We spend a lot of time with Amber and noticed she hardly threw tantrums. She was very well behaved and we spent a lot of quality time together.
I am teaching Amber how to write with the guide of dotted lines. Only 2 rows have examples in dotted lines, the rest, I 'dot' them myself with black crayons. My cheeky fart commented on the dots.. eeee... look like 'da pian.. eee.. orh see!!' meaning look like a trail of shit lah. You see, cheeky or not ?
I'm not sending her to kindie yet but I try teaching her to write at home. I always tell her she has to learn to write before going to kindie (white lie .. a threat actually!)
She monkeys with the crayons here, as if it's jossticks. She actually said :
Pai pai guanyin ma ! give Amber chocolate ah ...
Aiyo, really lol !
She feeds the fishes. Sometimes more than twice a day. I tell her.. fish pau-pau (full) already. If you feed more, the fish will vomit !
It was also a weekend of leftovers. On Sat, I made konlou wantan mee for lunch. A friend gave us a pack of famous Koon Kee wantan mee before the New Year and I kept in the freezer. Was still fresh when defrosted and I made some pork wantan with prawn soup (from leftover peeled shells). For garnishing, I defrosted some (leftover from Chap Goh Mei) braised mushroom chicken feet. I used the gravy for the sauce , along with dark soya and oyster sauce. Yummy and very economical lunch.
On Sunday, I defrosted some Petaling Street Sze Ngan Chye roast duck from our pot luck gym gang gathering. Wanted to copy D'Lish's Duck Confit Pasta and came quite close. Here's how :
Fry skin first still crispy. Fry garlic in olive oil, throw in the meat fillets and some chicken stock and boiled pasta. Give it a good stir and serve. Yummy also
I saved the bones and not so meaty parts for making porridge. Still sitting in my freezer, waiting for another lazy Sunday afternoon.
Leftovers can be interesting too right ?
