Of chopsticks and doughnut

Last Sunday, we went out for brunch at a restaurant in SS2. The restaurant keeps a container of chopsticks on each table. Since it was easily accessible, Yiu Yiu insisted on eating her kuay teow with a pair of chopsticks. I’m not sure if she has used chopsticks at the babysitter’s before but as far as we are concerned, she’s never used chopsticks at home. We tried to persuade her to use the fork and spoon instead, as we were sure she would make a mess of herself, plus it would take forever for her to finish her meal. The stubborn mule that she is, she of course didn’t listen.

Surprisingly, she handled the chopsticks really well. She obviously didn’t use it the right way, as in picking up the noodles between the two sticks, but rather, she used them to scoop the noodles (with the noodles resting on top of the sticks) before putting them in her mouth. Occasionally, she’d use the chopsticks to sweep the noodles into her mouth directly from the bowl, similar to how rice is eaten with chopsticks. But I’m really surprised at how well she handled the chopsticks, and the best part was, NO MESS. :-) Looks like I underestimated my little girl.


We went to Ikea after that as we wanted to browse for furniture for her room. We have been psyching her about moving to her own room, with the promise of decorating it with princessy stuff. When we left, we passed by the Dunkin’ Donuts kiosk and she asked for doughnuts. I tried to stall by telling her we’ll buy one at the Big Apple Donuts at NZX on our way home. I knew she was sleepy and most likely would fall asleep in the car, and true enough, she did. However, the moment hubby turned off the car engine in the porch, she woke up, and guess what was her first question? So we had no choice but to go pick up a chocolate doughnut for her. See how she enjoyed the yummy chocolatey treat.
