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.
Sophia clearly liked the place enough to get into some quiet mischief.
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.
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:
When the weather became cooler the dogs started coming out and that was when Sophia started getting more excited too.
When Sophia was pointing happily at the dogs a caucasian armed with a digital SLR was snapping away at her. I was tempted to ask for a copy of the photos but he quickly made a getaway when he saw me looking at him.
A malay family joined us on the neighbouring deck chair and at one point another baby about the same age as Sophia came over too. The younger malay girl looked at the 2 babies then pointed at Sophia and said something something lagi cute. Which I took to mean Sophia is cuter haha..
Here’s the family eating their macdonalds dinner as Sophia looks on with envy.
She then proceeded to rummage our rubbish bag for any leftovers, of which there was of course none, other than corn which she had accidentally dropped on the floor.
She decided that my eyedrops were more fun. Look how she applies eyedrops:
After the malay family went away, a taiwanese family took over the deck chair next to ours and Sophia happily went to join them too. The little girl in the picture was just 2 days older.
Soon dark clouds started gathering and we decided to make our way home. Along the way Sophia didn’t miss the chance to play the fool:
