So I got him an ice-blended mango smoothie. It's way too hot for me to eat a full meal on an afternoon like this, so I ordered coconut ice cream with soft mushy red bean paste drenched in coconut cream. It was so cool and refreshing, I can eat this for breakfast and dinner too. Yummy!

Since SK finished school early today, I decided to bring him to his favourite Thai restaurant for lunch. Needless to say, he ordered his all-time favourite - soft shell crab with curry sauce and rice. I wouldn't say that's the best thing to eat on a scorching day like this...
The office is my sanctuary.
I love my office. It's where I find peace, quiet and sanity. It's not that I don't love being at home, but I feel so at home when I'm at the office.
Here is where I actually start my day. I have my morning cuppa and my breakfast, write my blog, read the papers and visit my favourite blogs.
Here is also where I make my living. Though I work at home on most afternoons, I prefer working in the quiet confines of my bright and cool office. Unlike at home, there are no distractions like dogs barking, internet disconnection, bad cell phone reception and so forth.
The office is also where my kids spend some quiet afternoons, revising math with the tutor or doing homework under my watchful eyes.
On some weekends, I even spend a couple of hours here after dropping the kids in town. It's the ideal place for me to hang out while waiting for them to finish their outing.
I sound like I don't have a life outside of the office but gee, looking at the intense heat rising off the tarmac, I'm so glad to be in my little sanctuary.
