Wedding + Zoological weekend 

This was X’s first church wedding. 

En route to the church wedding   

X had been really excited about going out with me. However, his excitement sizzled when the quietness and solemn environment of the church overwhelmed him. He was also uncomfortable with the attention levied on him. 

X actually said he was scared and wanted to go home. When he got very restless, I brought him for a walk.

He saw the cake and wanted to eat it.

“Mummy, I want to eat this.”  

I had to persuade him that he was to attend the full version wedding party before he could eat the cake. He reluctantly headed back to the ceremony. He was so restless that he played with the wedding favor, dropped and broke it! 😱

In the end, I had to sponsor him 15 minutes of YouTube to get through the last stretch. 

Lesson learned: Never bring my toddler to a church wedding 

We watched “Tomorrowland” in the afternoon and headed to town for dinner. The boys had to sleep early for their near-quarterly zoo visit.

Spotted a crocodile 


And the white tiger doing its morning exercise again   

We were posing with the otters which had long left the scene

At the koala sanctuary   

Waiting for the Splash Safari show to start, and also hiding from the heavy downpour 

Sleeping lions which had newly moved to our zoo  

We got to see a baby giraffe!

Which really wasn’t that much of a baby size  

The entourage with the giraffes 

There were 3 adult giraffes and 1 baby giraffe. The kids said the 3 adults represented the mom, the dad and the helper. 👀

Being fascinated with the moving stripes   

We chanced upon a new exhibit – African Painted Dogs 

We also saw the polar bear nap 
We left the zoo by 1pm and headed to Italian Osteria  

We also swung by East Coast Park again for the boys to scoot before returning home for them to swim.  

We had to thank our blessing of good weather and friends for an awesome weekend. #nohaze

Page boy for a day

More than a month ago, we celebrated the matrimony of a close friend. Z was invited to be a page boy and he was groomed handsomely for the role. He received a spiffy outfit from the couple and we made sure he had a good haircut.



I reckoned he was quite pleased with himself. When the flower girl froze on the spot, we got him to hold her hand and walk together. It was such a sweet sight.

Maybe in 20 years’ time, I would get to see him walk down the aisle with his bride.
