Adi's Birthday 2016

Adi celebrated his fourth birthday on 21 May.

20 May (Fri), started as a pre-celebration at school. He had an early celebration, cake and birthday goodies party at school. Then on 21 May he got is Thomas & Friends giant gift from grandparents. And a race car from his Aunty Eva.

Went for a quick breakfast at Swensens, and then immersed himself in shooting the dinosaurs, aliens - at his favorite arcade games at Timezone. Kids are so natural at being trigger-happy.

Towards lunch, we went to Woodlands WaterFront Park - as our plans for cruise trip to Kusu Island had to be called-off. Always good to have a Plan B. At the park, both kids had fun. We capped the afternoon with a lunch at Rasa Waterfront Restaurant. 

The restaurant was on a jetty. There were many people fishing, their sun tanned faces anxiously waiting for the line to flinch. I wondered where in the world could people find such time, patience and calmness - for fishing. Apparently people do. Some of them make a catch, and then use the catch as a bait for a bigger catch. Human nature is so apparent..greed & hope drives their routine all day.

In the evening, we had dinner at home, and Adi cut his ice-cream cake. Blowing the candles needs about 4 to 5 re-takes..with Ayla and Adi sniping at the candles.
