A Taste of England


With whipped cream.

And a dollop of strawberry jam.

Absolutely wicked.
And these are the digits of the chef who made this scrumptious meal one evening.

The scone was truly reminiscent of England! Thanks E!

This Has Not Been Edited

I kid you not. This is a real strawberry. It fits into the palm of my hand. It is that big.
It tasted great too. Succulent. Sweet. So much juice. The best strawberry I have ever had.

Found in the fat lady's shop in the outskirts of Seoul, Korea, somewhere....She sold them ever so cheaply too. Hubby, Arrow #3 and I had a feast!

New Ways

A strange lunar new year.

After more than 20 years, the family is not all together. If I recall right, this would be the first time.

Arrows #1 and #2 are across the South China Sea, interacting with other members of the extended family. We were all together for Christmas, so I suppose that makes up for it. But it's strange nonetheless.

We will all be experiencing something new over the next few days. That would be worthwhile blogging about.

Overall though we are glad that each one seems to have their own personal relationship with the Lord, and making seemingly right decisions. Thank the Lord for that grace and mercy!

Lessons from Mr Balloon

First he was used as a visual aid to a lesson about integrity, character and how that is far more important than performances.
Then he was taken into the Toddlers' Room.

And that was when near pandemonium happened.

Lesson learned - listen to an experienced mother who has gone in to see her children in a toddlers room with many other toddlers holding enough goodies for her own children but not for the rest.

That's a definite no-no.

Sure enough, he was asked to leave.

And Mr Balloon ended up stuck here instead - on the window blinds....

I wonder how long before he gets taken away.... and who knows? Perhaps another lesson from the whole experience!

Dont Forget Her

She will push her box of food down the stairs to get the lid off and grab a quick bite.

She will push the vase of flowers over to get to lick the water from there instead of her own bowl.

She will mew and mew at you to get your attention so that you will sympathise and give her grub.

She will rub herself on your ankles to persuade you to take pity and feed her.

Then she will sprawl herself all over. Like this.
Meet Mittens! Hahahaha! The other member of the Chen Clan!
