Today is the eve of the big princess’ final exam whereas next Sunday will be Drama Queen and Cass’ turn. The heat of the exam fever is burning in the house!
Hubs was still in Ipoh for a gathering with his former classmates, leaving just us girls at home on a Sunday. Just before we left the house, Alycia told me that she’d prefer to stay home to do revision… last minute one that is, which is just so typical of my cool as cucumber eldest, who is on the brink of teenage-hood. In less than 2 months, she’ll be officially a teenager. I can’t believe I am a mother to a soon-to-be teenager!! Boy, I feel old!
After I sent my car for a wash, we had brekkie at the Indian restaurant.
Nasi lemak is for Drama Queen, who can really stomach sizzling hot food.
My favorite tosai rawa was not available today so I settle for tosai telur. Check out someone with an impatient hand pinching on my tosai coz she said she was so hungry she was going to die!
Roti telur for Cass.
And murtabak ayam (which was seriously delish!) takeout for the big princess.
For dinner, the big princess said she wanted to stay home to revise. So I cleared the fridge and freezer and cooked these:
Meat-less fried rice with lots and lots of garlic, big onions, grated sweet potato, kafir lime leaves, coriander leaves, sweet corn kernel, baby peas, shoyu and pepper.
Pork bolognese penne pasta (cooked last week) reheated. And sauteed organic lettuce with garlic.
The coming week will be a stressful week for the big princess. I feel stressed out looking at what she has to study. Her Cambridge Math in English is stressing me out big time. I know it is stressing her out too as she has been asking me very frequently for help. Sometimes I am unable to help her coz I never studied what she is studying now during my time and we studied our Matematik in BM. Good thing is, the big girl seems to be taking it with a pinch of salt. The 3 girls have inherited their daddy’s happy go lucky attitude. Next year, the hubs will feel the stress as Alycia’s high school will be increasing the fees.
If you know of anyone who can come to our place to provide private tutelage to Alycia in Cambridge Math in English, please do send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
