26 Jan 2012 – with a Long-Lost Friend!
Wed: the last time Tony crossed my path was in Dublin/Ireland in the early 1970s. Delighted to see him after all these years. An early morning walk on the East Coast with take-out breakfast and then back to my flat to exchange more news and pix. He has been living and has his own business in Melbourne/Australia since the 1970s. Now visiting his mom (over 90yrs) who lives down the road. Tony is the bro of Kitty who was here recently visiting from Africa and whom I have not seen since 1968!
Later met with cousin Wilki & Patty for mutton soap@Tekka Centre, Little India with the best Indian mutton soup filled with cholesterol 🙂
Was so tried that the eyes could not stay open while waiting for Clem. He was so surprised to have to wake me at a bench for our dinner. Pho Hoa Vietnamese***@Suntec hit the spot for the craving of soup. The snooze was needed to be able to have an enjoyable dinner.
Thu: met up with Grace for lunch@The Food Place/City Hall to hear and check out her pix from her month hike on the AT/for the NH & ME sections. Bought back such lovely memories. Tkx Grace for sharing. We will hike the Park Connectors & Green Corridor in SIN when they are completed…
Carrying info, pix, etc from the ancestral hall and house in China to share with Wilki & Patty@Pearl Bank. Tkx cousin for the crabs and durians, king of fruits! Until our paths cross again, safe trip back to HI/USA.
CNY is about yummy food, catching up with family and friends from here there everywhere… that is what makes CNY so special!
