Camillopatra and Blake Anthony!

OK... you asked for more so here you go... I was online one night and saw that there was going to be a Murder Mystery Dinner Theater on Saturday night (with optional "Hollywood" dress)... you know I could not pass up the opportunity so I emailed our friends in hope to get a big group and sure enough... all 12 of us had a blast and everyone dressed up. Here is our Monterey Park Condo group... all of us live in the same condo... it was so funny bc none of the kids recognized us and were so shocked.

Neil and Leslie as Jack Black and his gypsy pirate woman.

Connie and Alan as well you know... and for Star Wars fans (as I hear) this is a sad sight to see these two together.

Martin and Jane as John Lennon and Cher.

Audry and Stephen as a Geisha and the Last Samurai.

Joni and Laurence as Bollywood stars.

Blake and Camille as Mark Anthony and Cleopatra.

The Murder Mystery was good... there was very little acting but the actors would walk around the crowd and help with clues... we had to figure out who and why was someone murdered (there was a total of 2 people). Our group did guess the right people and who did it but we did not win bc we did not put enough details on the paper... like how was someone poisoned, when, etc.? We will know for next time.

During the show they had random people read out lines in the play (bc we were extras) and at one point "Harry Potter" was given a script to read and the script was a proposal for his soon to be bride... it was so romantic and sweet... here is a pic of the couple after she said Yes.

Here is our whole table... oh what fun we had... we can't wait for the next one but we were thinking we might want to dress up a little more.

Blake Anthony and Camillopatra with no head dress.... man they gave us some headaches but it was worth it.

The show gave awards for best dressed... we won first place (shared with another table that came as Grey's Anatomy)... here is our curtain call and accepting our reward... white wine... where's the money and trophy?

After the show some of us could just not call it quits for the night... so we decided to hit the town all dressed up... we went down to Clark Quay to listen to a band and get starred at... we had alot of fun... never a dull moment with this crowd.

During the night alot of people wanted to take pics with us... as we were leaving Clark Quay we got one more pic with some new friends (some locals and two American military men on break)... they were a lovely group and we were honored to share our head dresses. What fun... We love Singapore and all the memories we are making.

This pic is for Ashley E. I thought of you the whole time while I was putting on my makeup... you inspired this creation... I knew you would be so proud of the smoky look... love you girl.

Tea Time!

Today (Saturday) we had a Spring Tea at church... it is a great outreach program to bring friends and just a great time to fellowship. Alot of the moms brought their daughters to share in the fun. I had alot of fun with my lady friends... I left Blake and Pierce at home.

Here is a just a shot of all the ladies... and you will see some men in the pic bc they were the servers.

Our speaker came from Bali where she teaches dance as a form of therapy for special needs children. She gave a wonderful talk and afterwards performed a spiritual dance for us... it was very moving and brought tears to my eyes.

I had originally planned to just come to the tea, get some great food, hear a talk and have some good girl time... but during bible study one week one of my friends who was putting the tea together slid me a piece of paper and told me to sign up... at the top of the page was Table Sponsors... this meant that you were in charge of setting up a table; place setting, decorations... the whole nine yards... since I had never been to a tea and do not own here in Singapore a place setting for 8 people I said that I could decorate if she found me some dishes... Well the rest is history... we found dishes and I found decorations.... so here is my table... the Asian Tea Party full of butterflies.

My make shift chandelier.... every tea party needs a chandelier... the next pics are just for my momma... I know she would want to see every detail of the table... so here you go mom... this one is for you.

The beautiful flowers... center pierce... I did not make this arrangement so I feel safe to go on and on about how beautiful this is... you can get orchids here in Singapore for .50 - .90 cents a stem (Singapore money... so that is like .20 - .70 a stem in US)... crazy cheap and so beautiful. I took the butterflies to the man who did this and he did exactly as I had imagined.... don't you just love it.

Here is the place setting...

Another shot of the table... oh what fun.

The next couple of tables were done by some other ladies... there were about 30 tables or so and some were done by one person and some were done by a team... they were all great and made a wonderful atmosphere... a great idea for more functions.

These were the ladies at my table... we had so much fun today... aren't they just beautiful?

Dance party at our house...

Valerie, Stan, Stephen and Scott (Stan's brother who is visiting from Texas) came over to our house last night to watch American Idol... during commercials we gave Scott the guitar and had a Dance Party (Pierce was the only one dancing)... you have got to see this... hilarious... he is definitely my son.

Scott is great and lots of fun... CLAIM TO FAME... are you ready... Scott use to be in the band with Billy Bob Thornton before he was famous in the showbiz world.

A good reminder of why I love Texas A&M so much!

Easter Care Package!

Thank you Grandma and Grandpa for our Easter Care Package.... Pierce will not stop playing with the bikes and bugs, carries them everywhere he roams (and I love my shoes).

We now get to have an Easter Egg hunt since we have some eggs to hunt for... maybe Easter in May... you know how good we are stretching holidays out...

Thanks so much and it is always good to get stuff from home.
You are loved and missed.

Aggie Muster... "Bradley R. Wims '97" - "Here"

We stood a little taller,
and a little prouder then
When we heard the call of Muster
and the Roll Call just begin.
We stood there all together
and wiped away the tears
When our names were called out softly
and answered with a “Here!”...
and so we’ve joined together
with our brothers of the past
To make our final resting place at
Aggieland our last.
We take a toast to our brotherhood
wherever they may roam,
For us the trek is over
Aggieland we’re coming home.
by Lt. Col. David Harrigan ‘68
Softly call the Muster,
Let comrade answer, "Here!"
Their spirits hover 'round us
As if to bring us cheer!
Mark them 'present' in our hearts.
We’ll meet some other day
There is no death, but life eternal
For our old friends such as they!

Roll Call for 2009

April 21st, 2009 there were approx. 40+ aggies that gathered at the American Club in Singapore to honor the fallen aggies this past year. Like the poem above "In Memoriam" we toasted in honor of them all.
It was a good way to celelbrate those whom we knew (Brad) and those whom we did not but with the same color of blood color maroon we will forever be one.

The Good news is that we know exactly where Brad is roaming (the poem says wherever they may roam)... the streets of Gold with Jesus.

To learn more about the tradition of MUSTER and what it means to Aggies go here.

A true Survivor!

My mom is a survivor...when she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer almost 9 years ago she made a decision (like most people) to fight the good fight... and she won. My mom is not only free from cancer but a well known Komen Tarrant County 1st place winner. This is her 8th time to win first place in the survivor division of the Komen Race for Cure in Tarrant County... she did it again this year... check out that trophy.

Mom you are my hero....I am so proud of you and what you have accomplished. I hope someday I can be as healthy as you, look as good as you do and maybe fit into a size 0 like you... some days I can't believe we have the same genes but I am honored to be your daughter... I love you and congratulations.

Is it too late????

As American citizens we are free to VOTE... even when residing in Singapore... BUT what does it mean when one gets their absentee ballot for the Nov. 2008 election in April 2009?

Fortunately I was in Texas so I was able to vote there but unfortunatly Blake was not able to vote seeing that we just got the forms 6 months to late...

But I plead.... is is to late... will our vote still count... we demand a re-count.

A hot day at the Zoo with Alex.

Monday Pierce's school was closed so Leslie and I packed up the kids and headed to the zoo here in Singapore... it is the most amazing zoo I have ever seen... it has a open concept and tons of things to do for the kids.

We were greeted at the main entrance by these monkeys... making lots of noises and playing around.

First we headed to the Rain Forest show to catch the action.

Here are the boys waiting for the show... I just think it is so cute how Pierce crosses his arm when he is trying to be patient.

Lesley and sweet Alex.

At the end of the show they brought out this guy... pretty cool costume... but looks to hot.
After the show we were approached by these two girls to take a picture with Pierce and Alex... Alex did not want anything of it but Pierce thought he could smile one more time (although he does look a little timid here)... this is very common in Asia... they just love Blond Hair blue eyed kids... alot of various families in Asia have pictures of Pierce in their photo albums.
We had to get a closer look... I like this picture too bc it shows how sweet my friend Lesley is to Pierce... she really is a sweet lady and a great mom.

After watching the show we headed to the water park that the zoo has... it is amazing and free once you get in the zoo.

Check this place out... isn't that cool.

Pierce thought it was pretty cool too.

After several attempts we tried to get the boys to slide down the slide together... one on one side and the other on the other... they both wanted to go down the same one... after several attempts this is as good as we could get... why do we do this to our kids...
After we got them dried off and had lunch we headed to see more animals... we are way past Pierce nap time but he is trying to work his little self out of taking naps so I thought I would let him enjoy his day and continue to play with Alex... so off we went to find some turtles...
We even got to feed some of them... they were huge but friendly and love apples.

The Keeper told us that we could get a picture up close and personal to this one... Pierce ran over there and threw his arm around her neck like he was putting her in a head lock... he is just not scared of anything... and she did not seem to mind.
