Being here in Taiwan for a while can sometimes be boring when my Mom's at work, because Athan and I usually just stay at home, so it's always best to plan things to do for us to make the most out of our time here. :)
Yesterday, we arranged a play date for Athan and his friend Huck here at Taipei American School. Kids get really hyper when they're just stuck at home, so it's best that parents do these things to help exercise their children and of course for them to have fun as well. :)

We stopped by at Huck's place first so they could play a little. They both love cars so much, so it wasn't hard for them to bond. :)

On the way out of Huck's place, they have a Fire Station nearby. The fireman was nice enough to let the two boys ride on their firetrucks and ambulance. Imagine how happy they were when they heard that!:)

After the fire station ride, we headed to T.A.S. for some sand castle building!

It was really nice seeing Athan happy during play dates and finally, he conquered his fear of sand!:)

Today, was my turn to meet up with a friend, who is also my former batchmate in high school, Dennise! Both our parents are based here in Taiwan, so we usually come here every summer and try to catch up. I missed our Taiwan bonding!:)

We met up at Takashimaya Mall. It's quite near our house that's why Athan and I just walked. We were also 30 minutes late. Bad!! Fortunately, Dennise is really patient!:)

There wasn't much to do in Takashimaya, so after lunch we headed to Starbucks and talked endlessly about our lives!:))

Cute heart!
The sweet taste of the fruit cake and bitter caffe latte I had was really good! Will definitely try it again! BTW, isn't the cake cute?? I love how they make things quirky here!

We also went to an Eslite bookstore here in Tienmu, so that Athan can read a bit and we can check out some bookstore goodies!

Love the wall design of their children section. Athan and I read about two books here! :)

Got caught up with this area filled with cute notebooks!! Wanted the "KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON." :)

It was to see Dennise again and bonding with her. Athan and I surely used up our Thursday in a productive way!:) Hoping for more bonding and productive days!

Now, it's dinner time!!

Tomorrow is the weekend and I can't wait!!!
