cute magnet and mini cards bought from the gift shop... 






~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~




entirely made from wood... it is labelled as a Green building which focuses on minimizing pollution and harm to the natural environment by using recycled materials and being water and energy efficient....

a few stations away and we reached Tamsui Old Street

苦肉计 that worked... =D 










a happy shopping day for me in one of the shops

childhood memories... still remember the time where the 3 of us would have a competition to see who could empty our piggy the fastest with a long ruler.... =D

oldies bubble gums and sweets for Alvin 


and while i was busy shopping.... the ang brothers went to try out the pasar malam game stalls and won this... i got to keep it.... =D 



spotted Uniqlo across the street on our way back to the station and decided to check it out.... it was having a sale and the angs went on a shopping spree



and these were hubby ang's 战利品



and mine.... 



our freebie for spending S$200+ @ Uniqlo.... 

well, 洪妈妈, 爸爸 and Dominic had their own set of freebies too.... 

together we would have gotten 3 sets of freebies.... do the math to know the size of our collective hole in our pockets.... wahahahaha
