Mother's Day

With the restrictions coming in place, I thought it would be great to just drop by at Mom's salon and then spend a simple evening with her. Over the past few months, there has been movement of the tenant mix around her salon. The empty units were gradually occupied again. The KZX massage unfortunately closed, and was taken over by a partnership between HW and the owner of the maid agency on level four. They decided to start a "drinking place", which was kind of apt for my mom since she's seen as the "big sister" for the area, especially with her sociable personality.

In fact, mom has been putting this small round table with a few chairs right outside her salon, as a meeting point for her and her friends. When I visit her, I would hang out with her at this table over red wine, and then it would become a nice spot for us to catch up. 

So this evening, I surprised her with a smart watch as a Mother's Day gift. I reckoned that while she's never really wore a watch before, a smart watch would be useful for her to track her steps, monitor her sleep as well as to measure her heart rate (and of course, the smart watch can be a nifty gadget in notifying her incoming messages while she's busy with a customer's hairdo).

Tigger and Yuki

I've two cats. Tigger is my male Oriental Shorthair cat at 8 years of age. He's very adorable, and usually follows me around like a dog. He sleeps on a little pillow right beside the pillow that I sleep on my bed, and he's been doing this for the past 8 years. 

Yuki, is the sister of Tigger. She's a 7-year old Khao Manee, and has a nice white coat and lovely greenish-yellow eyes. She's a little more edgy than Tigger and is generally more aloof except when she's expecting her chicken-tune breakfast.
