Happy Birthday Singapore!

We went to catch the National Day fireworks today. We jogged a bit at Gardens by the Bay before parking ourselves in front of Marina Bay Sands to catch the fireworks. T was upset because he didn’t think the fireworks was worth the crowd, waiting time, parking fee, jam on the way home. We didn’t […]

Happy 1st Birthday Issac!

Isaac turned 1 this week! Extended family gathered for a BBQ to celebrate his birthday. It was a noisy and sweaty celebration, and the cousins totally enjoyed themselves running around and accumulating sweat! Since it was also my birthday and Kok Loon’s birthday over the weekend, the extended family celebrated for us too. Pamela – […]

Birthday Lunch

Birthday boy wanted to meet his cousins, so I organized a family lunch for him with as many extended family members as can be gathered. One of his fav cousin couldn’t make it, and his 爷爷 was too sick to come. Otherwise, it was a happy enough gathering for him – seeing so many of […]

Happy 10th Birthday!

K turned TEN on Friday! KL got him some science toys and I made him some vouchers to be used in the next 365 days. K went to school as usual on Friday. Except that they counted him as a ten-year-old instead of nine-year-old for his Napfa test that afternoon. Dinner was at a Jap restaurant […]

Hmm…Papa?

K is one day shy of 10 years old! Me and T sang him a birthday song for fun with some biscuits and a tealight. K decided to make funny messages and they gamely posed for pics to send to their papa, who’s on call tonight.

Sembawang Park

We visited Sembawang Park a few weeks back. When I was growing up, I used to come here for BBQs with classmates and friends. So it was nostalgic to jog through the same path that I walked two decades ago. I also realized that the park is actually very small, but it certainly didn’t feel that way […]

Happy 7th Birthday!

T turned 7 this weekend! Birthday boy had the privilege of choosing our meals the whole weekend, so we ended up having an unbelievable amount of pasta over 48 hours …. Birthday boy requested to stay home so he can play his new Lego set. It’s quite a cool set. He’s happy with all the […]

Ninjago

T turns 7 years old this month! Boys get $50 as a birthday gift from us. K chose to spend his money on a few cubes earlier this year. T decided that he wanted a Ninjago set, so we headed to Toys “R” Us to pick it up today.

Cousin’s Day Out

Cousins met to check out Marine Cove today. Place was packed, as expected. Great that it rained heavily when we were about an hour into playing … because half of the crowded left after that. The bigger cousins all like sand so we spent an hour on the beach. Lucian didn’t really want any sand […]

Climate Change

The Science Centre has an exhibition that deals with climate change. We were there two weeks back. Found a machine that tells you how many hours the sun shone in Singapore on the day that you were born. Now we know that in our family, the sun shone the most on the day K was born. […]

Happy 6th Birthday!

T turned 6 today! It’s the haziest birthday he’s ever had. Both grandfathers are sick so there isn’t a family gathering. We brought the boys to Vivo in the morning for T to pick his toy. That was followed by lunch at T’s favourite pasta place, and then it’s back home to play with the […]

Happy Birthday!

My best friend and me turned a year older … again! We’re going for lots of lunches this week to celebrate, and the family is also heading for a holiday on Saturday because it’s the half-term break and we always like travelling on/near our birthdays. K has been busy setting up a picture shop this […]

Orvieto

We’ve just arrived in Orvieto for the second leg of our holiday! Orvieto is a tiny city that sits on top of a large volcanic rock. We are living in a holiday home that oversees the surrounding lowlands and the view is quite awesome. This entire city is quite ulu, and it feels more like […]

Little Bay Farringdon Restaurant

To celebrate T’s 5th birthday, we met up with our friends in London for a Sunday lunch at Little Bay Farringdon Restaurant. T had a children’s meal which consisted of pasta, fish/chips, chocolate ice cream. He wiped out almost the whole bowl of ice cream himself! For starters, the adults had chicken liver, calamari rings, […]

Happy 5th Birthday!

T won’t be able to celebrate his 5th birthday with his family because we’ll be away by then. So we decided to celebrate it for him a month earlier. He was mighty happy about the whole celebration! He loved the lunch box that he received from his grandmother … although that became an object of […]

Happy Birthday to Me!

The both of us turned a year older … again. KL couldn’t get out of the hospital during the day, and the boys had school, so I spent most of the day on my own. I went for a 2 hour jog in the morning, took my time to ran errands and idle at the mall, […]

Birthday Celebration

We were at Port of Lost Wonder in Sentosa yesterday. Everyone was rather jolly because it was a birthday celebration … except for T who was in an exceptionally foul mood because it was not his birthday celebration. He was jealous about not getting a birthday song, not getting to blow the candles, and was pretty much […]

Happy 7th Birthday!

K turns 7 today! The first round of celebration was on Sunday. We sang him a birthday song at the grandparents’ place in the morning (with seven tea lights!), brought him to Sentosa to play in the afternoon, and allowed him to play the iPhone + computer + eat in front of the computer in the evening. The second […]
