One Fine Day At The Venetian Village

One Fine Day At The Venetian Village

One Fine Day At The Venetian Village …
Clowns walking on stilts, or what we call “Stiltwalkers” performed their acts and entertained the audience. You can hear the sound of people chatting, laughing, children running and playing. It was such a festive and jovial atmosphere surrounding the place.

Me, Mom and the Fish

Me, Mom and the Fish

My mom is a funny woman. She tends to forget I’m already an adult (I’m a mom already who has a family) and that YES I know how to cook. ☺

As I was buying some stuff at the market, I saw a familiar fish I seem to recognise, but living in another country, I’m not so sure if it’s what I think it is.

Me: ma what is this fish called? (Sending her the photo by Viber)

Ma: and yes make sure you clean the fish thoroughly. .remove the scales..
Me: yes ma..
Ma: the intestines..remove them and the gills and the…..
Me: yes ma.. (I wanted to say I know what to do with the fish and that I have been cooking for a looong time now)

Oh I really have a unique mom..but I love her so much ☺
