Baymax! Guess every kids are familiar with him - a healthcare robot in Big Hero 6 movie.  He was made of Japanese rice which I mould into different parts of his body.  My boy never failed to amaze me with his keen eye for details.  He actually pointed out that Baymax's mouth was not so wide.  Indeed, after I compare my creation with this :-

His lunchbox has teriyaki chicken thigh, stir-fried celery/carrot and green grapes/apple.  Baymax gave up his life to save Hiro and Abigail.  And requested Hiro to state that he's satisfied with his care, which is the only way he will be able to leave the boy's side in order to deactivate himself.   A simple story about sacrificing.   I was actually touched by the ending.  Do you?

Sampan (bumboat) playground

Yesterday, we headed to Elias Mall in search of Sampan (bumboat) playground.  Another old school mosaic sand playground at Pasir Ris.  We love to go to playgrounds.  My boy could happily play sand at the playground all by himself even if there were no other children.  Therefore, I would try to visit new playground as a form of outing during his school holidays.  Moreover, it's free!  We had previously visited the Dragon playground at Toa Payoh, Watermelon playground at Tampines. Dinosaur playground in Fushan garden at Woodlands, and Train playground at Tiong Bahru.  This sampan playground was actually not in my list.  But I decided to drop by the vicinity to check out the neighbourhood since I have no plans for that day.  We knew it was around Elias Mall but got quite lost until we asked around for directions. The playground was situated next to the coffee shop. 
The playground was simple and probably lack of 'fun' factor.  Nevertheless, my 6 years old boy proclaimed he likes it despite complaining the slide was too short.
