Millionnaire’s Fried Rice With Crabmeat & Omelette

I love the smell of this dish. Crabmeat – adding this ingredient into the rice immediately transforms a simple plate of fried rice into a most wonderful, delicious, fragrant, artisanal plate that smells like a million dollars.

家常便饭 – 猪肉焖马铃薯 (Potato & Meat Stew)

The second week of school and work is finally over. It was kind of crazy, and I almost fell sick running (or rather, cycling) all around the central parts of Singapore. But all in all, I’m so glad that things went well, and the boy enjoyed his school and student care a lot, and he seems to be learning well and making friends in class as well. Hopefully, Covid constraints do not penalise these children too much and take away too much of what they deserve to have and experience as part of school life; hopefully we do not take any more steps back to how it used to be one or two years ago.
