easter brunch with the biswas family

it's always easy to hang out with our pals. no pressure to impress or make small talk. we can always count on them to give us a dose of reality. we all have kiddos in similar age range and they play brilliantly together.

alana and blake, age 3. (reuben, napping)

on easter morning, we decided to pop by the new prive at asian civilization museum and it was dead quiet. the food and drinks left much to be desired but nothing can really go wrong when you're in the right company. the dads set up a quick easter egg hunt with leftover eggs from the day before and they had a blast running around! 

and even before nap time, i got massively hungry which was such a shame!! next time we'll just have to hunt down better food options!!

in the (actually... gim's) kitchen - png kueh

popped over to G's place last month to learn how to make png kueh.

honestly, i didn't get blessed with any culinary skills! but G on the other hand... so so talented and sweet to organize little cooking sessions so we can learn (and of course EAT!). so we sat around all arvo, chatting and kneading these pretty pink kuehs into shape.

confession... if you ask me to make any of these on my own, i would not be able to!! 

oh AND... it was easy to spot mine. they were doughy and not tasty but decent looking. so typical of me, its all about how it looks never mind about the taste! 

thank you G for having me!! and always feeding us to the brim!! D is very excited whenever i say im hanging with you cos it means that im learning new dishes to experiment at home!!

some bunny is in love....

haha no, there's no tutorial but putting m&ms in a glass jar is not rocket science!

but this is ALL of his love in a jar for his little crush, E. since he started in big boy school, he quickly developed a crush on this particular young lady in school. and boy did he fall in love bad! he reportedly makes her bed before naptime, walks her into class and helps her with her bag and when they're apart, talks about her non stop. bless him! 

and at easter, he specifically gave me instructions to get m&ms in various shades of pink (but get THE MOST light pink, please!!) and left a cute little note for her. im not sure how her parents feel about a whole jar of chocolate but fingers crossed she loves him back!

growing up too fast, bubsie!

always a massive highlight in our family! cos whenever mum's in town, it means the yummiest dinners, bubba gets the best care (albeit spoilt..) and loads of date night! 

thanks ma for visiting and spoiling ALL of us silly!!

our two little furkids....

on any given day, this is how you will find them. snuggled together on the same pillow!

even though till today, frankie is the least cuddley dog (D teases that he's a recovering sociopath), drags soiled laundry out from the laundry basket and occasionally makes oopsies around the house but i reckon it was the best decision to adopt frankie. only because what he's done for our musashi. 

there was a point where muu was really depressed, poor appetite, limping and plain miserable. then frankie came along and became his little pal. these days, it's like he has a new lease of life and dashes around the house with frankie and eats with gusto! love that about them both!

we just came back from the vet after checking on some skin allergies only to bear news about his age, cataracts and heart murmurs. given that he is 14 this year, i guess it's hardly surprising. its heart-breakng but such is life. once his skin irritation clears, we plan to bring him to the beach (even though he hates it!) but gotta make every moment count and have him around with us as much as we can!!
