We woke up about 8 plus as the excited kids kept asking to swim.. We locked the door the previous night, expecting this actually.. Haha.. We went for our breakfast first at Roselle Cafe.. The spread was not bad, the … Continue reading →
We knew there would be a jam on the causeway as it’s a super long weekend.. Initially, we planned to leave very early to beat the jam but it was probably a good thing we took our time as I’ve read about others taking more than 6h to clear the customs despite leaving very early..
It wasn’t intentional.. Hubby was not well yesterday after work so he was not in the form to pack his luggage.. We only finished packing this morning..
Took a cab to meet up with my sis and family before we had our brunch at the Mac at Trade Hub.. By the time we cleared the Tuas Checkpoint, it was about 1pm.. And by the time we cleared the Malaysian customs, it was 5.30pm! 😓
After that, we made 2 stops to top up the fuel tank and have our dinner..
We finally reached the resort at about 11pm!
We’re ready to rest for now.. We only have one day to play tomorrow!
We had a full day of celebration in school today, not the usual half day like in previous years. The reason given was that since we have an additional public holiday tomorrow, we should make use of today to carry out the activities related to the Lego sets given to the pupils..
Had to conduct the lessons with my own class so didn’t go and kpo what my boy did.. Thankfully, the parents in the class groupchat took and shared some photos..
I think all the kids had a great time building the different structures and some even created structures based on their own creativity!
Now my 2 kids are still busy exploring the Lego sets!
My boy took part in his first sports carnival in our school yesterday. It’s the first time the lower primary pupils were involved in the sports carnival.. We usually involved only the P4-P6 pupils in the sports carnival while the P1-P3 pupils would have their lower primary sports day on the day of the national day celebration..
I guess the school made changes to their plans cos of the SG50 jubilee celebrations..
Anyway, I’m glad he could join me.. The school puts the child in the same house as the parent to encourage people of the same family to fight for the common goal.. I find it very reasonable, don’t you think?
Look at my excited boy!
One disadvantage of him being involved, however, was that I couldn’t take any photos of him in action as I also had a game station to man.. However, I still tried to steal some time to find him so I could take some photos…
Our Blue Rhino house was third in position so my darling boy asked if he could join the champion house, Green Viper.. 😓
Gave him a little talk about loyalty to help him understand that he had to put in effort to make his house the champion house and not just keep changing our house in order to be in a champion house!
We got the tickets from Jocelle’s ccc since we won’t be around during the nation’s birthday.. Thought it’ll be good for the kids to watch the aerial display as well as the fireworks.. Went with my BIL and niece, all decked in red and white.. Ellysa was in pink though.. Haha.. Em said she couldn’t find any red top for her..
We decided to drive as we were worried about the way back.. Met up at Marina before we walked over..
Group photo before we head to the floating platform
The queue was long and disorganized.. It was also very slow moving.. Finally got in only after 6pm so we missed the Red Lions.. 😓
The aerial display was impressive! My favourite segment!
Didn’t take any photos of the fireworks cos I just wanted to enjoy watching the display.. Long and beautiful display but I kept wondering how much money was burnt during the display.. 😁 The kids were definitely impressed even though our view was blocked by some big trees.. The sound system was definitely real time and authentic! 😉
The kids had a great time dancing during the after show concert..
Look at Elly dancing..
The kids didn’t want to leave as they were having such a good time.. Haha.. We went for dinner at Sakae Sushi before we headed home.. Think it was about 11plus when we reached home..
I’m not sure if the kids are aware of what patriotism means but from the way they recited the pledge and sang the national anthem with pride, I guess NE in school has been effective so far? Anyway, Happy Birthday in advance, Singapore!! ❤️❤️
