But sometimes he can be cheeky in his spelling too. Like what happen this morning...
Me: Nicholas, can you spell "duck" for me?
Nicholas (thinking and trying to sound the word): D...U....k
Me: nope. It's D U C K.
Immediately he replied with a cheeky smile : you mean "did you see K" ? O...hahaha...I can see it!

Read some much about this place from all the blogging mummies but never took the effort to bring the kids there. So today, finally gathered all my determination to drive the 2 boys there to check it out. Being a weekday, the place is very quite and we got almost the whole to place to ourselves. Nicholas laughed at the funny looking trees and came up with lots of his creative explanation why it looks that way.
It was bright and sunny one minute....
....and heavy downpour the next. We took shelter under the hut and was glad the rain stop pretty fast.
Back to explore more..took a picture the pack of mega bones! Nicholas said it look like the bones in the Elephant grave in his Lion King's book. Both had reservation going through it but after assurance, Ryan took the lead to walk though the "tunnel" and both started running in and out of the "tunnel"!
Walking up the slope to check out the pin-ball shooting. My dear Nicholas holding his little brother's hand, pulling him up the steep slope.
We lived so, so near and passed by it every day and yet never once did we ever take a serious look at the KTM railway track...The only time we took notice of it is when there's train passing on the bridge over the busy Bukit Timah Road.....
So with its closure, decided to bring the kids down for a walk and explored around. The girls, being girl, were less excited about it. To them, its just a walk, and a very bumpy one. But the boys enjoyed looking at the track and stuffs, especially Nicholas, picturing how it look when it was in operation.
The girls were briefed on the history of the railway and the reason for its closure while the boys busied themselves with the stones and doing balancing act on the tracks.
We found a way to get Ryan posed. All we need to do is to ask him to show us his 2 fingers and we got a "V" sign!
Our four beautiful kids....
The 2 girls wanted to take picture with him but little rascal pushed Charmaine away and only wanted to take with Rachel.
Big brother here had gone into his own "train" world...
I brought the boy there again a few days later...less people and the boys get to enjoy more.

Very simple ingredients and very easy to make. Took me less than 40mins including getting the durian flesh out and meshing it.
1/2 cup of castor sugar (I use slightly less than 1/2)
3/4 cup of self raising flour (sifted)
Durian flesh meshed with fork for easy spreading
Preheat oven @ 180 degree.
Step 1: beat eggs with electric beater till its pale and thick.
Step 3: add in the sifted flour and gently fold with well combined. Be gentle and so as to not burst the air bubbles.
Step 4: pour into a Swiss roll baking pan (lined with grease paper) and baked for 10 minutes or till golden. It should be springy when touch.
Step 5: remove from oven immediately once done and turn it onto a clean sheet of grease paper. Remove the top grease paper (the one that was lined on the tin). Spread the durian purée evenly and roll it up, like how one would roll a sushi roll.
I find it nicer to eat when it's chilled.
