My solution? Go OUT. Change of scene, get the body moving etc. We almost always end up at a mall. So was happy to stumble upon another option - spend time in a buffet restaurant!
Shabu Ten at 1U has a similar concept as I love Steamboat where plates of food travel around on a conveyor belt, except that the steamboat pot is communal here rather than individual. The food was fresh, pass. There were fried items and soft-serve ice-cream too. The kiddos were entertained by the conveyer belt and didn't run around. Hubby likes steamboat and didn't have a black face. Our maid actually said 'Thank you' for the meal (I didn't know how to respond haha).
JE doesn't eat much and it's not worth paying for her at buffets. Luckily there was a free-kid-meal promotion. I wanted to take a photo of her in the restaurant and she presented her bum...
Take photo of my BACKSIDE hehehee
SE still eats for free. This one is hard to deal with as she insists on everything done her way.
Me! Take photo of my Hello Kitty!
We spent close to 2 hours there grabbing plates off the belt, cooking, eating, repeat. Must do something like this again!
