Fri: Good Friday – safe and sound back in SIN after a nice break. Glad to be able to catch up with Lawrence who was visiting for a few days and taking off tomorrow. Appreciations to Les&Ivy for dinner@Tanglin Club. Yummy to taste a good tender lamb Irish Strew – had the beef one on Paddy’s Day which is not so traditional as the lamb!

Sat: a rest day needed and also have not been sleeping too well with a problem-tooth 😦 Still hoping that it will pass but know that this will not be the case and have stopped one of my meds in anticipation that it will have to go. Ivy got baptized tonight but did not attend, remembering how I nearly fainted in the crowds and heat when Lawrence, Mabel and Chuan was baptized in KCH Apr 2011

Sun: Happy Easter Sunday, the holiness day for the Christians. Found some old pix bringing fond memories of Easters past! Pix 2005 SC/USA with Katy and new-born Ellie. 1989 FL/USA with L&M and Claire’s during her sky-dive days. Without the grandchildren around, no need to hide eggs 🙂

So nice to catch up with Ivy’s cousin Irene and her family, David and Cindy who were visiting for the Easter weekend. Thank you to Les&Ivy for Easter dinner at La Ventana****With Les’s Spanish vines to compliment the food, no more words needed but just to savour every moment for a wonderful evening with family and friends.

Mon: after such a savoury week and weekend, the week started with a visit to the dentist and was prepared for the worst! The infected tooth had to go and has been giving me problems over the years. A walk-in patient at NDC and after 2hrs wait + a few minutes with a good young handsome dentist 🙂 another tooth gone, S$150 poorer is again another reminder to enjoy every moment while there are still teeth 🙂 🙂

Beautiful blue sky on bus196 after the dentist. Major constructions on-going at and around the Outram MRT. Those driving in this area, drive with care.

Tue: back to daily normal meds. Soups and soft foods are in the menu for the next few days. No worries, have cooked ready some yummy things to be put into the blender and pumpkin soup is one of my favourties.
