hiaz... dunno whats wrong.. i am still coughing.. and went to see doctor again on sat. Given some flu and phlegm tablet, doc say need to see him in 5 days for a review. Total this round, i took 4 courses of antibotics.. abit too many i think.

After taking the med, fall asleep the whole of yesterday afternoon. Did not even go out at all. Even had our dinner downstairs only , and did some grocery shopping.
Had actually planned some task in the afternoon but all had to be put off.

Friday attended a off site training for company culture, dropped by town after the session and had some time to myself shopping at Takashimaya. Spent nearly $100 , bought some pants , toys for the kids ( Dora Treehouse for the girl and Lego for the boy )

Bought the new CITY coast guard set for the Marcus.




Today , went down to Funan Center to collect the Mininote. luckily , i did not waste my evening on Monday 21 July(1st day of collection), where all those who signed up for the promo went on that day to collect and the whole situation was in a mess.. see report in STOMP. Collection was a breeze, only took me 10 minutes to pick up the mininote from the collection counter.



After collecting it, we went down to have our lunch at the pasta restaurant on 1st floor. The kids enjoyed their lunch. Since the wet weather has started in Singapore , whereby its not so sunny. More clouds than sun, we took the long walk from Funan to Raffles shopping center... afterwhich , we made our way home...




The mininote charging at home.. hehehehe...

Taka Toy Sale started this week.. the annual crazy toy sale... but sadly this yrs toy sale is so disappointing. Hardly any good stuffs which the previous yrs sales saw...

2007 Sale - Burago Model kits , Tomica
2006 Sale - Joal Diecast , Tomicas Limited sets. , Burago
2005 Sale - TOmicas , Hotwheels, etc.

Did not spend more than $100 in this yrs sales... just bought some Corgi's set which were clearing at $5 each.. the Fire Hero Series. Sat went down again with family for lunch .. mrs bought some stuffs for the kids.. and i found a Taiyo RC Bike for $10.. bought it for Marcus to bash. By then , time was already 1 pm , and we decided to head back home.


After cleaning the kids up , i went out again to get some stuffs from SimLim , needed a adaptor to replace my faulty adaptor for my charger. Was also shopping around sungei road area and Guess what i saw a 12inch wafer SMIF pod selling at Sungei Road!!!

Tomorrow going to collect my mininote after work.. hehehehe a new toy to play ...

This songs lyrics is very very sad.. 黃昏

today's weather was great.. brought the kids down to town.. for lunch and some shopping.. Mrs Birthday is coming... what should i get?? Seems when you get older, i tend to run out of ideas. hahahaha..

The building opposite Centerpoint is nealry completed... very fast construction speed. Yesterday bought 2 tins of ICI Paint, i was supposed to touch up the house, but the laziness in me got the better. hehehe I will do it next week. At least today i fixed my USB casing which the power adaptor shorted when we came back from our japan trip. I also installed the Seagate 500GB drive which i got RMAed a while back.


I have still not fully recovered.. still has some otchy throat.. mrs is also not well. Hiaz...

Pram repaired...

one of the springs on the rear wheel of the pram gave way last week...
i did not have time to source for a replacement extension springs. So used Nylon tie to temporary hold it in place... but who knows , midweek , the nylon tie also gave way. Was telling mrs that lucky the pram did not give way when we were in Japan. I wondered what i would have done then??. I suspect the pram springs gave way due to the extra weight of Marcus

Therefore , today went out to get new springs. Found a shop at Sungei Road selling all sorts of springs ( sorry no pics as did not bring camera out ) Found what i wanted for 50 cents per piece... Great!!.. got home around 6 pm, bought a couple of new Tomica Town Series too from OG ... damage $147

The broken spring..

The replacement springs.. bought extras as spares..

Fitted in..

After fitting it in , it worked perfectly... actually comtemplating if cannot find the springs.. then we have to throw this pram away. At Least i managed to save it .. maybe for number 3??...This pram is very useful as the basket below is huge, machiam like our boot space is so big. Mrs normally dump the kids jacket in there and all the rest of the Barang Barang we bring when we go out with the kids...

Went down to the plaza for dinner and then groceries shopping at the supermarket. For this coming National Day , looks like the PA decorated the trees with white and red lights... last week i tot i took the wrong bus for Orchard when i should be going home.... the National Day decor is machiam like Orchard's Christmas decor....
