I am back in the warm embrace of my little island. No complaints as of yet. The heat is bearable and no mosquito bites! : ) Paul picked me up from the airport yesterday around 8PM and then we had dinner at an upscale Japanese restaurant. Unpacked as soon as I got home and took a much needed shower. I was as filthy as can be. I miss home but I’m glad to be with my fiance. I missed him. He missed me more it seems. : P I’ll be going back to work on Monday so I’m glad I have the weekend to re-group. I managed to sleep for over 10 hours today! : )
But before I left, my mom and I had a whole day to ourselves last Thursday. Since I wasn’t working on Thursday due to it being a national island holiday, I asked my mom if she can ditch work and play with me instead. Hehe. >: ) We went to Seafood Town for a early lunch – their lunch specials are amazing! Everything is under $9.00 and so many things are on the house!
Afterwards, we went to the South Coast Botanic Gardens for a light stroll. We were initially checking it out to see if I would be able to take my engagement photos here. However, I was able to tell that it wasn’t what I was looking for. It’s lovely but it was much too small for what I was imagining. My mom and I still had a good time. I think my mom’s love for flowers rubbed off on me. I love hanging out with her. I wish I went on more dates with her while I was at home. : (
Afterwards, we went to Costco and got ourselves some yummy churros and a berry smoothie. My mom likes the smoothie but I find it too artificially sweetened.
