Besides meeting with friends over at Eio’s place & having a good time visiting & catching up with some wonderful people in our lives, followings are some activites in which Eios did over this super long weekend to celebrate & commemorate Singapore’s golden jubilee.
Firstly, Em came home on Thursday with the hats, gifts, puzzles & SG50 bag etc that he made in school. El saw & wanted to make the hat & bag. We used recycled materials to make similar stuff for her. Phew…
We planned to visit the Art & Science museum since its FOC over this long weekend but the queue is simply too long at MBS. We are there before the opening time at 10am. Em was disappointed. We shall visit the museum another day! Shifting our target to another place of interest- Singapore Flyer.
Mr & Mrs Eio has been to the Singapore Flyer for at least twice. So this time is simply for the Eio kids.
The entrance fees is S$33 for 1 adult. For Singaporean, 1 child enters free with every adult. Child below 3 years old enters free so El enters FOC. Initially, Mr Eio wanted to bring Eio kids to the flyer while Mrs Eio can have a cuppa. But the kiddos voted for her to join them. Hence Mr Eio got a good deal again. He chilled out somewhere out there…
After awhile El is cranky. Mrs Eio passed her hp to em & told him to “self-entertain”. Lol. Great timing! We saw the Black Knights’ performance while we were on the flyer. Em took these 2 photos below plus a selfie.
Eios visited Mr Eio’s classmate & his newborn baby after the flyer. Em’s totally excited with this new game he learnt from one of Mr Eio’s classmate’s son- Eraser battle.
On National Day, the Eios watched the proclaimation at 9am. Eio kids were still in their pyjamas.
They sang the National anthem & said the pledge.
Eios visited Mrs Eio’s 85 years old grandpa & suggested to fetch him over for dinner & watch NDP together. Well… But he insisted to stayed at his own home…
Eios played more traditional games like chapteh, paper ball etc… El “invented” a new game. Shall share more next time round.
The Eios watched the NDP parade. Em said,”I know the Prime minister Lee Hsien Loong. I saw him at GDOP! “😊 He told Mrs Eio,”Mr Tony Tan is my president you know?”
Singing National Anthem & saying pledge again… El refused to put down her hands. Lol.
Eios managed to see the fireworks at Tampines Central from their front balcony. Everyone’s excited. Mrs Eio hopes that putting all the excitement aside, we’ll be evermore grateful, continue to stay united & remember those who are less fortunate.
Blessed Golden Jubilee Singapore!
