Today I brought Cass to school for her to retrieve some books from her desk, as requested by the class teacher. It’s her first time in school in over 3 months and the school looks eerily deserted and dusty. There are still no markings on the floors and tables for social distancing, which means that the school has not received any directive from the MoE yet on school reopening anytime soon. When I asked her if she missed school, she said “kind of. I’ts SO BORING at home!” I’m happy that she misses school; we’re just waiting patiently at home for the MoE to announce when primary school kids can return to school. Alycia who is in Form 5 will be going back to school next Wednesday and she’s not too zealous about it 🤨 Anyway, she just needs to be in school on Wednesday and Thursday but whether this arrangement is just for next week or the new norm until she completes SPM is yet to be confirmed.
Cass brought this miniature cactus to school for an experiment early this year and she’s so glad that it’s still thriving beautifully after months of being neglected at the balcony. Before she left, she brought the plant to the bathroom and watered it.

After takeout lunch of Wanton noodles and feeling thirsty, someone with buttery fingers brought out the GLASS bottle of blackcurrant cordial to pour some into her cup but as clumsy as ever, the glass bottle slid out of her buttery hands!!! It happened so fast I didn’t even hear the sound of glass breaking and when I turned back, I saw a scene that looked like some kind of gory murder scene at home:
“Oh. My. Gawd. I don’t know how to clean up this mess!” was all I could cuss. It was triple trouble! The glass broke into a million pieces and scattered few meters away. Same thing happened to the sticky sweet cordial – it splattered on chairs, computers, everything! And the sticky cordial seeped underneath the solid marble table with NO raised leg. With no MANpower at home, we could not life up the dang table to wipe the cordial away.
I pray that this sort of real bloodshed will never ever happen to me or my loved ones, ever! Even the sight of this makes me turn to jelly!!
An hour later and with my feet and fingers bloodily poked by super tiny and sharp glasses, we finally finished cleaning up the bloody mess. The toughest part was moving the almost 1-tonne marble table to wipe off the sticky cordial syrup underneath 😡
Mother of all nightmares for OCD mothers!
And some cheeky fella who was prepping lemon curd as filling for her tarts just had to join in the commotion. She dipped her hand onto the
blood cordial and poked some jest just for some good laughs. 😆
Our dinner tonight: stir-fried chives with fish cakes, steamed eggs + century eggs + minced pork, stir-fried Gai Choy (Chinese Mustard) with dried shrimps and beef rendang from hubby’s shop.
