We spent a long holiday in Sri Lanka. If you’ve noticed I didn’t update the blog with our travel stories after this post about My Little Giant indoor playpark. We visited Sri Lanka for holidays at the end of October and spent there till the mid of December. It was a great holiday for my kid to spend his time with the grandparents and other relatives.
Other than his time with grandparents, we also visited some attractions in Sri Lanka which are specially good for kids. Sanu, our kid saw the elephants in Pinnawala Elephant orphanage. This is his first time to see the elephants in real as we miss the opportunity in our first Singapore zoo visit.
Next to the Pinnawala Elephant orphanage, there is also a zoo which is newly built.(Or still under construction).Although there are no many animals to see, this zoo is good enough for a little kid to spend the day.
Other than such attractions, Sanu spent his time playing with his cousin sister Imalsha and it was the happiest time for him.
Night time experiences such as watching fireflies, bats and hearing the sounds of howling dogs are new experiences for him which we don’t experience in Singapore. He also experienced his time running around the home gardens.
Sanu also had his first haircut in a Barber Salon Sri Lanka.Until that,I used to cut his hair.It was not an enjoyable moment for him.Anyway,below is a photo of him after the hair cut.We visited to meet some friends with his new hair cut 🙂
Anyway, we are back to Singapore and I am still trying to come to my daily routine. I really miss my time which I spend reading other fellow blogs. With new school term, we are busy with sending Sanu to Preschool, but I am glad still I could find some time to write a blog post.
How about you? How did you spend last year school holidays? Please share your thoughts.
