ByeBye Feb 2019

2 Mar 2019 – Hello Spring

Wed: looks like the construction of SingHealth is completed. Walk-In (ie no appointment)@NDC due to a minor complication after last month’s extractions. Was impressed with a young female dentist who went out of her way to handle my queries&anxieties posted to her. Thank you to Dr WL Tan who took care of me Wed 27Feb 1400-1500hrs Level 2/Room 4.

A Dog’s Way Home – A dog travels 400 miles in search of her owner, beautiful scenery. They say dogs are man’s best friend and this movie shows it. A recent survey also demonstrated that dogs are much more intuitive, Sick, sad, or hurt and all they want to do is make you feel better.

Hachi, another movie about a dog based on a true-story and you will see what unconditional love is about. Some think that I do not like dogs and that is not the case, just do not like dogs not well-disciplined or trained!

Thu: early breakfast@airport with Clement. On EC Rd checking out this new eatery on route for a popiah lunch@Glory before heading to GV@I12 for Mary Queen of Scots – Mary Stuart’s attempt to overthrow her cousin Elizabeth I, Queen of England, finds her condemned to years of imprisonment before facing execution. Too much political intrigue&manipulation for me!

Fri: 1st Fri on the 1stMar, TGIF and a good weekend to all. Tkx to my Irish (Carmel)&Norwegian (Kirsten&Mette) for their share with pix of blāveis/BlueAnemonesnøklokker/SnowBells and daffodils. The anticipation of Spring after a cold dark winter with such fond&touching memories of a sweet Irish student (Balbriggan, who would bring me her first daffodil blooms from her backyard.

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze… – Wordsworth

Happy Bday Hannah, who is on her Bicycle-Honeymoon with Heiko somewhere in Georgia. They started their journey from Germany in Oct2018 and plans to be in SIN early 2020. Safe journeys to them and tkx for sharing their honeymoon+pix.

A long day started with shopping in Chinatown (all that for less than S$50), tea with Jeffery@Barcook/Clarke Quay Central. known for its bread and quite decent Chinese egg-tarts. Was hoping to find the candy store, Sticky but it is no longer there.


Tkx to Theresa&ChengJun for this scrumptious dinner. The size of these abalones are quite something; have not had the duck gizzards since mother was alive. Like mother, Theresa is from HKG and she gets some of these foods from HKG; the lobster noodles were to die for. With Ivy&Les’s champagne&wine, I was in F&B-paradise. Was ready for dreamland by the time I got off the bus@ECoast 2300hrs – 12hrs away from my shelter is not my usual day but it is also not usual I get to taste Salon 2004 Champagne.


Sat: a day to relax and sort out things before another busy week ahead, also to pack for the hike in Hawai’i (BigIsland)/HI, USA. Only once a year promotion@Suntec for supplements, headed there around dinner time hoping for no lines and was in luck. S$248 for 4boxes+2free here at this Health-Show. Amazed that I managed to get in&out within 45mins on different buses; 196 to NichollHway and 36 from TemasekB total fares 88cents. Even if I took 196 within 45mins, would still have to pay another 88cents, that’s how it works!
