Well this weekend just gone was great. Reminds me of the good things about living in Singapore. We had a relaxing but expensive weekend as usual with Singapore nothing is cheap. However after some haggling we got some money off as the Japanese say price down.
Well we went to our local strip shopping centre in wood grove.
We had lunch at our local hawker well the up market park the old aussie cafe. I had a chicken burger and Hiroko pork chop. Not two expensive as we shard with the kids. However, kai has learning difficulties(ASD) and a spout of pink eye so we had a doctors visit. The doctor gave kai some antibiotics and we also had to get his form filled out to send to a special needs school we would like Kai to go to. All in all again not to bad 35$. Then comes the next bill the dr says kai needs glasses. We go downstairs check Kai he needs glasses 300$ down from 600$ lol i wonder when the lady shows me lenses at 300$ crazy for kids who grow out so fast. Back in the UK glasses are free for kids.
Next went for a hair cut the guy is talking to me and recognises me from the news paper a few weeks back we were in the paper about kai and his leaning difficulties and how he is coping by playing football.
The man is talking to me about football and Kai and his team man utd. I say my local team is Fulham but I support Liverpool. His been a Man U fan since the 60s but knows where I’m from as his daughter is a PHD student at Roehampton Uni small world i think. He says his not seen his daughter in 6 years and misses her. Hope he can see her again soon.
We go shopping after i pay 20$ its 17 we give a small tip for the conversation. Nice to have a chat must places i’ve been to during a hair cut don’t talk he reminded me of my old hair dresser back in the UK Vito’s in Putney.
We go shopping then Hiroko went to get her hair cut and treated around 3hrs later Hiroko comes home lol my hair takes 20mins to get cut Hiroko’s 3hrs. And 20 times the cost of mine and Kai put together even with the tip.
Its a mates birthday so we get ready jump into the taxi to one amber condo. I could not afford to live there in my dreams but its when you realise how nice SG is and ot turns to holiday mode. Sitting out side by a BBQ eating with friends while the kids play beautiful it was then comes the birthday cake the kids enjoying themselves beautiful weather too. Ted my younger son was funny putting cake over himself.
Lots of drink relaxing and talking the time files and its time to go home but another great thing about Sg its small. We use the taxi app and were in the taxi at 10 and home by 10:20. Kids in bed a bit of relaxing before bed then its football in the morning.
Football was at sports planet in woodlands was hard work but i did not take the kids this week by myself there was a little help. Was a nice break. Kai and Ted were tired so lots of tears but it was fun and a nice cheap Sunday.
