Was totally impressed watching Annie with her glass-beaded handcraft, blessed to be presented with with one of her exquisite necklaces a few days ago.

The SuperMoon finally showed its face tonight high above but besides being big and bright, not sure as to where and how super it is? Perhaps the city lights overwhelmed the natural super part of it…

Wed: breakfast with a view@Club55 MBS Hotel with a view to East Coast Pk and thinking about the 7k walk by the sea! Good smoked-salmon.

Thu: breakfast@Adrift MBS Hotel. Smoked-salmon here not as good as Club55. Laksa and dim-sum OK, but quite a novelty way to serve honey!

More maternal cousins for Yun to catch up with and after such a breakfast, could only handle a few spoonfuls of mango-pudding. If I continue eating like there is no tomorrow, there will be to tomorrow. Yun is heading to the Gardens with Emily while I head back to MBS to update here.

And I find chopsticks frankly distressing. Am I alone in thinking it odd that a people ingenious enough to invent paper, gunpowder, kites and any number of other useful objects, and who have a noble history extending back 3,000 years haven’t yet worked out that a pair of knitting needles is no way to capture food? ~Bill Bryson
