Hello December 2016

2 Dec 2016 –  Thanks & Farewell November


Tue: Happy 10thBday JohnW, the only one of my 6grandchildren born in SIN. Amazing that #3 has now also reached the age when he can count his age in 2digits!


That time of the year again!!! Things to be boxed and wrapped and things out of boxes to be placed – 1st Christmas lunch starting 8Dec. Could not find the Advent wreath and candles, probably gave them away and forgotten about it or to whom?? Will have to do without one!

cff338c45c_345x518_fd672c4d47Lulu The Movie***is a popular character from Michelle Chong’s comedy sketch show The Noose. Coming from mainland China, Lulu who used to be a KTV hostess now works in SIN.

The movie follows the adventure of Lulu who has a distinct Chinese accent trying to converse in English in SIN. The exaggerated and overemphasized of the accent can be more annoying than funny at times!


Wed: Happy Bday to cousin Chai in Toronto. 0900hrs appointment at MtE to get over with it. Shopping early to beat the crowds at Daiso@PlazaSIN for last minute Christmas mailing stuff and gift wrapping. Appreciations to Peggy for lunch at New Green Pasture Health Food Trading****@Fortune Centre, one of my favourite vegetarian places but the prices have also gone up!


Thu: do like the snow-furries in the blog for the holiday season! Today starts the countdown of Advent (decided to put up 2! ) and my calendar says Cảm ơn/Komomen (Vietnamese). Thankful to Aileen & Raymond for their help to get 2016 Season’s Greetings ready so that they can hopefully be in the snail-mail asap!


Fri: TGIF – yes yes yes burning the mid-night oil last night to get most of the greetings in the mail today and the village is in its place on the piano.


On to gift wrappings over the weekend and hopfully the creative ideas will just flow in, unlike the memory where things are flowing out, mis-placed or gone 🙂 But still நன்றி Nandei (Tamil) thankful to the beautiful and simple life in life – like the Bougainvillea which are found abundantly in SIN, on highways like the ECP, overhead bridges, etc…
