Picnic food

May started off with a picnic on a hot and sunny day at the Singapore Botanical Gardens. *beams* For some reason, I was dying to go for a picnic with Donald. haha. Of course I asked a few other people along just for the fun of it. Turns out only Joanna turned up. haha. Poor Donald and I had to practice restraint to not be too smoochy in front of Jo. hahahah. Just kidding. =P

I had a good time that day, just chilling at the gardens, under the shade, and eating and chatting. We saw heaps of pots of orchids for sale, pitcher plants and venus fly traps. I had itchy fingers and teased one of the fly traps into closing. hehe. How cute!

The rest of the week passed by quietly, and we met up with a few more interior designers just to get a feel of what we want, and how it would look like for our new place. The kitchen is giving us quite some dramas, with me wanting to have heaps of counter top space and trying to find the right spot for the fridge. MEH. We’ve got a perfect shaped kitchen and dining room! How did designing get to be THAT problematic?? *grumbles* But yes, all in the name of fun so far. =P

Just realised that this one entry took almost 2 weeks to be written. I started it on 8th May, and now it’s the 24th May. Doh. I have been procrastinating. So yar. =P

Of course so many things have happened between now and then. Good things. We found a new gadget at Sim Lim (to be set up at my mom’s place later this week), we met up with the same IDs again, did more planning, went to the zoo last weekend, met up with Ken & Leon before they left for Japan, cooked babi sioh for my parents on a Saturday (that ended up on the dinner table @ grandma’s), my stuff arrived from Perth etc

It felt soooo good to be able cook something from scratch again. A new recipe and success on the first time too!  The pork was tender enough, and there was enough gravy. =D The whole shopping experience was fun too..ventured into the unknown by shopping at the wet market. hahaha. Basically went where the crowd was when it came to shopping at the stalls. I reckon I would have saved about another $10 had I shopped at the wet market instead of the supermarket.

Ah wells, I’ll get a chance to do that this long weekend. hehe. Gonna trawl through my magazines for another decent recipe to try.

Donald and I finally decided on the layout of our kitchen. One that we are very happy with, but we are still deciding on the doors. And the cost. Oh goodness, the cost. I haven’t even confirmed the renovation works yet and I’m starting to feel very poor. Doh. But it is to be a home, so I am willing to invest in decent renovation works. I think the hubby is the one feeling the pinch. A very big pinch no less =P

went to the zoo the last weekend, free entry courtesy of Donald’s workplace. We spent 3 hours walking. Utter madness, but it was fun! My feet were sooo sore after that. I haven’t been to the zoo for ages, so it was really nice to check out what was new at the zoo. A couple of new enclosures..and of course more things to pay for as well. Wanted to get Daisy a small backpack with detachable animals on it..but thought surely there has to be something better than that. =P

got a shock last night when Thomas nearly jumped out of the window. stupid cat saw a lizard on the wall and gonna pounce on it on the wall, just beneath the open window. I gave a yell when that happened. Not that it’d do anything to save him if he had jumped out. The food and water bowls were beneath the window as our dear friend knocked some water over as well. Totally forgot about lizards in Singapore. We don’t see alot of the household ones in Perth. Meh.

We’ve been giving Marcus and Thomas a work out every evening too with the laser pointer. haha. It’s really funny to see them following it, esp. Thomas. I’m torn between saying Thomas is silly and smart. He’s silly cos he’ll follow the laser beam around, as far as we can point it. He’ll follow it into the room, and then spend a while looking for it and come out looking somewhat bewildered. He’s smart cos he knows that the laser beam comes from the laser pointer. Take the pointer out, and he’ll come to you, sit/stand in front of you, and then he’ll look to the ground.

*sigh* what will I do without the both of them. =P

long weekend up ahead! We’ll have a couple of errands to will probably nuah on Friday before hitting the weekend. We’ve been having such late nights no thanks to meetings with agents, IDs and family. It’s gonna be an early night for me tonight. *yawn*
