I've hired the right contractor...so many horror stories out there! Quite exciting, i hope to share photos of the mini-renovation in the near future~

Hope your weekend is great despite all the work!
Have a great time here in singapore!

Btw, Geylang Clay pot rice is great - I've tried a few places and this has been my favorite. I have a few other food recs if you're interested including a few in the MBS.

After all how many times a year do you make a business trip? When was the last time I visited Singapore, I wonder? 18 years ago. Already! I'd like to visit there again. Looking forward to your photos so much. Take care and don't carry too much luggage.

I´m having lots to do as well now, since we´re leaving for vacation next weekend. I like my home to be neat and in order when I´m leaving so I can return to the same - which of course mean that I have to get all done during this week! :-)

Luckily, the spring weather gives me energy! :-)

Have a great day!

Kay said...

wonderful!!! It could have been me this week!

Sam said...

Hahaha! I love that cartoon!

Hope everything goes according to plan and it is a seamless transition from home to Singapore and unpainted/ un-polished to the new! XOXO's

Nothing like being busy and having renos going on at the same time - I know that one. Hope everything goes smoothly and well!

Goodness yes, there's so much going on in your world ... and how on earth did we already get to April?

Take care.

Renovation sounds exciting (once it's done!) I sure do hate the process of having everything in disaray, but what fun to have new paint and floors!
