New Hairdo

 Every year... just before my birthday, I will go do my hair so I look nice nice when I take my birthday photos:)

Made an appointment to do my hair and before I went for my appointment, I thought I should take a picture of my super long hair:)


 Probably the first and last time I will have such long hair:) hahahaha

THough after I cut it off, it is still considered long.. but it felt so much lighter! ;)

 Benefits of doing hair in Orchard.. can catch Pokemon while doing hair:) hahahahaha

 Maestro at work!:)  That is the man behind all my hairstyles for the past 12 years:) And we are family lor.. cos he happen to share the same surname as me! 500 years ago, we were from one family mah!:)


 Love this photo!

I posted the end result and everyone said very nice....

But... but... but....

 This is me the next day... Sigh...

And I was thinking about how maybe I wanted to invest in a curling iron and a dear, sweet fren... who saw my picture thought of me when doing her hair at the salon and bought one for me! I swear my friend, Annie, reads minds! She even brought me to her salon so the stylist can teach me how to use it!

So leh, thereafter, I made sure I use it often :)

 First time I used it... Took me like 10 min...

And then I got better and faster:)

Now it takes me only 3 min to curl my hair:) hahaha

Pokemon Go At East Coast Park

Max says he is going East Coast Park to jog and then dinner with his friends... and I felt like tagging along... so I asked Ace if he wanted to go and catch Pokemon there. He said YES.. so I said if he finishes his work on time, we will go with daddy.. daddy go jogging, we go catch pokemon...

And then Ace started to regret!

His dad was leaving in 20 mins... He has so much time just now to finish his work but he dilly dally.. do half a sum, go find things to eat.. do another half.. shake leg, walk around the house.. Now he has another 6 story sums left...and they are difficult.. how was he going to finish them within 20 mins?

And then with 5 min left.. he started to kancheong and cry... ORH BI GOOD! Got time ask him to do homework dun want to do...

And then finally times up liao.. I told him we will go... and then sit in BK.. he continue his homework.. the later he finish, the shorter time we have to go catch Pokemon.. and he said OK...

So while he was doing homework in BK, I sat there.. go pokemon gym to fight... shake leg.. see what pokemons there are nearby... that is, when he doesnt need my help lah ;) Hahaha..


And finally, he got his work done and we started our hunt!

I was so hoping that we would find a pikachu.. but no such luck...

Saw lots of Magnemites, Voltorbs... got a sandshrew, ponyata...

And got my FIRST KOFFING:)

After watching Ace use those type of radar app, I downloaded one to use too...

And I realized that Ace is HOPELESS when he comes to maps.. he will see something and say, "MUmmy, I saw something nearby.." ANd point on the map.. but if i look at it, I will realize it is quite far:)

I thought I should teach him how to look at maps (though I am not very good at it.. hahahaha).

So when we saw something, I asked him if he knew which direction we should walk... He anyhow point to one direction.. which turned out to be the opposite.. so I taught him my way of reading the map... look at buildings or special things around you so you know where you are and which direction your map should be pointing... in this case... the sea is a good point of reference... so we know the sea is over there.. then we must be over here... so since this is on our right.. we have to turn right and walk straight...

Later when I told Max, he said that is also not the correct way to read maps.. and I agree but it is at least better than totally dunno wat the map is showing:) And since I din go army.. it is the ONLY way I know how to read maps:) Therefore I can only go pokemon hunting in places I am familiar in... hahahah...

Ace was quite happy cos we quite a fair bit of pokemons.... Too bad no rares...

Then Max called us and said he is done.. his friends decided to balek kampong and so we decided to head nearby for dinner ;)

We had indian food which was so so.. and the waitress told us they also sold very good mexican food:) hmm.. will try again...

My frozen Magharita!:)


So these are our catches for the day...

Cake Decoration At JPD Meeting

Ace went for yet another JPD meeting:)

This month, they did a cake decoration thingy.... and the SA kindly send me the photo...

I always love to see group photos that Ace is in.. cos he always gives the most hilarious expressions.. Just tat many of these expressions are not handsome cos he bends his head in awkward manner. He really needs some lessons on taking selfies...

For example.. like watching this tutorial...



Anyway, it is always great to see their happy faces at the meetings :)

Pokemon Hunting At Marina Barrage

After doing the hunting in Bedok Reservior, Ace is now excited to go PG hunting when his dad is jogging:)

Max said since Ace doesnt have school that day, let's go again...

This time round, he suggested going to Marina Barrage instead... But when we woke in the morning, it was drizzling and the sky was very dark...

We thought about it and decided to go anyway lah:)

 On our way there, we were still a little worried cos even MBS was hidden among the clouds..


 Feels like Dubai's fog when the seasons are changing..

When we reached, it ws still drizzling.. but that aint going to stop us from PG hunting:)

 Just hunt with umbrella lor:) hahahahaha..

In the end, we just walk around the barrage area where there is shelter in circles cos lots of pokestops and there were other people who put lure there..

 Saw this lazy cat lazing around...

Then we got bored of the place cos though we caught some Voltorbs (my first), there were just some tentacools and krabbies there...

I realized that the path going towards the sports hub has a lure there... and since we have to go past a bridge where the bridge has lots of pokestops, I suggested to Ace that we try to go over... cos right at the end of the bridge got a lure.. maybe there got shelter we can sit and wait at the lure...



Ace in a hurry and making his way over ....

 I was bz trying to take pic of his back view and he turned around and said, "Mummy, hurry up!"

 Finally came to the end of the bridge where the lure is... and just got a Psyduck.. sad...

 This is the "there is noting here leh" look:)

 So there is nothing here and no one here... WHO PUT THE LURE????

ANd then I suddenly noticed these two construction workers over there.... Both looking at their phones... I think they are the ones lor! orh hor.... lazing on the job... Hahahahah

 Decided to walk back to the barrage where there is shelter..


 Nt bad lah... at least caught this little man:)

Then it is time to go and eat brunch liao! Woohoo!

Fengshan CC Pokemon Lure Party

Max was bz cos someone invited him to some sort of party... but  me and Ace were still going over to Yeye and Nainai's house for dinner during the weekend. And shushu sent us this special invite and so we made a date to go together with Shushu and Shenshen...

 After dinner, we made our way to the party... check out these cute Pikachu Balloons!:)


 Ace registering...

 First Pokemon I caught there...

I realized during this party that not all lures are equal....

I have been at lures where many rare things appear....

But I must say Fengshan CC is not an ideal place for a lure party.. because... most of the things that appear are RATS and BIRDS! Very sad... hahahahaha...

We kept walking around to try to find a better place to turn the pokestops or get better pokemons...

 I must say the organizers were very thoughtful.. even their free pizza voucher is specially designed..


 There was also a movie going on and I was rather amused because most of the people seated there had their heads looking down... :) Guess there were more pokemon players than movie audiences:)

Smeone told us there is a Charmander nearby... so we walked round and round to find it!:)











 These are screen caps I got from the event's FB LIVE feed:) hehehehe..

Finally found!

 Since quite boring in the CC, we went to the gym we visited the other time and tried to fight at the gym again:)


 Then we decided to take some photos so we can take part in the contest:)




 See what I mean.. wanna take photos.. also hard to take nice ones cos all BIRDS!

Then leh, when shushu sent us home that time, we went around to see if there are other pokemons to catch again:) And then Shenshen discovered a Charmeleon and we were all so excited!

And i our excitement, we turned the wrong way.. and we were so worried we might not get it...

 So exciting when we finally found where it is and caught it! Hahahahaa....

Car park totally full lor cos so many other pple catching it too:)

Then we took the long way home... and when we alighted from Shushu's car, we realized there is a REAL LIFE SCYTHER lookalike at our lift lobby....

SHall I throw my pokeball at him?:) hahahahaha....
