Back to Life.....

Back to reality!

Strange how certain lyrics keep playing in your head....but that refrain just kept resonating in my mind since A and I arrived home.

It's been over a month since I had the luxury of time to sit down and upload a post - it's been a whirlwind of activities from the hubbub of our last week before leaving Melbourne, the long drive to Sydney (with some drama on our departure day when the car wouldn't start but that's another story altogether), the usual Christmas and New Year festivities to finally coming back to Singapore and settling back in. A and I have been running on a lot of adrenaline and sleepless nights in the last month!

Because our last month has seen us in 3 different locations, it's taken a while for reality to sink in that I'm back for good; well, it's come and knocked me on the head when I got back to work last week with quite a few projects (all urgent) and meetings scheduled. Leisure time in Melbourne now seems so far away!

Now that I have a little down time at work after completing one mad deal involving an over-nighter towards the end, it seemed the perfect opportunity to re-visit this blog which kept me endlessly amused in Melbourne and which will hopefully see my imput now that I'm back home.

I don't foresee that many of my posts are going to be food-related, given that I haven't made it to the kitchen at all since I got back but we'll see. There's some interesting events in the pipeline such as a girlfriend's wedding shower which my pal, G and I will be catering for, which I hope will take me out of the office a lot more. And after 6 months away, there's a whole slew of new restaurants that I've yet to check out.

So keep checking in from time to time....
