I told ya I can't do splits!!!

Aidan lookin really blur..just before his bedtime...

Li' bugger was kinda fussy during little gym session today.. He was sleepy coz I'd woken him up from his nap earlier on and also, his gums are probably irritating him like crazy..the tiny li' tooth has sprouted out even more though it's still impossible to get a pic of it..

Didn't take any pics today coz stupid me forgot to load the battery into the cam *sigh*..After the gym session, us four mummies (me + bbhome, koalababy, sonday) decided to check out the Mothercare sale at Marina Square so we had to take the MRT from the Orchard station to Raffles station..

The train was fairly packed..and all the seats were taken when we entered the cabin..One kind fella stood up..and jus stepped aside..so one of us moms (cant remember who) took it first..and then interestingly, almost everyone in that row started to vacate their seats and offered it to us. We were left with so many seats to choose from. It felt good knowing that pple bothered to offer us their seats especially since this really doesn't happen very often.. We must have been quite a sight I guess..4 moms with 4 noisy li' boys..2 in strollers and and 2 tucked in their sarong slings.. !!

But I tell ya..!! Singapore subways are really not baby (stroller) friendly..the escalators are so narrow and steep and going at such a high speed ..there are no lifts and the stairs were just as daunting....Imagine, just from Orchard to Marina Square (via Citilink) alone, we had to navigate the strollers through at least 7 escalators!! Thankfully, we had 2 mummies with slings to help us, especially since we were carrying shopping bags too!

Okay..ICA rejected Aidan's passport pic..not coz he looked too stoned...These were the reasons they gave..

1. Has shadows around the image
2. Image background is not white in colour
3. Facial features not taken at full front view

Bleah..so strict..Oh well, at least it wouldn't be much of a problem getting a passport pic of Aidan there at the immigration office...

Seems like the weekend break to Avilion Village Resort @Port Dickson is on track..we will be leavin on the Fri 22nd August and back on the sunday. Hubby said he is able to take leave on that day afterall so we will probably leave in the afternoon. Now, we're trying to convince our in-laws to join us too!!

We'll be bunkin in one of these water chalets..cool eh!!

HHAHAHA you should make your own mood icons using his pictures.
Aug. 7th, 2003 09:07 am (UTC)
heh..I did before leh..I remember creating Aidan emoticons :D..
But more fun to take new grouchy pics of him ~

Aidan really looks like a miniature gymnast in the pic #1. Nice jumper too!

Woah, the Avilion resort looks nice. I think I like the water chalets best. In fact, I was just discussing with my gf about a resort vacation too. We were drooling over the Hilton Maldives and their spectacular water chalets, but it's damn bloody ex! Let me know how's the Avilion can? :)
Aug. 7th, 2003 09:54 am (UTC)
Yeah..I thought the resort looks good too. We will be bookin a standard water chalet..will let u know how Avilion turns out.When are u plannin to go?

Woah..holiday to Maldives is definitely gonna be expensive. I guess it depends on ur budget then. Must it be water chalets? U can try banyan tree..heard it's beautiful. Actually, hubby mentioned that one of the best resort he's been to is The Datai at Langkawi..very beautiful and classy but ex tho..

yeah.. it is true... took mrt to jurong point with gabe the other day and that was the first time in my stay in singapore that i was offered a seat!! :) feel so funny, i was usually one who would offer seat to old folks, pregnant mums, etc.. feel soooooo old :P

and when i first came to singapore, my first impression of the mrt was how much faster the escalators were!! i think escalators in mrt stations were the fastest i have ever been on so far.... dunno, mabbe to meet the demand of peak hours human traffic, i guess...
Aug. 7th, 2003 10:12 am (UTC)
I remember someone ever told me that they have stop offerin seats to pregnan women and moms with children becuz many a times, they get rejected and they end up feelin embarrassed..But i really wonder why would those pple who were offered refuse..unless the next stop was their's..

Actually, @Orchard..we took a while to go down becuz the escalator looked so daunting..so Gwynne went down first and she went to the control station and asked whether they could lessen the speed for us..and they told her no..that the speed could not be controlled from their end..

I guess u are right that it was probably made that way to cater to the peak hours human traffic but it's kinda ridiculous that the speed cant be controlled manually..Am jus wonderin..what abt the handicaps then?

oh does he ever look grouchy in the first one..hehe :p yet he still looks so darn cute..

yes its very kind that those people let all of you sit, chivalry and courtesy is sometimes non existant

those pics look soo cool :) I'd love to sleep in one of those water chalets!
Aug. 7th, 2003 10:34 pm (UTC)
Well,I know of lotsa pple complainin about Singaporeans being self centred and it's really good to know that not all of them are like that.. I have encountered a few myself..I'd taken a bus alone (with shopping bags) when I was abt 7 months pregnant and not a single soul offered me their seats.

Yeah..am definitely lookin to the water chalet.imagine, havin water all ard u :)

Aidan looks like bai ma wang zi (prince charming) in his white suit. :)

You took which package for the rooms? Those are rates in ringgits, right? looks very nice, hope we can go next time too.
Aug. 7th, 2003 10:36 pm (UTC)
We are getting the standard water chalet :) I think the highlight of this place are their water chalets so must get to stay in it. Yup, the rates are in ringgit and yeah, it does look kinda nice from the pics rite. Will let u know if it's really good and also abt the travellin :P..
Aug. 7th, 2003 04:51 pm (UTC)
I think you have better luck with the MRT than I do! Anyway, I really like Aidan's grouch look ~ way too cute!
Aug. 7th, 2003 10:37 pm (UTC)
Yeah..did read abt ur horrendous experience at the Mrt with Ethan..I guess it was also becuz we were there in 'full force'..4 moms 'strugglin' with 4 babies tho we werent really havent a tough time hehe..Hard to miss up coz if they divert their eyes, they probably end up seein one of us still hehe..
Aug. 7th, 2003 06:07 pm (UTC)
the resort looks nice. do let me know your feedback.
Aug. 8th, 2003 12:12 am (UTC)
Yup..will do!! Am lookin forward to it.(not looking that forward to the 6 hours drive - to n fro though)

We've been to Avillion before, very nice place, esp the water chalets! But the beach is only so-so. They've got like 4 swimming pools, so enjoy yourselves!

But the best water chalets are the ones in Maldives where we went for our honeymoon. Beeoootiful! We could just walk down to the sea right from the stairs in our balcony, and overlook the ocean from the bathtub. Heavenly!!! Love the place, hubby n I decided then that we'll go back there again for 1 of our wedding anniversary and bring our kids too! *dream*

Aug. 7th, 2003 10:39 pm (UTC)
Wow..u n hubby are really avid beach/resort goers eh! Yeah..the pool looks really nice leh. Well, I cant swim as of yet so most prob, I'll jus hang by the swimmin pool. Do they have many water activities btw?

Fwah..Maldives! But so expensive man!! I think we'll go there later..when I do know how to swim :)

I like his jumper. Macy has a pink one with a butterfly...

So envious... I wanna go too... my skin has not seen the sun for the longest time... I miss the smell of the sand and the sea...
Aug. 8th, 2003 12:03 am (UTC)

Aug. 7th, 2003 09:41 pm (UTC)
There's hope for Singapore yet! :)

Hey, how much are those water chalets? I can feel the sea luring me.... =P

Aug. 8th, 2003 12:08 am (UTC)
The rates are posted in the website..i think for the standard water chalets, it's @300 Sing per night but my pal, who is getting the chalets for us is negotiating for a discount since they are quite a few of us going..will let u know later :)

Aug. 7th, 2003 09:58 pm (UTC)

anyways yeah i ask you in the prev entry but u n'e say.. whens' aidan's first birthday?
Aug. 8th, 2003 12:09 am (UTC)
Oops..i remembered the question but i forgot to answer hehe..
Aidan's birthdate is 23 Dec 02.so it's gonna be just 2 days before X'mas :)
Aug. 8th, 2003 07:41 am (UTC)
I'm sure you 'll be taking lots of photos, do let us know your personal review of this place. I thought of going to Australia, great Coral Reefs, but to be more realistic, it would be Malaysia, so nearest is Desaru. But now... this water chalets look more tempting...
Aug. 8th, 2003 09:52 am (UTC)
When are you planning to go for ur hols? Yeah, will let u know how it goes :)
