Happy New Year Everyone!

As we headed back to school for the second semester at the beginning of January- we certainly felt ready to start the new 2018 year. Now that we have got our little medical issues out of the way- we are raring to go. During the Christmas break, we enjoyed having our girls with us and everyone spending Christmas Eve and Day in a Singaporean hospital is certainly going to be one of the memorable Christmases on the list. The girls all...

Merry Christmas from Singapore Hospital?

Well it is not how we planned it but we all spent Christmas together at the hospital here in Singapore. If you read my previous post, I was dealing with a Staph infection in my right leg and well… it has lead me to stay in the hospital for 4 days and counting. After starting with it a week ago Friday (doctors think it was some kind of insect bite during the night)- after a progression of drugs from oral, to injection- it became...

Christmas Break has begun!

We are feeling really excited to start Christmas Break this weekend. Julia and Steph arrived on Thursday and it has been such a great feeling to have everyone together again. We haven’t been together for over a year- so we are not taking it for granted! I have been caught smiling regularly as I hear all three of the girls laughing when something catches their fancy! Each daughter has always had a unique laugh- it hasn’t...

Holiday Inn Weiss is Open!

I have been meaning to post this and am just getting around to it now! We have had a number of visitors in the past month or so. The most recent has been Beth and Rose Klassen (Abbotsford) and a couple of ladies from Cambodia (Bori and Sreymon) passing through. The four of them were on a Malaysia-Singapore tour for a week or so.  As Les and I just got back from a rained out free concert in the park on a Saturday night – I saw a...

Clarification and Accurate Information: I am doing well.

Hi all.  Lesley here.  Thanks for your prayers, if you received the last update post.  I do want to clarify and take the panic out of the post.  I am just fine, and everything is ok. I did have an in-office, hospital procedure yesterday, to drain a badly infected (not to mention large, ugly and very painful) abscess in the armpit area.  What started out as what seemed like a pimple or a small boil about a week ago, just got...

Navy Ball, Uber Premium, First BBQ, First Lady, and Jelly Fish

Below I will be starting with the most recent to the older stories- only because the recent stories are fresh in my mind. NAVY BALL: We experienced our first US Navy Ball here in Singapore this past Saturday night. The Ball is very well done and is held as a Birthday celebration of the Navy in the USA (242 years). With around 500 people or so in attendance, our school has been a long time supporter through donation, buying tickets,...

Just a few quick snippets from the past week or so. Order listed is from latest to oldest news Well tonight was big! It has taken us 7 weeks to collect all of the items and find a way to make home made pizza! This may seem like no big deal to you- but it is a big deal for us! To be honest- for the final missing pepperoni-  in the end we found a Subway and bought a “salad” to place the remaining items on the pizza! We asked...

How Community is looking here- School community is important.

Our Community So life out here really does revolve around school life. Our work life is obviously soaked into the school- both during the day and some evenings. From our own prep to helping Maya with her homework- life in the evenings is often about ICS.  Our social life involves many of the staff and students around the school as well. Friday night we ended up going to a Night Festival downtown and met up with some of the teachers...

Singapore Life after three weeks

So as I have been trying to decide how to write a collection of my thoughts and impressions since arriving here- I thought I would break it down into life in Singapore and school life. Singapore Life We are slowly figuring out where we live relative to the entire country of Singapore. We live in the bottom west side of the island and we venture out regularly to explore. For example-we successfully can navigate to a south central mall...

Almost 2 weeks in…

Hello friends and family. Wanted to briefly update you on the current journey. Here’s me ‘n Maya “driving” the bus. Actually, many of the public transit buses here in singapore are double deckers, so if you get on and go up the stairs, and if the front seat is free, you could sit yourself down there and watch the city fly by, feeling like the captain of the ship. Little known facts (by me at least) that...
