December 2010 came and gone in a flash. Dec is always a busy month for the family – 3 birthdays of special people (Mum, Father and Hubby – all 1 to 2 days apart!) and of course, Christmas, thanksgiving and New Year.
It was so busy that I couldn’t update the blog in time before the year passed – but that’s another story by itself.
Highlights of Dec 2010:
Christmas lights at Orchard:
Our Christmas Tree at home:
Xi En’s first time in the skytrain at Changi Airport. He was a little apprehensive but otherwise enjoyed the bumpy ride!:
I know some mummies will frown at this: His first French fries from Mac’D.. and he is loving it! 🙂
Mum’s birthday celebration at home:
We celebrated Kim’s birthday a few days late as Xi En fell sick for the last few days of the year. We had a simple yet nice lunch at Toby’s at Parkway Parade. 🙂
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! 🙂
