Flowers for mom

These are belated photos taken during my recent birthday in January 2009.

My sons bought a bouquet of flowers for me..... first time. :) They used to buy a stalk of flower only cause they are still students back then.

I love the big Gerbera flower.

And I was laughing so hard when the three men in the house taking a longer time lighting the candles because this year the candles are

Next year they can just put 5 big candles...hehehe

Re: Senior citizens, not that you are a senior citizen, LOL, I mean your comment on my blog. Do you remember Tang Dynasty? That it was here today, and gone tomorrow at Jurong Road?

Being proud to be a Chinese, I took my dad and family, paying a lot of money to enter. That day was special, they treated senior citizens to a meal. As I bought the tickets, the girl at the counter waves at my dad," Ah Pek" Then she gave the Ah Pek a voucher for a free lunch.
My dad said, it was the first time ever, in Singapore to be treated a free meal.

Sayang they had to close the place down. Any idea what is there now?

Happy Mother's day Alice, my son gave me a little plastic flower he bought with his pocket money. He said he didn't eat for break because he bought that flower, I said I didn't eat a week for paying for his tuition..just kidding :P But no, I did tell him that..arent mothers the greatest, well..superwoman actually.

Ann, I heard it will be converted to be a temple where visitors are allowed to stay overnight for medication or eat vegetarian food and of course dont think it come

There's the buddhist lodge over here that provided free food for the poor or just about anyone. Even the rich go there for the vegetarian food but of course they do donate food or money to the temple.

Lara, the flowers were chosen by my son's girlfriend. :)

M kate, so sweet of your son.

Thank you all for the nice comments in my blog. :)
