Lessons from little girls

D and I were in church yesterday and shared a table with two girls, one primary 3 and the other primary 4. They were given a bunch of confectionary and snacks from a prior birthday celebration and talking between themselves about stuff.

At some point, they were struggling with opening a package of Oreo cookies and I offered to do so for them. I said, "Come let auntie help you open that."

Said Pri 3 girl gave me a bewildered look, replying, "Huh, you mean you are married??"  (So now you know how a Pri 3 person defines "Auntie".  Hahhaa. So tickled!)

Catching up at Sushi Kuu

One of the newer ("new" is all relative eh) sushi places that I tried is Sushi Kuu at Palai Renaissance. Both times I had the kaisen chirashi.
