I felt tired this morning so stayed in and didn’t even go for breakfast. Hot dam! It was probably my last chance to enjoy a bowl of muesli unless we have time before our departure in Singapore tomorrow morning.
I’m going to
have to start packing up sometime today and it’s going to be a big job. I just
hope i can get everything in to my suitcase!
I went for lunch in the buffet
and then browsed the 50% off jewellery and the ring i had admired a few days ago
was gone but i spotted another one i liked so i bought it before it
Now, at 3p.m. I still haven’t done any packing but Annie has
hers all pretty much done in her big suitcase and she’s now working on packing
her carry- on. When she’s done i’ll start on mine cuz this room isn't nearly
big enough for both to pack at the same time.
So i went to the cruise
employees talent show and i was wowed by the talents that some of them have.
There were beautiful singers, guitar players and gymnast/dancers as well as hip
hop and they all looked happy and energetic after finishing up their jobs for
After the show i dropped in to the casino and while things were
hopping in there for others while i was a very fast loser so got out ASAP and
returned to the room to start packing. What a job after being away for 33 days
and then with 3 days in Singapore before flying home i had to give it some
serious thought to keep out the things i’d want and need for the 3 days plus
something warm to wear on the plane home. Vancouver can be cold in October but i
think my hubby will bring my coat when he comes to pick me up and hopefully have
the car all warmed up.
After my dinner in the buffet i wandered back into the
casino mainly to get my rewards points. I had no idea how they’re earned or what
they were worth so i got my favourite little attendant girl to show me how
to do it on a slot machine. I had earned the huge sum of $6.55 which seemed way
too little but wth i’m not a big time spender and played mostly only penny machines so
it was something. I played it off and didn’t win a thing using those points.
I’ve heard that players can get a free cruise using their player points but wow, i
bet you’d have to spend an awful lot to get that prize.
I then went to
the evening stage show of female singers, one was a trio and the other from
Australia sang solo. The music was good but again found it was so loud it
hurt my ears.
I then returned to the cabin and finished my packing and my
suitcase weighs a ton now. I then put it outside my door for the crew to pick it
up sometime tonight and take it out to the terminal where i’ll retrieve it once
off the ship. The time for us to leave is 8:15a.m. but usually the actual time of departure is always delayed. All 2400 passengers will be departing so I know it's going to take quite awhile!
Omgosh I have left my blog in such a mess because of messing up with dates on my pics as well as wrong dates on the posts that i wrote. I just discovered there's no such day as Oct 20 so lets just call this Oct 21 because I don't feel like trying to unravel all the mysteries. I am sorry because i know a lot of nice pics have gone astray as well. Somehow i've got double entries for a couple of days but neither is very interesting so i'll just let them go as it's painful trying to figure out wth happened.
So it's been either feast or famine but here's some of the pics from the visit to Ko Samui a couple days ago.
