Slow Sunday...

In my Sunday's Best :D~~

Yesterday, we were at Goodwood Park Hotel having tea, snacks and durian puffs..*yumz*

Saw this nun with her secular companions there having tea..When they'd finished their meal, they went to the counter where the durian puffs were being sold and started talking to the saleslady there..The nun was looking at the different durian puffs displayed at the counter..and she actually reached inside the counter, picked up a megapuff, held it in her palms, squeezed it a little and sniffed at it..Both I and hubby were watching her and we were both saying out loud.."She'd better not....." and SHE DID! She placed it back onto the plate where she took it from..And I'm sure the saleslady saw it coz she was chatting with the nun and her companions when this was taking place and she didn't do anything about it..Yecks!!!There it was..that piece of soiled durian megapuff sitting right on top of the plate of Megapuffs..bleah..

Hmm..and on the subject of nuns..I dunno but I thought that they are supposed to give up 'worldly pleasures' but I've been seeing them in hotels, restaurants eating good food and driving around in Mercs. I remember another incident when I was at Hagen Daz's and there were this group of nuns sitting next to us, having their icecream. When it was billing time, 2 of the nuns whipped out their gold credit cards and another one took out a wad of notes (all in 50s) and insisted on paying for the meal..The one with the cash won eventually...


Our friend, Roger just returned from Cambodia for a short visit and he brought for Aidan some clothes which he'd gotten from the factories there (who manufactures clothes for the major brands)..Unfortunately, Aidan can't wear them coz most of the stuff he gave us look like this..*pengz*

the rest of the stuff can be seen here :)

Thanks Roger anyway :)


Hubby suggested we should start having a more healthy lifestyle aka exercising more..I guess he's hinting to me that I've gotten a little tall horizontally..Anyway, I've been wanting to be more active too I was pretty game for anything..

So, yesterday morning, we started our first attempt at going to the gym downstairs..It wasn't too bad actually..Did the bicycle thing (whatever is that called), the stairmasters and walked/ran a fair bit on the dreadtreadmills..

It actually felt good to be exercising. I think I can chase after a bus now without huffin and puffin like an old lady.. Our weekly golf sessions helps alot I guess..It may seem like not much strength/effort is needed for golf but one does get tired by simply driving the ball repeatedly..

And starting from tomorrow, I will be starting my swimming lessons *yipeee~*..Hopefully, by the end of next month, I would be able to swim like a fish and lose a few pounds along the way too!!!!

okay..we were debating over this..should one eat (jus a li') before exercising or exercise with an empty stomach..I was saying the former and hubby argued the latter..

Aidan looks so cute! :P

Hey, maybe u could pass on the clothes to ashleyneo, alisonrae, shawny17 or twinkle42... heh.
Jul. 27th, 2003 10:56 pm (UTC)
Ashley's daughter yeah..coz it's small enough...too big for Erin now but too small for aly's and shawny's kids..

Another problem...the material is those thick type..cotton+polyester..not suitable for our weather...only suitable if kid's gonna sleep in aircon room..

Heheh. I get those clothes too whenever MIL/FIL go to BKK for holiday. *pengz*

I know what you mean about nuns. There was some hooha not too long ago about monks driving Mercs. Apparently not all nuns/monks have to take the vow of poverty...
Jul. 28th, 2003 01:54 am (UTC)
At least these are for li' girls and Aidan definitely cant wear them tho they are too thick for Singapore eh? Eh..why are they sellin these in BKK? I guess for the foreigners from places like Australia and States..

Really??? Vow w/out poverty..that's somethin new to me. I didn't read abt the hooha at all..when was that and wat was it about? I just recall some in Streats or New Paper when the reverend from Renci Hospice took offence to somethin a character in Ch8's Holland V said..abt monks driving ard in Mercs..The reverend said this was akin to slander I think...not that sure tho..

But interestingly..I seldom see monks in those places I mentioned..usually nuns..

Jul. 28th, 2003 12:23 am (UTC)

Jul. 28th, 2003 01:49 am (UTC)
Not yet..we've been lookin out but none so far tho his upper gums are rather hard and there are this whitish stuff there so it may be teeth sproutin soon :D..

My grandmother does that! (my dad's mother) she did the SAME thing for when my brother and I were little and now does it for my kids.

Not only the wrong sex, but the wrong sizes (as in too small) I never could figure out if it is just that she purposedly wants me to have to go through returns or what. *that would be like her)

Re: *howls*
LOL? Ur hubby's mom is a riot..! How can she not know the gender *grin*..Sizes as least it's sorta understandable becuz kids grow up so fast!

Regarding the exercise ... my aerobics instructor once told us to eat a li (at least half an hour before exercise), otherwise where will one have energy, sure faint... ;)

Aidan looks so Cool. How did you manage to find so many nice outfits for him? I had problems looking for Caleb, cos' all shops are so biased, 80% for gals, 20% for boys, and not nice.....
Jul. 28th, 2003 08:59 pm (UTC)
oh..hehe..I shop like crazy for Aidan..i tell ya..everywhere I go, I scour for nice clothes for him.. I think taka has pretty cool lookin stuff..like to go Lifeshop at Paragon/Taka too. This particular shirt is from Babysurf and I got it from the motherhood fair bit I think u can also find it at Birth&Beyond's shop at Tanglin Shoppin centre..

Yeah..the shops tend to cater more for the baby girl market..I know most of us moms of boys are somewhat exasperated by the miserable choice available for our kids. That's y I love to shop abroad ..like Australia. Their kidstuff is wonderful!

My mum saw the pics of Aidan and she said that he's hang4 ni1 (in Hokkien)... Means he's growing at a faster rate and size than most babies that age - it's a good thing :)

But she also says Aidan will probably be on par after 1 year old because this phase passes quite quickly :)

And yah - like you I sometimes wonder where in the world do these nuns/monks/etc have so much money to spend on the luxuries of life...
Jul. 29th, 2003 07:11 pm (UTC)
Heh..actually I think Aidan looks 'older' in pics coz I tend to dress him up more maturely..size wise, he's actually on par with the other kids his age...and ur mom is right too..after abt 9/10 months, their weight/height growth tend to slow down and will and other kids will prob catch up ..
