Dinner with 2 other Singaporeans. Anthony who's doing Bioinformatics PhD at UofU and Sarah, the pharmacist who I went shopping with the other day.
It would be our last time meeting with Sarah, and it's been a while since we last saw Anthony, so it was a great time to catch up.
Steak at Applebees is the perfect way to do that. All of us love the steak there. Kids enjoyed themselves too. And we ended it with super delicious dessert. Dh treated, cos Sarah is the guest today.
Above left: when Sarah asked ds1 to pose for a picture, I don't know why he put his hand on the face! Did he see his female friends do that and so copied that??!? So funny. He held up his drawing which he was working on while waiting for the food. Both kids were doodling away cos the adults were engaged in "boring adult conversation".
Yes, we also remarked that the lamps overhead resembled Swensen's. haha.
Anyway, after the dinner, we felt like we were longtime friends, and so with the thought that we might not see each other for a long time to come, we hugged our goodbyes. So sentimental? drama?
Just like when we met our friends at Chicago. Some of them, I just got to know only. Didn't even know them in Singapore. But when you're overseas, and you meet people from your hometown that's far far away, you feel so close to each other. We also hugged each other like old friends when we left.
we received more parcels and presents.
This one all the way from Helsinki, Finland. From chow cw. postcard and Meizhenxiang's BBQ pork dried chips. He said it is a new product. really nice, the kids loved it too.
Below: from Angeling and Linda. heartwarming letters and cards, Spore magazines, newspapers, Chinese VCD for the kids, finger puppets and other personal items, hehe.
rainbows every day, do not worry for the morrow
