Dim sum by M&S

I have been craving for dim sum but just never had the time to get some. I was intrigued when I saw some har gau and siu mai in Marks & Spencers while I was grabbing some last minute groceries (we’re middle class like that).

I had the har gau and siu mai for lunch…

It looked right, but it was disappointing. The har gau’s wrapping was too thick and the siu mai had too much vegetables and garlic. I really like garlic, but believe me, it was too much even for me. Would I buy again? Probably not, unless I get desperate. 

Well, short post this time. I need to go and breathe on the unsuspecting Denty. I’m nice like that.

I’m not tall enough

It is my company’s policy to send us to be poked and prodded health screened every few years. I have just had a preliminary screening (the proper one is in a couple of weeks where they actually take real life blood from my veins) where they noted my height, weight, questionnaire and etc.

DR: Based on our current calculations, your BMI is on the high side, indicating that you are overweight.

Me: Not really. I’m just not tall enough.


Two years

It has been two years since my mum passed away. It still hurts every bit as much as it had two years ago. Memories of her still bring on pangs of loss and yearning. Every time I see a rainbow, I look for her.

Love you mum, so much that I have never realised when you were alive.


New beginnings

It has been a year since my last post. Today, my mum would have been 61 and I don’t miss her any less than I did a year ago.

A lot has changed in the year, new addition to the family (the Tomato, so Wizzy is now a big sister), we moved house (with almost half an acre of garden to play with)… Stuff I wish my mum is here to see. I can’t change that but I can ensure that she lives through me and my children and I hope to capture some of that in my future posts.

Happy birthday, mum.


Dear Mum,

Happy 60th brithday! I miss you so much, mummy. I hope you are having a good time in heaven, but I would rather have you here with us instead. The garden is lovely, and you would have enjoyed eating the fresh peas and strawberries with Wizzy. We could also go to Regent’s Park to look at the beautiful flowers you loved so much.

There is so much I want to say to you, so much I want to do with you. I can’t hug you physically, but mummy, I can give you the biggest hug in my heart.

I love you so much,

Your Muks
