Last post... I promise

We signed up for inline skating classes for princess. It's a 1 to 1 lesson and the instructor was very good - patient and nice. We were advised that the pair of skates which we purchased earlier were no good at all. There were no ball bearings in them thus she wasn't able to glide. It was a problem I noticed the past few times she tried to skate, and I thought the problem was her, but apparently it wasn't her fault. So we had to get new proper skates for her. It was a little tricky at the start as the wheels were very much smoother than the other pair. But she managed to get used to them pretty quickly. And the other instructor was impressed that she could move around quite well learning on her own in the past few days. According to him, most first-timers can't even stand up.

After a gruelling workout, it was time for a hearty lunch. We visited Westlake and were not disappointed as everything that we ordered turned out great. We had xiao bai chye (my favourite veg), sweet and sour pork, yang chow fried rice, and a cream corn and chicken soup. All 'ang moh' food. Haha. Everything was done to perfection, and I loved that the pork was crunchy and not too meaty.

Princess is really a fast learner, in no time she will be skating like a pro. The food sure looks delicious and we love yang chow fried rice too!

camemberu - Thanks. A happy new year to you too.

peony - Yes, no regrets. Food was lovely. Oh yes, she did enjoy but only in the first half hour. Haha. After that she tried to take many 'rests'. Was too tedious an hour and the skates needed lots of control so her thighs must have been tired. A wonderful new year to you and your family.

little corner of mine - Oh haha, I guess so. Then we can't catch her. I love the fried rice too. :)

hkchoo - Hehe, thanks. 'Ang Moh' food ah... hahaha... cos ang mohs all love sweet sour pork, fried rice types. Can't go wrong with those.
