Something 'Bout Dining by the Lake...

When at home, take advantage of tropical fruits! 

Home grown ciku, dragon fruits, apples and persimmons.

(Although Apple isn't a tropical fruit.) 

We all woke up before 6 a.m. today (including Sean who hasn't seen the sunrise since months ago hahaha).

We were to send Sean off for his first driving lesson. Well actually just to listen to the compulsory talks, but still, exciting! 

My little brother all grown up. 

Because he requested, so it was delivered. 

AKA Korean instant noodles. 

Mum was saying she wasn't going to buy anymore instant noodles for Sean because of its unhealthy content but Sean worked up a sad frown and my heart instantly went out for him. He's really my heart walking outside of my body. 

Home grown as well! 

I promise we don't own an orchard hahaha. We just really like to have our fruits organic and natural and accessible!

Going out to dinner in a bit.
Love the blue skies, the light breeze which comes with a hint of sweet scent from the plants grown at the garden.
This pair of red shoes. The right shoe was split and I was upset because it's my only pair of non-sports shoes, non-sandals kind of casual/ semi-formal shoes, and because of my flat feet I was highly advised against high heels. 

I grumbled to mama about it though in mind had plans to get it glued ASAP. 

The next day I realised mama had fixed it for me! Super touched because she hadn't had to do it for me but she did despite her busy schedule.

Thank you mummy! I love you! 

I'm incredibly fortunate to have you as my mother.
We dined at Crocodile Farm. Contrary to its name, it does NOT sell alligator meat nor were there crocodiles to be seen. 
Started off with Appetiser. Rojak.
The usual suspects: Peanuts.
Gorgeous view. 
I looked as though I was coerced into putting up a smile. Noooo. Trust me I was genuinely elated to be with my family.
Ooh and I finally got to wear a piece of clothing (ie the laced dress) apart from my daily baggy T-shirt and loose fitting shorts. I practically live in those. Comfort > _____. 

Dressing up is an instant mood lifter but to strip your undergarments/ fitting clothes after a long day out (or even a few hours) can also be unbelievably soothing and refreshing. 

Can anyone relate or is it just me?

We were being captured against the sunlight, hence the darkness.

Tried using a filter to brighten it, but this is the best I could do. 

Then the dishes were presented. 

Stir fry Kai Lan.

Fried tofu.

Crispy chicken! 


Don't the dishes look presentable and appealing? 

Eager look in Sean's face.

These racks of lamb ribs were finger licking good.

Impressively tender, juicy, and the melt in my mouth sensation, performing this thing I believe to be magic because it was SOOO good we had to exercise self control to not lick the plate clean. 

We couldn't stop sticking thumbs up for this dish. It was excellently prepared.

Crab vermicelli.

Happiness is...

Enjoying a meal together with your family.
