Pippy Pizza Anyone?

We’ve had a long day visiting Melaka but now it’s evening and we’re back to the Rasa Sentosa.

Everyone is starving hungry so the kids are even willing to fight their tiredness for the treat of a mega quick dip in the pool before dinner.  We hadn’t realised it before but the Silver Shell restaurant also has a Children’s Menu.

Kiwi Daughter spies that there is Pizza available so is instantly happy and for Little Mr. we ask one of the chefs if it’s possible to get some plain boiled spaghetti with a little cheese on top and a few chicken nuggets on the side.

The chef was most happy to oblige and soon both kids were  tucking into their favourite dinners. (Little Mr. especially thought he’d won the lottery because  I severely disapprove of commercially prepared chicken nuggets at home, preferring to make my own so that I know what’s in them).

He was so hungry that he didn’t really want to wait for his food to have it’s photograph taken, covering it with his hands… so I did the old “Oooooh look over there!” trick and he fell for it and I got the one and only shot I needed.  Ah ha… a full ten second delay before he was happily eating.

Kiwi Daughter had a giggle when her pizza arrived, it’s the same mega thin crust that we love from Trapizza a little way down the beach (the Rasa own Trapizza too) but she thought it looked like it has “Pippy Langkous” (a.k.a. “Pippy Longstocking”) pigtails sticking out on each side.

This discovery caused the kind of hysterical giggles that kids ( and probably especially overtired ones) are famous for, you know the sort, way too much laughter in proportion to the joke… but never mind, we were dining late and were sat in the corner so I don’t think we offended other diners.

Dinner this evening ended up being more of a business than leisure affair as we raced to get Little Mr. fed before he fell asleep in his food. The inevitable happened just after Himself bought our desserts from the buffet to the table… Little Mr was awake but wanted a cuddle in my lap when Himself left the table and had nodded off before he came back so he slept in my arms during dessert and Himself carried him back to the room after dinner. A happy end to an excellent day…
