Busy day, spent the morning doing crafts with Vince and Edda. In the afternoon as the house was being cleaned, we went a few MRT stops over to Causeway point and went to the Woodlands library, made a window cling, got more supplies for crafts the next day and ate at Mos Burger which is, I think, a burger chain owned by the Japanese. The cook to order, so the fries were hot, hot, hot. And yummy, yummy, yummy. I’ve finally started cooking again and it’s been a week of good dinners. Tonight’s dinner, fish tacos with red cabbage & lime juice slaw.
Just finished this book, first book by Jules Verne that I’ve read. I was a bit confused reading it because I knew that it had been made into a movie starring Jackie Chan and the main character of the book, Philas Fogg, is suppose to be this stoic Englishman and I was like, who would cast Jackie Chan as a stoic Englishman. Anyways, I finally figured out that Jackie played the sidekick who is suppose to be a gymnast among having other interesting talents. The book was quite good. Reminds me that I should read 10,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
I’m homeschooling. Scary.
Wow. So basically, my project lead decides on Wed to do my part of the project for me without tell me. WTF? I’m a bit miffed to say the least. Back to twiddling my thumbs.
Today the kids and I went downtown to a play – The Ugly Duckling. A million kids were there from the German International School and after I paid more than 50 bucks for three tickets, Vince started flipping out and he said he wanted to go home. But I managed to coax him, with the help of an usher who assured him that it wasn’t scary, to sit through a rather nice puppet rendition of the fairy tale. Sheez…. went all the way downtown on the subway and then retreated back on a taxi.
Jeremy got me a bouquet of yellow flowers for our anniversary and we wanted to invite our neighbors over for dessert, but at 8:30, everyone else was eating dinner and not yet ready for dessert. Oh well, eventually one of our neighbors came by at 9:45 pm or so. It was really nice talking to them.
Ever since Ruby got back from quarantine, we’ve been splitting the walks, Jeremy give Ruby a 30 minute walk in the morning and I do 30 minutes before bed. All this is without the kids… The past few days Ruby has started out on the walk and after she pees/poops, she refuses to go any further and wants to go back home. She seems to be in good health and not too hot, tonight, I even brought a bottle of water with me. It seems like she doen’t want to be away from the kids and the other person who has been left in the apartment. Who knows…
