8 May 2016 ~ Happy Mother's Day

Wishing all mothers, step-moms, carers, grand mothers, single moms and dads .... and all those who love to mother others, a Happy Mother's Day.
I had lovely surprises waiting for me in my study.

The day was perfect. The weather was cool and dry. All moms received a special blessing from the Parish Priest during Mass. By the time Mass ended, we were ready for Part 2: DIM SUM!
This is just part of the food we ordered. There were heaps more.... all were busy tucking in instead of taking photos.

My kids..... my life.

13 March 2016 ~ Welcome To The Golden Club!

Guess who turned the big five-oh?
Derrick celebrated this milestone at the Crown Atrium, with family and close friends. 
To be honest, the birthday boy had no idea what was planned for him for the day.... and neither did Bryan. I couldn't risk telling him earlier cos he's not exactly a great secret keeper.

The day started with a birthday blessing from Father Chien, followed by a lazy afternoon and plans for "a sushi platter from Woolies and a bucket of KFC dinner" as per Golden Boy. (Poor man thought he was going to have a quiet non-birthday 50th birthday celebration).
Here are some random photos taken at the Atrium. Enjoy!

With Philina, the genius behind all the fabulous cakes featured in this blog.

I'd like to wish my family and friends, far and near, a happy Lunar New Year. May the year of the Monkey bring you prosperity, good luck and good fortune.

May this coming year also bring you sparkles of fun, joy, love, lots of delicious food and closer friends and family ties.

A heartfelt "Thank you" to Helen and Andrew, for opening their lovely home to us, hosting their annual Lunar New Year celebration. The food were cooked to perfection, as always.
 A bevy of beauties dressed up in red and traditional dresses.

 Preparation of 4 dishes of Loh Hei in progress! A mammoth task indeed!

21 December 2015 ~ RSAMU PartAY!

Another year has passed and I am truly blessed to be given the opportunity to work alongside such brilliant minds, awesome friends and dependable colleagues.
Here's to another (un)eventful and fruitful year ahead.
Below are some photos taken during the Ward party. Enjoy! Please tag those who aren't so that they can see them.

Yoohoo! Guess whoooo!! It's jolly ol' St. Nick!

St. Nick arrived on his iron horse.

Keep still, PJ!
