This mum is guilty, guilty of not having time to let my girls get dirty and creative like we used to. I can’t remember when was the last time I brought out the box of paints, brushes and drawing block. It’s been too long. Now we stick to colouring pencils and crayons, because less mess lah!
But I want to inspire my girls to get creative with their expression on paper, in art.
So we’re heading out in June to catch four talented artists from Korea do their craft, LIVE on stage and with music! To be honest, I’m a little skeptical how my girls will react to the whole experience after catching this preview video on YouTube. It sure looks like a very creative and inspiring experience, I’m just worried about the darkness. But we shall see how it goes.
The Painters: HERO
A mind-blowing innovative non-verbal art performance that couples 3D video art together with action-filled performances of dance and comedy, will be back in Singapore with absolutely brand new content this year.

We brought the girls and their grandparents to catch Ge Tai The Musical and we are summing up our experience at the musical with these 3 reasons why you should consider bringing your family along to catch it.
3 Reasons To Catch Ge Tai The Musical
A cultural experience (without the heat)
In the past years, I’ve wanted to bring my girls to experience our local Getai culture during the seventh month. But being the old school mum (for some invalid reasons), I never did step out in the night during the seventh month with my girls. So this Getai experience is a great opportunity to show them a different kind of music experience. I’ve to say their expression when the show started was priceless. – stunt
Old School Entertainment for our Seniors
This was our second experience at a live stage performance with my parents, and they enjoyed it! Entertained by the familiar tunes from their days and singing along. Of cos, with some beer to help chase away the shyness (like most Singaporeans) and kick in the groove.
Outrageous Costumes and OMG Moments
I shall let the photos do the talking here. You don’t get to see such costumes and omg moments often you know?
Ge Tai The Musical closes on 29 May 2016. Tickets available at Resorts World Sentosa.
Ayra is now kinda crazy about Dinosaurs and creatures. Since we started switching our Starhub channel to Cbeebies in the evenings, one of her favorite is watching Andy’s Dinosaur Adventures. Funny how this princess lady is now more interested in shows on Cbeebies which I personally prefer too cos its more edutainment as compared to the other kids channels on Starhub.
When opportunity came to check out a new exhibition at S.E.A. Aquarium where there’ll be Sea Monsters, we all got quite excited about it. Though I believe the girls would have much more space to explore and roam around if we visited on a weekday. So that day, we had them belted in our double stroller throughout the visit so we don’t have to start a missing child hunt. We love attractions that are stroller friendly and S.E.A. Aquarium is one of them! (Unlike the other time where we had a very bad experience at another aquarium nearby. coughs)
So… back to Sea Monsters: Past and Present.
Organized into three zones, the exhibition unfolds to reveal sea monsters of the past and present. You get to discover breathtaking exhibits of extinct marine creatures and learn which of them are still among us today. I was too occupied with running around looking at the exhibits and watching the games play with DJ that day, I didn’t get much photos taken! Here are some which I thought are quite interesting from the Living Fossils exhibits.
The Axolotls, these never become adults and stay juveniles their whole lives and they can regenerate damaged body parts too. Amazing little creatures and super cute too don’t you think? I got stuck staring at these for the longest time that day.
Meet the Nautilus, the sole survivor of this once very diverse group of animals called Ammonites. These animals roamed the oceans for 250 million years before going extinct with the dinosaurs when a meteorite struck the Earth. These Nautilus are relatives of squids and octopuses! Can you see their resemblance?
After touring this special exhibit, we proceeded into the main aquarium for a walk. It was quite a quick visit with a short break at the Open Ocean exhibit where Ayra did some colouring activity on her own.
The Sea Monsters: Past and Present programme will run from now until 30 September 2015. Find out more over at their official website.
To celebrate Loving Mum’s birthday, we brought the family to Resort World Sentosa. Since Ayra is too little for any adventure at Universal Studio, we just strolled around the public area, had dinner at Chilis and watched two crane dance.
The Crane Dance is an attraction at Resort World Sentosa Waterfront, where the two giant mechanic cranes dances gracefully every weekend at 9pm.
“Watch the magical love story between a pair of mechanical cranes and how their love for each other transforms them into real birds.
Combining groundbreaking audio and visual technologies, astounding light and water effects, be awed by the cranes’ graceful courtship ritual. The sheer size of the steel cranes moving deftly in the midst of water illusion and play of light is one not to be missed.”
Took awhile before Ayra’s attention was on these cranes. She was too busy looking around being her kaypoh self when we reached Waterfront. When her eyes spotted the beautiful lights and splashing water, she stayed still watching the dance.
More details of the Crane Dance available on RWS website.
