Monday Blues Part 9

Monday is the start of another week and the first day of the week.

For me, i suppose it is slightly more to that.

After waiting for 2 years and 4 months, i finally got myself on the promotion list. Rounds of haggling with the managers and the partner, it almost seemed like i was bargaining for vegetables and meat in the market when i had to fight for my promotion. Sickening yet fulfilling i suppose.

Its been a while since the 3 monkeys appeared on this weekly segment that was thrown aside after they happily settled down in Jakarta.

Like a blink of the eye, the 3 monkeys are now back with my uncle finishing his stint and settling back down in KL.

My my, they have grown so fast! It only felt like last year that Ellen was just a little baby and now shes turning 3 next week. Natalie has grown to be a little princess with Scott going into Primary 2 as we speak.

If it is one thing that Scott learnt from eating with our family, it is the development of a good palate for food. This monster here adores sushi and i was told that he goes around the sushi train waiting for salmon roe (ikura), "the round round ones, the one that pops in your mouth!".

How may primary 2 kids knows how to eat sushi?

I know this is not the most flattering picture but this is as far as i got with natural photography. These creatures (aka baby girls) spot the camera real quickly and turn into angels with a smile wide enough to show you every teeth they got.

The baby of the three, about to turn 3! Highlight of the dinner was Ellen trying to pronounce Bak Kut Teh but with her non-chinese accent, she did with BAK CUTE TEH! Definitely got the crowd laughing.

Pictures taken at Oriental Spoon, dinner review about to come out soon!
