day 1: 3rd Dec 2010 (Friday)
We went to Singapore for a much-awaited holiday last weekend. My sis who had settled down in Singapore with her Singaporean husband and children, offered us her place to stay during the trip. Which was very very comfortable :-). Aren't we really really lucky? :-D
What's more, they bought us around the beautiful island; the outings couldn't be more enjoyable without them! This trip, though tiring, was really enjoyable and fruitful. Thanks so much, my dear Sis, BIL, G and R!!! We really appreciate your company and your hospitality :-D.
Mainly, our objectives for this trip were:
1. Watch Walking with Dinosaurs by BBC
2. Visit granny and my cousin's new baby, E
3. Outings for the kids.
Yes, the boys got to go watch Walking with Dinosaurs by BBC!
My sis had booked tickets for the boys way back, since early October. She knew HQ is crazy about dinosaurs, as my nephew G is, and this show will be a very special and rare treat for them! HQ and G were of course thrilled and very impatient for the day to come :-D
The tickets that my sister booked was on the 3rd, Friday at 3pm. We left our home in Malaysia at 8.00am, and arrived in Singapore at 12.30pm. After a lunch of yummy chicken rice, the boys (hubby, BIL, HQ & G) left for the live dinosaur show. We girls went to Singapore Expo for a warehouse sale instead (but I didn't buy much, so no photo to show).
HQ kpt his ticket stub after the show, which is now safely kept in HQ's memory box :-D.According to the boys, the show was spectacular. 20 life dinosaur prancing lively on stage! That surely satisfy their insatiable hungers for dinos for awhile :-D.
No camera was allowed. And the place was so crowded, there's no place for the boys to stand nicely to snap a decent picture. So hubby only managed to snap a few blurry ones from his handphone. I sure appreciate these :-)

Flying Pterosaurs Velociraptors hunting in a pack The fight of the Triceratops!Ankylosaurus with Triceratops in the backgroundDino war!A closer look at the tyrant - Tyrannosaurus (HQ's fave)After the show, the boys yakked and yakked about what they have seen (and experienced) non-stop!
Heaps of thanks to BBC for the wonderful show and especially to my Sis for grabbing the tickets!!
