Day 6 of CNY (21st Feb)

Was surprise when I saw the driver, ask her, thought she's on leave, she reply, no enough manpower, she was ask to come back.

I didn't go to the Day Care Centre.  Thought I will go and find my friend.  Took the Circle Line and stop at Tai Seng.  Not familiar with the place and wanting to take my lunch, walk the whole stretch of shophouses,  not much variety of foods.  

End up having minced pork mee kia @ $3

Then took a bus to my friend shop.

Kueh Bangkit

Pineapple tarts

Bak kwa

Fortune dog bread from a bakery shop

Day 5 of CNY (20th Feb)

The transport was late today as the driver is a relief driver from another Centre.  He was not familiar with the route.

A cat lying on an unwanted stuff in the public area.

I didn't go to the Day Care Centre today.  Thought I will drop by the Hospital to said hi and wish the Nurse that my mum has seen at the Hospital Happy Lunar New Year.  The Nurse is from the memory clinic and that time my mum first visit to see the memory Doctor, she was the one who did the assessment.  She was very friendly and helpful, I will not write grandmother story. 

Couple of months back, I bump into an ex-colleague at Jurong Point.  She was working in a fast food chain there.  She did ask for my contact number which I did gave her, but she didn't contact me.  She did ask me to go look for her when I was in the vicinity.  Thought I will go Jurong Point supermarket get my grocery.  As I do not have her contact number, I could not check with her about her working hours.  The only thing I can do is to walk in and see if she's around.  Too bad, didn't manage to find her.

Curry chicken noodle @ $4, @ Malaysia Boleh

A cup of small cappuccino @ $3 before going back.

When my mum is back, the feedback I get from the relief driver is that my mum enjoy herself.

Day 4 of CNY (19th Feb)

The driver that ferry my mum to the Day Care Centre is on leave for 3 days.  Usually my mum will be down early to wait for the transport.  The transport that usually my mum takes is own by the Day Care Centre and the driver is a staff of the Day Care Centre.  Before that, I ever ask the driver, who will be taking over from her when she's on leave, she reply she doesn't know.

The transport arrive 15 minutes before the state time.  To make sure that it's the correct transport as the transport is different from the usual transport, I went to ask the driver.  He said I am afraid, he is also afraid as, if ferry the wrong person, he will have to bring the person back again.

Lunch will be brown rice with tau kee, fish, cauliflower.

Tea break - 芋头糕

Sunday (18th Feb)

There's a Chinese New Year service at the Church in Tanglin Road on the first day of CNY, but I didn't attend.  No Hokkien and Cantonese service on Saturday.  Sunday, there's a combined service.

The other day, I WhatsApp a neighbourhood neighbour who's attending PPH Brethren Church is there any service in the 3rd day of CNY.   She WhatsApp me back there is.

So my mum and I were at PPH Brethren Church.

After the service, while taking bus no. 188 to Harbourfront Interchange as my mum wants to go to the Food Centre for lunch.

Along the way, the bus caption was grumbling to himself.  A young lady alight, he grumble why she didn't use 11.  Then grumble he drive from Choa Chu Kang to Harbourfront. And then grumble, along Pasir Panjang to Telok Blangah, only 188, there's still other buses that can be taken.

As it's the 3rd day of CNY, the fish soup stall that my mum patron, there's a price hike of $0.50.

I eat from a Malay stall, so no price hike.

Then as usual, walk a round at a round at Harbourfront, then coffee before going back.

My mum wants Heavenly Wang, but no table available, we end up at McDonald's.

Mochaccino @ $4

Joke of the day

On the first day of CNY, 四姑 gave a packet of bak kwa (cheaper brand) to 三姑, as after going to 四姑 place, my cousin (四姑 eldest daughter) is going over to her boyfriend place, she has actually bought bak kwa (more expensive brand), intend to give it to her boyfriend mum's.  She can't find the bak kwa she bought and took the packet of bak kwa 四姑 gave to 三姑.  After everyone left, I was the last to leave 四姑 place. 小姑 was searching high and low for the packet of bak kwa, but can't find it.

Message 小姑 did they found the packet of bak kwa, the answer was, my cousin left the packet of bak kwa she has bought for her boyfriend mum's at home.

CNY Day 2 @ relative house (17th Feb)

Actually, I thought after going to my 三姑 house, will then go over to a relative (my mum's side) place.  But then, I was at my 三姑 place till evening.  So I thought I will go on the 2nd day.  Beside, every year, she will cook and serve those who visit her.  I have eaten so full at my 三姑 place, will not be able to eat again if I were to go over to her place.

After my mum board the transport to the Day Care Centre, I make my way to PPHCSC to read newspaper, then to Bukit Timah Food Centre to look for my friend who runs a business there.  It has been a while since I went there.

My mum appointment at the Polyclinic,blood  test.  After the test, she said wants to go home.  She wanted to tabao foods back to eat, but I prefer to eat at the place itself instead of tabao food back.  So told her, we eat finish then go back. She choose the Kopitiam Food Court at the Jurong East MRT station as it's the nearest to the Interchange.

She had shredded chicken with scallop porridge @ $4.  When I saw the porridge, I was like where's the shredded chicken, it's shredded till very thin.

I had dry u mian @ $4.50

Managed to catch a nap in the afternoon.  Has been very tired recently.

My cooking no eye see, can't post. Recently, has been blessed by a Church member for the dumplings.  Fry or steam, I like, but to be healthy, I steam it.
