Shape Run 2015 – 1.8km Family Fun Run for the Choos!

By |August 3rd, 2015|

[Sponsored Post] We’ve clocked in the first family run this year with Shape Run 2015! This year, we are pretty pleased that the Shape Run introduced a new category 1.8km Family Fun Run. So different from the previous years where I am the only one running with the kids and the husband is at the sidelines (read our 2014 Shape Run & 2013 Shape Run experiences). Guess who was the most hyped up person? The husband of cos! He’s into running these days and is always competing with me the distance he has clocked. He’s super happy that he doesn’t have to hang around and wait for the race to end. We arrived way before the flag off time this year because I didn’t want to disappoint the kids and let last year’s incident repeat (we missed the race). We had a bit of time to wander around and take pictures with mascots. I […]

3M™ Sun Control Window Film – Sun Protection for homes.

By |June 18th, 2015|

[Sponsored Post]

I’m gonna share about our home’s latest installations  – 3M Prestige Window Film, 3M Safety & Security Film & 3M Fasara Decorative Glass Film. I’m quite excited about them honestly! And, if you are concerned about the sun damaging your furniture in your home, sunlight warming up  your apartment/house, and you want to protect your loved ones from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (uv) rays and shattering glass using window films, then this post is for you. If you are a new home owner or going to get your new home soon and thinking about getting window films, this would be quite useful for you too!

The weather is so awfully hot lately, my skin burns whenever I’m outdoors and I swear I’m shades darker than I was a month ago. I am sure you feel the same too! Oh the perils of the sun! We all know […]

    Beauty and the Beast – The Original Broadway Musical Spectacular.

Beauty and the Beast – The Original Broadway Musical Spectacular.

By |April 16th, 2015|

If you haven’t already heard, Disney’s Beauty and the Beast Broadway musical arrived at our Singapore shores some weeks back. From the producers of The Lion King, the award-winning production has been much anticipated by many. I know many of my friends have already caught the musical and gave rave reviews. So, some nights back, the husband and me clocked in a fun date night catching the musical at MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands. It was a lovely night, I must confess. 

Beauty-and-the-beast-musical-date-night

I think many of us grew up with the classic Disney animated film and is familiar with the storyline – Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and […]

The Three Billy Goats Gruff by The Little Company (TLC).

By |April 12th, 2015|

We recently caught The Three Billy Goats Gruff by TLC and the family loves it! Jerry has been asking me to bring him back to the theatres ever since we watched Goldilocks and the Three Bears. He loved the latter so much, he asked to go back the very next day after we watched it.

The moment we stepped into Singapore Repertory Theatre, Jerry turned to ask if we are back to watch Goldilocks again. My bad. I have been so, so sick lately, I didn’t have the time nor energy to prep the kids on the musical that we are catching. I have been either in comatose state or heavily drugged and spent 4 days away from work. I was literally dragging myself out of the house that day because I would have hated it if the kids missed it because of me.

The story revolves […]

Easter Eggstravaganza at Universal Studios Singapore

By |April 2nd, 2015|

[Sponsored Post]

We brought the kids & my nephew to hunt for some easter eggs over the school holidays weekend. Easter is one of those holidays that I really look forward to every year because I really, really like chocolate eggs and they are only available during this time of the year! Now that Universal Studios is having Easter Eggstravaganza (nice pun), it is a perfect time to visit Resort World Sentosa and be eggcited over eggs! Sorry, couldn’t resist!

So what’s the eggciting easter about, you’ll ask? Loads of eggs to hunt down, loads of rabbit ears to pull at (I’m joking at the pulling part) and special shows to catch. Even the entrance of the USS has been brightened up with loads of flowers and colourful eggs. The eggs are aplenty, and hidden at almost every corner of the park! Quite a cheery sight!

Eggs, Eggs, […]

Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition, Singapore

By |February 17th, 2015|

Jerry & Jerome are both huge fans of Transformers. Not a day goes by in the household without them holding or playing Transformers. They play with it every single day. Heck. Make that several many times a day and they travel with it even, grabbing one or two of them each time we step out of the house.

So, when I heard about the Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition at Science Centre Singapore, it’s a no brainer that I have got to check it out.

In case you aren’t aware… The Transformers 30th Anniversary Exhibition celebrates 30 years of evolution of the world famous Transformers series and presents a snapshot of its history as well as scenes and robots of the Transformers movie. The exhibition is making its third and final stop in Asia […]

Goldilocks and the Three Bears (in Mandarin) by The Little Company.

By |February 12th, 2015|

{Giveaway at end of post}

I love exposing my kids to different experiences and one of the easiest way is to bring them to watch plays. They are immediately transported into settings that are out of their world, and they often get to learn a valuable lesson or two. I also use the scenes in plays to relate to my kids, and teach them life’s lessons through it.

Jerry has been through quite a number of plays already, and Jerome recently went for his first. The plays they have watched thus far have been english-speaking ones and I do want to bring them to Mandarin speaking ones in a bid to promote speaking the language. Both my kids are bilingual because the grandparents speak Mandarin, but I am a lot more comfortable in English and they do tend to veer towards the […]

Chinese Calligraphy and Finger Painting

By |February 5th, 2015|

The boys recently tried their hands on Chinese calligraphy and finger painting when we were invited to preview FOX’s new CNY collection in their store. Oh boy, they both had a lot of fun! By the way, if you have yet to do much clothes shopping for your kids this CNY, do keep your eyes peeled to the end of the post. You might just win an outfit for your kid!

I never saw my hyper kids so attentive and so glued to their seats before, so it was really refreshing observing them throughout the class. The class instructor brought them through the basics, the couplets and paintings on display, a bit of history, as well as showing them the four treasures for Chinese calligraphy – ink stick, brush, ink slab/stone and paper. They also had the Chinese seal. All the kids just listened attentively! It also dawned on me […]

Peter Pan – The Neverending Story

By |January 18th, 2015|

I brought the kids to watch the Peter Pan, The Neverending Story musical some weeks back. It isn’t the kids’ first experience in a theatre setting (read: Junior Claus’ experience), and Jerry has been a lot more plays/musicals prior to this. But, it is definitely the only one with both pyrotechnics and acrobatic acts involved.

I probably didn’t do a good job of prepping them with the storyline before hand. I did try to let them watch some Peter Pan cartoon from youtube but they were more interested in the Frozen theme songs (IKR!!) and Transformers instead. That said, I think they both did a very good job in sitting through the entire musical, especially since its beyond their age.

I really should take more pictures with the boys. Sadly, I don’t […]
