31 Jan 2021 – A Good Cause To Write About

28Jan2021Edited: congratulations to Kari&Sylwin and the very best for their married life ahead. Karl is the son of Ann, my first Irish girlfriend and we have been friends since 1965.

Thu: Brendan Smialowski, a photojournalist for Agence France-Presse, shot the image of a bundled Mr. Sanders that spawned a multitude of memes on Inauguration Day. This picture went viral – being&liking the outdoor nature person, this was one my favourites and then when you thought you have seen them all until Terry shared this from TheAlaskanLife which put a big smile on my face.

Anything to a good cause is worthwhile mentioning&writing about, especially when raising money for reputable charities. This has helped to raise $1.8 million in the last 5days for charitable organizations in Sanders’ home state of VT. Besides Where is Waldo, it is now Where is Bernie – hahaha.
Fri: tkx to Aileen for gift&lunch@PP basement food-court. Grocery shopping@the new fancy FairPriceXtra replacing where Giant used to be. Such a feast to the eyes with the CNY presentations of goodies, etc. Not sure I really know my bananas here!
PostOffice – getting the new stamps for my home-made CNY cards from old recycled red packages to be snail-mailed by Mon, 2Greetings in one – CNY&Valentine’s Day! (12&14Feb).
Sat: appreciations to nieces, nephew&grandnephews for food-tasting starting with
Breakfast@HouseDownstairs(fusion), located@UluPandanCC – good sandwich, so-so other food! Took me 1hr30min with one change on the bus to get there and doubtful if I will return for another meal here!
Lunch@GhimMohFoodCentre(local). My father used to like the food here when he was living in HollandGroveLane many moons ago.
Coffee&T at DutchColonyCoffeeCo@Fusionopolis, alien to me but a familiar area to Daisy and Stanley as they both work in this hood.
Dinner@Nana/GoldenMile(Thai). Is this what it is like to be in FoodHeaven for a day?
Sun: good Sunday morning from the kitchen window’s MoonSet this early morning – enjoy your last Jan2021Sunday. Tkx to Calvin for this juicy box of Mandarin oranges delivered by Chris who picked me at the bus-stop last night to send me back to my 4-walls – counting every blessing in life to keep reminding how wonderful life is.
~1+hr on the Bus16, MRT (Circle/orange changing to NE/purple-Line) and LRT to Layar, which is taken only for my annual visit to Inessa@Fernvale. Thanks for pot-luck lunch, looking forward to tasting Philip’s Shepherd, but this year it was slightly different in that he did not have the hint of curry in it, but was still yummy.
Good to meet with TC who drives a vintage Mercedes (last time I was in on of those was 1964-65) and also a collector of AsianLPs – would be interesting to see his collection. Tkx to Philip for the ride which took ~30mins!
