Holiday Activities

There're only 2 weeks left of the long school break. How time flies! We didn't plan for any vacation this year end -- no budget and no time (PaPa's very busy). :-( Apart from playing tv games EVERYDAY, doing a lot of colouring and minimal writing, and revising with jie jie (mainly on BM and Maths), these are some of our activities so far.

1) Visited Petrosains StreetSmart Exhibition in KLCC.

2) Did science experiments. (a) Stole the idea from My Little Sprouts! and built balloon jets. (b) Grew dinosaurs in water.

3) Played and had a good workout at Critter Land.

4) Water play at home, in the rarely used 3-ring pool.

5) Had a great time wasting money at Sunway Pyramid's mini amusement park. I think their favourite is the bumper car.

6) Jie jie had her first try at ice-skating. We got her an instructor to coach her for 30 minutes (fee = RM60). She was taught how to balance herself, get up after falling down and of course, to skate. Not much she can learn and master in 30 minutes. At least she's mastered how to walk (on normal floor) with the skates. :-) She really enjoyed herself. Too bad it's quite far for us, if not, I'd let her take lessons. Never mind, we'll try to allocate time for ice-skating whenever we go to Sunway Pyramid. I'd love to try it too.

7) Watched Rapunzel: A Tangled Tale. As usual, didi was there just for the popcorn. He could not concentrate fully on the show. After he's finished his popcorn, he started to disturb me -- asked for more snacks, sat on my lap. Luckily he didn't roam around. I started warning him a few days before the outing. If he wants to follow me to the cinema and eat popcorn, he mustn't walk around or disturb me after he's finished his popcorn. Well, he kept half of his promise, ok lah. :D

Wow, your girl enjoyed ice skating in such young age, bravo! Keep her interest up whenever possible, it's such a nice sport!

Your boy likes popcorn? HIGH 5 with Juan Juan, she loves it to bits, and always pester me to make some with her! ^-^

Another 2 weeks to go, happy holiday!

Yep, two more weeks to go before falling back into routine. This school holidays are mostly filled with makan makan, swimming lessons and jalan jalan activities. Besides that, we also spend some time everyday revising Maths and Chinese.

My boy was tempted to try ice-skating when were there the other day. Maybe on our next trip there. :)

Nice activities lah. Wah..jie jie tried ice skating for the first time..so brave. Gwen is too young for that.

Gwen didn't concentrate much on the Rapunzel either. When I asked her what was the movie about, she said "Don't know". -_-

Hi Slavemom, wow, you sure having fun time with the kids.
Good to know your kid learning to ice skate.
Here in Canada kids practically learn to skate before walking.
Have a great week and the best of Christmas wishes to you and family, Lee.
