23 Feb 2014 – Food Poisoning!

Nebraska****after receiving a sweepstakes letter in the mail, a cantankerous father thinks he’s struck it rich, and wrangles his son into taking a road trip to claim the fortune.  Shot in black and white across four states, Nebraska tells the stories of family life in the heartland of America…
Plans for driving to Montana this summer and wanted to see what to kind of landscape to expect. Besides Mt Rushmore, not too exciting scenery, easier to focus on the interactions of the different characters who did a pretty good job to portray the life in the American wheat-belt! Fantastic cinematography and a well-told story of a bittersweet portrait of a family. Some young rude guy behind was obviously not enjoying the movie, he stormed out muttering what a waste of money and time. Each to their own…

Fri: dental & medical check-ups, the dental bit went OK but some problems on the medical side. That too shall pass. Met up with the Tays, their friends and some relatives for the afternoon. Candice amazed me by eating durian and even enjoyed it.


Was throwing up all evening. Thought it was the side-effect of the new medications. Later to discover that bro Leslie was having the runs and we had lunch together. The only thing we shared was a kaya toast at Toast Box across the street from Mt E. A report will be filed.


Sat: annual get-together at Glory with HongSze, Richard&Judy from Sydney. Could not eat but still had a lovely time with nice company. Drinks and fruits back where the world map is more or less in place to cover the book shelves! New furniture and new looks after nearly 15yrs!

Sun: feeling tired; rest rest rest as more tests at Mt E await tomorrow…

The dessert, properly prepared, contributes equally to health and comfort; but ‘got up’ as confectionary too often is, it is not only distasteful to a correct palate, but is deleterious and often actually poisonous – The Complete Confectioner, Pastry-Cook, and Baker
