We're off to Singapore tomorrow and won't be back until Monday.
In Singapore we'll be staying as usual with Jai, our young stalwart friend. Jai was not my student but we got to know him through Yuwrajh the accountant (remember?). For the past 22 years Jai has been part of our lives like the others.
On Saturday morning we will menziarah (make a pilgrimage to) the grave at Pusara Abadi where my father and brother have been re - interred, together with six others.
We hope to catch up with Ruqxana the Magic Cook and Oi Bek the Omnipotent one if the latter recovers from her jet lag.
It is only in Singapore that you can get the genuine Mee Rebus and Rojak Mamak. Pasembor is just an insipid version of the Rojak Mamak at West Coast Road Food Centre. This we shall do with Irene the Canary and LadyBird.
The highlight of our mini-holiday is when we get to take a peep at Lely's new flat. This avid photographer from http://www.photoblog.com/pickledherring is going to cook us a meal of ikan asam pedas, dalcha and acar - nyonya style. Pssst...I hope her mum, Mary, is around to supervise.
We are more used to seeing Lely looking like this and a bit apprehensive about her culinary skills.
It promises to be a delightful weekend and we hope to get back to Kuala Lumpur with our waistlines and sanity intact.
This is for all you lovely kids.
Have a peaceful, happy weekend everyone.
