Beautiful Lights at Kek Lok Si Temple

We decided to go for a drive to have a look at the lights at Kek Lok Si Temple. This year the lights were put up for a shorter period. Ko-ko didn't want to go, preferring to stay at home in front of the tv. Could not even entice him with promises of supper from McDonald's.
Traffic headed to the temple was heavy but thankfully moving. There was a long queue going up so we just stopped at the road to have a look and take a quick photo.
You enjoyed them, but you were more keen to know when we'll be going to McDonald's as daddy had mentioned! Need to be careful of what we say around little ears!!

Triple Jump

You came back yesterday and told us that your teacher selected you to participate in the triple jump in school.
This morning you added: I'm so short and heavy and yet teacher picked me...
You know what? As long as you try your best and have fun. Winning is not everything. Good luck in the competition.

Chinese New Year in School

You picked something to wear (Hello Kitty shirt.. no surprise there) to school yesterday. Thinking that since it was the last day before the Chinese New Year, I asked to confirm that you did not need to wear Chinese costume. Oops you had forgotten.
So here you are in your cheongsam:

Weigh in Day for Evan

Today is weigh in day. So you have been thinking of ways to ensure that you are not too heavy when your teachers ways you.
This morning you did not finish your Nutella bread (although you clearly wanted to). Milk was drank 80% and then you told me you'd go upstairs for a quick exercise before taking a bath. You've weighed yourself so many times this morning: once after breakfast, after shower and after clearing your system (the last one made you happiest).
On top of that , you plan to empty your pockets to ensure minimal excess weight *laugh

Good luck in your weigh in. Kiss kiss

*You ended up with one last weigh in just before leaving for school. Snd you even did some push up before that too

Christmas Dinner

Dinner was planned to start at 3pm. But in the end we started at around 6 pm. First on the menu is crostini.. cheese and tomatoes on baguette. We also had a ham platter. All these served with white wine:

Earlier, daddy had already cooked the pasta sauce. It was for Spaghetti Marinara. After we had eaten the appetizers, we continued with the main course with red wine:

Here you are wolfing down the big pate of pasta:

And here is Mei-mei enjoying her "tomato sauce"pasta. She said that it was the best pasta:

To finish the leisurely Christmas dinner, we had a cheese and dried fruit platter:

And the finale for the night was opening presents for you kids. As we had to leave early the next day, you guys got to open your presents on Christmas eve.

Movie Time

We took a day off earlier than the shut down to spend some time with you kids as we had not taken a day off the whole school holidays. Movies and a little Christmas dinner shopping was planned. Since the movie to watch was "Rogue One: A Star Wars Movie" which would not have suited you, I booked tickets for "Sing" for you and me while Ko-ko watched with daddy.

Brunch was a yummy quick lunch in Mandarin Cafe followed by a quick drop by Citibank and then we headed to Gurney Plaza. 

Here are some pictures of you all posing with the props before movie time:

You said I did not take a picture of you with the WHOLE prop.. so have to take another picture:

Tried to take a picture for the both of you while daddy queued to buy water, but could only take of Ko-ko as you were too short.

Had to wait for daddy to carry you so that I can take a picture with the both of you:

As usual halfway through the movie, you complained and said that you wanted to go home. But after some persuasion, you stayed and loved the ending. You were dancing to the songs being sung in the finale.

Before going home, we quickly stopped by Cold Storage to pick up some stuff which daddy needed to cook our Christmas eve dinner.
