Rantings or ramblings??........

Yesterday morning while driving my 2 boys to school, i heard on the news that the sugar price will increase after the Chinese New Year. Heart dropped on the floor for awhile. It is not my house consumption that i worry about as we are very low sugar users, it is my little home bakery business which would be badly affected. Only in my last posting , someone mentioned that my pricing is very low, and that was not the first time. I thought about increasing the price a little after last Hari Raya, but i didn't. However, with this incoming increase of sugar price i really had no choice unless i do the baking for charity.....enough about that...i had a pleasant teh tarik session with my big boy yesterday evening. He shared what just happened during the supposedly trial debate. He was not very keen to participate but when the topic was "Same gender marriage should be allowed", he just walked out. And I support his action there as i think that was not an appropriate topic for a school debate. He also told me thats he is coping well with the new subjects such as Physics, Chemistry and Additional Maths. He must be having his father's brain he he.....i pray he will continue to enjoy his school years.

Some dinner dishes we had a few days ago.....

Zai, who on earth suggested that topic for the debate? Even here, there's much talk against that. I think, may be i am a prude, that it is a no go in the first place as it is wrong. What are the pros for it? Good that your boy walked out - what says the teachers who are supposed to advise?

anyway, I too think i must cut down on sugar - and now is the time.

Zai,

Pandai ke hapa the person(s) who came up with that debate topic??? Now we really wonder what other topics they'd talk about in school :0

Kak Teh,

You are definitely not a prude...i feel the same way too...i was so taken back about the story i forgot to ask who was the teacher in charge...

in drinks bole la cut down or i dont mine 'kosong' drink also...but kalau desserts no sugar macam mana ek??

Sugar going up in price? Its funny I always read of prices going up in Malaysia, but disini still the same.
