Brayven turned 9 this week! Last weekend’s gathering at Pasir Ris was partly to celebrate his birthday. So many big cousins and so many small cousins at the party! Grandparents were all stowed away at the mahjong room and only appeared at mealtimes when they were in between games. Good that everyone had their own […]
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 […]
Us after playing frisbee at Fort Canning Park. I have not laid on grass for a long time. Nice grass.

We visited ScienceWorks today. It’s a small place with just two main galleries. We got in free with our Singapore Science Centre pass because this is a partner centre. We spent the most of our time at “Think Ahead”, an area that imagined the future. Boys designed jet powered sneakers, flying cars, and even superpowered […]
Today was a Museum hopping day. After the Melbourne Museum, the boys (all three of them) asked to go back to the Australian Center for Moving Images (ACMI). We’ve been here on our first day when we had a few hours to spare, but the boys all felt that they could do more playing. The […]
Bangkok. Me and KL took a short trip to Bangkok this month because we always like to travel together on our birthday month. While we were there, we met with Lewis to celebrate his birthday! Spinner. Fidget spinners are all the rage now. Boys forked out $15.90 from their own savings (that’s a lot […]
Impromptu decision to go on a staycation since KL did not have to work over the Good Friday weekend. We stayed at Capri by Fraser, and boys liked the fact that we could see planes land at Changi every 3 minutes or so. This is actually our second time staying at Capri but because they […]
K turned TEN on Friday! KL got him some science toys and I made him some vouchers to be used in the next 365 days. K went to school as usual on Friday. Except that they counted him as a ten-year-old instead of nine-year-old for his Napfa test that afternoon. Dinner was at a Jap restaurant […]
Tear off stripes of masking tape. Stick one on your face and one on your brother’s face. At the count of three, grab your brother’s tape while protecting your own. First one to get eight stripes of tape wins. * Game was ridiculously funny! Awesome that their childhood is filled with ridiculous things like that!
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 […]
Cousins played blackjack on the last day of CNY. My brother was the banker. K earned $3 that evening. T didn’t join the game. He played Lego with a younger cousin instead. Coke light and eggs were assembled for a science experiment. T had to soak one raw egg and one hard boiled egg in […]
First time renting adult bikes at West Coast Park. The boys only joined us for 20 minutes of cycling before they ran off to play on their own.
Fort Pasir Panjang is located within Labrador Park. There are a couple of signs explaining the defence features of the fort, but because the tunnels and underground rooms are not accessible, it was quite a boring place to visit. We left after 10 minutes to play and jog in the park.
The Science Centre is our go-to place on weekends whenever we have a few hours to spare and nothing to do. We spent our New Year’s Eve afternoon there. We pop by the ecogarden trail sometimes because the treehouse is quite lovely – to the boys, not to me. I have NEVER stepped foot into […]
Last post to round up the year! Stuffed toys neat and snug under the blanket. When K sets the sleeping area (not so often), he makes an effort to line things up nicely. When T sets the sleeping area (most of the time), everything is randomly left on their tilams. Used many plasters this month […]
We stayed at Holiday Inn Resort Benoa for five days and boys loved it as usual. They have the same program every day: breakfast, Kid’s Club, lunch, Kid’s Club, swim, dinner, Kid’s Club (sometimes night swim). They play with the same things at the Kid’s Club and eat the same meals every day but they’re not […]
I just learnt that there are two mango trees downstairs. Their friends’ father spent more than an hour getting two mangoes – first with a football, then string/stone, then with a basketball. T made a bouquet of stems from the fallen leaves of the tree.
Boys have been getting home-cooked dinners 4-5 nights a week, now that my mum is frequently staying over in our place. T has no front teeth now! One of them has been wobbly for a while and he plucked it out by himself. K is still making a lot of things at home. He made a […]
Cycling and sand play at East Coast Park again!
The Science Centre is running a (not so) creepy Halloween event this long weekend. Five stations to walk through, and we were fed nuggets of information along the way on electricity, plants, human bodies. The paper plates that we took home were cute!
The slope downstairs is actually very gentle, but somehow they manage to make the climb up look so arduous!
We’ve not gone on a staycation in the last 2 years. Decided to stay over in Sentosa last week when the boys had a break from school. Our second time staying in this hotel and boys especially liked the meals at the hotel (the children’s buffet corner won them over) and the xbox room. We […]
Mid week dinner with family @ Junction 8. Because it’s PSLE marking week!
Our first visit to Labrador Park. Boys had their bikes and they were supposed to cycle but they were so distracted by the playground that they spent all their time there. Looks like we’ve gotta make another trip here again!
First day that T is riding a two-wheeler! Earlier in the evening, he was playing with a 5-year-old neighbor and a 6-year-old neighbor. They asked him why he was still riding a tricycle. They also got him to try their two-wheeler and *surprise* he could ride it ably! I came up to remove his tricycle […]
Water play at Science Centre on a really hot Sunday afternoon.
We brought the boys and their bikes to the Road Safety Park yesterday. They had a lot of fun chasing each other around the park and swinging on the roots of a Banyan Tree. We’ll definitely be back again!
We visited Sembawang Park a few weeks back. When I was growing up, I used to come here for BBQs with classmates and friends. So it was nostalgic to jog through the same path that I walked two decades ago. I also realized that the park is actually very small, but it certainly didn’t feel that way […]
T turned 7 this weekend! Birthday boy had the privilege of choosing our meals the whole weekend, so we ended up having an unbelievable amount of pasta over 48 hours …. Birthday boy requested to stay home so he can play his new Lego set. It’s quite a cool set. He’s happy with all the […]
