Weekend roundup

It's the last day of the Chinese New Year festivities and we ended it nicely with a yusheng tossing session with my parents and brothers. Even for a small family like ours, getting everyone together is not always an easy feat. When we do meet, we always have such a nice time. Thanks to my sis-in-law for treating us to the delicious yusheng salad!

When it comes to busy people, few can beat Amy whose social calendar is always packed to the hilt. She has visitors flying in to Singapore every week, yet she found time to invite us for lunch on Saturday.

She organised this little gathering so I could come face to face with Aunty Lucia. I don't know what I have done to deserve this honour but I was thrilled to bits. I got to know Amy after I read about her in the newspapers. We became friends after I attended her talk.

I became friendly with Auntie Lucia after she left comments in my blog. I particularly enjoy her blog because she's so well informed and she writes with such ease. Naturally I was most eager to meet her, I even urged CH to come along to join in the fun.

It was fascinating to hear both ladies discuss about their mutual friends, some of whom are well heeled people whose names I often read about in the papers. Some were their childhood playmates or schoolmates.

I wished we could continue chatting till late but everyone had dinner plans that night. I am grateful for the time together. It was fun!

Cheeses, smoked salmon, cold meats, pasta salad, lots of fruits, and wine too.

Auntie Lucia, me and Amy.

Hey, thanks Blur for the mention in yr blog. Gdness, I hope Amy n I didn't come across as awful name-droppers! Fact is, Amy knows these pple as family or friends whereas I know them mostly in my line of work.

Also, looking at the pix I think my outfit shld be worn strictly at home in future :(

Auntie Lucia - I was intrigued by what you both know! I do like your top. I'm always attracted to ethnic prints like that. It's very pretty in real life. Maybe what we need is a better camera!
