so we’re halfway through our week-long break.

we let aniq ditch school from tuesday onwards, and since our half-cooked plans to get out of the country didn’t look like it’d materialise, i thought, what the heck, we can still have fun right here without getting our passports stamped, dammit.

no fixed itinerary. just free-and-easy.

at marina barrage, after our holiday ‘tradition’ of a mackers big breakfast.

a panoramic view of the skyline marred by cranes and buildings undergoing construction, some information about water (i think, ha haha), a wide open grass area that’d be great for kite-flying or a picnic (if one doesn’t mind a suntan while at it). and a shallow wading pool thingy, alike the one at vivo, except, perhaps, cleaner. nothing makes kiddies happier than splashing about in a bit of water on a hot day. coz they’re easily amused like that.


and after all that sun, a bit of ice kacang was called for. these were particularly good.


can’t you tell? they were so good, daddy’s ratty handkerchief had to double up as a bib for the little one, who dug in with as much relish as the rest of us.


Bottle Tree Park, where some pathetic attempts at fishing took place. lol!


for $10, we got a boy with his pants soaked, mommy with slimy feet from pond scum, baby with restraint fishermen instincts, and daddy who caught 11 longkang guppies but gave credit to his 3-year-old for the triumph. much to the delight of the baby, who now knows what ‘fish’ is. (when asked “where’s the fish?”, she’d waddle to the kitchen where the fish was subsequently held captive in their fishtank. they were all to die tragically 24 hours later – death by chlorinated water. talk about irresponsible pet owners, tsk.)


the boy spent quality time with his yai today (no doubt glued to the video game console), while the girl spent quality time with her daddy (trawling sim lim and funan, future techie in training). and mommy, err, spent quality time with her friend in retail therapy. ahh, the life.

“let’s go, my engine’s revved up!”

nope, it’s not turning out to be a SAHM week after all. there’s to be no staying at home, that’s fer sure.

    hana dear, be careful with that longkang fishing at Bottle Tree. Brought Alya there but plan terus cancelled when we saw 2 kids with wat looks like rashes on their legs/feet, waddle in the pond. Kid’s Kampung much better, hygiene wise, since they dun allow kids to waddle in the longkang.
