Food For Tots

I will be going back to Singapore tomorrow after 2 weeks holidaying in my hometown Penang. It has been a fantastic break for me. No cooking or houseworks. Best of all is to have many “part-time” caretakers (aka my family members) taking turns to entertain my little boy. What a great relief! LOL!

Nevertheless, we can’t wait to go back home and join the Christmas fun. The is the first Christmas we will be spending in Singapore since moving over from Kuala Lumpur three years ago.

Here, I would like to wish all my blogger friends and readers “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”!

Two weeks ago, I received an email from Mr Tan (the owner of Ivy Kitchen). He requested for permission to use the petunia photo in my food review post as his new restaurant signage. I was so thrilled and agreed. I went over to the restaurant two days ago to take a look at it and took this photo.
