After their naps, we decided to head to Vivo city for some shopping. Knowing how crowded it can get during the weekends, we opted to park at Harbor Front instead. From the car park, Ally saw the cable cars and decided she wanted to take a ride on them. I, was less enthusiastic, I am absolutely petrified of cable cars. Each time I think of cable cars, my mind automatically thinks of the 1983 disaster in which 7 people were killed when an oil rig got tangled in the wires of the cable car.
For the children’s sake, I decided to try and conquer my fear. We were a bit concern that Ally would be afraid once she was in the cable car. The first and only time we took her on the Singapore Flyer, she cried the entire time. As it turned out, she really enjoyed the whole ride! As for me? I was a nervous wreck and was so happy to be on solid ground once more.
Ally wanted to stand up to admire the scenery, in fact, she would have walked around the cable car if I let her. I didn’t realise that I was holding onto her the entire time until she said to me ” please don’t hold me Mama” I started off with Max on my lap, then he got restless and stood up on the seat to look at the view. When he started getting excited and banged on the windows, he nearly gave me a heart attack. By the time we got off, I was drenched with sweat, but at least the kids enjoyed themselves.
