Last Stop : Plaisir and Surrounding

While daddy was out, we spent our time relaxing at oma's house and explore the surrounding. We went to Commercial centre where they were Ikea, Toy's R us, Auchan (like Giant supermarket) and we went to Chateau du Plaisir and its forest where King of France went for hunting last time.



Third Stop : Versailles Garden

The next stop was Versailles Garden, we wanted to bring Richie to see the Antoinette farmyard, unfortunately we took the wrong gate which closed and we rushed for the time so we only managed to see the garden, some sheeps by riding buggy again.

Second Stop : Exploring Paris

Even though we have explored Paris landmarks before, we'd love to visit again like Notredame, Eiffel Tower,  Arc De Triomphe, etc
Started with La Defense, we haven't been there before and since our train passed by, we decided to take a look and voila, there's christmas market waiting for us too.

Then, the next day, we visited Notredame, eiffel Tower, Arc De Triomphe and Champ Elysee.

First stop : Disneyland Paris

Our first journey was Disneyland Paris, we booked 3D2N at Santa Fe Hotel, Disneyland Paris.
The hotel and rooms were Mexico Style and we had 3 days ticket to both park : Disney park and walt disney studio.
On the first day of our arrival, we were very tired so once we checked in we went to sleep to recharge energy for the next day.
On the second day, it was drizzling and we still went ahead with our plan to explore Disney Park.
The Park was huge and we couldn't finish within a day though. We had fun there even though it's cold because of the rain 

On the last day of our visit, we went to Walt Disney Studio and spent half day there, the park was little smaller than Disney Park and the weather was nice too eventhough it's drizzling for about an hour.
Richie had great time there and he enjoyed most meeting Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Pluto and he's so brave taking picture alone with those characters.

Winter Wonderland in Paris (2 - 12 December 2011)

We went to Paris early christmas this year. It was wonderful and fun holiday.
It was all starting on 1st December when we flied midnite to Paris.
Richie was asleep on the way to the airport and woke up just before boarding.
He had 6 hours sleep out 14 hours journey and he's not cranky at all, he munched when he had nothing to do in the plane hehe...
And when we landed, he slept again for 1.5 hours until we were waiting for our baggage

We stayed at mommy's aunt place in suburb Paris and we took more than 2 hours journey with train and carried our heavy baggage, fortunately there were many nice people in Paris helped us without our asking. They really cared about mom and kid particularly.

To be continued

Playing with mega blocks

Today we don't plan to go anywhere 'cos mommy has stomach pain, so we play indoor.
Since Richie is bored with his old toys, mommy accompanied him to play with mega blocks.
Well, he didn't really know what to do with mega blocks, so mommy gave him some examples where he could participate too.
Mommy created motorbike where he could ride and used his imagination...then mommy created chair cum throne where he could sit there like a king hehe...and lastly, mommy created tower bridge where he suddenly picked his long bus and started imagine and created story on his own hehe...

Here's some of mommy's creations

Three musketeers

Yesterday, we visited Darell's house cos Kael and his mom also came to Singapore and we wanted to meet with our kiddos too.
Three of them were so well behaved, perhaps they met only 1 hour so no toys fighting and each of them played with different toys.
Hopefully we can meet up again and play together



Love playing keyboard

Like mother like son, Richie also loves playing music instrument than singing, especially keyboard.
Mommy bought second hand keyboard from friend for practising and unwind. But end up, Richie uses it more often than me hehe...
Almost every morning, we play together, and this is the video that mommy captures today when he tries to sing and play the wheel on the bus

Visiting Farm for the first time (26 oct 2011)

Mommy run out ideas where to bring Richie besides parks so mommy just google farm and found some farms in Singapore.
So we visited Farmart Center in Sungai Tengah during Deevapali holiday.
It's near our house too perhaps only 10 mins drive but the place is like countryside, and many farms around there like chicken farm, vegetable farm etc.

When we arrived, we were welcomed with many retail shops that sold fishes, pets, plants etc and we needed to go in further and found some pets farm inside the cages.
We saw turtles, bulfrogs, parrots and other birds, goats, rabbits, fishes (catfish) and we can feed them too.
So Richie feed goat with spinach and rabbit with carrot, he's so excited and whenever the goat ate the spinach he would clap his hands to cheer it up haha...
These are some photos and video taken

Great Progress in toilet training

25 months Richie has been doing great in toilet training. His sense and urge to pee and poo have developed well.
Now before going to do "business" he will tell mommy first eventhough he's saying both in the same word " eek ".
So no diapers on the day, only night time.
The only thing that he still doesn't want to do is poo in the toilet pad. aiyahhh..
But it's okay, the day will come soon when mommy doesn't need to buy any diapers.

Mommy bought him Thomas Briefs instead of training pants 'cos it's cheaper and got his favorite characters.
Well done Boy !
