Jayden and Iggie

Who are Jayden and Iggie?

Jayden is, of course, Nyan’s BFF who moved to the other side of the island. The two goofballs still have regular sleepovers though.

And who is Iggie? Iggie is a stuffed iguana that is the mascot of Nyan’s class at school. Every weekend, a different student gets to take Iggie home, and is tasked with taking photos of Iggie doing all sorts of fun stuff. It was Nyan’s turn recently to take Iggie home. Check it out:

‘Tis the Season: Christmas 2018

There’s never a White Christmas in Singapore, of course, but we still manage to make the most of the festive season.

We got together with Jayden and his family, and another family, for a Christmas dinner and gift-exchange for the kiddos.

It ended up as a sleepover for our hero, of course.

We also enjoyed the various holiday decorations around town:

On Christmas Day itself, we went over to Kyle’s house for a lovely dinner with his family,  and other friends. The kids had a blast with various playtimes:

There was a newborn baby there, which Mommy had a blast with:

We opened presents on Christmas morning, of course. But we somehow managed to not take any pictures during the unwrapping! Oops. Here are some photos of the tree and various gifts, before and after opening:

And some videos of Nyan opening other presents: Grandma and Grandpa like to send over a big box full of presents for Nyan to open, one per day, every day in December. It becomes a fun morning tradition: bound out of bed and head to the tree to open that day’s pressie. Here are a few examples:

And finally, a couple of lousy-ish videos of Nyan’s class performing at the school holiday show. They did a song about “Santa’s getting fit for Christmas.” You can see Nyan near the front, off to the right.

Happy Birthday to Jayden!

Jayden turned eight in October, and Nyan got to celebrate with him. Rather than a big party at an indoor playground or theme park, Jayden invited Nyan over for a simple playdate and cake. Were they excited? They were.

They spent some time at the playground at Jayden’s condo complex, complete with high-flying swing action:

And yes, there was cake. And photos.

Of course there was general frivolity as well.

Happy birthday, Jayden!

More Sleepover Fun

Jayden may have moved to the other side of the island, but the sleepovers continued in October (albeit less often).

Most Nyan-and-Jayden sleepovers include some time watching a movie:

There’s always eating and goofing:

There’s drawing, oftentimes while (or instead of) eating:

And just general goofiness, including with Jayden’s brother Jonnie.

It’s amazing how much energy these rambunctious boys are always able to find!

Return to the Skatepark

We’ve been to the skatepark a few times, as you’ve seen. Is Nyan learning how to skate? You be the judge:

At least he’s being a good sport with Jonnie, his surrogate younger brother:

Oh well. He has fun, and he gets to hang with Jayden, and sometimes even get a hot chocolate from the Starbucks across the street.

Things Boys Do at Sleepovers

Even though Jayden has moved away, we’re still getting the boys together for regular sleepovers. Here’s a look at some of the recent shenanigans they got up to.

They eat, they read, they goof around:

What’s a sleepover without science? Here they are carefully measuring the finger of Jayden’s daddy.

Here are the two pals, chatting and catching up by the pool at the start of a sleepover:

And yes, sometimes there are movies to watch.

Finally, after all this fun… it’s time to cuddle up in bed.

September Moments, Part Two

Second in our two-part series about little moments and events that took place in September.

On Thursday afternoons, after school and before taekwondo, Nyan took part in an art class held at his friend Nadia’s apartment, just across the swimming pool from us. It was one instructor, seven girls and Nyan. He was a little worried at first, we think, what with being the old boy there, but he quickly got over that and had a blast.

Over the summer, we saw The Lion King (the movie) for the first time, as well as a short live-action version of it at Hong Kong Disneyland. When we heard that the musical version was coming here, we snapped up tickets. No pictures of the performance itself, but here’s our hero (and his peeps) before the show. He loved it, by the way.

We were sad to see Jayden and his family move away in August, but one small consolation prize was inheriting their electric piano. Daddy’s had fun playing it, and Nyan has fun pounding the keys. We’re hoping it’ll spark some interest in actually learning to play. But for now, we have this.
