We're Whole Again
My family is whole again!
In a way... since we had our shop, Wifey were always stuck tending to it, while our son had been stuck to his computer and friends to actually spend some time with us as a family.
Well, Sunday was hopefully the start of many more family outings and time spent together again other than at home watching TV and sleeping.
First off, we had lunch at Bedok Food Centre at Old Bedok Road, off Upper East Coast Road.
I was excited inside to have both my favourite people eating out with me together... without having Wifey to rush to open the shop or our son back home.
So excited inside, everything there looked extra delicious. I ordered several dishes that, I have to admit, were just too much for a 3-person meal. We had Ayam Penyet each with Tom Yam Soup and Baby Kailan in Oyster Sauce.
Wifey and I had Teh Tarik , tea with condense milk and froths, while our son had Milo Dinosaur... well you can figure out what drink that is... an over-sized chocolate drink with a heap of chocolate power on it in ice.
Fortunately I was too slow to order Satay, skewered barbecued beef in peanut sauce, else I do not think we could finish them since Wifey is not a big eater. I ended-up eating the leftovers from Wifey's and our son's
Wifey was excited too. Knowingly so, she had been liberated from the shop. Well, at least for a month. She suggested going shopping after our lunch, but before that, our son had his hair cut at a Malay Barber Shop across the road where the hawker centre was.
Then off we went to IKEA Tampines over at Tampines Avenue 10 where we pretty much had decided how our new shop should look like and what display furnitures we should buy. Bought a few stuff for the home, and the sofa bed covers for our son's room.
That was where we met my Mom and Dad, my 3 sisters and their husbands, as well as our nieces. Fantastic! They were going shopping there as well.
We had dinner together at Courts Megastore Box Foodcourt, just beside IKEA.
Then off we went to Giant Hypermart at Tampines Avenue 10. A first visit for Wifey... a total bore for our son! Picked-up some groceries for the home as well as some packed food and essentials to bring for our trip on Wednesday to Bangkok, Thailand. Yes!
A full day outside was invigorating for all since we were all together again, in a long while. More weekends should be like this! I'm looking forward to them.
