5QF & Saturday Memes

I have been having a busy week with activities for the kids this whole week. We went to Pasir Ris Park, the airport , Science centre and outings with the grannies. It’s finally Saturday and  I’m getting a little breather and have some time to chill out before another week of fun filled activities for the kids this school holiday.


1. Is there a special dish you prepare that you are famous for?

Not really but my specials are chawanmushi, teriyaki chicken and mash potato.

2. Are you (did you) go Black Friday shopping ?

Yes I shopped online. I bought antivirus software.

3. What are your strangest holiday traditions?

We don’t have any holiday traditions which we follow. I guess it would be not to accept poorly recycled presents ( junk) which would only clutter up our house. I seriously promote giving cash or gift cards if one in unsure of what the recipient likes. 

4. Pecan or pumpkin pie? (She actually asked “Apple or pumpkin?” I just T-giving’ed it!)

I personally like apple pie. I don’t think the kids would like to have pecan or pumpkin pie to eat.

5. When will you put up your Christmas tree?

Not this year. Maybe when Tiger girl is 2 or 3 years old as she is sure to tear the tree to pieces and take down all the decorations if we put up a tree this year.

1. There’s a Time Genie. She can put you back in time to relive a day that you loved. If you could turn back the hands of time, what day would you relive if given this opportunity?

I would like to relive my wedding day and bask in the moment of being “queen for a day” again.
2. What did you do yesterday?

 The kids and I went out with my parents to the airport for lunch. They had fun going down the slide at Terminal 3.

3. You’ve been given 3 parachutes, but there are 4 people who need them. Who will you not give one to: Mel Gibson, Charlie Sheen, Kim Kardashian, or Simon Cowell? Why?

It would be Kim Kardashian.  I’m bias towards the guys.. they are much better eye candy then her.

4. Where are you going and where have you been?

 I’ll be going off to Bali next month for a short vacation. We have been to Penang, Malaysia and Hong Kong earlier on this year.

5. They say that books read as a child make more of an impact on a person than books read at any other time in life. Are there any books that you particularly loved, that shaped the way you think when you were little?

 I loved reading Nancy Drew books when I was young. I guess reading them helped fuelled my interest in crime and mystery.

6. What do you look forward to most in the next six weeks?

The end of the school vacations so I can finally get back  to some normalcy.

7. What was the last text message you received?

Have a safe trip!!” by one of my friends.

8. Do you prefer to call or text?
I prefer to text. I find it easier then to call as the baby keeps on snatching the phone when I am on it.
9. What were you doing at 9PM last night?
 Trying to put the kids to bed unsuccessfully.
