Our Hong Kong Vacation from 26 to 30 Jan 2013

It’s a very belated post as we have been back from Hong Kong for almost a month now, busy with CNY Preparations and CNY visitings during this two weeks. I have done a quick summary on our huge family vacation below. Be warn that it’s gonna be a pictures heavy post! 🙂

It’s all about eating and shopping!

Travel period: 26 Jan to 30 Jan 2013 (5 days 4 nights)

People present: Me, Hubby, KD, my Father, my Mother, my Father-in-law and my Mother-in-law! I was 27 weeks plus pregnant when I departed Singapore and 28 weeks plus when I came back. We have a super active 3+ year old boy (KD) and our parents are in late 50’s to early 60’s! So basically the only fittest person in this group is my Hubby! Haha!

Travel by: Tiger Airways, on NTUC Union Promotion at only SGD205 nett per pax, all in (with big & heavy luggage option for everyone!). *grins*

Accomodation: Cityview Hotel at Yau Ma Tei, 1 minute away from the Yau Ma Tei MTR and less than 5 minutes walk to Ladies Market

An Unofficial Maternity Photo Shoot

On 23 Dec 2012, instead of the usual three of us (me, hubby and KD), we went for a big family photo shoot with Lumiere Photography, with my parents and sister. I was only 22 weeks pregnant then and never expected the photographer to include some really nice maternity shots in between the whole photo shoot duration! And ya, the tummy was already showing then and probably it’s because it’s 2nd pregnancy that it was bigger than i was 22 weeks pregnant with KD..

So, initially i still wanted to go for a proper and nice maternity photo shoot when i am in my 30+ weeks (which is like now already…)… because the tummy will be huge and beautiful.. but i doubt the rest of me looks beautiful cos i am very bloated every where with limited clothes to wear now… do you think i should still spend that kinda money when i have theses very beautiful pictures already? Sigh.. in dilema over whether should i go for a maternity photo shoot now…

Fun with Tots Series @ Public Library

 

Yesterday while at the library, we chanced across this brochure below and i feel it’s too interesting that i must share!

Fun with Tots Series @ Public Library. Apparently, it’s available in many libraries. It’s a total of 6 fun filled sessions to engage a parent and child in helping us to introduce our little ones to 6 early literacy skills! Every session is only limited to 20 pairs only. And is recommended for toddlers aged 1 to 3 years old. It only costs SGD2 per session for a pair of parent and child. A token will be given if you registered for all 6 sessions.. but Alas!! I saw this too late and there is only the last session available for the library near to our home… 😦 .

If you are interested, please do go to this link quickly to check and register if there are any available in a library near by your home. 🙂

 

Let’s read books!

I brought Kyle to the library after his class today. 🙂

Instead of borrowing books, today we sat down and I read to him right there! Am amazed he managed to sit through 3 books today! Usually I can’t even finished one before he ran away. 

The three interesting books we read today are

This great house hunt has alot of pictures and no paragraphs of words but is like a comic strip.  So instead of me telling Kyle the story, he told it to me instead through his eyes!

I am enjoying this kinda life while I can cos when number two arrives, I really dunno how I can bring Kyle to the library any more!

A visit to the Universal Studios Singapore

Hmm.. a little wasted because there are so many rides that I couldn’t take at all, including the 3d shrek movie actually! But I took it anyway and yeah, the motion seats are a lil rough.. if you are a expectant like me, better postpone the trip to USS to another year after delivery.  🙂

With this, we end our 3d2n staycation at RWS and tomorrow is the actual start of our brand new year – hubby returning to work and KD starting his first day of nursery education at little wings. 

Happy 2013 everyone!

A visit to the S.E.A Aquarium @ Resort World Sentosa

Before I start, this is one place I highly recommend for your family to come! Yes, there are still some fishes missing. But the experience is awesome and magnificent! The moment I entered, I feel transported to another world where I do feel so light hearted and relax! Beautiful! Kd enjoys himself too!

I won’t go into too much details but just share with you images I took while we were there.

Warning:
This is a pictures heavy post!

Tip:
Go on a weekday morning at 10am when it just opened. The crowd is much lesser and you will be able to take pictures comfortably. You can exit and ask for a re-entry stamp and come back again later in the day.

Our Beginning of 2013

We had a very meaningful start to 2013!

Early in the morning we woke Kyle up and brought him to Kong Meng San monastery for the “Alms offering to the Sangha” event.  It’s very meaningful and I hope to expose him to Buddhism early.

After that, we began our 3d2n staycation at Resort World Sentosa. I hope that 2013 will be like the way we started it – about giving and sharing, about being contented and grateful, being with and a family full of love and care, having fun in a relaxed and stress free environment and most importantly, being healthy!

So, today we checked into the Michael Hotel, covered the experiential maritime museum, shopped at Vivocity, swam in the pool and watched song of the sea.
