Family Journal: A Week Well Spent

Last week was one of the most well spent week I've ever had. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably have a rough idea why I said so but if you don't I tell you why.


I accompanied G on his school field trip to the zoo. He had so much fun with his classmates and he tremendously enjoyed my 100% attention as daddy and big sister are not with us.


I had Fri-date with my first born at one of her favourite Japanese restaurant, Ginza Bairin. It was her last day in school and since they were dismissed early, I asked her to follow me at my workplace so that we can have a dinner date after I knock off. She is turning 13 this coming August and I wish to spend more one-on-one dates with her as often as I could. I know I have mentioned that many times here on the blog but I am still struggling to accept the fact that I am going to be a parent of a teenager soon.


As usual, G and I made pancakes for breakfast and blew candles, went to the park and played the whole morning while K catch up on some lost sleep during school days. Before I left to meet my friends, I bathe G and tried my very best not to let him see me leave the house. I had so much fun catching up with my college friends the whole afternoon whilst the hubby took the kids at Singapore Expo to shop for books and stationary.

I left my friends' place around 6:30pm and squeezed in a Satur-date with the hubby at Z'en Japanese Restaurant at UE Square. I had a very satisfying 12-course meal at the same restaurant before with my ex-colleague so when hubby asked me to choose which voucher to avail from his mobile phone points, I chose the 1-for-1 ala-carte meal at Z'en.


We attended the mass and had dinner at Wing Zone. I forgot my phone at home so I had no photo taken on Sunday. The rest of the photos in this post are taken with my ever reliable iPhone 6+.

How I wish every week I get to go on a one-on-one date with the kids and the hubby and still manage to meet my friends. It only happens once in a blue moon so I just had to document it for posterity and to let the ONE above know I am truly grateful for the past week well-spent.

Thought to ponder: Try to make at least one person happy every day. If you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought. Count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a lifetime! Lawrence G. Lovasik


  1. awww.. your day sounds nice and I think it's good you eat out with your daughter, one-on-one style..

  2. You really had a busy week. Al the food look delicious and I'm dying to try the restaurants.

  3. Very mouth watering food makes me starve :) I love going on a date with my spouse too its healthy for a couple to have a private moments with or without a kids to keep the relationship stronger,

  4. Those were days very well spent with your loved ones. Nothing beats having those days. I'm sure you wouldn't want to miss days like these.

  5. It's a bummer when you forget the camera and you can't capture the moment doesn't it? Looks like a fun weekend.

  6. I guess the time management is very well handle between family and things.

  7. Days spend just for kids is indeed fruitful specially in the long run. Kucky naman ni G.

  8. Looks like the best days to spend time with the family. The best time ever when we spend our time to our family.

  9. It was a week well spent indeed! Spending precious moments with your husband, kids and friends separately in a week is next to impossible, but you made it happen. Nice!
