Skating at Somerset

It has taken a while to persuade the boys to go skating at Somerset skate park because the one at East Coast Park is just so good. Still, this one is just a few minutes from our place while the other is more than an hour away. After a few visits, they were finally willing to get out there and, now, they are much more comfortable and willing to do it!  Way to go, boys! And, finishing at Real Foods nearby is a nice bonus for all of us. Update: I just added a photo of Ash and I on Vesak Day in 2002 in Korea - it's the last photo on the Vesak Day post (scroll to the bottom of the page).



After a recent weekend of miniature golf, the boys were ready for the next big sport: bowling. We found some good lanes not too far from our place in Toa Payoh and had a great game!

Vesak Day

The birth, enlightenment and death of Siddartha Gautama are remembered on this important Buddhist holiday. We visited Lian Shan Shuang Lin Monastery in Toa Payoh and then took an evening walk along the Coast Boardwalk at Changi Village. As always, it was a great day out!
