Lego’s & Tintin

Before we headed home for Christmas we checked out Nathan Sawaya’s The Art of the Brick at the Art Science Museum. The sculptures were created solely with LEGO bricks!

On the way home we came across the Tintin shop. I think the pictures speak for themselves!

bits & pieces from the last few weeks


                                    Waiting for our burgers at Fatboy’s so yummy!

                                      I’ve been busy cooking and baking:)

                              Lunch with the lovely Azizah & Matt stealing my hot chocolate

 The girls

                                    Enjoyed some coffee at Group Therapy, such a good name:)



                              Out and about in Tanjong Pagar & Chinatown


 Enjoying some amazing seafood not the most fancy setting but super good!

Hope you all are doing well!

Big hugs,

Em & Matt

our move in day is almost here!

This is going to be a very big week for us! We get the keys to our new place on Wednesday and all of our stuff arrives on Thursday. Matt conveniently scheduled a work trip to London so he will miss all the fun of unpacking. I can’t wait to be able to sleep in our own bed again and have the rest of my clothes!

It’s funny, there’s a small part of me that thinks we still live in Seattle and have just been on a month long business trip. I have a feeling seeing all of our belongings in Singapore will make things very clear.

Miss you all!


1 Month anniversary!

I can’t believe we’ve lived here a month already!  I thought the best way to reflect upon this significant life moment was to make a high/low list. So here we go:



Having to say good bye to my family & friends Seeing Matt’s adorable smile when he picked me up at the airport
Cell phone drama Finally having a phone that was mine & worked
Our temporary housing’s slow internet, uncomfortable couch (see above picture) and an oven that blows all fuses when you turn it on Having housekeeping come every other day with fresh towels, new sheets and washes the dishes in the sink
House Hunting Finding & getting our place
Missing everyone at home Meeting awesome people who are friendly, helpful and very welcoming
Missing my boys: Tobin, Sky & Griffy Skyping with the boys, getting to see Sky blow out his birthday candles, Griffy saying “I love you” & watching Tobin eat in his high chair
Milk and most dairy products Amazing Asian food

We are so excited for all the adventures and experiences that the coming months will bring.

All our love,

Em & Matt

House Hunters International the Hulen Addition Round 2 & done!

We got the place! All the paperwork was finalized yesterday and our move in date has been set for the end of the month. I can’t tell you what a relief it is to have this done. And the best part is we LOVE our place. The only thing I’d change is adding a dryer but I’ve learned that dryers are not very common here. I have a lot of ironing in my future.  Here are a few pictures I snapped with my phone during our viewing. I’ll post more once we move in. I almost forgot the best part… Our place has two bedrooms & two bathrooms which makes having guests so much easier so start planning your trips people cause we have room!
