Hey peeps, I am back after a week of busyness in the last week of the last decade. Almost the entire Yap family from near and far came together and had over a week of celebration and merriment – from Christmas to Boxing Day to pre-wedding dinner to the church wedding, hubby’s birthday and finally the culmination of all the excitement on the first day of 2020 – the Yap’s first wedding of the new decade, the wedding of hubby’s cousin, Melissa.
Besides pigging out every single day (though mindfully on my part) with relatives, I am so enervated from the lack of sleep the past one week. Part way through the wedding dinner last night, hubs booked Grab for me and the girls to go home while he stayed on at the hotel until the dinner ended around midnight. We only managed to clamber onto bed at 11-ish p.m. and I was already up at my usual school-going day time of 4:30 a.m. to get the girls ready for their first day of school after a 6-week break.
This year will see Alycia’s last year in high school, first year of morning session for Sherilyn after 2 years of afternoon session and Cass’ last year in primary school. Cass miraculously managed to remain in the first class this year!
This morning, Alycia bugged me to chauffeur her to school instead of taking the school van as she wanted an hour extra of sleep in the morning after a late night. So I sacrificed another day of exercise just to make my eldest happy on her first day of school.
I still managed to squeeze in 15 minutes for a quick walk on my Peace Path before rushing home to begin my Grab mum duty. This path never fails to give me the quietness and serenity I need every morning.
Now let’s talk food! Here’re what we’ve been digging into the past 8 days:
Pot-luck Christmas dinner at hubby’s aunt’s house on 25 Dec 2019:
Sumptuous Christmas lunch at Khan’s Restaurant & Cafe @ Sphere, Bangsar South after church service on Christmas day. It’s our second North India lunch in a week. The first was at Tasty Chapathi and I think I’m now hooked on North India cuisine!
After a heavy lunch, hubs dragged us to Sunbather for coffee, cakes and ice-cream, diet be damned! Another feast was awaiting us in the evening!
To be continued with more food pix in the next post 😬
Happy blessed New Year to all my readers!
