Toy Story 3 27 June 2010

Thanks to aunt ling for the movie vouchers.

Hui was teary and terrified ! She wanna get out of the cinema.
En enjoyed the movie.

I got "permission " to sneak in and out of the movie. I love the ending the most, where Andy gives Woody to Bonnie, and together they play with his toys one last time before he leaves for college.

Pet World Malaysia 25 June2010

Friday 10am
We were at Pet World right when they opened. I thought, at this early hour, exhibitors might be setting up stalls and there was nothing much to see. True enough, some were in the midst of setting up and preparing.. and En Hui were keen in watching them working. RM5 for adult and RM2 for child. We left around 12pm.

Some of the puppies and Persian cats.

Left- two pathetic black swans in a congested tub.
Right- Hui saw the worker hang the fish one after another and didn't want to move away.

Left- Ayam Serama.  Right- Pet Grooming Competition.

Yahoo Messenger 24 June 2010

Thursday night.
While En was replying an email,  her dad "beep" her on yahoo messenger from work.  She told him to wait as she was replying an email to her aunt.

When she finished, she quickly switched to yahoo messenger instant message with her dad.
She typed " I am back". But there was no reply.

She waited and eventually sent a sad &  crying emoticon.

A moment later, she called him on the phone. "I am back and why you didnt reply! "

When the convesation has ended, she ran back to her screen and happily chatting away with dad and LOL.

Fun @swimming pool 24 June 2010

Thursday morning.
It has been a long time since I last captured photos of them at the pool.

En wanted a boat for her 6th birthday. Now she said 'I need two oars !'
Hui progressed to the adult pool at ease. Kicking and twirling with her float.

Take photo? Don't want ! 24 June 2010

En to Hui ( walking to the lift ) : May I take a photo of you? (En was holding a camera)
Hui: NO.
En: I want to take photo !!
Hui: NOoooooo.
En: Pleaseeee.
En: sob sob. pleasseee

Me: En wants to take photo of Hui. Hui doesn't want to be photographed. ehm.. what shall we do?

En: (silent) ... I know, I won't take it now.. (asking Hui) May I take it later, near the car?
Hui: Yes.

Me: * phew*
Hui happily posed for En on the ground floor. :)

En, the image consultant cum fashion designer. Poor penguin ! LOL

Makeshift wash basin 23 June 2010

Wednesday am.
When I visited the master bathroom in the morning, aaaaaahhhhhhhhh

I asked ' ehm.. what is this? '. En said 'we are going to brush teeth here, with you'.

She has shifted the toothbrushes, hand towel and mirror from the common bathroom.

While I was brushing my teeth, Hui came in and brushed her teeth. She got a cup & toothpaste from under the bamboo basket (below the mirror). Then, she fetched water from the blue basin that was filled with water. She gave me a cheeky look and brushed her teeth.

Holy cow, the water was spit into the same basin.

Singapore Science Centre 18 June 2010

Friday am. World - Acclaimed Singapore Science Centre, Jurong East Mrt. It is made up of 12 exhibition galleries (indoor) ! We have been there 3 times and have yet to explore all the exhibits. On Singapore Science Centre brochure, it said " Even if you spend a mere 5 minutes on each exhibit, it will still take you at least seven days to see all we have to offer here! ". Holy cow! Abundant of thought-provoking experiences.

Public transport in Singapore is such a breeze. :) 

Left- A long walk from aunt's home to MRT station.
Right- Chua Chu Kang station, where we stayed.

Left- Both know how to use the ez-link card now. " tit tit "
Right- After much observation, at the 3rd visit, Hui tried this Eye & Mind-boggling exhibit. Ever wonder how you look like without a body? mwa ha ha ha.

Left- A new exhibit ! It is only a 3 months gap since the last visit at Science Centre, they have put up some new exhibits. *wow*
Right- another new exhibit. Interactive 3D eye glass.

En told me the picture moves. If you stay longer, it does !

Left- A number of drinkable water cooler available.
Right- a new after image play of Michael Jackson.

The staircase area is filled with illusion posters to tease your senses.

The library. Hui asked me how does the pulley system on the car toy set run. I couldn't get it work & so I thought it is not working. En took over and figure out how it works. Gosh!
Left- The selection of science related magazines available! *wowo*
Right- Children section.

At "Climate Change" gallery. CO2 cycle.

We took the 1015pm night train back to KL. It was a bad choice. Train departed from Tanjung Pagar and custom check is done here. The immigration check is at Woodland, approx an hour later. By the time, the train arrived at Woodland, both EnHui were sound asleep !  Supper was served at Johore. I told the attendant to pass the breakfast as well so I can have a peaceful sleep after that (after the bad experience on the first leg). Train arrived at 7am, KL sentral.

Was I exhausted, cold & hungry? The fried rice is super delicious with a breakfast hot Milo.
