Air Zone

Met with cousins at City Square Mall for last minute shopping before school reopens. K needed wet shoes, tops, bottoms for P5 school camp. Cousins went TWICE to the Air Zone. Plenty of nets, plenty of balls, plenty of fun! Advertisements

Playground on 17 Jun 18

Playgrounds are fun no matter how old you may be. Looking back on my blog, playgrounds featured so much in their lives! The both of them are indeed very lucky to have had such a good childhood. It was fun going through their old playground photos from 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017!

Road Safety Park

T likes the Road Safety Park so he always asks to go there when the adults can’t decide where to jog. Today K bought his skateboard instead of his scooter. He skated 4km, so that’s a good distance considering that he’s still trying to get used to skating!

14 April 2018

It was a good Saturday. K invited T to use his one hour screen time voucher. T washed dishes for everyone. K stuck 3D lenses on the binoculars so everything appeared red + blue. I made honey green tea with aloe vera for the boys as an after-lunch snack.

Happy 11th Birthday!

K turned ELEVEN over the weekend! He chose presents instead of money/vouchers this year. My present for him was a skateboard and skateboard shoes. KL’s present for him were new Nerf guns. Because the school declared Monday a holiday (rest day for teachers after carnival), we managed to squeeze in a staycation in Johor Bahru […]

Glam Habitat Phuket

We visited Phuket over the March school holidays. T had a nosebleed that lasted about 5 minutes when we boarded the flight, but he managed to nap an hour after the plane took off. He took an airsick pill and didn’t puke, so that was considered a good flight to me. We arrived on 3.14 – which, the […]

Science Centre on 4 Mar 18

We renewed our Science Centre membership today. I don’t know how the Centre does it, but they’ve been capping the annual family membership fee at $65 for so many years. Such a reasonable deal! We haven’t been here for a while. Virtual reality is now gone and replaced by a Boeing-sponsored flying exhibition.

Sentosa

Another weekend, another visit to Sentosa! Nobody wanted to exercise with me today, so I jogged on my own and finished before we reached Sentosa. I do not like to lie on sand at all, so while they were playing, I laid on the beach mat to read.

Christmas Presents!

We opened our presents late this year because K was away in the last week of December. He went on a cruise with his grandma and auntie and cousin. We were nice and waited for him to be back to open the presents together. The boys received so many gifts from family and friends again! […]

Kidzania Singapore

We arrived bright and early at Kidzania Singapore at 10.15am! That was the day before T turned 8. The queue was so short because the early birds already made their way in at 10am sharp. Yeah, we took less than 5 minutes to check in! Consistent with their character, K went to check his bank […]

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 […]

Holiday Art Camp

Boys attended a holiday art camp in September. It was organized by the CC downstairs. Although it was a really short camp (2 half days), they came back with lots of things – batik tees, lanterns, photo frames, fancy colour pencils etc. Both said the camp was fun!

Adventure Zone

Our second time staying at Golden Sands Resort in Batu Feringgi, and boys don’t remember their previous stay here. Then, they were too young to try the fast slides at Adventure Zone. Now that they’re so big, they had a really good time zooming down non stop! 15 minutes before they were at Adventure Zone, they […]

Made in Penang

Made in Penang is a newish 3D interactive museum. Again it’s one of the many attractions in Penang that is styled as a musuem, but it’s really not quite. Like Dark Mansion, there were plenty of good photo opportunities here. The place was cheerier and boys had more fun here than at Dark Mansion. Tickets were […]

Dark Mansion

Penang is home to a number of small eclectic attractions scattered around the UNESCO World Heritage Buffer Zone. They’ve all called themselves museums but they’re really not quite. We went to the 3D glow-in-the-dark museum that has zero educational value. Plenty of photo opp in the place. So photos were nice! It’s a fun 45 minutes […]

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 […]

ScienceWorks

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 […]

Melbourne ACMI

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 […]

Staycation at Capri

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 […]

Happy 10th Birthday!

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 […]
