Had to go to the Treasury department to sort out Papa’s pension and to activate Mum’s pension. The staff there were helpful and sympathetic; who says civil servants are all automations.

Mum was having her hair done so we met up at the small market for a quick dinner. Originally wanted noodles but ended up having dim sum for dinner.

Still trying to keep busy. It’s starting to sink in. I keep thinking Papa’s just gone to the library and he’ll be back later. The hole in my heart grows bigger and deeper.


Completely random change of topic, here’s something I spotted. The ubiquitious street food, egg waffle, transformed into a hipster dessert. Instead of the usual waffle cone, it’s egg waffle with ice cream. Actually it’s a good idea.
