20th Oct (Sat)

Two days back, while waiting for the transport with my mum, bump into a neighbourhood neighbour who mention that her hubby is in the Community Hospital, decided to visit neighbourhood neighbour hubby.

While there, neighbourhood neighbour mentions that the ward her hubby is in are all dementia patients.

It so happen the patient next to neighbourhood neighbour is an eighty plus Ah Gong.

The helper is there taking care of him.  Was saiding hello to Ah Gong and  was told that Ah Gong has not been talking for a period of time and he even couldn't recognize his sons.  Saddened to hear it.

After the visitation, my meal, nasi padang (chicken) @ $5.

15th Oct (Mon)

Bought a batang steak from one of the fishmonger in Redhill market yesterday.  This is my first time buying from this lady fishmonger as previously when I was there, I bought from another stall.  That stall was crowded,  so I bought from this stall.  Should be my 1st and last time as her attitude piss me off.
