After meeting up with my Hai Sing Shijie, Roanne in the morning with her lovely boy, we had lunch in Yiban before heading to Newham City Farm. It was a lovely visit to the farm. We liked the play area for he young children. There were a few lovely animals at the farm as well. However, unlike Mudchute, we were not allowed to feed the animals at Newham City Farm. So, I suppose the little ones, especially Ryan was disappointed.
Things got better when we went out of the farm into a nearby park. There was this fantastic playground and the children loved it! One of the many nice things about London is the space… like when we visit a farm/park, it can be crowded but it is no where as squeezy as it could be back home in Singapore Ryan and Gillian can run freely and I know they will not bump into anyone.
The highlight of the playground was this cool looking slight… things were awesome for everyone…until Gillian went down on her own(because E believed that she could!) and hurt herself. No kidding. She cut her lip and it was bleeding so much. Thankfully, it was a cut on the lip and she did not hurt her teeth. That would be disastrous!
We went for a Mac Donald’s treat. It was unfortunate that our injured Gillian fell asleep and could not enjoy the ice cream that Ryan was gobbling up. Still, it was a great day for everyone and thankfully, the weather held up. Looking forward to more adventures when the weather gets better in London! Woots!
