Pre-holiday weekend – Part 1

The pre-holiday weekend in Singapore was utter madness. There were so many things to do in Singapore during Christmas period but the rain was not helping. It almost made me feel sorry that we would be away from Singapore for so long! One thing for sure, we would miss the Star Wars opening weekend and there were a couple of movies such as The Good Dinosaur which we had not gotten to watching.

On Friday itself, Z had to skip his wushu class for his birthday dinner with the family. We also had an impromptu visit from our relatives in KL. By the time we were done with dinner and shopping at Daiso (we had to grab vacuum bags), we got home at 1030pm.

On Saturday, Mr H brought Z to soccer class. X went along too because I had facial appointment. They had lunch and we convened at Metro. We barely made our way past 313 when it started to drizzle and my plans for my Xmas moments’ phototaking at Ion were dashed. We went to the “Christmas Market” at OC, redeemed some vouchers and popped over to OG to buy woollen socks for the kids. No thanks to our late decision, we were unable to buy the ski accessories from a local website which was also undergoing some massive relocation and could not accommodate self-collection.

I shopped at Metro alone and picked up my skincare, a swim suit, a silk quilt (20%+20%) and silk-like quilt cover (60% off). 

Thereafter, we had to rush over to catch “The Future of us” exhibition.

Getting in soon – the entrance was so near to the fairground of Xmas Wonderland that I thought we should have parked at Gardens by the Bay.

There was a second clip and we were shown this exhibit room. It showed endless possibilities of how we could use technology to create our future.

Z’s favorite section was the one showing how SCDF used technology to resolve a problem and how the soldiers secured a building.

The Future of Us – visited and checked!

I felt the exhibition was rather disappointing. Great concept but the experience was too short and abrupt.

In the evening, we attended a birthday party! 
  

The kids enjoyed running around while I enjoyed the live prata station.

Then we rushed to USS for the Xmas show and fireworks!

For Xmas, Mr H renewed our season passes so here was to more USS.  
  

I also realized we had more Xmas shows to catch!!! 

We definitely had to come back here before the holiday trip!
