Hello Yasmine & Andrew

7 Nov 2014 – A Week Of Sewing On & Off

Wed: hello Evelyn (Linda’s sister), appreciate your input for The Enchanter Forest outfit and tkx for showing me her lovely apartment, 4 floors above me and the only unit apart from my that I have been into in this block.

Hopefully she will figure out what to do about the wood-worm problem and best if she can rid them in some ways or other.


IMG_6156Welcome back to SIN niece Yasmine and her English hubby Andrew who is visiting me for the first time in my HBD. Thought he might enjoy dinner downstairs with our Marine T heartlanders! Andrew 6’3″ is as tall as Neil Humphreys (the only English writer I know of who has lived in a HDB!) and the monkey-bars in the play cum exercise grounds are not somewhere for him or Neil to hang on without bending their knees 🙂



Thu: thank you Pat for a lovely dinner of home-made popiah, congee, herbal omelette and desserts by Angela –  tasteful fish jelly, fresh fruits cocktail, etc. Pat is good with her organic cooking and it does taste sooo much better.

It is supposed to be filmed in UK, but somehow the scene when Rosie’s father was working in a hotel and that hotel sure looks like The Shelborne in Dublin/Ireland!!

 Fri: dress for The Enchanted Forest Charity Ball has to be completed by the end of today. The rains in the afternoons started a few days ago not just light showers but pouring cats and dogs. It is much more pleasant than the haze and heat. Been out walking with a big umbrella and enjoying every minute of it…

You push and I’ll pelt.
They so smote the garden bed
That the flowers actually knelt,
And lay lodged–though not dead.
I know how the flowers felt – Robert Frost
