Last day of June! K wanted to go to Liang Court for dinner, so we did! K scooted, T cycled, adults jogged. Took us 1 hour 45 min today to complete 8km. Advertisements
Met with cousins at City Square Mall for last minute shopping before school reopens. K needed wet shoes, tops, bottoms for P5 school camp. Cousins went TWICE to the Air Zone. Plenty of nets, plenty of balls, plenty of fun!
Playgrounds are fun no matter how old you may be. Looking back on my blog, playgrounds featured so much in their lives! The both of them are indeed very lucky to have had such a good childhood. It was fun going through their old playground photos from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017!
An owl sent a letter to us last month to invite K to Hogwarts. Letter was signed off by Dumbledore, lol! T went for his first CCA camp last month. Heard from him that there was climbing and games at camp. He had rave reviews about the camp! Four time a year, there a “Eat […]
During the June school holidays, boys went to Cartoon Network’s “Animate Your Life” event with their cousins. There were bouncy castles, trampoline, obstacle courses, etc. Heard from K that it was very fun because he spent the day with his cousins.
Caught the sunset at Angkor Wat last night. Nice way to end our holiday! T was hard at work doing what he likes – photo bombing! Lol! It was a nice trip. Bye, Siem Reap!
Weather is scorching hot in Siem Reap! Weather averages 33 degrees in the day time, so it’s either that we’re sweating it out in a temple or cooling it off in the hotel pool. I definitely will be at least two shades darker after the trip! After 5.30pm is when most tourist-y activities start. On […]
And finally, the last temple we visited was Bayon Temple. It was a big site, and it sits in the middle of the huge Angkor Thom complex. Bayon’s most distinctive features are the massive stone faces that grace its towers. I’m not sure if T meant it, but every time I hear him talk about the […]
Beautiful. Glad we visited Angkor Wat on the second day, instead of the first. Otherwise, we’ll be overwhelmed and not enjoy the smaller temples as much. Angkor Wat was amazingly well preserved. We hired an English speaking guide to bring us around. Fun facts we picked up from our guide – how to use the […]
We went temple hopping today. Visited Preah Khan (large and flat), Neak Poan (small, surrounded by water), East Mebon (my favourite, intricate carvings), Pre Rep (had to climb), Ta Prohm (tree temple, tomb raider style). It was considered a tour because we booked a tuk tuk to bring us around the whole day. But we […]
June school holidays have started! KL wanted to visit somewhere we’ve not been before, so he picked Siem Reap. Great, I’m definitely looking forward to what I’ll discover in the next seven days! Accommodation for the first half of the week was at Koulen Summit Condo. Our apartment was homely and nice. Food was good, […]
Rather unceremoniously, I turned 37 years old over the weekend. Thankful that I am healthy, that I am still alive, that I can afford the time and money to eat out. I definitely ate way too much sashimi and seafood over the weekend! Kok Loon turned 39 years old. Happy birthday to him and happy anniversary […]
We go to Bangkok at least once a year, without the boys. We go there so often that I rarely blog about the trips anymore. But this time round, we did something interesting. We went for a long jog along the Saphan Taksin River. Destination was Anantara Riverside Bangkok. This was the first hotel we stayed […]
Extended family gathered to celebrate Mother’s Day. Grandmas played mahjong. Cousins played with each other. Luke did nothing much, but looked ultra cute in all the pics taken that day!
Awesome to go on separate dates with the boys! On Saturday, T and me had lunch at Clementi. He wanted to eat mac & cheese at Swensons. After that we popped by the library, he went for Chinese tuition, I hung around at the mall, we met up to return home. On Sunday, K and me […]
Snapped at the Mirror Maze at the Science Centre today.
T likes the Road Safety Park so he always asks to go there when the adults can’t decide where to jog. Today K bought his skateboard instead of his scooter. He skated 4km, so that’s a good distance considering that he’s still trying to get used to skating!
It was a good Saturday. K invited T to use his one hour screen time voucher. T washed dishes for everyone. K stuck 3D lenses on the binoculars so everything appeared red + blue. I made honey green tea with aloe vera for the boys as an after-lunch snack.
14 Mar 18 T: If I have a clone, I will make him go to school. Me: 然后你做什么？ T: I rest. And make him do things. 30 Mar 18 After a fight T: I know why Kaizer is like that. People of his age are like that. Me: You mean teenagers? KL: He has been […]
K turned ELEVEN over the weekend! He chose presents instead of money/vouchers this year. My present for him was a skateboard and skateboard shoes. KL’s present for him were new Nerf guns. Because the school declared Monday a holiday (rest day for teachers after carnival), we managed to squeeze in a staycation in Johor Bahru […]
It’s the once in five years Fairfield Funfair! Funfair fell on K’s birthday! K’s class managed two stalls – one games stall and one food stall. K was in charge of collecting balls at the games stall. Their game was easy, and the boys managing the stall decided to all use their own vouchers to […]
Homework. Boys were super pleased to find a rude word in T’s crossword puzzle homework. Had to share with their cousins, who found the rude word at record time too. Lol, their brains are all wired the same way. Origami. K is back in business in making guns. We confiscated their phones two weeks back […]
Our nearest beach was Kamala Beach. Although this stretch was much quieter than Patong Beach (10km away), Kamala Beach was still really commercialized. On our first night, we checked out the brick and mortar restaurants along the beach. Every single restaurant was so touristy and EVERY single restaurant served pasta. T was happy to eat […]
We visited Phuket over the March school holidays. T had a nosebleed that lasted about 5 minutes when we boarded the flight, but he managed to nap an hour after the plane took off. He took an airsick pill and didn’t puke, so that was considered a good flight to me. We arrived on 3.14 – which, the […]
Sports Carnivals are fun affairs. Last year and this year, K took part in sports that were held indoor (good for me as a spectator). This year, his team did v well and he came home with a super nice medal! Next year, T will finally be able to participate in the event as an […]
We renewed our Science Centre membership today. I don’t know how the Centre does it, but they’ve been capping the annual family membership fee at $65 for so many years. Such a reasonable deal! We haven’t been here for a while. Virtual reality is now gone and replaced by a Boeing-sponsored flying exhibition.
Nerf fights. Once in a while when we feel like it, we switch off all the lights at home, hide in the dark, and try to shoot each other. When shot, T always drops down so dramatically! The game is fun! Pineapple boat. Made this on CNY eve. Hollowing out the fruit was hard because […]
Another weekend, another visit to Sentosa! Nobody wanted to exercise with me today, so I jogged on my own and finished before we reached Sentosa. I do not like to lie on sand at all, so while they were playing, I laid on the beach mat to read.
Reunion lunch in JB with my dad’s siblings. Have not seen them in two years. Food was good and it was a nice catch-up! I might visit the restaurant again next time I’m back in JB.
