my mum is off to perth tomorrow for a one month fellowship at Princess Margaret hospital for children. she’s never left us for more than a week and this time it will be for 4!! i’m just glad i’m not a child anymore because i’d definitely be a whole lot more mum-sick than i would be for the next month.
like any true blue Singaporean would do when they’re about to leave the country for a pretty long while, she chose dimsum as one of her last local meals. so we had the dimsum alacarte lunch today at Peach Garden restaurant, Thomson Plaza.
the restaurant was ultra packed because it was a public holiday. and the service staff all bordered on rude, or just plain ignorant, because they couldn’t cope with the crowd. the person answering the phone snapped at my mother when she tried to push the booking back by half an hour. now that is not the way to speak to someone, is it?
after lunch, we went to visit my grandma at All Saints Home. it’s my first time visiting and the place is really depressing ): everything reeks of antibacterial agents, much like the smell in hospital wards. and quite alot of the elderly folk there have dementia, so they often try and attract your attention to ask for help to use the toilet, or to bathe, because they can’t differentiate between the workers and the visitors. it really is quite sad.
haha my grandma was in one of her non-lucid moments, and kept asking who my brother and i were every 5 minutes. at one time she looked and me and thought i was my mum. haha the latter was so pleased with the remark because she said that it means that she still looks young -.-
i brought ritz along so i took a couple of pictures of all of us in the courtyard outside. at the same time, i was practising my macro floral shots hee hee!
and then, i taught my mum how to do jumpshots HAHAHAHAHAHAH
LOL my stomach muscles are still aching from laughing so hard at the photos when i first uploaded them!!
i’m gonna miss my mum!! ):
