Laura had been posting on Facebook about missing HEB Guacamole so we invited her family & Minsue's family up for Mexican night (we also made fresh tortilla chips with the corn tortillas that Scott sent us). After dinner we walked over to SAS to enjoy the Fourth of July celebration. Laura is Darcie's friend (Minsue & I know Darcie from Korea; Laura knows Darcie from Texas) and just moved to Singapore a few weeks ago. It is a small world!
It's lucky that Anita, Brian, & Corrine came and left when they did: we have had terrible air quality due to the fires in Indonesia (man-made--slashing & burning of crops for the palm oil plantations). The wind is blowing the smoke right over Singapore and we are stuck inside. Thankfully the kids are content to play at home although I am going a little stir-crazy (and I'm not getting any training in for my triathlon coming up in August!). The haze could continue this way for days, weeks, or even months. Apparently this happens every year but this is the worst haze Singapore has experienced in a very long time.
