Weekend with Cousins

A pic with birthday boy, Darren!

I had a weekend overwhelmed with activites. First, it was a visit from my cousins and their grandparents from Hong Kong, who were here to attend Tai Kong's 90th birthday bash. Nevermind that i've never seen my hongkong cousins before, after just one introduction, we hit it off so well it was as if we've know each other for ages! It still baffles my folks how we could communicate when they speak only cantonese and i could understand none of it!

On Saturday, Daddie and Mommie brought the whole bunch of us to the zoo but we didn't get to see many animals before the sky threatened to pour on us. We didn't even make it to the horse carriage ride which we were all so looking forward to! We refused to let the weather dampen our spirits so we entertained ourselves by running after each other and clamouring for the wagon!

Then came Sunday. We made a mad dash to toysrus to get presents for all my cousins. In just a matter of 20 mins, our shopping cart was overflowing with toys! It felt like christmas again! We had presents for everyone including my Khor cousins and Darren who turned 6. Happy Birthday Darren! I hope you like the telescope and microscope i chose for you.

And to my Hongkong cousins... "I hope you've enjoyed your stay in Singapore. See you in October!"

We absolutely love the wagon ride.

Me, Lumlum and Meimei, my cousins from Hongkong

Happy Birthday Tai Kong!

I think we share some family resemblance.

Shiver Me, Timbers!

Aye Aye Mates! This is your Captain Mighty Mouth! Today, we are going on a hunt for pirate's treasure! Get on to the deck and waste no time! Grab your tools and let's begin our adventure. .

The treasure is hidden under the spot marked with an "X".

We will get there with the help of a MAP.

When in doubt, always consult your coxswain.

So, this is what lies beneath the "X"? I must lay my hands on it. at all cost!

YOU! Get me to the treasure or risk the wrath of Captain Mighty Mouth .....Walk the Plank!

(secret note: This treasure hunt is staged by the conniving duo of Pirates Mama-Scarface and Dada-Baldeagle. It is a prelude to our movie outing "Pirates of the Carribean".

Give the Khors a Boost!

Has anyone tried the fruit juice takeaway - Boost Juice- at Vivocity? It's one of the regular places we go whenever Daddie or I need a dose of fructose.

Top on my list of favourites on their menu is the Breakie-to-gogo. It's full of wholesome goodness with a blend of tropical fruits, oatmeal, milk and honey! YUM YUM!

Yesterday, Daddie and I were back at Vivocity for a breakie-to-gogo when he started his usual grumbling about how I always monopolize the drink even though we were supposed to share. Here's an excerpt of our conversation.

Grumpy old man says "Joey, we are suppose to share the drink! Besides, I'm so big and you are so small. How can you be drinking so much more than me?"

Yours truly replies "Daddie, you are so big and I am so small. If i don't drink more, how am i going to grow big like you???"

My grumpy old man was stumped. With that, i continued to enjoy the breakie-to-gogo all by myself.. yummilicious!

Book week @ Etonhouse

I'm dressed up as Dora

Today is Book Week @ Etonhouse! For the past 2 weeks, Miss Deena has been preparing us for the book parade and helping us rehearse our song and dance item.

For the book parade, the pearls presented 4 items. First it was the "show and tell" where all of us introduced ourselves, the characters we were dressed in, and our favourite book. Then, the girls (maya, kaede, annisa, yishu, kuhoo and I) performed a short ballet routine, where we spun round and round and round and round and.................. *crashed* into each other!

After the ballet "comedy", it was Annisa's turn for a solo performance. She was going to sing "Down by the Bay", but backed out in the last minute coz she had stage fright. It was a pity as she sang really well during the final rehearsals.

Then, it was my turn to read a book out aloud to a school hall filled with parents and children. Although mommie and daddie said that i wasn't speaking out loud and was even mumbling at times, they were nevertheless, very proud of me!

The last performance item was something my friends and I enjoyed the very much. It was a chinese song and dance chorographed by 孙老师 called 拔萝卜. Ernest was the leader and he sang the song very well!

At the end of our performances, the applause from all the parents was deafening. Wow! We became STARS of the day!

Everyone is dressed up as their favorite character.There's bob the builder and little red riding hood too.

Spotted amidst the crowd - Spidey and Robin Hood?

Miss Lisa and Miss Evonne acting funny!

Ernest 种萝卜。孙老师是一个大萝卜!

That's me reading a book to the school

Princess Annisa and Me. I like her costume!

Yishu and Me, relaxing over snacks after the performances.

No Rain and More Wind, please!

Finally! After a long wait, the rain has stopped, the wind is gusting through my windows and this signals the perfect KITE FLYING day! So off we went to the empty space downstairs and flew our made in china (*no pun intended*) kite. It was so easy to fly, even i could do it by myself! The kite was very long and Daddie decided to cut it into three, so all of us could fly the kite at the same time. This is my first time flying a kite and i say that this activity is fun with a capital "F-U-N"!

So here's my wish to mother nature "No Rain and More wind, please!"

Daddie, teach me! teach me!

Ok. Let me try it myself

Look, I did it! I did it! Kite flying is really not difficult at all.

Now, let's cut the kite into 3 and we can all fly them together as a family!

Funfilled Weekend

It was an action packed Saturday last week. We started off the morning with a ride on the Duck Tours. It was actually my second time riding on this amphibian but i enjoyed this ride more coz i managed to stay awake throughout (plus, the quacker mommie bought for me was an added bonus *wink*).

The afternoon was a mad rush to the supermarket to get ingredients for our steamboat dinner. We've invited michelle, isabel, mabel and daren (and their parents) to Ah Kong's place for a cousin's gathering.

Back home, I helped mommie and Indogal prepare and wrap wantons. I gave specific instructions that the wantons i made with my sweat and blood are for Ah Kong ONLY (oh well, maybe not blood... but sweat, definately!) ! Hmm... mommie didn't seem to mind it at all. In fact, she was relieved that she didn't have to eat them. *tsk* *tsk* how unappreciative of her!

Well, 4 days have passed since Ah Kong savoured all the wantons I made for him and I haven't heard any complaints of tummyache yet.. So i guess, the wantons i made were delicious and more importantly, EDIBLE afterall!
