As I am moving my Fujioh hood to the new place, I need to find a replacement for my current home.
The delivery men came for the installation. They told me that I have to top up another S$60 as mine was a NON standard model. What to do? I didn't know how to remove.
After much bargaining, he lowered it down to S$50.
So they went about setting up the new machine and guess what, they didn't even need a screwdriver to remove the old one. All it takes it two men to lift and bring it down!!!! I was shocked!
Okay to comfort myself, it was indeed a heavy machine and I and the helper won't be able to do it alone!
These days, workmanship is really expensive!
Enough of my foolishness, today is Shrove Tuesday also known as Pancake Day.
How time flies and I am also getting older. I already saw Easter Chocolate being sold in the supermarket.
Seeing my son grows into this teenage phrase, I can't help but wonder what had I done wrong in the past.
He was into his nonsensical behaviour again and this time round, I suspended his phone line. Seriously I wonder when he will grow up and learn some form of respect. Luckily I am not depending on him during old age! It is soooooo painful with him going through this phrase. It is hurting all of us!
On a positive note, daughter got another 90% score for her 听写. I can see the happiness in her when she gets such achievement. She sure been working really hard as Chinese is her weakest subject. As she doesn't do CA1 anymore, I really am not too sure how to find out how she is coping. I pray she does and am enjoying the learning process.
To reward her, today I am making Brownies pancake . I hope it will go well with the new tub of Chocolate Snicker ice cream we have. Yes again, I took Kitchen Corner recipe. So you can guess it is really that good.
Verdict: This pancake has a brownie like texture
