All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us.
I am a sucker for flowers on the ground: whether they form a carpet of colour on the pavement or sit smug & all alone, I can’t help smiling, and often, stopping to snap a shot.
This is a frangipani I double-backed for as I was running out of the Singapore Botanic Gardens. I must have made a peculiar sight, squatting on the ground for a spell. The pavement was quite hot by then, so I didn’t sprawl on the ground as I’d preferred.
In contrast to enjoying these little quiet moments, Excited Younger Daughter, her Intrepid Traveller Grandparents and I are on our way to Tokyo, Japan. This is far from a quiet moment as she has been looking forward to her Graduation Trip with Grandparents.
My Energetic & Generous Parents take each Grandchild on a High School Graduation Trip of their choice. Most of them live in the United States, so they fly out to Singapore to meet up with my parents and they head to their chosen destination from here. With 7 grandkids, they have made quite a commitment to spend special time with each GrandChild (& their accompanying parent). I take my hat off to them.
It is now Disney-mad Younger Daughter’s turn. Although she hasn’t technically graduated from High School as she is on her “Create My Own Path” homeschool programme, we all decided this is a great time as any to celebrate. So, we are off to Tokyo Disney Resort for 5 nights. Then to Chiba for another 5: to see a castle, a shrine & a museum. And eat lots of sushi, onigiri, ramen & mocha. We will certainly make full use of our time!
Leaving you with one of our favourite Disney songs at the moment – hope you enjoy it.
