Happy Moments

Long time since i blogged. My parents, sister and her 8months old baby girl came on June 30th. A great time indeed. My sister and I enjoyed shopping especially at Takashimaya, OG and Lucky Plaza who are having the great singapore sale tags hanging all over the shops. We purchased branded items for a good prize. We went to Vivocity, and enjoyed the spectacular view of the ships, cable car, Sentosa mono rail and Merlion from the balcony of the topmost floor where there is water till knee deep for the children to play. She left with her kid on last saturday july 12th for chennai, while my parents are staying with me. My kids always love the company of their grandparents.

My daughter had the opportunity to watch the singapore national day celebration at the Marine Bay on the July 12th, 2008. It has got a floating platform. She said it was spectacular and she enjoyed the show, fireworks and ofcourse very happy with the goodie bag. The white color cap with the NDP symbol has lights in it. You can switch it on and off with a button. She had great time with her friends watching the show.
