Living with Children - Life is what happens right now

It's 3am in the morning.

Little Fella had just taken another dose of paracetamol to keep his fever in check. (please get well soon little boy!) and I'm having difficulty getting back to sleep again so what did I do?.....

Well, time to update the blog! Ha!

Time really just whizzes past and its been another month plus since my last update. This blog posting is tough! Nevertheless I will try and continue to update as often as I can....

Came across this write up in the latest Ikea family news catalogue and realised that it really strikes a chord in me. Here's an excerpt:

Children want to spend more time with their parents. It's a wish that doesn't come with any requirements. All time spent together has the same value. A visit to an amusement park isn't worth more than hanging out together in the living room, just enjoying being close as a family.Very often, the most ordinary things are often the most memorable that we carry with us for the rest of our lives. And the most precious thing in a home isn't the sofas or the computers or the new kitchen - its the time together and that's what counts. Time is valuable. But time together is priceless.     

Very well written indeed!

Here's some random pics taken from mid-July to mid-Oct 2013.

Random snapshots May-June 2013

Been lazy busy lately and thus is lagging behind in terms of updates. Got to play catch-up for now... Here's some pics, in random order, taken during May and June 2013.

The pics with Little Fella on the glider was his first try-out in the park. Now 3 months down the road, he's a real pro at it and even daddy has difficulties keeping up with him on foot, ha!

Capella Sentosa

Had a wonderful 3 days 2 nights stay at the Capella hotel as part of Drama Mama's birthday celebration during July. (think its becoming part of a tradition...)
Ahhhh........ Capella capella.... what can I say.... Be warned! Once you have stayed here, every other hotel pales in comparison!
Well, let the pictures do the talking...   =)

View from our room, nice!

The bathtub sure looks inviting...

His & Her basins

First thing to do, try out the bathtub!   =)

Now can anyone tell me who is this little kid??

This pic always gets us laughing away...

This Little Fella sure knows how to enjoy himself!

In-room service. Looks good?

My two Precious

Focus focus...

Blowing out the candle flame carefully

Tata! One more pic before cake cutting

Always time for a family portrait   =)

One of the pools, the hotel have 3 different pools.

A kids' wading pool just nice for Little Fella!

Enjoying the experience

Hunk in the making?

Snorkelling next? 

The view from the hotel room was top-notched and the room itself has a well laid-out design along with comfy beds. Throughout the staycation, we lazed around in the room whenever we wanted, went to the beach for some sandplay, swimmed in the spacious pool, ordered room service and dined at Vivocity during one of the nights. We were greeted with smiles everywhere we go and the hotel's service staffs were attentive yet not intruding on the privacy of its guests.

There's really nothing to be complained about except for the fact that a new hotel standard has been set yet again and the little issue of discovering that Little Fella is not used to sleeping anywhere except on his own beloved bed at home, it sure wasn't the case during our last staycation. Now how to get him to sleep when we travel overseas? Hmmm....
