X’s first excursion

It was X’s first excursion at 23 months’ old. I thought I should tag along, just as what I had done for Z during his time. It was meant to be a visit to the water playground at Gardens by the Bay but the bad weather rendered it impossible.

The kids were waiting for their teachers to activate Plan B/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2014/12/img_9635.jpg


They got to make sandwich/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2014/12/img_9636.jpg

And a boat/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2014/12/img_9637.jpg

They also watched the rain… and this was X’s favourite part of the trip/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/fff/58946234/files/2014/12/img_9639.jpg

He roamed about a bit more…


Then it was time to return to school.

One interesting thing about this excursion was that many tourists tried to take pictures of the kids and the teachers had to continually ask them not to take.

But well, it was a really boring class excursion. I wished they had picked somewhere more interesting in the event of bad weather too.

Christmas Market, Gardens By the Bay


After Z’s birthday party, we had a lot of food left and my ingenious neighbour got his helper to transform some of the food to turn it into dinner. He hosted us for dinner at his place after we were done with the packing up. During dinner, we talked about the Christmas Market and presto… some of us decided to head down to take a look.

It was 915pm when we reached. The carpark was full, so we ended up parking at “Satay By the Bay” which was less packed than the main carpark.

We checked out the stalls but it did not seem particularly interesting, so once we were done with the walk (which was almost 11pm), we headed home. The kids were dead beat by then.
