svps had an open house today. fatin insisted that we'd go coz she wanted so much for us to see her classroom. we only went at 3pm, took pictures and had lots of fun...

there were lotz of programmes set out for the event, and i must say they were pretty good.

they had good spread of goodies for the visitors too. but we only settled for the ice-cream, pop-corn and candy floss!!! fatin didn't quite enjoy the candy floss though. she said she was deceived coz the big candy shrunk until so tiny once it went into her mouth that there was nothing left to savour.

we had a good tour around the school, and this is my favourite corner. the painted eggs impressed me so much that i wish i could bring them home for my own display.

oh yes...they also had concerts and performances lined up since morning and we were very lucky to catch the last shows. mr nazar was the mc and he was quite an entertainer.

after the show, fatin took us to her classroom. it was long climb to the fourth floor that my hub and i were panting like crazy. we couldn't imagine how does fatin manage to climb those flights of stairs with such a heavy school bag five days a week. i guess kids are fully energized no matter how small they are. i shouldn't under-estimate her.

in her classroom, we saw her funny poem about 'phua chu kang' pasted on the board.

and this is fatin's locker. she's sharing it with her two other classmates.

there were so many more interesting spots and activities going on. but i didn't have the chance to snap more pictures as i was always distracted by all the artsy displays on the walls, beautiful pond in the garden, students and visitors taking part in wall-climbing, etc. we are glad that fatin pushed us to go. it was worth it.

i am quite aware about doctor's warning what the heaty durian can do to my (high) blood pressure. but he never said anything about ice durian, it's not my fault!!

family walk this 28 june!!!

Monday, June 16, 2008

yesterday, a healthy lifestyle walk was organized by CCs all over singapore. we, with my parents together with cik sudir and cik asiah, joined the bishan CC and had a wonderful morning walk at changi point boardwalk. the view is so pretty and refreshing. the walk was along the seaside near changi sailing club chalet. we saw all the many spots great for private picnics and beautiful sceneries for photo-takings. the walk ended with pure satisfaction and greed to return with our breakfast spread and camera!!!

sweet collage
we had catered a western banquet for cute hungry students at a church camp recently, from 4 to 7 june. we had to wake up between 3 to 3:30am every morning to prepare early for breakfast. we finished between 6 to 7pm in the evening after dinner was totally sold out.

80% of our customers ranged from as young as 4 years old. my hub and i sincerely enjoyed serving them. they are all smart kids and very well behaved. i lurv the way they talk. they are such beautiful little angels. looking at them and listening to them made us forget how tired we were.

the quiet school canteen in early morning, waiting for the adorable ones to arrive

efi helped to peel cartons of potatoes for potato salad

baked macaroni, among the many other set meals in the menu we served

we felt so guilty each time we had to announce to the long Q of our angelic customers that we were out.

the problem started when each stall holder was told to cook for a limited number of customers. this step was initiated in order to be fair to all vendors. being so inexperienced, we dutifully followed the instruction not knowing how many hearts we were about to break when we displayed the SOLD OUT sign on our counter. thus, we ordered just enough for our stock to last us for four days. we managed to increase our order of supplies on the second day, wishing so much not to disappoint anyone. but there were still kids who came up to us asking, "aren't you going to cook anymore?". we really wished we could.

this is a lesson for us. next time, we shall take our own initiative and dump the instruction into the bin.

to all who came to us with their praises and blessings...thank you so much dearies. to all our faithful customers, we glad you like the food. and to all who had made many failing attempts in the Qs, we are so so sorry.
