Yining Trying Out The Training Chopsticks

It's embarrassing. I do not know how to use the chopsticks properly until the age of 32, until Yining was born. I decided that I want her to learn the right way of holding the chopsticks (amongst other things of course), so I started to learn to use the chopsticks correctly.

For Yining's training, we got her a pair of training chopsticks. At the present stage, her motor skills are good enough for her to learn to manipulate the chopsticks.

And this is her attempt to feed herself using the chopsticks.

Pretty well done ya? :)

Legoland Malaysia - Yining Was Here!

Yining has been asking us to bring her to Legoland Malaysia ever since she saw the advertisement on TV. (Yes, she's telling us what she wants now.)

Through www.deal.com.sg, we bought vouchers for a 2D1N stay at KSL Resort and tickets to Legoland. 

On Day 2, we took the coach to KSL Resort. The journey was smooth, took us about an hour from the pickup point in Singapore to KSL.

And on Day 2, the coach picked us up again and sent us to Legoland at 10am. The queue to enter Legoland was long, but it didn't take as long as we expected. We got in with less than 15 of queueing.

As with all the other theme parks, the first thing I went for was: a stroller.

The stroller rental was RM20 for a Single and RM30 for a double. On hindsight, I should have gotten a double since it's only RM10 more. The double could function as a trolley for all the stuff we are carry as well.

The highlight of Legoland, is the miniatures of various countries. And here it is, mini CBD.

There are numerous rides in Legoland and all of them have their age and height limit.

Yining Height Check

Height check cleared, so here we go!

This ride goes and up and down at various height and speed. And again, affirming my theory, the kids are not afraid of height unless you teach them to. Yining was having hell of a great time.

 

We went for the 'must-have' ride for kids. All the kids enjoy this simple ride. 

We went on for a few other rides and attractions and the last stop was at the water park. Yining got herself real wet and tired. (That was the real intention).

So, we ended the day at Legoland after that. It's amazing how we can spend close to 7 hours in the theme park.

And like all kids, Yining knocked out after that, all the way to Singapore.

Yining's Impeccable Logic

Yining displayed to us her impeccable logic early this morning.

She woke up and saw the iPad and iPad Mini and she started her allocation. She said the brand new iPad Mini belongs to her, iPad belongs to Mummy. FYI, the iPad "belonged to her" before I got the iPad Mini. I looked at her and asked her, "How about PaPa?". And she said, "You have the computer."

……. Speechless.
