Pom Pom Girl

Audrene's sports day was this morning. Sangat2 seronok esp because her cheerleading team was THE BEST among the rest of the centres.. At least that's what me and the teacher thought.. hehe :p Hey, she practiced her routine and her cheer for weeks and I had to practice with her too. It was so much fun. The kids were so cute. I like it that the sports day was simple and fun and it finished off right on the dot as scheduled before it started getting so hot. Nicely organised lah!

Here are some photos from this morning.

While having lunch... Maira made faces at Daddy :p

After sports day, we hung out at the curve and had early lunch there. Then went back home to make sure the girls had a good sleep because we were going to watch Toy Story in the evening. And, sob, I cried while watching the movie. The end of the movie was so sad :( But I still love the movie of cos, plus it was 3D.

Ok, folks, goodnite. Wanna check on Audrene. She has overworked herself today and is not feeling very well. She doesnt eat enough and lives on milk. I am worried and running out of ideas on how to entice her to eat... sigh.. Right now she's addicted to burger king's spicy drummets and she has them every weekday for dinner. But that's it. She wont take any carbs with them and she'll have milk instead. Probably I shld show her pics of African children. Mebbe that would make her eat.

Alright, goodnite!

Princess Dresses

Attention all mommies with lil princesses!

Mothercare has really pretty princess costumes and they are all on 20% discount now. Went to the curve with Audrene today with the intention to get her new trainers for her sports day tomorrow but instead we came back with Snow White/Cinderella costume (it's reversible! 2-in-1) and a fairy skirt! And they are so cute...simply irresistible!

All of the little girls at the store were pestering their mommies.. ada yang kata nak pakai baju Snow White for Raya... hehe...cute!! Well.. siapa tak nak jadi princess kan? :)

Here's Audrene in her new dress. Maira's sleeping so she hasn't seen the dress yet. Last month Audrene bought her Ariel costume and Maira was so upset cos she didnt get one. Tak ada size! But today, I bought her 2 cute lil skirts so I hope she'll be happy too.

So go NOW mommies... Not many are left. There're also Tinkerbell, little hornet, fairy, Ariel costumes. For lil boys, there are Ben 10, Woody (Toy Story)... mmmm ada lagi but tak ingat. Go go go and we can all throw a costume party!

Have fun and have a great weekend!

Audrene's New Friends

Wanna meet Audrene's new friends?!


Here they are... Meet Alisa and Arina the hamsters :p

Audrene has been pestering me for these lil rodents for WEEKS and I finally caved in. But I had a looong chat with her about the many responsibilities before I finally took her to the pet store. Told her she's the mummy to the hamsters so she will have to take care of them. I am curious to see how these lil cuties will change my lil darlings. Should be good to them so hopefully the hamsters will last long.. hehe

Btw, are any of you Red's listeners? If you are and you happen to be driving to work at abt 820 every day, you may be familiar with the RM1k minute quiz. Aaaaargghhhh... geram!!!! How come so far none of the quiz contestants can finish this line... Rock a bye baby ... ON THE TREE TOP?!! Gerammm!!! So easy!! Easy peasy!! And a couple of week's back it was HUMPTY DUMPTY who went up the hill to fetch a pail of water... OMG!!! Cant stand!!! If you havent heard abt this quiz, do tune on to the station at 810 cos the quiz is usually at abt 820 and then you'll understand my agony every morning. Its 104.9.

Ok, peeps, goodnite. Need to teman the girls to bed.

p.s. weekend's near... hurrah!

Univ Studios Singapore Rocks!!!!

Oh yes it rocks and I wish I am still there!!!!

I had so much fun these past few days but it's still great to be back home. Penat ok jalan with a toddler in tow but without the lil munchkin it won't be as much fun :)

School holiday started yesterday but we decided to go off early so on Thursday we packed our bags and flew to Singapore with 3 locations as our main target - Universal Studios, Night Safari and Arab St for beryani and murtabak. And ooooh to add to the kids' joy, the grannies and aunty followed too!

We spent the first day at the Night Safari. We went there last year and were still impressed with the place. I love it there because it is full of life. And of course, tak panas ;) This time around, we got there early, at abt 6.45pm (the safari opens at 7pm). Had dinner (their lamb burger is the best!) and watched the fire show. Memang grand! After the show, we watched the creatures of the night show and then we hopped on the tram and went for the safari tour. I really like the safari. I dont mind going there again and again. Audrene and Maira enjoyed the place too. Maira was already sleepy during the tour but she still waved at the animals happily.

On the second day, we went to Universal Studios!!! We love loved LOVED the place. We were so lucky it didnt rain and the weather was extremely sunny. The crowd was huge. In fact, the tickets were sold out on that day and it was not even the weekend and Singapore hasnt even started their school hols. For popular rides like Jurassic Park's water rapid, we had to que up for 45 minutes. And it took us more than 30 minutes to buy food. But nevertheless, it was worth the que. The rides were fantastic. We managed to ride on almost all rides. Ermmmm I didnt ride on the scary rides of course but my sister and hubby did go on the Mummy roller coaster and Audrene was also brave enough to go on the Dragon ride at Far Far Away - twice!

Took lotsa photos, here are some of them... Enjoy!

At the main entrance.

At the Jurassic Park with a baby dino :)

In Egypt for The Mummy

Battlestar Gallactica.. there was only 1 ride here for the kids. The huge scary coaster is not open yet (phew!)

With Betty Boop in Hollywood

In the streets of Hollywood, with NY in the 50s at the back.

In Madagascar!

In Far Far Away.. Audrene and Daddy riding on the dragon roller coaster.

With Donkey

Some tips in case you are planning to go there during this scool hols..

1. Buy your tickets earlier at the travel agents in Spore cos the tickets may be sold out at the entrance. You may even get it cheaper at the agency. We bought ours for $62 each instead of $66 (weekday rate. Weekend pass is $72). Cheaper rates for kids between 4-12 and free for 3 and below.

2. Wear your sunscreen cos it can be very hot and sunny there.

3. Wear very comfortable clothes and shoes esp those which can dry fast cos you may get drenched during the water rapid ride at Jurassic Park and while watching the Water Wold show.

4. Be there early so you can enter sharp at 10am cos with the long que, you may need to rush to cover all rides. The park closes at 7pm, takut tak sempat!

5. Prices for food and merchandise are reasonable. Chicken rice is S8, a bottle of snapple is $3.50, tshirts are $20-30, mugs are about $12 - 15, depends on the design. Lotsa a nice cafes but too little time to enjoy food cos need to rush to catch the rides and shows.

6. Rides with long ques are all the 3 rides in Jurassic Park (45 minutes que per ride) and the jeep ride at The Mummy. You may want to rush to these rides the first thing in the morning to avoid the long que later.

7. Washrooms are squeaky clean with areas for diaper change.

My fav ride is the studio tour by Spielberg. Fantastic! And altho I was terrified, I loved the river rapid ride. Huaaaaaa I wish I am still there! Mebbe next year when Maira's bigger and Audrene's taller? :p

Have a good school break everyone, and Happy Sunday!
