On Fri, we were up early as we had to be at KDF Bishan by 830 for our outreach. We were all decked in red in the National Day Spirit. Spent a heartwarming morning reaching out to the patients and encouraging them. What a meaningful way to spend National Day. Was really blessed to be able to be a blessing to the community. Great too that we were able to participate in this as a cell group.
Steph’s birthday celebration
After that, we proceeded for lunch at Bishan Park. Found this restaurant called ‘The Cornerstone’! We had tried making reservations at ‘Grub’ and ‘Garden Canopy’ but was not successful. Food was not too bad 🙂
After lunch, we went exploring around Bishan Park. It was my first time at Bishan Park and it was quite a lovely find in this part of the island which I hardly explore. It is quite a big park … we were only in Bishan Park 2. It was a pretty sight to behold … with the ponds, shrubs and river plains. Too bad Daniel wasn’t with us…. but he had his own exciting programme with grandparents today – zoo and NDP!
Since Daniel had his own programme with grandparents, it was a great opportunity for Ivan and I to go on our own date. We wanted to catch the last few showings of Indespicable Me 2. Unfortunately, tickets were sold out. In the end, we watched Smurfs 2. Surprisingly, I enjoyed it. Thought that it was a nice movie with themes that I enjoyed – identity, family and the father figure. Ivan found it boring and said he almost fell asleep!
What a day! Nice to be toddler-free for a day 🙂
