10 things about po po

opps not 10 but actually 8 random facts about po po (see speed reading does this to you)

Got a tag from this prettiii mommiii

1. she can cook up a storm and the entire clan loves her cooking. she's famous for her assam laksa (my fave), kau yoke (pork & yam dish), chui keok chou (pig leg vinegar - confinement food that we love to eat everyday), tomyam salted fish...kuih kuih muih muih (vely hungry now!!!) must make a note to self, must write up all these recipes so that i may attempt to do it one fine day!!!

2. she loves ironing, she spoils us. if i have no maid, i am sure my pile of un-ironed clothes will not take any effort to grow to a mountain in no time, but po po will make sure that she conquers that mountain for me.

3. she loves her grandkids and they love her to bits too coz she cooks all their food. reserve or keeps the steam chicken thigh for jern, black sauce chicken/pork for erika & synn-yi, fried chicken for ellisa & sean...wah a lot of chicken & pork hor...coz elli can't eat anything else.

4. she got married on april fool's day. wei that day good auspicious day wor in the chinese lunar calendar!!! cannot forget wan!

5. she had me & yee ma when she was still in her teens, then kau fu when she was 21. now she's the envy of her friends.

6. she is one super sales lady and was top of her field in her hay days! from tupperware to furniture to stainless steel cookware. gifted leh!

7. besides being a wife, a mother, a grandmother, sister, chef, she's also a sunday school teacher, cell group leader, baby sitter, tuition teacher to 5 of her grands. the roles she play!!

8. po po is a people person and loves to help out in any way she can. she's even done missionary travel to east malaysia, gone to the jungles, sat in a long boat, hiked for miles just to reach out, cook up a storm and make a little difference. all i make sure is she gets her travel insurance!!

another thing, born in year of the dragon...can be very fierce dragon lady too!!
