Sat: condolences to Pat & family for the passing of their father (93) and was told that their mother (85) passed away 4 months ago too. Managed to attend the funeral mass at St Teresa’s Church and the last time there was in 1961 where I was a student at St Teresa’s Convent then!

1455941_554537044628102_324397489_nThank you to Carmel&Soon for including me at their table for this annual SIN Ireland fund-raising function held at the St Regis. The theme this year is the Gatsby Gala with the McNally Pipers piping us into a night of glitz & glamour to a tasteful 5 course dinner with champagne, wine, Irish whisky etc. Followed by auctions and ending with dancing.

Sun: thank you to all who were there to support in one way or other, Audrey, Ting, CH, Carmel, Mica, Henry and Sue. It was a fun & educational experience to participate in a SIN heartlands’ Flea Market! — at Marine Crescent Gardens 2013 Flea Market.

Appreciations to Les&Ivy for a fusion dinner at KU DÉ TA*** on the 57th floor of MBS. OK food but usually when one is dinning al fresco on the 57th floor, the weather is important too and we had the sea view. It was a beautiful evening with May&Lock, Patrica and Kierra.

Thank you to cousin ChongWah & family for a gathering of 4 generations to an excellent dinner. Started in 1978, Beng Hiang Restaurant****at Amoy St has since established itself as one of the best Hokkien restaurants in SIN. The sucking pig is one of those die die must try! Niece AiLing will have to provide the names of this branch of the family!
