Picotin is this french restaurant at horse city with a large alfresco area. I like horsecity. The separate houses used to be horse stables but now have been converted into enrichment schools, spas and restaurants. It just has such a countryside feel to it and I think that was partly why I liked Stacatto! music school too, the whole environment was just so relaxed.

What's this place?

Sophia clearly liked the place enough to get into some quiet mischief.

Look, now I'm an acrobat!

The highlight of the trip though was not the freeflow of bread (to her) that she got from mummy’s plate but the rabbits next door. She was absolutely delighted to see so many rabbits running around. You can get a pack of veges ($1) or carrots ($2) to feed them with but Sophia didn’t get to do that. I didn’t think she minded a lot. She was just grinning away the moment she saw them.

No wonder dogs and rabbits consistently got nods to the “do you love XXX” question even though mummy, daddy, gong gong and po po get mixed answers depending on her mood.

Didn't get a photo of Sophia with the rabbits but in the background is the "stable" housing the rabbits






Bishan Park… again

I’m a rather uncreative mum when it comes to places to bring my little one so last Sunday we trooped off to Bishan Park again. It was rather warm when we started out so we lounged on some deck chairs eating macdonalds takeaway. Stop judging! Sophia had the corn and milk portion of the happy meal and I had the chicken nuggets and an apple pie. She didn’t even ask for nuggets which I was quite surprised about but not complaining. In fact, she was quite happy to bring her corn about and munch on it while hopping on and off the row of 3 deck chairs:

Yum corn

When the weather became cooler the dogs started coming out and that was when Sophia started getting more excited too.

Look, dog!
