Meredith confirmed going to Pei Chun Primary School next year. 

Today, we went to Kiddy Palace and I saw the my medoly purse and matching pencil case.  Asked if Meredith would like to have it for her use in P1 and she agreed.   Thought I am already very kiasu, who knows my daughter is even more kiasu… like mother like daughter.  She wanted to get her P1 school bag.

I was just asking her to try on carrying the bag to see if it is too big for her.  The moment she tried on, she fell in love with it and wanted me to get it for her.  I actually wanted to get her a trolley bag but she said it will be very heavy if she needs to carry it when it rains.  Wonder who told her about it or maybe she has experience with her current strawberry shortcake bag with trolley.

While talking about the school bag, she told me that she was a little afraid about P1… Hmm, must find ways to get her ready and have confident in going to P1. 

Told her that we will get it in November or December but she told me what if it is sold out?  Ok, ok, she wins, the bag now sits in the cupboard waiting for 3 Jan 2012.

Thanks Dora for the receipe.

Ingredients:
(makes about 24 pieces)

100g butter, softened at room temperature
80g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
180g cake flour
20g
corn flour

Method:
1) Sift cake flour and corn flour together and set aside.
2) Line baking tray with parchment paper, set aside.
3) With an electric mixer, add in sugar to the butter in 2 ~3 additions and cream till the mixture turns pale and fluffy.
4) Add in egg yolk and mix well.
5) Add sifted flour mixture in 2 ~ 3 additions, stir with a spatula to form a soft dough.
6) Place dough in a plastic bag and flatten with rolling pin.
7) Refrigerate the dough for about half an hour.
8) Remove dough from fridge. Roll out dough on slightly floured work surface and cut out with slightly floured cookie cutters. If the dough appears to be a little to hard and breaks into pieces while rolling, leave it at room temperature for a few minutes. The dough will soften up and can be rolled easily.
9) Bake at pre-heated oven at 175 degC for 10 ~ 15mins.

Let cool and store in air-tight container.

Bought Keegan along as his lower molar has stained. Ops, his left molar needs a filling… Luckily, he was cooperative enough to drill the hole. However, he refused to open his mouth before putting the filling but we managed to settle him. Followed by polishing done. Well done Keegan…

Meredith had her baby incisor removed today by Dr Jason.  She was very brave, did not cry. She has requested to bring her Mellchan Baby along in case she is scared.

Dr Jason told her he will put some cream and followed by some juice.  Afterwhich, will just be like plucking flower, the tooth will be out.

Swimming

It has been a long time since I bring Keegan for swimming when Meredith has class on Sunday.  Today, the venue has changed to Geylang East Swimming Complex as Toa Payoh’s is closed for Youth Olympic.  There is a water play there and weather was good, so we go and play water…
