Visit to the National Dental Center

Subject: Visit to the National Dental Centre
Date: 17 July 2014 (Friday)
Tricia is 3 years, 1 months, 1 weeks and 6 days old today.

Tricia had her appoint at the National Dental Centre today. This is part of her participation in an early dental intervention research with the NDC which she started when she was 18 months old. Today is her last 2nd appointment today and we will be discharged from this research programme after the next visit.

She was really good today. She showed the nurse her new shoes, sat on the dental seat alone while they cleaned her teeth, chat with the dentist and even asked for a sticker!

Its good that she had a great experience today!

BB1 is 7 year 3 months old

BB2 passed her swim safer stage 2 test today! It was a intensive couple of months leading to this test date. Daddy was putting in extra coaching hours almost daily to practice with her as the date draws near.

The toughest requirement in this stage was the 10 seconds vertical sculling! We are glad to managed to master it in time!

I will the picture do the talking!

 It was a wet and cold Tuesday morning. We had to wait outside for the pool to open as it was close due to the rain

 All lined up and ready to perform the first task! BB1 is no.10.

Hello Kai Kai and Jia Jia

Date: 18 June 2014
Subject: River Safari

We met Kai Kai and Jia Jia today!!

I brought BB1 to River Safari! Its her first time there and my 2nd. I have been there when we were volunteering for a CSR field trip with a group of under privilege children.

Its actually BB2's CC field trip and I thought I tagged along and bring BB1 since she has never been there before.

We took a bus to Ang Mo Kio and had breakfast there before heading to the bus terminal to catch the bus all the way to the zoo. It was a super fun trip and we even managed to go on the new River Safari boat cruise,  the newest attraction in the park.

Here are the photos.

All ready to go. See her rainbow loom bracelets!
