Dad said he felt like having fusion food for dinner tonight and I knew just the place… Mom’s usually very picky with food but she had absolutely no complaints at all over the 6 course meal so it was all good *wry grin* Besides decent food and great company, it helped that the service staff were very friendly too and tried very hard to make their customers happy. I brought my new digicam along just for fun!
Meet the parents… MM (Magician’s Mother) Lee & MD (Magician’s Daddy) Chua!
My pretty 2nd sis gleefully shows off her giant flounder… "What the fish!?"
The youngest one acting cute… "Activate puppy dog eyes!!!"
The 2 of us horsing around with my 2nd sis playing shutterbug…
That’s got to be my favorite photo of Daddy-O… the man’s happy with his pumpkin soup!
I always enjoy Tao’s fragrant teas (chilled rose apple… yum!) and just as I polished off my creme brulee and was going to call for the bill, the restaurant manager surprised us with a delightful treat – chocolate fondue on the house! He recognised me and thanked me for bringing my family over to patronise them… how very sweet! We were all really stuffed after that but it was all good. We got a discount too… their prices are really reasonable!
It was shopping later where we picked up a whole bunch of things for the home from Marks & Spencers, The Body Shop and Carrefour before heading back. Family time is extremely important and I’m always grappling for that balance of ‘me time’, besides having to juggling the different aspects of work, meeting up with friends, etc. I LOVE MY FAMILY!!! *sigh*
Oh yes… I’ve got a featured interview in this month’s issue of The Quantum Ring, which is the official publication of IBM (International Brotherhood of Magicians) Ring 115. I was personally interviewed by Mr John Teo, who is the long-running president of Singapore’s oldest magic club. The award-winning veteran openly acknowledged me as Singapore’s only professional female magician, by his definition of a full-time commercial magician. In other words, one who does it for their bread and butter where no show = no pay. FYI, the interview took place prior to my mega escape earlier this month, and is a tad lengthy but you can check out the online version (with permission) by clicking here!
PS: Thanks so much for all the wonderful emails & kind comments coming in with regards to my spanking new video on YouTube for The Impalement Cage which was only put up yesterday, less than 24 hours ago. Your awesome support is truly much appreciated!!!
