Random Updates

Seems like a long time since I have done one of those.

I have been reading a lot since I still don’t have a job. It’s the first time in 4 years that I am home doing nothing. Not even 4 years, in fact for the first time in my life considering I joined my first job immediately after my Post Grad exams. It’s definitely not a good feeling.

We are going to India in November for 10 days to celebrate Diwali with family, husband’s as well as mine. It should be fun.

My parents and younger sister are coming to Singapore in December for a trip and we’re planning on places to visit and things to do. I can’t wait.

I finished my first audio book. I will tell you all about it later.

As you all know readathon is near and although I wanted to participate I can’t. My husband is going to Jordan on 12th and I want to spend these couple of days with him. I will pop in to comment and cheer unofficially though if I get the chance. All the best to those who are taking part. Have fun!!!

Our lease for the house is ending in November and we spent a lot of time looking for a house. Prices have gone up so much since the last year that we were afraid we would not find a descent house in our budget. But we did find one at the last moment and I cannot wait to shift in after we come back from our Diwali holiday.

Oh and we watched quite a few movies. I loved Dabangg. Such an awesome movie. Although I don’t like Salman I think he did a great job in this movie. We also saw Wall Street. I kind of slept for 20 mins or so. Don’t blame me, the movie was sooo boring. I want to watch that animation movie featuring Owls, sorry can’t recall the name. I will drag my husband to it.

My husband gifted me a new camera, Cannon G11, for my Birthday (5th Oct). I love taking photographs and I love my new camera. It’s awesome.

  1. Wow, sounds like you’ll be busy in the upcoming months.
    The price of apartments have been surging like crazy over here, and I can’t think of the reasons unless there’s a limitation of space here??
    Ooh, I love your new camera! My husband and I are looking at cameras lately… just can’t decide on which model to buy! 😉


    1. Agents tell us it’s because the government changed the HDB rules, now more people are renting instead of buying. Who knows. Let us know what camera you decide to buy.


  2. HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY! what a fab gift – I hope to see some cool photos of where you live! and Happy New Home and happy “spending-time-with-hub-and-not-readathonning” and happy new audio book reading experience and…
    Just happy-happy.


  3. Hi Violet,

    Happy belated birthday, great present. My husband is the photographer in our house and I must admit he does take some pretty good pictures, usually for his many websites. Me, I tend to cut people’s heads off, or have everything pushed over to one side of the photo, not good!

    I hope that you are enjoying your trip to India. Diwali is an event that we are getting to know much more about in the UK now, and in my home town of Swindon, I know the local Community celebrates quite openly and tries to involve the local people in events, which is really good.

    I’m sorry to hear that you are having trouble finding work at the moment, what sort of job are you searching for? I think the problems of unemployment are the same the whole world over just now. I haven’t been able to find anything myself and it can become quite depressing. It’s quite good to be able to come onto the social networking sites and have a chat sometimes.

    I am sure something will turn up eventually.



    1. I hope you get to experience Diwali, it’s really fun. I was actually looking for a very specific job profile but now I think I’ll broaden a little since there seems such a dearth of jobs. All the best on your job search.


  4. I was never all that into the first Wall Street movie, so I can understand the sleeping. 🙂 I took the kids to The Guardians of Ga’Hoole and liked it.


  5. Happy B’Day Violet… that’s an awesome gift! Jordan sounds so good, I hope we get to see pics that your Hubby takes 🙂
    I hope you have a great time in India over Diwali and also in Dec with your family.
    Rentals have gone up here too, I hope you like the new place too.
    Take care, and you should do these updates more often. I am sure something will come up your way on the job hunting front, don’t lose hope.


  6. Happy belated birthday!
    It’s hard to adjust to not having a job, especially at first. I finally found part-time work just to keep myself busy!
