More pics of Aidan eating as usual! Taken at Linda's birthday celebration at Sun with Moon@Wheelock Place.

It was a hat party..I wore Aidan's cowboy hat (Woody's hat from his Toy Story outfit) since I didn't have any :P Similarly,troubadour42 wore his daughter's Erin Minnie Mouse hat *grin*

With crysta

The lovely 42ers couple :)






**************************

Had sort of a 'family' gathering at my sis's restaurant, Cafe Banh Mi on Thursday when my uncle & cousins decided to try out the food there. So far, her joint has gotten some positive food reviews from Urban & Business Times. Wee Teck from The New Paper and some of his colleagues from the other pubs will be going down next week to try out the food too and that will hopefully lead to more fab reviews. If any of you guys are working around Raffles Place/China Square area, do go check out her cafe. Must support lah!

Some other online reviews I found :)

The pho was good! Initially, sis wanted to focus more on the Vietnamese sandwiches but she soon realised that Singaporeans are a pho-crazy bunch. Do try it if you happen to go to her cafe :)

With my cousins, Karen and Terence..

That's Uncle Woo Seng, Terence's dad and Roy (next to Terence), who's my nephew..The family is really huge so I've given up figuring whose kid is whose..Still waiting for Terence to do up the family tree so that I have more of a clue next time..
*************************

Got myself a new pair of blades - The K2 Kinetic 8.0 :D~!
Am amazed at how comfortable it is..They call it the 'Softboot' design and it wraps the foot really snugly and it is much lighter too. Quite a change from the bulky, heavy blades I had before..The bearings are a not the same too, supposedly rated better than the Abecs. Can definitely feel the difference when I'm blading...much smoother and with more spin. *shioks*

Tested it out immediately!


Hub got himself a new pair too. Actually, it was his idea to get ourselves some new equipments. I liked the design & color of his model but they only had the black in Men sizes *bleah*. The women's pair was some ugly blue shade. Yecks! He didn't understand why I was so into the 'aethestics' of the blades. Comfort and performance were the most important factors, he said. *Sigh* the man just don't geddit..!



Anyone going for the Samsung Inline Skating event at Padang on 9 Oct? Would be an interesting change in location..blading from City Hall to the Supreme Court & Parliament House. Loads of activities apparently ranging from the inline skating challenge, caricaturists, balloon sculpturists, jugglers, stilt walkers, finger licking food and Hip-Hop Skating Dance..wah!

There is a recreational segment for the non-competitors too. But darn, the rules dicates that it is mandatory that all skaters wear proper helmets and wrist/hand protection throughout the Challenge. Alamak, I hate wearing helmets (but i probably will insist Aidan wears one when I start teaching him how to blade!)

YC's skates look like mine. I got the men's pair because they were wider and my feet are big lah. I don't mind going for the skate event - wanna go together? K needs to break in his new speed skates.

Probably is the same. It was last year's model! They look so cool *sigh*!
Oi..onz ah! Been looking for kakis..would be more fun to blade with more pple. U planning to bring Aly too? Was wondering whether they will allow kids on bikes. Maybe we'll just bring his stroller :P You have helmets?

so is the food at sun nice? is sun and fish&co from same company? how come their entrance is the same one?

The food's not bad though the service is kinda erratic. I was there the latest yet I was served first (i shouldnt be complaining right) but the rest ordered way before me but their food came quite late. Maybe they saw that I had a hungry kid with me :P I prefer it's sister restaurant at Chijmes though..Prefer the ambience and selection of the food there.

Don't think it's associated with Fish & Co at all. Fish & Co is co-owned by two Singaporeans..Ricky Chew & Lambert Yeo..Read in a news article that one of the owner, a former SIA steward who got this idea through his constant travels. On the other hand, the Sun restaurants in Singapore is by Suntory F&B International Group .

Always love to see Aidan eat. Like Qile, they both enjoy their food so much. Never see Sarah eat this way :P

Btw, at wat age can we start the kids on blading? hee i was learning how to blade when i found out i was pregnant. Now i still half a pail of water "ban tong shui" :P

Someone told me the best age to start is 3 but i guess to be safe, we should start abt 4..I think maybe we can start off with rollerskates as it's more stable (dunno whether they still sell those though)..

Heh..u can always start learning again leh!

Honestly, blading isnt an easy sport to pick up..especially when one doesnt pick it up early. Can be quite painful especially when you don't fall 'properly'..But if you are keen, can learn what. Anyway,u look really fit leh!

Is that cheesecake in the bird cage? It sure looks very yummy!
What does Aidan prefer, noodles or rice? Don't tell me he's ok with both.... hahah
angeliatay
Sep. 26th, 2005 05:25 am (UTC)
yup..it's toufu cheesecake..but i don't taste any toufu in it :)
Aidan loves chinese food - especially rice & noodles, particularly beehoon. He doesn't like western food that much though except for french fries!
