ty's saturday

we're usually really busy on saturdays, running errands or doing activities mom wants to do. i feel bad because we i tote the boys (all three of them) around while crossing things off of my list.

i grew up in a family with six children. i can remember my dad scheduling out a time for each of us; it was our "special time" with him. he would let us pick whatever we wanted to do...just the two of us.

this saturday we let ty plan out his special day and mostly stuck to it. however, we still snuck in some errands when it was convenient.

the friday night before, we made the list of everything he wanted to do that fit on a page.


hang out with the fam

beach and swimming at sentosa

made a pit stop at velocity newton square to pick up my race pack for the safari zoo run. this mall is awesome for anything sports-related!

ate at the hard rock cafe instead of "tom and jerry's" aka chachachas.
after living here for six months, i can truly appreciate the hard rock cafe.
the nachos were gigantic and the beef in the hamburger tasted like beef. they even had "free-flow" soft drinks!!! the service was FANTASTIC! in singapore, you don't tip. it's just the culture here. [at first, it was really awkward not giving anything to the guys who fill up our "petrol" or even the delivery guys who lugged our furniture up the stairs.] we were so impressed with our waitress, we HAD to leave a tip.

walked over to toys r us which takes up an entire floor at the forum shopping mall. ty used his own money to get a beyblade, or bane play as he calls it. it's all the rage at his school now.
parked next to a cold storage specialty shop and found two of our ::cannot find anywhere items:: there - fritos and canned pumpkin. hooray!
we got a bike pump, but didn't have enough time for a bike ride or walk and didn't get to the play day with jacob either. everything else was a success!

thanks for an awesome day ty! it will be fun to see what you come up with next time. ♥ mom

Very fun Malia! I've been thinking about you guys a lot this week. We're trying to agree on a plan for our sister's reunion. It won't be the same without you there. I also started a card group where I'm putting my inheritance from you to good use. Love your blog! Singapore looks awesome!

Amy, good to hear from you! Moving was pretty rough at first, but now I think we're getting it down. We would love for you guys to move here. We'd have to start a co-ed softball league for sure. :)

Hi Christina! How's the move going?

Michelle, whatever you guys decide, I'm sure it will invovle lots of fun, food, and shopping!! Sad I'm going to miss it. :(
