Stinky knows my interest in books and movies that discuss the Holocaust so he was extra pleased when he found this long sought-after dvd. Just reading Ebert’s magnificent review of Shoah made me cry. I think it’ll be a very painful 9 hours.

Mom’s back from Penang. Cooked her dinner last night. Nothing fancy, just pasta with a simple sauce made with organic tomatoes & basil and a side of grilled fillet of shark (very cheap from Cold Storage). It took her mind off what she says is my terrible housekeeping. I knew she wouldn’t be happy with the state of things even if I scrubbed the place within an inch of its life, so this time I didn’t even bother beyond some light vacuuming and mopping. Haha. As expected I got the ‘cleanliness is next to Godliness’ lecture 😀 .

KLCC’s GAP is open! My credit card took some hits last week but I managed to stop myself by thinking about the apartment. I didn’t like the shade of green on a couple walls and since I’m not about to live with it, out goes more moolah to have it repainted. Note to self: skip work when your apartment gets a paintjob done on it.
