Xi En is beginning to love the East Coast Park (but not the Beach!).
It’s his BIG PLAYGROUND now.
We went there last week again. It’s the first time after Xi En can “fly with eagles’ wings” – i.e. run and run very fast!
We went with a picnic mat complete with breakfast. :
Xi En ran and ran – quite far away from where we were. Now he still comes running back. In time to come – I hope he still runs back to Mummy…..
He was happy:
Actually very happy:
Decided to bring mummy’s slippers for a run too:
We tried to build a sandcastle:
That’s probably too ambitious. Only managed this:
Because Xi En still do not like the feel of sand and sea water underneath his feet:
Managed some nicer shots of with Mummy and Daddy:
We will be B.A.C.K! Wait for us – Sun, Sea and SAND!
I am probably the last person to visit Marina Barrage – and I am loving it! We were there quite late after dinner but the wind was so strong that we didn’t need much effort to fly the kite. I have never really flew a kite before – simply because the winds are never strong enough! You know.. you run for miles with the kite and the wind just doesn’t pick it up!
This is the first time I really enjoyed flying one almost effortlessly. We will be back!
My bro’s smiley kite:
Before the sky turns really dark:
The night scene:
Family photo; as usual Xi En was not in a very agreeable mood to take photos:
Thereafter we adjourn to River Ang Pow. Been years since I went down for this yearly event. But still nothing to shout about.
Love these photos:
Chinese New Year is almost over and hence I better post this before it comes belated!
This year’s CNY is more enjoyable than last year as Xi En is more mobile and can run all over the place on his own. His sleeping pattern had also reduced to 1 nap per day; thus giving us more time outside.
We had reunion dinner at my uncle’s new cluster house – as usual with many relatives. Xi En being the youngest received the most attention.
My uncle’s house was full of CNY decos – I like! Festive feel!
The many happy relatives:
Xi En and one of his uncles (my cousin!) – Jie Xin. Xi En is the only 4th generation for now.
My youngest bro and his girlfriend (my future SIL! heee… )
Trying to distract Xi En into taking a photo is always challenging!
The dinner was super sumptuous but I didn’t managed to snap a photo! This is the Lo Hei – the plates formation is just simply brilliant! Not sure who came up with the idea?
All together now! HUAT AH!
This year is also extra special as Xi En gets to spend time with my in-laws. This is the first time in many years that my in-laws are in Singapore for CNY.
The pretty lo hei prepared by my SIL:
Xi En, as usual, pushing stools all around:
Realised that we don’t have many group family photos with my in-laws and family. Must take more next time!
Till next year!
