Yay! We are officially halfway there and we are taking the summer activities very slowly right now. Both children’s energy levels are unrelenting and it’s me who is struggling to keep up!
M for Macaroni
Macaroni is one of my children’s favourite pasta and we probably have it every two weeks! It’s a great versatile dish.
M for Market
Market is a great place for children to learn about their daily foods. Recently, we went to a wet market where they sold fish and all kinds of seafood. Both children were very excited but at the same time, felt disgusted to see all the dead fishes. I am not expert but my dad did pass down his own trick to choosing the freshest fish by making sure the skin is firm and the eyes look bright.
M for Maze
If you have read about our adventure at the National Forest Adventure Farm, you may have seen that we had ventured into the maize maze and it was a lot of fun!
M for Money
My grandma recently passed away and she had left us (all her grandchildren) a bag of old Singapore coins. I am so pleased to receive them and I was able to show it to my children.
Also in the Chinese calendar, this month is the seventh month ghost festival, so we burned a box full of paper money for my dad!
M for Mooncake
Mid-autumn festival is coming soon and everywhere in Singapore, people are buying mooncake to give to their friends and relatives. Mr C had not tried all the different mooncake flavours and coincidentally we came across a mooncake exhibition. So we walked through all the stands and tasted all the uniquely flavoured fillings. We came across the a durian mooncake, Chocolate skin mooncake and many more! It was a great experience especially for Mr C as the usual mooncakes we normally get are the traditional lotus seed types.
Now I can’t wait to get the ingredients to make mooncakes to try out!
M for Movie
Mr C took Mr K to watch Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. It was about one hour and fifty minutes long but both of them really enjoyed it and would recommend it if you like sci-fi movies. Mr K was so excited to tell me the whole plot and how he loves the weird and wonderful characters in the show!
Ciao for now and I hope you can join in with us for the letter N!
