Rainy days and Thursdays...

Today it has rained all day. When we got up this morning the first thing the kids wanted to do was go swimming... But we told them that we would go shopping first and get them measured up for their wedding clothes etc ... We did that, in the torrential rain... Then came back and it was still raining... So no swimming today and tonight we have a babysitter!!! So we are going out with adults... For dinner... Great! Although getting a table for four on Valentines night is pretty difficult. Even our suggestion of pushing two table of two together was met with horror, 'But it's Valentines day sir, set menu, set price per couple... Couple...' It just wasn't worth the arguing, so we decided to go for seafood! Chilli crab! Yum!

Yesterday our good friend and TJ 's god father came over to see us. As he walked through the door TJ rushed up to him and shouted, "Gong Xi Fa Cai!' He paused and then added, 'where's my money? You have to give me money!' It turned out that TJ believed that by wishing someone happy new year he was invoking some kind of cosmic cash machine!!! He wasn't too pleased when it was explained to him that this Godfather didn't have to give him ang bao as he wasn't married yet.

The children are constantly confused by how many people already know them, either from the blog or Facebook, such is he power of social media. Every time they go anywhere someone is bound to spot papa or myself and chat to the children by name. They now think they are some kind of Singapore royalty even though only one of their Dads is a Singapore queen!
