I am so glad the weekend is here – this week has been LONG… all last week’s fault for being a 4 day week. Haha!
This week, my mum came home from her holiday in Spain and Portugal, we had a great dinner with my father, had late night supper and drinks with my sister and her friends at a great place, went shopping, revisited an old favourite dinner place of ours that has shifted locations, my sister received a cake from her students, we ate burgers again, exercised and played at a super old playground in Singapore.
Please enjoy these photos!
I love snow globes and magnets – these are souvenirs from Spain and Portugal from my mum.
We went to the airport to fetch my mum and we saw these ‘animals’ at the arrival hall – guess what? The guy in the ‘lion’ suit was there to propose to his girlfriend. All his friends were there to help him surprise her. But she took more than 45 minutes to come out and we had to leave. Look at how enthusiastic the ‘giraffe’ was ! !
I put the new magnets on my full – to – the – brim fridge door.
Flowers in my mum’s garden on a sunny Sunday afternoon
We went for lunch nearby and a kind guy passed us his carpark coupon – it still had 15 minutes of paid time left. 15 minutes was all we needed for our lunch noodles.
We had fishball noodles after we parked the car.
My sister and her friends went for a super short 1 day holiday to Bintan!
Jingle slept beside me on Sunday night as I blogged and she suddenly awoke looking like this – this was super funny!

Look at the cute vintage cars!
Freaky looking dolls …
I love bread from here!

We had dinner with my dad at Sentosa Cove
A lot of the residents at Sentosa, have yachts. Sentosa is a popular island resort located south of Singapore.

I had yong tau foo for lunch one day -Yong tau foo is a dish where you choose from a wide varied selection of food items, including fish balls, crab sticks, bittergourds, cuttlefish, lettuce, ladies fingers, as well as chilis, and various forms of fresh produce, seafood and meats common in Chinese cuisine.
KW’s lunch – char siew rice (Roast pork rice that is served with slices of char siew, sliced cucumber, white rice and covered in a sweet gravy or dark soy sauce.)
KW and I had burgers at ‘Burger Shack’

It was very hot on Saturday afternoon.
Jingle on 1 of her many daily walks
My sister went on a picnic!
Our dinner – porridge with sweet potato
2 of our dishes – slow braised pork belly with preserved vegetables and salted egg. Very popular dish – the pork was heavenly!
Claypot tofu with vegetables
All the dishes together
Outside of the Oasis restaurant – very oriental- looking.
You don’t find these playgrounds very often in Singapore these days – this is very very old school (those I played with when I was young). The playgrounds in the past actually have sand. KW and I had fun playing here, after our porridge dinner!
