Boon Kang has pass his cycling test

If you are staying in Sengkang, and you see Boon Kang wobbling along on his BMX, Daddy is suggesting you to stand one side first. Kang is triangle-plate, and still need to fine tune his balancing department.

It was not too long ago that he got into an ‘accident’ :p

Our No2 Boon Kang has come a long way, considering cycling was second nature for our eldest boy, Boon Wee. Boon Kang took longer to conquer his fear. We started his training last Sep. Remember our bike-family album?

Actually Daddy was too lazy to bring them cycling…
We even had to practise in multi-storey carpark to encourage Kang.

It is fun to watch Kang trying to catch up with Wei.

Look at Kang’s smile. It Shouts volumes of his quiet confidence. He has finally graduated.

So what’s next?
1) We have already equipped adult’s bikes with seats, so Mummy and Daddy can piggy back youngest two.
2) From Npark’s cool Park Conector, we have identify a nice cycling track from Sengkang to Punggol. Read our cool Punggol Promenade post.

Tomorrow, Daddy will be attending the media preview of Festival village at Esplanade park. Arts Festival organisers want you to remember Ten numbers πŸ™‚

If there are too many events (80 to be exact with 500 artists!), fret not, we will recommend that you drop by “Festival Village” from 18th onwards, just to soak in the arty spirit. We heard most of the events within the village arena is FOC. There will be kids friendly events too.

Expect to see Centaur (1/2 man 1/2 horse), you might have spotted them at Chinatown or Raffles place. The Bridge Cafe project seems interesting too

More information can be found here, some events are free :

Our boys’ Chinese compositions are so imaginative

There are dogs, death, puppies and Wen Wei even imagine himself becoming a father one day, and giving dogs to his children ! Mummy and Daddy are very proud of his creative mind, but we are also intrigued and amused haha πŸ™‚

The compo theme is “Tears swell in my eyes“, we did not know Primary schools are now training kids to express their Emo and EQ keke.

Wen Wei writes until “Got dragon got tiger” (Hokkien dialect ζœ‰ιΎ™ζœ‰θ™Ž, meaning very flowery). No wonder his teacher make special mention to his essay.

But do you know what is amazing?
We do not have any pets, but that did not stop Wen Wei’s imagination.
Our big family must have rub off on him. He even dreams about his grandchildren having puppies for pets wahaha.

Wen Kang will catch up soon.
He dreams about having a motorbike in our house. We told him motorbike can only sit two (unless you are in Vietnam, where one bike takes Six ! ) Kang nods his head, he still want his motorbike.
