The other day my mum went to see Doctor, the Doctor ask her not to eat seafood, meat, and to go vegetarian as she has high cholesterol.  Ask what about fish, was told, 1 week once, ok.  So I thought I will lookout for vegetarian products in the supermarket.

My mum loves foods like fried kway teow, fried oyster, mee goreng, etc.  Have to control her intake of it.

1st week of 2018

1st Jan (Mon)

It has been a while since I meetup with my old friend, old as in we know each other for many year, and her son.

She and her son wants to visit my mum.  As they are taking MRT, my place is not near to the MRT station and have to take a bus from the interchange to reach my place.  Was telling her, why not we meet at the MRT station food court there. I will have an excuse to bring my mum out as nowadays, my mum doesn't really like to go out, and staying at home, staring at the four walls, is not good for her.

Earlier on, she has WhatsApp me she will be bringing dumpling for my mum.

On the day itself, she WhatsApp the above photo of the dumpling she has made.  She's good at making dumpling.

As she's a health conscious person, she cooks at home and eat before she and her son came out.  We met for drink and chit chat before she went back prepare dinner.

2nd Jan (Tue)

There used to be a Social Worker who visits my mum every week.  Now the Social Worker visits my mum once a month.  Recently, they introduce the Elder-sitting where his colleague will come in on every Tuesday for one hour to engage my mum with some activities like games, story telling, etc.

3rd Jan (Wed)

Starting this year, on every first Wednesday of the month, the Church starts a singing class.  At first, I was thinking, should I go for the singing class or go for workout.  Second thought, there's workout everyday in whole of Singapore whereby singing class, it's only once a month.  If I go  singing class, I can learn some technique in singing and gets to meet new people. So go for the singing class. 

The singing class, 1 1/2 hour.  The teacher spend 1/2 hour explaining A E I O U in which she mention, if we were to learn singing outside, the teacher out there won't tell us much as it's their rice bowl, unless we pay more.  Nobody initial a group picture, so no picture.  After the class, there's light refreshment before everyone makes their way back.

While having refreshment, the Pastor told me they will be visiting my mum the next day.  When back at home, told my mum about it, her reply was scary. (cos she heard the word Pastor)

4th Jan (Thur)

Friend WhatsApp me in the morning that another friend mum's passed away.  The first thing I ask was when is the funeral, so as to make arrangement to go for the wake.  Told friend that Pastor coming to my place to visit my mum, so I can't go down that day.

Two Pastors from the Hokkien Service of the Church and three sisters came visiting my mum and prayed for her.

5th Jan ( Fri)

Went to the wake of the friend whose mum passed away.

While in Church one of the Saturday, a Sister in Christ blessed my mum with a few slice of Ah Ma cake.  After finishing the few slice, my mum was asking me, anymore.  No Ah Ma cake in Bukit Merah Central, but Cheesecake.  So on the way home after going for the wake, drop by the cheesecake shop.  Managed to get a last original cheesecake @ $8.  

Address of the cheesecake.

6th Jan (Sat)

I did not go for the funeral if my friend mum's as bringing my mum to Church.

Most of the stalls are not open yet, so not much variety to choose from.  In the end, I settle for bak ku teh @ $4.50, with a rice @ $0.50, so total is $5.

My mum wants fried kway teow, the fried kway teow is quite popular, with Q's, Q about 15 minutes for it.  $3.

Random Post

I need to get my grocery from the supermarket, so I thought I will drop by my friend stall in Bukit Timah Food Centre to chit chat with her before going to the supermarket at Bukit Timah Plaza which is opposite to get my grocery.

Before going Bukit Timah Food Centre, drop by Sunset Way to satisfy my craving of the Chicken Pie I had in mind.

Saw they also sell Shepherd Pie, decided to have that as it's smaller in size and just in case I could not finish the Chicken Pie which is bigger.  Shepherd Pie cost $4.20.

Inside the Shepherd Pie, there is chicken, button mushroom, pea, diced carrot.

Stomach still have room, so 2nd round, char Siew sou @ $1.20.

Har gow @ $2.50

While at the Food Centre, saw a new stall selling Chendol, original chendol is $1.50, chendol with red bean is $2, chendol with sweet corn is $2, chendol with durian is $3.

I was sitting near my friend stall eating my chendol, when I saw the sliced fish soup stall assistant looking at me eating the chendol, so after my friend done with the customers, we were talking and I mention to her about the sliced fish soup stall assistant, friend was mentioning she was jealous I bought chendol for friend and not her, so I told friend, no reason for me to buy for her lor.

After buying my grocery, went to have coffee before going back since I have not had coffee for the day yet.  Coffee @ $1.50.

When I saw the picture of the otah toast, I was tempted, so bought @ $2.20 to eat.

New Year Eve (31st Dec)

It has been a rainy day on the last day of 2017, raining almost whole day.

* Photo credit to RC volunteer.  Started the day by going for Zumba workout.  Last workout for Year 2017.  One of my resolution for 2018 will be not to be lazy, exercise more.

Then bought a packet of vegetarian kway teow mee back to share with my mum.  Cook a simple lunch, shower.

As the other time, at my relative place, my relative gave me a packet of drink to drink in which relative mention, the drink was free when relative bought things from the supermarket and she can't find the drink in the supermarket.  It so happen I manage to come across the drink in the supermarket, so thought I will get some for my relative.

Was back at Beo Crescent. 

Saw a stall at the Food Centre selling chee cheong fun, $0.80 per piece, so order 2 pieces @ $1.60.  Went to order coffee.  It so happen the auntie selling coffee was talking to a cleaner.  What they are talking is more to gossiping.  So I interrupt by placing my order.  She answer me, I am talking, wait.  Seeing that she is more senior than me, I do not want to argue.  Not that you are serving customers.  Anyway, my first and last time order from her.  If I were to be there again, will order from other stall.

The other time, I bought fried hokkien mee from one of the coffeeshop for my mum dinner, this round, bought fried hokkien mee again back for her to eat.  Instead of ordering two $3, I ordered $5 to share.  Container $0.20, so total is $5.20.

Lunch @ Jurong West st. 42 (28th Dec)

Recently, my mum on and off has been scratching her leg due to itchiness.  Ask her if she wants to see doctor, her answer is definitely a NO.  So I have to lie to her that my rashes is back, I need to see the doctor again and ask her to go with me, then after seeing doctor, go makan.

Went to Polyclinic see doctor.  When the number is being called, told her, let's go in, lucky she didn't resist.

Told the doctor about my mum problem.  As the other time, when my mum was discharge from the hospital, she was given 2 months of medication.  When she went to see the Memory Doctor, I ask the Doctor, if her medicine finish, how.  Was given a letter and was told to bring her to the Polyclinic to see Doctor.  She still has 1 month medication at home.  Since we were there, I pass the Doctor the letter and ask her if I were to bring my mum back 1 month later when the medicine finish.  My mum was prescribed 1 month medicine, same as what the Hospital prescribed.  Additional is a moisture cream and a cream for fungal.  And my mum needs to go back again in February for a blood test and 1 week after the blood test, to see doctor.

After everything done, we went Jurong West 400+ there to have our lunch.

As usual, my mum wants the fish soup from her favourite stall. $4 for a bowl, but I add $1 for additional fish. So total is $5.

Rice @ $0.50

Chilli sauce

My starter, order a $3 rojak to share with my mum.

Told my mum, after that, we go to the other coffeeshop, as usually if in the vicinity, I will go to that coffeeshop to have my favourite white coffee, although it's more expensive than the usual coffee @ $1.70, i prefer this white coffee.

My mum second round, fried carrot cake @ $3

Saw a new stall selling duck, char Siew, roasted meat, etc.  Try out the duck rice @ $3, which I would said nothing to shout about. 

Additional 2 dumplings @ $1, also I would said, nothing to shout about.

While on the way back, bump into Aunty Lee in the bus.  She went NUH for her follow-up.  She ask me where I go, told her I bring my mum see doctor at Polyclinic.  She then ask me got to pay money.  Of course lah, my mum got to pay for her medical fee.  She then told me, she went to apply for financial assistance from the hospital, so she need not pay for her medical fee.

She then went on to tell me, if she walks too much, she will be short of breath.  Like the other time, she went to the Community Centre to collect the Food Pack.  Told her, she can pass the card to her granddaughter and ask her granddaughter to collect on her behalf.  She then went on to said will ask her son to collect at night.  As her granddaughter is waiting for 'O' level, ask her, in the meantime, is her granddaughter working part-time, was told nope and her granddaughter is at home. So I ask her, since her granddaughter is at home, why don't she ask her granddaughter to go with her to the hospital for follow-up as I ever heard she mention before she not sure of the direction at the hospital.  Was told a day before the appointment, she ask her granddaughter, but her granddaughter doesn't want to go with her.

Mentioning about the medical fee, sometimes back, I bump into a neighbourhood neighbour, she was telling me, she's a Malaysian, a Permanent Resident in Singapore.  She's over 60, in Malaysia, over 60, if see Doctor at Government Hospital, it's free.  So for her, she will usually go Malaysia see Doctor.   Haiz, Singapore, over 60, not free if to see Doctor at Polyclinic or Government Hospital. Have to pay.
