Science Center

23 Mar

Ok this is a very belated post.. Haha.. Have been busy with work lately so got less time to update blog nowadays :p

Last last weekend, we brought Vio to Science Center, together with Celestine and her daddy & mommy!

Cheeeerrssss...

Oh do you see the baloon Vio was holding? The staff there gave Vio a baloon gun, and Celestine got a flower baloon. So nice of them! 🙂

I suppose since this year is year of the rabbit, they have some exhibitions related to rabbits.

One.. Two.. Three.. Action!!

One.. Two.. Three.. Action!!

And Vio was so excited to see so many things to push, rotate, etc etc.. Here he is posing as a pirate:

But when we’re about to go to the other parts, he suddenly got so scared. He was so scared to see “Uncle Einstein” going up and down the rope. Everytime we pass by that place (which we need to, because it’s the central room), he would look reaaaaaaally really really scared and cried, refused to go there.. and hug us tight tight… Hm…. The previous time we went there, he was excited to see Uncle Einstein going up and down the rope leh.. Not sure why this time round he suddenly got so scared..

And here’s a photo in the discovery zone…

And before going home… We let Vio play in the water play. He was so excited to see pool full of BALLS.. So he spent most of his time there instead of playing water… -_-

(Pssstt.. while we’re at it.. The cake stand was DIY, and I’m feeling kinda proud of the end result.. Haha!)

And here’s the birthday boy, ready to greet the guests..

And here’s some snapshots of the party.. During the party, Vio was rather shy and prefer to “hide” somewhere far away from the crowd. Though occassionally he’s also playing in the crowd.

Uh-oh.. Why is Vio’s crying?? Apparently he’s shocked because all of a sudden, everybody crowd around him, smiling and clapping while singing “Happy Birthday” song loudly.. Everybody was stunned… And in the end, Vio was led away from the party scene.. Hiding in the kitchen, while mommy blew the candle off.. Ah well, luckily he recovers after few moments, and rejoin the crowd again.

After cake-cutting and eating, luckily the rain stops, so we proceeded to Promenade @ Jurong Lake Park for bubble fun time for the little ones (and those who are young at heart).. The weather was nice and windy.. and everyone’s having fun!

Blow, Sherwin.. Blow..

And I just love this photo below… It shows (almost) all the kids sitting in lines for the photo! Quite amazed that all of them can sit still in the same place at the same time! (though only for very short period).

Overall, it was quite a great time. Everything was according to plan (no major hiccups, other than the star-of-the-day-crying-during-cake-cutting.. hehe..). I certainly hope that everybody had a great time. Thank you for all who had come to celebrate Vio’s 2nd birthday! 🙂

A Bday Party

15 Dec

We went to Allen’s 2nd Bday Party last weekend!

The party started at 4pm. So at 4pm, we started waking Vio up from his noon nap (after 2.5 hours of sleeping), just so that we don’t reach there so late. Once he’s awake, we started preparing and told him that we’re going off to Allen’s bday party. But.. we forgot to tell him that there will be many people there.

Once reaching the door, Vio seems to be surprised at the no of ppl already inside (though it’s not that much), and he refused to come in! Sigh.. we spent a good 5-10 mins just to entice him to enter the house…

I don't wanna go in..

I don't wanna go in..

.. and another 5-10 mins to entice him to sit down with other babies… He seemed overwhelmed by the no of people he’s not familiar with. Lesson learnt: for the other birthday party next week, we must tell Vio beforehand that there will be loooooottsss of uncles and aunties there. Haha…

Oh the activity of the day was finger painting! Surprisingly though, unlike other kids, Vio didn’t seem interested to do painting at all that day. Though at home he normally looks quite interested. Maybe he still feel “shocked” from meeting many unfamiliar people ya…

In the end, he mostly play with the balls while painting, instead of doing the painting itself. Haha..

After sometime, Vio started getting used to the ambience and joining other kids in climbing the sofa and staring at the busy happenings outside (read: looking at MRT and buses passing by)

The party was great.. The food was good… and the kids were happy (with the many snacks and goodies distributed in the party).. I hope Vio’s bday party will be as merry! 🙂

An Old Friend

30 Nov

An old friend of us was on transit here in Singapore before going back Indonesia. We had a dinner with him in Jurong Point! I guess we haven’t seen him for more than 1 year liao. An amazing thing is that.. he doesn’t change at all!

We sure hope that we’ll see him again, hopefully in Australia (since he’s staying there now)! Haha..

We didn’t chat with him for too long, as we need to catch our Harry Potter show! Yay.. been a while since I last step into a cinema (the last one being “Inception”). We bought yummy yummy popcorn, and managed to finish the big box throughout the movie. Ah well, I think it’ll be long time before I can eat popcorn again.. hahaa..

And here’s a rare photo of 2 of us in front of xmas tree decorated with Precious Moments (rare as in: Vio is not in the photo with us, as he was busy eating his papaya). Isn’t it beautiful 😉

Story Alive “Hansel & Gretel”

24 Nov

Just felt like it’s been a million years since the last babies outing. So we decided to have a short one. Only Iggy, Celestine, and Vio joined the outing.

We went to City Square Mall to have lunch together and watch the free story telling session from Leap Schoolhouse: “Hansel & Gretel”.

Waiting for the show

The show begans with promotions about Leap Schoolhouse (but of course. What do you expect if the show is free?) And apparently, the show was targeted mostly for bigger kids. It involved asking few kids to answer questions, go to the stage many times to help setting the scene for the show or to act as Hansel & Gretel.

Though Vio didn’t seem to understand much of the show, he managed to sit down during the whole show. I suppose he enjoyed the scenes of koko and jie-jie going up and down the stairs. And looking at them setting the scenes for the show. Haha.. Overall, it was quite ok.. At least we got a short outing (finally!)

Our Little Reunion

23 Nov

It’s that time of the year again~

Time for me & my friends for our bi-annual “reunion”. This time round is for late celebration of my & Allie’s bday. (very very late, that is.. hahaha). We went to Shin Sapporo Ramen at Suntec. I just realized that I (almost) never try real Japanese Ramen before? Or have I? I can’t seem to remember… Well, maybe it’s because I’m not a big fans of noodle, especially thick ones (I find them to be yucky). And Japanese noodle for me = udon, which is thick. I only like thin noodles.

Well, this ramen shop sells thin noodles too. I ordered their signature ramen: miso ramen (spicy), and changed the noodle to thin ones. It was not bad.. At least I think I’ll try to order ramen again next time. Provided it comes with thin noodles..

We purposely didn’t order any side dish.. Coz we wanted to try this interesting waffle shop that Allie & I spotted before meeting up at the Ramen shop. And.. as usual, it’s card & gift-giving time!

Shy Bday Gals

This year, I got a white 2-way scarf. Thank you galsss.. I like it… 😀

After dinner time, we walked to the waffle place, and *ahem* stop for a while to take photos with the christmas tree.. wahahha..

O Christmas Tree..

O Christmas Tree..

Wah I think Vio would’ve loved the xmas tree bery much! It’s made by all balls! I’m sure he’ll scream “BALLL!!!!” and get so excited and want to take the balls.. Hoho..

And finally… the waffle place! The promotion that made Allie & I interested to have the waffle was a big standing banner picturing a cup of cut waffle with ice cream and belgian chocolate only for $5.8! It sure looks yummy! So we wanna ordered the one pictured in that promo.. And guess what did the person say? That menu is no longer available.. Tsk tsk tsk.. And they still put it up soooo big! Somemore it’s a standing banner, which they have to pack up each night when the shop close. And they still put it up! Such a trap!

Though felt so cheated, we were already there. So we ordered 2 plate of waffle with ice cream (Rum & Raisin and Tiramisu). And.. at least.. it’s nice… yummmmyyyyyyy..

As you can see, the walls are all covered with post-it notes. We were just wondering.. Do you think that it’s all written by someone who’s paid to do it?? I mean, the person who wrote all that are not really customers.. but more of the employees themselves… But ah, well… I guess we’ll never know.. 🙂

West Coast Outing

8 Nov

We had a nice outing to West Coast with our Uni friends. They’ve never tried the go-kart before, so we recommended it to them. Apparently, weekends are very busy time for the go-kart rental. Sooo many people want to rent the go-kart, we even need to put our name down in the waiting list. Tsk! (But that’s maybe coz we want the family go-kart, which I suppose they don’t have a lot).

Looking Cool in the Go-Kart

Looking Cool in the Go-Kart

Oh, don’t worry. We didn’t let Vio ride the go-kart by himself. His foot can’t even reach the pedal yet! We borrow one of the go-kart just for photo-taking.. Hehee :p

First riding the go-kart, pi & I started complaining that the go-kart was smaller than the one we ride on last time. It was soooo squeezy that pi’s leg kept brushing one of the go-kart part while pedalling. And Vio & me can’t sit comfortably too. It’s like we all squeezed in to a kid’s go-kart!

Our Squeezy Go-Kart

Our Squeezy Go-Kart

Halfway down the road, pi has just realized that apparently the go-kart seat can be adjusted!! Aiyo… and the person never tell us…. So after the seat was adjusted, it was all nice and not-so-squeezy already :p

After the go-kart session, we walked to West Coast Plaza which seems to be near, yet so far. Quite tiring to walk there.. We found an inexpensive restaurant and decided to have our dinner there (though pi&I apparently both thinking to have our dinner at Thai Express)..

Dinner Time!

Dinner Time!
