Chuseok in Singapore, 2014

For the past two years I kept telling Jee Young that I was coming to visit her in Singapore. I even bought a ticket last Lunar’s New Year, but it just didn’t work out (aka that ticket was way too expensive and I got it refunded later after I felt guilty about it). But this past Chuseok it was finally time.

How many angles can you take of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel? A LOT.

And then there’s a building in the shape of a durian (above). Okaaaay. (Lucky for me I didn’t even have to smell one for my whole trip.

I really liked the bottom of this fountain (Above). So. I took a picture of it.

The highlight of my trip by FAR was visiting Jee Young at her school. Seeing her teach again gave me inspiration. She also set it up for me to be able to observe other first grade classrooms. I gained some great resources and learned more about teaching. BEST VACATION EVER.

On the top of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel enjoying the infinity pool. It was incredible. I mean, maybe this might have been the high light of my trip.

I am so grateful for the friendship I have with this woman, who knows me so well. Thank you for an amazing time in Singapore. I cannot wait to come back.

I know it’s hard to believe with the amount of photos I posted on this blog. But I actually took the majority of photos on my iPhone. If you’re friends with me on facebook, the link is HERE.
