Short Takes

Short Take #1: Merdeka!

Our Merdeka celebration: Since the boys had a late nap and woke up only about 6pm, I though we could go out to watch some fireworks. So grandpa, grandma the two boys and I drove up to a hill somewhere in Cheras to have a clear view of the Petronas Twin Towers. Much to our disappointment, there was no fireworks. It was only later through e-mail, that I found out that there was a fiesta down at the twin towers and fireworks were only let off at about 1am. We were all in bed by then.

Short Take #2: Swiss Ms

Got a post card from my old pal (she is actually half Swiss) who was in Switzerland for a family reunion. Great to get something lovely and personal in the mail box rather than all the junk mails and bills.

Thanks, Lynn.

Short Take #3: Ikea

We went to Ikea today to look at some shelves and a table for me, which we need desperately to get My world a bit more organised. The boys had fun running through all the "rooms". Finally we took off for a late lunch at FastaPasta (great food, but the drinks burned a big hole in the wallet). By then Micah was tired and, complaining of a tooth ache, fell asleep and missed all the good stuff. Max ate well and after a while realised the brother was missing. "Koh-koh?" he asked, gesturing empty hands. Then when daddy told him where Micah was, Max was delighted to discover his brother fast asleep on the seat. Glad we took the booth seats.

Found this website that you can check out for some home projects with your boys !

This one is about rain drops...but there seems to be other home experiments as well....
