Yesterday evening I baked a Butter Cake because I found 3 blocks of Golden Churn butter in the fridge. These will expire in November and Golden Churn being so expensive, I do not want to waste it.
My cake turned out quite nicely in spite of me being out of practice for many months heh...heh...
This morning I went to Aeon. My partner and I arrived 15 minutes before opening time and the queue was sooooo looong...
Possibly due to the relaxation of the rule that two people from the same household can now come out together. Plus some some people are starting work tomorrow and cannot go shopping on other days.
It took 30 minutes before we could enter the supermarket.
Apparently there is a priority lane for the disabled, senior citizens and pregnant women. I am 3 years shy from qualifying as senior citizen but my partner qualifies. Next week we could queue at this lane.
Yesterday, besides baking a cake, I also had to deal with my cat. She was giving me attitude.
Look at her sour face. She refused to eat her Whiskas tuna and insisted on kibble. Why?
Well, her boyfriend came over and I gave him some kibble (must make friends with your daughter's boyfriend). He ate with gusto.
Next thing I knew my Girl made a lot of noise, and kept looking up at the cabinet where I keep her food. I immediately knew that she wanted kibble.
Nope. I wasn't going to give in to her tantrums. Girl! You eat what Mommy puts in front of you! Sounds familiar? Some mother's do that, right? Then the more geng ones will go into the "there are starving children in Africa" narrative. So did I. You know or not, some cats in this neighborhood have to beg for food?
Still stare at me and make a lot of noise. So I walked away.
She followed me.
I proceeded to eat my dinner and there she was whining away. I tak layan.
She will eat her tuna when she gets real hungry.
So she went into a corner to sulk.
Nothing doing. Mommy will not give in.
Later she went out (without touching her tuna) and at 11:00pm, I went to call her in. I found her pursuing a cockroach. Eeww!! She must have heard about Cookie's killer instincts and wanted to show off hers.
Mommy was having none of that and carried her in. That evening there was a whole lot of digging and scratching outside my bedroom.
I woke up to find one parquet missing and up till now I can't find the missing piece. Haiz! (Yes, last night she finished her tuna).
This is my lunch today. Steamed chicken fillet with tofu and brinjals. No time to take nice photo.
This is my food prep. I decided that I will not go to office everyday, just two or three days a week or as and when necessary until the MCO is lifted.
OK I gotta go. Have to sleep early tonight!
