***18th February 13***
It was one of a rare Monday that Papa Yap was on leave and we decided to bring the kids out for some family time. Our initial plans was to bring Darian to Polliwogs before going to the Sentosa Flower exhibit and Hong bao river but I had actually overlooked the dates. Both event had ended the day before. I am such a muddlehead for sure, assuming that they would only end on the last day of CNY. Well no choice but to wait till next year then. So there was a change of day itinerary.
Changed his uniform in the car.
Hmm… Where are we going? 😉
We headed to Mushroom Cafe for lunch right after fetching Darian from school. This time round Papa Yap tried the Laska and I ordered the Nasi Lemak. According to him, the Laska tastes good and he doesn’t mind coming back for it. For me, I think I will not order the Nasi Lemak again. It was not up to my expectation for sure. Weather was pretty good and breezy and we were hoping that it would remain as good for our late noon walk at Garden by the bay.

Off to Polliwogs at Robertson Walk after lunch. Darian took a nap throughout the journey to Robertson Walk. He was all hyped up upon reaching there. How can he not be happy? Haha. We loved coming to such places on a weekday whereby there is no crowd at all. As it was a weekday, there is no limitation to the number of hours of play. We were there for almost three hours. Darian surely enjoyed himself very much. However, our plan of going to the garden by the bay was again dashed with the heavy downpour at about 4pm. *sigh* Thus we went to Kovan instead for dinner before heading back home. It was still a happy day for us especially Darian who gets to play at Polliwogs. 🙂

Dinner at the Mushroom Cafe was good! The food is to our likings and not expensive at all. Mushroom Cafe is actually managed by Old Chang Kee. This explains why the finger food all taste so familiar. The place would remind you of a simple canteen, nothing fanciful but I like it. This is my second time there(check out my first visit) and I think we will definitely revisit again. We had fishballs, french fries, nuggets, chicken stew with rice, mee rebus and mushroom soup for dinner. Both Papa Yap and I think that the chicken stew is tasty. The savoury sauce surely goes very well with the rice and it makes you feel like eating more. Yums! The mee rebus was not too bad either, comparable to the standard at Qiji. What I like about the menu is that you have the option to choose rice, noodles, or loaf for most of the main courses. 🙂 So if you fancy a simple, filling and decent meal in the park, I think Mushroom Cafe is an excellent place for it. 🙂
We had brought along the wooden bike(passed down from Jeff) for Darian to ride around the park as well and he enjoyed it. He was going around in it before and after dinner. Really kept him occupied and entertained. 🙂
After a filling dinner, we had a stroll around the park before heading back home. Weather was really chilly and I can’t wait to get into the car.
Yet another awesome day with my loves.
Drove down to Sengkang Riverside Park with darling Darian to meet my ex-colleagues for a late lunch, leaving Papa Yap to babysit Baby Dyann. This group of ladies who are like my big sisters and mummies has always remember my birthday and never fail to organise a gathering session around my birthday. Thank you for the vouchers and red packet as well! 🙂 This time round, Auntie Liew suggested to meet up at the Mushroom Cafe. This place is definitely not of any atas cafe. It is just a sheltered outdoor small cafe at the park but quite a nice place to chill out with family. Apparently there are people holding in-line skating classes and flying kites there too. The food there is inexpensive and tastes rather good according to my friends. They had tried the mee rebus, chicken feet noodles and nasi lemak. I wasn’t hungry at all and so I had only ordered some finger foods and waffle with ice cream to share with Darian. Didn’t manage to take any pictures of their food as I was late. Next time then. I think Papa Yap and I will be bringing Darian back there to recce the place and for some outdoor activities soon. 🙂
Seriously that scoop of ice cream should be bigger! haha
