Wordless Wednesday: Street art
Letâ€™s playâ€¦ Spot it!
Spot It! is a visual perception card game in which players race to find the one matching picture between one card and another. The pictures can be different sizes. The cards are round and feature an assortment of colorful images of items like insects, plants, symbols, and smiley faces. Every card is unique, and has only one picture in common with each card in the deck. The game is very portable and includes a deck of 55 cards in a round, tin container that is the same size as the cards.

Tasty Thursday: Famous 49 Katong Laksa
Laksa, otah and teh peng from Famous 49 Katong Laksa Maybe its all in my head but all 3 items tasted pretty bland that day. I like my laksa gravy rich and spicy but that day was just blah. I used to prefer eating at 49 over 328 which is just within killer glare distance across the road. I loved the rundown shophouse look, dim lighting and the old ceiling fans. No not being sarcastic lah, don’t anyhow say me ah! I really did like it. Now it still looks the same but somehow the magic is not there anymore. Maybe the owners don’t spend as much time there now…
Let’s play… Pengoloo!
My First Games Pte Ltd is an importer, distributor and retailer of premium quality Euro-style boardgames and educational products. Pamela from My First Games invited us to try out some of the games to see how our kids or ourselves respond to it. I’m a big fan of games so when she made the offer, I jumped at the chance lah! First game to review is Pengoloo. [youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_5XkUtKYz0&w=640&h=360] From the description on the box, Pengoloo is suitable for ages 4 & up but if your kid has mega concentration skills, the game is good for 3 year olds too. The game is pretty simple, roll the dice, find the matching…
Happy Mother’s Day
Xan’s school organized a simple Mother’s Day celebration in school on Friday. He kept talking about the card he had made for me with the teachers in school for days. “Mummy I made a heart-shaped card on a stick for you!”, then goes on excitedly to describe it as best as he could. Although I was excited to see the card he had made for me, I was dreading the interaction I have to have with the other mothers. In fact *whispers* I can’t stand a few of them. 😛 Growing up, I’ve always had more guy friends than girl friends. Sure I played masak masak, dressed up my 1…
Tasty Thursday: Prawn Noodles from Maxwell Market
It has been a while since I had prawn noodles. I’m no prawn noodle expert but this one suits me fine. Finally found another substitute to my favourite grumpy uncle prawn noodles. Dunno where he went, shop owner (who also took over the stall, even managed to copy the recipe quite closely) was reluctant to tell me. Oh well.
Wonder Woman I am not.
For the longest time, I thought I was the strongest woman in the world. I was always the first to volunteer to move furniture or fixtures around the house or at work, carry (didn’t drag because I’m a little OCD about scuffed marks on my bags) 20+kg luggage down stairs, single-handedly cleared racks of stock during stock take while the other girls do the paper work. I was awesome. I was gilah. I was Wonder Woman! Sadly, my dreams of outdoing the guys at the warehouse were dashed as my back pains got worse. One time during work, while I was doing some paperwork at the office, a sudden excruciating…
