Took lacteol fort to help in reducing diarrhea and panadol as well. Had to skip school on Monday. In the evening, my fever went away, and only had slight diarrhea.
Daddy and Mummy wondered if I am allergic to goat's milk since milk protein is different from cow's milk protein.
So no more goat's milk for me and Daddy shall finish the stock that we bought ....

Our first stop was the Hausmann Marketing Aquarium. And there are really many different species of fishes that we have not seen before.
See the albino eel
And not sure what is the name of this species .... but look like some dragon-like fish
The electric catfish !!!
And the famous Arapaima !!! Really BIG !!!
The Pacu ... big as well
The children novice fishing pond. Maybe will try that the next time when we have more time to spare
Feeding the turtles .... and see how they rushed to get the food
Feeding the koi next
Next stop was the Jurong Frog Farm. As we entered the farm, there were very nice paintings on the walls
Errr ... why do frogs need a swimming float ??? Thought even tadpoles can swim even without any aid ???
Daddy and Mummy tried to explain to me what this proverb means ... but I just catch no ball
Princess and the Frog Prince .....
Yeeks !!! I don't want to be kissed by the frog prince !!!
After visiting the Jurong Frog Farm, we went to the Fireflies Health Farm, which grows and sells organic vegetables. Yes, you got that right ... organic watermelon. Just that they are really tiny !!! Diameter about 15-20 cm at the most
Organic brinjal. Tiny as well
See how other organic vegetables are grown here ... and I can vouch they are indeed organic .... many holes on some of the leaves !!!!
My favourite 小白菜
Daddy and Mummy bought some organic vegetables home. And they are really not that expensive (unless you buy those organic vegetables that they import from overseas). For those that they grow in their farm, they are just say 20-30% more expensive (eg. a big packet of no-organic Yili 小白菜 costs about $1.40 in NTUC, while the same size organic 小白菜 cost about $2)
We moved on to our last destination, which is the Hay's Dairies (Goat Farm). Wanted so much to touch the goats .... but why don't they allow us to touch the goats now ?? They allowed that many many years back, when I was still a little toddler !!!
Goat drinking water ....
Process used to milk the goats !!!
All the milk is pumped to this container, to be further processed and sterilized
Bought some goat's milk back .... nicely packed in a styrofoam box filled with ice to ensure that the milk is chilled. Tried the chocolate flavoured goat's milk after my afternoon nap and I simply love it !!!
Guess we will visit the Fireflies and Hay Dairies more often in future

Doing the breaststroke .... or something similar ....
And finally reaching the other side of the pool, after starting and stopping for a few times to catch my breath
But the backstroke is easier ... can breathe easily
Taking a rest and a little massage
Hooray !!! I just love swimming !!!
And after about an hr of swimming in the pool, Daddy had to get me out of the water. And I ate quite a lot and pretty fast during lunch ! And slept for almost 2.5 hrs for my afternoon nap. Haha ... the beauty of swimming
And Joel and family came to our place on Saturday afternoon at about 4 pm. So the first thing that we did, was to go and change into our swimming attire and go for a swim in the pool !!! We each took a swimming float. Daddy and Mummy wanted me to show them what I have learnt in school swimming lessons (have been quite a while since they saw me swim at home).
And I must say, they were pleasantly suprised. I did not need to use the float, but could swim for a short distance, with my head inside the water.
And then backstroke / floating on the back without float as well !!! That was quite different from the last time when Daddy brought me to swim, and I insisted on using my float. And so we swam for about an hr, while all the adults were happily chatting away. Since Camille did not want to swim, Auntie Winnie brought her to the playground.
And Joel and me happily drinking our apple juice !!!
While Camille enjoying her ramen
I ate quite a lot during dinner, since the swim had exhausted me completely and made me a hungry pooh bear. After dinner, we went to the top level open air playground for some after-dinner exercise and fun. And since at the small TV room (meant for kids, Lot 1 management played kiddy videos), Power Rangers show was screening, we went to the TV room to watch the show.
Left Lot 1 at about 8+pm ..... looking forward to fun with Joel and Camille again

And we saw sand sculptures inside the shopping mall. The mall was having this event running through the school holidays.
We had lunch at 店小二, and after lunch, we went to the redemption counter to redeem for free parking, and a free pass to take photo with the sand sculptures !!!
And also free passes to have free animal rides !!! Without the free pass, each ride costs $2, which is a lot more worthwhile compared to those stationary kiddy rides (costs $2 as well). That day, I had 3 rides in total (first one with 爷爷, second time with 叔叔 and Daddy accompanied me for the third ride)
And when the ride ended, 叔叔 had to push me back to the starting point
