Thankful Tuesday: Life's little pleasures

Here's what I am thankful for in the past one week.
From http://chinesemov.com/media/2012/LOVE-p1.html
# A great movie that had me laugh and cry together with the actors and actresses. It has been a while since The Husband and I caught a movie and even longer while that we watched a Chinese movie.

# A new read from one of my favourite author. In between expressing breastmilk sessions and before bedtimes, I have been reading it and had finished it in 3 days. A page turner always equates an enjoyable read!

# Thoughtful bus drivers who made sure that I have settled myself and the child in my arms safely onto the bus seats before moving off.

# A stroll in a hidden gem where there is an expanse of rustic scenery. It felt as if we were transported to another country. 

# A piece of heaven that came in the form of a tub of tiramisu. 

# Little milestones from little ones. Baby girl has rolled over (even though it is a fluke), is able to raise her neck when on her fours, and giggles at playtime. The little girl, on the other hand, now tries hard at speaking in full sentences, is getting better at keeping her toys after play, and is having a blast at her kindermusik classes.

# Cookies that came out nicely from the oven. Baking failures always result in wastage that I hate to see. 

Little pleasures, as insignificant as it may seem to others, always makes one's life sweeter. Writing this week's grateful post is certainly a breeze. :)

What are you grateful for this week?

What a coincidence, I heard over the radio earlier about this movie. I'll go check this one out. It's been ages since I've watched a Chinese movie at the cinema! The park you visited looks like a great place to bring the little ones. Which one is this? :)

June: Hello there! Thanks for dropping by & leaving a note! :)

Ruth: oh yes, do catch it if you haven't. The park that we visited is another part of botanical garden. It's called the Eco pond - nearest carpark lot entrance is from cluny road. I thought this part is nicer!
