My neighbour, my father's friend is growing watermelons and grapes in his yard. The watermelons are already about the size of grapefruits and he is pretty proud of them. He gave me a small watermelon plant the other day. I dug a hole in the garden near the hedge and hopefully it will survive. Without no green fingers, the only probable thing that survives in this garden are weeds and hardy plants.
If i am successful with the melons, Jaiboo might have watermelons next time he comes home :)
Dom is becoming quite the senior dog that he is. He is so bored without the cute little one around here. Yes.. cuteness sells. He's been sleeping the whole day. But its really too warm for him to do anything else. His friend Lester haven't come by for quite a while now. I wonder what happen to that little guy. The little guy usually escapes from his big house few roads away and comes running back to our neighbourhood to visit his friends braving traffic and heat. Quite a trooper.
1728 hours. I should probably start cooking dinner. But since its been extremely warm today, i'll do something light and easy. Porridge. When i get a bit too lazy to cook, i do a one pot thingy. Not much of a cooking involved but the porridge is good enough to get us through the day.
Dad don't actually eat quite a lot for dinner. He munches on a lot of stuffs throughout the day and when it comes to dinner, he is actually quite full/half full. My cooking portions are getting smaller and smaller that sometimes its getting a bit crazy. But i don't quite like to have leftovers and wastage. Whatever that gets into the fridge as leftovers sometimes stays in there and gets forgotten.
Cooking rice even became a challenge. We have a big rice cooker here. And cooking one cup of rice in this rice cooker is pretty funny as the rice is just at the bottom bit of the pot. Its not even an inch. Wastage when the rice gets stuck on the bottom. So now we just steam the rice in a small steel bowl. Just enough for both dad and i.
Boy is coming home for a short break tomorrow. I haven't seen him for the longest time. I bet he is just as excited to come home and sleep in his own room and on his own bed. Even for 2 days would be quite a luxury for him. Cooking will take a different turn tomorrow :) We are cooking for one more person and that should be more fun.
Watermelons if this survive :)
