It's March hols again. Glad to have a breather for both Daddy and I after a hectic 10 weeks of school term. We have not been spending enough time with the kids recently. So to make it up to them. We brought them to two places this week.
Thursday, we went to SEA Aquarium at Resorts World Sentosa with some of the SMH Jan08 mummies and their kiddos. NTUC card members get a special deal, 2 adult tics for $50 instead of $29 each. And 2 child tickets for $35. Kids below 4 years old do not need to pay. The mummies decided to band together and buy the tickets so that we can all have discounted tics. Haha.
We reached the place around 10am, I took away some pastries from Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf while waiting for the other mummies to arrive. The kids were all a bit shy initially. But I was proud of RA who was willing to take this group photo with the other gals. :)
Raelynn refused to join in and threw a tantrum though. Only later when we were alone, she confided in me that cos she didn't want to take photo cos she didn't want to raise her arm, she only wants to do the 'V' finger sign when taking photos.
We had to walk through the Maritime Experiential Museum to get to SEA Aquarium. Frankly, MEM is not very interested for the gals cos they are too young. They want to touch the touch screen video displays but don't know how to play the games.
When we went inside SEA aquarium, it is really much bigger than the older aquarium ie. Underwater world. There were lots of fishes and coral reefs, sea jellies (jelly fish), puffer fish, and even huge lobsters that made me think instantly of yummy lobster sashimi. There is a huge Ocean Restaurant in the middle of the aquarium where diners can watch the fishes and Manter rays as they swim by. Wonder if they serve fish and whether diners will feel guilty eating it there. hee.
But the only fish Raelynn was interested was nowhere to be found even after we had some snacks at the cafe near OCEAN restaurant. She was looking for SHARK. She kept asking me where is the shark but the shark tank was the very last tank just next to the exit. Save the best for last? Maybe for a patient kid, not mine. ;P
The cellular phone network inside the SEA aquarium is really bad so beware. I called my hubby 6 times cos he brought RA to the toilet and we were separated and his phone did not ring at all. End up, we missed joining some of the other mummies for lunch cos I was stuck inside trying to look for him.
