App 3,500k, 5mill steps, 127days, 14 US states = One AT Thru’Hike 🙂

Fri: early appointment at NDC. Later at Changi Airport T2 to meet Lawrence arriving from KCH. Had lunch with him at the airport before heading to Les&Ivy.

Sat: Happy Valentine’s Day, a card for Linn&May and one for me 🙂 🙂 Did NOT wish and want to be out in the crowds and traffic on this day, also the last weekend of shopping for the CNY. Got a message from Ivy telling me that the crowds and traffic are horrendous. Just stayed indoors and relax chatting with family and friends on Skype. Nice to catch up.

Sun: Happy Birthday to god-daughter Guri in Norway and condolences to the Stenseth family for the passing of Anne Stenseth Sr. May she RIP.

13aw-articleLarge[1]Tkx May & Irene for sharing this interesting link. My comments –

Many of the mainland Chinese here and HKG too are not well received for good reasons, not because of race. I considered myself Chinese of race but Singaporean by birth and multicultural in thoughts.

Brought Malay breakfast over to Les&Ivy for their Korean guests, Mr&Mrs Kim and their lovely daughter HaeKyung. Nasi Lemak is familiar to most of us local but this savory snack Kui Bakar Berlauk is new to me, quite good, all that from the local Marine Terrace stall***

Tkx to nieces Judy&Daisy, nephews Vince&Clem and grand-nephews Stanley, Andrew and Darryl from bro Steven’s branch for including me to their reunion at Tiong Bahru Por Kee Eating House***Such a coincidence that 10&16aunts, 17uncle, cousins ChengChwab&Amy, Wilkie&Pattie/visitingfrom HI/USA, Sara, Wilson and Jason were also there.

Tkx to cousin Wilki for delicious durian treat in Chinatown. If the eating continues at this rate, it will be difficult for the heart to keep beating and pumping blood and I will only have myself to blame…

To look backward for a while is to refresh the eye, to restore it, and to render it the more fit for its prime function of looking forward – Margaret Fairless Barber, The Roadmender

  1. Thanks for your continuing missives! I have been quiet but appreciative. Time to change. Snowy here in Boston, with about 28 inches on level ground. That’s a lot.

    Wishing you All the Best!
