Lemon juice with honey

03:34 Yannie 8 Comments

It is always hard for me to spot any lemon selling in the wet market that I used to visit, but I saw some last week. This was the first time I tried making the juice of 2 lemons, 2 oranges and 2 big spoons of honey.
I took one glass of it and I served one glass to my husband. My two cheeky chatter boxes talked to each other when seeing me serving the juice to their Papa.  
4 years old said, "First time, I see mummy making the juice for Papa."
6 years old replied, "Ya, every time Papa makes juice for mummy one, this time finally mummy makes juice for Papa."
Their Papa silent. Their Mummy also silent *paiseh lo!*.
