The Journey & Day 1

Early in the morning at 5AM, we set off to Bordeaux Airport and took a shuttle flight to Paris. I was very alert even though I barely slept due to much excitement.

These are pictures taken halfway through the short journey when we spotted beautiful sunrise.

On the plane, Shannon was happy and excited.

We reached Paris Airport at about 8am and found a place to "rot" for 3 hours. It was really a boring 3 hours. Luckily, Shannon and Damien entertained themselves either running around the compound or watching the "soundless" DVD player. Finally 3 hours passed and we boarded the 13 hours flight towards Singapore!

Shannon was considered quite co-operative during the long flight although she only slept for about 3-4 hours. She was either watching the cartoons or eating the snacks we brought. J watched about 5 movies onboard and I watched 3 of it. Finally, I got to watch "Enchanted" and it was really a nice movie.

We reached Singapore at about 7am and were really dead tired. The plans we made earlier were all cancelled. We picked up the car from my FIL and brought Shannon to the GP at Fajar Shopping Centre. While waiting for our turn, we went for Breakfast at the Kopitiam. Surprisingly, the stall owner of the fishball noodles and Laksa waved at us. In fact, we both wanted fishball noodles but I decided to patronize the Laksa stall. OMG... the fishballs were damn soft and Q... I have been eating frozen "rubber fishballs" for the past 1 year!!! While we are eating, we let Shannon played the kiddy ride again and again cause it's only 20 cent per ride in Singapore while we need SGD2.00 in France. We bought ourselves some daily neccessities and proceeded to the Clinic. We spent $42 at the clinic with 4 medicine prescribed for Shannon and went straight home for a nap.

After she woke up, we brought her down to the playground and she was happliy sweating away. Her Grandma, Grandpa and all the yiyis' were so happy to see her back. They hugged and kissed her when they saw her. She seems to remember xiaoyi the most as they webcam almost everyday. She wanted Xiaoyi to carry her around when we were doing some shopping at Lot 1. At night, she even wanted to sleep with Xiaoyi instead of ME!! ;p
