Bye Bye Singapore, Hello Thailand

Hey! Hope everyone is doing well. This blog will cover my last week in Singapore and my first day in Thailand. 
So for one of our last classes in Singapore we were shown how to make several Chinese dishes, and this duck along with a baby pig (-_-) was a victim. I normally don't consume baby animals, so I was a bit sad about the pig.

Here At Last!

First off, I had a great time in Los Angeles getting to spend time with friends and family. But, I was definitely eager to get to Melbourne. When I got to my gate at LAX, I met a few of the people in my program who were all so nice. When we boarded the plane, five minutes before take off, no one was in my row. I thought to myself, could I be this lucky again? But, within the next minute, a guy sat down. Shucks! Fortunately the seat in between us was empty though. I got to talking to the guy and funny enough he is from Melbourne, but planning on moving to Colorado. Such a small world we live in.

From Summer to Winter

As you may well know, it will be winter in Australia when I am there. This is because Australia is in the southern hemisphere, where the winter season begins on June 1st. Another fact is that Melbourne and Sydney are 16 hours ahead of mountain time. When alot of you are waking up for the morning, I will be going to sleep or already be sleeping that same day.

The Wonders of Singapore

Hello everyone! Sorry i'm a bit late with my post, but I've been having an action packed week with little room to even rest. Most of our mornings start at 6 am and from there it's off to school at At-Sunrice Academy, and whatever excursions that we have lined up for the day. We've been learning a lot of things about the history behind Singapore, and exploring new dishes!
