With family and friends

Posted by Dawn at Friday, December 31, 2010
What better way to spend new year's eve than to spend it with your loved ones?

First up, I took a train down to Chinatown Station in the morning to have breakfast with my colleagues. It was a farewell breakfast for 2 of my colleagues, Mr Thoh and Soo Lin who would be retiring and the other, going to Tampines JC to teach respectively.

Had breakfast at Red Star Dim Sum Restaurant. Its situated in Blk 54 Chin Swee Road, Level 7. I have heard so much about this restaurant before but never did try out the food. Was glad I finally had the chance to try. Not too bad.

We ordered lots of food- suckling pig, roast duck, porridge and lots of usual dim sum food.Met at 9am and ended our 'breakfast' till noon! Cant believe we actually had so much to talk!




I will definitely miss Mr Thoh and Soo Lin as they move on from Hai Sing.


At night, went my parents' place for dinner. Mum prepared prawn mee with other dishes to go with.


The kids had fun playing with the boxes in my parents' place.



They enjoyed hiding themselves in the box such that CT decided to carry them up in a box!


After dinner, we went home and celebrated our New Year's Eve at our estate as they had party just at the field, down at my block.


We just took a look downstairs before making our way back home. We watched movies together as a family as we waited for midnight to come.

However, as time passed on, I could see that the kids were restless waiting for the the arrival of the new year. So Vicky brought them downstairs to play at the playground. There were also a lot of people line dancing at the basketball court at about 10 plus.


The kids played for about 2 hours at the playground as we all waited to catch the fireworks at our place. Our estate held fireworks for the first time and I feel so blessed as it took place just down the open field at my house.

At about 1145pm, we walked down to meet up with the children before walking to the open field.

Caleb and Danielle was playing with this chey chey (big sister) throughout the whole time in the playground. There's Danielle on the girls' bicycle.


The field was not as crowded as I expected. In fact, it was quite bare as the people just stood at the side.



We all enjoyed watching the fireworks since its history in the making by witnessing fireworks for the first time in our estate! Moreover, it was just right in front of us with unblocked view! How cool is that! The kids all enjoyed themselves tremendously! It was definitely well worth the wait!


Enjoy this!
