Patrick’s Day Parade 2023

20 Mar 2023 – Happy Bdays Linn,Pat-Lynn,Beth,YiShang

Fri: Lá Fhéile Pádraig Happy St Patrick’s Day from SIN to all celebrating. Have been in SIN to celebrate this day over the past decade except for 2019 when I was in HI/USA. Tonight’s home-dinner was at sis Jo while Pat&Beth were busy with their Bday-celebrations with friends. Happy Bdays to niece&grandniece.

From 2013 blog posting 10yrs ago for this day…


Sun: Happy St Patrick’s Day. Lunched with Carmel and appreciations for her company, flowers and for driving to and from the parade. Thank goodness no rain but was hot and crowded and disappointed with the poor organizing by IGAS committee…

Sat: Happy 49Bday to my beautiful 1st born, born amongst Leprechaun/Ireland moved on with the Viking to Norway and now in the BraveNewWorld/USA will be into her last year in her 40s – seems like yesterday we celebrated her 40th when she ran the Boston Marathon. Somehow it is difficult to imagine that I will soon have a child who will be 50…

Sun: and so concludes 2023 St Patrick’s Day week events with the parade by SIN River. Appreciations&tkx to all who participated in making this week a wonderful green week!

Not sure if the energy, enthusiasm or mood(seems to be dwindling as time goes by!) will be there to take part in these events the next Patrick’s Day, but for now, its time put these gadgets into storage until…

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you

Welcome Vincent back to SIN, tkx for family dinner@BritishHainan/PurvisSt and fluffy JapaneseSouffléPancakes dessert, my favourite pancake@Flipper’s/Bugis. It is quite amazing to have nephews&nieces now in their 60s! Vividly remembered when Vincent was born and this year he will be 61 and the eldest from the OrangeG, Lam JenMun will be 64…

Mon: For those in the Northern Hemisphere, first day of spring is Monday, March 20, 2023, at 5:24 p.m. EDT. But with climate changes&crisis, some places might still have to wait for Spring!

Next couple of weeks to sort out what is needed from 1May-15Sep when away from SIN. Tkx to Clement for getting these online for me, looks like they fit with both my Chaco&shoes. Seems to be OK if needed for the PEI-walk, but hope that I do not have to use them, as the Norwegian saying goes – Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlig klær=There is no bad weather, only bad clothes!
Not that I know or have any investments but this is not the news any Credit Suisse’s investors want to wake up to – $17 Billion of Risky Bonds Are Now Worthless
