What Do Kids Like? Through the Generations

Anxiety: Why Am I Wired This Way?
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

Disney Christmas at Changi Airport
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.

Wish I Had a Playhouse when I was Little…
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

My Favourite Free iPad Apps for Toddlers
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

Children in Hanoi During Tet
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

What’s there for Kids at the New Chinatown Point?
