friday@the zoo..

token pic of animal..

A hot & bothered Aidan, staring at the kangaroo

Finally fell asleep..with cheeks flushed and sweat drenched hair..

pretty li' Chloe..

getting ready to watch the elephants..

cute Tiffany enjoying the cool water..

watching the fountain

Gywnne koalababy and Evan playing with the water..

Aidan acting cool..

eh..not a good pic but the only one of us in the water...

Yeah..we were very brave!! We brought our kids to the zoo even when everyone was trying hard to stay cool indoors. Foolhardy, adventurous or just a case of itchy backside..I don't know :P

Oh the way to the zoo in the cab, Aidan puked [again] *sigh*. Both times in a moving vehicle. Am pretty sure it's a case of motion sickness. Thankfully, he ate a while back so there wasn't much to vomit ..most landed on me and and not much on the seat of the cab. Still felt really paiseh but the cabdriver was quite calm considering what had happened. I had a spare tee to change into and Gywnne lent me a pair of shorts belonging to her son (I only brought an extra tee for Aidan).

Well, needless to say, it was freaking hot at the zoo! Initially, Aidan was still eagerly looking out for the animals but after a while, he started to get drowsy which wasn't surprising because he usually naps in the afternoon. He became quite flustered because of the heat and kept on rubbing his eyes and his face was all flushed and his hair drenched with his perspiration. Thankfully we could seek shelter in those aircon-enclosed areas. He finally slept and woke up when we were on the way to the children's area where the wet playground was ...and the kids had fun there of coz :)

Am a li' little worried though coz we'll be going to Hong Kong this Thursday. Hubby isn't coming but my mom-in-law is. And my sis and my mom will be joining us later..Aidan will be tagging along and it's his first plane ride. Am afraid that he may get motion sickness on the plane. Am seriously thinking whether I should get something from the doc to knock him out so that he will sleep thru the plane ride.

Looking forward to bringing Aidan to Ocean Park, Snoopyland, Teddybear Kingdom..and also to go to places which I didn't manage to go the last time (The Peak)..Will most likely be meeting Mong meganmacy and Tracey claudiacheng and their kids when we go to some of the 'kids-friendlier' places so our li' ones can meet and play with each other :) Doubt I will be doing much shopping with Aidan around but will definitely be checking out more food places.

Just wanna share this conversation I had with a Valueair sales rep.

Me : Can I book tickets for the 21st May from Sing-HK?
VA : Sorry, the flight on the 21st is a women-only flight.
Me : But it's us women only..and one child who's less than 2 years old.
VA : But he's a male. It's a ladies-only flight. Child or no child.
Me (jokingly) : Hmm..if I dress him up as a girl and let him wear a wig, will u let me buy the ticket and board the plane..
VA : ..........*breathe in* ..So, would u like to book tickets on the 20th or 22nd instead?

hee..oh well, at least I tried. Am taking Valueair because the infant fare is only SGD60. The other airlines are charging abt SGD240 for the infant fare and SGD280 for a child's seat. Well, hoping that the plane won't be full so that we can have the entire row to ourselves...

Looks like fun even if it was hot. Was wondering if I should take Stephen to the zoo in July when we are planning to go back. His cousin from HK will be in S'pore then too. She might enjoy the zoo as well.

What's with our kids and puking? There are some tips to getting over motion sickness at this website.
May. 16th, 2004 08:19 am (UTC)
Actually, I think the zoo's a great place for the kids. Try to go earlier ..say abt 9/10 am so it wouldn't be that hot. We were crazy..we were there at like 1pm..

Thanks for the site..checking it out now!

there was one week, me tammy and ash went to the zoo too!

but so many things happening recently, didn't have time to post the pics or write an entry about.

reliving our childhood, it was fun!
May. 16th, 2004 08:21 am (UTC)
Heh i do agree..it is fun if u do such stuff with ur good pals once in a while. U realise u tend to see it differently compared to the time when u were a kid.

*hugz* i know it's been tough for u..hang in there eh. You deserve better.

1. Eh, your eyebrows are looking good.
2. I think I see where Aidan got his eyebrows from too.
3. So hot yah? I cannot imagine too...
4. I am going to HK Observatory to check out the coolest day to go Ocean Park.
5. Go to the Peak for lunch, though a tad warm but very very nice feel. I recommend Cafe Decor or Peak Lookout.
6. Can't wait to see my SIL again.
May. 16th, 2004 08:23 am (UTC)
oooh..good good. Let us know the best day for Ocean Park..How's the weather in HK now? Hope it's not as humid as Singapore man..
Heh..I can't wait to see my dil too :)

Lovely pics as usual! It's cos you're a wonderful mummy thats why you will do things like bringing Aidan to the zoo on a hot, humid day... :)

If you're going to HK, would it be possible to buy some of the teeth whitening stripes for me when you're there? Would really appreciate it!
May. 16th, 2004 08:23 am (UTC)
yeah..will get it for u then :) no problem!

felt the first 2 pics looks much like schindler's list, with only the clothing highlighted. =) it's really very good that aidan and other babies can 'hang out' together so frequently. This will surely do him good (thinking of our b now...)
May. 16th, 2004 08:24 am (UTC)
heh he hangs out with tons of kids already..just that he hasnt seen his 'betrothed' for a while *ahem*
May. 16th, 2004 07:54 am (UTC)
After seeing your photos at Zoo, I also want to bring Caleb to the Zoo, I'm still waiting for him to walk on his own, so that it would be a lot more easier for him to roam around.
May. 16th, 2004 08:25 am (UTC)
actually, aidan sat in the stroller most of the time. Only time he came out was at the children's area where he played with water. It was too darn hot to let him walk abt on his own and he was also rather tired and sleepy already..

Anyway..can see it's just a matter of time before Caleb start toddling ard! U will get ur zoo wish soon!
May. 16th, 2004 08:39 am (UTC)
love the photos!!!! i miss the outings with you ladies and am sure gabe misses all his playdates!! :)
May. 17th, 2004 06:59 am (UTC)
heh..no worries. When u are on leave, just let us know. We'll arrange our kids to meet up n play!

Cute pics! But what possessed you all to go in such insane weather? Heh.

The all woman flight thingy sounds soooooo ridiculous. Can call and pretend you're undergoing sexual reassignment surgery, so check whether can board the May 21st flight or not. Heh.
May. 17th, 2004 07:00 am (UTC)

u ladies are so ON! Letting your kiddos & urself get all wet.
To prevent motion sickness on the plane, u can try giving him promethezine. It's a mild medication, can be bought at pharmacy and will knock him out within the hour.
Both my kids took it when we went to Downunder
May. 17th, 2004 07:03 am (UTC)
heh it was sooooo hot that we didnt mind getting drenched ourselves.
promethezine hmm..i heard of it before. thanks!!!
