HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2019 has been a whirlwind. It saw us knock off trips to 9 different countries!
We rode hot air balloons in Myanmar
Almost got blown off the summit of Dragon’s Back in Hong Kong
Went to the largest water gun fight in the world at Songkran Water Festival in Bangkok
Our friends pulled off the greatest surprise of all time in Bali
Pulled off ANOTHER epic mala birthday surprise for babel
Got to dress in traditional garb with other bffs in Korea
AND got to see old friends tie the knot in Seoul – PLUS I CAUGHT THE BOUQUET
Finally made it to Kuala Lumpur
Went on our first introductory scuba dive and had the beach to ourselves in the most beautiful water ever on Perhentian Islands
Had an amazing birthday with lots of friends, lots of disco, lots of pizza, lots of clubbing, and lots of karaoke
Went to Krabi with Romy!!
Had 4 After Hours art events – which hit my goal of one per quarter for 2019!
and ended it all relaxing on the beach watching sunsets and sipping coconuts in Gili Islands.
Throughout it all we’ve made new friends, eaten LOTS of different foods, flown for a total of ~66 hours, gotten sunburned, hosted countless adventurous friends and fam from NYC, learned a little bit of Mandarin (and even more Singlish), and fell even more in love with this entirely-too-hot small SE Asian country.
We’re still sweating constantly but every day is the best adventure.
Thank you to everyone at home who still loves us, supports us, and tries to stay in touch as best as one can when we are so far away. We miss and love you all very much! Come to visit – it’s fun, we promise! And to all of our new friends, thank you for making Singy feel so much like home.
HAPPY NEW YEAR AND HAPPY NEW DECADE!! Let’s get after it!
Emily and Tim
PS – I promise one of my new years resolutions is to be better at keeping up with these posts! Get ready for more in 2020!
