Daddy and Mummy have been quite busy recently and have not been bringing me to CSC for some water fun for quite a while. Since the weather on Sunday morning was great, they decided it was the time for some water fun ....
I woke up at about 745 am, quickly finished my milk and breakfast, and then I changed into my swimming outfit, ready to splash into the wave pool.
And the first thing that I did, was to rent a float. And you guessed it right, PINK float !!! I made Mummy dig all the way to the bottom of all the floats, just to get the one and only PINK float. In case you do not know, my favourite colour is PINK, and I am obsessed with PRINCESS characters ... if only the float has princess characters on it. Haha
Since the wave pool did not start until 10 am, I spent half an hour playing in the "lazy stream" pool (this is how I call the pool .. haha). Need not use any strength to move forward, since the water jet will propel me ahead. All I have to do, is to lie down and float
And at 10 am sharp, Daddy and I went to the wave pool .... and that was the fun part, where I just go up and down with the waves ....
Had almost 2 hours of great fun, before Daddy and I hit the showers. Will try to get some of my friends to join me next time.
Went for my first lesson in my new ballet class (one level up from my previous class).
Start with some warm up and stretching exercises
Then I learnt some new dance steps and movement
At the end of my lesson, I told Daddy and Mummy that I wanted to go back to my previous class ... because my classmates did not want to talk to me. Daddy and Mummy explained to me that I was new to the class, so it would take some time for me to make new friends .... same thing when I move from K2 to P1 next year .... after hearing that, I decided to give it another try next lesson.
Daddy and Mummy were thinking if I really like ballet, then they will move to me another ballet school once the term has ended ... the current class size is too big, and the teacher was not that professional ... kept talking to the pianist during lesson time.
Every Friday, I will bring my pillow, bolster, bedsheet and blanket back from school to wash. So while I was at the back in Daddy's car, I decided to make myself super comfortable on my journey back home.
During lunch preparation, I insisted on Daddy to video the whole preparation process ... and the reason is to let Daddy know how to prepare simple lunch and if he ever forgets, refer to the video next time. Daddy was giggling when he heard that, but just to satisfy me, he decided to video me
So the easy steps to preparing a simple lunch. First, wash the rice
Then cut the fresh mushrooms into cubes ... or small pieces, and dump them into the rice pot
Next comes the carrot .... small pieces as well, and dump them into the rice pot
Fill the rice pot with the right amount of water, nothing more, nothing less
And then, the final step : put the pot into the cooker and wait for a nice meal to be served !!!
On Sunday morning, I woke up and then went over to Daddy and Mummy bedroom with my National Geographic magazine .... and since Sundays are supposed to be "lazy", I read the magazine in my pyjamas on their bed.
And then time to brush my teeth, and prepare to go for breakfast to start my Sunday activities.
Video taken from 爷爷 and 奶奶 place on Friday night .... looks like it would be heavy rain with the dark sky illuminated by the orange lightning flashes. And true enough, heavy thunderstorm on Sat early morning
Since Auntie Lily and Uncle Michael (our next door neighbours) were out on a trip to China, the responsibility to help them feed their cat (Happy) and fishes became mine. And I was so glad to do that, because I simply love animals .... cats, dogs, goats etc ... In the past, there was Mimi (the female dog), but she had to be put to sleep due to an illness.
So after dinner, I went over with Daddy to feed Happy ... and Daddy thought it was pretty amusing to see me doing that. It was as if I was treating Happy as a small child, coaxing him (yes, it is a male dog) to eat his dinner.
A few more days of feeding ... and Auntie Lily and Uncle Michael would be back .... how time flies.
Over the weekend, we went for our annual tomb sweeping activity. And after that, we decided to go for Japanese buffet at Senki. And needless to say, buffet (especially Japanese cuisine) is my favourite. And believe it or not, I ate so much more than Daddy and Mummy .... they cannot imagine how my little tummy can accomodate so much food .... and at the end of the buffet, it was a Pooh Bear tummy !!!
And guess what the 3 musketeers were doing ??? Playing the same game on iPhone and seeing who can go to the next level faster !!! iPhone fun after tummy are full
And to digest the food, we went for some retail therapy ... and what better way to burn calories is to dance in front of the mirror !!!
A tired day and since I did not nap in the afternoon, it was super quick for me to slumber into dreamland at night.
On the way home, I started the conversation with Daddy on work. He has been on telecon at night recently due to work, and I asked Daddy why does he need to work at night. He commented that he needed to work so that he can buy things for me, send me for classes etc. And Daddy offered not to work, but have me work instead ...
And I gladly replied him :
"I can also go and work, but only in Baby Boss and Kidzania ... and I can buy my own things"
Daddy noticed that the second drawer of my cabinet in my room was locked (usually it was the first drawer that had the key). So he opened that, and he got a surprise !!!
My bear was nicely sitting inside the drawer ....
Opening the drawer a little wider, and the bear was indeed sitting comfortably on a cushion among my skirts !!!
And then Daddy realized why I kept talking to myself the night before, when I was alone in my room (I was supposed to go and sleep after Daddy put me to bed). In fact, I was trying to 'discipline' my naughty bear by putting him inside the cupboard until he learnt his lesson .... and this all happened in the dark room with no lights .... blame it on the good Vitamin A which gives me perfect night vision so that I can have some fun in the dark before I finally get tired and go to sleep. Haha.
I was pretty sore about having only 4 stars for my first 听写 although I have all the 5 words correctly written. So I was determined to get the last star .... and it was as 'easy' as reminding myself to keep quiet throughout the 听写 time.
'Easy' because I simply have to share my thoughts with others all the time .... haha. Wonder how I am going to survive when I go P1 where I have to listen more than talk.
Daddy's first 10 km run for the year !!! Since he has not tried out the 2XU run before, he decided to sign himself up for that. Has not been training regularly for the run though.
On the actual day, Daddy was late for the 7 am kick off, since he had to go to a few buildings before he can find carpark lot. By the time he reached the site, he joined the queue and managed to go past the Start line at 745 am (by then the sun was up already). The route was new to Daddy since he has not tried that route before in his other runs (along Nicoll Highway). However, for most of the route, it was so crowded and tight (only 1.5 lanes to and fro) that people kept bumping into one another. The only good thing was that the route was relatively flat, with not too many uphills and downhills.
Since Daddy has not really trained for the run, he had to stop and walk at the 8.5 km mark for 500 m, before he continued his run to the Finish point. And he got a timing of 58 mins (based on Runkeeper, similar to the official results of 57 mins), satisfied that it was less than one hour for a 10 km run (not his personal best, but good enough).
Unique medal design, since all his other past medals were just round in shape
Maybe another 10 km run in 2H12 and that's it for Daddy for the year ... his regular SBR maybe
