As I have mentioned in June, we can't go swimming on National Day this year because I am still not totally healed from my operation from less than a month ago. I had brought it forward and we went during the holidays instead. As a replacement, I chose to revisit Funan Mall with the kids, as I had wanted to when I went there for my birthday celebration.
But first, I filled up the bellies of my family with lots of Hello Kitty pancakes for breakfast. I made so much that there was even enough for the next day!
At the new mall, the children really enjoyed themselves with all the high-tech and interesting elements. They had a ball at the Gong Cha's ball pit (pun totally intended LOL), tried their hands at the VR game Beat Saber and I even managed to clinch two plushies for my girls at the crane machine using less than $20's worth of tokens! Needless to say, they loved the swing at the rooftop garden, just as I expected. I also bought Joram a foam airplane that comes with colourful flashing lights to his absolute delight.
Look at what the kids did at the ball pit...
We ended the day with our traditional Pizza Hut dinner sitting in front of the TV watching the NDP. It has by now become automatic for everyone to stand up and sing the national anthem and say the pledge without any prompting. Even before the show came to an end, the little ones scampered to the balcony for a glimpse of the real-life fireworks which we could see from afar. May the children never grow tired of doing this every single year as a family. *wistful*
