The food was yummy - shitake mushroom, golden mushroom with fish slices and fish cake. broccoli with prawns. I don't really like the veggie as a soup dish but it's ok - I just eat and drink it.

The fine weather and nice scenery were very therapeutic for me.
A stray dog was resting at the jetty of Pulau Ubin. We took a short ride in a mini van to get to Chek Jawa.
I visited Chek Jawa before with FR and friends a few years ago on 2 cycling trips. Then the tide was lower and we could see creatures in the sand bed.
The present Chek Jawa has board walk erected over it and that day the tide was high and we could only see mudskippers.
What we could have seen if it was low tide and we can view them through this glass panel at the board walk:
But I could still admire the nice fluffy clouds, the half-submerged mangrove trees, their exposed roots, etc.
We also went up the Observatory to get a bird's eye view of the area.
There was also an Information kiosk nearby.
This dog looked headless but actually this is how he really looks like :)
Near the kiosk are the quaint-looking toilet
and visitor centre - tudor style.
There is a tank in the centre that houses injured and recuperating sea creatures. At the back of the centre, my friends said they could see some big fishes swimming along the bridge.
It was really nice to take a small break off work to enjoy nature :)

fish and chip (I forgot to take a photo of that),
sliced beef sandwich (I like this best - lots of onions, thinly sliced tender beef and foccacia bread)
and giant Italian sausage.
I guess what made the meal taste great was the company of friends who enjoy eating :)
Dad has used the metal fences my friend Joan used to keep her dog Harry in to make a gate. We are not sure how long that will prevent Angel from entering the kitchen as he may one day be able to jump over the gate.
These few days, our firm "no biting" doesn't seem to work on Angel. He will bite hard on my hand or arm and not let go. When he turns wild, I will put him into the cage as a "time-out" session for him. He will usually calm down after that.

Angel was sleeping in Sis' bedroom next to My Little Pony and her pull buoy.
I baked ginger cookies which my family and some of friends like.
I had plain yogurt mixed with cocoa powder and honey when I was feeling peckish before dinner.
Dawn has pointed out on her blog on a nice cartoon on today's Straits Times National Day special supplement. It shows a lady feeding cats on National Day evening. That was how my mum and I spent our evening just now after dinner. We are very happy to be able to see our community cats taking their food and resting without any worries.
