Five Things Friday (Unlinked)

I’m not linking up with anyone.  And it’s actually Saturday morning in Singapore.  Double fail? No way!  It’s still Friday evening in the US!!  And I’m (finally) sharing a blog post, after a week of blog-silence!  So that’s a double WIN in my opinion.  So let me ease back in by summarizing the last 5 […]

A Post That Needs A Fish Pun (but I can’t think of one)

After all the preparation, then the race, then reliving the whole thing to write the race report (Part 1 and Part 2), I’m ready to talk about something besides “The 50K“.  [Cue all my readers breathing a sigh of relief.] Since The New Blog Plan has designated Wednesdays as “Singapore Stories” day (or some other […]

I Can See Clearly Now….(Or Not)

This is a post for my readers outside of Singapore.  Why?  Because my readers in Singapore are living this experience.  What experience, you may ask?  This one: These photos are courtesy of KMN, taken out the window of his office (thus the glare on the left; sorry!). The 2012 photo was taken at sunset; the […]

Some Days, You Feel Like an Oaf

If you’re living in a new place (abroad, or perhaps just a very different area in the same country), no matter where it is or how flexible you are: Sometimes you have a ‘culturally bad day’.  This may or may not be tied to an acute feeling of homesickness (for me, it’s usually not), but […]

2013 Weekly Workout Round-Up (June 3-9)

Aha! I found it: A week without excuses!  After guests, rhinoviruses, and some IT band hypochondria the past few weeks, things clicked into place this week.  So now it’s Sunday (when I started writing this, although NOW-now, it’s Wednesday, oops?), and my legs are tired.  [Funny how a “good week” is synonymous with tingly-tired legs, […]

Confessions of a Country-Turned-City Mouse

Sometimes, I use this space to talk about weird, annoying, or frustrating things I’ve discovered about living in Singapore.  But the truth is, I love living here.  And I love it for many, many reasons.  But tonight, as I actually work on a serious (and probably controversial) blog post (not this one, another one), here […]

It’s Not The Heat, It’s The Sweat: Running Edition

In my post from yesterday (It’s Not The Heat, It’s The Sweat!), I spent lots of word-age describing how I’ve adjusted to living in a tropical climate, and some of my strategies for making daily life more comfortable. One important note: Many of the physiological changes that occur to help humans adjust to warm weather […]

It’s Not The Heat, It’s the Sweat!

When KMN and I decided to make the move to Singapore, I was worried about a few things.  “Staying in touch with family and friends” was at the top of the list.  Not far behind that was “The Heat“.  Before the move, I’d already been to Singapore half a dozen times, for anywhere from 1-3 […]

“Holly, you’re not in the US anymore”: Censorship Edition

I offer you a peek at a conversation that, after 7 years,  I am quite tired of having: Scene: Me, innocently conversing with someone in the US.  “Singapore” comes up in conversation, usually with respect to “places I have family” or “places I’ve traveled” or (these days) “where I live”. Me: Blah, blah, blah…Singapore….bla— Someone: […]
