Birthdays Celebrations

21 Jan 2022 – Eat Till You Drop!

Mon: severe snow and rare ice storm expected to hit the US EastCoast. Family&friends who are affected plx take care to be safe&warm. Post office to mail off a package of old B/Wphotos to Lock CanadaS$21 – wonder how long it will take to get there? Old pix of ancestral hall touched-up, scanned and printed S$25 (+6colour prints) to share with family. Tkx to Irene for her share with the copy by the pond.

OldChangKee dinner@CC. Tkx to Helen for Wingstop (good coleslaw) and for delightful stroll with the tigers in Chinatown under a lovely breezy beautiful full-moon.

That’s actually very nice. Normally they all looked a bit weird and cardboard like according to cousin Karen who is an architect with good taste and it was exactly my thoughts and what I said to Helen too!

Tue: Happy Thaipusam to those celebrating&marking the day. Grocery shopping@Giant/Tampines and pleased with decent promotional savings of S$12.25 and SS$3.58. New stick vacuum S$25 – the old one just broke down after over a decade. Tkx to Aileen for gifts+lunch@IKEA.

Wed: have been wanting to check out HockTeckSee Temple

working then with H&H@former MarinaHouse now a completely new EON-ShentonCondos. Never too late as long as both are still standing intact despite being overwhelmed by skyscrapers. A pleasent morning stroll down memory-lane!

Tkx to Aileen for getting me out of my 4-walls 2days in a roll. In good company but not inspired with this SAW-Exhibition – https://www.artweek.sg/

more impressed with the selection of food in this vending machine there! Do not usually get food from vending machines unless there are no other choices and I am starving! Have not seen a vending machine with this kind of salad selections – Ceasar, Greek, SobaNoodle, ThaiPapaya, on top of the selection of sandwiches, but not starving nor in the mood to flirt!

At I12 for lunch and the new basement food court looks pretty decent – fasting today and not too hungry, the plum juice was refreshing&good. Aileen had the KwayTeow&Chendol and liked them. Will be back to try the foods from some of these stalls.

Thu: lunching on 4 different taste for starters+fresh crispy baby arugula salad, delicious SotoAyam made from scratch+fried salmon-belly and fresh fruits for desserts.

Appreciations&tkx to Calvin@CC for Iyas’s Bday dinner – yummy dumpings, fish-head, giant-shrimps, quids, scallops and vegetarian dish from Iyas.

AgarAgar+a bottle of IKEA Swedish wine from me and all pix credits to Helen, except for the one of her! As usual, a good time was had by all.

Fri: TGIF thank goodness the major drilling&hacking from some renovation@5level is finally done when I have been busy&out the past 4days – was not planned, just happened. Today can at least hear myself think and music without headphones – also need to fast to let the system rest before more celebrations over the weekend.
