We live in on the 11th Floor, so we have a great view! The apartment is about 1100 hundred square feet maybe a little less. We are fitting in great and really like it. We are close to the Mall, Grocery Store, Library, and MRT. We have about 5 families that just live a few stops away from us. We are have some really nice pools, lap pool, main pool, fun/kids pool, a playground, a gym, a tennis court and sort of bbq pits, and a community room.
dinning room Decor. We had to hire a handy man to hang up the larger pictures in our house, (cause thats what you do out here with these cement walls). The smaller pictures we hung with Sticky stuff.
Our beautiful view, this picture does not do it justice, Singapore has a nature reserve that is acres of trees, and we overlook that and a golf course, and in the far distance Malaysia.
View of the Entry Way, Kitchen table area, and Kitchen door.
family room, with Bookshelf, and Toy Kitchen, which I bought for a steel of ($20.00) at Kid to Kid, i think it needs a makeover though.
Opposite side of the room, our comfy cloud couch and red Chair. The bed has a very comfortable sleeper sofa, hint hint in case you want to come visit
The door that leads to the Kitchen, it is closed and the kitchen does not have any air con. What were they thinking, it is like an oven, and is practically outside- since it attaches to the washer and dryer area which is litterly almost on a porch. Which also means I have a problem with ants, and am working really hard to get rid of them. Yuck.
My tiny Kitchen, if you have a walk in closet, this Kitchen would probalby fit inside it. There is the tiny oven which hold a 9x13 pan but nothing bigger, the sink and the tiny fridge.
The other side, small counter and fridge
The Washer and Dryer (so grateful for both of these), it is right next to the kitchen and is open to the outside like a porch. , the silver door is the Rubbish Shoot, which you open up and you throw whatever you want down 11 story's to a dumpster.
This is the Bomb Shelter (literally) every apartment has. A lot of times it is used as the Helper's room (aka maid/nanny) it is small about 6feet by 4 feet. And is right next to the washer and Dryer. There is no aircon, since it is open to the porch by the dryer.
Master bathroom towels.
Our dresser which fits in the rather wide hallway, really well, a good use of the what would have been wasted space (the hallway)
The large windowsill which is a great storage shelf for Naomi's Sewing stuff, that it all those boxes.
And look a little messy but an alcove in our room, which is a perfect sewing area!!!
The Master suite
Here is Marianne's room, her room is considered a closet because it does not have a built in
Spencer's room has a double bunk Bed, which takes up most of his room, but the bed has also become a play area and a fort, space ship, and a lot of fun.
another picture of the master bathroom
Hallway leading towards the Family room
The guest bathroom sink, decorated with a green hand towel and an original painting by Bridget Smith of the Utah Mountains- We love it Bridget thanks so much!
Guest Bathroom, with Shower.
lots of fish
You could even go and do the big fish "for the bigger sensation" It was fun, Naomi was a little to scared to put her feet in. She stuck a town in the big fish tank and then jumped up screaming :)
Put these amazing sunglasses on for me!
Cheeeeese!This is our Park in our complex. It is awesome and shaped like a Pirate Ship!
Here is the kids pool, which is really close to the park. We love it the whole thing is only about 2 - 2 1/2 feet deep, so Spencer is all over the place and I don't have to hold him. Which is great cause Marianne has to stay right next to me.
Good thing the water is safe here unlike some places we have been, ie Philippines.
The park that is across of the street on top of the mall. We go here a lot. We love the splash pad that is right next to it! The mall which is litteraly across the street from us holds
On the us saying Cheeeeese
Here is Marianne as pleased as she can be because all her animals are shoved into her pocket.
There is a part of Singapore called Chinatown they have lots of souvenirs and fun shops and restaurants. We headed over there last Saturday with our friends Kyle and Jenifer Larson
The coolest dessert Snow Iccee, this one is mango strawberry and the other is chocolate, yummy
Oh and don't forget Marianne has to bring all of her animals with us, which she refers to each one by their sounds, so the horse is a neh-neh, and the chicken is a cluck cluck. At dinner tonight we had chicken and she said More cluck cluck. I thought it was funny
We wnt to a dessert spot and
Last week we took a half day trip to Malaysia. But we went to the wrong spot. It is kind of a process to get there first you have to get on a bus drive for 20 min, get off the bus go in Immigration on the Singapore side, wait in line show your passaport, get on the bus drive 10 min get off the bus go through Immigration on Malaysia side wait in line show your passport and then get on another bus to drive to the part of Malaysia you want to go to- the whole process took about 1 1/2 hours to arrive in Malaysia from our house.
There were scary sick cats every where
