Things That Benson Enjoys Doing

Because Papa Ben needs to work on Last Saturday... I decided to bring Benson out for some fun since the haze is better... =)  I didn't wanna go too far because I was still a little sick & weak due to the drowsy medication that I took for my sinus & cough.. We head off after Benson woke up from his nap... =) Ate fish soup with rice opp compass point.. Then take a slow walk to the mall... Went to the arcade since Benson love playing game so much.. He is super thrilled! He jumping up & down & say " Yeah Yeah, Game " .. Of course I feel happy too because I know this is what he enjoys.. Cannot imagine how time flies now.. Benson is already 3 Years 5 months old... Looking back at those previous post... Now he is already so big... =) He Weights 15kg, Height 93 now...! So tall liao... Like daddy... Now bringing him out is really much more easier than last time.. =)

A relaxing day for both of us.. But too bad Daddy gotta work.. After Game, We bought Ice cream before heading back home.. A Happy Mummy & A Happy Little Boy... ^^

Sunday Papa Ben says we shall go to Wild Wild Wet! Went Facebook to check out their page to double confirm if they are open because they are closed the past few days due to haze... Hehe... They are open! Since we are still early & the sun is burning hot! We go for some bowling session first.. Hehe.. One of Benson fav too... LOL This time we let him fit into the smallest bowling shoes they have.. Which is size 1.. Still a little big... But.. is stick on.. So we give it a try! .... Guess what! that sticky thingy on the shoes is so irritating! It keep unstick & Benson having a little trouble walking in it... I suggest he changed back to his own shoes but he insisted he wanted to wear the bowling shoes.. Well.. let it be.. =) Benson wanna to be more independent now.. He wants to carry the bowling ball himself.. but of course with Daddy's help to pass him the ball.. He carry it all the way to the lane & roll it... Haha.. & when he comes back to the sitting area.. he will give us a High Five... After bowling session we went to have some food before heading to wild wild wet... Too bad that Taiwan stall is pack with people.. no seat at all.. So i suggested to go to that noodle stall 2 shops away... =.= After eating that noodle.. While we are playing happily inside wild wild wet.. I had very bad tummy ache... Well.. I didn't know is it because of the noodle.. But I feel sick in the tummy... Luckily It didn't ruin our family outing... Went home to take some medicine to ease the ache.. =)

Look at those cute little bowling shoes

The only time that Benson can sit quietly playing is when he play puzzle.. & I'm surprise that he love playing that.. Because I intro puzzle to him before but he had not much interest then... Glad that he love it! Because I feel puzzle does do some benefit while playing...

By Playing Puzzle It can Helps:

Problem solving

Even the simplest of puzzles require toddlers to think and develop different approaches to achieve a single goal. They analyze and use their grey matter as they put together the pieces of the puzzles. These toys directly impact their problem solving and reasoning skills which help them grow well in their professional as well as personal life.

Cognitive skills

Apart from solutions and reasoning, toddlers learn shapes, colors, sizes and a deeper understanding of how a small unit forms a part of the whole set. The puzzles may vary depending upon their theme and can be helpful in solidifying the basics like alphabets, numerals, animals, fruits and much more.

Hand eye coordination

While putting the right shapes into their correct spaces or putting together pieces of a castle, toddlers work on their hand eye coordination. The wrong piece obviously does not fit and they have to try all over again. This trial and error helps them to do what they actually see.

Motor skills

Solving a puzzle requires children to pick up the objects, sort them, slot them and fit them without any breakage so these educational toys refine their motor skills. Motor skills are required for eating, writing and for manipulating almost anything.


The kind of satisfaction children get from solving the entire puzzle is unmatched by any other kind of toy. Their self confidence increases manifolds by the accomplishment and the praise that follows thereafter. As the games get more challenging, they also learn other social skills like the importance of cooperative play, how to take things to their completion, how to handle frustration and never-say-die attitude.

While exercising is meant to keep the body fit, puzzles and mind teasers for toddlers are meant to keep their mind fit. These educational toys prepare children early in life for the competitive world out there without compromising on fun. Give you child the best puzzles and let them face the world with confidence.

Art Time! Benson is always interested in Art since I first intro him when he is nearly 2 years old... We did, printing, sticking, paint, coloring before... This time.. We used Potato to do the prints! Hehe... He had a great time printing lots of colors with the potato.. Next time we shall cut some veg to do some more beautiful prints..

Weekend Sand Play

2 Weeks not able to go to mum place because Nephew is having chicken pox... Honestly.. I missed them.. But no choice.. To prevent spreading to Benson I have to forgo going to mum place.. Even I know Benson took the jab for chicken pox already.. But still... Just to be safe... =)

I'm so happy doesn't have to work this weekend.. Means more family time together.. Since we not able to go mum place.. We decided to bring Benson to Waterway for cycling & sand play.. We skip the waterplay this time because he had just recovered from flu.. We enjoyed our relaxing weekend... After park we went to have our dinner then back home.. We are dying for a shower.. Lately weather is super duper hot.. I can't even feel my air con at all.. Hmm.. Need to do some air con servicing liao... Haze is back... I smell it on Friday.. My nose is super sensitive to the smell of haze... & I get sore throat too when haze come.. So remember to drink more water!


Unconditional Love

Being in a Marriage We learned to Appreciate Each Other, We learned Respect, We learned Trust, & We learned What True Love really is... When We step into Parenthood.. We learned how to be more Patience, We learned Care, We learned What Unconditional Love really is...

I Feel I'm those type who express my love pretty well ( Thick face ) haha... If Hub Ben on late shift.. I would go to the door & give him a good bye kiss on his lips... When back home about 80% of the time I will kiss him on his lips too unless I'm busy with something else.. Haha.. Even when Benson or Mother in law is in front of us.. Still I will kiss him... Because I always feel that we should express more love to those who we love & care.. Even to Our parents.. & I know not many people does that.. As they tends to be more shy.. More reserve about their feelings... Benson learned to express more love to us & people who he loved around him.. Think our love somehow taught him something.. Which is very positive teaching... =)

" “What it's like to be a parent: It's one of the hardest things you'll ever do but in exchange it teaches you the meaning of unconditional love.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Wedding " 


Benson took this pic for us.. Haha..

Vivo Hot Wheels & Barbie Fair

Went to Vivo on Sunday! Had Asia Kitchen for Lunch... Then went to walk around.. & saw there is Barbie & Hot Wheels Fair... Bought a Basic Set of Hot Wheels for Benson & a New backpack for him to bring to school... His previous bag is spoilt! So fast.. Only 4 months only... So decided not to buy those trolley ones anymore! Trolley ones when u carry on shoulder is not comfortable at all! & is much heavier.... I don't know why Benson keep complaining of Tummy ache when is come to meal time... Don't know is it true a not! But sometime it kinda worries me.. As he has been complaining ever since the last vomit & tummyache 3 weeks ago... Seen Doctor.. get him checked.. & he say all is fine.. Well.. I really don't know.. Just hope everything is fine... But anyway.. before going back home.. We bought those Japan fruit tart! Is so yummy.... But is ex too.. One slice is already about $7... But once a while i think pamper ourself is fine.. =) We had enjoyed our weekend so much... & Now Benson is older.. He understands more.. & Able to control his temper well now.. So outing is much much easier now... I'm proud of my boy..

Had bought medicine for my hand... & had been putting it for a few days now.. Honestly.. It hurts.. =( Hopefully it will be clear soon!

Benson with His New Hot Wheels Bagpack.. He look so cute in it!!
