BBBBRRRRRRRR...............!!!

It is THE coldest day for me.

I didn't even want to touch a drop of water. And when I did take my shower, the bathroom was like sauna. Pretty sure the moulds and scums are loving and thanking me for it, especially when they decide to reside in my washing machine.

It's also in the news that it snowed in Ballarat, Woodend, Daylesford and even parts of Mount Dandenong. It snowed at my backyard too! Well, not really snow, more like mini hail. Aidan got all excited when he saw those tiny droplets of ice all over the ground. I shoo-ed him back into the house. Freezing!

Wilkin took a half day sicky today, but we stayed at home and did nothing. Miserable weather. The only time we got out was for dinner, I escaped from cooking today :) and we went to Malaysia Garden in Clayton. I had the 'wat-tan-hor' (noodles in egg gravy with combination of pork, prawns and squid). I tasted LURVELY! Exactly like the one at Ipoh town leh! I can still smell it in my burp. Hahahha!!

Wilkin had his usual curry laksa. He always says his dad orders the same thing i.e. beef stew noodles, but he's the same. At a certain shop he'll order that certain meal, and here at Malaysia Garden, curry laksa. For me, whenever I come here, no fail I try everything out. So far so good. If I want to eat anything spicy, we will order Hainan Chicken Rice for Aidan, coz then Dada can sapu the rest.

Aaahh... what a night. I bought some frozen 'tong yuen' (rice balls with sesame filling) and we had hot tong sui on a cold cold night.

Aaahhh.... c'est la vie~
