Found these tucked away among QQ's story books; so cute .

Baba's birthday


Happy birthday, baba! Happy birthday, hubby!

We had a scrumptious dinner at our new favourite Japanese restaurant on a birthday weekend after the kiddos' swimming session. We always order the salted grilled fish, ebiko sushi, karaage, and tempura udon when we're there. Hubs loves their sashimi set. Add another chicken set meal, and we're too full already haha.

On the exact date of hubs' birthday, which is on a weekday, we went for dinner right after fetching HQ from school. It was a simple but happy meal at Old Town White Coffee :-).

And the third pic shows some simple cupcake that I made for hubs. It was my first time whipping buttercream, and it turns out delicious! I quite enjoyed spreading the cream over the cupcakes; messy but fun :-). The wording on the cakies are supposed to be purple colour but it looks like grey... hmmm...

Happy birthday honey! Here's wishing you good health, happiness, and a blessed long life ahead :-D

drama queen

15 April 2014
QQ - 5y 8m old

A series of messages fr QQ to her Baba... Baba has been telling her to finish up her kindy homework after her lunch & bath, but little ms. dilly-dally always leave it till last minute. This evening, upon seeing her Baba driving into the car porch, she rushed to write these messages to Baba...

What I found most interesting is the way she wrote down her relationship with her father (Child and Child to). I think, by writing this, she hoped, will bring down her Baba's anger (if there's any). Kind of like reminding her Baba that she's his child so be kind to her. Hahahaha 

PS: Her spelling is terrible; but she's 5 so I didn't correct her :-).

singapore trip @ 2012 (back-dated)

Just pictures :-)

A visit to the zoo is a must for my kiddos. Sis BIL brought us there; the kids had a great time with their cuzzies, G &R :-D




While we were in Singapore, Rafa and QQ attended a Craft Workshop for 2 days, organised and taught by my Sis' buddy. We hung out in the mall and public library nearby. I was impressed with how organised and convenient the libraries are. Here's Rafa playing at the park after his workshop :-).

QQ got her wish at last to go for the Duck Tour!




The Merlion seen from the Duck Tour. 


We also went to the Gardens by the Bay, which was essentially 2 HUGE greenhouses with monitored tempreture. They were lovely and impressive. Here's what they call the supertrees.  





The first greenhouse that we went to was the Flower Dome. Our cheeky kiddos :-)



Beautiful foliage: 






Pictures taken at the second greenhouse, the Cloud Forest. Here's the fall: 






As we were in Singapore for 7 days, it was a leisurely trip. Unlike previous trips, we took things really slow. Slept more, ate more, shopped more, and did less of sight-seeing. I actually prefer this kind of holiday, less stressful and tiring :-).

On the second day there, Sis drove us to visit Granny. She seemed frail and clueless sometimes, which really broke my heart. The saddest thing was she could not recognize me. The woman whom I respected most since I was a child, the kindest and strongest woman that I knew, the woman who looked after me when I was a child, didn't recognize me :'(. It took her a long time to finally realise who I was. I do so hope I am nearer to her so I can visit her more often.
