The Mummy Who Dreamed ...

It's the week of celebration at Esplanade specially for children being Children's Day on 1st of October.

I made plans to spend the whole day with Kimi there, hoping to soak up some arty airs. Besides 1 paid performance, "The Leaf Who Dreamed" plus other stories with Tick, Tack and Tock". There were free performances and story telling throughout the day! Isn't that great?

For my standards, I felt that Kimi did wonderfully, sitting and listening earnestly the first 20 mins - in fact even better than some other older kids there. Actually, kids under 2 are not allowed in but, if you purchase tickets then it's ok (???).

Well, this 'trial' has given me confidence to bring Kimi for more productions, etc. So, I've been looking out for more suitable performances.

Due to Kimi's nap time between 12.30 to 3pm, we could only cover the story telling from 3pm onwards. I would have loved to have him sit through the Kid's Chinese Instrument performance. Pity, it was at 2.15pm. Well, next time!

Aunty Pat joined us after his nap and we had dinner at the Bay. It was really a very tiring day (for me) but it was one of the best fun filled days for us both! I wished everyday was such fun and bliss!

Kimi with the cast - see how difficult to get him to smile at the camera these days?
But, Kimi was definitely fasinated by the Dragon. It's a sneak prelude to the show in Jan 09. And, yes! We have decided to go too cos it's all about animals and Kimi is crazy about them!
Kimi stole the Tiger Balloon ....
The 2 cuties after the show. Kimi was so fascinated by the puppets hanging above!
Finally, a frontal shot and smiling too! Some days I DO get a little lucky!
Wow! This is really my special day! Kimi was so keen to pat the dog.. just like how he pats (slaps) Enzo.
The cast of the story-telling performance - "The Lion And The Mouse"
Kimi is so captivated with the story-telling

Up for some run time at the roof top. I love this pix! My 3rd pix of the day with a smiling Kimi. And look at the lovely blooms!
Another flower to add to Kimi's knowledge list - Frangipanni. Any idea why Kimi looked so serious? He heard some band sounds and was immediately captured! After this he ran towards the sounds, dancing, shaking and clapping! Haha! The free waterfront band performance was doing a rehearsal.
