Dr. Seuss Plant A Tree

And Lauge´s 5 minutes of fame: On the morning of Earth Day, 22 May 2011, the 20 children gathered at Clementi Woods Park, rubbing the sleep from their eyes and eager to take part in the high point of their very own environmental campaign. “I am confident that we can plant all the trees!” chirped Luage, aged 5.

Wood Tiger, Fire Snake, Wood Rooster, Earth Rat

May 1974, Apr 1977, Dec 2005, Dec 2008.

I´m reading The Chinese Language by Daniel Kane and thought I´ve to be able to answer: 你, found the first character, I knew the radical, vuhuuj and counted the right number of strokes, vuhuuj. Next character, no clue what radical to look for, so pinyen instead "nǐ shǔ shénme"

No wisdom left

In case it is all in the teeth.
Had last one removed today by a full masked person (nose and mouth covered and then a plastic shield all the way to the hairline). She cleaned my teeth with things I never tasted before and wobbled my tooth out, she did a good job, but would have prefer to see her face before she did my teeth.

Facebook or blog

Even my blog posts usually are very short and would fit well in a Facebook status I find I like my blog way better - even I probably miss out on a bunch of fun comments.

I started the blog as kind of a diary, also for the kids to look at when they grow up. Where have we lived and what was some of the small things in everyday life. It seems easier ones to grab all the posts and print them nicely from a blog than from Facebook.

The mouse was missing

On the run last night, it has been there cheering the last part home. It runs well for 10 meters and then disappear in a hole.

And what surprised me, it is superb comfortable to run in 30 degrees Celcius.


Got email from Lauge´s new (really nice and dedicated) Chinese Teacher. Hooray for Google Translate.

Is also what we pay for a hair cut.
You can pay more, the closer to get to Orchard, but I like our local place. There is three seats to form the line, no washing, just quick cutting - and the boys likes the place as well.

Pineapples (with cockroaches?)

On the bike, filling the handlebar basket (still on the bike) straight from the stall. Ginger, chili, lime, greens, roots, pineapple, mango, ... and you really have to squeeze it to get at a S$10 bill (40dkr).

Sticky Toffee Pudding

Cool fresh air. Spring in Northern Europe. After 18 months out East we are quite excited for a month abroad.
