Singapore Food Festival 2010

Debbie @ Clarke Quay

Brought the children to the Singapore Food Festival. The theme was Discover the treasures of Singapore Chinese Dialect food. There were many other activities like enjoying mouth-watering bites served in a tingkat (food carrier) from different Singapore Chinese dialects on a boat while you take a relaxing cruise along the Singapore River.

We walked down the Food Street and couldn't resist munching on kueh tu-tu, local and peranakan kueh and kong ba bao from Westlake... Yum Yum!

Promised Denise that we will go back again for River Cruise. Maybe National Day, my birthday, or September school holiday...:)

Art Garden: Children's Season @ Singapore Art Museum

The Singapore Art Museum hosted its inaugural Children's Season. Young people were introduced to contemporary art in an interactive, supportive and fun family environment. The entire SAM at 8 Queen Street building was transformed into magical art gardens showcasing artist projects and artworks inspired by nature. Selected for their imagination and interactivity, these displays were accompanied with captions to engage young visitors with the art works. Activity sheets inspired by the art works enhanced the children's learning experience. Young visitors can also participate in a series of artists' workshops and enjoy short film screenings.

Last Friday, I brought Densie and Debbie there. In line with Night Festival 2010, from 7.30pm till the wee hours of 2am, all the Museums in Singapore were open for free admission.

The kids had a lot of fun playing with their friends from W30. Colouring, short film screenings, art and crafts and simply running around... :)

I Won A Bobbi Brown Hamper!

Received an email from Women's Weekly last Monday. Thinking that it was another advertorial letter, I ignored it. This week when I was clearing my mailbox, I decided to download the content. To my surprise, I won for myself a Bobbi Brown hamper worth $250 in a SMS contest. Hmm... I only read Women's Weekly when I am in a salon or waiting in some clinics. Honestly, I vaguely remember joining a contest.

Collected my prize yesterday :)

What a "spread"! It contains 1 Lip-Liner, 2 Lip Gloss Compact, 1 Limited Edition Lip Compact, 2 Long-Wear Cream Eye Shadow and 1 Pot Rouge For Lips and Cheeks.

Thank you Women's Weekly!

Debbie's 3rd Birthday

(The first 2 photos were taken with my BB)

We had a simple celebration for Debbie in school. Just watched Toy Story 3 and she requested for a Toy Story cake. So we ordered an ice-cream cake from Swensens.

Had simple cake-cutting session during lunch time. Gave out goodies-bags to the children and that's it! :)

(These photos were taken from S90; pieced together using Photoscape. Trust me, the photos are clearer than these)

Went to Sakae Sushi for lunch on Saturday. We asked her to order whatever she wanted. She chose a Fire Engine Kids Meal.

After lunch, we brought her to buy her birthday present. She chose a Wooden Alphabet Set from Mothercare. During the week, she also received presents from our friends! Thanks for loving our little Debbie!

Sold our 1.5 year old Sony Cybershot on Ebay. Decided that it is too bulky for me; I rather take pictures with my BB instead. The pictures were also not fantastic (sorry to Sony fans).

Visited John 3:16 Photo Supplies last week and was extremely satisfied with their customer service. Shop was crowded with customers and many returning ones. The owner Sam, addressed many by names and gave useful tips and recommendation to the customers.

I wanted something compact which I can also just pick and shoot. Excellent pictures, especially when it comes to moving children :)

Finally.... TA-DA! We bought a Canon Powershot S90. I must say, I am very happy with the buy. Even my children can take sharp pictures with this camera! Just celebrated Debbie's 3rd birthday. Will post the pictures later.
