Our new home!

Well, after 25 hours of travel time, at least 14 of which I slept without medication, we made it to Singapore! After being spoiled with business class and bottomless mimosas, we arrived to our new home at Treetops, and were immediately handed spa vouchers. Basil has repeatedly emphasized that I should not get used to this lifestyle! It's going to be pretty hard considering we have daily complimentary breakfasts, which are filled with fresh fruits, pancakes, eggs, toast, any kind of cereal you want, and the list goes on..., a maid Monday through Saturday, laundry service, a spa one floor below us (extremely dangerous!), an indoor/outdoor gym, and a massive pool, where I am soaking up the sun and typing at this moment! So, I think it is safe to say Chevron takes pretty good care of its employees!

The last couple of months have been extremely exciting and also very emotional. Between our engagement and preparing for our new adventure and saying our goodbyes to family and friends, we are exhausted! It is nice to finally arrive and take a deep breath and relax! Well, I get to relax.... Basil went to work 6 hours after we landed!

Thank you to all of our friends and family who helped us celebrate this exciting time in our life! We miss you all already! We welcome anyone who wants to come visit!! It won't be the same if we cannot share this experience with our friends and family, so book your flights!

Contact Info: We still have our cell phones, so you can text us, but we cannot text back or receive calls because AT&T charges a ton(unless it's worth 50 cents to reply or $2.99 a minute to talk!). We purchased a magicJack so you can call us just like it's a local number. If our computers are off, it will take you to voicemail so leave a message and we'll call you back when we get on our computers. The number is 405.316.9709. We are 14 hours ahead, so the best time to call would be before 9 am or after 5 pm (US Time).

I am new to the 'blob' world, as my brother-in-law calls it, so bear with me as I figure out how to post everything! I will try to be consistent with weekly posts, but I can't promise that. Basil said he will be a 'guest' writer every once in a while, so hopefully he will help me keep you updated! Please stay in touch and keep us updated on your lives! We love you all!

Emily and Basil
