Fish & chips, potato leek soup
RaeAnne told me this morning that she 'want to go Nai Nai house after school', 'Nai Nai say will bring me one' (please forgive the bad Singlish). Must be because MIL came to visit yesterday to bring us some bread and kiwi. I am secretly glad to have a mid week break away from her so I called MIL who agreed to pick her up after school.
So, I got to meet up with XY, a second time Feb09 Mummy and her 2 month old baby gal Cammie. :) We had one for one lunch deal at Swensons and both of us ordered baked rice. BFing mummies are especially hungry. Haha.
Since RaeAnne is not home for dinner, took the opportunity to cook Fish & chips today. All the deep fried food that is not suitable for RaeAnne and taking up space in my already cramped freezer compartment. Needed a soup to go with the western meal so I decided to try making potato and leek soup cos I had a lot of potato and leek at home. I took charge of the soup since it's a new online recipe and the maid doesn't know how to cook it while the maid fried the french fries and NTUC tempura fish fillets. :)
Hubby said it looks si4 mo2, si4 yang4. So, how's the taste? I will leave him to comment since he said he reads our blog. ;)
After dinner, picked RaeAnne up and sent MIL for her karaoke session at Bedok and went with RaeAnne to Tampines Interchange cos there was a pasar malam and Uncle Ringo theme park rides. RaeAnne wanted to sit on the boat ride. She made a brave attempt to hand paddle the boat but she was too young to steer. A well meaning aunty looking on commented that she is too young and told us to just move the boat along the side of the pool instead of letting her steer in case she stands up and falls into the water. So, that was that. Daddy was spooked enough to bring her out of the water. Luckily it was just a trial run cos no one was around to collect $3 for the short 1 minute 'ride'. She didn't want to go for any rides and was happy to sit in the 'unmoving' train. In fact, she said she want the train not to move. Duh... Not a very adventurous little gal. :P
Bought a dress for Mei Mei for my cousin's wedding and her birthday party in Dec. Kiddy palace was out of size L (up to 10kg, 80cm) so I ask them to order & reserve for me in the early afternoon and they were very prompt. Asked me to collect by evening time. Daddy joked that Raelynn is getting married cos it was way too long for her. Deliberately not including the pic of the dress so that it won't spoil the surprise for our guests.
Looks like I got to stick to Size M (up to 8kg, 70cm) though Mei Mei has already exceeded the weight limit (she is 8.425kg 2 weeks ago). Cos Mei Mei is only 67cm and I don't think she will sprout by another 10cm in 2 months time. But I'm afraid the chest area will be too tight. Duh... so difficult to find clothes for her. :P I'm tempted to make 'Strawberry Shortcake' the theme for her 1st birthday party but hubby protested that I'm 'cursing' her. Touche! ;P
