The Ming Behind The Making of The Movie Country #11- Pillows and Toast Heritage Hostel, Singapore
So, you may have seen our Country #11 video. It was one cool movie full of positive energy and love. But did you know that while I sat in the a/c working the computer, that Ming ran around in the streets with my three angels and Daniel to get most of the footage? Yeah, no one knew, until now. They went from store to store asking people to say ‘country eleven.’ They got shooed out of a couple of stores and got yelled at once (which Solai later explained to me is where Ming explained to them that not all Singaporeans are so nice). But, most of the time, they were hugged, cuddled, pet, and fed by perfectly beautiful strangers in the street.
Following are some of the 11 pictures that didn’t make the final cut into the movie. Again, know that it’s Ming behind the ingenuity and amazing energy of this video, and a lot of other things like redeeming mom from eating all the chocolate she brought for the kids that one late night. Enjoy the pics, and know that I have no doubt that this one is an angel. No doubt. A fun one at that. You get near her and can feel the angel dust tickling your nose. (Seriously, look back at that first pic, you can see it, can’t you?)
So here is the movie again, now, see it from the light glow of an angel who embraced our kids with incredible love and a sense of undying adventure.
Any thoughts about love? Hostels? Ming? Share away. We’re here, listening intently.
Again, we appreciate the invitation for accommodations, but them going far beyond the call of duty and acting like grandparents, the opinions expressed here, and the damn falling in love part are ours alone. As we share our Pillows and Toast experiences in the coming months, you will be able to find all of their posts by searching for “Pillows and Toast.”
Yes, we’re not here right now. Yes, Singapore was four countries ago. Yes, we’re currently hiking the Annapurna Circuit with the best The Nomadic Family Project film crew in the world. We love you! Gabi
We’re determined to inspire others to lead the lives they are meant to. The Saving For A Dream e-book is your first step towards making that dream come true. It is also a kind, generous donation from you to help us continue our voyage.
So, buy it for yourself or a friend.
