Walk For Rice 2017

Walk For Rice 2017

Took part in the Walk For Rice event again today.

Each round means a donation of 4 bowls of rice to a needy family. Only walked 6 rounds as i had an appt after that. Decided to run the last 7th full round only to find my legs cramping. So i slowed down and still ran as i promised myself to do so and was so glad i finished the round and fulfilled my commitment to myself. 

It's kind of like life i guess. I am not the fastest runner and i may cramp along the way... But I will do a good run, enjoy myself and get to the finishing line; ) Jia you, Peng Yuanru!

Anyway, my sis told me later that Cay was very upset that I did not eat dinner with him after that. Last year, I did this run with Max when Ace was at tennis and afterward, our two families ate together. Being a stickler for routine, my good nephew expected that I should have joined him for dinner. LOL

As a result, he niam and niam and niam whole week to his mother about why I never eat dinner with them so we made arrangements to dinner together soon:)

Trial Robotics Class And Fun With Lele AGAIN:)

Trial Robotics Class And Fun With Lele AGAIN:)

Aunty KP told me there is a free trial for a robotics class in suntec and  since Ace was so bored during the holidays, I asked him if he wanted to give it a try. He said OK he wanted to try so I signed him up for a session and brought him there.

Basically it was some sort of trail for a "robotics class membership" where you sign up with a monthly payment and can go as many times as you like. And I guess it is something Ace has tried or done before previously..

But they basically gave them challenges to do.. only thing was that the challenges were a little too easy for ace.

But leh, though I say it seems too easy, he also did not get it on the first try..

After an hour, we were allowed to go inside so they can show us what they have done... Ace was just bz chatting with this ang moh brothers he met there... And I think they liked to talk to him because they kind of clicked. Ace felt at ease as well since it reminded him of his international school experience in HOrizon:)

So anyway, we happen to meet Lele there and so we arranged to meet up after the lesson. Alas, Lele has to finish his homework before he can play and so we waited at the foodcourt at the next table..

So happy that they could finally go to the SKy Garden in suntec to play...

They spent a long time hiding from each other in the nerf gun hide and seek.. I dunno what is so fun about just hiding though.. hahahahah

Anyway, as with any playdate with Lele.. it is ALWAYS FUN!:)

After that, his dad came to pick us and on the way home, we were discussing whether or not to sign up for the robotics class. I told him if I signed him up, he has to go like 4 times a week to make it worthwhile. And given that he was lazy to travel from home to suntec 4 times a week.. and the fact at they said he could not skip the basic classes which he felt he already knew, he said he dun wanna sign up for it. Haha.

Halloween Celebration With Lele

So Ace came to me and told me that he will like to celebrate Halloween this year because he misses Dubai and all the Halloween parties his school would hold during September term. I told him I will go find out what options we have. I figured it is no fun to go to parties like these alone and checked with Aunty KP if Lele will be interested to attend together with Ace.

We shortlisted a few and decided on the FREE party at ACM.. hahahaah:)

Next leh, is how to dress up.... I went to Daiso and bought some stuff that we can use to dress up... Mixed and matched with some of the items I already have at home...

Ace says the mask is to warm.. in the end he just wore a black tshirt:) hahahaha

It was a beautiful evening... and we were all ready to go!

Finally reached the Asian Civilizations Museum.

THere were alot of paid people who were very well dressed up there. But they were kind of creepy. When we were outside, there was this girl dressed in Qing costume. SHe will see people around and suddenly move forward and ask, "Are you my husband?" Even though she was asking someone some distance away from me.. I also got a shock lor:) hahaha

Pikachi and Ash!

Ace and Lele are very fascinated with this donation box.. you can put a coin in and see how it rolls down. THe boys decided to take out their money to put in. Coin rolled down into the hole within 2 seconds.. dam clever idea for a donation box! hahahaha

First stop we went to take a group photo...

Apparently they will make into a vernacular photo... so when you turn it slightly, the two diff pictures will take turn to appear.

We were wondering why so many pple with nice injury make up.. and realized much later that there was free make up available at level 2..

We went to level two because all the activities were there and it was people mountain people sea... the queue was 30 min long so the mothers went to queue and the boys tried to PLAY there.. I dunno how they intend to nerf gun play among the crowd.. but they tried:) hahaha

THese people really very gao gang lor!

Ace was fascinated with this write your on horror story thingy.. so he went to find a corner to write his own horror story..

It was almost our turn so I asked Ace to join the queue again and he continued drawing the cover of his story book.

 We queued up so we could make the voodoo doll keychain...

 My doll... version 1:)

 Actually we spent so much time queuing and making that by the time we were done, most things were closed:) hahaha

 Ace and his crazy antics:)

 Final version:)

 Ace dancing around when he was done.. hahaha

 Only thing left to do is outdoor viewing of he stars and planets. so we went out to take a look..

 We were lucky that because it was late already there was less lighting and so the ridges on the moon were very clear

 The boys took the chance to play nerf again

 Adults go toilet.. the kids still playing.. really must fully utilize EVERY SECOND they have together! hahahahah

 Finally all the things were closing and we sat outside... and KP said Lele has this silly string thing...and then, the boys started playing with it again!

Ace told me it is the best playdate ever.. (he always says that when he goes out with Lele.. hahaahha) because he got to celebrate halloween, make a craft and play with silly string.. which is his dream come true cos he was been wanting to buy silly string since he was in Dubai!

We almost missed the last train and did not manage to get home lor ... hahaha.. By time reach home almost 1am! Tired and shagged! But super fun! Very thankful for great sport and great company!
