Information Desks, Perfume and Bags...Again!

Hi All,

We are writing to you from Singapore this time and its been a LONG 13 hours!!

We thought we would be really clever and not send our bags directly to Delhi, but claim them at Singapore so that we could take stuff out of them and send it home, do some washing, and have a change of clothes and our toilet bags for the transit hotel...turns out you have to technically leave the airport and enter Singapore in order to do this, and you can't take your bags into the actual airport once you have claimed them. We worked out the best way was to empty out our bags on the floor in the middle of the airport, pack what we wanted to send home into our day bags and anything else we could carry, and re check our bags through to Delhi. We then found a post shop but had to sit and wait for 1 1/2 hours before it opened. It gets better! We sat at Starbucks and Stu went to get some food and his Credit Card declined. The Pay Phones wouldn't work so we had an hour of stressing while surrounded by sleeping bags and African Souvenirs, sitting in Starbucks! It was amagic moment! So 5 information desks later we finally posted our stuff home - $110 NZD! And got to a better pay phone to ring NZ. Westpac had stopped Stu's card because he had spent too much money in too many weird countires and they thought it was stolen...All sorted now though.

We had a 6 hour sleep at the transit hotel, and a shower and we are feeling much better. We even went to a fancy perfume place and sprayed the testers all over us because we don't have our toilet bags lol!

We are about to go and board our flight to India. Quite surreal at this point!

Thanks for the Mark Todd goss Pam!

Hope you had a great birthday and dinner Lysh!

I think it was Stu. Marcelle always says 'Bahahaha'?? You poor things! All that stress!

AND just laugh at my expense, I don't care........sounding like an elephant isn't all bad. I was honestly crying when he was writing it - us on our bikes, I have a mental image....

WHAT about hippos!!??? Did you see any?? I thought you'd put hippos in the heading at the top of one of your pages, and then thought after reading it 'Theres no hippos, what was she talking about?' I looked at the top again and saw it was hippies! Doh!

And was the sleeping bag warm enough?

Love Mum XXXXXXXXX

JESSIE IS COOL!!! ok just had to say that and get it out of my system!! Work is gay - my life has no meaning when you aren't her Marcellopuff! I think Macy Gray says it best....Tho i try to hide it, its clear, my world crumbles when you are not here! bahahahahaha LMFAO, but seriously we work with a whole bunch of mingas - well 96.4% of them are!
Things at home are good. Nick and Kate had their baby on June 2nd, her name is Meg and she is SOOOOO cute - i cuddle her as much as i can. She looks like Nick (unfortunate i know) but she really carries it off well and throws that whole 'baby cute' thing in there.
Manny is still a TradeMe slut, he honestly had one drink with it then opend his legs! Its sad but we are trying to get him some help.
Anywho i miss you heaps - hope India treats you well and if you see the Dehli belli tell it get the Fuk away! take heaps photos of Taj mahal - i want to see it! Have a big pash in front of it or something!!!! :0)
