I reminded Alex that it’s Chinese New Year (CNY) tomorrow and he’s pretty excited because that means he’ll be getting an ang pau (a red envelope filled with money) from us. I asked him if he remembers what saying we can use to greet someone during CNY. He replied, “Happy New Year?” Lol. I responded […]
So Keith got me a pot of orchid for Valentine’s, to add to my jungle of orchids. :) Apparently, he had purchased it last Saturday and managed to hide the orchid until he gave it to me today. Is it weird that it’s driving me crazy not knowing his hiding place? Hahaha. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Since our presence was not required in between driving, we took the opportunity to explore the area for food. What […]
Our mail carrier delivered a package to our door today. It turned out to be a surprise care package from my wonderful and dearest friend, Bonnie! She had heard, I’m assuming from her husband, who probably heard from Keith how stressed I’ve been these past couple of months (our husbands were housemates back in our […]
