We visited Punggol Jetty for the first time together and Ayra was pumped when she saw the playground. When we put her down near the playground, she paused her steps just before the unfamiliar ground, sand. She hesitated and simply stood there and waited for us to carry her into the playground.
After much persuasion, Ayra still refused to step onto the sandy ground on her own. We decided to give her a little hand. We held her hands and lifted her off the ground and landed her feet into it. She took a few tiny steps and her immediate reaction was to lift up one of her leg crying for help. Sand got into her sandals and she cried for us to help clean her feet.
She stood like this for quite sometime and we had to carry her off the sandy ground and helped clean her feet and sandals. We couldn’t help ourselves and laughed at her silliness and funny reaction. I thought sand is a fun thing for kids and Ayra will be happy to sink her feet in it. Guess she needed more chance to experience sand before she get used to the feeling.
We took her away from the sandy playground and checked out the other parts of Punggol End. It was breezy and quite a nice place to enjoy a windy evening. The only part we disliked was the smell coming from the industrial ships not far away in the waters.
Before we left the place, Ayra initiated another attempt to play at the playground. And this time, I captured some of the moments on video. Here’s the video to share. 🙂
