20 Nov 2014 – Whampoa & No Touting!
Sun: tkx for dinner at sis Jo. Nice to chat with nieces Sue & Yas.
Tkx May for the pix of Olai 1st dental visit looking so lost – wish I could just give him a hug. Can sooo relate and understand that he does not want to open his mouth. Recalling his grand-uncle, Nils who ran off from the dentist chair at one time. And it took 4 grown-ups to hold me down for my 1st shot…!!
Mon: Wayang Boy***a family comedy about SINeans living amidst the influx of foreign immigrants. Caught in all the hoo-ha is an Indian boy – Raja who is new in SIN and he was brought to SIN by his Chinese stepmother. On his first day of school, Raja is branded ‘a foreign talent’ by the class bully. And thru’ the mayhem of the children’s multi-racial ‘wayang’ performance, everyone learns anew the meaning of living together as one united people, regardless of race, language or religion.
At Campers Corner to get some help from Chris to set up Power Point!
Tue: a rainy day. Met Gel & Mil coincidently at the congree stall at Marine T. Sad that this stall again will be closing down 🙁 On top of that to discover that Katong CHIJ/Marine Terr will be relocated for some years while this will be torn down to make way for bigger and higher buildings! Hope that the lovely tree will stay. First the TaoNan School on Marine Cres and now this. Surrounded by constructions and dust 🙁 🙁
Gel & Mil were there to help Mr & Mrs Lim to clear and sell off their stock by the end of the week. They have been selling school’s arts craft and stationery at this shop thru’ out Gel’s school years.
Tkx Mil for cutting my hair and appreciations to both Mil & Gel for a nice afternoon at their place and new discovery of another food joint – Whampoa. No touting!!!
According to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tout: a tout is any person who solicits business or employment in a persistent and annoying manner – another one added to the others SIN NOs signs but how would to this is a signage without words??
Wed: deadly snowstorm up to 12′ of snow hits US NorthEast with fatalities. To those who are affected in these areas, plx stay safe! Pix credits for the weather to various news sites.
