23 Jul 2021 – Garden Of Eden
Mon: Happy 24Anniversary to my beautiful first-born – miss and love them all tons and wish I could be there to help and be of support in these troubled times.
Appreciations to Carmel for delicious yummy fresh berries&fruits+orchids – in the Garden of Eden with my favourite NZ bite-size apples but I am not Eve, so will eat all the apples I want – hahaha. KK did mentioned that – If you are Eve, you are too old to care whether there is a snake around (remember, Eve was a young woman!). Feeling young is far from what I feel today, maybe young at heart, but definitely NOT the body!!! Having the runs all day, the system needing to rid all the chemicals ingested during surgery.
Good to chat with Ann(Perth) and appreciations to DaisyL for the lovely bouquet to cheer me up when my movements are even slower than the sloth! But then have just been informed by Garry that sloths can move quickly! In Sri Lanka, they are one of few animals to stalk and attack humans! In my ignorance I thought that sloths are the most slowest&harmless, but I supposed if they are threatened, that will be another story!!
Tue: 2above pix downloaded. Selamat Hari Raya Haji to all celebrating, a public holiday here in SIN. Sometime I do get confused with these Hari Rayas. Today is Haji (end of Hajj, korban/the sacrifice, a ritual for this). https://www.timeout.com/singapore/things-to-do/the-guide-to-hari-raya-haji-in-singapore
Not to mix up with Puasa (marks the end of the fasting month of Ramadan/fasting month) https://eresources.nlb.gov.sg/infopedia/articles/SIP_919_2004-12-20.html
C-19cases up in the 100+ restrictions back to Phase2. Saddened&shocked over the news about RiverValleyHighSchool murder, do not ever remember reading or hearing of a murder in school here in SIN! https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/death-river-valley-high-most-students-return-classes-counsellors-deployed-school-support
Trying out the services of Deliveroo for the first time – was having YoléYogurt in mind as my supply was getting low, but no delivery for that, so decided to try my favourite HokkienMeeS$15.20 (including delivery charges) from Lorong29 and pleased with their service and the meal was kept hot. The medium size with 5good size prawns will last me for 3meals!!
Wed: tkx to DaisyC for BatangFishSoup – poor her! Sounds like she has a contractor from HELL to renovate her place. Tkx to Clement for picking up the litre YoléYogurt box S$23, few of the foods which is really a help to calm the stomach at present.
Thu: 10yrs ago Fri22Jul2011, a day Norwegians will never forget! In memory to all who lost their lives then. https://amylamsg.com/2011/07/23/bombs-shootings/
Happy Sarawak Day – missing my Bday KCH visits with family&friends and missing their KCH-Laksa, KoloMee, Midin – the last was Jan2019! Wonder when I can be there again? The nearest place I can order take-out KCH Laksa&KoloMee is @HaigRdMarket and that is closed due to a C-19cluster of cases there! Good to hear from Chuan&AnnChee from KCH. https://amylamsg.com/2019/01/15/kch-rotary-clubs/
Appreciations to CK for these yummy quiche (no cheese) – finally had the pleasure to meet him. Could not wait till tomorrow, tasted one and looking forward to breakfast tomorrow. And here is to a real man who eats and likes quiche, but makes them too.

Fri: Happy Bday to #5 who now counts his age in 2digits. The opening of the Olympic Games Tokyo 2020 in Japan – already delayed a year, but still think that this not a good idea to continue! Today is also the opening for Peer Gynt på Gålå and this year both of Guri’s children, Peder&Eline will be taking part. Was fortunate to be able to be there in 2019. https://amylamsg.com/2019/08/11/peer-gynt-pa-gala/

Tkx to HS&BT for ThunderTeaRice/LeiChaFan擂茶+omelett from JooChiat – a wholesome healthy meal with ground green tea, nuts or seeds, basil&mint soup. It is an acquired taste and it has been a while ago since I last had it, now is the perfect time for this healing foods. https://angmohintheeast.com/joo-chiat-thunder-tea-rice/
