Three Weeks gone ...

Esther came back for just under four weeks and before we realise it, it is time for her to go again! This year, all three girls came back. Like Kong said earlier, they are now like guest to the family. How true it is! The differences were that they helped to cook some meals and cook things that I would hesitate to attempt as I simply don't have the time!

Cheryl Yong, Esther, Lina

Ming Chu, Cheryl Chen, Esther, Yvonne

Esther manages to make some friends during this short period of time! She made sushi... She is quite an expert. At first, I cooked the rice for her and I didn't realise that the rice must not stick to each other. But I thought that they should stick. Without asking her, I added in some glutinous rice + too much water. So, it was soggy and cannot be used. The next day, she bought her own sushi rice!

She also made pizza. I don't think I have the time to put on so much goodies. So boys, you have run out of luck now! Only exception is if the boys can help me to make the dough.
She also cooked spaghetti for the boys. Grated cheese and grilled... (I roasted the chicken but Esther is also good at roasting)
...and Joshua tried to consume this big plate!
They made all kind of cheese cake. This one with yogurt and white chocolate which Stephanie brought back from UK. The white chocolate in Malaysia is nothing more than a block of fat! Just read the label on bar.
This one is brownie cheese cake...
Wild blueberry cheese cake.. she brought the blueberry conserve all the way from UK.
She will be going there for her final (fifth) year medical school. By May next year, she should have graduated! Time really flies. So many years have passed just like that....oh, old man is about to retire now.
Talking about old man, I have gone through two round of "reorganisation" in the company. This month would be the third time. I hope to survive this round...otherwise, I would be a full time photographer.

Wah! You're so lucky! In my case, it's the other way round - whenever my daughter comes back, I will have to cook for her... Sigh!!! But I love doing it though! LOL!!!
