Junpig 语录

Actually autumn is the best because the days are shorter in autumn so we don’t have to work so long

Such wisdom coming from a six year old :’D 

Kidzania Singapore

4 July was a school holiday and since I was feeling generous I took leave and brought the twins to kidzania Singapore. They had been looking forward to it since their visit to the kidzania in bangkok.

Excited boys waiting for the bus to take them to harbourfront.

Admiring my 300¥ bracelets on the bus

Got a shock when we reached kidzania. There was one single queue for everybody. Regardless of whether you are a walk-in customer or have already purchased your tickets online. So even though we already purchased our tickets we had to queue for an hour to get in. What a waste of time!

First activity – convenience store.

This was our first activity because it was near the entrance and the queue was relatively short as compared to the popular ones  (fireman, policeman, pilot etc).

Junpig doing his dream job again. His joy is genuine

Boys practically dancing with joy after collecting their first salary of the day!

Second activity – board the tour bus!

This was a no-waiting activity. The tour bus was actually waiting for more participants before it can move off!

Third activity – bak kwa

Boys looking pretty legit with the cap

In full concentration

Happy to receive the generous salary.. hee hee..

Fourth activity – learning lab 

We persevered with our strategy to join the shortest queue. So the next one was to enrol them in some learning activity. The module they took was about budgeting and stuff. 

While waiting for them I couldn’t help but oooh and a aah over these cute little cleaners washing the windows outside 

Fifth activity – bank vault

We chose this activity because it’s one of the jobs that gave us higher salary now that we owned  a “university degree”

Boys looking very lost.

Sixth activity – peranakan museum 

Only junpig participated because mupig was not keen on the extra earnings.. he wanted to make burgers..

Seventh activity  - burger making 

Mupig was very excited after he made his burger. He said “I made the best burger in the universe!”

Junpig joined the queue when mupig was feasting on his burger. After junpig completed his activity I asked if he made the best burger in the universe and he replied humbly “no lah.. mine is just the best in kidzania lah.. ”

One wefie before we left sentosa.. notice someone’s sad face

Overall I am not keen to go back to kidzania Singapore.  It is expensive,  feels small (compared to bangkok),  and is too crowded. 

If you die die have to bring your kids there,  I would advise bringing along your own water, bread or some snacks because the queues at food outlets can get crazy during mealtimes. Also,  queue for the food activities like soup,  pizza,  burger during off-peak hours like 11am and 3pm.

Kiki sees sushi for the first time and says excitedly “Papa! Gimme cake! I want a cake Papa!”

Then she starts singing “happy birthday to you” loudly :’D 

Kiki’s 4d3n staycation at kkh

It was the eve of vesak day (20 May) and I took leave because the childcare centre was closed. Kiki woke up normally but her right eyelids turned slightly reddish by lunch time. When I brought her to the doctor after lunch she was already having a fever. 

The swelling worsened the next day so we brought her to A&E (as advised by the doctor who saw her one day ago). She was admitted immediately for further treatment.

The ward doctors put her on antibiotics administered intravenously but the fever and swelling did not subside..

In fact, the swelling was at its worst the day after they increased the antibiotics dosage.

When the swelling finally subsided a bit, the bruise darkened to a dark pinkish red patch..

She was finally discharged on Tuesday 24 May.. after spending 4 days in the hospital.. 

It’s only 19 June and I am on leave again because kiki woke up with a swollen left eye today and is starting to develope a low fever.. #FML
I hope she doesn’t end up in hospital again.

Mupig + Junpig 语录

Cj: mummy will buy you the latest gundam toy on 31st June ok?
Junpig: but there is no 31st June!
Mupig: I don’t wanna wait until 31st July!

Hmmm.. one points out my obvious “mistake” to me and the other one just pretends that I meant to buy him the toy in July..

overall, it was a great staycation! although it’s already our fourth time here, the kids were not bored with the activities because this time round it was “The Great American Vacation” and there were lots of free activities for the young. not to mention the free popcorn and cotton candy!

Ruopig 语录 papa penis!

Baby kiki is finally old enough to have her own 语录 debut.. so why not start with something scandalous?
This evening she kept repeating “Papa penis! Papa penis!” after her bedtime milk feed..
It turned out that she was trying to tell fat X she had FINISHED the milk and was passing the empty bottle back to him  :’D
