Miraculous NINE

We have come a rather long way- 9 years in marriage to be exact with 2 beautiful boys. Each year you will celebrate the day with me in your best possible way which always never fail to bring a smile on my face.

Our 2 Lovely Boys

This year is a no doubter too. I enjoyed our very late lunch at my favourite place again, the movie (though it was an all-boys movie) & the super huge dinner (which was totally AWESOME).

But I guess you will have to agree with me that nothing beats the gift that’s bestowed upon us unexpectedly as a mark of our 9th year wedding anniversary (which is gonna to make our 10th even more special). 🙂

Relocating to Idaho

It’s more than 2 months since I updated this blog. Nope…… I have not abandoned this site. It’s just that we have been busy relocating to Idaho as I’ve mentioned here (also the reason for starting this blog).

We’ve been here for slightly more than a month and we’re already more or less settled down (with a miraculous surprise :)) . My boys have already started school and are enjoying themselves tremendously, I’ve already been put to work by my employer (aka my hubby) with only a pot and a pan. As for my hubby, he was soon to put to work too :).

Now you must be wondering, “Where on earth is Idaho ?” and “How is the place like?”  Idaho is a land famous for their potato and it’s  a state in the northwestern region of the United States (Read here for more).

Well as for how much I like it, l really do not know. Perhaps because I have been under the vast blue skies and stepping on the luscious greens of the Great Down Under??? Perhaps because we had arrived during winter where everything seems dry, grey and brown??? It is really not a place to fall in love with at first sight. Looking at the above map of our location (we’re not near the coast), my BIGGEST pet peeve here is not being able to fresh fish here. Everything is either prepacked or frozen. Nothing at all like the supermarkets of Toowoomba (where we stayed in Queensland) or like the convenience of the Singapore’s (my hometown)  wet market or supermarket too where we can get fresh food all the time.

Having said that, though we have not been to any place of interest yet, we’re very lucky to have a good size of the Singaporean community here. Not to mention that our sponsor (someone who takes care of us till we’re settled down) is ONE OF THE BEST. From mobile lines to our mode of transport to housing basic necessities to food, he really did a fast and great job.

By now other than cooking our basic daily food, I have not yet done any baking yet. However there are times we have been eating out and I do have a few favorites now. I will share them with you in time to come that’s because I’ve not been very hardworking with my camera too. 🙂

Cheesecake Factory @ Boise. By far my favourite restaurant. Never fails to impress + SUPERB Service
