Why Wait? Don’t Procrastinate!

It’s been almost two months since we left Singapore last June and we’re kinda missin’ sunny Singapore already! I have got time to spare to copy/back-up/browse photos which bring back a lot of memories *fans my eyes*.

We were in Singapore for almost a decade and it was only during our last two months in Singapore that we started doing things, going places and spending quality time with friends. Our daily routine in Singapore was basically go to work and go home (most of the time) during weekdays. Weekends were spent doing household choresssssss (plural form to the nth level) and taking breaks once in a while. Boring, I know. Saturday nights spent at home doing movie marathons and watching TV shows reruns with popcorn, chips and some booze on the side is already a good weekend for us. Mababaw lang ang aming kaligayahan. As long as we get recharged for the following week, we’re all good.

We kept brushing off the idea to explore Singapore when we had the time. We came up with millions excuses not to. This e-card sums up my point.

ahh-procrastination

Then, it hit us. We barely had time to do everything we wanted to do. Panic mode. How will we be able to fit in all the things we wanted to do in our busy work schedules plus all the packing that had to be done?!? Like what people say, if you don’t really want to do something, you can give a lot of excuses but if you really want to do it, you’ll find gazillion ways to do it. There’s no way we’d leave Singapore without doing what we’ve been wanting to do for so long-things that would make us happy and supposed to be doing. At least, hubby and I think alike. We took some days off from work and did some crazy and fun things. Two months left. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

Here are some of the things that kept us preoccupied, happy and sane during our last few months in Singapore.

We visited our first dog friend, Boyboy. We didn’t see him for 4 years and when he saw my husband again, he started to jump hysterically. An awwww moment.

Afternoon picnic in the park with friends while we listened to an orchestra playing some classical music.

We had fun in Adventure Cove. In fact, we went twice!

We also swam with the dolphins! I have always been fascinated with these creatures and there’s no greater feeling than being able to interact with them.

Ate at Lau Pa Sat (hmmmm… satay and bbq stingray), walked all the way to City Hall and visited the New Capitol Centre with good, old friends

We also went back to Universal Studios and rode the gigantic roller coaster. One item off my bucket list. Here’s to more roller coaster rides!

Alberto and I worked like dogs for years in Singapore (not that we’re complaining) and we thought, why not spend our last night in Singapore in a very celebratory, posh way after all the packing we did for one whole month?!? Hashtag we deserve it. We agreed to spend a night in Marina Bay Sands Hotel before flying back home to the Philippines for good last June. Marina Bay Sands Hotel is the famous hotel with a ship-like structure on top of its three towers.

If we weren’t running out of time, we could have done so much more. So, don’t wait til the last minute and get bogged down by work. Drop whatever you are doing now and start doing things that make you happy. Remember, a happy self makes one young and healthy. Life is too short to be anything but happy. 🙂 Sending you some good vibes before the week ends!
