Mother Day 2015

10 May 2015 – Happy Mother’s Day To All Mothers

Sat: heading out to the Cub Scouts Camp, app 1hr drive west to be with John. Was asked to judge the four dessert dishes, chose the Pineapple Upside Down Cake to be the winner with the Marshmallow Cake for the runner-up.


John #3, my only grandchild born in SIN has a sweet and quiet disposition. Like his father, thinks before he acts and speaks. Has some resemblance to the actor Owen Wilson except that John is more handsome and that is coming from a subjective grandmother 🙂


Did not even realized that John has changed his uniform. Tkx Jeff for bringing my attention that John has now moved from the Wolf Den (yellow uniform) to the Bear Den (blue). Apologies John, plx excuse mormor’s ignorance about Boy Scouts and Cubs and thank you for explaining it to me. Pix not clear or bright enough being the first experience with night shots for this camera!



A beautiful evening with a lively group by the campfire. James was completely wiped-out.


Sun: Happy Mother’s Day greetings from USA to all mothers. To Linn​ & May​, thank you for making this life’s journey a beautiful worthwhile existence.



Morning Mother’s Day hugs from the family and John surprised me with a drawing, how touching and thoughtful. Church with the family and later a delicious grilled fresh lobster & salmon dinner at home. Tkx Linn for the Edible Arrangement, yummy and refreshing fruits with layer cake from Miri/Sarawak which was packed into the check-in luggage from Miri and then from SIN – CAE…


Get In The Pink 2015

10 May 2015 – Chilling With Linn & Family


Wed & Thu: just relaxing and enjoying the time reconnecting with the family. Amazing to know that after 10yrs, this will be Linn’s last month for picking up her kid from Union United Methodist Church Kindergarten&Pre-School. All the 5 USA grandchildren attended this school.


Fri: getting ready for John’s Cub Scout camp. Finally a chance to take family pix before Jeff and the 4 younger kids drove off for the evening.


John getting ready with his uniform. James is all Gator thru’&thru’ in his training wheels 🙂 and Zuno hoping desperately that he could go with the kids!



A lovely evening with Linn, Katy and Zuno playing fetch on Lake Murray. Times like these need few words. Every moments are precious.


Sat: up bright and early for Linn’s ‘Get in the Pink’ 10k RR.




Katy & I had a lovely walk in this beautiful CAE neighbourhood on Devine St with nice big trees where there were at least 4 churches on this stretch of road!


Congratulations to Linn for her 3rd overall placing – she is not too happy with her times, 44+mins but still won US$100.


It is Mother’s Day in SIN, my birthplace. Thank you to my mother TSENG MayLan (1911-1965). Gone but never forgotten. Pix from 1955, 1960 and 1965, when she was struggling with cancer and the last pix of her alive.
