Botanical Gardens - 22 July 2007

We decided to visit the Botanical Gardens.

So you geared yourself up with your digital camera that had been in storage for quite some time.

Here are the pictures.

15 July 2007, Sunday

Went to the zoo after church. It had been a few months since we last stepped into the zoo.

You decided that you wanted to go see the cow at the children's zoo. So off we went to the children's zoo. You enjoyed talking about the miniature horses, the goats, pigs, potbelly pigs and the cows.

Then we moved on the children playground. Off you went to enjoy the slides and all. There were the swings too. You had a go at it and I realised that you are kind of deprived of such fun. You do not know how to swing. Haiz... never mind, there was Daddy to give you a push and also to teach you the know-hows of swinging.

Next stop was the Fragile Forest. Once entered, we were admiring the butterflies when two ringed-tailed lemurs ran up to the butterflies stand and licked up all the sweet syrup there. was kind of fun to see the two lemurs so close up. You, of course, were a little scared of them but yet we managed to snap a few pictures.

Out of the Fragile Forest, we came up to the Archer Fish enclosure. In it there was the horse shoe crab. So I said, "Ashlyn, there is a horse shoe crab in the enclosure too."
"Where are the shoes?" you asked.

Huh??? With that response, two young couples beside us were tickled. We had a good laugh at your innocence.

11 July 2007, Wednesday - Sick

At about 10 pm yesterday, Ash suddenly had fever. It rose to over 39 degree celsius. So Daddy and I had to take turns to feed Ash the fever medicine.

It hurts to hear Ash cry in the middle of the night for us. Luckily, Mah Mah was around to help.

Today, it was Primary 1 registration day for Ash. So Daddy and I had to leave the house earlier than usual. Leaving Ash behind with Mah Mah to take care along with Aver. Giving reminders not to go near to Aver in case she caught the virus too.

By 4pm, Ash called Daddy and announced that her fever had went back up and it was at 40 to 41 degree celsius. That got us worried. Upon reaching home, Ash was rushed to have a shower to cool her body. Then it was continuous sponging. The fever did went down.

By 8.30pm the fever starts to rise again. So Daddy decided to bring Ash to the paediatrician.
Diagnosis given was that it could be a viral fever since there was no other symptoms. So we had to monitor for another 48 hours. For the time being, we had to bring the fever down.

10 July 2007, Tuesday

Yesterday, I went to the dentist because my front tooth was shaking. My gum was infected. The dentist asked me if I wanted to take the front tooth out. I said,"Yes." It was painful when the dentist wanted to shake the front tooth. I cried but the dentist said I was brave. I kept the tooth under my pillow and a fairy gave me a real one dollar coin.
