Merry Christmas 2015

It's not Christmas when there is no presents, right? We managed to make you wait till morning then a little longer after lunch. Finally when we got back from lunch,  you both immediately rushed to the house to open your presents.

Here you are helping Evelyn build up her present:

Dinner in Singapore

This is the view we saw on the way to the dinner location.. 

This was our dinner- pizza and wine at California Pizza Kitchen. Perfect combination:

We still had to look at the decorations again. So we walked around more before heading back to the room to rest. This was right outside our dinner location. 

Singapore Science Center

We woke up and had a leisurely breakfast at the hotel and went back to the room to get ready for a day out. We were not too sure on where to go and finally opted for the Singapore Science Center. We took a taxi to the center and this was the first picture of the day:

Daddy kept you two occupied while mummy queued up to buy tickets for the 4 of us into the Science Center and the Monsters of the Sea exhibition. Soon we all entered the Science Center.Here you are posing for mummy:

After walking around and tinkering with the exhibitions, we reached the Atrium just on time for the Tesla Coil Show. Here you are being a volunteer for one of the events:

Here are more pictures of you both having fun in the science center, trying out and experimenting with the many exhibits:

You were very interested as it was pink and there was a little hamster hiding here

This was the "Monsters of the Sea" exhibit which we just went through quickly as it didn't seem too interesting. And Mei-mei was rather afraid.

Trying on the VR goggles. It was so much fun. I also had a go at it.

One final show to watch was the "Fire Tornado Show". It was very interesting but again, Mei-mei was afraid so she watched from further with daddy.

Shortly after that we took a cab and went back to the hotel to rest as Mei-mei was tired.

First Glance at Christmas Lights on Orchard

So after we had out dinner, we headed towards ION then outside to look at the decorations along Orchard Road. There is the famous Swarovski tree which I had seen in picture before we arrived in Singapore:

After wondering around for a while daddy asked you if you wanted to have a look at the "snow" which would be in front of Somerset at the other end of Orchard Road. You said yes, so we battled out way past the very heavy human traffic and finally reached the place with a few minutes to spare before the bubbly "snow" appeared. You both had a lot of fun running around and playing.

Posing with the giant snowman:

Santa and Santarina also made their appearance, so you both also posed with them for a picture:

On they way to the hotel, we stopped by Takashimaya to have a look at the very very very big tree.

Since we were there, we stopped by Cold Storage to pick up some fruits and beef (of which I left behind at the counter other than the beer *sad*).

A Short Trip to Singapore

Daddy had a working trip to Singapore and since the hotel was located just off Orchard Road, he asked if we wanted to join him there for a few days. 

So on Friday, Ah Kong and Ah Ma drove the 3 of us to the airport. This would be an adventure for the three of us as it would be a first time for me to travel with the both of you. Lucky thing just a direct flight to Singapore and to hop into a taxi straight to the hotel.

Daddy was at work and he had already informed the front desk to expect my arrival. So it was a breeze for me to get a new key card. Then we headed to the room where daddy had already stocked up with snacks and drinks for us. 

All smiles as we waited for our flight

Soon daddy arrived back from work. You were both so happy to see him. And so was he. We then headed to have dinner at a nearby food court as it was a Friday and the queue for restaurants were so so so long!

Arguing with a 3Year Old

Evelyn: Mummy,  today I had chippies and nuggets from KFC
Mummy: Did you keep any for me?
Evelyn: No...
Mummy: *showing sad face* How come you didn't keep any for me?

Thinks for a while
Evelyn: You was at work!!
Mummy: But you could have kept for me....
Evelyn: But you was at work!!!!
Mummy: You could have kept until I came back
Evelyn: Who ask you to come back so late???

How do I answer such a question? And yet you were not done:
Evelyn: You already ate biscuit with frosting and chocolate!!

OooOoo... really lost this time.

Happy Birthday, Daddy

For daddy's birthday mummy bought the present the day before and you found out about it. The next morning , I woke up to wrap only to discover we had no wrapping paper at home. So I mixed 2 piece of A4 paper and wrapped then  gave the task of designing the wrapper to you.
You also insisted on a cake. You tasked Ah Ma to buy the cake. As usual daddy already suspected, but it was a lovely surprise for him.

Evan: "Ding Dong". Evelyn, say "Who is there?"
Evelyn: Evelyn
Evan: No... say "Who is there?"
Evelyn: Dylan
Evan: No. You don't get it!!! You must say "Who.. is.. there?"
Evelyn: Who is there?

Haha.. sure is stressful for you to play big kid games with your 3 year old sister.

Adventure Zone Day

So after your piano exam,  daddy picked us up with Mei-mei strapped in the back seat.  Then as we had a heavy brunch we headed to Rajawali to meet up with Miss Beh who had something for Mei-mei since she missed school on Friday (last day of school). After that we went to Golden Sands Hotel for a good time in Adventure Zone.
You both certainly had fun. Can tell from the pictures:

Piano Exam

As I post this I'm glad that it is finally over. After several months of practice and Miss Goh who kindly gave you all extra classes too.
Whatever the marks is, I'm proud that you put in as much effort as you could down to this morning having one final practice  (although you got angry when you couldn't play one of the pieces).
Here you are goofing around while waiting for your turn:

The Little Car Wash

Daddy planned to have you guys help wash his car but every time it rained in the evening. At long last it looked relatively summy last week so you guys quickly changed to your bathers and got ready for your little car wash.

Here are the 2 car wash attendants:

First task: wet the car

Then, wash the car with soapy sponge:

Doing quite a good job:

It started to drizzle as we finished washing the car. So daddy drove the car under the porch and we continued to dry up the car.

After that, we had steamboat for dinner.

Anna and Elsa

You still not over Frozen. And now with your hair longer, I even managed to get the single braid like Elsa:

This was my first attempt.  It was better yesterday. 

Today, you decided to be Anna with the 2 braids:

On Top of Spaghetti

.. was a song Mei-mei kept singing. So we decided to have Spaghetti and Meatballs ala Buppa Di Beppo while Ah Kong and Ah Ma were in Singapore.
I'd say daddy cooked an amazing meal.

Missing Daddy...

.... a bit anyway. So since daddy wasn't around (he went out with his friends for a guys weekend ) you both twisted my arm and insisted that you wanted ice-cream despite having a heavy lunch.

Happy Birthday, Minnie

We have one extra birthday to celebrate this month: Minnie's birthday.
Daddy wanted to buy Uncle Tetsu's cheesecake on the way home from Paragon yesterday. When you heard the word cake,  you insisted that it was Minnie's birthday and she wanted an Elsa cake. But in the end you settled on the cheesecake... Any cake is better than none.  Here you are singing the birthday song and also helping her blow off the candle.

What to do?

So tickled by this. You both wanted to watch daddy try out the golf club but couldn't decide whether to hold hands or to cover your ears!!

Diaper Free

Another good thing abput school was Miss Beh also helped to potty train you. As you were not fully trained when we went to US, I still put you on diapers mainly as we had to travel in the car for long stretches and you were still jet lagged.
But when we got back I totally kept you away from all diapers in the day and even during afternoon nap times. You are really cheeky where it is sometimes impossible to get you to wee wee and then you'd suddenly have to go immediately.
Till now you have been quite good except for yesterday when you did not give me sufficient notice and peed before I could help pull down your pants.
Still,  keep up the good work. We're proud of you.
You're now left with the nights which we'll wait and see for the right time.

Hari Sukan Negara

You had a replacement school day on Saturday as the school took an extra day off during Hari Raya. I think all schools took the day off. But as usual instead of studying you all had some activity planned and this year,  most schools had Hari Sukan Negara I guess part of the government's event. Session for all year started at 7.30 and ended at 12.20.
After the matathon you were given bread and then went to the hall for a student singing competition. You later complained that it was boring. But to me, I'd think that was better than having to study.
A tiring day for us all as I also had to wake up early to get your breakfast ready although lucky thing daddy had a golf game too so he dropped you instead of Ah Ma having to wake up and drop you.

New Favourite

Your latest craze going to school is to put on a grad band. Initially you'd ask to have your hair tied. Then tied to the back and now to put on a head band. I wonder what next.
