Walking in the rain

rainy day

stomp stomp stomp

When it rains, it pours…and pours. Thankfully we managed to meet up with our friend who came down from Malaysia and had a lovely cooling morning breakfast at Grub before it poured.

Whilst this mummy caught up with her friend, Daddy Ting and Ollie had a nice quiet stroll around Bishan Park hand in hand before the food came. The mentaiko fries…oh mentaiko. Yummms. The dip was definitely more-ish! This would be a place that we wouldn’t mind going back for brunch again.

Got back in time for Ollie to crash out for a 3-hr nap. He had a late bedtime the night before and I guess he was catching up on sleep. I think the rainy weather also had something to do with it haha. I had to wake him up else last night’s bedtime was going to be even later and he would have skipped his lunch.

Daddy Ting and I were contemplating going to check out the new Bedok Mall but the rain was kinda putting us off. Ollie got a glimpse of his boots when Donald was putting a spanner into the storage cabinet and starting fussing for us to take his boots out.

Hmmmm. Mummy had a brain wave haha. I told Donald that this would be a great chance for Ollie to go stomping in puddles in the rain. Aaaand he has a raincoat. *beam* surprisingly Ollie was really game to put on his raincoat.

“Ollie walking rain!” after we decked him out in rain gear.

And because of that, Donald said we’ll go for a walk in the rain. Well done, Ollie. You got your daddy wrapped around finger hahah. Now just tell him that mummy wants a ..*whisper whisper*. =P

He looked so adorable wearing the raincoat and wellies. I was taking heaps of photos. Mother’s syndrome. Fun times ahead.

I was just writing some notes in my organiser and trying to remember some dates I have for the next couple of weeks when I realised we’ll be seeing Quentin in about 2 weeks time. Wow. Has two weeks passed already? 6.5 mths…and just another 3-ish mths to go. Then life will be turned upside-down for me haha. Okay…breaaathe. I was also thinking about the conversation Donald and I have been having over the weekend. Finances, raising a family, and our families. Welcome to adulthood I guess.

And just like that, I was checking out some updates on social media platforms and started reading about a riot happening in Singapore. Huh? Surely these people were sensationalising an incident? But no, I was watching videos of rioters overturning police cars and setting things alight. And I felt unsettled. Here I was, snuggled under the covers in bed with my husband, my child in another room feeling all safe. Somewhere, about 30 mins drive away, there was a mayhem unheard of in over 20 years.

What is this world coming to?
