Sunday Funday

Instead of the usual shopping malls and coffee shops, we met up with some friends for “Sunday Funday” on the Singapore River. Today, Sunday Funday is much more grown up then what used to happen in NYC, here we meet up with our kids, eat a proper breakfast, and worry about which place has a diaper changing table. The NYC version had me up at 6am to catch the Man U match and about 8 beers, then Spicy Rednecks and PBR Tall Boys from Crif Dogs, a quick nap at home and out to catch the Jets lose game after game.

Since I wanted a well deserved pint or several, we jumped in the taxi with the kids in their carriers. Kaitlin didn’t look to happy first thing in the morning, but she settled in nicely and slept most of the morning.

Hey, where are you taking me so early?

Kristin was a little better, but also slept most of the morning.


We choose the Boomarang Bar in Robertson Quay, a great Aussie bar and grill that is family friendly and serves one of the best breakfasts in Singapore, along with Magners & Bullmers Cider over ice.

I think Owen was getting a bit bored sitting around the table while the adults drank and talked. He certainly kept his dad busy running around the river side.


Here is Asuka holding Kaitlin giving us a few great moments to watch the England vs New Zealand match.


I have learned that taller bottles allow for easier drinking – not for the kids, but for me. As seen below, you can use your chin to hold the bottle freeing up your other hand for your pint.

Using the chin to hold the bottle, while sipping your pint - that's ingenious.

Owen really got a kick out the ice, Wayne was happy too since it wasn’t at home and didn’t have to clean up afterwards.
