This September holiday came and went without much trace as the election fever devoured both the time of the Mr and mine. The poor girls were so looking forward to the break only to find out that the time we had for them, especially daddy’s, was very very limited due to official duties.
Nonetheless the Mr still made it a point to find little pockets and fragments of time to spent with us, although I must say that kids activities this holiday seemed a little limited, no thanks to the haze, and most came with a hefty price.
Here are some flashbacks of what we did:
1) We visited the Dazzling Cafe for dinner FINALLY!
Toast was yummy. Mentaiko fries too but it came with a suspicious looking hair turned our appetite off.
2) DC Cafe
Because the Mr only had that little time for us, after having dinner, we went to DC cafe to check out and we ate again. Did not take much pictures because it was pretty disappointing for a themed restaurant…over-priced and no value-for-money.
3) Nintendo Wii
5) Impromptu decision to go ALIVE Museum
The girls wanted to sing but all of us were nursing bad throats, so we ‘burnt’ some money for 30 minutes of fun. Yep…that’s the amount of attention the girls had for the place and they were the ones who wanted to go. They merely chose some exhibits to snap pictures with.
6) $5 Dinosaur activity book fun
So much more worth it than the ALIVE museum. The Mr spent the evening doing the poster with them while the mummy went for a late night meeting with volunteers. The stickers were lousy but sticky tape saved the day.
7) Another value-for-money fun activity
8) Monopoly event at Parkway Parade
9) Art Science Museum
Visited the Art Science Museum for the Dreamworks animation and the The Deep exhibition. I think the girls and us enjoyed The Deep more than the Dreamworks one which was too technical IMO. Too bad The Deep was too dark for us to snap photos and I wished we had more time to explore.
