Life can be boring and monotonous if we do not instill any creativity or change into it, that is why I thought of picking up art and painting. I coloured the painting I drew the other day using crayon colours, I love the texture and feel of crayons. Indeed art can be therapeutic. I also borrowed two books about painting for learning.

I had Peng Kueh (or Png Kueh) for my supper tonight. I used to like to fry my Peng Kueh and eat it with chili, slurps. Peng Kueh is a pretty dumpling-like snack that comes in pink, peng kueh is a combination of glutinous rice, mushrooms, peanuts and dried shrimp. I like my peng kueh skin sticky and tender, with the filling being full of flavour. It also comes in white. Have you eaten Peng Kueh before and do you like it? Do share with me, I would love to hear from you.

For some of you who have been following my blog, you may be aware that other than teaching, I also have a part time telemarketing job. Today I got one lead for my agents in my telemarketing job. I also sang two songs at home using my Home KTV system. I love singing, singing really can help to destress. My Home KTV system is still the old type where we insert VCDs or DVDs to play the songs. There is now a new system where you pay a subscription fee and you get a huge Karaoke Library with many songs. It is known as Popsicle. To know more about Popsicle, go here .

My Malaysian youngster friend in his late twenties came to Singapore last week, I met up with him last Sunday to bring him "around" Singapore, as he drives so he came to fetch me at my place at around 6.30pm.

Kukup, a very unique and a century old fishing village built entirely on stilts on the sea surrounded by water, is the southmost village found at the southwest tip of the Peninsular of West Malaysia, and suppose to be the southmost village found in the Continental of Asia. Located about 70 kilometres away from Johor Bahru, and 20 kilometres from Pontian, Kukup has only one road to access by land. It may be reached by sea boarding ferry.

My sister's family came to our house today and my mom whipped up a few dishes so that they can have dinner at our house. These are dishes she cooked, sambal tapioca leaves (she said her sambal tapioca leaves are better than those sold in restaurants LOL), steam fish, runny egg and chicken soup with mushroom (which I did not take a pic). Not sure what type of fish my mom cooked, but there is a mole on the tail of the fish, anybody knows what type of fish is that? Mom's cooking and home cooked meals are the best!
