There's something incredibly sensual about Italian food. Unlike Asian fare, which doesn't do much beyond satisfying the taste buds (albeit in a most satisfying way!), Italian cuisine seems to evoke something more - memories, feelings, desires. And so it was, at Al Forno last night, where crab meat farfalle (with chilli padi) was combined with fresh-from-the-wood-oven bacon and egg pizza, topped off with tiramisu and cappuccino - and this, from a non-coffee drinker. Heavenly!

More calcium, anyone?

This morning, I thought I would share some good news with Sophie.

"Sophie, mummy did well at work this year, so my boss gave me a bonus."

"Oh, you did well at work so your boss gave you a bonus? Is that a bone?"

"No, it's not a bone!"

"What is a bonus?"

"It's extra salary."

"Oh, it's a money?"


"Oh ok. That's good."

And that was all.

I'm glad I didn't get a bone!
