School is OUT!

Choo-choo-train from Hell...
Just kidding!
Kindie's creation for Christmas party!
School is out, Christmas is coming, my oldest boy made it to the Honor roll, my husband is coming home from HK tonight, I'm blessed in so many way... 
"BKE" is the name of highway that I use to get to my boys school, As I was driving today, I felt like I was driving a highway in Long Island, NY! Bright green trees and jungles. 

Anyway, as I type this blog, The loudest thunders and bucket pouring rain started...
Yes, we live in a jungle!

CRAZY traffic...

This is just a regular freeway going 80miles/h...
If you're not being careful, you will definitely hit one or more of these motorcycles.


My Webelo!
Unfortunately, the church does not sponsor cub/boy scout here.
What a bummer! 
We felt really strange at first when our non-church den started to talk to the boys about "When it is appropriate to drink alcohol and when it isn't..."
Apparently, it is appropriate to drink after a funeral but not OK at school parties....
Anyway, we are hanging on!

My Morning Shop

 Today, I started by going to Wet market. It's about 10 min. drive from our condo. 

Boys school bus comes at 6:50 so I was already at the market by 7.
It's time for Porridge!!
What a great way to start a day!!

Make sure your Hawker of your choice is ranked "A" to avoid stomach problems...

 and after my breakfast, I started my shopping for groceries. 
YES, There are regular super markets here too but nothing beats the freshness of wet markets!

Me, a happy shopper♡

Eat Under The Equator- Thanksgiving

Did I just use a whole 1kg of butter??
Oh well, It was delicious.

Note for next year...

Forgive my laziness this year....

I can probably eat 3~4 servings of this if on one stops me.

It's Hot and Humid but....
