It’s Sunday again. Most people would just laze about until early afternoon before they are willing to wake up to get something to feed their empty stomach. As for me, I woke up at 8.30am and went for an early sundry shopping down at the wet market. I’m going to cook something nice for my family for lunch today. It’s seafood pasta!
