18 Mar 2012 – a Bundle of Joy arrived!
Happy Happy Bday to my first-born, Linn who has brought so much joys in life’s journey and still continuing to do so. Born the day after St Patrick’s Day in Dublin/Ireland and moved to Norway when she was only 4 months. Then another move to the USA when she was 11yrs. Not easy to have to deal with these moves but she has graciously made the best of both worlds and has developed into the amazing person as she is meant to be.
Thank you to a wonderful & beautiful (in everyways) daughter who has made a proud mother, mother-in-law and grandmother of me. Today a mother of 5 lovely children (3 girls & 2 boys) and my hat off to her!

Started the day with visiting niece PatLynn and grandniece Beth@Mt Elizabeth Hospital. Both mother and baby are well and of course Beth is as cute as a button. Thanks for lunch SueLynn in good company of Ivy. Apologies, had to rush to get to the parade in time.
Only a handful of the IGAS/Irish Graduates Association of SIN members were present and the IGAS banner was missing. Appreciations to CH for the good company, support and for taking pix (pix credits of Carmel, Min & I goes to CH). Thank goodness it was not raining during the parade but it poured down buckets after most have found their ways to the pubs! Cleared again during the Irish dance performance to a lovely cool evening.
Begorra! even the Irish community in SIN is having a parade today for Linn 🙂
Another Irish joke to complete the celebrations…
An Irishman and an American were sitting in the bar at Shannon Airport.
‘I’ve come to meet my brother,” said the Irishman. “He’s due to fly in from America in an hour’s time. It’s his first trip home in forty years’.
‘Will you be able to recognize him?’ asked the American.
‘I’m sure I won’t,’ said the Irishman, ‘after all, he’s been away for a long time’.
‘I wonder if he’ll recognize you?’ said the American.
‘Of course he will,’ said the Irishman. ‘Sure, an’ I haven’t been away at all’
