Time For A Cuppa: First Professional Haircut

Normally, the children have their hair cut either by my Mum or myself. For Little Man, this usually involves an iPad or a movie on the TV, with his shirt off and powder on hand. As I'm no professional, it usually takes me quite a while. The results vary, depending on how cooperative he was that particular session. The results range from great to very patchy.

My Mum cuts Little Lady's hair as I have absolutely no confidence to do so, being more familiar with boys' hair.

However, with my cousin's wedding looming, and Little Man with his role as the ring bearer, I figured that he should finally go for a professional haircut, given our previous inconsistency.

First in the toy train chair was Little Man. I was a little apprehensive about how he would react as he did not always take kindly to having his hair cut. He refuses to have anything around his neck, and would be disturbed by the hair falling on him (hence the powder).

A little ticklish.

Facinated with the apron.

Keeping his ears safe.

A little concerned.

The finished look.

Next, it was Little Lady's turn. I was less worried about her reaction.

It started well.

So far so good. Losing the length.

A little concerned.

I think she has had enough.

"I don't like the hair dryer!"

"I really don't like it!"

The finished product. (Taken on a separate day.)

How did your kiddos take to their first haircut?

Free Fun Friday: Fire Station Open House

Every Saturday morning, from 9 am till 11am, fire stations across the island hold open houses (with the exception of the one on Jurong Island). Since we live approximately 5 minutes away, we visited the Sengkang Fire Station.

It apparently serves the largest area/boundary of all the fire stations, from Pulau Ubin to Braddell.

We were given a demontration of how quickly a fire fighter needs to put on his gear (1 min 15 seconds).

Little Lady enjoyed the ambulance most, primarily because its airconditioner was on.

While we were there, one of the ambulances was sent out on a call. I think is was a false alarm, because it came back shortly.

The highlight of the trip was when Little Man had a chance to try out the fire hose. He got to turn it off and on again! Super cool!

With Firefighter Kumar, who took really good care of us during our visit.

Fun aside, these brave men and women have a tough job - 24 hour shifts, lifting heavy loads, hot uniforms, risking their lives whenever there is a fire... but a very important job. We are very grateful for the the firefighters and paramedics of Sengkang Fire Station, and all the other fire stations in Singapore and the world over.

Time For A Cuppa: Wedding

Two Saturdays ago, my cousin got married.

Little Man was the ring bearer. Here he is looking dapper.

We had arrived at the church a little earlier so that the children could get comfortable before the crowd arrived.

With his cousin the flower girl.

A nice moment between the beautiful bride, the flower girl and the father of the bride/grandfather of the flower girl.

Little Man did really well walking down the aisle.

The wedding banquet that night was a delicious affair at the Grand Hyatt. I thought the open concept kitchen was really cool. I had never seen that at a banquet before.

What was really fun was the photo booth that was set up. Lots of nice, fun, wacky photos.

Congratulations, Shulin and Lionel! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
