Multiplication

I was bored, he was bored. All I wanted was to be a statues for a moment but he wasn’t willing to have his quiet time. I took the Boogie Board and set some questions which I thought he couldn’t answer. Okay, I confessed, I had a plan on my mind, I was out to piss him off, I expected him to throw tantrum and then I got to ask him to sit at a corner and practice skip counting.

I was wrong. So wrong. IMG_1447

Great. Now we have more things to do, he enjoys this more than subtraction sum and his speed is faster too.

Durians + Two Chefs

2015/01/img_1034.jpg
I almost forgot to pen down our wonderful outing during our last December holiday. It was all because of a Durian photo posted on Ah Seng Facebook, we started talking about it and Bren made the reservation. When the day finally came, we headed down to their temporary stall at Ghim Moh Market. The stall is clean and seating area was comfortable enough for diners. I went with empty stomach but didn’t manage to eat much. Don’t get me wrong, I love ❤️ durian and love ❤️ to eat but my weak stomach will protest for days if I refuse to stop. (Oh dear, as I was writing this post, Ben saw the photo and asked if we should call Ah Seng again! Looks like someone is craving for good durians. LoL)

After our durian session, we chit-chatted for a while before we went to Two Chefs, which was just a stone’s throw away. The tricks to prevent long waiting:
➡️reservation
➡️call in to order and pick up later
➡️go at odd hour.

I mind having late dinner but never mind when it is early, we got the table rather fast and food served within 15 minutes. We ordered a few of their signature dishes and all turned out well, maybe my tastebuds are less fussy, I always think their food is good and reasonably priced. Everything was great but would be perfect if Ethan was around, my bad, I was telling Bren and Aloy that Asher would not be tagging along but I changed my mind. Luckily the boys still got to play together as we spent a few good hours at the Tay’s.

It was another yummilicious outing that I always enjoy, be it with friends and families. Ben said we must make an effort to “ketchup” “ketchup” with friends every now and then, I am willing to “sacrifice” my daily 5 hours me-time, let Asher goes for AM class and have his tuition and activities over the weekdays afternoon so we can “reserve” the weekends for friends and families.

SMH Chili Crab Pau

IMG_1271
My eyebrows raised after the first taste of SMH Chili Crab Pau at supermarket when it was given out free by the promoter. It was so close to having chili crab, the sauce was good with little spicy and sweet, I couldn’t quite tell if it was crab meat or not but this is definitely something that worth storing in the freezer and satisfy my chili crab craving. (Especially when I am not a crab lover, no way for me to order this dish just because I am craving for it.)

This morning, I steamed 4 Pau and packed 2 for Ben, he later updated me that he liked it as much as I do. $6.40/pack for 8 Pau, I personally find it reasonable. Next time, I will try out SMH Charcoal Salted Egg Custard Pau since Ben loves custard pau, and at the same time, get another pack of Chili Crab Pau, just in case.

Steamed and ready to be eaten. From the packaging, I’ve learnt that we can choose to fry them too. However, I still prefer to steam the Pau, easier and healthier.IMG_1242
Personally hope the filling can be more than this. Can you see any crabmeat?

The SAHM got a JOB !!

IMG_1087
Everyone knows SAHMs have to work 24/7 but with (almost) zero income. To be honest, I hardly felt that as the income comes straight into the bank account which I have all access to it. I can draw as much as I want and I can spend as much as I wish, however, I spend money wisely, sometimes I even find myself thrifty. So, I do not consider myself as a SAHM with no income, no spending power, need to ask for money from husband. But, do I still want to receive paychecks (other than from husband)?

OF COURSE!!!

Last week, I was told that I was the right candidate for a job, which requires one to work for 3 hours a day, 3 days in a week. I was quite reluctant to say yes at first, knowing that I could not travel far. The next thing I knew, it was only 15-20mins walk from my place. OMG, is this for real? If yes, then it is too good to be missed! I usually spend the good few hours hanging out at Toast Box for my tea, shopping and sometimes, doing absolutely nothing at home, if I take up the job, I still have 2 hours for myself, I only need to work 3 times weekly and still get paid. Come to think about it, there is no reason for me to reject. I can’t share much of the JD, I just know it will be quite fun. 😄

I am feeling all so thankful. I’d never thought that I could find a job like this. (Is it the brow thingy that brought little fortune?)
