Rain Or Shine
I have been busy at work and at home that I managed to squeeze a little time to spend some valuable time with the whole of my family at Pasir Ris Park this weekend.
It was organized by my niece for everyone, but was a tad too short-noticed that we could join but not stay overnight with the rest of the family.
It was nonetheless great and timely that my Son had just finished his PLSE Prelim Exams on Thursday, which enabled him to join everyone else and camped overnight with them at BBQ Pit 57 at Carpark E.
After pitching a tent for our Son, ate and drank sinful barbecued food... had lots of laughs and jokes, Wifey and I had to go back home at about 3:00am in the wee hours of the morning, to join them back again this afternoon... after our appointment with the curtains guy at home.
Thankfully, the long walk back to Carpark E was greeted with several awaiting cabs ready to take picnickers home. Apparently the cab drivers are aware of the demand for cabs in these hours on the weekends. That was just great for us.
Well, these days have been quite unpredictable, as the weatherman has been predicting cloudy to thunderstorms... but knowing my family, they braved out the storms at the beach, regardless.
So while, Wifey and I was sheltered and warm in our bed, they braved the wind and rain that intermittently came and went. They had the clothes on their back "air-dried" the whole two days!
Though tired and a tanned even with the sun behind the dark clouds, everyone was obviously happy how the weekend turned out.
I missed the overnight camping, but the last word out was that everyone is hoping for a December barbecue. Yes!
Will look forward to another big family reunion at the beach!
