En route to meeting Da for lunch today, I had a lovely chat with Miss Southampton. Hi girl, it is good to hear from you again. Da and I usually attend the 2nd service or 3rd service in church on sundays. However, we are usually seated at the main auditorium or the overflow room on Level 4. I hope to see you in church soon!
Lunch was an all-vegetarian affair. Da and I met at People's Park Centre and proceeded to the food court. We both ordered organic brown rice with 3 vegetarian ingredients per plate. Each order of vegetarian food comes with a complimentary bowl of soup that contains beans, carrots and potatoes. We displayed a typical Singaporean habit, that is, "share-share". Yes, we swopped some of our ingredients so that we ended up sampling 6 ingredients each!
ET had extended a dinner invitation to MT (Da's cousin) and us, which the three of us accepted. There was a feast awaiting us when we arrived:-
(a) duck soup with salted vegetables - I am not keen on duck (although I admit to having a weakness for peking duck!) but the soup was very tasty
(c) fruit and vegetable salad - I could not resist the salad made by SY. It was excellent!
MT brought a tub of ice-cream while we brought some deep fried prawn crackers.
Before we could digest our dinner, Part 1 of the after-dinner snacks was served. The bowl of canned longan with almond jelly was very refreshing.
With Part 1 of the after-dinner snacks out of the way, Nining invited everyone to the family room where we sat down to watch television. Tau Suan had a fun time trying to coach Nining to be more ladylike. However, she did not take her "lessons" seriously and kept making monkey faces while attempting to demonstrate ladylike mannerism.
Part 2 of the after-dinner snacks followed shortly. The plate of goodies that you see in the photograph below comprises ham bun, banana chocolate chip muffin and baked yoghurt doughnut that I had made and brought to the home of the Three Musketeers.
Is there more? You bet there is!
Part 3 of the after-dinner snacks consisted of aromatic 3-in-1 coffee mixed with hazelnut syrup and some walnut cookies that I had baked.
For a girl of 3 years of age, Nining loves coffee. She drank a cup of coffee, then proceeded to drink SY's cup as well. Nining told SY that she would drink a cup of coffee on behalf of SY because SY has a cough and should not be drinking coffee!
When it started raining, Supercute and I sat in his room and had a lovely chat while enjoying the cool breeze. Nining joined us shortly and delighted in telling us about her boyfriend in nursery school! Soon, a little gathering had formed in the room when SY and Tau Suan joined us.
It was an enjoyable evening. Thank you for the invitation, ET.
