to celebrate our birthdays, we (ari, koda and i) went to have a picnic at the Botanical Gardens. the last time we went there with Koda was back in February. it’s probably one of the best present for Koda, since she loves it there. it’s such a shame that we don’t go there as often as we wanted to, but most of the taxi here in Singapore refuse to take Koda so it’s very stressful and annoying to deal with the transportation.
anyways, after having a fit with a cab and one of the taxi companies, we finally got our ride and got to spend a few hours in the Gardens… unlike the previous trips, this time, we brought a picnic blanket to sit on. it was a Snoopy picnic blanket that ari used to use when he was still in elementary school. that way, i could spend most of my time either sitting or laying on the blanket, underneath the trees while ari and koda run around and play. what a nice set up.
the weather was quite friendly, too. it wasn’t raining and even though it was quite sunny and hot, there were soft breeze that cool us down. i think, next time, we will bring some kind of food for us to munch on and maybe a board game to play while sitting around.
after a few hours in the garden, we called another cab to get home. while waiting for the cab, three little girls came by and asked if they could touch Koda. i’m very proud to say that Koda behaved very well… the girls were rubbing her head, back and tails, pulling her ears and even touching her nose and tongue (!!) and Koda doesn’t do a thing but sitting pretty and take it all patiently… even though i feel kinda bad for Koda, it makes me feel like she may be able to handle the arrival of the baby well enough.
