29 Sep 2017 - That's a lot of medicine!

At about 5:30pm today, Jerlene called me from student care saying she's very unwell.  She was having a fever, flu, sore throat and stomach upset.  I quickly packed up my stuff in office and rushed to pick her up.  As her usual clinic was closed at that time, we brought her to another clinic nearby.  When I saw the medicine prescribed by the doctor for Jerlene, I was shocked!  There were more than 10 different kinds of medicine.  OMG!  That's a LOT of medicine!

24 Sep 2017 - Nice Dessert at Hatter Street

After our dinner at 888 Mookata at Hougang, we decided to have some dessert at Hatter Street which is just a short walk away.  We ordered a unicorn waffle for sharing while Javier, who does not like waffle, ordered a scoop of cookies and cream.  We all enjoyed the dessert.  :-)

17 Sep 2017 - Iceland Trip Summary 2017 (in "Gangnam Style")

Our Iceland Trip happened about 3 months ago and as usual, my trip videos are always delayed.  So now sit back, relax and enjoy the following video.  Turn on the volume and dance along if you want........... :-)

13 Sep 2017 - Nice Center Parting

All this while I have been complaining about Javier not combing his hair.  Today after he bathed, he ran into our room and asked:"I combed my hair today, is it nice?".  We were speechless for a moment but I must say it was a very good effort!  To give him further encouragement, I replied:"Wow....that's a nice center parting!".  :-)

10 Sep 2017 - Taekwando Continuous Kicks (无影脚)

Javier did a continuous kicks during his Taekwando class tonight.  It seemed tough for him.  :-)
Let's take a look at his "无影脚".

2 Sep 2017 - Classical Dance Studio Ballet Parent's Day 2017

Today is the annual Parent's Day for Classical Dance Studio where we were invited to the ballet class to watch Jerlene practise her ballet.  It is amazing to see how our child grows up and develops over the years.  I can still remember the adorable Jerlene when she started learning ballet more than 4 years ago.
Jerlene is currently doing her Grade 3 Ballet and let's take a look at how she performs in the following video.

2 Sep 2017 - Fun with Dogs!

Jerlene and Javier requested to visit Sun Petgamart along Seletar West Farmway to play with dogs.  They have been here for quite a few times and already made some "dog friends".
We were told that there are two big dogs at the pet mart and we went to take a look.  When we saw the dogs, we were like "OMG, they are GIGANTIC"!
There are other pets in the mart but some are not for sale, such as this cat.
Before we left the place, Jerlene and Javier helped to bath the dogs.  :-)

31 Aug 2017 - Teacher's Day Lunch

Today is Teacher's Day.  As both school and student care centre were closed, I stayed home with them.  During lunch, we went to Seletar Mall and had their favourite Vietnamese meal for lunch.

26 Aug 2017 - Parent Child Teacher Conference (PCTC) 2017

We attended PCTC with Javier and his teachers this morning.  During the conference, Javier read to us about his Rosyth experience in both English and Chinese.  He seemed quite nervous during the session which was quite unexpected.  We had all this while thought that he will be very active during lessons but teacher said he is in fact pretty quiet.  However during group activities, he does participate actively within the group.  Overall, comments from the teachers about him were generally positive.

20 Aug 2017 - Javier's Abstract Art

Javier had a school assignment to draw an abstract art.  When asked what he understands about abstract art, he said it's to draw "something" using shapes that doesn't look like it but you know exactly what it is.  He refused to show me the one that he drew for his assignment.  Instead he drew another one (below) and showed me.  If you can figure out what he drew, it means you understand abstract
When I first looked at it, I told him it looks like Hobbiton, which he did not know how it looks like till I showed him the below picture.  :-)

19 Aug 2017 - Jerlene's 1st public Chinese Orchestra Performance

Today Jerlene had a Chinese Orchestra performance at Jalan Kayu 52nd National Day Dinner.
This was Jerlene's first public performance with her school's Chinese Orchestra.  Her school's principal actually came down to support them too.
They took several group photos just before the performance.
They played a total of three songs namely <<西北雨>>, <<我的未来不是梦>> and <<Di Tanjong Katong & Rasa Sayang>>.
I've compiled a video of the performance below.

17 Aug 2017 - A fun day at Adventure Cove Waterpark

It was a school holiday for primary schools today due to PSLE Oral examination.  Since student care was closed as well, we decided to bring the kids to Adventure Cove Waterpark at Resort World Sentosa.  We were joined by our ex-neighbour and that added another level of excitement for Jerlene and Javier.
Before we even entered Adventure Cove, the kids already started to have fun at the water fountain.
And here we went.......
This was our second visit to Adventure Cove.  Though Javier had met the minimum height for most of the slides this time round, he still preferred to focus his time in the lazy river and wave pool.  We had our lunch at the Bay Restaurant.
After lunch, we continued to spend most of our time at the Wave Pool.
It started raining in the late afternoon and all the attractions had stopped operating.  We waited at Bay Restaurant for the rain to lighten before getting ourselves changed.  Our dinner was at Din Tai Feng (鼎泰丰) and what a way to end our enjoyable day!

12 Aug 2017 - Enjoying our Mookata Dinner

As there is no Taekwando class tonight, we went to Hougang Green for a Mookata dinner.  Glad that both Jerlene and Javier like it very much considering they are very choosy with the food that they eat.  I can foresee we will be having more of Mookata dinner moving forward.

9 Aug 2017 - 富贵花开庆国庆 (Happy Birthday Singapore!)


9 Aug 2017 - National Day Gathering for the kids!

After having a wonderful lunch with our ex-neighbour, Jerlene and Javier invited their friends to our house for some great fun.
They were having so much fun that they claimed today was one of the best day in a long long time.  :-)
