Dancing on hilltops

After a divine brunch of truffle oil scrambled eggs on Saturday, we stumbled upon a hidden gem tucked away in a little nook near Bukit Timah Saddle Club. We did the only thing we could when one makes an unexpected discovery, which was to spend the rest of the morning dancing on hilltops, flapping imaginary wings and rolling down hills.

It was literally an off-the-beaten-path adventure – the very best kind.

For once, the weather was cool (explains the long sleeves) and the grassy slopes made it feel like a scene right out from The Sound of Music. Except without the Sound or the Music. Or Julie Andrews. Which basically makes it a pirated version with terrible sound. But with much cuter kids.

I’ll just let the pictures do the talking.

There were these huge leaves lying on the ground just asking to be picked up and turned into wings. They were happy to oblige, as always.

Ok, that’s the lot. Have a good one this week!

    Nice, from the pictures, looked like they were having loads of fun somewhere nice and cool, not in Singapore.

      Ya the weather was surprisingly cool but not rainy. If not the kids will start to get very irritated after 3 minutes

    What kind of leaves are those? They look as big as the kids! And I’m loving Truett’s shirt.

      I have absolutely no idea what they’re called, but they’re HUGE!! The shirt will look great on your boy – incidentally, my friend got it from Target Australia. U can probably check it out

    So picture perfect. Can share where is this? Is it near Rider’s cafe?

    • Reply Daphne July 19, 2011 at 6:04 pm

      Yes! It’s directly opposite riders cafe, right up the slope where there’s a tree with no leaves (I’m not very good with plant names).

    Kirsten is looking so adorable here. Like those garden elves running around with huge leaves that doubles up as umbrella.

      Perfectly apt description! They totally look like garden elves hahaha

    it just proves kids do not need big fancy slide or gadgets to keep them excited :)

    • Reply Daphne July 21, 2011 at 10:05 am

      Andy – i totally agree! Just wide open spaces where the kids can run wild and they’re pretty happy.

    In UK, the parents love to let the children roll from the top of the slope.
