Babysitting continued: Big Monster's activities continued on till Saturday. At 9:00 AM, he had replacement home tuition for two hours. Once that ended, we had to rush him to Sri Petaling for his science class. Then it was breakfast for Little Monster at Jojo Little Kitchen for his favourite pork ball pan mee. We had an hour to kill, so we hopped from shop to shop. Sri Petaling suddenly gave birth to several specialty grocery stores, exclusively selling snacks and drinks from Thailand, Taiwan, China, Japan, and Korea. Once we got tired of walking, we sat down at Inside Scoop for ice cream. Got the small one a scoop of strawberry yoghurt in a chocolate cone. When the one hour was up, we picked up the big one and brought him to lunch at Jojo Little Kitchen AGAIN. These kids need more variety.
At 4:00 PM, the kids had swimming lessons. Due to some misunderstanding, I thought that they would be picked up from home, but turned out that I was supposed to send them to KM1 East. So, it was another rush job when we received a call from the instructor. That was the last activity of the day, so we rushed back home to get ready for a wedding banquet in Klang. BIL's friend was tasked with sending the kids to SK's house. By 6:30 PM, we had picked up mum's friend, and were on the way to Restoran Taman Rahsna. When I walked to the front door, I congratulated a pair of old folks that I thought were the parents of the groom. But after letting go of my hand, they gave me a puzzled look and asked if I was friends with the bride or the groom. Actually, there were two wedding banquets there that night. I was supposed to go to the back. Opps. Food was quite premium (fish maw, sea cucumber, cod fish, large freshwater prawns, scallops), but the arrangements were a little lacking. The PA system sucked and we could hear all that was going on at the adjacent party. No door gifts were given out but they did have a instant photo booth for guests to go crazy.
By the time we got back to KL and picked up the kids from MaisonSK, it was already midnight. As I ushered them into the car, they were practically sleepwalking.
