Shopping in Style

Lauren loves flowers. And it would seem, pink bags too. We took her down for a walk this evening after dinner as we sometimes do when time permits. This evening, she picked her pink bag from Nai-nai to carry with her, and put in it the Strawberry kitty which KGB gave her for Christmas. Then off we went for our walk. We stopped by the florist to get her a long-promised flower - she picked a yellow gerbera that matched her outfit, and paid the florist a dollar for it. All by herself. Armed with her flower and pink bag, she wasted no time in checking out the shops that were still open. What a girl she is!

Silly Nursing Room Designs

It must have been a male who designed this. Or more likely, a non-parent. For sure. Just look at where the soap dispenser is. In between the changing bed and the seat for breastfeeding mums. And where is the sink? Out of the frame to the far right. Because parents must have arms as long as Mr Tickle's that can reach some 1m away for the tap. And this is not the only silly nursing room layout at Vivo City. Another one has no changing bed, but a diaper bin right next to the chair for nursing mums. Imagine nursing your baby next to a diaper bin! This on top of the fact that the supposed Parents-cum-nursing room is within the ladies' washroom because men can't be parents taking their kids out, and in need of a place to change their babies' diapers. No wonder Singaporeans aren't having babies. The basic support structure isn't even there.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

Isn't life just meant to be taken easy? Ah... To be a baby, enjoying Sunday afternoon cartoons on Mummy and Daddy's bed. Nice.
