And How Was Your Weekend?

A few things we did this weekend…

Statues not strapped by us. (They strap everything, especially the garbage bins, during a typhoon)

Noticed the statues were still strapped down after the last typhoon… (Sorry got more Kwah Chang ones I forgot to take – the ceramic statues had a kind of fishnet over them, not just the straps)…

The Rockstars debating whether Romney is hiding something in his undisclosed tax returns. Ms Rockstar's an Obama fan.

Refereed a “sibling disagreement” – over nothing in particular – the appropriateness of the “NGEH” response.

And…. Oh yes.

The pose must be Kings' fault. I wasn't near the cars til later.

Tesla (who makes electric cars) had a presentation/ test driving session in Cyberport (fine, it was an Asia Bankers Club event) yesterday, so guess what Rockstar wanted to do?

Very sunny and I didn't think to bring his sunnies. Come to think of it no one really came in typical "sports car driver" gear...

We had a wager whether the cars would look more like Lighting McQueen or Francesco Bernoulli.

Guess Lightning won...

Too bad we didn’t see a red car (not sure if someone was out with a red one)…

Dunno who the nice jie-jie was (Kings took the photo) but Rockstar seems quite happy "driving her around".

First thing Rockstar said looking at the pamphlets was, “Wah. So expensive.”

“How do you know?”

“This number is the price, right?” (Price tag he was pointing at was HKD 1,070,000).

"Hmmm. Is this in my price range?" Rockstar in the Le Meridien Ocean room before

So we told him you want to afford the big, expensive toys then study hard and come out get a good job (oops typical parent-talk alert)

The predictable conclusion to the day

And then after church on Sunday…

Don't be fooled, he made that face for the camera ok...

Rockstar ran into the corner of a bannister in the car park… And the Shangri La hotel people got us an ice pack and plasters FOC (well we ate lunch there)…

See this is the real facial expression, not the one above

Rockstar insists he’s fine… So long as we don’t take the iPad away… But we’re keeping an eye on him anyway because that’s the worst bump he’s ever had, by a long shot…

And then he and Kings found a guy making paper cuttings in Hong Kong Park...

And… the guy added… the plaster detail!

See the white cutout "plaster" in the pic?

And so that was our weekend….. And it’s back to school week with a staggered start next couple days…

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    Ouch, the “mountain” Rockstar’s head looks very painful. I can only echo the sentiments here – that Rockstar is a very brave boy – not making any fuss over the cut on his forehead. The impact must have been great to have caused that.big bump.

      Kings said there was a loud sound when he hit… I was a good 50 or more feet away in the noisy car park and didn’t hear it, when I saw him on the floor I figured he’d tripped… Will tell Rockstar ppl say he is brave, thanks!

    Quick receovery for Rockstar, that cut quite deep. But I only see smiling photos, one brave boy there :)

      Thanks Andy… Coming from someone with 3 boys who does big NS events that’s quite a compliment :D

    Owww, that looks like a big bad bruise/ cut. Hope it looks worse than it really is and that he heals quickly.

    It’s obvious from the photo of Rockstar and the green car that he’s perfected the art of posing next to flashy cars ready to utter “S’up!” with a knowing nod when a pretty girl walks past ;-)

      Thanks dear, not much reaction from him except he refuses to go swimming now cos he doesn’t want to get the bandage wet…

      Re the pose… It’s cute I guess when a small child does it, would be sometimes (only) cute when an older child does it unless there was irony in it (otherwise I’m kinda It’s Bad Enough If The Kid Bought That With His Own Money Somehow, It’s Worse If He Has That Attitude With Someone Else’s Money)…. And if a grownup does it I would find it creepy. Don’t care how hot the guy or car is :D
