I totally forgot about Valentine’s Day till a day before when a colleague asked me what’s my plans. So it was an impromptu dinner at Itacho Sushi for the four of us. After dinner, we popped by a Jap supermarket and they picked their own gifts there. Boys wanted ice lollies and KL wanted canned […]
Snow is fairly rare in London, so I was not expecting to see any on this trip. But Storm Ana dropped a lot of snow in the UK this morning. Lucky for us. Boys were thrilled to see snow falling in the morning. They had a lot of fun throwing ice balls at each other! And […]
The British Museum wasn’t on our to-go list, but since we had a spot of time and it was so near us, we popped in for a short walk. It turned out to be a 2 hour walk through the Egyptian and European galleries. We tried a children’s activity sheet, but it wasn’t very fun […]
K learnt to cook alphabet pasta with Campbell’s soup today. Result was good, but T didn’t like all the veg. He made a ham and cheese sandwich after that for his own lunch.
Friday evening trip to Cremier! So yummy! I had yoghurt pomegranate, KL had hazelnut milk chocolate, K had mango passionfruit sorbet, and T had raspberry lover. Plus, I love their waffles too!
We didn’t drive on the first few days of the trip. When we’re not on our bikes, we pretty much relied on our legs to get around. Melbourne is explorable on foot because there are plenty of sights within walking distance. Although I must say that Perth does a better job in marking out its […]
Saturday jog at Fort Canning Park. The pavements aren’t really made for cycling and scooting, so boys only exercised for only 30 minutes with us (a lot o whining) before we parked them at a spot to play – and the adults continued to jog for another 30 minutes.
First time renting adult bikes at West Coast Park. The boys only joined us for 20 minutes of cycling before they ran off to play on their own.
可可 is turning 18 months and will be joining a toddler class soon! She’s not too much of a babbler yet but she eats so heartily every time I see her. She really likes KL to carry her!
We stayed at Holiday Inn Resort Benoa for five days and boys loved it as usual. They have the same program every day: breakfast, Kid’s Club, lunch, Kid’s Club, swim, dinner, Kid’s Club (sometimes night swim). They play with the same things at the Kid’s Club and eat the same meals every day but they’re not […]
We were in Bali this month! Stayed three days in Hideaway Villas in Uluwatu. It was so “ulu” that our taxi driver could not find the place initially. Each villa comes with a pool and because we ordered room service for all meals, we ended up staying in the villa all the time. Not that […]
Sand play at East Coast Park!
Boys were utterly shocked by how sour the sweet tasted! T couldn’t finish eating his sweet, gave up after licking it for a few seconds. K survived and asked for a second one, hahaa!
Brother makes him happy by twirling him around. Brother makes him happier by twirling with him. Brother makes him cry by twirling him too fast. A gamut of emotions all in span of THREE MINUTES.
I love my new camera!
Happy to have purchased the entry level EOS M10 as my newest camera! Chose this camera because it’s easy enough to use after a bit of fiddling, cheap enough for a camera that can change lens, and small enough to fit into my bag. Hoping to use it to take a lot of nice pics during our […]
K fiddled with the Paint program on my computer and came up with this picture. It’s supposed to show a torchlight shining through the tree. There’s also a 3D bench and a house at the side.
Hello Isaac, the newest addition to our extended family! Isaac turned one month old on 19 Jun 16. He’s nocturnal for now … Older cousins were making a din the entire afternoon but that didn’t wake him up at all. In fact Isaac slept through his whole first month celebration and only woke up at 7.30pm when […]
Didn’t know what to do with this blog after my father left us. A very big reason why this blog existed was to keep the grandparents updated about what’s happening to the boys on weekdays when they don’t get to meet each other. Now that one grandparent has left us, and we’re spending more time […]
Many months ago in London T was trying to explain oyster sauce to K. Okay in the first place he doesn’t even know what that is. In his muddled explanation, oyster sauce is actually a product of a Chinese religion. Huh?!? What is a Chinese religion? Why is a sauce from a religion? Mind-boggling … Many months ago […]
There are MANY pics in my camera and phone of T eating. Eating at home, eating out, eating at meal times, eating outside meal times, etc. First pic – he’s trying to time how long it takes for Swensens to prep the mac and cheese dish. Answer is 8 minutes. Last pic – he’s trying to cram […]
Midweek dinner at Yomenya Goemon … AGAIN! T really wanted to try the adult portion today, so that’s why we ended up at the same place again. He was literally singing and bouncing on his seat when we were deciding what to order. That’s how much he likes eating pasta. But the adult portion here was actually […]
Midweek dinner at Yomenya Goemon. I like their creamy soup pastas v much, but it’s my first time ordering from their kid’s menu. And the portion turned out to be tiny. Anyway, T’s happy with his dinner and that’s all that matters.
So happy after finishing his adult portion dinner at Pasta Mania this evening!
We were out today and boys measured themselves at a shop. The last time T was measured in school in July 2015, he was 113cm and 18.6kg. K hasn’t been measured in school for more than a year. Hopefully he’ll hit 130cm soon!
Before I came to London, I’ve not gone out of my way to eat courgettes (otherwise known as zucchinis). I’ve never bought any from a supermarket before and they don’t feature in my diet at all. In London however, they pop up everywhere in the vegetarian meals I order … and I’ve come to like […]
T has been interested in tying shoelaces after watching his brother do it so often. And when this little boy is interested in something, he gets rather obsessed about it. Sometimes in the evenings, we find him sitting at our shoe rack area and fiddling with our laces, which is ewwww so dirty. Last week, I […]
Lovely scenery along the entire stretch of the Windermere Lake =) It’s certainly worth another visit in winter when the landscape around the lake turns white and frosty!
In the last few days of T’s mid term break, we traveled to Lake District with two of my friends. It was a quintessential English break complete with a boat ride, buying Peter Rabbit merchandise (Beatrix Potter spent her summers here), eating pie + mash, fish + chips, scones + cream …. yumz!
We had a really terrifying experience in Cotswold! When we were looking for our hotel on Saturday, we followed a map with public walking trails that brought us through the wilderness. We got lost with our printed map (no GPS and mobile reception there, obviously) and ended up being surrounded by more than a dozen cows in the […]
