1 Dec 2017 – That Time Of The Year
Mon: and so it is that time of the year to get the Christmas decorations, etc out – checking and repairing whatever needs to be repaired before they go on display.
The theme this year is White Christmas, matching Orchard Rd! as I am too lazy to get out the whole village of dolls. The host of angels stay and do feel the need for their protection now, more so than than other years. Dinner@Jo’s.
Tue: @Marina Square.
Thank you Christopher from Shanghai for meeting up despite of his busy schedule. Appreciations for the first Christmas gift. Thank you for his thoughtfulness.
Wed: Happy 11Birthday to #3, not easy to get a shot of this camera-shy grandson born in SIN. Being the middle child with 2teenage sisters and 2other younger siblings must be quite a challenge. Pix credits to Linn.
Feeling a bit in a daze with not enough sleep last night. A throbbing toothache kept me from a goodnight sleep, but that shall pass! Belated 70Bday celebrations for Hong to coincide with Richard&Judy’s visit from Sydney who are in town to attend their niece’s wedding. Lunch@Glory and dessert& bubbles@my pad! Kuehs requested by Hong. Should have asked a younger helper@Glory to take the group pix 🙂
Thu: last night was another interrupted night-sleep and was determined to go to the dentist this morning. But the pain miraculously disappeared this morning – wonders never cease.
Appreciations for dinner to Les&Ivy@ChangKoreanBBQ Restaurant/Dempsey***with David&Judy from KL and MeiPin.
The yummy foods- first time to taste TempuraGinsen with good wines+Makgeolli 막걸리 were irresistible but my stomach did not forgive me. Another night with interrupted sleep. All these warning signs are telling me it is time for another check-up and also time to change my eating and drinking habits or I will not survive to be 70!
Fri: TGIF, first day of advent and the advent calendars are out – first thank you for the season, sukran/Arabic. A day and probably the weekend of rest to pay for all the dues of gluttony. Apologies to DaisyC for cancelling lunch today and also to Christopher for not showing him around SIN.
O gluttony, it is to thee we owe our griefs – Geoffrey Chaucer
