...no-tv week

it's day 3 of no-tv week for tsugtsug... and so far, so good. he's been self feeding and is actually eating a lot more than WITH tv.. maybe because i'm so focused on him, i always manage to stuff some food on his mouth..

anyway, he likes rice a lot.. here's him eating rice with homemade chawanmushi (steamed egg)




the no-tv rule is hardest on ME actually. tsugtsug doesn't seem to mind now.. first day, he will open the tv himself but yesterday and today, he's coping surprisingly well. it also helps that it's a weekend, so raymond can play with him too. last friday, when it was just me and tsugtsug, the hours seem to drag by.. tsug and i just made more trips to the hawker and the playground..

speaking of playgrounds, i have a new favorite mall.. it's Sembawang Shopping center.. it's just a free 10-minute shuttle-bus away from our place, and it has an awesome playground.. the usual dry one, and a wet one! splash park! best part, .. still free!! tsugtsug didn't like getting wet so much, but hopefully, after a few more trips he'll eventually come around. The mall also has walkalators/travelators, so no more queueing to the elevator because of the stroller.. it has a breastfeeding station, and a family toilet where the stroller actually fits inside the cubicle. One cubicle inside the regular ladies toilet also has this sort of highchair, where you can put your baby in while you're peeing hehehe. love it. it also has Aston's .. this awesome, inexpensive steakhouse and MOF, our fave japanese restaurant.

splash park:

we were laughing so hard while making the mochi.. it was extremely hot and our fingers were getting burned whilst trying to flatten them.. but trust me, it tastes better than it looks.


that's it for now. bye guys!
