Things Our Kids Did at Singapore Design Week

Singapore Design Week at National Design Centre

Singapore Design Week takes place in March and this year we brought our two girls to check out some of the programmes around National Design Centre at Middle Road. In their words, “This is fun!“. Well, it is hard for me to please them these days, they have grown to have their own concept of fun and I’m sometime put …

Activities for Family and Children at The Residence Bintan

The Residence Bintan is more than just a “hotel room”, it is a beautiful resort by the beach with huge space to run around, cycle or for the not so active ones, there is complimentary buggy service to bring you wherever you want around The Residence Bintan. While we were at The Residences Bintan, we spent a lot of time …

Keeping Our Children’s Sight In Check

We parents all know that it is almost impossible to not expose our children in this digital age from technology… the iPads, tablets, mobile phones and in school they learn on the computer too. All these devices emit blue light that can cause problems with our eyes when overexposed to the blue light over a period of time.  It is …

We’ve Bought KidZania Annual Passes and Here’s How We Intend To Milk It!

Kid at Work at KidZania Singapore 7-eleven Storekeeper

So finally after a year of waiting, KidZania Singapore now has annual passes for kids! We jumped right into this investment for our one-year of unlimited entries into KidZania Singapore without need of much persuasion on the Mummy’s mind. Because it’s really too good a deal for Mummy to resists, the thought of having less headaches cracking where to go …

Our 5 Year Old First Forest Adventure in Genting

In February, together with the little ones and my mum, we headed up to Genting for the first time after more than two decades. I have zero recollection of how the place looks like and did not have any expectation for the trip besides the awesome meals we were going to try at the newly renovated Sky Avenue at Resorts …

Learning to Write with Kids’ Favourite Songs

Ayra is in K2 this year, and she is still not very keen on reading nor writing. I am not sure if she’s only being lazy when around me or she is really just not interested. Based on feedback from her teachers, she is doing alright in class and even during her enrichment sessions at Eye Level. To help get …

My Little Photographers at KidZania Canon Imaging Academy

The Mummy loves photography and has been a supporter for Canon cameras for a long time now. The girls have been the subject of Mummy’s shooting obsession since the day they entered into her life. They have seen how the Mummy handled the camera and are rather familiar with how the camera works. When they were given a chance to …

Love Creative Play Time with Our Kids

Playtime is rare with Mummy around, because Mummy is always busy with work even when she’s at home in the evening. But when Mummy do sit and play with the girls, they immerse themselves 101% and do all kind of silly things together. Now that Ayra is 5 and Zara is 3, both of them love creating their own stories …

Our Learning Experience with Eye Level Singapore at City Square Mall

Ayra is almost 5 and she’s not very interested in learning to read. She’s a spatial and visual learner, she prefers to draw than to write her alphabets. She prefers to learn the strokes of Chinese characters rather than to recognise the sound of words. A few months ago, she was still writing alphabets and words (even her name at times) in …
