Avent Calendar: Done…

Doesn’t mean there’s something inside the little bags.
If only I had known this was coming

This has nothing to do with the previous posts of planning and messy creativity… I’m not completely satisfied with the outcome so need to tweak it a bit more

Creativity is messy.

Fun fact:
A drop of weak tea in sparking water can pass as champagne.
Water and grenadine syrup can pass for red wine
Mix it with the “Champagne” above and you get rose/white wine.

Also note to self: keep a bottle of white wine and red wine in addition to the champagne bottle you’ve already saved as a prop. ;-).

Monday Murals

These three rock paintings depict the use of plants as medicine. They are one of four sets of rock murals found in the Singapore Ethnobotany Garden

Ethnobotany Medicinal Mural

Plants are widely used as medicine in many cultures around the world. In Singapore, the Chinese continue to practice TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) which was passed down from generations. An interesting practice is the Moxibustion, a form of heat therapy in which dried plant materials called “moxa” are burned on or very near the surface of the skin. The heat warms and invigorates the flow of Qi in the body.

When your Scottish born son who has lived in Scotland, France, China, Norway and Singapore but with an American (& French!) passport tells you he wants to “celebrate” Thanksgiving…

There will be no 5kg (S$70) turkey, stuffing or pumpkin pie instead we’ll have chicken breast with roasted potatoes But with cranberry sauce 😉

And watching a projection of Charlie Brown Thanksgiving like every year.
