I don’t live with my parents but if I’m in Singapore, I make it a point to meet them up very often… at least once a week if not more. To spend quality time with them chatting and this usually also involves eating cause my family loves food more then I do! I want to live by example and I do hope if I ever have kids next time, they’ll remember that as much as living life to the fullest is essential, family is important too.
This time I took my parents to a Hong Kong Cafe at Katong. We all haven’t been there before and my parents were craving some good Hong Kong cuisine that evening.
Here’s mum giving the menu a look through.
And here are some of the stuff we decided on…
I’ll give the food a general 6/10 but I did like the noodles more then the rest. The place had a lot of newspaper cuttings and raves but maybe my expectation was too high cause compared to the food I had in Hong Kong… these paled in comparison.
I was due to leave town a couple of days later and had some issues I needed to sort out regarding my flight so we headed down to the airport.
Greedy me wanted more food and ordered wanton soup!
My friends are always amazed at how much I can eat while my mother always says how I’m not eating enough cause she claims I haven’t put on enough weight! How contradictory! I think it’s because my parents can really eat a lot!
Truth is I do eat a lot but I also do gain weight… just not as much. But I’ve compared my current photos to those taken about 5-6 years back and the difference is stark clear! I guess people are just used to me being small and that label stuck even though I’ve gained quite a bit through the years. I’m about my ideal weight now which is great… now I’ve to worry about not over eating!
We did some shopping and I took my usual outfit of the day shots…
I wore a lace jacket with a belt over a tube dress that day.
I just realized it was a monochrome outfit! The thing is, I never plan my outfits… I rarely have the time for that… so it’s grab and go in the mornings. But I guess I already have a distinct idea of what I like so the outfits usually works for me. That’s probably one of the reasons why I like dresses… they don’t need much co-ordinating!
Anyhow I had to send them home before midnight cause dad had a soccer match to catch that night. He’s one of those die hard soccer fans.
PS- I’m letting go of the black and white printed tube dress for $18 inclusive of normal mail. It’ll fit S size girls.
