Family time

Posted by Dawn at Tuesday, January 07, 2014
During the Christmas and New Year Season, the family has been spending lots of time together because of the public holidays. On New Year's Eve, the children went cycling while me and hubby just laid a picnic mat, relax with a book and just talk about thoughts on 2013 and what we look forward in 2014.

I enjoy time when we can just be still and not rush. It was pouring at certain times, but the children loved it!






 
 
 
I was also pleasantly surprised when my ex-colleague (Chinese Teacher), Joyce whom I am not very close to came specially to my house and gave this to me.
 
 
 
It's a Chinese and English Dictionary to help me with my children's Chinese. The gift is so appropriate and useful. She is sooo sweet. I thank God for Joyce and pray God will bless her thoughtful heart!
 
On New Year's Day, we went out to the Asian Civilisation Museum and walked to Collyer Quay area to take a look at the art sculptures which was featured in the newspaper.
 




 
We also walked along the Fullerton Bay area and can somehow imagined last night's scene at the very spot during the New Year's Day Countdown..
 



 
Just outside Fullerton Hotel, we spotted these beauties..




 



There were quite a lot to see at the Asian Civilisation Museum but frankly speaking, I wasn't too interested in the Asian Culture..
 
 
I was more interested in the History of Singapore



 
 
But still, it was just an experience for my children to see the various cultures and religions.
 
We then walked to Fort Canning Park..
 





 
 
You can imagine at this stage, how tired our legs were..
 
We still persisted and walked to the Philatelic museum. Danielle and I were dead tired already. So we opted to just walk and stay on the ground level while the boys went up.
 
There was this section where they show pictures of the past of Singapore various areas like Orchard Rd and the Singapore River. That was interesting to see how much Singapore has developed.
 




 
 
After that, we had an early dinner at Funan before going back. Danielle wasn't feeling well saying how uncomfortable her tummy is. After just a mouth of food, she vomited so much all over the floor. What a sight! Poor girl. She felt so much better after the vomiting and just thank God, she did not vomit in the car. Haha.
 
This whole time, I felt like we were tourists as I learnt so much and saw things I have never seen before.
 
Great time with the family!
 
Up next, got to prepare Caleb as he goes to his new Primary school tomorrow
