Charles & Keith

I am absolutely loving their shoes at the moment. The shoes are affordable and very comfortable.

I have been to the store at Pavvy, many times but have been refraining from buying any since I knew I was going to Singapore and I thought it would be cheaper there.

Got these two pairs from my trip.


Killer wedge platforms - 5 storeys high! Hi!hi! I sure feel like it, when I'm wearing them. Surprisingly, they're very comfortable, and I do take the train home from work. So, there is always a fair amount of walking there. Tried and tested, my friend! This one passed the test with flying colours!


How flat can you get? What a contrast from the plaform huh? Well, yes I do have varied taste in shoes, though comfort is still super important not to mention price! This one is lovely. A good rest with both feet on the ground after flying high on the wedges.

Got another pair this week. I did try them on when I was in Singapore but the particular outlet that I bought the two pairs didn't have them in my size, I did not bother checking at any other outlets after that.

However, I cannot get them out of my mind...

When a colleague mentioned quite "evilly" that she was heading down south for a quick trip... she offered to get "anything that I wanted" from C & K. I'm like.... hmmm! It didn't take me long to look for these peep toe slip ons on their website.

I love kitten heels and the tassle. Would have gone for the safe black, but since I do need another pair of brown shoes more than a black pair, I ended up with this brown one.

3 pairs in a span of 3 weeks! So I must be off shoes for at least the next couple of months right!
Hmm only time will tell, only time can tell...

Last 2 days of our holiday (Singapore Day 4 & 5).

As promised, on the 4th day in Singapore we took the kids to the Zoo. We as in, just me and my father. My mother had to leave this one day out since the day 2 and 3 has given her a major back-ache. She just cannot walk anymore, and needed to have a rest in the hotel. Which turned out to be a good thing, since the Zoo, is not small and the day was not sunny! Yup, it rained again, 3rd outing day in Singapore and it rained, sigh! However, that didn't kill our spirits, ok so the truth is it didn't kill the kids' spirits. We tried our best to check out the Singapore Zoo as much as the weather and our Universal Studios's raincoats permitted!



The sea-lion show.



Tram ride.



The elephant show.




White Tiger.



Like our raincoats? It's no fun walking in the rain!


Rainforest show.


Zarif's favourite - the proboscis monkey.









Nayli took these orchid pictures. Not bad at all eh?


The zoo was lovely, the kids loved it, I loved it, even though we would have preferred a drier and sunnier day. Would have loved to take the kids to the Science Centre and the bird park too, perhaps next time, hopefully it won't be the rainy season then. Anyhow, I managed to do a tiny spot of shopping at the zoo still, ha!ha!


I just love the paper bag from the Merchandise shop. Love it!

After a wet day at the zoo, we took the MRT straight to Orchard Road, it was my last day here, so I had to buy one little thing that I have set my eyes and heart on before I leave the City.


Amongst the few paper bags that I got, this is my favourite.
I think this will be my motto when I am out shopping from now on.

Ok, this is it. The final update on our Singapore trip.

The last day was too short, after breakfast, we packed up and headed for the airport for our flight home.
Oh, that's where I met my blogger friend Marlini. Unfortunately, we only managed a very very brief hello and goodbye, sigh! Next time maybe over a cuppa at least yah?




Marlini & Baby Furqan with Me & Zaim, the rest of my entourage has gone in through the departure gates earlier to have lunch. Until next time Singapore.... make sure it's all bright and sunny the next time we come again yah!!!

Zarif's farewell to his full teethed smile.

I received a phone call from home on Friday while I was at work. It was Zarif, telling me that his lower front tooth is loose and he can wiggle it and it is hurting when he bites into his food. Oh, I thought, so it's time for you to say goodbye to your tooth Zarif, I will take you to the dentist on Saturday. As promised... forgotten for a moment first thing in the morning, but reminded... we all trooped to the dentist to say farewell to Zarif's front tooth.


Zarif's full set of baby teeth.


At the dentist, the doctor is checking the loose tooth.


Getting a shot to anesthetize both the tooth that will be extracted and the jawbone and gums that surround it! Eeew, I know! I used to hate this part, each time I go to the dentist when I was a kid. I don't know, maybe the gel that the doctor applied before the shots really works, don't remember getting those then. Maybe we had them back then but they weren't as effective. He didn't seem to feel a thing, didn't shed a tear, didn't even notice that he was shot! Twice!!! Notice, how his eyes were shield from the scary instrument of torture?? I thought that was very thoughtful of the doctor.


The apparatus.


Gurgle and spit boy...


Hey, my mouth feels weird! Really weird!

The extraction!


Aww man....


Taraaaa... bye bye teeth! Yup, two! He lost two at once, according to the dentist it was not just one tooth but both two front teeth were loose! OMG! No wonder the 2 injections!


Mama... do I look that bad??? No Zarif, you are still my handsome boy!!! :-)
Well done, my brave BIONICLE boy! I am so proud of you! Papa will be equally proud when he sees this!

Mall hopping (Singapore - Day 3).

On the third day, since I thought, it would be nice for the kids to be out of the sun/rain for one day after Universal Studios, we'd spend the day checking out what I have missed most in Singapore... what else if it ain't the malls. Mall hopping turned out to be more tiring than a day at the "Studios". I didn't take that many pictures, here's some taken here and there...


Bugis Street, didn't spend that long here as it looked like it was going to rain.
My plan to check out Arab Street was also cancelled.


This was at Raffles Place.




Just woken up from a cat stroller nap and was mesmerised by the mime artist.

My father then took us to Vivo City, specifically at lunch time, to try his favourite Tauhu Bakar at the food court there. Apparently each time he comes to SG for work, he will not miss coming here at least once each trip! My verdict : really nice, though a tad hot, as in spicy! My mother's verdict : I can make something like this, and even better! Ha!ha!



I ended up taking the yong taufu + noodles and soup mix for myself and the kids.
This is my favourite dish at Pavvy foodcourt, whenever I feel like something soupy.



Zaim enjoying his noodles. Slurp! Slurp!

Notice the big fat boy popia on the table in front of me, it is absolutely delish!!!




My mom had this shaved ice thingy for dessert.


The kids chose this Chocolatey Ice Blended Concoction.


After lunch, we checked out what else Vivo City has to offer. This was where we finally found Nayli's trainers. While I browse the shops with Nayli, Zarif, Zaim and atuk discovered the best waiting area ever!


Wheeee down the slide he went.



Nayli just couldn't resist in the end.


While you kids were at the playground...


Back from Vivo City, in the MRT, Zaim enjoyed his endless MRT rides.



From the MRT station to the hotel, we took the hotel shuttle.
As it turned out, the shuttle had to do a few pickups first before heading back to the hotel.
We ended up getting a free ride around the city. Nice.



Nothing like ending the day with a hot bath! (oh how I wished I had one single bath
throughout my stay here, but I never did!).


Zarif's turn.


Zaim with his new toys.
