Enjoying NDP 2009 part 3 -- A Shopping and Lunch Date With Mommy

We actually planned to go to the swimming pool with all the slides and stuff for kids at Jurong West but we were really too tired (we overestimated our stamina) and it rainned this morning. So I took the chance to sleep till 9am while Clement took care of Jaimie from 7.15am till the time I woke up.

By the time I had enough rest, Clement was dog tired from entertaining the girl. After some thoughts, I decided to bring Jaimie to Bugis for a lunch date so that Clement can have a few hours of personal time.

That's Jaimie taking the priority seat on the train.

I grabbed my foundation and blusher from Shu Uemura. Jaimie insisted on trying the lipsticks and the blusher so took some from the testers and applied for her. She thought she looked gorgeous!?!?! Then I grabbed another pair of shoes before heading to Wong Kok Cha-chan-tang, the Hong Kong Cafe which we loved, for lunch. You will be spoilt for choice at this Hong Kong Cafe.
Jaimie ordered her favourite mushroom cheese rice (highly recommended!!). She almost ate the entire portion, leaving only 2 spoonfuls unfinished.
When my chicken chop in cripsy rice (highly recommended!!) came, she helped herself to my fries.
After lunch, I walked into my favourite boutique and bought a top and a skirt. Jaimie was quite cooperative so I managed to try on another top from another boutique. Lucky for me, I am a fast and decisive shopper. I see, I try, I like, I buy. Notice the "thinking" part is missing when I am shopping.

On our way back, Jaimie fell asleep on the MRT. I used the blouse which I just bought to keep her warm. I messaged Clement to meet me at the MRT station so that he could help me to carry Jaimie as I could not manage a sleeping toddler and 2 bags.
However, the girl woke up the moment I put her on the bed. Alamak.

Anyway, it was such good bonding moments to bring Jaimie out for a date on my own. When I told her we needed to go home, she even asked me "How come so fast?"

Maybe we should do it more often!
