About Socks From Shoppee & Food

SGD15.80 for 10 pairs

Ms Gen Z was kind to point out to me that Shoppee, the online store had Garfield socks on sale. I then sought her help to buy me 10 pairs as I hate to shop online. Plus, I was told of horror tales of wromgful delivery.

So instead of Garfield socks, some socks with a smiley face and pig like ears. Aargh!! The same fate of wrongful delivery has also occured to my order.

Ms Gen Z tried contacting the seller based in China for more than a week before they decided to replace my piggy ear socks with my original order of Garfield socks. I finally got my Garfield socks on 31 Dec 2022, New Year’s eve!

Chinese New Year of the Rabbit is on 22 Jan 2023. Today the restaurants started putting Yu Sheng or Prosperity Salad with smoked salmon on the menu. For $38.60 before 10% service and 8% GST, the portion was indeed tiny for 3 of us.

For dessert, I had a delectable piece of carrot cake at SPRMKT at Dempsey and a latte!

Mr Nice ordered Grab food delivery to send me brunch…Dutch Colony Latte with a bagel spread with salmon paste, turkey ham and a side of salad.

My yummy bagel…the little white tub contained a half boiled egg which was unfortunately tossed by me as I don’t like eating runny, gooey egg!😆
Jerk Face made pumpkin pie. This was the pie before it was baked

Jerk Face lives in Seattle, USA and he showed me how snow can fall overnight and melts away the very next day!

Thanks for the food all…I was a part of Jerk Face’s Thanksgiving dinner, albeit virtually!


Mr Nice In Rome, Back In Lil Red Dot On 15 Nov 22

All photos are courtesy of Mr Nice.

Sorrento, Lecee & Rome have an abundance of art – brass or metal sculpture, street art, building facades with exciting yet vibrant colors. Amazing seeing all these through his lens.

I hope to visit Sorrento, Lecee and Rome one day. Perhaps I can see it through my own eyes 😃


Mr Nice Is In Sorrento & Lecee – Italy

These photos are from Mr Nice. He is spending 18 days in Italy, wining, dining and catching the sights!

The sights he took in and sent me the photos ‘live’ daily are gorgeous sights!

Using his Samsung Ultra Note 20, same cell phone as mine, he took these photos. I use the same model of cellphone but gosh, I can never take such great pics!!

I loved this image!!!
Always thought of a red bicycle and voila!!
