GIRLS' NIGHT OUT

Last night was girls night out at Marina Island for Lai Yoong, Nancy and I. The theme for the night is floral attire.







SITTING STILL FOR PHOTOGRAPHS

On rare occasions, Junior will sit still and allow himself be captured on photo.



MIN MIN'S SECOND TRIP TO THE VET

Min Min was at the Animal Clinic this morning. This is his second visit.  The first time I brought him there, the little fella was feverish and he had lost his appetite.  He was limp.  After a course of medicine given by the vet, he recovered.
I noticed that he had a skin infection and bought a spray from the pet shop to treat it.  Bt still the infection hasn't fully cleared even after bathing with medicinal shampoo. 
This morning Dr Murrugaya gave him a jab and medicine to apply to the affected area. He was also given a tablet for de-worming. He weighs almost 2 kilogrammes. The vet said to bring him in for vaccination next week.
And yes, I have decided to adopt him as well.  Now I have 3 furry sons.


FAILED ATTEMPT AT SOAP MAKING


I tried making soap using Camellia petals that I got from my friend's garden but somehow they ended up looking like what you see here.  Sigh!

SAMBAL FRIED RICE WITH PRAWNS AND PETAI

I had this dish for lunch on Saturday.  I only ate half of it.  My aunt asked to taste it but ended up eating the other half.  Yup.  It was that delicious.
