Our breakfast this 9deg November morning

Cheese egg bacon burger! The most decent-looking I've managed to ruse up thus far.

Hubby lived like a bachelor-style when Jingheng and me were in SG – clothes fresh from dryer strewn on the couch, feasting on soda crackers for breakfast on weekends till they’re long gone and the biscuit box remained in the living room etc. He said, “no one pamper me”.

He wanted bread with cheese for breakfast this morning, and so I decided to make an extra-nice cheese burger for the guy. When he saw the plate, he actually said “Wah, I only wanted bread with cheese, why so complicated?”.


Luckily, he also said, “This is very nice”. And chomped down the whole thing.

On the other hand, my son decided that the burger should be eaten not as a whole, but by the individual pieces. And so the bacon were the first the disappear. Then he thought it wasn’t tasty enough, so he smeared on his own yoghurt spread. 阿公阿嬷公公婆婆,看我吃早餐!

Breakfast is gone, and it’s lunch time now. We GOTTA go out shopping, only because Jingheng is down to his very last diaper now on his butt. Go go go!


Tumbling with the balls

Mummy brought me to tumble in these small balls before, but I didn’t really like them. The immense quantity. Two I can handle with finesse, four easily, six pretty fun. But a whole tub of them, no no. Maybe they appear larger than life because I was still a puny baby with lotus roots arms.

I must have grown up because they seem smaller even though they are so many of them. And they make such wonderful cushions for falling onto! I grew more and more confident as I lunged into them from further distances!

More balls please?

Oh, it’s Children’s Day 2011!

Spent a wonderful afternoon lunching French fare al fresco at Flo Brasserie in the Italian Style Town. Beautiful blue sky, cool weather of 18deg, yummy food and really tasty dessert, good service, clean toilets… heavenly!

Strolled around the art and craft bazaar after lunch, and then realised it’s Children’s Day today. Totally forgot because it is not today over here. Jingheng had 2 gifts: a 喜羊羊 balloon and a long gaze through the metal gate at some clucking hens and cocks in someone’s garden.

Happy Children’s Day kids!

The Little Nyonya

Always heartwarming to see familiar faces when you are away from home.

Ng Hui, Joanne Peh, Pierre Png, Ou Xuan (I don’t dig your acting, but hey it’s still nice to see you) etc, thank you for appearing on my home TV. I really love the nyonya dresses, very becoming.

Liaoning cable (辽宁卫视), thank you for not dubbing over with your proper Chinese speech and lingo so that I get to hear the Singapore Mandarin right here way up north.

2 years late for chasing this super hot drama (slow again!), and I’m deserting my motherly duties of cooking lunch for Jingheng to chase the tribulations of Yue Niang. If not now, then when? 🙂

Oh wait! I don’t have to desert my motherly duties! I can turn my TV and watch while stirring the pot. Yay!
