We had brunch with the girls’ grand aunt and visiting grand uncle from New Zealand at Han Room today.
As we were alighting from the car at the car park of Gardens Mall, I had a major heart attack. Alycia who was in the midst of getting down from the car, missed a step and fell onto the car park floor with a loud thud! Hubs’ car is an MPV and the passenger seat is much higher than a regular sedan car. Thankfully her fall was cushioned off by my thigh and she didn’t fall onto a hard tar road. The both of us were in shock. She was too shell shocked to even tell me if she had hurt her body but my thigh hurt as a result of her body hitting me before she fell flat onto the floor. Thank God there was no bruise or graze, except that she turned pale white from the shock of the fall. ** PHEW, sweats!! **
The main purpose of going to the Gardens Mall today was to get myself a new swimsuit but I didn’t find one that I really like, though I had tried on a few at the Speedo and Arena shops. When we were at Robinsons, I saw a few sexy maxie swimsuits which I really like but the big girl kept bugging me to hurry up as she wanted to go home to study for a test tomorrow. Plus the queue at the fitting room was a long one, so we left. That’s why I hate shopping with the girls on a public holiday. I’ll have better peace of mind shopping on my own on a school-going day when the girls are in school. This gives me an excuse to go retail therapy again next week 😀
For dinner, we scrapped our plan of eating out as the big girl wasn’t in the mood to eat out on the eve of her History and Chinese composition test. So we cleared our fridge and walloped all the leftover food.
I reheated the kafir lime leaves fried rice that I cooked for dinner yesterday and blanched some ladies fingers. I also blanched some vermicelli to go with the leftover chicken curry that the girls’ grand aunt gave us yesterday. Drama Queen helped to cut avocado, cucumbers and capsicums.
The crisp and sweet raw capsicums tasted really good with a drizzle of Uncle Jeff’s Berenberg Creamy Parmesan Caesar dressing. Hubs bought this salad dressing for his Arugula Rocket salad, which he eats in the morning for breakfast along with hard boiled eggs.
Berenberg Family Farm is an Aussie brand and they have a tasty range of dressing sauces, jams and condiments.
