There were 2 celebrations in Ryan’s school on the 30th Sept and 2nd Oct inconjunction with Children’s Day and Mid Autumn Festival respectively.Â Further the H1N1Â advisory by MOE, the schoolÂ stepped up their hygiene measures and it has been a long while since parents were allowed to participate in theÂ school’s activities. Nonetheless,Â the school made an exemption for Mid Autumn Festival. Parents were invited. Although invites wereÂ limited to 2 pax per child but it was good enough. This would be Ryan’s last celebration at the school in view of our impending move back to KL end of the month soÂ session as suchÂ (get together for parents and child)Â was a bonus and greatly welcomed.
We have been pre empting Ryan about our move back ‘home sweet home’. I think he has a mixture of feelings. He loves KL, but at the same time, he misses his friends and school. He would always ask if Brooklyn, Aaron, Benedict and Verlynne (the few classmates he consider his best friends) would be in KL. When I answered ‘no, they won’t’ he would ask me ‘whyyyyyyyy?????’.Â
… and thenÂ there was a period of time he was very reluctant to go back KL and the reason given was because the schools in KL are smaller – something which puzzled me because as far as I know, he had no prior esposure to schools in KL and it’s simply impossible for him to have that kind of impression. Anyway, we brought him to Tadika Seri Soka to complete the enrolment process last month andÂ to our much relief,Â he seem to take on the school quite positively eventhough I know his present schoolÂ will definitely leave a lasting happy memories. I hope it would not be a too uphill transition period for the little boy.Â
In the meantime, we are still contemplating whether or not to send RyanÂ to the kindy due to some reservations on our end.Â Our first choice wasÂ Tadika Sri Cempaka, unfortunately they only take in students 5 years old (K1 and above). We have not really surveyed around. In any case, Seri Soka is our backup.

Queuing up for hand wash before snack
Lots of mooncakes, cookiesÂ on the flowÂ that day but the kids were obviously not interested while parents either too busy chit chatting or taking pictures (like me). OMG.. I’m already missing these people and place. Help!Â :(
That night I brought Ryan to the Marina Square playground again. Ryan loves the playground hereÂ as it was not crowded and importantly it’s air conditioned. I never liked to bring Ryan to the playground at our place as it’s always populated with older mischievous kids.

We decided to visit The Merlion Park before heading home. The view of Marina Bay Sands
For the first time Ryan requested us to take picture of him with the mini Merlion
