long time no blog.. sorry about that, i wasn't in the mood to blog, truth be told.. i already wrote a little about kuta, as far as i remember. there isn't much news. we spent the days relaxing, surfing, reading, etc.. and the nights eating and going out (well joel and daria.. me not so much.. i don't like the nightlife in kuta. it's so artificial in my opinion.).. on the last day daria and i got a baby turtle each, which we released into the sea. they have this project in kuta where they dig up the turtle eggs, put them in a huge sandbox.. and then when they hatch everyone can get a turtle (the day after) and release it. they are so cute! i have absolutely fallen in love with turtles! i know i've said it before, but it's true. :D anyhow, it was really impressive to see them sense or smell the ocean.. they tried really hard to climb out of the little containers to get to the ocean. other than that, nothing exciting happend.

coming back to singapore was nice. it's not quite like coming home but you do come back to something familiar and a place you enjoyed so it was definitely a very positive feeling. unfortunately we also received bad news. very bad news indeed. we were originally supposed to stay at someone's appartment.. someone we know.. however, when joel decided to send him a text the night before our flight (which was at 6 in the morning) just to make sure we're still okay to stay at his place i laughed at him.. a little anyways.. cause i thought he worries too much. turns out he was right to worry. the guy texted him back saying it was no longer okay for us to stay there because he's at home, which he originally wasn't supposed to be, hence our arrangement. well, i thought he was joking first but he wasn't. so of course we started to worry a little bit because our plans were screwed, we had no place to stay and singapore is very expensive when it comes to rent, etc.!!!!! VERRRRY expensive! more expensive than switzerland, imagine that!! anyhow, i was a little upset to be honest because if we wouldn't have texted him i'm not sure he would have notified us. and that is very very very shitty of him!! no matter how chaotic someone is, if people depend on you you have a responsibility and he clearly can't seem to be able to handle too much of that. but at the same time i can't help but think that maybe something bad happend. even though he didn't sound like it something could've still happend while he was travelling, which made him come home early.. oh well, i don't feel like asking... don't want to invest the time or energy to use my thumbs and write him a text... end of story.

when it comes to being back in singapore there's also a downside. i'm gonna be quite honest here. i am dying to go home. after 10 weeks without my life i'm done. and being in singapore means waiting for your flight home. there are still a couple of things i want to see and i'm also meeting a friend or two next week.. i have to go to the school too to pick up a letter :) .. so i have things to do... still though, i'm not really interested in big tours anymore and i can't go shopping too much either cause there's no more space in my backpack.. even after throwing out a lot.. :D might take a trip to victoria's secret though... ;) tee hee... anyhow, at least i have my guitar back and i finally found a capo so i've been playing as much as i can.. today i played all morning, practicing and preparing for the wedding in two weeks. no, not my wedding of course but the wedding of two friends who kindly asked me to sing at the ceremony. i'm very much looking forward to it! can't wait!! i really hope that i can contribute beautiful music to their wedding with as few mistakes as possible :D so that means practicing practicing practicing.. so that's exactly what i'll do. :)

tonight we're gonna go to little india (again). i love little india. such a vibrant place! and it's nice to spend time there when you need to escape the city. :) of course i'm also looking forward to the food. goood indian food that makes you lick your fingers again and again..

alright, i think that's enough for today. i'll try to get in one or two more blogs. no promises though.
