In-Car Entertainment System

Clare entertaining herself during our recent roadtrip to Malacca. She was feeding the doll, tucking it into bed and talking to it during the roadtrip. Very cute 🙂

Who says that Singaporeans aren’t Innovative?

I stumbled upon this on Mr Brown’s blog recently, and thought of the time that Joan and I were considering shelling out about $600 to get Clare a little trailer attachment so that she could accompany us on our bike rides. http://www.mrbrown.com/blog/2008/07/most-innovative.html After seeing this, I think Clare would MUCH prefer the supermarket trolley method […]
