In the midst of arriving back to Singapore and having to look into the various administrative work needed to be done, I have been unable to provide anything substantial here.
I have also allowed the New Year to slip by unannounced!
It has been 5 days already since we crossed into 2011. I am in the midst also of shifting into my new quarters, one floor down from my temporary rooms upstairs. Renovation work has been rather slow, with all the contractors and workers being taken up by other projects even as they hurry to finish my rooms - office and sleeping quarters. So far, only the office area has been, more or less, completed and is being use now - writing this, especially! The sleeping quarters, well, it seems like be fully functional and be able to live in by early next week.
Meantime, it is the New Year, so we make the best of everything.
