Morning rambles

Today is colleague's last day....sob sob...yesterday we went to To Dine For in Chulan Square for departmental lunch farewell (another lunch being planned today) . To dine for's Lunch Menu is rather reasonable considering the ambience. I am not much of a food reviewer (I leave that to our DADofFOUR) but then I have heard that the food here is authetic and rather good ! I had my usual Thai Laksa - it was rather spicier than the last time I had it! And for the first time ever- I had the lovely conconction which name I can't remember (see why I can't review food- imagine that line in your local paper- ooh yes the food is of excellent quality- the thingymajig with the chicken was succelent while that green salady stuff with the walnuts was simply divine) but it had dried shrimps, peanuts, lime and other stuff and you put them all on a betel leaf , ladle the sauce and then roll the betel leaf and put the e.n.t.i.r.e thing in your mouth- it was scrumptious indeed.

With the goodbyes come the hellos...There is a new girl today- have gone to say hello to her..looks allright..a bit sedate and conservative...although, that might be what people say of me when they first see me heh heh-- SUCH a demure and gentle lady....(not).

Sophia is over the moon over a tiara that she has just received from Auntie FTM- thank you Auntie FTM! She loves it by the way. She is having a little costume party on Saturday and she has wanted to be Genevieve. I was thinking of sewing pink material on her existing gown (any gown). Mom took her shopping for her dress (she wanted to give her grandaughter a proper princess dress) and it seems that Sophia has TURNED DOWN all the princess clothes as it DID NOT LOOK EXACTLY like the one in TV! Aikssss!!!! How can I pass on my attempt at sewing it as the real thang then????

This costume thing is still not resolved- daddy is thinking of being ZORRO but is hampered by his glasses..
- mommy is a 70s retro provided there is a WIG somewhere. Neighbour has kindly offered a clown suit but i think neighbour himself wants to wear clown suit right? ..hmmmm we shall see on the day. Spongebob?Surgeon? Clown?

Am suddenly busy at work- busy is good right?? Kids are at home being bored (as usual) - have asked them to do exercises (hohum) - hey we took them iceskating oledie what....
