AXA@POST: Insurance Solutions At Your Doorstep

Of the places that I’ve started to frequent since becoming a stay-at-home-mum, the one that I didn’t expect was the post office. But I guess that’s because the post office has become so much more than just a place where you buy stamps and send letters. Most of the time I’m at the post office to pick up the odd registered post article that I wasn’t home to collect and to send out parcels both of my own and also for my husband. Let’s just say that we’ve gotten into the habit of buying and selling ... read more

The Three Billy Goats Gruff: Tripp-Trapping Tip-Tapping Fun

If there’s one thing Mei loves more than princess stories, it is fairytales. Both my children do, actually. They have grown up with fairy tales as staples in our book collection, from simple touch & feel editions for the littlest ones to longer ladybird classics for children. We are still waiting for them to be old enough for the darker, original versions. The ladybird classics are Mei’s favourite and every day she would grab one (usually more than one, actually) of these books, shove it ... read more

Fairytales Come Alive With Tulipmania

Tulipmania is one of my favourite floral displays at Gardens by the Bay. Well, it’s back again for the third year and I couldn’t resist going down to check it out. Mei’s ears pricked up when she heard that the display this year would have a fairytale theme and so she willingly joined me while the boys chose to hang out playing with Lego on a Saturday afternoon a couple of weeks back. We were not disappointed. The flowers were absolutely stunning and the setup was definitely something that Mei ... read more

Going with Stacey to the Peranakan Museum {Giveaway}

When exploring places of interest, whether locally or overseas on holiday, I tend to gravitate towards museums. The husband prefers zoos and anything where animals are involved but me, not so much. Perhaps that’s why natural history museums always such hits for the whole family! Anyway, I disgress. As a parent, I’ve transferred that love for museums to my kids by bringing to kids to museums regularly, both in Singapore and whenever we travel to other countries. They actually suggest ... read more

Day In A Life: This Is My Thursday

Since Noey started Primary 1 this year, there have been quite a few changes in our routine, not in the least the fact that I now have to wake up at 6am! It’s been a while since I last wrote about our routine. Back then I only had one kindy-going child, whereas I now have one child attending primary school and one in kindy. How has my life changed? Well, I’m clearly more of a driver than ever! It’s Thursday today, and this is how it might go: 6AM: My alarm goes off. I reach over to stop ... read more

Singapore Heritage Playgrounds: Clock Playground at Bishan

One of my oldest and fondest memories is playing at the playground near my grandmother’s house. My grandmother used live in a terrace house off Mei Hwan Drive and when we were over for the day, my mum and aunts would walk us kids to the playground at the top of the road near the current Goldenhill Park condominium. Those were some of the happiest and most carefree times of my life. There were a couple of see-saws, swings, a big roundabout, and a tall slide. I think the swings were our ... read more
