Finally!… some indication that we are still here!

Well, so i didn’t manage a post before we flew & i also didn’t manage a post while we were in Singapore – so it has been nearly 8x weeks since the last post. A fair bit to write about – so be prepared this is quite a lengthy post.

Let’s talk about the present – the fields are dotted with little white, yellow & blue wild flowers, the yellow Dandelions (spelling?) are out too. The cheery blooms are blooming in full glory! So it is Spring!! It’s quite nice & warm in the afternoons, thot the mornings & nights are still quite cold but i’m hoping that will change quickly. It’s nice to come back to Spring – thot i have been told that it’s a shame to have missed the only major snowfall of the season for this year’s winter.

With Spring comes a little surprise – as it does every year – last year it snowed heavily around Easter time & this year it hailed for all of 5x mins. If u watch the video below very carefully, u will see tiny white balls bouncing off the grass – that’s the tiny hail balls.

We got back about 10 days ago – just got over the jetlag & now trying to settle into our routine again – as always Hubby is away – He’s gone back in the direction of Asia – hahhaa – after just coming back from there  – sigh!

Easter is coming up – so it’s another long weekend – tomorrow is Good Friday – so what are we doing? Nothing much – just going to visit a friend tomorrow & then we’ll have some friends over here for Easter Monday. That’s the “excitment” for now.

So what did we do in Singapore? Well, the usual – meeting up with friends & family & eat & eat & shop & did i mention eat? Singapore is a place well-known for it’s food & shopping for those who have not visited. Ok we did do more than that – check out the following photos & 1x video.

Here’s Tobias trying his hand, for the 1st time, at bowling. i believe that the ball he’s holding is a 8 or 9 pound ball!!

Here’s Tobias going downstairs, in all excitement, to play with his new remote-controlled Smart car.

Here’s Tobias going down a water slide, all by himself. Actually he has been down the big water slide here in Switzerland, at the indoor pool – but i’ve always insisted that i go with him – so he was super happy to be able to go down this small one on his own. He did it over & over again & again.

Tobias also did some “driving”. Something he picked up from GongGong.

Another thing he picked up was “playing” the PS3 – my brother got the new PS3 while we were there & ever since Tobias watched my brother on it – he wakes up each morning, takes his chocolate drink & then runs straight to his uncle’s room to wake him up so he can watch my brother play the PS3.

We also went to the zoo & the bird park – of cos did lots & lots of shopping. Walter took some back with him but i still managed to fill our bag (Tobias shares a bag with me) up to 45kg – hehhehee πŸ˜‰ mostly filled with gifts. Thanks to everyone – esp my mummy, for everything.

We visited the new VivoCity – very over-whelming – huge shopping centre – but the feature that attracted me is the open roof top water play park for kids – unfortunately it rained the day we went so no water play park for us. By the way there is also another new shopping centre called VeloCity – hehhehehe πŸ˜‰ but we didn’t get to that one.

Well, that’s it for now.
