Last day in Singapore

The baby’s face says it all, meh…it’s our last day in Singapore.

The day started out great with this yummy pack of economy beehoon that ah ms and Tspellstrouble bought for my breakfast. They had to trek to the newly renovated Lorong 1 market for our breakfast and have been buying us breakfasts for the past few mornings, 辛苦了!

LG is blurry, Tristan’s eyes are close but never mind, Saitaoha looks cute #shamelessmummy.

Saitaoha is LG’s little shadow, it’s amusing to watch her adulation, I hope she doesn’t mind too much that LG won’t be joining us for the last leg of the trip.

Ah ma looked after Saitaomei (apparently she yelled her lungs out for an hour after we left πŸ˜“) at home so I had the luxury of handling only one kid whilst shopping with my sisters. I decided to do without the stroller and Tula-ed Saitaoha instead, good idea because she was thrilled to be carried for a change and even slept in the Tula throughout lunch.

Lunch at Tampopo of meitaiko tonkatsu set was pretty good, my sister and I shared this so the portion was just right. I enjoyed lunch a lot, probably because my kid was sleeping haha.

More playground time in the afternoon. My sister took this photo saying ‘look how small and cute she is, such a munchkin!’ In my eyes, my child has grown so much, but to my sister whose daughter is 6, she’s so little. I must keep reminding myself she’s only two.

Saitaoha wasn’t quite sure how to pose like jeje, always trying to keep up with her older cousins.

Ooh what is this yummy looking snack?

Babies cannot eat meh?

Can I try just a little bit pretty please?

Maybe they won’t notice if I slowly inch my mouth towards the snack.

Getting closer… getting closer…

Lor mee for dinner, I ate mine too late and the noodles were all soggy and all the crispy bits no longer crispy. But I still liked it leh, so much better fresh at the stall I reckon.

We’ve been eyeing this honey cheese cake thing from Breadtalk for days and finally succumbed tonight. It was ok only.

I will miss Singapore and spending time with my family here. I loved our late night TP central shopping jaunts, enjoying Singapore food with my family, our playground sessions and watching the kids play together. I laugh most freely and happily with my family, so I’m grateful to have this gem of a break to tuck into my memory box. Thank you again Singapore for the memories.


Saitaomei on her first slide, I think she enjoyed it. I kept having flashbacks of Saitaoha at the same playground when she was younger. Oh how she has grown.

So happy tagging along with her favourite LG jeje. You could hear her shouting ‘careful LG jeje!’ over and over again as her agile cousin clambered up and down the bars. LG jeje would reply patiently ‘I’m OK!!’ At first I was worried she would attempt to go on the bars that were much to difficult for her age, but she seems to know what is above her means and kept to the ones appropriate for her age.

My little girl is a proper little missus now. She’s a handful and can be a terror sometimes, but she’s also very funny and makes us laugh a lot.

She’s going to miss her LG jeje so much when the holiday is over, definitely the highlight of her trip is spending so much time with her cousins, yee yees and yee zhang.

I’m so so glad Saitaomei is still my chilled baby. I love the babyness of her, don’t know what I’m going to do with she grows up 😭.

This baby enjoyed herself at The Line buffet, chomping on bread.

My plates were pretty much all sashimi. The buffet was ok only, I would like to try others!

All the nonya kuih which were pretty to look at but average only.

The National Day beef rendang burger from Burger King was quite tasty but the fries were so bad.

The Teh Tarik pie was pretty good though! Really had Teh Tarik flavour.

We went to Tung Lok He Xi for their games Peking duck. My Bil loves Peking duck so we ordered a whole one. It was really good, even though I didn’t get to eat much because my kids were acting up. Luckily my sister kept wrapping pancakes for me (popping candy was very interesting!) which I devoured at my brief moments at the table.

My bil was so kind to take the kids out for walks now and then, sacrificing his time with his precious duck πŸ˜…. My family have all been incredibly helpful and understanding lah, I feel very bad because with two kids in tow, I’ve made travelling and outings a lot more troublesome and stressful.

All these lovely Peking duck photos were taken by my sis. I was missing in action, probably hiding in a corner somewhere rocking the wailing baby to sleep.

Free salted egg fish skin was moreish.

I liked the duck tongue too, I thought the quality of food was all excellent, would love to return with my ah pa.

We are all suffering from sore feet/back from too much walking and sore guts from too much eating. Surely the signs of a good break?
