Bees & Honey?

During our usual weekly walks out to the park outside school last week, we found a bee hive on a small tree just beside the children's playground.

We called 999 who referred us to NEA & within the hour, they sent pest control down to deal with it before the bees got dangerous.

They sprayed some insecticide on it, all the bees flew out & after some distance, dropped dead. We saw so many dead bees all over the pavement & surrounding area. Thank goodness no one got hurt!

Yummy Tempeh & Beancurd

Fresh untainted tempeh from the wet market from a parent

Fresh beancurd too

Fresh herbs seasoning

Flavourful seasoned batter

Yummy homemade fried battered beancurd and tempeh. It was so nice! *drool*

Of Food & Games!

A very lovely Jap-inspired mini garden I found on my colleague's table. Nice & quaint hor? There's a Mac coffee stirrer spoon to arrange the arrangement if it gets messed up!

A fun & interactive bumblebee game we borrowed from the Toy Library to play in class. The caregivers enjoy it very much!

My lunch today, got my favourite baked beans!

Famous tau sar piah that I bought from the bakery near my house (branch). The original outlet is in Hougang, Lor Ah Soo area. $0.50 per piece, can choose between sweet & salty. A parent of mine asked me to help her buy 20 pieces leh! It has a very soft, melt-in-your-mouth texture!

Fresh mango!

Bloody Toe Nail!

I guess the pictures speak for themselves eh? Haha!

After the painful jab (2x) to numb my toe area

The worst part was when the doc used a soldering iron kinda tool to literally burn the flesh at the base of my toe to kill the nerves. I could smell smoke aka burning flesh & the area that got burnt turned black! Gosh!

Ingrown ToeNail AGAIN!

Sob sob....the doctor just confirmed that my poor toenail (same toe) is ingrown again! She has given me a course of antibiotics & ointment to apply as the toes slightly inflammed & swollen.

Oh dearie me! Dread the period of no wearing of covered shoes, having to take a break from my gym & aerobics classes & pain! Doesn't help that I have a super low threshold of pain! ARRGHH!! *fainz*

Poor Body Parts!

Yups! Old injuries flaring up again. Had to go get them fixed. Argh! Now have difficulty bathing & smell like some ancient dodge with the herbal wraps!

Class Outing to the Sikh Temple

We brought the kids to the Sikh temple at Silat Road (near SGH) on Monday in celebration of their Vasakhi Festival.

Everyone who enters has to wear a head covering (can be a scarf or turban) & remove all footwear & wash their feet before entering.

They serve free vegetarian food 24 hours daily.

Piping hot to die for fragrant milk tea

Chappati, rice, green bean curry & cauliflower curry potato

My fav!

Very nice delicate sweet dessert
