Back in Singapore

Category : travel

Internet access had been intermittent at best in San Francisco and was on the move mostly with a surprise visit to Point Reyes National Seashore. So I got to visit both oceans this trip!

Touched down yesterday. Bathed at a friend's place near the airport and did a delivery to my SF friend's mum. His sister saw my Museum of Vertebrate Zoology t-shirt and called her kids over. Turns out they loved Sue and went twice!

Got reacquainted with curry over lunch at Dempsey Road and back home. The three cats were great; cat had been well taken care of. Marked us vigorously! We missed them too.

Xylo is super fat now, having eaten the food of the slightly slimmer Mr Bats an the always slim Tiger. I suppose he also missed what little exercise the corridor offers. He set to work immediately biting the soft horse toy that was meant to be a reminder of the wild horses - appears to be optimal prey size!

Well, now his meals are controlled, and I can't leave out food anymore. I have to ensure the other two get their share - a real pain since they do not eat all in one go, and only when the mood strikes them! Xylo puts his share away quickly, its a joy to watch. Then no more food is left out. Only good thing about this is he'll wake me up in the mornings in anticipation of breakfast.

Unpacked and held out to 8pm with the help of friends. Once they left, I K.O.-ed. Woke and worked 2am-4am. The up at 7.30am. Am interested to see how bad jetlag is on the return leg tis time around. I cannot remember from the last two trips.

Off to a Museum Roundtable meeting now. Will mention the North Carolina State Museum of Natural Sciences. Well, if I am coherent enough!

But first, some good coffee!
