Hello from Singapore! August has been a big month of travel for me -- starting with a trip to Perth for work, a wonderful visit to the Gold Coast for the RWA Australia conference, and, now, a short trip to Singapore. I often joke that I'll do anything to escape Melbourne's chilly winter, but this is getting ridiculous!
|Me and Hugh and Zoe|
at Balthazar wine bar!
Perth was a primarily for work, but my second SuperRomance, In His Eyes, hit the shelves while I was over there. (In His Eyes was the Sunday Smooch this week -- don't forget to check it out!)
And when your second book is released, what's a girl to do but to head out for some celebration?
I found a gorgeous wine bar called Balthazar and had a lovely chat with the wine waiter about my wine choices. He ended up bringing me something that wasn't on the list -- a Spanish something-or-other -- and it was delicious. Just the thing to toast Hugh and Zoe!
Then it was home for a few days before heading to the Gold Coast. There are plenty of reports on line from the conference (including my own daily blog updates) so I won't go into too much detail, except to say that it was an amazing time. The organising committee deserve a big glass of champagne and then a nice lie-down for all the hard work they put in.
We managed to get a few of the LoveCats (but unfortunately not all who were there) together for a portrait on the night of the cocktail party which had the theme of fifties glamour.
|A few of the lovely LoveCats! (I hope Sharon doesn't mind me sharing the photo!)|
|G and I visited the foreshore food market|
and then wandered around taking in the view
of the amazing Marina Bay Sands.
|The light and sound show -- quite amazing!|
We've been pursuing most of the typical Singaporean delights - food and bars. :) But there's still plenty more to explore.
And G went to Little India today and had a gorgeous henna tattoo applied. I think I might want one of my own when the work stuff is done!

For those of you returning from RWA conference, I hope life has settled a little. And for those who didn't go away at all -- hope you are enjoying sleeping in your own beds! ;)
