创意诗歌朗诵比赛

Some time back, I was selected with some of my other classmates, to represent my class for 创意诗歌朗诵比赛.  It was held on Wednesday lunch time, and parents were invited to attend the event.

So during lunch time, Daddy and Mummy made their way down to my school to see how I fare during the competition.


There were 5 classes of P1 taking part, and 7 classes of P2 taking part.  Daddy quickly videoed my performance (the middle one is me !!!)

And after all the teams had performed, the 3 judges made their recommendation ... and my class was the CHAMPION !!!! In fact, I told my classmates that we got the first prize (杨老师 announced the word 冠军) but none of my classmates believed me (we were the last to be called to receive the prize).  So I thought I was wrong.  Went to confirm with Daddy and Mummy .... haha.

After the prize presentation, Daddy and Mummy had to rush back to work since lunch time was almost over.

Was a pretty good experience for me.  In fact, the exposure in Pat's Schoolhouse helped me to be very comfortable at the stage.  Daddy and Mummy commented that I did much better than some of the P2 students !!! Haha

Cedric's Birthday Party

Sunday was Cedric's birthday party.  In fact, he was supposed to have his party 2 weeks back, but unfortunately, he was down with HFMD !!! And he is only 1 year old !!!! Must be really painful for him.

We had fun at the Little Elves indoor playground at West Coast Plaza.  Brought 表妹 along since Daddy and Mummy have to babysit her while 舅舅 and 舅母 were busy with their stuff.

Singing the birthday song for the birthday boy !!!

When it was about 2 pm, and time for 表妹 to go home and take her afternoon nap, I told Daddy and Mummy that I want to continue playing at the party.  So Auntie Chiew Eng kindly agreed to bring me back once the party was over ...

Happy Birthday Cedric !!!

Art and Craft at IMM

On Sunday, we went to IMM to walk around.  Since the weather was pretty hot and humid, we decided to give the playground a miss, and instead went to some art and craft.

I chose to do some painting, while 表妹 wanted to do some sand art.

Overnight Stay at 爷爷 and 奶奶 Place

I did not go to school on  Thurs and Fri, since the 2 days were PSLE oral examination.  So we had to do e-learning at home.  Since Daddy and Mummy had to work, they brought me to 爷爷 and 奶奶 place so that I can do my e-learning and 爷爷 and 奶奶 could take care of me.

Daddy and Mummy managed to convince me to stay over at 爷爷 and 奶奶 place on Thurs night so that I did not need to wake up early on Fri.  And I agreed since I could sleep at 10 pm.  And when Daddy and Mummy went down on Fri for dinner and to bring me home, I told them that I did not want to follow them home !!! Wanted to stay at 爷爷 and 奶奶 place !!! Haha. 

So 2 fun nights in a row ... yippee !!! And I managed to teach 爷爷 how to play Uno

Asian Civilization Museum

Over the long weekend, Uncle Telang and Auntie Winnie brought me along with Joel and Camille to the Asian Civilization Museum.  Daddy and Mummy were busy so did not go along.

And in the evening back home, when Daddy and Mummy asked me how was my trip, I showed them all the photos that I have taken with my camera .... as they say, pictures paint a thousand words.  Unfortunately, blur pictures tell no words at all .... haha.  Most of my pictures were so blur that Daddy and Mummy could not make out what I was taking.

So Daddy chose some of the better photos to upload here .... and Daddy decided he must teach me how to focus using a camera.

















And a treat from Uncle Telang and Auntie Winnie at the end of the outing. Yummy yummy

National Museum Outing

Since we had nothing to do over the long holiday, Daddy and Mummy decided to bring me to the Singapore National Museum to take a look and take part in some of the activities.

Upon reaching the museum, we took a card to go around the museum to collect stamps as we took part in the activities.

First activity : kumpong childhood games ...

Then we went to create our own 3D kumpong craft work

And using a red piece of paper, I folded my own samsui hat, and put on this pokka dot dress.  Don't I look like a young samsui lady ???
 

After which, we went to the Singapore History Gallery, and learnt how Singapore transformed over the years, including going through the Japanese Occupation period.  Have been to the National Museum before when I was younger, but now I am able to appreciate and understand more.
 
An enriching day at the  National Museum !!!

Morning Fun at West Coast Park

After 2 rounds of practising my cycling at the void deck, Daddy and Mummy decided to bring me to West Coast Park to ride my bike.  Since Joel and Camille were also free on National Day, we decided to go together.

Had breakfast at MacDonalds ... yummy yummy.

Joel and I rode our bikes and we dashed off and our parents could not catch up with us.  In the end, they just kept walking in our directions, until we made an U-turn back.  Daddy tried to chase me initially, and he decided the next time if we were to go cycling, he would change into his running attire and go for his run while he chased after me. Haha.

After all cycling, we decided to take a break and have some fun at the playground.

With almost 2 hours of fun, we were hot and sweaty and proceeded to take a shower at my place.  Had lunch at the nearby food centre, before I carried on with Part 2 of fun - outing to the Asian Civilization Museum.
 
And now I declared I am ready to go cycling on my 2-wheeler bike !!!
 

Science Centre Excursion

I have been asking Daddy and Mummy to bring me to the Science Centre for quite a long time.  So since school ended early on Wednesday, Daddy decided to bring me to the Science Centre in the afternoon. 

Went home to take a quick shower, then we proceeded to JCube for early lunch at Subway.  And then it was time to make our trip down to the Science Centre.  The Mega Bug exhibition was on-going, so Daddy bought for the exhibition.

Some interesting facts ....





And gosh, they had the gigantic bug models in display.  Looked very life-like, just like the real bug and insects.  Daddy made me read the description of all the bug displays, so that I can ask him questions if I did know what was being described.
 
The Aedes mosquito
 

The common house cockroach, known as the "American" cockroach.  But actually originated from Africa !!! Quite confusing right ?
 



Scorpions !!! And their bodies have this ability to be lighted up using ultra-violet rays.  And this was how researchers use UV rays at night to understand how scorpions behave at night
 


Praying mantis .... with compound eyes.  Daddy explained to me what compound eyes are.  And each compound eye has 2000-4000 lenses !!!
 

Normal grasshopper
 

Another bug / insect with compound eyes - the honey bees.  I told Daddy that I saw this in Australia
 

Yee .... housefly
 


Then at 2 pm, we went to watch the 3D Bug Movie .... was a 40 mins show, but it was really interesting.  Showed the transformation of caterpillar to butterfly, and how bugs became prey and predators to different bugs / insects.  The movie also featured how bugs can camouflage themselves to hide from predators .... cost just $3 per ticket, so super worth it
 


We waited eagerly for the Fire Tornado performance at 3 pm ....
 

Wow, see the fire tornado in action !!! Daddy explained to me how the vanes at the bottom of structure allowed cold air to come in one direction, while the hot air rose up.  And this created a swirling action which created the fire tornado.  Fuel was a mixture of methylated spirit and kerosene

Towards the end when the fire died down, we saw the smoke tornado !!!

At 4 pm, we went for the sound experiment performance.  In fact, I had seen that many years back, but was too young to understand and remember what I have learnt.  So this time, I still enjoyed myself a lot.  In fact, when the gor-gor asked for volunteers to answer questions, I immediately raised up my hand and answered.  Haha.

We spent some time at the main exhibit area, before we left at 5 pm.  Compared to 2009 trip, I learnt quite a lot during this trip.  And definitely nice bonding time with Daddy.
