We went cycling at Pasir Ris Park, found this section of the park beautifully peaceful and charming. Reminded us of Yoyogi Park near Harajuku in Tokyo.
This picture (above) is clearly my favourite. Love the little girl’s smile, her posture and the bokeh behind. I was wondering how is that she learnt to cross her leg in such an manner … I was reminded later that the little girl was actually dying to get to the toilet when I took this picture
Bike parked … ready for picnic.
In an attempt to make Phyllis looks smaller
One of the rare shots taken by Phyllis that worked! Finally a shot of me with Veve!
The little girl is such a beauty … no it’s my camera … no it’s my lens … no it’s the photographer … lol … admit it, she’s so beautiful and I’m so in love with her … :)
Went by my office this afternoon to drop off the projector to make space for the 2 bikes tomorrow. On the way out, was driving by Tiong Bahru Park when Phyllis got really excited seeing “that round thing” at the playground area. So we decided to take a look and let the little girl have some fun as well.
All ready for the monkey bars …
Had to focus quick cos the little girl could not hold on any longer.
We have wanted to get her a bike for sometime now. Since her birthday is coming up, we decided to get it earlier so that she can max out the fun during her school term break.
She was thrilled! Insisting on going one round in the car park when we got home in the night. And the next day, we went to TWO parks just for her to cycle. First was Pasir Ris park, after that we headed to the Road Safety Park at East Coast.
For those of us of a “certain generation”, the East Coast Road Safety Park certainly brings back lot’s of fond memories. Well, the place is a little run down now even though it’s been updated with stuff like 7-Eleven store in the Shell petrol station. It’s open to public for free.
It’s funny how every sports day we have to be blessed with a good 10 mins shower before we can get the games going. Good thing is the rain ended fairly quickly, after it’s done soaking up the grounds and blessed our shoes with unforgivable mud.
(At least for me) The highlight of this year’s sports day is really … this little adorable boy call Chin Han. Apparently he’s been blowing kisses to Veve after school.
And here she is with her after school playground gang …
Unfortunately … when you have too much fun with such crazy weather …
Too Much Fun + Rain + Really Hot Sun = Fever for 5 days after …
Wow! We did our “first” holiday! … lol. “First” because if you define “holiday” as a time to relax, rest and pretty much do nothing, this will be the first for us. Our holidays typically involves doing way too much eating, shopping, sight seeing, that almost certainly ends up having to spend an equally long time to nurse my feet, back and wallet. :)
We went by Bali for 4 days. It was basically airport then straight to Westin @ Nusa Dua – 4 days of beach and pool, that’s it. And it was FANTASTIC! Other than suffering a really bad sunburnt after that (forgot to apply protection for day 1), everything turned out really well. Even flying on KLM for the first time turned out pretty ok.
And, yes, the little girl is already asking … “when can we go back to Bali?”
