5 Jun 2019 – Salamat Hari Raya
Fri: TGIF. Been shopping online and got this delivered but not the chance to try it. Hope that it is worth S$48 for the 2containers. It is supposed to bubble when in contact with water and no scrubbing needed, so let’s see if this is true – verdict to be announced when I have the chance to try this product.
Fort Canning – a park with amazing old trees that I am never tired of seeing&hanging around with, but do remember mozzy repellent – if you’re going to sit or stand still for even 1min!
One of my favourite projects from the early 2000s-H&Hdays, but then the Maritime Corner and the Raffles House were not yet in placed.
A revisit and this time for their new Sang Nila Utama Garden with a Balinese influence!
Looks like the excavations are still on-going. Was helping with this during one of my visits to SIN many moons ago.
Sat: Happy Bday to Morten – when our children were the age when we first met, ie Morten15 and I, 18, I thought how could this be?? Now our grandchildren are that age and I am amazed how time has gone by so quickly!!
Sew a button(s) or something on to a commemorative quilt – Poverty Quilt in memory of Jimmy’s grandmother. My personal contribution of butterflies are also in memory of a beautiful young lady, Tori McGee and a lovely girl KellyXuan. Strange to be back in an empty 51Waterloo St! Pix credits of Jimmy, Ivan&I to Shirley.
Usually I am in the US or Norway this time of the year. Now postponed till Aug, thus missing them all bunches. Thank goodness for these, pix credits to Linn. They are part of me making them a quarter of the Chinese ethnic race, but one can question&wonder about my ancestry with #1,2,3&4.
Sun: @T3 to discover that one can watch a big screen movie here FOC. Here to meet Lawrence to take him to lunch@Jewel, so no time for movies this time round. Sad to hear of the passing of our 14thUncle LAM TinChong Danny this morning. May he RIP.
Home-cooked dinner@Les&Ivy and staying the night with them.
Mon: accompanied Lawrence bright&early to NUH for his colonoscopy with SengGee. It is a total maze to be able to find where to go even if you are sober! By the time I got back to my 4-walls, it was pouring buckets – am thoroughly enjoying every single minute of it. Has been hot hot hot and this tropical downpour today is very welcomed. As the saying goes – it never rains but it pours, and that is how my life feel likes at present.
Tue: NDC to discover that there was a mixed-up with my broken tooth vs to teeth not straight! Had to reschedule for another appointment. Am sure getting familiar with our National Health locations here in SIN!!
Yummy fancy Dim-Sum@Min Jiang@Dempsey, tkx to Ivy with the good co of Carmel. Even the napkin was a fancy item!
The Goldfish in a Bowl is quite a novelty with the twist of dill enchanting the taste. Wor-Tip with individual pipette tube, thus distributing the vinegar into the filling does add to the taste. After lunch back to NHU and now I can even lead the way for Ivy to visit Lawrence after his TACE procedure.
Appreciations to Calvin&Pat for hosting this lively break-fast gathering@Owls Brew. Tkx to Chris&Pat’s friend for BBQ sotong-heads (favourite part of the sotong for my taste!) for me. Got back just before midnight, barely managed to shower before crashing. To be on the go for 12+hrs is not what it used to be – hahaha!
Wed: Selamat Hari Raya to all celebrating. Pix from T3 displays. As for me, another morning@NHU but took a 4hrs nap in the afternoon, the consequences from yesterday!!
60yrs ago on 5Jun, the 1st Cabinet after SIN became self-governing was sworn in at City Hall. The People’s Action Party/PAP formed the first fully elected government of SIN, after it won 43 of the 51 seats in the general election of 1959. Pix downloaded.
