Sarah Reads

Coming home from ballet at Tampines, we got stopped at the lights at a T-junction. Sarah suddenly asked,

"Mommy, is that the way to Saint Anne's?"

"No. We're in Tampines. Saint Anne's is in Sengkang."

"Why does it say "Saint"?"

"Where?"

"There!", she said, pointing right in front of us.

I looked hard. There was "Tampines North Primary School" in big letters on the builing up ahead. In front of that was a big green directional signboard with arrows to various parts of Tampines. I couldn't for the life of me see "saint" anywhere.

"Where, Sarah?"

"There! In front of the two numbers!"

Then I noticed this on the signboard:

St 42 - 45

It was so uncannily like Matthew's Punggol Doctor episode!!

Sunday Swimming

Finally, we got a sunny day, good for a swim. When we arrived at my brother's condo with the kids already sitting in their swimsuits in the car, it was crowded so we had to park at the second floor of the visitor's carpark. Sarah asked,

"How are we going to get down?"

Sean jokingly replied, "Ah, I know, we're just beside the pool so I can just throw you down, straight into the water. OK?"

Sarah retorted, "Noooo! We still have our shoes on!!"

Marriage In Progress...

In an intimate blur the years peel by
The new ones' nuances firmly in the fore
And still we strive to simplify
This love, our life of two times four
