Another dinner and playdate at Glenn’s place. And this time, we have Bret joining us! My dear friend was so thrilled to see his old friend. Shall cut the story short by posting photos.
On the way to Glenn’s residence…
Leia may have a girlish look but…. she behaves very much like a boy sometimes. She keeps asking for “Geron” and she addresses Levonne, “Jie Jie” (Sister).
My favorite picture of all.
For those who don’t know, Glenn is Bret’s secondary schoolmate but somehow I am closer to him than Bret is. Here they are, from Boys to Men.
And I was surprised Geron and Levonne like Bret.
Bret does not always carry babies too as he is afraid of hurting them. It was both stunned and nice… to see him carrying 11 months old Geron.
- Little Boy rejected me last week and I thought maybe stranger anxiety but… he kept going close to Bret and asking him to carry.
- Levonne shocked Bret by calling him “Papa’. Ops.
Dinner was healthy because we have kids and Mr & Mrs Poh were too kind with their treat. They bought much and thread-fin fish for the little ones.
My good friend whom I look upon as elder bro, manned the cooking station.
His brocoli was good! Bret and Leia loves the dish too.
His wife, Peony whom I have also known for years, cooked healthy dishes like vermicelli with sliced mushrooms and shrimps.
I like their steamed egg too! Gotta ask them for recipe.
There were more dishes and the next dinner will be prepared by Bret and me. Maybe steamboat lol.
Wasn’t exactly an Intended Playdate
More of having adult time while the little ones entertained themselves. The three little angels were in their own world running and crawling around the house, screaming with excitement. Children make happiness look so simple.
Bringing children to friends’ place for home cooked dinner and watching our children play and care for each other was something I yearned for.
For the superb hospitality and generous home-cooked food treat from Glenn, I really feel blessed that we are able to bring our families together.
