Lovely day - Pandan Kaya Cake
Adehhhh why is it that each time we hv our other half at home we tend to get much more busier? for some reason i know i am.. waking up earlier then usual.. preparing brekkie.. preparing lunch and not forgetting tea break and the dinner.. arghhh maybe he will gv me more incentive this month? hahaha
So ok enough abt his surgery.. after two entries abt him i think its abt time Rima the founder of Bisousatoi takes over the center stage hahaha.. i am doing good.. never been better.. a little busy but hey whats new ey.. we are hanging out at home.. going out only for his follow-up check up.. i will be telling a lie if i tell ya that i never take the chance of exploring new cafes here in Singapore which we did after his check up lol.. i think i am addicted to that.. yesterday we went to this cafe at Tanglin Mall called Brunetti.. lovely place.. delish gelato and the opera cake?? woweeee I loveee it!!
With him not being able to drive for the next 6 weeks at least.. i hv to be the driver and honestly? i hate it... i hate it if he sits next to me while I'm driving.. i think u know why?? his eyes may not be fully functioning but his mouth is totally fine and thus the "take this lane" "turn left now" "do u see the incoming taxi" blah blah blahhhh .. at first i was all quiet but yesterday i told him "i am behind the wheel and u need to learn how to shoo shoo ok"
Anyway i cant stay long.. we are planning to take our god daughter, Marissa out for a day to celebrate her achievement in her PSLE.. well done dear! uncle and wawa are so so proud of u and hopefully u will get into the school that u want!
