Another year has passed and we haven’t killed each other: Photo edition
A continuation from the previous post on Monday. What’s an anniversary post without some flashback photos? 2006: At the Registry of Marriages (ROM) The photographer was a close friend of mine and because of that, we were very comfortable in front of the lens. Maybe a bit too comfortable. Ha! 2008: Wedding dinner at Grand Shanghai. I’m not going to bore you with many yum yum yum seng photos. Just 1 photo from the morning and some from the dinner will do. Why? Because all wedding dinner photos are the same and I don’t feel like showing you sia suay photos of my friends here. I reserve them for moments…
Wordless Wednesday: The Evil Eye
I think the picture says it all. Cranky son fed up with mummy’s irritating and persistent “Come take picture! Smile! Quick! Smile leh!!” Linking up with:
Another year has passed and we haven’t killed each other!
22 November marked the day we signed our “til-death-do-us-part-your-money-is-my-money-and-my-money-is-my-money” contract: it was our 6thÂ wedding anniversary. *applause please* For years The HusbandÂ insisted ourÂ anniversaryÂ should fall on 20 July when we held our customary wedding dinner and he said he (strangely, a few others also)Â thought a wedding is only formalized after the dinner. I said why would we go through the trouble to pick a nice date for the solemnizationÂ if the dinner date was going to be more important leh? We weren’t even planning for a wedding dinner back then because we thought sign contract can already, the dinner was such an extravagance and that we wanted no part of it. Luckily, we…
Foodie Friday: Slippery noodles!
It was one of those nights when we were so hungry and too tired to think of where to go and what to eat as long as we get to eat something not too expensive around where we were, within the Far East Square area. Unfortunately, most of the casual eating places were closed (it was only 7pm) and the prawn noodle place was one of the few that was still open and looked quiet + affordable. We decided to give it a try. To be honest, I thought the prawn and pork rib noodles weren’t that great, I’ve had better ones elsewhere. Little boy didn’t seem to mind though…
Wordless Wednesday: Art vs Mess
After what seemed like only 5 seconds in the toilet, I came back to this. An optimistÂ will seeÂ Jackson Pollock, aÂ realist on the other hand sees major clean up work. Relax and go with the flow will ya? Linking up with:
Whatsapp, you sabo me!
The mardder of mardder of Xander is 70ish this year and she loves her gadgets, especially her iPhone. When we all started to use the iPhone a few years ago, she would casually look over our shoulders to see what we were up to and then casually say stuff like “Wah! Your screen very big hor? Good leh! Mine, you see, so small, buttons so hard to press. Your phone can do what ah?” Sometimes she would also say “Aiyah, your phone so complicated. Don’t waste money on me lah.” Note to all clueless filial children: when your mardder says all that, she is not envious of you or your…
Happy birthday old boy!
Dear Ah Lao, Today is your birthday and I need to come clean … *whisper* I did not get you a present. I can just hear you guys gasping and exclaiming. “WHAT??? No present?? Wah lau!” Eh, you all don’t lydat leh. Don’t judge me leh… *sob* For a guy who has everything, the last thing you need is another long sleeve shirt or bag. Your wardrobe very full ler lah. I’m not very creative in the gift giving department. The Triton is little out of my budget at the moment, honey. You just wait ohkay? You wait long long ok? *roll eyes* I know the last few weeks haven’t…
My å°é¬¼ (little ghost) is baby no more.
Facebook status dated 24 Oct: I forgot who reminded who but Xan & I were talking abt his sch’s Halloween party a few nights ago. I asked him if he wld like to wear the Ultraman costume my sis bought for him to the party. He said no. He wanted to be a Prince! I was surprised, asked him if he knew wat it was and he said No but he wanted to dress like a Prince anyway. Being a skeptic, I had to make sure so I asked him again the next day. He clearly had a good night’s rest and decided to ditch the whimpy Prince for… a…
Let’s play… Vegetable stamping!
I had been thinking of doing some vegetable stamping with Xan for quite a long time because we have never done it before. Usually thinking of it after the vegetables end up either in our bellies or in the trash. I only cook We love eating Shanghai Greens and the stems are perfect for the art project. I managed to save all 3 this time and even struck a deal with the Little Man to finish every grain of food and we could do some art and craft after that. I think he barely looked up from his bowl and managed to finish his food in record time. He absolute…
It’s still me with a few upgrades
Why the move and the new name? I used to blog from another site on and off since 2008. Some weeks back The Husband asked if I would like him to host/manage/redesign my blog as a Mother’s Day/birthday gift to me. He will deny this but he sneakily managed to convince me to change the name of my blog because it had to incorporate the xander.sg domain name. The previous name just didn’t cut it. A friend asked “Next time when you have another child how? Change the blog name ah?” Well, Number 2 doesn’t seem to be happening leh. I guess we will decide when Number 2 happens lah.…
