Oh my gawd this blog is so dead, I can't even.... I used to blame it on Instagram but now I have to blame it on Dayre too!! It made blogging so much easier when you can do it from your phone.. Check out mine at http://dayre.me/gretachan
Am posting about our long overdue fun back in August!! We had lunch at the notorious Tim Ho Wan at Plaza Singapura, back when they haven't opened branches yet, and we queued for an hour plus for our table!!
Judging from mom's smile, the queue must be worth it.. =p
I am now just sitting here, on a rainy day, with a broken heart and teary face, typing my final words for you. I think you would know, and you would understand, that this is my comfort place, a place to pour what I have to say.. I am sorry I didn't get a chance to say my proper good bye to you.. It all happened so fast.. Too fast that it seemed like it had been planned that way all along..
I still can't believe that you are gone. You really are gone forever from my life. I know I have lost you the day you introduced us to that gold digger-greedy-ungrateful-unfaithful-free loader woman. But now, I have really lost you, for good. And I can't believe that I actually miss you. I miss you a lot. You have left a hole in my heart, and it hurts. Right now, it hurts so bad. So bad that it made me feels it would be inappropriate for me to plan my biggest day in my life. It hurts more with the fact that, you can't be there. You won't be there on the biggest day of my life. You won't be there with your smiley face watching me marry the love of my life. You won't be there when we pour and serve you our respect cup of tea to you. And the fact that you have been looking forward to it just squeezed my fragile heart.
I am sorry that I haven't been talking much to you. I'm sorry for all the missed bonding time. I'm sorry that the last time we talked, I still nagged you about all the junk food that you ate. I'm sorry that you didn't get to eat the cuttlefish that you asked me to buy home. I'm sorry that you waited too long to see me got married. I'm sorry for all the pain that she caused you. I'm sorry for all the pain that I caused you. I'm sorry for your pain, that you felt like you had to keep secrets from us.
Thank you for your love. Thank you, for my mama. Thank you, for my sister. Thank you, for being you.
Now you are in better place, you are happy, you are with Our Lord, in peace and no longer suffer.
I will always miss you, and I love you.
So this is it, a blog post only for my little cutie, Little Kent.. He is in Primary One right now, and he is one curious boy, he asks a lot of questions every time!! He watched this cartoon on YouTube about a little girl who help her bear and teddy friend to make dumplings; and he said to us that he would like to make dumplings too!! I always told him that when he grow up, I want him to be a Chef, and he takes it seriously..=p
So we planned out different activities in the kitchen where he could actually help and takes part in it without creating too much mess (coz my mom will freak out)..
Kent helped in jelly moulding process..=`)
After that, he put them in the fridge and wait form them to be jelled..=`)
After jelled, he took a small spoon and fork them out one by one..=`)
Then he helped to store them in a container..=`)
Then he enjoy his jelly while they are cold and nice..=`)
Kent took instructions from mommy on how to fold the dumplings..=`)
So he prepared the minced meat..=`)
and he glazed the dumpling skin with egg yolk and then folded it..=`)
then he arranged them nicely on a plate..=`)
He repeated the process until he got as much dumplings as he wanted..=`)
and tadaaahhh.. Kent was happy with his dumplings..=`)
then my mommy used them to make dumplings soup..=`)
Making Spring Rolls.
Kent helped older sister to make spring rolls..=`)
The process is almost the same with making dumpling, only this time we used a lot of veggies!! =`)
You can't see it but Kent was holding his first spring roll..=`)
and then mommy fried them and they were delicious!! =`)
That is all for "cooking with Kent" time.. Have you cooked together with your family yet?
