So much time has gone by since I last posted. As time went by, things got really busy in Singapore. What happened since I last posted ? Sooo much. Let me start.... We got engaged, Pino and Dri had a baby (little Joaquim my nephew), Gal and Edgar(in laws) came to visit, Mila started kiting for real, we are moving away from Singapore, I got the Lead FX title at work, cloneWars will start on Cartoon Network with one of our episodes on October 3rd on the US, I got to meet George Lucas... that's the short for all that happened.
Mila and I will be getting married in Salvador in 2009. We are super happy about it. We are planning to tie the knot in january 11. We got engaged a few months ago on our 3 year aniversary dinner. We had dinner on a golf Course in Sentosa and went for a walk after it with the full moon in a golf course with a sea view. I got in my knees and did the right thing. =)
We both quit our current jobs as we decided it was time to move on from Singapore. I am thinking I want to freelance for a bit before taking another full time gig. Singapore experience was SOOOO NICE. We saw so many cool places, met with new cultures and some amazing people along the way. It was a big lesson about life really. About everything from history, to work, to politics and to parnership and love. I enjoyed it so much and do not regret for a second having been here. We are planning for a trip to Europe for a couple months before going to our next stop. We shall see where the wind blows us.
A few things made us take the step to move on. Life has become very expensive here. We have seen a cost of living increase by at least double to what it was when we got here. We have been here for 2.5 years and it was past our due date for what we came here for. It's too far from home and I have been away for 10 years now. We worked a LOT here, sometimes more than what we wanted and we were both getting burnt out and needed a break bigger than what we could take while working for someone.
Lately we have been super busy as I am finishing the season for clone Wars and preparing the move (packing a LOT of boxes) and seeing a lot of details for the wedding.

Now it's time to say good bye for now or see you later, somewhere else, some other time. Hopefully I have some free time now to implement a blog on my website (www.sandrodisegni.com).
Sorry for my delays posting. It was not meant to be that way. Sorry for any posts that offended anyone. At last sorry to a lot of great people that we could not commit more time to spend with you. In retrospective I see that, during the time we spent here, we grew from being 2 people to being a real couple and for that we spent a lot of time on our own. It's not you... it's me. =D
At last I would like to THANK YOU ALL that made this experience in Singapore SO BIG and SO GREAT. Thanks for the lessons, the trips, the talks, the tips and the parties. I hope we keep in touch. We will really miss you all (friends, sailors, kiters and colleagues). There are even too many names to mention here. I actually started to make a list to thank but it got too big =).
Please keep in touch through skype, im, email, facebook, etc.
Cheers and see you hopefully soon.
