thedelhibells Singapore aka honeymoon part 4

My husband & I left for Singapore the next morning after breakfast. We lost a couple of hours to the time difference, so by the time we landed it was already dark. The 2 hour flight delay didn’t help either. We reached our hotel at 11.30 pm, tired and hungry. So I quickly ordered for dinner in the room, and while we unpacked for the 3rd & last time on this trip, I made it amply clear to my husband that I wouldn’t be able to (read: flat our refused to) get ready at 8 am the next morning for the city tour. It may also have had something to do with the fact that I’d visited Singapore on a family vacation many years ago, so I decided I’d rather sleep in than end the honeymoon on an exhausted note.

Winner of the $159 BattleTrip Giveaway Announced!

First of all, thank you to everyone who participated in the very first giveaway ever on thedelhibride – all 24 of you! 🙂 That includes the boys!

Some of you shared such personal details about your love life, about making it through long-distance relationships and about honeymoons that were never taken when they should’ve been. I’m amazed at how much each and everyone of you has gone through, all in the name of love! Love really does make the world go ’round, hunh?

Nevertheless, there can be only one winner. I was looking for someone who really needed the helper, who would benefit most from getting BattleTrip to create a custom-made trip for them.

As I narrowed down my list to 7 potential people who could win, I had a hard time choosing the final one. When I finally did, I realised she’s the fiancee of one of the remaining 6 on that list!
And her name is Continue reading “Winner of the $159 BattleTrip Giveaway Announced!”
