You informed me the moment I got home that you were to wear school t-shirt the next day due to some event in school. Went to your room later to pick clothes for the both of you and found this:

Our conversation on the way to school yesterday morning.
Evelyn: Mummy I don't know what to do.
Mummy: Why? What happened?
Evelyn: W and H both want to marry me.
Before I could answer
Evelyn: Who should I choose when I grow up?
*Thinking to myself: Lucky she didn't say choose now!!
Mummy: Pick the person whom you love and loves you back a lot too
Phew... and luckily that was the end of the conversation. I wonder what was going through daddy's mind on this topic *grin*

It was a wonderful birthday. Woke up to this beautifully made card which came with a red "Apple" *wide grin*
Mei-mei also painted me a big pink heart for my birthday later in the day
My "red Apple".. ahhh... happiness
Ah Kong and Ah Ma treated us to Dim Sum lunch to celebrate my birthday:
As usual, since we were in the Komtar Dome you requested for a dino ride. Super expensive but you had fun and a big smile as you rode the triceratops which you picked:
Ko-ko and daddy in the meantime went for the VR battle "Space Time Squadron"
Since they were not done yet, you went for another ride on the carousel. As you were tall and brave enough to go on your own, I didn't need to join you. You were the only one on the carousel!!
The finale for my birthday was dinner cooked by daddy. It was Prime Roast with vegetable medley. Superb!!
Of course, it was paired with only the finest:
Even had breads heated up in the oven before being served:
Thank you to the both of you kids and also daddy for making this a special birthday. Love you all loads.

After so much stress (both the both of us), we finally agreed to stop attending music class. Although we planned to complete the JXC, you do not seem to want to spend any time practicing music. So rather than wasting time and spending more on the lessons, we decided to end. This picture is of you and Bryan your friend of so many years who is also your classmate in Rajawali.

It was a wonderful Mother's Day celebration. I got handmade cards from the both of you. Here's the one Evelyn made in school. The teacher picked very meaningful wordings for the card:
And here is the beautiful handmade card from Ko-ko. With.. er... interesting wording. But still it's a good reminder to exercise and so much love in the card. Makes me feel so happy.
As it was a Sunday, daddy and I started the day off with our usual breakfast date while the both of you are in British Council for classes. This is our favorite, thosai. Yummy....
We went to Gurney after lessons and had our lunch in The Barn which had a special on Iberico pork. Was a lovely lunch with the family.

We had a dimsum brunch with the newly weds and Uncle Kevin's mummy and aunty.
Only Ryan got to come as he did not have school that day.
We went back to pack and buy a few things. We waited for Nat Kor-kor to come back and sayour goodbyes before hopping into the car to pick up Ah Kong, Ah Ma and have dinner with their hosts.
Only picture of our dinner. This amazing platter of oysters.

It was a day with a simple plan: eat Vietnamese, visit the Monash University grounds and to visit Chadstone Shopping Center.
So here we are with out Vietnamese coffee and Pho:
Somehow only had this picture in my phone of Monash University. It has changed so much since we left so many years ago. The buildings look so modern now and there is another multi-story carpark!
Daddy got a little lost getting to Chaddy, but we finally got there. We split up so that we could do our own shopping. Mei-mei came with me while Ko-ko went to Legoland with daddy.
We stopped at Target where you even got a mini shopping trolley to use:
All tired out from walking
Dinner was with the Ban clan and our hosts (Peter, Fiona, Chee Meng and Fiona). It was a yummy feast!
We took up a big portion of the restaurant!!
Back home the kids had a wonderful time (final night) with Uncle Ollie:

Ir was a lazy day for us. Daddy, Ashley Kor-kor and I headed to the nearby supermarket to buy some groceries to cook out brunch. We ate a slow brunch while enjoying the weather and scenery. Soon it was time to shower and get ready to make a move back. Before we left, we took many pictures.
3 youngest kiddies
Kiddies with Nat Kor-kor and Uncle Ollie
The both of you wanted a picture with Uncle Ollie
Next stop was the Yarra Valley Chocolate Factory. Here is nougat:
Jackie Ah Chim treated the kids to ice-cream:
We walked around to enjoy the view. Look at the "big" chocolate:

This was our tasting platter. We enjoyed this while Kor-kor had the "tour"
And of course, Mei-mei KO-ed on the way back.
Daddy dropped Ah Kong and Ah Ma back at Uncle Peter's place as they had dinner plans the we headed back again to Public Brewery for dinner.
