Sun Filled Weekends

Last weekend I took Louis and Emmie to Sentosa. Met up Alan… SJ ( RichGrad )… Simon and his two boys. Louis loved playing with the goldie and the 2 spaniels. It was Emmie’s first trip to Sentosa and she was a little more hesitant. Soon she found herself digging into the sand with her paws and nose. The kids definitely loved her.

I’ve been taking less and less pictures outdoors these days when I have the 2 dogs around. I guess cause my attention’s on them and it never occurs to me to snap pics till its too late. I did do a little video of them but it won’t be up for quite awhile more.

Then the previous week I had some relatives come over from out of town. They asked me what was my weekend plan and I told them I was heading to Pulau Ubin for a bit of a cycle. To my surprise they were game to join! It proves that it doesn’t matter how old you are as long as you are young at heart!

Met some young people on the island that asked me where I was from. I don’t look Singaporean apparently.

Saw some iguanas… stick insects… horn bills… spiders…

We even stopped at the local malay village for yummy and cheap kumpung durians. This family has been living on the island for 50 years.

It was a very nice day out and I would love to take my mum the next trip so she can have some durians and seafood but I really must remember to apply insect repellent. I think I was nominated the favorite by the mosquitoes there.

One last thing. When we were at the seafood restaurant on the island. They hung these bags of water above each table… guess what it’s for?
