Biting My Own Tongue!

5 Mar 2022 – Gravlax Week

Tue: grocery shoppings @Giant/Tampines (some expensive seafood there today, did not buy any besides the salmon, but do like to look!) and Mustafa/LittleIndia where I can get a big package of dill for less than S$2. In some other places, a tiny package cost ~S$2 and will need ~20packages of those here.

Guess what’s on the menu this month? 4+kg fresh salmon for S$80+ Besides Gravlaks=buried salmon for the weekend, the rest are going into the freezer for salmon-steaks, soup, etc for this St Pats month. Have not done this for some time, hope that I have not forgotten the secret (fr EllenHald/senior) to one of my most requested dishes!

Wed: got up this morning and thought I was coughing up blood to gladly discover that it was my tongue that was bleeding, probably bit it in my sleep and don’t ask how that is possible as this is the 1st-time (and hopefully the only&last time) something like this happened, thus that is the only explanation. Do not remember that I bit my tongue yesterday and if I did, would I have felt it?

Imagine all the expressions about biting your own tongue, but in my case, I usually do not bite my tongue, awake or asleep – You never really appreciate just how sharp your teeth are until you bite your tongue.

Thank goodness it is still not too hot here in the evenings (24-26ºC) yet – problems with the main outlet for AC-plug, time for an electrician and AC maintenance.

Thu3Mar2022: tkx to FB for this memory posted by LokOkokLok : 這2位就是由新加坡前來,專登來走轉麥徑全程…可惜太大霧,睇吾到甘靚風景=這2 were just kicked off by the Singapore strikers, climbing all the way down the alley… Too bad it’s too big to catch the sugar cane landscape.. It is really 10yrs ago Grace&I did the 100K-Thru-Hike, MacLehose Trail/HKG? Where has a whole decade gone?? Now Lok is a proud father of a lovely daughter and I am looking much forward with hopes for a 700K-Thru-Hike in 2023.

Lunch with KK and dinner@Theresa&CJ with Les&IvyGravlaks was part of both meals! KK was impressed that I got these 3used-dressed for S$10 (did some alterations&colouring ) and gave me one of his mom’s dresses. Appreciations for AuntieKwok’s dress, do remember vaguley her wearing it – nice that it fits, but will alter and make it sleeveless and think of her when I have it on. Dresses like these are most appropriate for the tropical weathers, cooling&comfortable.

Fri: one more afternoon of Gravlaks and this taste round was for Calvin, Chris, Wendy&WaiHang@CC. Tkx for yummy dinner. 

Sat: a good weekend to all and this is all I wish for all of us and our beautiful planet PEACE 平和 Fred Pace Paix  Paz  Frieden Vrede  Paqe  سلام  Свет  Мир  Pau Mir Vrede  Rahu  Kapayapaan  Rauha Ειρήνη Lapè שלום शांति  Béke  Friður  Perdamaian  Síochána 평화 Miers  Taikos  Мир  Keamanan  Paċi صلح Pokój Amani ความ สงบสุข Barış Світ Hòa-bình Heddwch פרידן
