This is going to be a mixture of events and quite a long winded post..
There was once my in-laws proudly told me that Kieran was very enterprising as he was telling them about selling his “masterpieces”. I didn’t take much notice and brushed it aside. Then on Monday I saw one of his “masterpiece” which has this on the bottom, RM3/5..
I couldn’t take the whole of the picture..I find it kinda scary..
Me-What are you going to do with this drawing?
K-Sell to my friend..
Me-Who’s going to buy from you?
Me-Really? I think you buy from him also, am I right?
He’s looking down on the floor with his classic guilty face..
Me-Hello,,answer me! Have YOU bought from him also?? (volumn up) You better answer me or else no dinner!
K-(looked up slowly) and nodded his head..
Me-What? Yes or no?
K-(in a small small voice) yes..
Me-I’m so disappointed in you, how much did you pay for one drawing?
Me-Are you sure?
I went on to lecture him about the importance of money and the money was given to him for emergency purposes, extra food, need to make phone call etc..but definitely not for this purpose. Then I made him kneel on the cold hard floor and pull his ears till my MIL coaxed him to say sorry. It took him quite some time to do that..showing again how stubborn he is! Mind you, he was actually very hungry and we were all eating dinner while he was kneeling!
We went back to ApOh’s place for 2 days as she went travelling again. I had to babysit my little nephew so we brought him to the office. He’s so adorable and of course all eyes and attention went to him. Poor Kylie didn’t like it at all and was soooo jealous. The night before ApOh left, ApOh was scolding her maid..
K-Why u scold kakak (maid)? afturds (afterwards) she don’t (will not) cook for you, how?
I was so surprised she said this as I TOO always scold my maid but she has not said this to me, but then again, I cook most of the time so maybe she didn’t see that as a threat to me! hahahahaha…
My nephew, a splitting image of his daddy (my younger bro)!
He was not used to the environment in our office and was probably looking for ApOh, so he was crying all the time, the maid carrying him rocking him up and down also didn’t help! He only fell asleep out of exhaustion!
I haven’t had much time to prepare bentos for the kids…and here are 2 miserable ones I managed to make one day..
For Kylie, no space for the fruits..so had to put in another container..
The egg was supposed to be in the shape of a star but I didn’t clip on properly so it went out of shape! So I disguised it lor..this one is for Kieran…good thing he didn’t complain about the deco!
I’ve been on a bread baking frenzy..and the first attempt was brioche from a Chef Wan recipe and I was surprised at the amount of butter that was required…but the aroma from the oven was heavenly….
Tasted heavenly too…(fresh from the oven la..but after a while it turns kinda hard..I was told it’s bcos the commercial ones had bread improver and softerner..but they r not exactly healthy ingredients…)
