Soon little Alex will be 5 yrs old...

Right now she keeps on telling us she is 5 yrs old already.

Saturday took her out again. I ask her if she wants to take the bus or the MRT, she choose to take the MRT so we went to take the train to town. I wanted to take her to San Francisco Coffee for cake but when we reached here, it was closed. Anyway, just in case you doesn't know where is it, it's at Raffles Place just behind UOB Centre. Maybe it's weekend so it's closed.

Then we walked to Far East Square... Had my lunch there, little Alex didn't eat much. She is more interested in eating her cake more.

Strawberry cheesecake


No one's at the counter, haha....

It wasn't surprised that no one is at the counter cos' it's only about 11am, and there is only a few customers in the store.

After my lunch and little Alex's cake-time, we left and we continue walking... Got no clue where are we heading next. i just walk where my legs take me.

Still got no clue where we are going and we end up at Central Mall. She said she wanted to go and pee, so we went to the toilet. Then we continue walking downwards to City Hall. Little Alex said she wants to eat strawberry. I told her we need to find strawberries before we can eat strawberries. We went to Marina Square, walk a big round there, and end up at Raffles City. In fact I didn't really want to get for her but we still went to Cold Storage @ Raffles City. I tell you, she is so smart. She even can managed to find where the strawberries are, took me by the hand to search for it. And there are all the strawberries... I told her it's rather expensive, can we have the grapes instead? She look at me, then we put the box of strawberries back, choose a box of grapes and hand it to me. I told her that we need to pay for it before we can eat the grapes. She took the box of grapes and half-run half-walk to the cashier and queue up. She told me to queue up at this lane cos' the person in front is going to be done with the purchase. She hand over the grapes to the cashier and give her the $10 I passed to her earlier.

We sit outside Raffles City... she is choosing which grape to eat and which one to feed me.

After our grapes session, I ask her where shall we go next?

She said she wants to go home, and the time is only 4pm... I told her why not we go another place to play, it's still too early to head back home. She says she want to go home, go home!!! Okay, so we went home.

In the train, I let her sit on my lap. I guess she must be really tired cos' she even fall asleep sitting.

She is still sleeping when we got home. I lay her bed for her, just put her down and she wakes up immediately. Then she told us she is having fever, no wonder she wants to go home. And she doesn't want to bathe. I told her that she needs to bathe to bring her temperature down, she doesn't want and she runs and sleep on my mattress. I just grab her into the bathroom and bathe her.

During dinner time, she didn't eat much. In fact for the whole day she didn't eat much.

After dinner I went to take a short nap before going to work. Little Alex came and sleep beside me.. So we got a little chat going on.

Little Alex: after K1 is what"
Me: after K1 is K2 lah
LA: after K2 leh?
Me: is SKII lah..
LA: no!!.. after K2 is Pri 1..
LA: after Pri 1 leh?

LA: momo big already, momo know how to go to Vivocity.
LA: momo buy 4 rice.. one for momo, one for mama, one for yeye, one for papa.

Little Alex is still sleeping so I shall blog a bit before she wakes up and start to disturb me.

I find that she loves to draw pictures when she was supposed to practice in her spellings. Anyway, I snap some pics of her drawings here....








Please dun ask me what did she draw... I got no idea too. I think it's good for her to explore in her own. Kids got no lack of imaginations.

.

When little Alex got full marks for her spellings or 听写, she will come home and show us. She will take out her exercise book and show us the 2/2 and the sticker the teacher give to her. If she gets 1/2, she won't want to show you her exercise book. And when she gets 0/2, then she will hide her exercise book away. When you try to take her exercise book out from her bag, she will run towards you and shout "Stop, cannot see cannot see...." and pushes you away.
.

Yesterday took little Alex out again. Long story short... We went to Orchard Road... City Hall... Marina Square. She keep on whining she wants to eat dessert, so we went around to search for it. At last I told her that we cannot find any nice desserts shop around so why not we go and have cake. So we went to Marina Square...

.

Then I saw Secret Recipes...

Mixed Fruit Yogurt...


Choco Chip Walnut..

Today is Vesak Day, little Alex doesn't need to go to school so I took her out. She was so happy that she doesn't need to go to school today, haha... Children are all like that.
.
So we took a bus there... We are already in the bus when little Alex said she feels like vomiting so I quickly alight from the bus, just in case she really vomited out. The bus is pretty packed with passengers... We alighted at Jurong East and gotta walk quite a distance to the MRT. The Sun is so hot and she keep complaining "hot hot...".
.
We alighted at City Hall, it's time for our lunch and I thought of taking her for some noodles but the shop was no longer there... We ended up at KFC @Funan Centre. After that, we went to Orchard... that is where i initially want to go. Went to ION, went to Louis Vuitton to check out the price for Trevi PM and MM. Only got to know that there is no MM available, only comes in PM and GM. So I left the place and took little Alex to Starbucks. I always frequent the one at Tanglin Mall cos' I get to sit at the couch, haha. We stay there for about an hour before taking little Alex somewhere else.
.
Before I continue with my post, let's just side track and take a look at her handiwork lately.
.




Dun know what is all the drawing all about. Tell her to practice in her spellings and this is what she draw on the book. Sigh.....
.

.

Let's get to our post again...

.

We had our lunch and our coffee break, little Alex wants to have her dessert too. I told her we need to get to Somerset for our dessert, shall we take a bus there? She said "no.. I want to walk". I told her it's very hot and it's quite far, she said she want to walk... so we walk. Well, it should say it's me who walk there cos' half way at Takashimaya she was telling me she wants to sleep. I gotta carry her in my arms. She is now a hefty 15 kg little girl. I went to Meritus Mandarin Hotel for a rest. There are some seats at the shopping mall below where I can rest a while.

.

I managed to get a long couch there, all by myself. Of cos' I am not so selfish to occupy the whole couch by myself, I sit at the corner. There are people who comes and sit beside me, and left, and comes another one. I remember there is this girl who is telling her little brother not to make so much noise cos' 小妹妹 is sleeping, *Shh....*

.

I doesn't know how long I rest there, I get up and went off. Check it out if there is any clothes to get for little Alex... Nope, so I left the place.

.

I walked all the way till City Hall, then I wake little Alex up. She doesn't want to wake up yet but I just don't care. I put her down and she was making a lot of noise. Her hair is messy and I pull her to one side to comb her hair. She continue to make a lot of noise until I told her that we are going to have dessert, then she quiet down.

.

We walked a big round... from Citi link to Marina Square then back to Raffles City (if you know what I mean), and I saw this cool dessert shop @Raffles City.

Took little Alex out last Sunday... Didn't know where to take her cos' she has been to almost all the malls in town area. I think maybe she will like to go to Vivocity cos' it has been ages since we went there. I mean I did went there before but not with little Alex for a long time already.
.
She got 2/2 for her Chinese and English spellings so I promise her to give her a treat and a drink. You cannot bluff her cos' she can remember whatever you promise her...
.


Forget what is the name of this cake... something banana something chocolate...
.
Anyway, it doesn't matter so much now. I find this cake very sweet although it's nice to eat.
.


Saw this armour, so snap a pic of it... Dunno promoting what show or event.
.

.
I side-tracked a bit now.... Posted a back-dated pic.
.
This is a Ford car... I think got like 100 yrs old now... Or maybe not so old lah... I snap this pic oso forget to take a pic of the sign that introduced this car. It was really sunny and hot at that time. The interior is really old and antique, man.
.
.
Ok, back to my post now... Vivocity got nothing much to do window-shopping. There are many ppl but if you got no money, you can't buy anything, right?
.
Then I thought of bringing her to somewhere east side... Initially I plan to take her to the airport (again?!?!) but when the train reached Tanah Merah station, I didn't alight so we went to Tampines. Just at that instant, I was telling myself why not take her to Tampines? Afterall there are 3 shopping malls there.
.
We went to Tampines One as our first stop. That is the damn place where I work in 2008 as a valet during weekends. The basement carpark only got over 200 lots, where got enough? Tampines Mall got over 800 lots and Century Square got over 600 lots. Just after 12pm and the whole carpark is full. I have never been there before shopping, so it was my first time. We walked from this floor to the next floor. Got $900 from the Government for the Election so I buy some new clothes for little momo.
.
We went to Fox cos' there is a promotion there.
.

She choose this top herself. I told her what she like papa to buy for her and she went "missing" only then appear with this top.
.


I told her to get another top cos' if I buy 2 then it will cost $13.90 each. And she choose this one, with high heels shoes.
.

this dress is what I wanted to get for her. I think she need to wear dresses more... The black dress, the white top is I got it from her wardrobe to add on.
.
.
You know, yesterday I was fetching her from school and we were sitting just in front of a shoe shop. Little Alex actually went in and start trying the shoes there. She took them off the shelves and try them on. She even went up to the sales assistant and ask her to let her try this black shoes this white shoes. She even lead the sales assistant by the hand to the other side to try another pair or shoes. The whole scenario is just like what you see in the malls those ladies trying out the shoes. One pair after one pair... I think when she grows up, she will be like those... Now she already shows she is like to buy hair clips and hair bands.

This pic is actually some time ago...
