My son was in cheery mood yesterday. While we were relaxing in the evening just before our dinner, during one of my conversation with my hubby which I can't recall what topic we were talking about, my son butted in and here is goes ...
son: I think you are having menopause
son: it hits women between 45 - 55
me: how do you know?
son: I learnt this just now
me: huh must be the sex education from school
son: I learnt it from my tutor (who also teaching him Science)
me; so what are the symptom?
son: you will have bad mood swing etc etc
me: so what must you do?
son: YOU have to be positive!!! always think of the bright side.
me: how to be positive thinking when you are so naughty
son: hey, at least I am not a delinquent. so that is positive!
me : faint
These are the moments when he is not naughty, he can be really hilarious.
These past few days had been really hot. I take showers at least trice a day. Ya, bad for the skin but I just can't stand the stickiness.
Had been longing for a good dose of Cendol! During our last trip to Malacca, though we went for the famous Cendol, I still find that it lacks something that I had long time ago. I think commercialisation does affect the quality of food these days.
Now let me tell you the story behind this Cendol. I like my Cendol with a good dose of soft red bean so I went on to prepare it. Took me 2 days to prepare this pot of red bean! You won't believe it!
Guess what, I ended up throwing the whole pot away. No matter how long I cook the beans, it just won't go soft. I think I took at least 4 hours cooking that!
In the end, my helper said that I should not have put in the sugar that early, I should have waited for the bean to turn soft before adding the sugar. Now she tells me. Well, lesson learnt.
So a fresh pot of red bean was done this morning and now I am a happy bird.
A great way to cool down on a such a humid day.
And cheers to all the Teachers. Happy Teacher's Day.
