Right in the middle of Covid (linking to the Wikipedia article because 20 years from now this will be but a very distant reminder).
With all the lockdowns and travel restrictions, all our travel plans in 2020 (and most of 2021) were cancelled (yes, I book flights sometimes a year in advance). Trips to Paris, Portugal and Stockholm were cancelled, as well as the regular visits to Belgium.
This meant we had to celebrate Christmas in Singapore (and Christmas in Singapore isn’t very… Fun — the vibe is really missing, and it’s way too hot). Everything here feels rather fake, and Christmas is truly just to buy shit you don’t need. Nonetheless, we did our best with a small (and illegal) assembly, playing board games and enjoying some finger food.
In the card, still only Tofu, Taro, Shan and me — although Mumu (our 3rd cat) was roughly 6 weeks old by that time. More about him in tomorrow’s post.
