Off peak hour to the SEA aquarium..

August had been a fulfiling month. Everyone must have enjoyed tremendously over the Jubilee weekend as we also had our fair share too.

So here is more about the complimentary entry to the SEA aquarium during the off peak hour. Our ticket only allow us to enter from 4pm so we did not set off that early. Though they are closed at 7pm, I would think our walk around for about 2 hours was more than sufficient to cover the entire place.

We eventually parked at the RWS carpark with a heavy damage but the complimentary entry makes it just worthwhile as it provides us so much convenience as we left at 10pm.

The menacing ticketing area.

Oh, am I the only person who did not know that SEA aquarium and the Maritime Museum is actually the same place?
Ok, now you know.

Little girl with her hero.

Interactive area with Xbox games and etc.

And here we are, at the tunnel.

The long spined sea urchin were making my kids go goo goo gaa gaa..
So I took the opportunity to teach them what is symbiosis.
And very quickly Isa could rem the episode of Octonauts about the crab and the sea urchin.

How to resist a picture at such a nicely lit area.

And the sea anemones with the clown fish.
aiyo this preschool educator cannot stop teaching.
and so I also told the children on why only clown fish can go near the sea anemones. 

love this amazing face of mini me. 
she is just so engrossed at the large observation area.

whereas Isa was jus so keen on taking a picture with this aloof guy behind the glass.

my love with taking shots of sea jellies.

my favourite shot of the day.
all taken with iphone 6 with no filter.

can you spot Ray papa, Isa and Dora? hehe..

Isa is in love with reading right.
So he went on and on and on reading this large and smaller panels of information.
me, on the other hand, was information overloaded.

in the large circular tank.
very very pretty sight.

us at the touch pool.
and what a huge milestone for Dora as she did not even dare touch anything at our previous visit at the Underwater World!

at the gift shop. told u she was a poser.

living fossils exhibition area.

time check: 730pm.
oops. we really had to go.

the kids just had to had a go at the mini water display.

Dinner time.
How can Ray papa resist such a cute little girl right?
She really has her way with papa.

And we had to end our day at the Candylicious store.
And am proud to say, we went home empty handed.

What fun it was at the SEA aquarium, I would definitely visit again when the kids are older.

Night session at Universal Studios Singapore..

Because of a special Jubilee weekend we had, my mom bought us tickets to Universal Studios Singapore (USS). Though it was bought at a discounted price from her GRC, it was worth every cent paid! It even include transport, a bento meal and tickets to the SEA aquarium (in which I will write about it in another post).

So here was how we kicked start our Jubilee weekend.

Our venue for dinner was actually at a ballroom in Hard Rock Hotel.
I was not very keen on taking pictures of the crowd cos apparently the emcee explained that there was about 4000 people who had bought the special priced tickets to USS for that night.
Really a overwhelming number.

And my mom with the kids. She is never tired of selfie or wefie.

My little girl with me.

My son with my hero.

Of course lil I is at home with my helper right.
IKR and dont judge me.

And of course, my parents.
It is how strange that my dad did not really spend time with me and sis at such amusement theme parks when we were young but he is rather different when it come to his grandchildren. 
Their relationship is just beyond description.

Dora the Madagascar carousel.
This is actually her 2nd time on this ride. 
Check out the link of our older post at the end.

Isa.. who was so excited about the whole outing.

Us.. the nay side of coming for a night session is that photos taken are definitely of a different expectation.

the kids with Pinocchio.

Papa, kids and Vin Diesel.
Love their poses.

Dora is a poser queen. She just goes into (almost) every gift shop and would request me to take picture of her. And if you dont take, she will say"mama, I havent take picture with this this or that that.."
Life of a blogger's daughter huh.

Us at the Sesame Street Space ride.
We missed this the last round as it went under sudden maintenance.

My minions.

And how can we miss this shot.
Know what I mean by a different expectation of night shot.

A very tired ah lao indeed.
Mr Lepak.

And of course, not forgetting, here is more about our first visit to USS.

National Day Parade 2015.. updated

All I can say that I'm very blessed to have bestie who keep me in her thoughts as at the 11th hour, she said she could spare us some tickets. And so we went to the Padang for the National Day Parade!

This is my first time watching the National Day Parade (NDP) live. 
What a memorable event for me really.

And of course we know that it is not recommended to take public transport so we took the MRT and alighted at Raffles Place MRT which was the nearest to our entrance for the NDP.

And after exiting the MRT, there was sufficient signages and many volunteers who gave verbal instructions on where we should head to.

And so we walked..

and walked..

And finally when we thought we were near..

Just had to take a jump shot.
I was never good with jump shots till I gotten my hands on iphone6.

Anyway here we were, seated on the stairway of the South gate. Ya ya.. on the stairway but who cares right. So by the time we gotten thru the security checks and the long wait, we were finally in and the parade had actually started.

Really very thankful for the amazing aerial display by the RSAF. 
The kids just went wow non stop.

Cool vintage soldiers matching forth. Indeed a salute to our Pioneer Generation for helping build our country. 

Me and my mini me. Though she was a little distracted but I'm so glad she behaved herself thru out the show and I could see she really enjoyed the show so much. Only the first few fireworks scared her a little bit but soon after she overcame them and keep telling me "the fireworks are so beautiful!"

And yes we were sitting on the stairways thru out as instructed by the ushers. Rather they say we could only sit on the stairway. I think nobody wants it this way as well. I don't blame anyone because we all knew we came for one reason. 

Towards the end of the show, all of us were still hyped by the song singing and cheering.

Happy birthday Singapore! 
Majulah Singapura and may more good years to come!

And of course not forgetting thank you Mr Lee for everything.
