Week 20 (Part 1)

14th May (Mon)

As usual, needs to go supermarket to buy grocery.  Nothing in mind to eat, so went KFC.

Had the porridge set, it comes with a cup of coffee @ $3.90.  But I doesn't like the coffee, so I change to milo with a top up of $0.40.

Weather was good, had a good workout at Capital Tower, Strong by Zumba with Instructor Din.

15th May (Tue)

My mum has an blood test appointment at the Polyclinic.  Her appointment is at 11.20am, we were there at around 10am, but the system only allows registration 1 hour before the appointment time.  Even 10.19am also cannot, have to be 10.20am then can register and take Q number.  After the blood test and make payment, send her to the Day Care Centre.

Lunch for my mum at the Day Care Centre - stir fry rice with cabbage and fish.

At first, thought of going back and cook maggie mee to eat, but in the end, eat at the nearby coffeeshop.  My first time ordering without rice.  Had tau kwa, sweet and sour pork and the other one, not too sure what it is called @ $3.

Before the start of the afternoon activity, the staff ask the elderly, which day is it today.  My mum said it's Monday.  Another elderly auntie (the auntie who has always said, has the transport arrive, I want to go home), told the staff, I do not know, I didn't see calendar.

My mum tea break - bread with strawberry spread.

My initial plan was to go workout, but I receive a call last night telling me that I can start Bible Study Fellowship, so now on Tuesday, I will not be able to go for workout except during school holiday where there is no BSF, then I am able to go for workout.

16th May (Wed)

In the morning, bring my mum to the doctor.  As usual, the doctor prescribe 3 months medicine.  After collecting the medicine and make payment, bring my mum to the Day Care Centre.

As usual, the noisiest among the elderly around my mum area, the Malay guy.

My mum lunch - brown rice with braised chicken, steamed egg and vegetable.

As for me, curry chicken with a bowl of rice @ $4.50, nothing to shout about. 

I was tired, so went back to have a nap before going down to fetch my mum when the transport send her back.

Was tired that I didn't go for workout and slept at 9 plus.

Week 19 (Part 4)

12th May (Sat)

Told my mum that tomorrow is Mother's Day, the Church has announced last week that there's buffet after service.  She doesn't want to go, have to sweet talk her, in the end, she said that I force her to go.

Was surprise that the food is at every table, as thought we have to take the food ourselves.  Carrot cake with bee hoon and soon kueh.

After service, as usual, went Bukit Merah Central.

Went to the usual coffeeshop, there's a new stall selling fish soup, my mum wants sliced fish soup @ $4, with a bowl of rice @ $0.50.

This dumpling soup @ $4 is also new stall.  There are 8 dumplings.

Ingredients include minced meat, water chestnut, spring onion.  Overall, nothing to shout about, should have eat something else.

A flower for all Mother's from the Church

Also a $10 Fairprice voucher for Mother's from the Church.

While on the way back, she was again grumbling that she doesn't want to go and I force her to go Church.  Reply her, see, you go, you got flower, got voucher, got food to eat.  If you stay at home, nothing at all.

13 May (Sun)

It has been raining whole morning.  

Had chinese sausage inside the fridge, craving for chinese sausage with fried egg, so cook it.

Week 19 ( Part 3)

11th May (Fri)

After my mum boards the transport, I walk over to PPHCSC.

Breakfast is beehoon with fishball, fishcake, otah and chicken mid-wing.

No bingo game last Friday, so they had it this week.

I was lucky this round to win something, a small purse.

Saw a regular elderly auntie, her hand was bandage, ask her what happen, was told she has a fall in the kitchen.

Went to the Day Care Centre in the afternoon.  As usual, the Malay guy, this female, darling, that female, also darling.  And ask my mum to keep an eye on me as I am a gorilla.

Before the start of the afternoon activity, the staff (female) ask each of the elderly to introduce themselves (there are 7 elderly in the group), the Malay guy introduce himself as Raymond, then Hulk Hogan.

The drama part came is where he fell from his wheelchair, due to him talking too much and with his actions.   His wife (his wife needs to be with him at the Day Care Centre whenever he was there), the 3 helpers of the 3 elderly and the staff help him (he's quite big size).  But thank God, he didn't hit his head or injure himself.  Another drama is that he gave the staff a "slap".

Tea break is a bun with otah, as my mum now doesn't take spicy foods, they didn't put otah but spread with kaya.

Before going back, he told the male staff who ferry the elderly back, I love you, the male staff then reply him, but I don't love you.

Week 19 (Part 2)

10th May (Thur)

I was woken by my mum telling me that she has done her business and she wants to shower.

Just when I have done what I want to do and have a short rest before bringing her down to wait for the transport, she called me again, this round, she has soil herself and I had to shower her for the second time.

As last Friday, I went to see doctor, the doctor told me that, if a week later, my condition didn't get better, ask me to go back to the doctor in which they were refer me to the skin specialist.

So after my mum board the transport, I went to the doctor.  As usual, Polyclinic is packed with patients.  We can't choose doctor.  The other round, I was told it's infection, this round, the doctor told me that it's pimple only.  So was given cream to apply.

After that, time to have my lunch.  Went Bukit Batok West ave 8 as I have in mind to eat pasta.

After ordering, was given a pager, when the food is ready, the pager will blink blink.

I had chicken sausage pasta @ $6

At first I thought whether wants to go to the Day Care Centre anot, in the end, I went.  The Chinese Ministry Pastor and some volunteers from PPH Brethren Church were there.   As they were be in the Day Care Centre on every 2nd and 4th Thursday of the month, they bring over a cake to celebrate those born in the month of May.

A box of biscuit from PPH Brethren Church for the elderly.

There's a new Uncle who just started this month at the Day Care Centre, he's sitting in the same area with my mum, but different table.  I only know on Tuesday that he's staying same kampong as me, but different block when I was at the Day Care Centre on Tuesday, where he introduce himself as Mr T and told me he stays at what block.  Didn't see him today, ask one of the staff, was told, he had a fall and his wife has bring him to the doctor.

In the evening, went for Support Leaders & Event Volunteers Meeting @ Caregiver Alliance Head Office.  Dinner is served, the dinner is alright except that the chicken is bland.

Week 19 (Part 1)

7th May (Mon)

I was at the void deck with my mum waiting for the transport.  Out of the blue, this cat appears.

My mouth is always itchy, so I start to meow meow with the cat.  Oh no, that's where the problem arises.  The cat keeps following me that I got to try ways to shake it off.  Phews, I manage to shake off the cat, if not, I think I have to scream for help.

I manage to go for a walk in the Park Connector (another post), before going to the supermarket to buy grocery.

I had the curry chicken set @ $6 at the food court in Jurong Point which comes with a chicken leg, fried egg, I told the lady less rice, so she gave a bit more vegetable.

Lunch is maggie mee with fried egg, two sotong ball and vegetable which I overdo, so no picture of the vegetable.

Went to the Day Care Centre in the afternoon as on Friday when I went in, saw that they have made some changes to the seating arrangement.  My mum and a few others was shift to sit at another area.  My mum used to sit with two uncles, now she sits with two aunties, one of the auntie is the one who will said that she wants to go home and ask if the transport is here yet.

Tea break for my mum - bao.
