We organised our little one’s birthday party as a full outdoor event. It was more like a team building exercise, incorporating horse and water elements. The party started with soccer game, while waiting for the late comers, followed by foot tag, with balloon attached on 1 leg of each participants.
The 3rd game was pony riding while carrying a tray full of glasses of water. Each team needs to assign their riders, water fillers and bucket filler at the other end. Still on the pony, the following game was egg on spoon race. The kids had a blast :-).

Don’t you just hate it when you are standing at strategic spot by the finish line, camera is ready in hand, all set up, waiting for your subject to appear. Then as he enters, one random guy just innocently passes by right in front of you, blocking all your view. I just hate it!
But I was pleasantly surprised when I uploaded my shots for that day, and it turned out that my subject was nicely framed by the arm of that dude.
But my subject, a.k.a my eldest son is not so happy, as he commented, that his picture is “inside the dude’s armpit”. 🙂

During our last camping trip, I saw these 2 boys on the raft, busy moving the net here and there. After asking around, wanting to know what kind of fish they might get at this lake, I was told that they are catching tiny little fishes, even smaller than ‘ikan teri’ or small anchovies.

When they finished their homework for the day, they treasure the 30 minutes / person / day of computer time policy. But of course kids are not stupid. From time to time their bargain would be, “If we combine our time, that means both of us can watch 1 hour of the same programme together”. 😉

Few years back, spending time in playgrounds such as this one was his favorite activity. He would tirelessly slide, climb, jump, etc. A couple of days ago, we went to a playground, and as he went up a section, I realized how much he has grown.
Please don’t grow too fast, my child.
