Back to SGH Again...
Softly ethereal, as life, these wantans afloat in soup.
Roast pork noodles of little solace.
Hearty Nasi Padang fails to fill the soul.
Salty curry surprisingly good.
Sweetened snow calms the mind's frazzled furrows.
Well, pardon the photos taken hastily with the Sony C905. I wasn't expecting (or rather was hoping not to) see the insides of Singapore General Hospital (SGH) so soon. Mother-in-law has been warded again, likely for pneumonia. I really should have forbidden her to go to that funeral mass where she caught this bug. I had such a strong feeling something bad would happen. Oh well.
The wards are full of people spending Chinese New Year in the hospital - both patients and their families. Viruses, bacteria, accidents and disease know no holidays.
I'll say the SGH Kopitiam foodcourt looks pretty good now. Nice facelift, and they've extended the air-conditioned areas. The Polar Puffs cafe nearby has also been replaced by Bengawan Solo. So many changes in just five months. But the food, well, is still just a tad better than hospital food served upstairs.
