Lunch with Hong and tkx for the ride in his rizzi red Mercedes-Benz into town. Always nice to catch up with Hong to exchange the latest news and to hear what he has been and is up to.
He, like me leads an active interesting life and it is good to trade travel experiences.
Great to finally meet Sean Collum, and what an amazing job he has done for the ONG, sis-in-law, Mabel family tree so far. Impressive with all the names up to 3generations back. He is requesting for info regarding to some missing names here that he is still researching for.
Belated Bday dinner with Clem@Chin Chin Hainanese Chicken Rice****Purvis St and a Minion ice-cream cone@McDonald for dessert which was surprisingly yummy.
Wed: tkx to Les&Ivy for lunch@DinTaiFung (Paragon)**** some of their signature dishes – FriedRice with Shrimps&Eggs虾仁蛋饭 SteamedPork Dumplings 小笼包 SteamedChicken Soup元盅鸡汤 are some my favourties.
Wine from Les’s cellar – have tired the Kistler white, but the is the first red for me, perfect with the lunch.
Delighted to hear about Kiera’s debate in Vietnam, good enough for the next round in the US in Nov. Yeah Kiera, way to go. Just in time to stay dry after getting off the bus and walking to the elevator, the sky opened up and poured buckets. Enjoying the cooler weathers and the sounds of the downpours.
Appreciations for dinner@sis Jo’s. Good catching up with Sue&Michael. Lovely short evening walk after the rains.
Thu: lunch@Crossing Café****had the ChilliCrabPasta, it was tasty and the cappuccino froth-designed was inviting for the eyes and the palate. This location offers affordable quality food with all profits going to charity. The previous visit for Fish&Chips was also a good visit. Will return to try another new dish. Tkx for good company Aileen.
Appreciations to Heather Barrie for the invitation to her Fine Palate-Catering-Events-Cafe-PrivateDining business and info for the Aerospring Garden Pole. Would like to have one of those poles when the time for one is ready!

Lovely morning with my coffee soaking in the ‘chi’, watching the sun trying to penetrate thru’ the clouds and enjoying the activities around@ECPark. A busy morning for the planes – so glad that I’m not on any of them! Hopefully there is enough energy to go back to the paperwork for the day before the busy schedule for this weekend. A good weekend to all.
