my nephew turns 2!
above: my SIL parents made really good beehoon and curry chicken! Her mum also fried some cuttlefish balls, nuggets and french fries for all the kids. My MIL bought a whole duck to share plus bunches of rambutans and almond gingko for dessert.
It was a small family gathering but everyone had fun, especially the kids.
The pretty ELMO cake and my confinement nanny who is taking care of baby Julius!

Vivocity has just revamped their playground with more rubberised flooring, trampolined zones and a built in slide made of concrete which I though was unsafe! It's so hard and not kid friendly at all. Firstly the gradient is too steep and makes kids going down too fast and almost no time to brake when they land. Plus if they slide off course, they might hit their little heads against the sides of the slide which is so hard!!!
I think Vivocity should rethink about their slide. Not only did I find this slide too hard and unfriendly, i think the swings are ridiculous too! There's a chain hooked from the middle of the swing to the bottom of the floor. I understand that this is a safety precaution so that the kids do not "over swing" but it was almost impossible to swing at all!!!
The only parts of the playground that my children enjoyed are the rotating eggs in red and the trampoline zone.

others, he just didn't have the "strength" or motor skills to hold it for long. Others, i guess it was just not the right size for him to put into his little mouth.
so it was only Tommee Tippee that won above all. So from then on, I only used that for my second child James and now Jade who loves it! and finds it so easy to grab and chew.

but Jules saw it and wanted to play with it but I just told him that it was for mei mei and he left it at that. Thank goodness.

have you tried McDonald's latest burger?- NASI LEMAK! I know it has lots of mixed reviews about how the sambal chilli is not spicy enough or the taste of nasi lemak is not being brought out strong enough, or simply that it was too hyped up as it was totally sold out in some outlets.
i really like it! I like it that it taste like nasi lemak to me. Love the tender chicken and fried egg, topped with chilli sambal, crunchy cucumbers...and I'm not a fan of bandung (rose syrup) but this time round, frizzy bandung actually worked for me!!!
the coconut pie is a hit and miss. I don't think it's very "singaporean"....perhaps durian pie might be more of a local flavour?
well all in all, i thought it was a really great idea that food outlets are introducing all these local dishes because of the approaching National Day! Hope this gets to happen annually and I really look forward to creative foods like these!
