nice break

took friday off to take little bb to his art class

the sky was so dark that it looked like night time when it's not even 9am

for sure heavy rain would come and i wanted to leave home before the rain caught us

but ended up leaving home when it rained the heaviest as little bb needed to poo poo....

but we were lucky, we got a cab and didn't get too wet....

our luck continued as rain stopped when the class ended.

i knew little bb would be thrilled to take the mtr...

so we did....

my original plan was to get back home so he could have lunch, take a nap,
take the mtr to have a tram ride
and then head off to wait for daddy to get off from walk.

but as soon as our mtr ride took us to the station near home,
little bb didn't want to leave the mtr platform!

he wanted to stay on the platform so that he could watch the mtr trains come and go!
and so, the two of us kept going back and forth to each side of the platform
little bb anxiously waited for the train to appear from the dark (tunnel)...
i lost count, but i think we have watched at least 6 trains came and went!

little bb wanted to hop on the last train when i said to him that's enough
lacking a good reason to leave the platform, i made up one which he took for good.

"why don't we get out from the mtr station and see if it's still raining?
if no more rain, let's take the star ferry across the harbour!"

i could see sparkles in his eyes and for the next 10 minutes,
all i could hear was, "no rain mami!  no rain!"

and he was right!  there was no rain still!

so we walked all the way from the mtr station to the ferry pier...
the sparkles in his eyes continue to shine through....

we took the star ferry again to return to where we got on....

since we have done so much, why not take the bus too!?

so we queued at the grand bus station....

got off at the station where we could walk home...

and again, since we have done so much, why not have lunch as well?

"little bb, would you like to have lunch at home or eat out and have pasta?"

"pas ta pas ta"!!!!

alright!

pasta, here we came!

little bb did quite well with the soup, bread....  i mean he ate and drank by himself...
when the pasta was brought to our table, he was sooo happy and contented...
he ducked in right away...

i was excited too as i thought he could finish his serving....
but it was just wishful thinking.....
after around 6 spoonfuls.... he started falling asleep!

so i had to have all the food packed to bring home...

lucky us again, it wasn't raining....

as we reached the mall near home, little bb suddenly became wide awake again
and said "super market, shop!"

he pushed the shopping cart around the shop and kept putting things into the cart...
"this one daddy
this one mami....." (when grabbing a pack of frozen cake)

"water" (when grabbing a bottle of vinegar!!!!)

"juice!" (when grabbing a pack of yakult)

in the end, he was only allowed a pack of yakult.

extremely tiring trip....  but it was lovely being out with little bb.

we both napped on the sofa until daddy came home from work
and we went out again for more fun...


tomorrow is back to work for me
and back to school for little bb...

felt like i have been on vacation for almost two weeks
with the easter holidays, day off and local public holiday....

i am sure it will take some time to adjust myself back to real life!
