Was thinking about my aunty’s 75th birthday approaching, and I also came across this wonderful blog by 77 year old Aunty Uta where she shares her memories of living in a different world.
I’ve always admired my aunt’s command of English and I think it’s so cool that she studied Latin in school. She always seems to know the Latin root word and her vocabulary is amazing. Singapore was under British colonial rule when she was little, and Latin was part of the syllabus. She even experienced the time of the Japanese Occupation, and I would love it she started a blog one day. I would be totally hooked on her every word.
Both my aunt and my mum learnt cooking from my grandma and I think my aunty’s cooking skills were as good as my grandma’s. She doesn’t cook much these days, but she still enjoys reading and ‘Readers’ Digest’ is one of her favourite publications. Oh yes, my mum always raves that her big sister was a wonderful seamstress as well. They did it all back then, and I would trade my computer skills for sewing and cooking skills any day.
Just wanted to post this, to wish my very sweet natured Aunt, a Happy Birthday.
