Groceries has been a huge hurdle given that hauling bags of food home on the bus is not a great look, and is unsafe ... but we have established a pattern already. I can go to a big supermarket called GIANT, order over $200 worth of supplies (tinned food, toiletries, packaged goods etc) and get them delivered for free 48 hours later. I can also order fruit, veges, milk, bread, cheese etc from 'Kennys' and have them delivered the same day - which will work for weekly groceries. Anything in between is a hot 20-minute walk away to Cold Storage.... but not too bad really. Dairy is extremely dear here - milk $5.80 for 2 litres, icecream $6 for less than 2 litres, and meat is really dear (or dubious) as well. I am still only recognising about 20% of what is on the shelves, much less out and about at the Food Courts!

Wardies in Singapore
Adam is thriving. He and Celia love nothing more than to hang out at home and enjoy a swim. He is having his first taste of solids - Farex Baby Rice of course! The photo is of his walker that he got for Christmas... he's not too sure about it yet.
