New Year Eve #postdated

I invited the boys to my office since I only had to work half day. My friend, who was working nearby, setup a playdate for our kids. It was an adventure for them to take the bus from Shenton Way to Suntec City. We went Polliwogs and boy, was it chaotic initially.

This was at almost 6pm when most kids had left and the boys had the entire bouncy castle to themselves./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2015/01/img_0318.jpg

X was sliding independently but he somewhat still liked to hold hands for assurance./home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2015/01/img_0295.jpg

Too compelled to leave the ‘war zone’ and took his milk next to all the action/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2015/01/img_0307.jpg

The boys played from 2-6pm. They should be very tired so I decided on dinner at Hoshino. I was surprised by the lack of queues.

X threw a tantrum at dinner because he was sooooooo tired. Z was tired too. Both boys ended up snoozing at the restaurant but Z woke up in time for the Matcha Pancake Souffle. Since he was up and about, I asked if we should still head for Gardens by the Bay. I had thought to see the Yuletide exhibit by the night. We also wanted to try the OCBC Skywalk.

We were in time to catch the Musical Light Show. It was quite magical actually.

Z was quite scared along the Skywalk though he was the one who bugged us to bring him up. With the strong winds, I had to admit that even my knees felt weak at some point.

We popped over to the Flower Dome & the Cloud Forest Dome. /home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2015/01/img_0346.jpg

It was 10pm when we left Gardens by the Bay. New Year Eve simply meant we could play late, stay up late and wake up later the next day. Z did ask about the throngs of cars and people we saw in the opposite traffic and I explained that he was too young to go. Later on, when we watched TV, he asked about the countdown program.

He was very excited about turning a year older. I was reminded of how I used to look forward to turning older too.
