Family outing, but not to the doctors office

So far, everytime we packed the kids up to leave the house, it was for a doctor appointment – not today. Since its National Day in Singapore, I have the day off and decided to get up and head down for a late breakfast at the local coffee shop. As expected of new parents we packed up everything they might need and then some, loaded up the stroller and headed down the hill to Novena Velocity Mall. We found a nice little table with plenty of space to put the double long stroller beside and ordered. The food was just ok, and the Iced Tea is exactly the same as it usually is, but it was nice to be out of the house – all four of us.

We got through breakfast and even had a little more time to share a piece of cheesecake, then like a storm in Singapore, it all turned bad. Katilin started first and so I grabbed the stroller and went for a quick spin around the mall – didn’t help. Qumi then decided to feed her a bit – didn’t help. I grabbed her and headed to the bathroom for a quick change, of course there was none of those handy koala changing tables when I needed it – also didn’t stop her from crying. And that was when Kristin started…

At this point we decided to cut our losses and run down to the market to pick up some food for dinner. Qumi wound up driving them all around the market to try to keep them calm, while I picked up things for tonight (Steak, yum!).

The whole two hour outing was fun, but exhausting. This weekend is another day and can’t wait to try again – perhaps a full lunch on Saturday ♥
