Mirthful Monday (Edition T3)

Changed our dinner date to T3 because Belle had to fetch Gary from his flight back. Cutie chose the restaurant. Laogong and I were super early and we shopped around.

Finally all arrived slightly after 2000.

Small little surprise for Belle.

Thanks to Belle for getting it for me. I can't wait till end of the month when I'm going to BKK to get it on my own :p

I was looking at printing my blog into a book but there are too many pages. Must edit the entries a bit and see if it's viable!

Yet another good day :)

Even better one to come!

Mirthful Monday (Edition JB)

Bb and Kylie delivered the cake over. So sweet of them. Took the cake :p ate in the car on the way to JB. Hee. Yummy!

Today's JB trip ended at 1430. I've a class at 1630. Special arrangement due to the upcoming examinations. Shall head home to rest before going to class and also tonight's Devilz April's Dinner!

Drinking my tea and thinking of Shar! :)

Mirthful Monday!

I'm thankful for (Sunday) today's 5th week.
Spent more time than usual with Laogong on a Sunday.
The 1600-1730 kids was treated to yummy Tau Huey by him too.
Nice cooling healthy treat on a warm day.
Had dinner nearby at AMK Hub even though Laogong suggested Orchard.
Our choice was good :)
Enjoyed ourselves (as usual) at iChiban Sushi.
I'm a beginning drinker for Coke.
Well, it helps me burp.
Anyway, this evening received a SMS from a parent.
It warms my heart that I am really being appreciated by parents.
I know, I know, a lot of them are my angels who always support, encourage and feed me!
I know they believe in me and have faith in me.
I'm very lucky to always have their trust.
Even back then, the parents in school were always very good to me.
They know I'm the not-so-usual and not-so-conventional teacher but still,
they believed in me.
Thank You.
Today, receiving this SMS, simply further encourages me.
Thank You again all of you :)
Time to enjoy my Monday!

Enjoyed and still enjoying ...

Despite being at the centre from 0730 to 2000, it was an enjoyable.
Forgot to bring my bread and Laogong delivered them to me during his precious 1h break.
During my break at 1530-1600, I dashed to the neighboring salon to trim my bangs!
Ended the day's lessons at 1730 and slacked till 1900.
Marked and prepared for tomorrow's lessons.
Yeah! No need to wake up @ 0700 tomorrow!
5th week!
Laogong has no lessons!!!
Which is why I won't be at prepare my lessons earlier in the day at the centre.
Anyway, headed to Liat Towers for dinner with Laogong and his friends.
They had a farewell dinner for Peter.
Vegetarian food. Remember I went there with bb when I was on a year long vegetarian diet.
Reached home.
Enjoying myself.
Snacking and watching TV.
I'm so going couch the whole night and sleep late, wake up late!
Going to miss papa and mummy though, not going back tomorrow.
Good night all!

Fantastic Friday!

Everyday is simply fantastic.
Usual lesson on Friday morning.
Went to Toa Payoh to settle some errands and buy lunch for bb and I.
(The theme is Orange because my darling Kyan said that it's his favorite color! Bb and I was like ?!?!?? Why orange?!)

Love this pic of her!
Initially Kyan was in a bad mood.
Must be because he just got up when I was at Bb's place.
Saw him when the bus came and he just woke up. Hee.
After his shower and lunch and tempting him with nuggets, his mood was good! :D

Yes, those were photos taken with him and he bottom, photos taken BY him. Haha.

Left and went for classes till 1915.
Had our monthly PEFX at 2000.

Limited but quite yummy mains!
Not my first time but theirs.

Greedy and ordered more than planned for desserts.
Bought another NOW CD.
Number 81 already!

Wonderful day.
Fantastic Friday.
Great weekend to go.
La la la la la la :)

Wonderful Wednesday

Yesterday, while I was talking to one of my kids, I told her that we all work hard for a good life. The kind of life we want. It's totally fine to want to lead a good and luxurious life, only if we work hard for it :)

I am lucky. Mummy gives me pretty much of a good life since young. Of course, I've to work hard. Study hard. To repay, to earn recognition, to make sure I deserve what I'm given. Not a very smart kid, I had to work extremely hard. Most memorable in my secondary school life, my A'Math teacher asked if I want to stop taking the subject because I wasn't doing well. My whole time studying, no teacher ever ask me to give up?! I refused and preserved on. From a F9, I worked hard and got my A2. I think I did my 10years series assessment book 10 times, really.

Since then, I told myself I will not give up on myself and anyone. If I don't, how can you? :)

Yummy cakes from Teresa! Thanks! Sent Laogong to pool while I did some work at the centre. With cravings for curly fries (no, we didn't head to JB's A&W), we headed home to airfry some! No need to go A&W anymore! This is yummy! :)

Last night, I took out my earrings, wanting to polish the silver so that I can wear it ... Oh my ... I dropped them :(

Decided not repair this old fella :( so I gave it a new life :) made it into a necklace. Haha.

Looks a bit like T&Co but whatever :)

Smile :) It's a beautiful life :)

Brunch time!

I think I always look like Jacky Chan (big nose) in the morning.
Whatever. Haha.
Laogong and I enjoyed the last of our off day.
Watched TV till 2plus in the morning.
Woke up just now to find that it's almost 1100!
Time to go for brunch and get some work done! :D

Chez Papa French Bistro

Had wanted to lunch at Chez Papa but it wasn't open. Headed to Old Town, our usual, instead. Slacked there for quite a while. Nice. Relaxed. The toast was extremely buttery! Even for a butter lover like me, I find it extremely thick!

Had our usual massage but at a new place. Nicer. Even better. Shopped for grocery and it was already dinner time. Decided to head down to Chez Papa again. Thanks to Laogong for sacrificing. He is not a French food person but he still took me there :D

Had the pâté all to myself. Laogong doesn't like it. He had more of the seafood. I didn't order foie gras! :) We were so full after dinner. So sleepy! Haha.

As of 2100h, my 1-to-1 tuition slots are all taken up. Apologies, but I can't in more. Certain group slots are still available though! :)

Hello Pinky Monday!

Good week ahead!

Sunday night / Monday morning is usually the best time to read up and study. Don't have to wake up early. However, anything beyond 2am ... Is still not manageable! Good night all :) Good week ahead!

There is no remedy for love but to love more

After a long day's work :) dinner with loved ones :) Bliss.

Had so much fun in class today. Haha. Extra lively. Time is really slipping by so fast! Enjoy every moment. Monday again!!! Woohoooooo!

What else can I say but life is beautiful :)

Laogong and I started to begin our Saturdays earlier nowadays so that we can at least have a good and decent meal in the morning. Then for the rest of the our 13hours at the pool/centre, we usually buy many buns / bread to last us through the day.

Time with the kids fly. Since I started 'out' this year, I enjoy quality time with the kids even more. With a maximum of 6 in my class, I feel that I know them even better. I feel my passion and fire blazing :)

I also have good and supportive parents who are always encouraging (and feeding) me! How blessed I am :)

Saturdays always make me feel emotional. Haha. Maybe because it's one of the day when I'm not with Laogong for more than 13 hours. Maybe it is because it's the only day with the most classes and I see the largest number of 'different' kids. Maybe it is because the following day is go-back-to-Bedok day!

Whatever :) Life :) So beautiful and wonderful!

Laogong looks like he is in the army! Super short hair!

Haha. Greedy us ... We ...

Ordered one bomb!

Happy Saturday and Hello Happy Sunday!

In the mood to cook ...

Sick of tabao-ing and only at 1930, I decided to cook for Laogong.
Watching some 10minutes movie made by an ITE kid. Bawling my eyes out. Can't blog now!

Before bed ...
