2D2N Family OutingMarch 01, 2016
Hello everyone! It's the first day of March and I'm bringing you a super long post to fill your appetite and to make up for the lack of posts recently! :D If you noticed, which I'm sure you did, I finally changed my blog template and now it is.... fully responsive and mobile friendly yay!
I know that many of us don't really use our laptop or desktop to read blogs anymore, so hopefully changing to a responsive template will allow you all to have a better experience when reading my blog because I AM GOING TO BLOG MORE AND MORE AND MORE starting from now! *throws confetti*
I think people who have been following me, will know why there is lack of updates here. Yes, not only because of my job previously but also... my expectation of the pictures or content that I'm putting up here kinda got higher and higher over the time and I cannot accept posting pixelated phone quality pictures up here anymore. AND I KNOW, some of you have been telling me that IT DOESN'T MATTER AT ALL.
Yes, but I didn't listen and most of the time editing pictures takes up about 85% of the time when I need to blog, so ended up... I always never get anything up because it really takes up too much time to do so!
Especially when I work in the day and go back home at night, I really do not have the energy to edit photos anymore. I just wanna let my brain rest a bit haha. One of my friend was telling me this the other day, that I shouldn't treat my blog as work and I should just write whatever I want without having to plan and edit them like my day job. I think it's really a job hazard thing, but I definitely think I should cut myself some slack for my blog post and just enjoy doing it. I still feel it's a pretty good outlet for me to express myself, so I'm still going to continue blogging. And at the same time, I'm also going to also vlog more on my personal channel starting from now! Just in case when Randy is busy (like recently), and there are no updates on #BenRanAway, you all still can watch me on my own channel! Anyway, back to the template! I managed to changed it by myself the other time, with some help from the team of Bthemez. Thanks to them for helping too!
For this post, I took all the pictures using my phone, so don't expect good quality pictures but I'm happy that I get to capture down all the moments that my family had done for consecutively 2 days straight! :D
Spending quality time with my parents at IKEA as we decided to do some shopping there!
First meal of the day, curry chicken noodles! Just so-so only.
Not drinking tea or coffee, but I opt for mineral water instead. #AmIHealthyYet?
With dad! I don't know what was he pointing at lol.
Random shot because I can. Actually iPhone takes pretty decent quality picture tbh.
But I'm not so sure about the front camera though. Anyway, selfie with dad!
Thank you for doing this with me lol. #ilovemyparents
Some of the stuff we bought! I decided to get for my parents and Randy a quilts set each because it is super comfortable! I also gotten mine from IKEA and everyday I feel like I'm staying at hotel with the quilt okay!
IKEA ice cream!
Done with our shopping! Going to bring all of them back home first!
We also bought snacks and hotdog bun back home! Yum!
Just nice I was test driving Volkswagen Scirocco for that day too, so it's a pretty 'apt' time to go shopping at IKEA! ;) Going IKEA shopping without a car is kinda troublesome imo, so luckly us!
After we brought back home all our shopping loots, I was craving for my daily intake of fruit juice, so I headed over to The Grandstand with my mum to have fruit juice! Talking about satisfying my cravings lol!
Bought a bottle of sparkling water because who doesn't love sparkling water? Not me.
Mum took this picture of me before leaving The Grandstand. I really love this picture, nice shot mum!
Heading to CBD area to fetch Randy from work, we are going to the East to have dinner! #sincewehavecartodrive #whynotright
Dad brought us to Leong Ji Seafood Changi, our first time here! We love zi char!
Kung pao chicken!
Curry fish head!
Omg my favourite, cereal prawns!
For vegetable, we had spinach!
After we are done eating, we went to Loyang Tua Pek Kong!
Family group shot after we are done with praying.
Went to Bugis for dessert before heading back home, I had watermelon and honeydew sago! I'm seriously craving for it now omg. Super yum!
On our way back home after a really long day! *yawns*
Casual outfit for second day! Wearing Ran's cap for a change!
iPhone selfie! Super pixelated though hahaha!
Starting the day by eating again! At The Public Izakaya by Hachi for lunch!
Mum and dad while waiting for our food.
Oden! I super love!
Crab with fish meat!
This is super delicious too!
About to finish our lunch! Wefie time!
Went to Tom N Toms for coffee while waiting for Ran to end work!
I think I'm the only one that changed my expression in the photos lol.
For dinner, we decided on Chomp Chomp! It was my parents first time eating there! Parked the car but we didn't have coupon, so dad went to buy them and we decided to snap some pictures.
With Ran! Really happy that I'm able to drive my family around especially with the Scirocco, because it's really smooth. My dad love driving it too. I think I'm going to have a car withdrawal syndrome after returning it.
After dad returned with parking coupons, it's time for food at Chomp Chomp! Fried oysters!
Satay bee hoon!
BBQ chicken wings omg loving it!
The 2 that always drink tsk!
Oh mum why are you looking so sian lol!
Went to Mustafa for late night shopping!
Ovaltine cereal! We bought 1 box to try.
We also bought some of these drinks that we never tried before. I also bought some travel size fragrance too!
Can you believe where we were going after that? For supper omg!
Prawn noodles for supper! Comfort food! ;)
Had cheng teng for dessert! Then we all went back home because we were all really tired out!
Nothing beats spending quality time with my family and I'm glad all of us had fun travelling around, shopping, exploring and eating together. It's nice to bring my parents around to try different things because they don't get to do that very often. I urge you all to find some time off your busy schedule and spend time with your family. Life is so fragile and you will never know what will happen the next second. Thank you for reading as always, more update will be coming up soon! Hope you enjoyed this long entry! :D
