Father’s Day 2015

This is a belated Father’s day post!

We celebrated Father’s Day this year on 21 Jun by going cycling!

Started the day with a lovely brunch at Chock Full of Beans. After that, we went cycling at Changi Beach. This is the first time we are cycling together as a family and it was pretty fun. Even baby got to cycle with us in his baby seat!

Appreciate my dad for being such a constant figure of stability in my life. Blessed with good parents who provide and care for us in the best way they can and know how to. I never doubt their love for me and helps me to understand how much more my heavenly Father loves me. One time the Lord spoke to me how much He loves me through this verse.

“When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care of me.” Ps 27:10

I began to have an insight of the depth of his love for me. I know my parents will never forsake me. But I understood that even if I ever experience rejection from them, the Father’s love for me is so deep and He will never forsake me. Indeed we can never fully comprehend with our finite mind the depths of the Father’s love for us. We need regular encounters with Him and revelations of His love for us, so that we will never leave our first love for Him and forget how much He loves us.

Sentosa Staycation Jun 2014

Due to the pregnancy, I am grounded and unable to take the plane for this year (we did not want to take any unnecessary risks). Hence for the Jun holidays, it was just a one night staycation at Sentosa during the weekend as Ivan just had his long mc due to his fracture and could not take more leave.

It was short but fun. Thank God that we were all well. For the past few months, Daniel and I have been taking turns to come down with cough which was really irritating and quite disruptive to our lives! This time round, we stayed at Amara Sanctuary Resort. Was in quite a relax mode, so did not take many pictures.

We started the staycation with the Dora the Explorer Musical showing at Resorts World. Although he is a boy, Daniel’s all-time favourite is Dora the Explorer and her cousin Diego. He was all so excited and really enjoyed the musical. Personally, I was quite bored and almost fell asleep halfway! He liked it so much that he cried when the show ended!

We checked into the hotel and the boy had his afternoon nap while we just chillaxed in the hotel room.

When he woke up and we wanted to go out, it was pouring! We waited for the hotel shuttle bus. By the time the bus came, the rain was getting lighter, so we decided to head down to Palawan Beach. Happened to bump into a friend who works in Sentosa and he recommended us quite a yummy zi char stall at the Palawan Beach food court! We had rice and a few dishes and the food was really yummy! It was already dark by the time we reached Palawan Beach but we decided to spent the next morning here.

The next morning, we had breakfast at MacDonald’s and then headed down to Palawan Beach. Spent a good part of the morning having fun with sand and water play. We built a sand castle. We tried walking back to our hotel and realised that it was just a 10 minute walk from the beach! We headed back and spent some time at the hotel swimming pool before checking out.

After checking out, we walked to Palawan beach again and brought the boy for activities at the Playmobil event going on at the same time- story telling, dancing and playpit. What I found really cool was that we did not have to pay at all for the entire morning’s activities!

After lunch, we watched the bird show near the beach and headed home.

I was exhausted but happy 🙂 Really thank the Lord for His goodness. Though I can’t travel and this family staycation is really short, we did have quite a fun time together as a family.
