The day so far

Mum had her regular hospital appointment this morning. She wasn't feeling so well today. Her head was spinning so much but we still went ahead with the appointment. As usual, the doctor could only prescribe more medication and suggested she sees a ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctor about her dizziness. I guess mum's not keen to see any more doctors. She has another dental appointment tomorrow morning. Her life already revolves around doctors.

The morning immediately became brighter with the arrival of Amy. She met us at the hospital so she could visit our orchid garden to select some flowers for her family's Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow.

An orchid lover, she enjoyed herself thoroughly at the farm. We went round harvesting flowers in colours that matched the Thanksgiving theme. We even drove to our neighbour's farm to buy some orange and yellow ones. Though she claims that she knows nothing about growing orchids, she knows all the orchid growers in Singapore because of her previous involvement in the Singapore garden shows.

We dropped the flowers off at her brother's sprawling estate where the party will be held. It was already buzzing with activity. The caterers were delivering stuff and workers were busy setting up tentage in the garden. The most exciting part was taking a peek at his $3 million cellar. Good thing I'm not a wine connoisseur or I would never leave the cellar!

I like the sound of the wine cellar!

Sorry to hear about your mum. I hope she is feeling better today.
