Hello Weekend

Had a pretty awesome day yesterday. Got up and had breakfast, and pottered around the house while +3 had to head to the office for a bit to get some work done.

Finally got round to making my embroidered card, even though I stabbed myself once with a needle and sliced a bit of my finger. It was fun, but I need to find a better (safer) way to poke holes. Lol.

A couple of days ago, my dad called. This was our conversation-

Me: Hello?
Dad: Hello. (small pleasantries) I have a tip for you.
Me: Huh? What tip?
Dad: I'm free on Saturday.
Me: Ohhhh ok. What do you wanna do? Wanna go out?
Dad: I have another tip for you.
Me: Yeh?
Dad: Helios.
Me: Erm, what?

Turns out Helios was a movie with quite a lot of big name actors, and they had been advertising quite heavily and now my dad wanted to watch it.

So we met up for lunch at Dian Xiao Er where we had duck and this yummy vegetable dish (think they used lime in it) and proceeded to watch the movie.

Helios was pretty entertaining, even though there were bits that got confusing for me here and there. It waa a 2 hour long movie about stolen weapons of mass destruction, and different parties trying to get their hands on it. Lots of fighting and explosions and a mix of actors from Hong Kong, China and South Korea.

Grabbed a coffee after, discussed the movie, walked by the waterfront and headed home. It was a relaxing and enjoyable day with the two important men in my life.

Was hungry on the way home (almost dinner time) so we went to Sheng Siong and bought ingredients to make mie bakso. We didn't follow a recipe and +3 estimated based on his recollections, and our meal turned out to be such a success! Slurp. Now we just need to be able to replicate this dish hehehe.

Lazed around at home after dinner (+3 still had to finish some work) and decided to go out for a night time walk at about 9.30pm.

We didn't have an agenda, and ended up feeding the cats, walking by the park behind our block, heading to One Fullerton and back. Passed lots of smaller streets during our walk and saw lots of stuff (temples, restaurants, pubs) that we normally don't walk by.

Got home past midnight, exhausted and dripping with perspiration. It was a good walk and an excellent way to end an awesome day.

And this is just the start of the weekend! Today, to celebrate Mother's Day, we are going to cook dinner for the parents. How exciting!
