90s vibes and celebrating Mother’s Day

I just discovered The Cranberries’ 2017 album on Spotify!

Her voice is so soothing and familiar (and haunting in a good way). Just the perfect sound to accompany my long bus ride to the other side of Singapore.

I’m meeting my family for Mother’s Day dinner tonight, it happens less than once a month so it’s precious. ❤

And I’m wearing a preloved dress from a dear friend. The floral skater dress is completely off trend now but I’m enjoying the throwback vibe today, now complete with a tune that lingers.


It was really dark by the time I got to the venue, close to half-an-hour late.

We had two starters, four main courses, and two desserts in all.
6/7 of my beautiful family, missing our eldest who has child-care duties.

In my family, conversations are mostly rapid and random, and often at least one person gets excessively agitated. Tonight, we talked about how Long John Silver’s (the fast-food chain) in Singapore used to be awesome with fish fillet bigger than an average plate. It led to the discovery that one of my sisters couldn’t afford LJS because Mom gave her too little pocket money.

She shared that she felt inferior back then when she compared herself with friends who have much more pocket money. But she is now the wealthiest and highest achieving one among us, so I guess Mom must be proud of her parenting.

In conclusion…

  • Al fresco dining for 6: $300 SGD
  • Quality time with family: Priceless

So, how are you gonna celebrate Mother’s Day this year?
