April updates

April has come and (almost) gone. I'm starting to hate Mondays. Who says SAHM doesn't have Monday blues? Getting up early to prepare Xuan for school is a chore. I had to pry my eyelid open every Monday, after the weekend of indulging over-sleep till 8.00 a.m. That is why I hate Mondays.

I am now starting to dish out some decent stir-fry pork and potato stew, tomato steam fish, fried fish, toufu fish soup, peanut soup, herbal soup, deep fried prawn balls, fried bee hoon and fried rice.

As for the kids, Xuan is having her SA1 soon. I am most worried for her Chinese oral. She utters two words at a time when presented with a picture conversation. She can pause for as long as 2 minutes in between each sentence and I doubt she is able to bluff her way through with that.
