Fun Time at Smaland (Ikea)

I've reached a milestone..... I'm now 90.5cm!!!!

The bad news: I am supposed to pay for children fare when I take the mrt and bus, but Mummy still act blur everytime she brings me to take the bus wahahahaha!!

The good news: I can now go into the Ikea playground, aka Smaland !!!!

So today, Daddy and Mummy brought me to Tampines Ikea to try out the playground. The gor-gor at the counter had to measure me to make sure I have passed the 90cm mark. But he cautioned that because there are lots of bigger kids there, they may be too rowdy for a small girl like me. And also the ball pit is quite deep too. But because I wanted very badly to go, Mummy and Daddy decided to let me go, but monitor me closely from outside.

No problems at all... I was enjoying myself very much, running around, picking up the stray balls on the floor, or sit at the edge of the ball pit and picking up the ball using my legs, as I dared not go inside. The one time I went in, I struggled like crazy to get out (but at least I managed to get out all by myself!!!).

video

Then I saw the gor-gor and jie-jie picking up stray balls on the floor and returning them to the container .... so I followed suit. Was so greedy that I picked not just 2, but 3 at a time .... struggled to go down the steps and in the end, gave 1 up. See how 怕死 I am, don't even dare to walk down the stairs without railings. Even had to adjust my position several times when I went down the stairs .... Actually it's because I am a very careful kid that's why Daddy and Mummy dare to let me venture in there with all the big gor-gors and jie-jies

video

In the midst of all the fun, my number tag came loose and slipped to my ankles .... but I was so eager to go back to play with the balls that I staggered with the number tag at my ankles ... Daddy watched from outside and almost fainted (cos he was so afraid that I will trip and fall over) .... so he quickly went to the counter and get an Ikea staff to tie the number tag back for me ...

video

video

After that, I went back to my "pick ball, go up stairs, climb down stairs" fun .... Then I got distracted by the TV at the other end, which was screening kiddy shows .... I quickly ran over to the TV corner ... was too fast for Daddy and Mummy and they thought I was still at the plastic ball corner .... when they suspected I had slipped over to the TV corner, they heard crying sounds .... it was ME CRYING !!!

I was too small sized among all the big gor-gor and jie-jie so someone accidentally kicked me near my nose .... luckily, the kick was not that strong so I just cried for a while .... Daddy and Mummy brought me out afer 45 mins (instead of the maximum 1 hr that I intended to stay inside) ...

Nevertheless, it was really a fun experience .... I told Daddy and Mummy that I want to come back and play in Smaland .... why not, parking is free, admission to Smaland is free .... what else can they ask for ... ha ha

A Fun Day at Sentosa

Today, Daddy and Mummy decided to bring me to Sentosa to have some fun at the Palawan Beach. We reached the beach at about 0930 hrs (after finishing my milk at home before setting off). The idea was to have a picnic for breakfast so Mummy prepared some bread with pork floss for all ....

Since all the rest were earlier than us, so 姑姑 and 爷爷 decided to explore the Palawan beach while 奶奶 and 叔叔 stayed behind to wait for us ....

After my breakfast, I was all charged up to play with the sand .... so I changed into my swimming costume and started building "sandcastles" with all the barang barang .... of cos with the help of everyone ....



Close-up view of me .... somehow got distracted by something far out there ....


Daddy was splashing water at me (from the sea) while 姑姑 was helping me to splash water back at him .... then something funny happened .... 姑姑 was so anxious to splash water back at Daddy so instead of just using hands, she took the pail of water and directed at Daddy .... ended up splashing water on herself and myself as well .... that was so hilarious !!! Daddy and Mummy (the videographer) was laughing like crazy !!!


video

See Mummy and 奶奶 taking a break in the shade .... and taking care of our barang barang

Then it was 爷爷's turn to take a break with 奶奶. Does it look like 奶奶 was doing some weird dance ??? Ha ha, just happened that Daddy took this shot when 奶奶 was going to take something ....

After all the fun with sand, Daddy brought me to have some water fun !!! See me trying to catch the water fountain, BUT ....


Ended up having water splashing on my face instead .... Daddy trying to "stop" the water from splashing onto my face because I just hate water splashing onto my face !!!!

My Hero Daddy trying to protect me against water falling onto my head ....


Daddy and Mummy said I am a timid kid .... insisted on Daddy to carry me later on because the water fountain looked too intimidating to me !!!! Think the water fountain at the Botanical Gardens suits me better since the fountain height is lower.



After all the fun with sand and water, Daddy and Mummy cleaned me up so that we can go for lunch later.

While Daddy went to wash up, the rest of us took the free tram ride at the Palawan Beach .... I just love taking trains .... will go crazy whenever MRT trains pass by .... and I always insist on Mummy sending me to school everyday (instead of Daddy) so that I can take the MRT train and bus to school, instead of taking Daddy's car !!!! I even know how to pronounce the MRT train station (Boon Lay) which I alight everyday when I go to school.

Since we were too early for buffet lunch at the Silver Shell Cafe at Rasa Sentosa, Daddy and Mummy brought me to explore the hotel ... then I discovered "heaven" ... an air-con place with lots of kiddy toys and cars !!!! Just like my school playground !!!!



See me concentrating on driving the car to avoid bumping into people .... there was this big bully gor-gor (at least 4-5 years old) who kept intentionally bumping into my car .... and his grandfather just sat there, ignoring this .... so Mummy got angry and scolded the gor-gor in front of his grandfather ... before his grandfather told the gor-gor to behave .... looks like this gor-gor needs someone else to discipline him .....

Errr ... Daddy, what are you doing ??? This is my pet phrase of late .... I became more inquisitive recently .... kept asking questions like "Where are we going?", "What is this ?", "What sound ?", "What name ?" etc .... I am becoming a 问题儿童 !!!!


Sharing my food with 叔叔 ... guess what was that ??


French fries !!! My favourite .... Mummy 破例一次, after I have eaten my rice ....



While having lunch, Daddy caught two peacocks outside .... peacock Mummy protecting the peacock Baby ..... just like Mummy protecting me !!!!

I was so tired from all the morning fun that I fell asleep in the stroller within 5 mins ....

Look at this other big baby who was tired out by all the morning activities..... Who ask 叔叔 to play computer games till very late last night


On the way back to pick up the car, Daddy saw a solemnization ceremony held at Siloso Beach, next to Rasa Sentosa Hotel .... he actually saw some guests dressed in high heels shoes for the event .... cannot even walked properly on the soft sand ....



We left Sentosa at about 3 pm and went to Vivo City to enjoy some air-con ... I turned a little darker ... but Daddy turned charcoal black .... almost lar .... ha ha.

I was so tired from all the fun that I slept early that night .... think I will keep waking up later in the night because of over-stimulation !!!! Ha ha ....

Playing Volleyball at Home

video

Have a break, have some water .....

video

Mummy's ultimate aim was to make me tired from all the running and playing so that I can sleep early at night ..... but does not seem to work leh ... ha ha

Music at Botanical Gardens

Today, Daddy and Mummy brought me to the Botanical Gardens in the evening (after Daddy had his beauty sleep from his night shift yesterday) to listen to music by the Philharmonic Youth Winds (SSO performance was after the PYW but we left after PYW since it was close to MY dinner time already....)

See me using 2 fans to conduct as the music plays in the air .... Mummy said she saw a photographer taking a photo of me from far .... ha ha. Dunno whether I looked like some crazy little kid or not ....


video

See my funny face .... Daddy has been wondering why I have this expression of late ....



Mummy and I sitting down, enjoying the music, while Daddy kept snapping photos of the symphonic band. A bit nostalgic for Mummy and Daddy since they got to know each other in band many donkey years ago :P



Walking back to the carpark to go for dinner .... got distracted by sounds of insects ....


video


Ate at the foodcourt in the Botanical Gardens before we proceed down to Scotts Isetan for some air-con ....

Hooray .... will have Daddy back for 2 weeks on normal work hours before he restarts his night shift again ....

Story Telling Time

To date, I have a story book on each of the soft toy at home. Everytime Daddy or Mummy read me a story on my soft toys, I will have the soft toy beside me so that he/she can listen to the story as well ... the only missing story book is that on Pooh Bear and his friends .... so Daddy and Mummy bought a Pooh Bear book for me to complete the collection ...

It is a pop-up story book and I was so excited. So after listening to how Daddy and Mummy tell the story to me, I decided to read the book to Daddy ....

It goes like this ....

I read "What is hiding in the ______? Is it a ___? "

Daddy is supposed to say "NO !!!" Then I will push the pop-up card to reveal the hidden animal ..... and the story continues ... ha ha .... simple right ... even a 1 year old kid can do that !!!

video

Isn't that hilarious ??? Cannot even run properly and I am learning to fly ... 真是不知量力 !!!!

Making Kite

Had running nose and slight fever today .... so did not go to school. In order to keep me occupied at home, Mummy decided to make kites with me, since I was so obsessed with the kites at Marina Barrage. Mummy looked around the house and decided to use these materials: Plastic Bag, straws, sticky tape and string


Ta -da!!!! 2 kites.

Mummy also helped me decorate my very own kite. Isn't it cool??!


Mummy said I am not supposed to go out, so this is how I flew my kite ....hee hee hee

video

Being sick can also be fun :P

Marina Barrage Exploration

Daddy and Mummy have heard so much of Marina Barrage so they decided to bring me there before Daddy goes on his night shift starting this week ....

Weather was sunny, but not scorching hot with occasional winds blowing .... would be better if it was a bit more windy .... Mummy decided to change me into blouse and shorts so that I will not sweat like crazy .... unlike the BIG dog, which kept salivating like crazy (and I really meant kept salivating NON STOP) to lose heat .... cannot imagine why there are people who want to keep such big furry dogs and torture them in Singapore .....


Went to the air-con gallery to explore first ..... Because of the swine flu, the management implemented the measure to keep track of people going into the gallery ..... had to fill in a form and survey form, asking whether we travelled overseas, had fever etc .... and then the funny thing is they took the survey forms and handed an orange sticker to us without even measuring our temperatures to confirm we have no fever ....

Anyway, the first stop is the exhibit with lots of plastic water bottles behind me .... Daddy thought it looked impressive .... while I was obsessed with the orange sticker ...

Guess what am I doing ....

有样学样 lor .... doing yoga pose by following the lady on the screen .....

Walking on the glass floor with uncertainty and fear (see both of my hands spread out like an eagle) ..... afraid that I will just fall into the hole when I take the next step .....


Finally Mummy located where I live (Choa Chu Kang) on the Singapore map

And this is where Daddy works ..... Jurong Island (think only Daddy is interested in locating where he works) !!! Lots of oil storage tanks (that's how he figured out)

Took a photo to pledge that we will save the environment and reduce waste .... I was amazed to see myself on the screen !!!

The entire family made an e-postcard for fun ..... the background picture is very nice !!!


Then we went outside to the open and explore ... Don't I look like a superstar when I walked ???


Saw lots of fountains with many kids playing in the waters .... unfortunately, I did not have my swimming costume with me, otherwise would have gone and join the fun ..... Daddy and Mummy said, next time they will bring me to play with water

I stopped all of a sudden ..... and guess what I saw ????



PLANE ??? SUPERMAN ??? UFOs ???? WRONG !!!! It's a KITE !!! And MANY MORE !!!!


Taking sips of water ..... and standing on a bench to have a better look at the kites ....

Daddy and Mummy wondered where I knew the words "风筝" from .... must be from 宋老师 at school .... they initially thought I was pointing to the "fountain" (in the sky????) when I said "风筝"

video

No more gai-gai (except Yew Tee Point and Lot 1 with Mummy) .... until Daddy finishes off his night shift in Jun .....

真是个怪小孩

Daddy and Mummy think I am a 怪小孩 .....

Whenever Mummy spread jam on my bread, I will just eat the crust around the bread or request for plain bread ....

Over the weekend, they confirmed their belief ..... because I actually like to eat 龟苓膏 !!!!!


Although my expression seems to suggest otherwise, I actually took quite some mouthfuls before I returned the remaining to Daddy ....

表叔 Birthday Party at Kranji Resort

Went to 表叔 Birthday Party at the Beer Garden at Kranji Resort ... originally, it was to be held at Aloha Loyang Chalets but the day before, 表叔 received a call from the PA, saying that the government is going to convert the chalets into quarantine accomodations for swine flu management ... so 表叔 had to scramble to find last minute venue .... 表叔 booked a chalet at the Kranji Resort for $288 per night ....

This is how it looks like in the day .... pretty nice place, with occasional winds blowing


The place that sells beer and other liquor ....


Selling food .... zi-char .... and the place is pretty crowded at night .... price slightly more expensive then the typical zi-char stalls, but really depends on what you order


A small fruit farm .....


Then I saw my favourite .... CARS !!!! Kept wanting to go near the cars and sit inside them


Even dragged 爷爷 with me so that he can pay for my ride .... cos 爷爷 will listen to me everytime ... ha ha

But I was supposed to have my dinner ... so Mummy refused to let me ride in the cars .... kept looking at the cars, looking so sad and refused to chew my food .... then when Mummy said, once I have finished my dinner, then I can go take a ride in the cars ... and my eyes lighted up !!!! So ate my dinner quickly ....

The ride was so expensive ... Daddy had to pay $4 for 20 mins ride .... 真是杀人放火. Daddy saw that I was so well-behaved so decided to 破例一次. 爷爷 had to follow me since the car is remote controlled .... ha ha

Dun block my way !!!! No compensation if my car runs over you .....



video

After the ride, went to explore around the place .... saw some small lanes leading to vegetable plantations ..... but too dark to explore ...

A prawn fishing place ..... and they also reared bigger prawns for consumption



When the place got really dark, then it got lively .... live music with 3 ladies singing in the middle stage .....

Stage in the daytime

Live band at night .....

Whenever there is live music, I will settle myself comfortably and enjoy the music ....

ENCORE !! ENCORE !!!


When the 3 ladies took a break from singing, Daddy decided to bring me up the stage and be a singer !!! Can pass off as a singer or not ???


Getting me to drink my milk so that I can be distracted by the live band and drink my milk quickly .... WHICH I DID !!!!








The enjoying my apple, STILL looking at the live band ... see how 夸张 my actions were .... and Mummy laughing out loud while looking at me


Time for 表叔 (Kelvin) to cut the birthday cake !!!



And my younger cousin (Remus) in the background .....


Close-up view of Remus
Daddy and Mummy said they will bring me to the place again in the daytime so that I can explore the vegetable plantation ....
