Max does afternoon tea with Grandma!
Grandma left yesterday after spending 2 weeks in Singapore with mommy and Max. This was her second trip to Sing. The first was when she came the day after Max was born to help to take care of mommy. She made the second trip because mommy wasn't so confident on taking care of Max - even with the maid's help. Grandma stayed 2 weeks each time, and this time she spent more time in the kitchen, teaching the maid how to cook some of mommy's favorite food, like scallion pancakes, soybean milk, Taiwanese marinated meat...etc. Thursday afternoon, grandma had to go to Orchard to run some errands. Since it was nice and cool outside (it had just rained), mommy decided to take Max for a walk with Grandma, and if he behaves, we'll keep going.
Max was asleep in the car seat when we were walking, and still sleeping when we got to Paragon. That gave mommy some time to walk around and shop a little. And when he finally woke up, we walked into Lawry's for afternoon tea. Mommy asked for a table tucked away in the corner so we don't disturb other diners, the hostess gave us a whole separate room. There was an old man sitting by the corner, who quickly got the check and left. We're not sure if he left because of us, but it suits us just fine. Max woke up and cried a little, and mommy just breastfed him underneath the cover. It all went very smoothly. And when it was time to go, he had fallen asleep. The times that he was awake, he looked around curiously and probably wonder, "Where am I? What is this place?" He stared at the Xmas decorations on the wall, probably because they're in red. Mommy took this nice photo of Grandma having afternoon tea with Max with her cellphone. The lighting wasn't so great but at least we have something to prove that Max was a good little boy!
