When I was a kid the most fun I had was with my cousins, aunties and uncles. Wish I could relive just that part of my childhood. It was so sweet and joyous. We played cards like seven diamonds, ‘crocodile … Continue reading
My brain has been wired by trauma to always think of the worse possible outcome, so that I can be prepared. I’m constantly in fight or flight mode. It’s a terrible state to be in and I wish I wasn’t … Continue reading
I went to two malls and at both places saw Dinosaur exhibits. First at One KM which has an adventure component which looked kinda scary to me – walking a rope with a safety harness far off the ground. And … Continue reading
Saw these Easter treats at Marks & Spenser, Raffles City.
I think the airport is going to be extra crowded with kids just going there to play. There’s a humongous bouncy castle plus disney characters like Mickey and Minnie. Saw this at Terminal 2.
The River Safari is a mixture of an aquarium and a zoo. I enjoyed the it more than I thought I would. I’m not usually an outdoorsy type of person. My favourite exhibits would be the pandas, red pandas (more … Continue reading
I love Children’s Books that are well made. Gonna start writing about my favourite ones.
But back then the back of the couch was fine. There sure are some amazing playhouses in Singapore but they do come with a hefty price tag. Playtents are cheaper (Ikea) but I was attracted to this sturdier pretty one … Continue reading
Ironically after writing a post about the hazards of being connected (due to the ease and portability of devices), I also wrote about my favourite free ipad apps for toddlers. Yes there are advantages we can’t ignore and we have … Continue reading
These days I’m interested in shopping – if it’s for baby or kiddie stuff. Recently I found that City Square is one such place.
I need an off switch for my mind. Here I am, awake at 4am and unable to go back to sleep due to worry. What better to do than to compose a blog post. Haven’t been updating the blog lately … Continue reading
The children in Hanoi were enchanting, posing for their parents during the Tet festival. The Vietnamese people seem to be very family oriented and I noticed they were very gentle and loving with their kids. Here were children tucking into … Continue reading
Wrote about it at Guillaume’s parenting blog, White as Milk. Included details about fun things like lion dances, although my favourite since age 3 has been the dragon dance. There are scheduled events, but the most fun is coming across impromptu … Continue reading
Wrote about it at White as Milk. Also shared what disgusting meal I used to love as a kid. You’ll be pretty grossed out. Would love to hear what odd food you favoured as a child that you find disgusting … Continue reading
I love the way Liang Court does things and they confirm again and again why they remain my favourite place to hang out. I’m in love with everything Japanese so I may be a tad biased. Every time I come … Continue reading
Another fun interview I did, answering Sofia’s 11 Questions. You can head on over here to check it out.
These days the activities of children seem to be so commercialized. Wrote about my 70’s childhood and it made me think about simpler days when we made up our games and those lovely sand pits at the playground. Very hard … Continue reading
I feel very strongly about good values. Seems to be lacking sometimes in this material world. Or replaced by lousy ones (good to be aggressive?) in the chase for more power or money which I don’t think is very good … Continue reading
I only recently discovered that the new Botanic Gardens entrance is much nearer to Cluny Court than the Botanic Gardens Visitor’s Centre Cafe and the Cafes here are much nicer too. I would come again to Gastronomia Da Paolo and … Continue reading
Took this some time ago and forgot about it. Decided it was time for a short post to appreciate the art at our MRT Stations.
Bras Basah Complex has been around for ages, since I was a kid in the 80’s. It’s the place you go to for books and art supplies. I hadn’t visited this place for a few years and this time, everywhere … Continue reading
