Bubbly Bubbles @ City Square Mall

Xi En loves bubbles. Just like any other young kids, he enjoys “catching” bubbles.

So we decided to bring him to City Square Mall where there is a “Magical World of Bubbles” at selected timings.


It turned out to be an eco-friendly Santa with a bubble machine.

I had expected Mr Santa to move or at least “say” something or play some music. Ermm.. but it didn’t! There were just lots of bubbles churned out from a machine in front of Santa. Oh well.. at least it entertained the kids.

Xi En loved the bubbles too…… until there were too much of them! We had to keep sweeping bubbles off his head, eyelashes, face, mouth!

In the end, we decided to venture indoors to escape from the overwhelming bubbles!


Kim and I entertaining ourselves silly until we got told off by the salespeople that no photography allowed! oopps…:P

After dinner, we discovered a fountain with lights near MacDonald’s. It is similar to the one at Bugis. 2 totally undeterred kids were having a good time getting wet!

As for Xi En, I think the lights/high water were too daunting for him. That’s as close as he dared to go:

It was good just to get out of the house. We were running out of ideas where/how to entertain this little-energetic-just-learnt-how-to-walk toddler. Definitely coming back to give the fountain another try when Xi En is older! 🙂

Our story in Motherhood Magazine – Dec 2010 Issue

During our long drawn moments at the hospital 1+ year back, while our little boy was yet unborn, Kim and I kept encouraging ourselves that Xi En will be A Miracle and he will live to tell the story. It was pretty much what kept us going day by day, hour by hour, min by min, sec by sec. Of course, being totally human, in our darkest moments, we had fear the worst before.


However, God proved to be real and so real in our lives. Our little boy was born miraculously and survived his birth journey for us to share his story with Melissa Especkerman, a writer for Motherhood Magazine.


Melissa read my pregnancy story on this blog and wrote the following article. This is probably a good summary of my pregnancy-cum-birth story till date. One of Xi En earlier photos in the incubator was featured too. Certainly hope that this article will go a long way to bring HOPE to others in similar situations. 🙂

Happy reading. 🙂

And he walk and he walk and he walk!

Xi En finally started walking independently! Although he is still a little wobbly, he is doing very well! 🙂

He kind of just gained enough confidence and balance and started pacing around the house a few days back!


He is very happy with his new-found freedom too! 🙂 🙂
