Chanting With Ace

 So it is exam period and Ace got more serious about chanting. As a show of support, I told Ace I will chant together with him whenever he wants to chant.

So he was all serious and solemn and even said he wanted to do gongyo...

Then he started preparing everything. He says must light candles, incense, fill the cup with water... etc...

 Then as I was chanting, I noticed that the cups seems to be sweating water droplets.

After we are done, I asked Ace if he put ice into the cup.

Ace: Ya, I want to drink cold water mah. The water got blessing from Gohonzon.
Me: Dun drink direct from the cup hor
Ace: Why cannot...
Me: Why can? Pour into your drinking cup lah...
Ace: Because I always drink direct from the cup at Popo's house mah
Me: Ok lah ok lah.... wash clean ah..
Ace: Ok

PoGo Hunting For Machops At Kallang Riverside Park

I was getting close to completing my pokedex and because there was some sort of special event going on, there is a chance I could catch less of the same pokemons and evolve them into their evolved version to fill my pokedex.

I found out that one pokemon I am short of can be found at Kallang Riverside Park.

Kallang what? I have never heard of that place before!  Turned out it is at the old gasworks place.

I think and thought... and decided I will make a trip there when Ace is in school.

As with all outdoor PG hunting, I prepared, ice water, umbrella, power bank and made my way there!:)

while on the way there, one of my eggs hatched into a Snorlax! Good omen! Woohoo!


I took an MRT over to Kallang and used Google maps to navigate my way to the park... Thanks to may other helpful trainers, who shared how to get there... I was able to find my way there...

As I walked over, I saw lovely morning glory!



It was a pretty short stretch of a park... I realized I was opposite National stadium and saw many dragon boaters having training..

Saw also this beautiful and interesting tree..

There were quite a few people who were here to farm too.. I was a little disappointed that after arriving for 20 min, I only caught ONE machop and one uncle who saw me chatted with me and encouraged me to continue cos he said he caught 7 already in one hour... so I persevered:)

When I walked to the other end of the park.. a beautiful sight awaited me...

So pretty!




While waiting for pokemons to appear, watch the dragon boaters do their training...


I love this tree.. will make good picture location for wedding portrait I think:)

THen after some time, I got tired and sat down at one of the booths. There was another uncle there and we started chatting about pokemon, about kids... and he even taught me a trick or two about how and where to catch pokemon.. haha

He said he has never visited so many parks in SIngapore before Pokemon Go.. to be honest, ME TOO:) hahahaha.. I never knew there were so many beautiful places in Singapore:)

Saw this dunno wat type of boat .... anyone knows?


ANway, not bad lah.. after two hours there and braving the rain with my umbrella, I caught enough to evolve and decided to go home as the sky was turning dark...


These leaves are so pretty.. ;)

Ok one last catch before heading home...

THese are some of the plants I saw when I was on the wya back to the MRT station..

So pretty hor..



Finally reached Bedok and decided to go buy some ice cream with my expiring vouchers to pamper myself.. yumz!:)

What a day!

PS: The next few days, I decided to embark on another journey.. walked from Big Splash all the way to the Bougainvillea Garden in East Coast Park and back and forth... so  could hatch egg and farm for the pokemons I needed...

Croak! Croak!


Since his dad was away, I lazy to cook dinner lah. So I told Ace we will eat his favourite Mac D for dinner.

He said he wanted the mask.. so I bought a Kids meal and a veggie crunch burger for him so I could eat nuggets.

 And that was how he ate his dinner... hahahaha


Looks like he doing some advertisement for the veggie crunch burger... I tried it.. it is not too bad. Actually tasted better than the Dubai Vegetarian burger:)

After dinner, I asked Ace if he would like to go over to Bedok Reservoir to walk walk with me... and go catch some pokemons or spin pokestops along the way and he said ok.

It had been raining and the floor was quite wet. When we reached, we heard this... and I felt Ace grip my arm tightly...

Sentosa RWS Staycation- Day 2

Day 2, Ace woke super early and said he wanted to go Pokemon hunting.. so I went with him lor..

But hor, it started raining... VERY HEAVILY....

Everywhere flooded and I was set and so were my shoes.. so we decided to go back...

Halfway back, we saw a Gyradoes in sightings.. But we went one more round and still cannot find it... sigh...

So back to our room we go..

Then Ace used some map to find and found that the Gyrados was at the skytower..

I remember I could see that from our room but it is so near yet so far.. anyway, we decided to go back to our room lah...

Time to go for breakfast... Went out again with Max to find food...

Walked past Bali Thai and Ace says this place brings back happy memories of when LY invited him to a birthday party and they had dinner here afterwards...

Walk here and there cannot find anything we like and finally settled on HK cafe...

That sold FRIED DURIAN! DUn dare to order...

I ordered beef brisket noodles..

Ace ordered toast with ice cream and his favorite...

Chee Cheong Fun!

Max ordered wanton soup... I eat wanton, he eat noodle and soup:) hahahaha

Then time to go back to the hotel...  Walked past the lego shop again and Ace says must dunno collect what shield or wat..


STill got time so father and son lie on bed.. and dunno for wat reason started a BLANKET FIGHT... hahaha






Then time to check out.. while Max was checking out.. Ace was bz bottle flipping at the hotel lobby...


Wanted to go swim in the morning actually.. too bad it is rainingy...

Anyway, time to say goodbye to RWS...

Saw this top at the Hard ROck shop.. looks like those DENG TAI sort of outfit.. hahaa

Then while thinking about where to go next, Ace said he wanted to go to Vivo to catch Dratini... so Max said ok..

We went there and walked around here and there again and again.. Actually Max was super bored but he went along with it..

WHile Ace looking at toys, we selfie while waiting for him lah.. hahaha


Wah... we have the same type of toy but it only costs a fraction of this one in Star Wars design...


Ace says he likes this particular pokemon.. so cute hor:)


While Ace looked at toys, Max kills time by feeling the minifigures set for Banana man:)

Then we decided to go Toys R Us... and guess what Ace found in the gun section...




Wonder who left it there...

Found also the world's MOST EXPENSIVE RUBBER BALL!

Very tired liao... decided to go back to rest... :)

Many thanks to Wendeline for giving us this wonderful staycation chance:)
