4 Cheese Pizza@ Siglap

Ace doesn't usually like pizza...

All of a sudden, he says he wants to eat pizza... then wat to do leh... 

His dad suggested we go eat at this place where he discovered decent 4 cheese pizza....


It is a place he goes drinking often in Siglap called Malt House....

I tried the Pear and Lychee cider.. very nice and not too sweet... I like!:)

Ace loved this so much we ordered two portions:) LOL

And got free wifi.. so someone super happy...

4 cheese pizza is not too bad too:)



Then on our way home... saw thise pinkish sky.... was a common sight in Dubai though not too common here...  Made me sort of miss Dubai...

Ping Pong Tournament Again

It has been a while since the Ping Pong table thingy at Nainai's house.. Somehow, Ace found it while packing his room and his interest in that was rekindled...

He said he wanted to bring to Nainai house and play again...

And so... presenting to you..

World's Left Handed Dining Table Tennis Tourament cos well.. playing with your strong hand is well, in Ace's words, "Just too mainstream..."

CNY 2017 Lunch For LB Seniors At Ziyean Restaurant

It is our usual tradition to help out and serve the seniors lunch when the lady boss of Ziyean Restaurant hosts 10 tables at her restaurant for our seniors who are registered with Lions Befrienders.

But in the last two years, because Ace always has swimming on Saturday morning, we are sometimes unable to make it for the event.

This year, we will be having club meeting after that and so we tried to rush down.. just for the club meeting.. Lucky for us, the lunch was still going on and we could help out with little things here and there and Ace made himself useful carrying boxes and stuff..












 Since everyone else bz serving.. Ace was tasked with most impt thing..

Helping to present oranges to the generous lady boss of Zi Yean..

And she was soooooo impressed that Ace is vegetarian.. and that he is so young and involved in Lionism ;) hahaha... Actually he do nothing much also... hahahaha

 So anyway.. special mushroom bun for the boy and we also get to enjoy becos of him!:)

Look like real mushroom lor.. I am so impressed... and very glad I got to watch the chef prepare this on TV much later... cos I kept thinking how they made the surface like tat...



 We invited this Evergreen Strummers who volunteered to perform at the event for lunch with us:) Lou hei.. huat ah!


 Thanks to Ace, the vegetarians got extra good food lor:) hahahhaa....

Anyway, glad to see the seniors all happy and all smiles lah.. Since I not needed to serve.. I make myself "byakuren" and wave big big, smile big big.. and wish them happy new year, say goodbye and thank them for coming when they were going home ;)

I feel always warm in the heart when I go SSA events and the byakuren ask us to be careful.. and thank us for coming.. so I hope my smiles and warmth can do the same for the seniors...

And they followed some patients in the dementia ward in the community hospital Laoma was staying in before she passed on... Familiar nurses.. familiar rooms... they even filmed near the bed where she stayed.

Made me miss her very much...

Guitar

Ace's super strict guitar teacher from France left... and so he now has a new teacher, Mr Tan.

Looks like Mr Tan means business... since we changed over to him for lessons, he has been finding out what are  the basics that Ace is lacking in and making me buy lots of new books for Ace to practice this and that in:) Hahahaha...

He made me buy this kiddish book and explained to Ace that it was actually to make his foundation even better and stronger and when he finished all the songs inside, he had a test and he was so happy that he passed.

I havent heard Ace doing his guitar thing for a long time cos he refused to let me do video... But leh, his teacher is thinking of letting him take the in school exam in Sept this year and even envisioning that he can do so well that he can perform at the recital!

Anyway, I can see Ace making more effort now and when I asked him what he thinks of Mr Tan, he said he like Mr Tan better than Mr P cos though he is strict.. he is also very funny.. Mr Phillip always "jit teh bin" one...  hahahhahhah...

Good lah.. he has been learning since 2013.... Mr Lucas and Mr Malangar is hopefully happy to see him moving forward...

Father And Son Gaming

 Max is not much of a gamer... but just to understand the games that Ace is playing... he asked Ace to teach him his latest fav game--  Critical Ops...

Apparently it is some shoot the terrorist.. or be the terrorist type of game...


 That is Ace teaching his dad how to hide and shoot..


Ace had fun playing with his dad actually...

But leh, the downside of it is that about a week after Max played with this game, he decided that this game is too violent for Ace and deleted it off his phone:) LOL ;)

So how Ace is always happy to go nainai house or popo house... because he also downloaded this game in their tablets:) LOL...

I also dun like him to play too many violent games.. I notice he speaks more roughly and behaves more aggressively when he plays too much of such games.

Anyway, Max did a run through of all his games and deleted most of Ace's games.. left only a few that he really likes tat are non violent like Pokemon Go, Clash Royale... and changed the password so that he cannot download new games to play unless he gets permission from us.

I am not much of a gamer and only play one or two games.... My current two are Candy Crush and Tsum Tsum:) But well, I try to accompany Ace when he watches the Clash Royale cartoon...

Speaking of which... my son has now developed an appetite for anime...

It started with him watching an anime a tuition classmate recommended and after he finished the series, he went on to search for others to watch.. he is currently watching Sword Art Online. Tsk tsk tsk... weekdays wake him so hard... weekends can sleep dun want to sleep... wake early to watch anime... lol...

PS:  He found out the Sword Art Online movie is in the theatres and asked if I could bring him. I suggested that he jio shushu go watch lah.. cos at least two pple who appreciate it mah:)

PPS: Best Yee Zhang in the world probably also tried to play game with his son.. cos he read storybook for Cay and I think Ace will be upset if Cay is given attention and he isnt given any by his own dad:)



That Cay also very funny lor...

Ah Yee bought a Ye Wen 3 movie DVD and Max, her and nett nett all wanted to watch. So when they wanted to play it.. Cay niam niam niam cos he wanted to us to watch Lion Men with him (and we already watched like 3 times with him previously liao)...

And he grumbled and grumbled throughout the movie, went into a tantrum (though I just chatted with him and told him if he wants something.. he should tell us instead of go into a tantrum..) and he finally got somewhat interested in the movie when he saw the kungfu parts..


Following week.. he asked me when is Yee Zhang coming... and when I said Yee Zhang not coming over.. he askd me then who going to watch kungfu show with him! Hahahaahaha.... We dun want to watch liao he want us to watch again with him lor!

Attending a wedding and Ace is invited too ;)

My friends Zenee and Sim Cik were getting married... And because we visited their cafe as a family and they also got to know Max and Ace better, they were both invited too:) Ace was so looking forward to playing with W, SC's son....


 Once they saw each other, the two boys sat down and played games with each other... Mobile games:) hahahaha...
