He's got this yaya-papaya look eh.
And he looks as if he's got thick eyeliner on!

The boy was actually shortlisted for a photoshoot for a Sony camcorder insert but the shoot was to take place last Friday when we were in Hong Kong. Oh well, I guess he would have definitely preferred Hong Kong than doing the shoot! Am sure that there would be other opportunities :)
******************************

Yes, we spent one whole week in Hong Kong. Aidan had heaps of fun - not surprising since he had 5 days of Disneyland. As we'd stayed in Disneyland hotel, we were given an extra day pass at the park for every pass we purchased. We encountered rain during our first few days in HK but that didn't spoil our fun. There were no queues so we could go for endless rides and we even watched the fireworks in the rain (with umbrellas shielding us of coz!).

I spent one full tiring day at Shenzhen with mengchoo and her kakis..She was there to have her curtains for her new place done. Didn't really buy much there though. Shenzhen is good for buying imitation stuff or home & decor items! The food there was really excellent and cheap though! Have to mention a must place to shop in HK - the Citigate outlets at Tung Chung, Lantau (just 2 stops from Disneyland MTR). It is Hong Kong's first and only outlet mall and houses brand names like Burberry, Club 21,Kate Spade, A/X, Vivienne Tam, Polo Ralph Lauren just to name a few..

claudiachengTracey joined us at Disneyland with Claudia. You can see more pics of Aidan & Claudia playing together here She also brought us to Stanley Market where the kids got to enjoy themselves at the beach! Aidan got along so well with her kids. Her younger boy Matt kept following Aidan around, insisting on holding his hands and playing with him. Very cute lah!

Matt & Aidan :)


Claudia and Aidan had so much fun together!


Compare this pic of the 2 of them to the one below taken 2 years ago :)

Not hard to guess which ride was Aidan's fave!

So when I saw this costume at Stanley Market, I knew I had to get it for him. He loved it so much although I think he looks more like a bumblebee than Buzz Lightyear. Well, at least Toy Story 3 will be in the theatres soon so Buzz wouldn't be so 'out-dated'. Now he's saying that he wants to wear the costume on his birthday *awk*!

It was really a good break for me :) Not sure if I'm able to squeeze in one more holiday at the end of the year especially since Aidan is gonna be in P1 next year (so less holidays!!).

I guess it is because it is just so non-central..pple are so used to shopping at either HK Island or Kowloon. But it is a great place to shop! In fact, the best thing to do is to book a late fight out from hk, check-in yr luggage at HK express and head straight to Citigate and shop till it is time to go to the airport hehe..

You are looking good in the HK trip pictures! Sure look like you had heaps of fun!

And Aidan had to tip-toe two years ago, now he looks squashed under the globe! How fast kids grow!

SO NICE TO SEE YOUR ENTRY AGAIN!

Hey that means you got back just before the typhoon warning hit! Super lucky!! :) Haha, he looks super satisfied in his Buzz Lightyear costume lah! I went to Citygate in March after we visited Lantau island. I thought the Club21 outlet, Kate spade outlet were pretty good but the rest were still pretty expensive. Bf managed to grab 2 pairs of jeans from the Giordano outlet and at S$20 each and he was reaally happy :P

Yeah, we had several days of really good weather in HK and returned on Monday night. And then I read abt the typhoon warning in HK after we returned *heng ah*

Yup, the Club 21 outlet had really good deals but I didn't buy anything there coz everything was so 'summery'. I thought the deals at Kate Spade & Polo Ralph Lauren were q good. I think there was more sale items this time round coz it's supposed to be the sale period in HK.

Was about to mention the typhoon warning too! Good thing your trip wasn't affected :)

(I thought I saw you and Aidan out of the corner of my eye at Anchorpoint a couple of weeks ago... were you there on a Sunday? I was super frazzled so didn't stop to see if it was you!!)
