School Holiday Activity I

Last Thursday, SIL (the driver) and I brought the kids and our maids to 1-Utama. We went to Kizsports first, hoping to avoid the after-lunch crowd. During our visit the previous school holidays, there were a lot of people after 1pm. But surprisingly, there weren't many kids that day.

XY was a bit timid, wanted me to accompany her on the slides. So I had to climb up very high and come down the twisting slide. Boy, that was really scary! I nearly had a heart attack! Good thing I was holding on to her. If not, I would've cried out (so chicken hor hehehe).

CE spent most of the time at the play area for children under 3 years old. But he was very unfocused. He wanted to play everything, at the same time. He touched a push-car, within 10 seconds, he was touching the rocking toy. Within the next 10 seconds, he went off to another thing. The only thing that interests him the most is the playhouse with slide. He likes to turn the steering wheel. I brought him to play at the big slide but he wasn't too interested. He didn't stay long in the ball pit, unlike the previous trip. As for CH, he was also interested in the big slides, apart from the toys at the small play area.

While the kids were playing (accompanied by Kakaks), the mommies were resting (and got a bit bored), freezing (air-cond was very cold) and hungry. After 2 hours of playing, we went for lunch at Wong Kok Char Chan Teng. After CH finished his lunch, he fell asleep. We decided to go for a movie (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull) since CH's already asleep and I was quite sure CE's going to nap soon too. We were in luck as the timing was just right. We bought the tickets and popcorn, got in, then the movie started. CE was very cooperative although it was his first time in a cinema. I just hugged him and he slept till the show was almost over. XY (her 2nd movie) was happy helping herself to the box of popcorn, munching away. She even laughed at some hilarious scenes.

It was a really nice break, to watch a movie on the big screen. I've not stepped into a cinema for 5 years (since XY was born). As for the story line, it was nothing superb. But I love to see Harrison Ford. Although he's quite 'aged', he's still very 'yau yeng' (manly). hehehe

Before going home, I stopped by Mothercare. So my hunt for the Tommee Tippee Roll & Go Bib is over (thanks Shireen, for the information). Unfortunately, CE doesn't want to wear it. He prefers the cloth type (which he's been using all these while). He'll pull the bib off or push it away every time I try to put it on for him. I even asked jie jie to wear it during meal time, hoping he'll follow her, but he totally ignored us. Sigh... I wonder if he'll take a liking to it later. Anyway, can always keep it for my future nieces/nephews.

Hi Slavemom, always wonderful and fun to be with your kids, their laughter, their curiousity of everything around them makes your day.
One of the most beautiful sounds in the world is a baby's laugh.
Have fun with your kid.
Pssssst, when next baby coming, ha ha. Lee.

That's a wonderful way to start your hols!=)

Know what you mean it's not easy to go to the movies with lil ones... My little boy isn't so little anymore, but he still can't sit still through a whole show. Maybe we'll catch Indiana Jones later when it comes out in DVD!;p
