A nice sunny day for a break!
Sometime last week, we decided to take off from work and head out for a bit. :)

So we headed off to Ikea for lunch and also to pick up some stuff for the home there. Its great going to Ikea on a weekday coz it can be quite a nightmare on weekends with the crowds, especially in the Ikea cafe.

Lunch! Yummy! :)
After lunch I though it'll be a pity if we didn't head outdoors since the weather was looking great. So we headed for the beach, to polish up on my cycling skills. Hehehe, I may have forgotten to mention that I had just picked up cycling a few weekends ago. Before that I had never thought that one day I'd be able to balance, much less get anywhere on 2 wheels! But a few lessons and some wobbles later, i managed to get a hang of it! :D
So anyway, we rented our bicycles and cycled along the beach. Its was quite fun and also nice that there were not many people there either! :P
Spotted these large sand castles at the beach...

Hmmm, maybe I should consider staying in to work on the weekends and go out on the weekdays! Ha! That'll mean a 2 day work week?? Well, once in a while, we all can dream and build our imaginary castles too can't we? :P

A Visitor

Lately, we've got an oriole who keeps visiting.
Its pecks on the window, flaps around outside and then sits on the window and looks in.
Hehehhe, how cute.
Its quite hard to get a pic of it flapping around coz it moves way too fast for me to grab my cam, but here's one of it sitting on my window. :)
I like its chirping, its got a very nice call. :)

Bye bye Bao bao

Bao bao is my dream cat.
Bao bao is one cute, fat cat that has a great following on Flickr and many other pet related forums here.
Bao bao has an equally cute friend called Bei bei and also has a wonderful 'daddy' who takes fabulous pictures of him.
Bao bao sadly left for the rainbow bridge on the 1st of October. [I only found out about it today :(]
It always tears me up to read about people losing their furry friends, cos I know how terrible it feels. :_( I couldn't bring myself to read more about it at the office today (can't walk around all teary eyed), so I left that for when I got back home.
Sigh, its so sad losing a furry friend, no matter how big or small they may be and my heart goes out to his loving family. :(
