4 Jun 2021: Other Upcoming Festivals
Wed: welcome the month of June and Happy Gawai to those celebrating&marking this DayakFestival, one of the major festivals &public holidays today&tomorrow in Sarawak, E-Malaysia. Looking forward to visiting KCH/Sarawak again to catch up with family&friends there, but it would not be the same now that Lawrence is no longer. https://www.borneotalk.com/gawai-dayak/
Still unable to find a place to eat pansoh/Iban for chicken cooked in bamboo here in SIN.
Appreciations to Theresa&CJ for yummy dinner
Thu: fun memories of the 1st SIN-Orchid-Festival@SBG (2003) and 1st SIN-Garden-Festival@Suntec (2006) which were enjoyable to help set up then. Looking forward to these@OrchardRd&SBG. Tkx to Jo for tonight’s dinner.
One of my favourite festivals iLight is back and if energy permits, will try to see these lights to soak up some needed energy! If otherwise, will just have to live vicariously thru’ FB-friends’ pix and this link. https://www.ilightsingapore.gov.sg/
Condolences to KK & family for the passing of his sister, YeeLing (84) – our families have been friends since the early 1950s when we used to meet every weekend for lunch.
Fri: TGIF Duanwu Festival 端午節 Happy Dragon-Boat-Festival and a good weekend to all – enjoy your BakChang/Zongzi 粽子, not being a connoisseur with these rice dumplings will be happy to mark the celebrations with whichever ones I can find in my area. Has been 20+yrs ago since I last beat the drums for these races!
There were only 3ppl in front this morning when I was@KimChooKuehChang/EC-Rd, but the line grew after I was done.
Got 5different BakChangs+DonaManis BananaPie for auntie Ngor, cousin Karen and CCstaff. Glad that they were consumed&enjoyed by all
Sat: appreciations to 1st-born for these school year ending pix, soo missing their events, especially when it is an end of an era – five past and one present graduates of IrmoElementary where I have also given presentations to both #1&2’s classes – quite strange to not have any more grandchildren in elementary school. In every ending there is another beginning until it is really THE END – so enjoy all your moments when they are.
Everything has to come to an end, sometime -L. Frank Baum, The Marvelous Land of Oz
Way to go #5, now done with elementary school; #4, straight A’s plus award for integrity and done with MIddleSchool – thank you 1st-born&Jeff for making me a proud grandmother to these FabulousFive.
Today’s craving was for Thai food and the good thing in SIN is that it is possible to get decent Thai food@GoldenMile where I did some shopping – Tamarind-snacks and baby-egg-plant is a must for me where GreenThaiCurry is concerned (to be added to the take-away food)
got some of my favourites – GreenThaiCurry, OliveRice, RedRuby to go, enough food to last me for a few days!
