Summer Dayz

As far as holidays go, we toggle between really well planned and totally last minute. The latter usually happens when D has a business trip and I do the tag-along. 

This year, however, with school work and all, my travel wings are a little tied up. Which is okay because I love spending time at home.

The husband has been cray cray busy at work. To add to his portfolio, he's opened a new casual eatery, with our good friend. Some days, it's impossible to get hold of the man. Needless to say, we had no definite plans for our annual summer vacay.

So when the June holidays approach, I told him, we need to go somewhere for a bit with the kids. We tossed a few ideas in the air and in the end, it was between San Francisco or Europe. 

Because he likes to explore new places, Europe won!!

What can I say? We had the best time. This really ranks as the most relaxing holiday we have had so far. From the busy city of London, to the warmth and to die for views of Mykonos and Santorini and lastly, good old ancient Rome.

I really love traveling with my kids at this stage of their lives. Their curiosity, love for new people and all things water sports, and just generally being really well behaved for their parents.

I couldn't give thanks for more.

Till the next one!

Dogsitting Muu

The kids have been asking for a little pups for quite a while now. 

Life has been rather busy lately so it's kinda on the back burner. We are also quite certain that we want to either adopt or buy from a reputable breeder, so certainly it won't be a quick process.

So, darling Z, who spoils these kids silly, asked if we could dog sit for a weekend as she was going away. And immediately I said, "YES YES YES!" (But kept it quiet till the day before Muu Muu arrived.)

And what a weekend it was!

From the minute he was dropped off, he was the center of these kids' universe. They fed him, cuddled him, walked him and just fussed over him. He was hardly left alone. In fact, we took him everywhere.

Korkor K was the one who put him to bed every night and looked for him the first thing in the morning. He reluctantly left him behind when he has rugby or music lessons but other than that he's always wanting to cuddle him.

Mei mei, was surprisingly quite a good sitter. She walked him, fed him and even fought with her korkor over where muu muu should sleep with at nights. Poor Muu! Being tussled between the two!

And on the day, he went home, she walked him a final time and said "I'm not going to be okay because I love Muu Muu." 

Even Jake got into the cuddling action!! Which is really big cos he's not a big fan of dogs (even though he was born in the year of one! Go figure!!

And they all missed him when he went home. =(

It was such a wonderful way to see these kids learn about being responsible for a pet. It's such a pleasant glimpse into the future. Hopefully, we can find a little pup that would join us soon!
