[a week in pictures]

To the regular readers of this blog, so sorry that postings are super sporadic!! :) Work wise, it's getting really busy and we are seriously considering if we should be expanding the office. That comes with it's own can of worms as we know from past experiences, so we really are thinking lots about it! In the meantime, we try to manage on our own and that means lots of working into the wee hours of the morning. Which then means less time for postings!

Here's our week in pics :
We celebrated my dearest Papa's birthday by taking a day off work to spend the whole day just across the causeway. It was really quite a relaxing day off, the weather was really great and the malls and eating places were quiet cos it was a weekday. We had so much good (and cheap!) food to eat. Here's our lunch place - a kelong (hut on stilts over water) with super fresh seafood!
V and G, it was V's bday celebration too, they have their bday's just 1 day apart.
Me sneaking a kiss at K.
After we got back to Singapore the next day, G had to be warded in for a day surgery at the General Hospital. She had a certain tooth problem, which has been diagnosed as something called the High Risk Caries, which manifests itself in lots of tooth cavities. Due to the late discovery of this, she has 1 tooth that is beyond saving and needs a root canal treatment as it will be another 5 more years before the permanent teeth replaces it. Sigh, sounds super painful and we opted for the General Aneasthesia option, which means that G will hopefully have the most peaceful sleep and then wake up with a mouthful of clean and good teeth (or at least well protected ones!)
Still happy before the Op, she actually took to it very well. I think it was infinitely more painful for us as parents to watch our little girl be put under GA (i had to hold her struggling against me until the meds took effect.... sob sob) Of course at times like this, the "guilt" in us raises it's ugly head and we do feel sooo guilty for not doing all we could to have prevented this. So now, lesson learnt, we are keeping extra vigilent on the younger one, and also making sure the girls have extra hygiene control as far as their teeth are concerned!
Much happier girl after the op, she had a goodie bag from mummy and daddy as a "brave girl" pressie. More than anything, she was thrilled that she had us BOTH to herself the whole day!
Brought the girls to the perennial favorite OCC (or affectionately known to the girls as the "ball ball place") over the weekend. It was really great, not crowded as we were one of the first few there. They loved the toddler area, and the main climbing space. G was the best big sister the whole morning, proudly leading her little sister onto the higher portions of the climbing frame and helping her over the difficult bits.
We then had lunch at the Jap restaurant there. Really good way to spend a Sunday morning! :)
Also spent the majority of my free time (ie girl's naptime) making up my Pupsik orders :)
Hope the receipients like them!
Over and out for this week, we're looking forward to an extended weekend at Sentosa, where we will stay in our "regular" hotel :) The girls love the sand and beach, and we figured that it will be just as nice staying in the country.
