16 Dec 2015 – From The Best Of Both Worlds…

Mon: Health Promotion Board sent some info regarding Health Behaviour Study Of SIN in my absence. Found 2 more notes on my door upon my return. Since they were showing that much interest to contact me, decided to contact them and ask what it was all about.

Turned out that they want me to take a survey with health questions. Was pleasantly surprised with a NTUC Fair Price S$10 voucher for taking the survey ๐Ÿ™‚

Found some cardboard cut-out Christmas trees (S$1.50) for 10pieces and a red paper gift-bag (S$2) from Cat Socrates. Probably no one realized that it is written in Norwegian that ‘Money should not be enclosed in letters’. From Art Friend’s, the cute tiny wooden trees (S$6.85) when stuck on the cardboard ones give a lovely 3D effect. Good for decorations or gift-tags. Most satisfied with this purchase!

Picked up the rest of the Christmas gifts and more or less done with shopping – yeah. Now to wrap them as best as I know how and then to present them. The working area is a slight improvement as compared to a few days ago! Blog postings edited and updated. Time to catch up with friends and getting ready to say goodbye to 2015…

Tue: Appreciations to Carmel for taking time to have breakfast with me at Killiney Siglap***It takes an Irish to find good MeeSiam here in SIN ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

An interesting share from May. I remember when L&M questioning their identity and my reply has always been and still is that they have been blessed with the best of both worlds and it is up to them to live their life to the fullest. And today they both make me proud to be their mother and grandmother to their children…

I never understood how little I understood race until I tried to explain to my 5-year-old-son…

Tkx to Ting&CH for taking time to catch up. Appetite is not as it used to be, but still good tasting broth which is the secret of this dish.

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities – Dr. Seuss
