Not well

12th Nov (Mon)

Have a craving for fried chicken, so my dinner is 2 pc fried chicken.

Fee : meal provided

13th Nov (Tue)

When I woke up, I feel that my stomach is uncomfortable and then I also vomitted.  I then send an whatapps to my manager that I can't go to work as I am sick.

Told my mum that I won't be going to work, but instead I will be going to the doctor.  She then ask me to go to the Day Care Centre during her lunch time, told her, no lah, I very sleepy and won't be going to the Day Care Centre.

After my mum boards the transport, I proceed to see the doctor.

Actually, the weather was cloudy, nice for walk at Park Connector, etc, but being sick, I was not in the mood for that.  Instead I went back home.  Slept most of the time and for the whole day, I have no appetite and didn't eat anything.

After my mum was back from the Day Care Centre, told her, you just take your dinner, can finish or not, just leave it there as I want to sleep.

14th Nov (Wed)

Morning, I didn't take my breakfast as no appetite and I was worry that I might vomit when I go work.

In the midst, I  started to feel hungry and was craving for porridge.  So after work, I was at a coffeeshop in Jurong East, saw only 1 duck rice stall selling porridge, so order a duck porridge.

Duck porridge @ $3.30

15th Nov (Thur)

There's a pasar malam in Jurong East, near the MRT station.  It so happen I was craving for macaroni, saw a muslim stall selling it, so bought packet back to make an.

Fried macaroni @ $3

16th Nov (Fri)

There's a fishball noodle stall at Jurong Point Kopitiam Food Court which my mum and I quite like, so I thought of eating it.  When I was there, the stall looks different as now the stall sells lor mee, laksa, prawn mee, fishball noodle, etc... Unlike previously, the stall sells fish ball noodle.  So I ask it is previously, they were at the Food Court near Malaysia Boleh which is now taken over by another shop and then shift over to the present food court, but the lady answer is she doesn't know about it.

There was a guy behind me asking how come it was close for a while the other time, the lady reply was change owner.

Fishball mee sua @ $4 which I find the taste is different from the one which I like.

As per normal

10th Nov (Sat)

There's an eatery place which is not very far from my workplace that I have wanted to check it out.  But no chance on weekdays as I have to be back before the stated time to wait for the transport to bring my mum's back.

Since I'm working today, and I need not rush back as Saturday, my mum don't go to the Day Care Centre, I decided to check out the place.

Not all stalls are open.

I had pig organ soup @ $3.50

With yam rice @ $0.70

11th Nov (Sun)

Early in the morning, I ask my mum if she wants to go church, at first she said she doesn't want to go.  After a while, ask her again, she's ok, so we went church.

After service,  was asking her if she wants to go home or go Harbourfront makan.  She wants Harbourfront.

She had sliced fish mee sua @ $5

I had braised duck rice with an add on @ $3.50.  This duck rice has been around for a long time and the guy still recognize me.  He told me, when I know you, you are still young.  You should be younger than me.  So I ask him, if you don't mind I ask you, how old are you.  He told me his age, his age and my age, not very far apart.

The soup for the braised duck duck

Usually, will go walk one round and look look see see ferries to Batam, then see if my mum wants to have anything for brunch before going back.  But my mum complaining her leg tiring after crossing the overhead bridge, so told her we go the nearest KFC sit sit then we go back. 

The dining crew of KFC overheard me telling my mum we go find a seat to sit.  He ask me, you eating, then point to me the kiosk machine, I feel like telling him, I won't come in and sit and not ordering anything.  You have to let me settle my mum first mah before I go and order foods.

Order a snacker @ $4.20, used to be $4, now the price increase by $0.20.  KFC now is say NO to straws.  There's a notice stating if you really need straw, approach the service crew.

As I need a straw so that it will be easier for my mum to drink.  I request a straw from the service crew, who insisted that NO straw.  So I point out to the notice, then I was given a straw, and the service crew told me, i'm following instructions.

Went for the 5pm Sundays at the Park workout, each participant was given a box of snack by the RC volunteer, guess there's balance from an event, so we were given a box each.

Halfway through the meal, my mum said that her rice was spicy, so i had to switch my chicken rice with her's.

4th Nov (Sun)

Ever since I started working in this job, I didnt manage to go for workout often.

* Picture taken by RC volunteer - if nothing pops up on Sunday morning, I will go for the workout near my place.

Nowadays, I do not knock off on the dot.  So to say, I am not able to make a trip to the supermarket to buy grocery as I need to be home before the stated time to pick up my mum when the transport send her back.

A trip to the supermarket on the day when my mum does not go to the Day Care Centre is quite relaxing as I do not need to watch the time and I can take my time.

Before going back, a cup of mochaccino from McCafe @ $4.
