Do join me on this Heritage Food Trail if you have the time. I am sure it will be an opportunity to get to know other dialect food cuisine.
This year's PSLE seems to be earlier than usual. It is also a time whereby, other levels of primary school kids are to stay home so that the 12 years old can take their examination in total peace.
I seriously can't imagine myself going through this in 3 years' time. I think the stress will be higher than that of my son's. For the 5 years difference, the level of difficulties has increased a lot. Even my son commented that his sister's work is much harder than during his time.
These two days will be delegated for e learning. That is to say that the kids complete their school work via the computer. I seriously wonder how much is being taught by this method or rather the kids are just simply going through the action. Well, as long as she completes them, I think all will be okay.
Our breakfast this morning is Glutinous Red Bean Cake (桂花糕), which actually make up of glutinous rice, red bean paste and osmanthus syrup. I usually don't take rice as breakfast but since this is sweet and I think we are going to have light lunch later on, this is a good choice to fill you up for the morning.
I decided to take some time out and went shopping with my girl. After all, her birthday is just round the corner and I think it is best to let her pick her own birthday present. A good chance to spend some fun time with her. These days, her life is practically filled with enrichment classes. Already I am making a mental note to throw some of the classes out by year end so that she has some breathing space to enjoy the process of learning. For in P4, she will be in for a more challenging year. I just don't want her to have a burnt out because of all these activities.
My skin has taken a toll because of the stress, thus I really needed to take more collagen related stuff. The natural way is to have some 翅群角茨實鸡脚汤. The last time I made this, I mis-read the recipe and added in chicken meat instead of chicken feet.
So now I am having the right version. hahaha... totally collagen loaded!
According to the recipe, it is supposedly to improved on 健脾, "temper"? and remove the dampness.
This is a picture of how this 翅群角 looks like. I seriously don't know what it is. Perhaps some sort of fish fin? But my cousin told my mom that it is very good for the skin.
I am looking forward to tonight for hubby will be home. Yea!
