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 […]
Brayven turned 9 this week! Last weekend’s gathering at Pasir Ris was partly to celebrate his birthday. So many big cousins and so many small cousins at the party! Grandparents were all stowed away at the mahjong room and only appeared at mealtimes when they were in between games. Good that everyone had their own […]
可可 turns 2 in July! We met at a Teochew Porridge buffet place for lunch to celebrate her turning two. She’s learning how to pose for the camera these days. Cute!
Bangkok. Me and KL took a short trip to Bangkok this month because we always like to travel together on our birthday month. While we were there, we met with Lewis to celebrate his birthday! Spinner. Fidget spinners are all the rage now. Boys forked out $15.90 from their own savings (that’s a lot […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
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.
Had a yummy Christmas lunch with cousins at Bukit Batok. We also took the chance to celebrate the December birthdays in the family. Quite amazing how many December babies there are in this family! And three new dwarfs spotted at Bukit Batok … because my mum is into country decor now!
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 […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
I turned 35 years old today! Happy birthday to myself =) Best friend turned 37 years old so happy birthday to him too! Boys are very good at photo-bombing …
Gong Gong’s a year older and wiser again. We celebrated his birthday at the hospital because he’s currently recovering from a surgery where all the toes on his left foot were removed. The poor blood circulation to his toes on that foot has been causing him a lot of grief for a prolonged period of time […]
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. […]
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 […]
Told him that he’ll never be a 5 year old again once he passes his birthday. He argued that he may become an engineer next time and invent a time machine for going back in time. This year he chose not to have a celebration in school because he wants me to use the budget […]
T is turning 6 this month, and he requested to visit Legoland for his birthday trip. We’ve not been here for more than 2 years! T enjoyed himself tremendously because he met the high limit for the roller coaster rides (must still be accompanied by an adult) and he especially liked the one that got […]
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 […]
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 […]
K is turning 8 next week! He celebrated in school yesterday with his friends. It was a simple celebration where his classmates sang a birthday song for him and he handed out goodie bags. I gave him a £1 per head budget to use for the celebration. He decided to forgo the cake and food and […]
It’s my dad’s birthday today! My brother and cousin had a little celebration for him. As always, my birthday wish for him is to stay healthy. Less infections and less vacations at SGH for the next 365 days … On the other side of the world, we had dinner at Little Bay Farringdon Restaurant which is […]
T finally turns 5 today! We’ve started celebrating for him as early as a month ago. Today’s celebration was a simple one in school with his new classmates. Classmates sang a birthday song for him, classmates sang some other songs after that, and everyone ate a fruit cup. No cake because teacher said there are a lot of […]
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, […]
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 […]
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, […]
I found someone else who shares the same birthday as me! Gen is Titus’ classmate and he’s the one whom we regularly meet up to play/swim with on hot afternoons. Happy 5th birthday, sweet little Gen-chan!
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 […]
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 […]
