Was wondering what to post before I do a 2 week social media fast (I’m so addicted & will probably still check in to check out your posts). Decided on the best teh halia & chicken dum briyani at Tekka #yakaderbriyani #tekkabriyani #tekkafoodcentre #chickendumbriyani #tehalia also included a picture of the ‘new’ Singapore Icon which beautifully reflects the sky. (Marina Bay Sands Hotel). #socialmediafast #socialmediabreak

Once again so relieved about my tumour market results. Will try not be to complacent and continue to be vigilant with the checks. (This time last year I was undergoing intestinal surgery due to a recurrence. It was the point at which I got complacent and was actually shocked at the recurrence.) #CA125 #cancermarkers #tumourmarkers #monthlybloodtest #happy hope posting this gives others hope that even stage 4 cancer can have its up moments & perhaps it can all turn around. Most important thing is to be happy, stress free as far as possible, & to stay vigilant. #miraclesarepossible #stage4cancer #stage4cancerthriver #endometrialcancer #wombcancer #recurrence #locallyadvancedendometrialcancer

Clinic visit day lunch 🥗 The salad was so good but the black out chocolate cake which my sister loves was way too rich for us. Service was terrific. There was a Latin celebration at paragon with live 🎶 music. #pscafeparagon #pscafeparagonsg #blackoutchocolatecake #turkeycranberrysandwich #taupok #asianfusion #pscafe

Delicious shared meal and wonderful company. Especially loved the beer battered fish and chips and the macaroni and cheese. The ice cream was of a high quality too. Good quality food & great service. Third visit to The Chophouse. The previous times were to the VivoCity branch. #katongi12 #thechophouse #singaporerestaurants #casualdiningsg #beerbatteredfishandchips #porkchops #chickenquesadillas #cesarsalad #darkchocolateicecreamwithalmonds

So lovely to have Nasi Padang at night when it’s not so crowded. The atmosphere was wonderful and service great too. The nights in Singapore are nice being so much cooler. Happy with this very tasty meal. There’s something about the various curries and gravies mixed with the steamed rice. The teh alia (ginger milk tea) I had would have been perfect if it was not served cooled down. The only quibble I had. They sell the best Dodol (durian cake) here too for S$5. My sweet tooth was kept happy. #nasipadang #kampongglam #arabstreet #kandaharstreet @minang.sg #chickencurry #sayurlodeh #rumahmakanminang #singaporefood #singaporefoodie #singaporehalalfood #singaporemalayfood #halalfoodsg

A school & food themed one. It’ll make you hungry for cupcakes and peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Had to explain to them that what they know as jam is called jelly in America. #peanutbuttersfirstdayofschool  #penguinyoungreaders #childrensillustratedbooks #kidsillustratedbooks #booksforkids #booksforchildren #learningtoread #childrensliterature #picturebookreview #kidlit #bookstagram #childensbookrecommendations 📚 62 library books read 📚 I actually need to change this count as back in Sep 2017 we have actually already read 182 library books & stopped after I struggled to go to the library post surgery. So the actual count is 244 which makes me so happy. I just love the idea of expanding vocabularies while enjoying the most relaxing activity of reading. I seriously get so much joy out of seeing their reactions to stories & their questions teach me so much. Also the children truly deserve a medal for being so patient & attentive. Angels.

I liked the theme of not judging a book by its cover...or a rat in this case. True friendships are not based on superficial things like someone’s status in society.  #cyrilandpat #emilygravett #childrensillustratedbooks #kidsillustratedbooks #booksforkids #booksforchildren #learningtoread #childrensliterature #picturebookreview #kidlit #bookstagram #childensbookrecommendations 📚 60 library books read 📚

This was their absolute favourite today (mine as well) and not a surprise being a combination of two favourite things - kittens & ice cream cones. I was the vanilla one, LO1 the strawberry 🍓& LO2 the chocolate 🍫 of course.

Always feel so good after a walk. I can’t imagine that around this period last year 27th September to 4th October I was holed up in hospital eager to go home. My 3rd major cancer related surgery since January 2016. Eager to see loved ones especially the littlest sunshines . Had intestinal surgery which was a recurrence from womb cancer. I was previously diagnosed as stage 1c ovarian and stage 1b endometrial cancer, but since the recurrence the pathologist re-evaluated it as stage 4 or locally advanced endometrial cancer. Seems pretty unreal to me how fast I healed and at this moment I feel so much better physically & hope the healing continues. The body’s ability to heal is so miraculous it blows my mind. #grateful #stage4cancerthriver #recurrence #intestinaltumour #modernmedicineisamazing #singaporesky #singaporeweather #singaporeclouds The important thing is continuous and regular screening and to not get complacent when you feel well cos when I had the tumour I had only minor aches and had no clue it was there till a pet scan was done after my CA125 tumour marker test numbers spiked. We have to be constantly vigilant. And I have to control stress/ anxiety & try to always be happy.

They enjoyed this one even though it was a tad wordy for the tiny ones. I found the student teacher story captivating and loved the work of the writer and illustrator. #richardcurtis #rebeccacobb #itssnowday #childrensillustratedbooks #kidsillustratedbooks #booksforkids #booksforchildren #learningtoread #childrensliterature #picturebookreview #kidlit #bookstagram #childensbookrecommendations 📚 57 library books read 📚
