A warm, kind word is enough. A smile might do it.
But why so impatient?

Something suddenly may happen that is unexpected and unwanted – we all face disappointments, betrayals and losses. It’s the past – even if it just happened yesterday or 5 minutes ago.

If you find yourself hurting today because of a disappointment in your past, draw that line in the sand and leave it behind. Life is now, and there are so many great things ahead of us. (:

Friday was a case of double happiness. Ate is back from her month-long home visit! I was happy to see a familiar pair of slippers at the door when I came back home on Friday.

Sharing some of the dishes I cooked during this month:


spent a Sunday's morning in the kitchen cooking up a storm. Broccoli, chicken wings, fish&squid, salmon.

Salmon fried rice for the parentskins


Seeing that Ate is safely back home, went for Hi-Tea at Orchard Hotel with the girlies.

Thanks to TSW, I was able to sign up for New Balance Real Run for free! I was enticed also by the fact that it's a cross-terrain run which covers 3 different terrains - trail, sand & road. An added challenge that I don't get out of Great Eastern Women Run.

This race was male-dominated and I found myself keeping to the sides most of the time so that I don't get knocked or elbowed by fast runners. Was a plus point having so many guys running by my side because they act as pacers for me.

The route was amazingly scenic too. Sun, sand & sea - what more can you ask for?

Pushing back all negative thoughts towards the end required some effort but yes, it was oh-so-worthwhile conquering those demons.

Bumped into aunt and cousins too!

A treat for myself at the end of the race! Super loving Ya Kun's Kaya Peanut Set!

Sissy's 24th & she had a blast with her boy! I'm glad she found someone who has made her happier than ever. Enjoy the PwC journey! May you find what you want in a career there :D

Tuition musings:

Beautrice was attempting a math question and I watched her as she worked her way through the problem. She stopped and wrote "Beep!" right beside her working. Puzzled, I asked, "What does that mean?" She replied sheepishly, "It means my brain has stopped working!" I burst out laughing and ruffled her hair. :D

Towards the end of the lesson...
Beautrice: Teacher Serene?
Me: Yes?
Beautrice: You came earlier today right?
Me: Yes.
Beautrice: So lesson will end earlier right?
Me: Yes.
Beautrice: ooooooooooo......... (and she continues with her work)

8.38pm. "Yay, cake time!" Turns out that it's her dad's birthday today. A cake that kept her going. How simple and nice. (:

Quote from Desperate Housewives: "To begin the journey of change, we must pull on the boots of self-awareness."

and of course, when you're in an uncomfortable situation, just walk away. You'll feel instantly better. 眼不见为净。
