A Walk in the Garden..:)

We brought the li' one to Botanic Gardens yesterday afternoon. It was ze perfect day to do so. The weather was really cool and there was a soft breeze blowing..

Heh..the last time I'd been to the Botanic Gardens was *ahem* during my younger (pre-hubby) 'paktor' days. I'd never realised that the garden grounds was really quite lovely with it's lush greenery, beautiful manicured gardens and an abundance of flora and fauna. Aidan was in his element especially with the huge expanse of space for him to run about and he did so gleefully. My bro Stephen and his wifey Jen joined us so they helped to chase after the li' bugger as he tore down the garden pathway.

We had English high tea at Halia Restaurant which was located within the foliage of Ginger Garden. The food was scrumptious - the sandwiches was delicious and the cakes well-made. Aidan loved the danish pastry and the fluffy raisin scones. The ambience was amazing too. I definitely won't mind going back there again. A romantic dinner at a 'jungle-lit' restaurant would be nice :)

Met up with June bbhome (who stays just 10 minutes away) and she came prepared with bread crumbs so that li' Ryan and Aidan could feed the tortoises and fishes in the pond. And then later we let the kids run wild on the grasspatch.

Hmm..we should plan a picnic there one of these days. And I must remember to bring a beach ball then becuz the li' one 'attacked' any balls that he saw..and in some occasions, snatched it from another kid who was blissfully playing with it. Paiseh man!

Took lotsa photos as usual. I dunno why but I love this series of pics even though most of them didn't turn out very clear. Oh..and if anyone's checking out the picture album, there's a bird question in there which maybe someone u can enlighten us so that next time, we can tell the kids the name of it instead of calling it 'bird'~

the pictures look really beautiful.

i always wanted to a picnic @ botanic garden, but is that a common sight ?

We did see some pple having a picnic there..but the grounds are so huge that you can easily plonk yourself down in a place where you won't get run down by pple n have ur picnic peacefully. It would really be lovely :)

It's a great place to take pics too coz of the greenery..I guess one day, u n ur 2 chabor frens can pop by there and take some pics too :)

I like your Nike top, HK?

The pic behind that waterfall is lovely!
May. 30th, 2004 02:50 am (UTC)

heh..ur school must be ard town area or central..I'm so suaku..hardly go to botanic gardens. Used to just go to the hawker center before it moved. I'd always wanted to try Les Amis too but never had the opportunity.

I think the National Park Boards are doing a fine job with our parks in Singapore..Most of gardens are kept really well and they have so many activities too.

Yeah..u should bring Shann there soon..Can continue with ur pic-taking activity there.

May. 30th, 2004 07:56 am (UTC)
Looks like the kids enjoyed it. Aidan's feet very big hor??
May. 30th, 2004 09:05 am (UTC)
i think our kiddos will always enjoy when they have the opportunity to run freely w/out us adults restricting them..:)

erm..shoe big..that's why i had to let him wear thicker socks :P..
May. 30th, 2004 12:28 pm (UTC)

Lovely! Especially the photo where u're all behind the waterfall.
For a most romantic getaway, try dinner with yc at Au Jardin
May. 30th, 2004 08:52 pm (UTC)
Au Jardin is from the Les Amis group right? We were wondering whether we could go there for dinner that day and then we looked at our attires and burst out laughing. No way were they gonna let us in dressed like that :P..

Heh..but yeah, i heard rave reviews abt the food. But I think i would prefer to try dinner at Halia first becuz i love that it's nestled amongst the greenery..

You look so great, so much slimmer!! Even Poon was also commenting that you really slim a lot liao. (I was wondering if he is also hinting to me or not)

Your photos got me even excited, cos' we are already planning to Botanic garden this wed (public holiday) with my cell group. But got more li ones will be even more interesting.
May. 31st, 2004 08:10 am (UTC)
hm..i seem to be slimmer in photos i think..or rather from waist up :P..still trying to lose more...at least try to reach abt 52kg first then hope to go below 50 :p..prob must tan ku ku..

No lah..im sure poon likes u the way u are :)

So u gonna have a picnic there? Enjoy urself. It's definitely gonna be fun!! Hope the weather is good on that day!
May. 31st, 2004 03:06 am (UTC)
hmm. Actually, I think it's more of a whtie breasted waterhen, or commonly known as the waterhen. Sandpipers usually stay around eh water's edge but they don't run on lily pads. As least that's what I think la. heh.
May. 31st, 2004 08:11 am (UTC)
oh waterhen ah? Must go look for pictures of it hehe..
Yeah..this bird does run on lilypads so u may be right :)

hee..i feel so ignorant!
May. 31st, 2004 07:23 am (UTC)
love all the pixs esp. the last one with the 2 daddies and babies on the shoulders!! the 2 kiddos had load of fun!!
May. 31st, 2004 08:12 am (UTC)
heh the poor dads probably had aching shoulders the day after :)

catching up on ljs... was just giving Sandra a lame excuse that all her weight flew off and somehow landed on me... i think i took yours also! u look fab! kekeke.... better start something b4 i end up like godzilla.
Jun. 3rd, 2004 06:31 pm (UTC)
heh..i didn't lose as much weight as Sandra..only at most 2kg..am working to lose more to get back to my pre-preg shape. Hopefully I'll be as successful as Sandra :P..

Oh i've been meaning to ask u..How is ur canon A80? I saw it at the PC Show and i find it a tad bulky..it's even bigger n heavier than my nikon.
