Hello guys!

HAPPY NEW YEAR SINGAPORE!
I'm currently in Istanbul where there's five more hours to go. But we are currently taking a rest before going out for some new year festivities.
We've been in Istanbul for four days, and it's a great city to be in. There's a lot to see and do. And the food is amazing. There is kebabs, kebabs, and more kebabs. Life is great. We are consuming on average three kebabs a day. Life is great.
There's also lots of turkish coffee, turkish tea, and turkish ice cream. Life is great.
And SHISHA IS LEGAL HERE. CHECK IT OUT.
There aren't so many tourists at this time of the year because the weather isn't warm and sunny, but we're doing okay. Mainly because James passes me his ski coat because he's alright with what he terms as "standard British weather".
(I am saving my HEATTECH for Capadoccia).

Also I would like to add that my cold is not due to wearing insufficient clothing articles. I've been wearing a reasonable amount of clothing. Check out what I wore the other day (head scarf and skirt courtesy of the Blue Mosque).
Most angmohs just threw the scarves over their heads. BUT NOT ME. I imagined my tudung-wearing friends and tried to fashion a realistic tudung for myself to the best of my ability. I think I did pretty well.

Yeah so there are many places to see, and the public transport is really decent. It's been a blast!
The Hagia Sophia.
Harem at Topkap─▒ Palace.
Jac, "Wah like Santorini!"

Sepet├žiler Palace.
Cruise along the Bosphorus.

So Istanbul is really happening and we're really excited to watch fireworks go off over the Bosphorus later. But you know, if this doesn't sound appealing to you at all, then well. Not to fear. There's something for everyone here in Istanbul. You can join the fishermen over the Bosphorus Bridge. They are there 24/7. Rain or shine. New Year's Eve or not.
Anyway! Hope you have a wonderful new year celebration going on, and have a wonderful year ahead! Meanwhile, here's a song that James and I heard in a great cocktail bar.


Okay! Off to the bar now! Happy new year guys!
❤ Jac.
