Last weekend, my mil spontaneously sprung a surprise on us. She texted us to ask if we wanted to stay at RWS that night and said the room was available till Monday night! Kwee’s aunt had offered up the room cause her own kids and grandkids were not free. Just a week ago I had mentioned to Kwee how nice it wld be to stay at RWS and bring Ethan to Port of Lost World plus other fun Sentosa spots and within a week, this happened without us saying/doing anything!
God is too sweet.
Kwee had no more leave so I applied for half day myself and then picked E, my sis and my dad up to go enjoy the room. My dad had an epic nap and TWG tea while J, E and I had mega fun at POLW.
We almost cldnt enter it cause it was closed off for awhile due to lightning warning so we went to a nearby free wading water play area first where E entertained himself with leaves and sticks, & came to us for coconut icecream as play fuel.
Actually i think he wld been contented just playing there but POLW reopened so we quickly trudged over.
Crockfords Tower is a by-invitation only hotel so its not bookable and we were stoked plus blessed to enjoy the facilities. The decor aint my style but the luxe bathroom and spaciousness of the place plus awesome 24-hr butler service was top notch!
Bathroom came with a standing shower cum steam room, two sinks & a lovely tub that faced a “magic tv” (which is a mirror when not in use).
After washing up, we headed out to Palio nearby for dinner and I was glad for fam time.
All was well till E suddenly lost his temper at dunno what & he flung his book which caused a plate to break. Oh man. I immediately scolded him and hit his hand and told him to apologise which he didnt want to. So I brought him out of the restaurant to engage him one on one and made him look me in the eye and say sorry. When he finally did, I told him what he did was wrong and not to do it again, then kissed him & brought him back to rejoin the table. I guess I hv to brace myself for more of such moments #toughlove
After my folks went home, E and I chilled out a bit before I turned on the bedtime channel aka CNA which put him straight to zzz in >10 min haha.
Had some time to chillax until the hubbs arrived. He was sad that he cldnt be part of the fun but at least he enjoyed the bed and 1 cup of nespresso in the 10 hours he was with us.
The next morning, E and I had room service brekkie where he ate like a prince as I served him, followed by some newspaper reading.
Of course we cldnt leave till we checked out the Festive Hotel pool and we spent half our morning there splashing around.
The hotel was very nice to let us check out at 2pm so E enjoyed a long cosy nap and that pretty much concluded our mother-son retreat. So grateful for this surprise opportunity to make memories with Ethan and feeling absolutely blissed. Thank you God and thank you, Kwee’s relatives!
