Tho' we did not go away this year for the vacation, we spent a lot of family time rediscovering Singapore, and having fun! Here's a sampling of what we did:
Discovering the Southern Ridges
We started off at Kent Ridge Park, the site of the Pasir Panjang Battle,
N posed next to a tank that was used in the war in 1944!!
We trooped along the Canopy Walk - thru' the rainforest.
Along the way, we saw some birds. Here's a kingfisher:
and a beautiful spider's web.
Little D had it easier than some of us, she was carried a part of the way!
The canopy walk brought us to Hort Park.
(I will write more on the Hort Park in a separate post)
From Hort Park, we made our way pass Alexander Arches, and then to Henderson Waves.
At it's highest point, it was some 74.14m above sea level. Pretty scary, just try not to look down at the road below.
On another day, we made our way to Changi Point.
The lazy charm of the place appealed to me.
Little D was so fascinated when she saw a coconut tree that she decided she wanted a photo.
We saw the fishing boats coming in with the days catch, and the trucks from the restaurants awaiting the day's live seafood.
Of course, the family also made their way to the Singapore Flyer. However, as it was already dark, we did not manage to see as much as we would have liked to.
The kids ended up amusing themselves in other ways.
So, I guess another trip there is in the pipeline!
And like bp said, all kids love to splish, splash, splosh! They kids enjoyed the days spent at the pool near our home.
And of course, we also spent time spent baking:
A doughnut looking chocolate cake.
and some no-bake oreo cheese cupcakes!!
We also tried smiling for the sunkist smile challenge.
Dont reckon we will win any prizes!
I guess that marks the end of our June Vacation activities as school re-opens in a few days time. Yippee!!
