Mozzie attack

Last kueh chap of the year. Unless I make it myself in Perth? But let’s not kid myself, who has time to clean pig intestines nowadays? It amazes me that 5 years ago, we visited my sister in England and to satisfy her cravings, I cooked kueh chap, tomato kueh tiaw and baked siew pao. Who has time or energy to do that now? Some days when Saitaoha is acting up or sleeping particularly badly (last night was case in point) I just want to return the kids 😓.

Yeah durian for baby!

Actually baby gets none but she is getting to eat local bananas and papayas which she enjoys very much.

The kids are being eaten alive by the mozzies in Malaysia. They had a brief reprieve when we were in Singapore as our flat level was too high for mozzies. But since we’ve been back, the mozzies have come out in full force and it’s been a feeding frenzy. They only like young blood it seems, poor Tristan, Saitaoha and Saitaomei are covered with red, angry bites 😭.

We’ve been spraying mosquito repellent to no avail, those are some tough, pesky mozzies. And unlike the fat, slow ones in Perth, the mozzies here are quick and very good at hiding!

Ah pa tells me that he’s been waking up at night and shining a torchlight on Saitaomei and her surroundings to hunt for these monsters. ‘Boh kua tiok leh, ta pi yi ku si hor mang ka’ (couldn’t see them but she’s still getting bitten by mosquitos!) he laments. The thought of my ah pa getting up at night just to chase away mosquitoes from biting his precious grandchild is just 😭😭😭. Seriously my kids are so lucky to have the best grandfather ever.
