Upper Pierce Reservoir

My first time checking out Upper Pierce Reservoir! Gosh, there were so many monkeys there. I wouldn’t dare to jog there alone. Boys had a lot of fun at the reservoir. L was thrilled to race all of us (he won many times). K and T like playing with branches and they found many long […]

Optical illusions

The Singapore Science Centre recently revamped it’s exhibits. It was so fun that we went TWICE in September. The second time was with cousins and they enjoyed the visit very much too. When you enter the Centre now, you will encounter many exhibits that try to trick your perception. Quite near the entrance there’s also […]

Hello Penang!

Singapore and Malaysia are both having a really loooong weekend now. There’s Merdeka Day, Teacher’s Day, Hari Raya Haji, Sep School Hols, ASEAN games hol … perfect time to visit Penang to meet up with cousins whom I’ve not seen in a long while. Between me and my cousins, we have EIGHT boys from 2 […]

Pasir Ris Park

Extended family gathered for 2 nights at a chalet in Pasir Ris. Cousins had fun chasing each other around the huge chalet, hanging out together to play their mobile phones, and sweating it out at Pasir Ris Park. They especially loved this spinning thing at the Park and would not get off to play other […]

Happy 1st Birthday Issac!

Isaac turned 1 this week! Extended family gathered for a BBQ to celebrate his birthday. It was a noisy and sweaty celebration, and the cousins totally enjoyed themselves running around and accumulating sweat! Since it was also my birthday and Kok Loon’s birthday over the weekend, the extended family celebrated for us too. Pamela – […]

Mindstorms

We’ve finally saved enough to buy a Lego Mindstorms set! Since October, I’ve been sending the boys to school on foot a few days a week. It started out as a punishment for them because I caught them lying and this was one of their entitlements that I slashed. As the weeks passed, it turned out to […]

Gone too soon …

My cousin Jennie passed away last Saturday after a four year plus battle with breast cancer. She would have turned 41 this October. She made her own plans for her own passing. It was a simple cremation, no funeral, ashes shattered into the sea, lots of beautiful flowers. When I was growing up, she was someone […]

Zoo with Cousins

Big group outing to the Singapore Zoo yesterday. We covered a third of the zoo together, watched a show, had lunch, and the little ones went off to Rainforest Kidzworld for water play. I was going to bring the boys home at the 6 hour mark, but T was so disappointed that we did not see a […]

Jurong East Swimming Complex

Cousins met up at the pool today. I must say that I like the Jurong East Swimming Complex so much better than the one at Jurong West. It’s nearer to our home, plus there’s KFC and Pastamania right beside the children’s pool so it’s very convenient to grab a bite. The boys (including Lucian!) ate so many boxes […]

Cousin’s Day Out

Cousins met to check out Marine Cove today. Place was packed, as expected. Great that it rained heavily when we were about an hour into playing … because half of the crowded left after that. The bigger cousins all like sand so we spent an hour on the beach. Lucian didn’t really want any sand […]

Hello Isaac!

Hello Isaac, the newest addition to our extended family! Isaac turned one month old on 19 Jun 16. He’s nocturnal for now … Older cousins were making a din the entire afternoon but that didn’t wake him up at all. In fact Isaac slept through his whole first month celebration and only woke up at 7.30pm when […]
