More than a year has passed.........

since we came back to singapore. and although lots of things have happened, one of the more significant milestones would be kaira attending Kindergarten Year 1 back in Singapore.

From the initial resistant, crying kaira who loathes the idea of doing work to the Kaira who now loves going to class and doing the worksheets (yes, she apparently asks the teacher for worksheets to do), it has been a long road to happiness!!!

But thank God for his grace and love, that she has adapted very well and she loves her teachers to bits, not to mention her friends.

This week kind of bring to a  closure this eventful year (although she's not on holiday yet) -- as there was the parent-teacher session and the school year end concert.  And even as i watched her performed on stage, i am so glad to see a happy and well adjusted child. who enjoys her school activities tremendously and looks forward to going to school to meet her teachers and frens..

The year end concert was her first on-stage experience and she was extremely excited and looking forward to it!!   She was very serious about her dance steps and was always practicing the moves!i love it when she's serious about something -- feels like she is all grown up. :))

may next year be as good as this year, if not better! after which, primary 1  is a different ball game altogether ;p

Jurong bird park

What an eventful few days.... Sunday was night safari and Tuesday being a public holiday we brought kaira to the bird park.

Thanks to hubbie's good idea of buying a 2park entrance ticket!!

I have not been to the bird park for years n it is kaira's first.... And it was a pleasant surprise.... I liked it quite abit... For a few reasons:

1. It's smaller than the zoo so the pace can be more leisurely and yet one covers almost the entire park. Not so tiring - unlike the zoo ... I always feel so tired after a day out at the zoo..... ;p heehee.

2. There's less crowded and more places to sit and rest. Again, it feels more leisurely which I prefer.

3. I love the Lory feeding aviary. Much more than any other animal feeding! Heehee.

It was a nice outing :)) hope to be back soon!!

Night safari

Decided to bring kaira to the night safari in Sunday evening.

Have been procrastinating as I m always concern that it will be too late for her as she sleeps ard 9+pm daily or even earlier... And the main problem with her is that she still gets cranky when she is tired n sleepy... Plus after a night out at the night safari sure have to bathe and what have u after we get home.... Which means a greater challenge!!!

Well, she did enjoy the safari but as expected it was a difficult end to the night... Despite her taking a short afternoon nap and lots of prep abt late nite through the day.

Wellz .... She has to learn I suppose....

It was a nice evening... But very crowded!! Good thing though majority of the crowd seemed happy to go around on the tram... Leaving a very small population including us who were walking the trails...... At times it seemed we were the only ones walking!! Quite amazing considering it was very crowded. And if we didn't walk would have missed out a fair bit ... Hehehe

No pictures as it was nite ;p

Paper marbling

Brought kaira to the STPI again today for a children's workshop.... Had no idea what we were going to do till we reached there!

And what an eye opener for me n her! Hehehe.

Water mixed with water soluble glue and Paint plus some creativity n we had such lovely creations!!

No picture of the end result as they were left to dry n we left early for her art class.

Coincidentally, we met her art class teacher-founder at the workshop.

There were more than 10 kids and only 3 Singaporeans. Where r all the Singaporean kids??!??
