I am a homebody, that’s why we have not been to any pasyalan lately, and we’re in Singapore right now, which means I should take every opportunity to go pasyal, right? Here’s what we’re up to lately.
Monday, October 24. Celebrated Dad and Mom’s 29th year anniversary. Twenty nine years of love, and most of those years they spent far apart because Dad’s always abroad ever since the world began. (When I say most, it means they only get to spend one month together every year in Dad’s 18 years in Dubai. Plus two years before Dubai. And then three weeks every three months when Dad was in China. And then Singapore.) I admire how loyal and faithful they are to each other. Long distance relationship is tough, but see, their relationship is still as strong as ever.
Here’s the mandatory couple shot, hihi, plus a few other photos. We ate at New York New York (again! yes, we’re predictable like that) located at the nearby mall, Jurong Point.
Tuesday, October 25. Melvin’s off for the day because he had to get his personal employment pass at The Riverwalk. We woke up late, went to the market first kung saan inabutan kami ng malakas na ulan. (We were walking in the rain, good thing I brought my umbrella so Kaila did not get wet as much as Melvin did). I think it was a surreal moment, sayang walang picture. We went out around 1:30 pm. I did not bring the camera because I predicted that we’d get tired because we’d go malling. (I should have brought my ever reliable Sony Cybershot. So confused na naman ako whether to get a DSLR or evil cam, sobrang inconvenient to bring the DSLR when you have a kid.) We were tired indeed. Kinailangang pasanin si Kaila for many times because she kept on saying “pagod na ako.” Good thing Melvin’s very patient with the little girl. Gusto nya laging kasama si Kaila wherever we go kahit mahirapan sya sa pag-carry kay Kaila, go lang. Sweet isn’t he?
We went to Paragon for some shopping. Of course, wala na naman akong na-shopping for myself. Melvin bought one set of RL perfumes (four bottles labeled 1, 2, 3, and 4) for himself and we spent S$531 for those! I bought an Armani perfume for my brother. Fortunately, we got 10% discount for the perfumes, excluding 7% GST plus lots of freebies. (Photos to follow) After which, we searched where H&M was. To my dismay, plenty of people are also there. Ayoko pa naman mag-shopping pag ganon, parang palengke. Bought a dress for Kaila. Couldn’t find anything for myself, boo.
We got home around 6:30 pm, rested for a while then proceeded to cook Melvin’s baon for the following day. Melvin was the one who cooked, I just cut the carrots, potatoes, and bell peppers. He cooks better than I am so I let him cook. The result: yummy menudo! Congrats Daddy, I am proud of you. 🙂
I don’t plan to go anywhere today. I’m planning to clean the unit, wash our clothes, and then sleep all day. I love this life. 🙂
