• The last time I posted about Aina’s private ballet class was in early November, 3 months ago. She’s been going to class every week except for the 3-week ballet school holiday in December. And I’ve been recording her session every single time… We kinda have to anyway. I think I sorta skipped the reason why she’s taking this private ballet…

  • After 7 months of delays, we finally finished writing the story of this Japan trip. Unlike our previous trips, this time we were visiting the northern part of Japan. This 10-day trip was one of the most-awaited trips for us. The Avocadolite family went to meet up with Noushka and Ditha — who came from Jakarta, Indonesia — in the island…

  • After seeing Rinjani rolling around with her inline skate on social media in the past few days, we were reminded that Aina has never tried rollerblading, ever… So, on a whim, we decided to spend our Sunday afternoon in East Coast Park for the 2-hour rented inline skates. Aina, as usual, was quite excited. But I guess, she didn’t know inline-skating is not as…

  • One of the fun things about Christmas is doing the Christmas-related crafts. Last week, we made some reindeers. Today, it’s candy canes and elves… made out of wooden beads and pipe-cleaners. It was a nice day out, so all of us sat out in the balcony and did the craft together. Anyway, what you need is: Christmas-colored beads. We chose…

  • The first time and the last time we went to Universal Studios Singapore (USS) was back in June 2010… Yep, over 5 years ago. At that time, Aina was too stressed out with the noises around the park to enjoy it. I didn’t even bother to write an entry about that visit in this journal. But you can still see…

    River Safari 2015

    by thalia 11 December 2015

    Since both Aina and Ari are having the whole December off during this end-of-year holiday, we planned to visit a few parks and places in Singapore. Our first destination was the River Safari, one of the three parts of the Singapore Zoo complex in Mandai. This was not our first time visiting the River Safari. Aina had been here with her Kindergarten class a…

  • Aina and I were browsing around Pinterest to find ideas for marking our annual Christmas decoration, when we stumbled upon a cute picture of Rudolf made out of used toilet paper roll. Aina immediately went looking for used toilet paper rolls, but all of them had been thrown away. So we had to wait for a few days to collect the rolls. It…

  • Two weekends ago, right on the 31st of October, we threw another Halloween Party. But Ari and I were so busy that we didn’t take many pictures during the party. It took me more than a week to gather pictures from everybody… So, pardon me for the late post. This year, out of nowhere, we decided to go for a…

  • Well, actually it was a pre-molar. A few weeks ago, the only two of her canines left. All the incisors and the bottom canines had all been out since she was in K2. Then, in the last two weeks, her canines started to move. Last Thursday, 6 days ago, her right canine dropped off. It was expected, because it’s been shaking so…

  • Yes, Aina is a ghost this year! Now that she is old enough and brave enough to do a scary theme,  she’ll be Sadako-coming-out-of-the-well this year… Yep, that Sadako from Ringu. And if you haven’t seen the movie, this youtube shows the scene with the well (and including the one with the TV, so beware!). It was sooo much fun…

  • For the past few days, it had been a pain to have a glass of cold water or a cup of hot tea. Literally a pain… My right jaw and cheek was hurting after drinking almost anything. I thought one of my teeth is being sensitive, but I wasn’t sure which tooth was the culprit. So, I made an appointment to the dentist. Originally, I thought I got…

  • Aina said this looks like her school uniform: blue pinafore with white shirt underneath. I’m still waiting for my white sneakers to arrive, to make it more like her school uniform. Then, we can wear it together, when I pick her up from school… 😛 Layla Label vest, Cotton On white tees, STRAW Lana leather backpack, The Editor’s Market sandals. WR:…
