Happy day full of activities :)

This morning I finally saw my son again. He just had 3 days 2 nights school learning journey's trip to Malacca. It was his first time having a trip outside Singapore with his friends and teachers.

My hubby gave him RM100 as a pocket money - in case he wanted to buy or eat something. However, he used only less than RM15 and that included a lovely gift from his heart especially for me - a Doraemon's passport cover!!! :)

The first gift purchased by my dear Baobei :)

Last week when I passed his passport to him at home, I also passed my passport's cover for him. I said it was too thick for me. And since I gave mine to him, I was left with nothing. So I was surprised that he could buy that for me in return! Thank you dear Baobei!!! And his father received 2 sachets of Malacca white coffee as a gift, that he got from his friends :D

This afternoon I met up with my 2 besties. We had a wonderful brunch at Din Tai Fung, a Taiwan originated restaurant, specialising in Xiao Long Bao or soup dumpling. It wasn't ordinary meeting up session, but also to celebrate Aileen's belated Birthday!!! ^^

Thank you Shelly for treating us delicious Birthday's brunch :)

We ate and chit chatted. After that we headed to another place to have our long waited Bing Soo or Korean dessert - red bean with ice and milk :)

The initial place that we wanted to go was closed. Luckily there was another shop not so far from there, which offered a great place to hang out with a great taste and unique presentation of the Bing Soo! ;)

Pot Bing Soo and Som Som Espresso Banana @Banana Tree :)

Yes, the place was called Banana Tree Café!!! It's a chain from South Korea, located at 26 Keong Saik Rd.

Since we were still quite full, three of us shared a pot of Bing Soo decorated with a stalk of -fake- sunflower ($12.50/portion) and a cup of Som Som Latte with Espresso and banana, topped with a candy floss and a tiny bit of marshmallow  ($7/cup).

They also sold pots of pudding topped with assorted flowers at $6.50 each (see the photo above - 3 flower pots in the middle). It's really great especially when the weather outside was really hot!!!

In the evening my son and I joined the San Bu Yi Bai 三步一拜 (three steps one bow), this year at Fo Guang Shan temple or 佛光山侍 at Punggol, together with PY and PW. We changed the venue this year since we couldn't get the ticket at Kong Meng San monastery at Bishan last week.

We were lucky we managed to do it here though as this was the first time they held it in relation to celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the temple.

Vesak Day at Fo Guang Shan - San Bu Yi Bai

Before started we gathered at the main hall and recited few Buddhist chanting. Once done we slowly walked out to the opposite ground and then to the roadside. It took us almost two hours and we ended it with another chanting. I was very grateful for the chance given to us. My son has done it much better this time. I'm very proud of him! :)

We had vegetarian food after that and finally headed home. It was such a long day full of activities. Although tired and pain, it was all worth it! :)

Vesak day is coming in two days time. Here, I wish everyone Happy Vesak Day! Sabbe Satta Bhavantu Sukhitatta. May all sentient beings be happy! :) Sadhu Sadhu Sadhu Wish everyone enjoy your long holiday! :)
