  • Lastly but not the least, we left Singapore in tired yet happy tummies. Thanks to God as trip was truly full of blessed; also, we left in the morning before Mount Agung was erupted, and the airport’s already opened when we got home. Thanks for Lala and little one who’ve been good *almost* all the time. Lala said, “I like Singapore and don’t want to go home yet”. Four days are certainly too short, so we’ll be back next time!
