Fun & Fit Friday!

It's been a while since I've posted here. Last Friday was the kids' kindy Fun & Fit Day, where they had a chance to display what they had learnt in school as well as participate in some fun telematches orchestrated by the teachers! The event ended off with a pancake-decorating session which the kids enjoyed thoroughly!

In the afternoon, we hopped over to the Navy Open House. It was preview day, and considerably less crowded than when it is open to the public! Here is a pic of the kids with their life jackets onboard RSS Vigilance:

We also found a new golf school for C & R, since the last instructor for R didn't work out. Their first lesson is this Saturday! :)

New interests.

This weekend, something happened! I developed an interest in some new hobbies!

Golf. Dh bought me a golf set this weekend! We started out bringing R for his first golf lesson at Keppel Club, and on Sunday, when we went shopping to kit him up properly for his next lesson, guess what we bought instead? A half-set for me! These aren't the newest clubs in town but hey, I'm not a pro either. And besides, they look great :) I actually played about 15 yrs back, and now I'm starting again! My first golf lesson is next week, with a Tobey Maguire look-alike :) Well, a cute coach is always an incentive! Dh is the happiest I'm picking the game up, he's been bugging me for a couple of years now!

Sewing. OK, I can't say I've done much about this. I probably last sewed 10 yrs or more ago. But when your sister is crazy about sewing and keeps buying lovely fabrics, a new machine, and pattern books, how do you stay neutral? I've got my eye set on this pattern:

I'm taking over my mum's sewing machine that has just been serviced and repaired, and I hope to be able to post my first work soon!

I have a history of having short-lived hobbies (save for things like reading, and shopping. LOL). Scrapbooking is about the longest-lived hobby I've had so far (2 yrs and counting) and I hope I will stay the course for my new hobbies ! What's your longest lasting hobby?

Finally I have uploaded the pics from my camera! Enjoy....

You can see more at my Flickr account.

While waiting for my Flickr to upload, I decided to blog about a movie I saw yesterday. Music and Lyrics is a wonderfully romantic and funny flick, and I highly recommend it to anyone who has lived through the eighties! It's super fun and romantic!

ETA: why are my pics so pixelised!?

I've been tagged by Sasha!

Here are 7 quirks or interesting things about me:

1. I can't sleep without something covering my legs.
2. I am paranoid about my hair.
3. I only eat KFC's coleslaw with whipped potato, never alone.
4. I love scaring myself silly with scary books or movies. All time favourite: The Ring. (Japanese version)
5. My maths sucks. Really. (Now you know why I take so long to total up bills for TVC)
6. I can't draw a straight line, even with a ruler. It's always tilted up or down for some reason!
7. I think (or am quite sure) I'm addicted to the internet.
