Hello Mr Chaplin!

Had an early birthday celebration for the daddy today. The cake was an Awfully Chocolate fudge cake and as usual, he was his messy self as he gobbled slice after slice of the cake. In a moment of inspiration, I decided to swipe some fudge on his lip and there he is! Mr Charlie Chaplin!

The boys didn't have swimming class today and so we went down to East Coast Park to cycle. The original plan was to get them the four-wheel car-like vehicles but we found out that they didn't rent that anymore. So we put them on kiddy bikes with training wheels and got ourselves on a bike each too. We rode for about an hour and throughout the entire hour, there was just yelling at the boys (especially Kiefer) to keep their bikes straight and not crash into anybody!

Sty in the eye

Still as rascally even with the bothersome sty.
The sty started as just a small little reddish inflammation when we were going to HK in June. Kieran had it too but Kieran's one subsided after a week's application of an antihistamine. This little fella's didn't and it eventually developed into a full blown sty about a month ago.

The sty already looked pretty small in this picture. It actually became much larger in the last couple of days but it simply refused to pop. After a $100 instructions were given advice at an ophthalmologist clinic yesterday, the sty finally popped and partially drained out. We repeated the hot compress today and more pus came out. I think it's finally going to heal. Poor little babe.

That's him at the ophthalmic clinic getting his eye checked. On the bright side, the doctor said that he has very good eyesight. And that the sty didn't affect his vision and we could just leave it to s.l.o.w...l.y heal. She suggested using hot compress, which worked wonderfully! At least now he will look good on our photos when we are in Melbourne!

Beautiful sunbird

Saw this beautiful sunbird while I was at a nursery yesterday. I hurriedly dug my iPhone out of my bag to snap a picture of it. I daren't go too near in case it flew away. Zoomed in on the phone and thus a rather grainy picture. But it was beautiful nonetheless. The pretty yellow bird against the bright yellow flowers. Beautiful.

Hermès - The Gift of Time

Brought the kids (and cousins) to the Hermès Gift of Time exhibition at the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station. It is a small exhibit with installations meant to define time.
