21 Dec 2015 – Last Weekend Before Christmas
Sat: Catching up with bro Steven’s lovely family. Tkx to sis-in-law PohKit, nieces Judy, Daisy, nephews Vince&Annie, Clem, grandnephews Stanley, Darrly and Andrew for including me in their family lunch. First time at New Lucky Claypot Rice****#02-19, Holland Drive Market & Food Centre. Yummy.
Stumbled upon this beautiful location and set-up on 42 Waterloo St after a gathering at CC last night. If my memory serves me correctly, this used to be Action Theater, a delightful small play-house, restaurant and an alfresco bar. Now Centre 42 with intentions to be a focal point for incubation of new works, nurturing of playwright talents, research and discourse of SIN theatre.
Sun: 4th Sunday of Advent where Advent is a season observed in some Christian churches as a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of the Nativity of Jesus at Christmas. The term is a Latin word meaning ‘coming’.
In my Advent calendar today is Khob khun ka/Thai for the 24 languages of Thank you and no, I have not learnt them all yet!
Kiera’s little workshop has a delightful mini breakfast on the tray with all kinds of toasts and chocolate donuts the size of a 5cent coin. Mud-Rock is an interesting ceramic studio located at 126 Towner Rd. The taxi driver who drove Ivy and I there must be one of the most annoying drivers I have encountered – he kept sighing and yawning aloud! and budding in our conversation.
Good to catch up with Michelle at Aveson Travel at Tanglin Mall.
La Ventana****at Dempsey Rd serves up tasteful Catalonian small plates. With LesIvy’s wines, nothing can go wrong where F&B are concerned.Tkx for a lovely evening.
Good to meet up with Korean friends Mejin&Jung. Interesting place own by another Korean serving Spanish food.
