Just finished my website

Memories of my kids when they were small will always stay with me. I still remember my teenage son, the day he was born. How you looked so intently, defiantly the hour he was born. His mischievous pranks starting the day after he was born. I created the website Little Kids Games documenting the games that I found useful and earning a living through this and my many other lifestyle websites ten years ago but closed it down when I joined my previous employer, in order to be in line with their regulations. I thought I'd retire there, but life is never the way we plan. I left.. moved on. And rebuilt from scratch. Do check it out. It's got educational games for kids plus some fun stuff brought over from my own childhood memories and adventures with the next generation, my kids.

Durian Fiesta!

Mom's god daughters visited her with durians . One felt the four or five boxes of that luscious fruit wasn't enough so she went to get a few more boxes of the best.

Once she was back, we had a durian feast, Singaporean style !

We certainly had a blast. *burp*

Nonya noodles

Went to my parent's home for dinner. Mom made nonya noodles, the way my dad's family does it.

It's like the regular hokkien mee but with no bee hoon. Just the yellow noodles. Streaky pork sliced thinly. Lots of big fresh prawns. Yum

What makes it special is the grated cucumber heaped generously on the noodles. Add finely sliced omelette and garnish with shallots which I forgot to add. It was delicious !
