Week 15b: Down under

Back from Sydney – brrr, it’s colder than I thought! We braved the rain to walk down Market St, eat at Darling Harbour and catch a ferry ride to Manly. I’m also starting to show but not enough to benefit from “royal treatment” 😦 Some friends now guess I’m pregnant, including a few colleagues, most ang mos still find me Asian thin and my flight co-passengers were clueless when I couldn’t lift up my carry-on suitcase. Hmmph. That said, thank you, SIA Singapore Girls.

Look forward to our anniversary retreat next weekend. Also really miss the parents, thought of swinging by our Penang home to visit for a few days but our schedule seems too tight. Counting down the days when they return in a few months.

Back to my weekly home soup routine. Now cooking: 红豆汤 – Red bean soup.

Week 15A: A visit from the parents

This week just flew by. Work, dinner with parents, rinse, repeat. Turned down an exec ed director training course in China/USA because the dates are too late in the pregnancy. No luck taking leave this week with all the developments at work though I managed to bring parents to a mid-week evening show of Shakespeare in the Park – Macbeth. Kudos to the Singapore Repertory Theatre cast … and dad for staying awake the whole time! 😉 Flying out to Australia next week. Hope all goes well!

Soup of the week: 花生汤 – Skinless peanut soup. Family favourite though hubby can’t drink it without 油条 – crispy fried (and oily) “breadsticks”!
