Hee hee hee!

Now I can't help thinking of Kak Teh when I think of ... get this .. a spoon! Spoon, spoonerism, same thing lah!

Yvonne Lee said...

Hey, look, this is the start of something! Good for you to put them together and I still hope that one day, they'll be materials for your book.

I'm still fascinated on how you got this Eh Poh Nim series started. You know, you are one brilliant housewife leh...you don't mind this housewife calling you housewife hor?

Cheers,
Yvonne

KT : Spoona Isma, Mel Apro Isma, waiting eagerly for your coming!

Queen : that means you'll always be thinking of Kak Teh, you eat everyday with spoons, right?

Yvonne : Hopefully. Any publishers out there interested pls contact me. Fat hopes, right. Must go knocking on doors, they don't come to you. Nolah, I not brilliant, not in conventional sense of the word. Sometimes inspiration strikes, just grab lor. Certainly I don't mind being called a housewife. I'd been calling myself homemaker for years, until Desperate Housewives came along and made 'housewife' even more glamourous than 'homemaker'.

Hi Lydia.

Like your The dogged cobbler's story.

Off and on, I read something written by you and the name as I far as I can remember, reminds me of someone with very good English.

Best wishes for Chinese New Year!

Kosong cafe, Thanks for your kind words and festive wishes. Glad you like the dogged cobbler story.

This is the first time I did a search on 'kosong cafe' instead of 'kosongcafe' and found your reply dated Jan 30, 2006!

Anyway, it is not too late to wish you happy new year 2008 and Gong Xi Fa Cai.
