Anchorvale Swimming complex - family fun

Mummy and Ah Yi joins us after our Wei and Kang's swimming lesson.
Yi is always so happy in the water.

Video : Daddy managed to film Wei swimming underwater

Everybody looks happy :)


Asian Civilisation Museum - Mughal weekend

Last Sunday, we went to Asian Civilisation Museum (ACM). The key highight was India's Mughal kingdom. These warriors and rulers reigned India in the 16th and 17th century. Opulence is commonly used to describe their lavish lifestyles.


Daddy explains : Men use Swords and Women don Jewels

Our little Mughal . Wei looks nice in his turban, but Kang and Yi declined.

We pop by Singapore River exhibit

Video : Singapore River, then and now



Kiddos posing, here, there, everywhere.

Exit, and we had more fun Outdoors :p

Some monuments along Singapore River.

Video : Skyline of CBD



Normal extrance fee for Adult is $8, but last Sat/Sun
was Mughal open house, and entrance was free.
We did not really enjoy Mughal, as the exhibits could be
too abstract for Daddy's two little audience.
Refer to AsianCivilisation website for more exhibition highlights.

T3 Kiddy rides again- with our cousins

We were at T3 two weeks ago, and we decide to make a beeline for the tracks again. But this round, we brought some reinforcements (our cousins Kara and Joley) to attack the kiddy rides.
The two oldest boys upgraded to F1 circuit.
Wei got his Trek, and Kang a Yellow F1.

Video : bigger rides


Yi and Kara stayed on the "basic- L-plate" circuit keke.
Nevertheless, Kara and Joley had a jolly good time.

Video : smaller rides . Yi's Harley is cool.

All the parents followed their kiddos on the Tracks...
and we help to salvage the cars when they get hit-and-runs.


Video : Wei's ride can drift, but F1s still faster

H20 - quench our thirst, medium for F.U.N

In these Dry months, how can we cool down?
We would like to share our outings, splashing, and wet experiences.
In case you have not noticed, Water is always our medium for Fun,
when it comes to Sengkang babies :-)



On a side note, this article was drafted when Singapore was having one of it's dryest spells, but sibilings El-Nino and La-Nina have other plans. Singapore is suddenly wet (with thunderstorms) for the weekend. Wierd !

Sack'n Seat, Portable seat for toddlers 6-24 months



We have been looking around for this seat.
Imagine, toddlers can be adjusted ( or restrained :p ) to any seat.
What's more, it can be difficult to grab baby-seats or high-chairs in restaurants.

"Sack'n Seat" is portable, and very ideal for overseas travelling.
Lightweight, secure but not flimsy. (suitable for toddlers from 6 to 24 months)

Refering to first pic, look at how we wrapped up Ah Xin.
Girl, your hands should be outside :p



This seat is retailing at $39 but Mummy got promotion for $26.

Marina Barrage - rainy day

After our Canon photography session, we toured
Sustainable Singapore Gallery.
Look at all the mineral water bottles.
Are they recycled, yucks?

Video : Quick run, Blue avatar's house?



We sort of rush through the gallery, as the boys were anticipating some splashing fun.
We went to Marina Barrage a few months back, and Daddy came prepared with extra clothing.


Video : The birds, and the pump (crest)



The boys have been to the gallery before, as part of their school excursion.

But their School excursion is Dry. Daddy's excursion is always wet and sweaty :p

Video: Run faster, Daddy is coming


The rain has cooled the arena, and temperature was hovering between 25 or 26 degrees. And the water was quite Chilling keke.
Luckily these two boys were running up and down to warm up !!

There was a mini carnival for World-Water-Day (what is this?)
And some artists were dancing on stage.
We had the whole "pool" to ourselves. Initially it felt wierd, as the other parents are more reserved or paiseh... but very soon, their kiddos join us keke..

Video : Lure of "water+fun" is too much to resist !!

Dads for Life and Canon photography introduction

It was raining the whole day, but some 30 parents were at
Marina Barrage for Canon's photography tips. This event is jointly organised by DadsForLife.

The carpark was almost Full, and a lot of tourists also came to visit the Barrage.
Rain or Sun, we are determined to have fun, and enjoy ourselves.

Canon's speaker is Lawrence, who shared with us photography fundamentals and tips. Daddy learned that he should use a tripod more often, so that he will be in more pictures.

The kids were wondering why this 'kor kor" kept snapping away.
And they were on his focus for a while.
Daddy has to bring some cars to entertain the boys, as he is worried we will make a scene :p

Wondering why Wei behaves so differently in two pictures below?
Our boys also like to pose with girls keke.

After the class, maybe Daddy got some homework.

Daddy: Currently still seating on the bench, considering jumping into DSLR world.
But Daddy need to get more exposures to ISO, Aperture, and Shutter first on his compacts. Otherwise, Daddy will only use new DSLR as a point and shoot
(which defeats the purpose?)

Part 2 of our WET Marina Barrage escapade is up..

Breakfast at Ah Kun

Sat, rainy day.
We drove to CompassPoint for our breakfast.


Ah Kun, our kiddos liked their toasted bread, rich in Kaya and butter.
Wei also like their kopi and half-boiled egg.

Our warehouse - packed with children items


In our storeroom. you will see dozens of Wet wipes and diapers.
We have to pack extras, in case childcare run out of stocks.
Normally, we will wait for promotions in the hypermarts, before ordering in bulk.

These kiddos are high maintenance :0

Look, even milk also got different variations.
Early in the morning, when Daddy just wakes up, he can be blur and mess up kiddos' milk-concoction. But luckily, no one has drank Mummy's "Similac Mum" yet haha.


As a consolation (for the $$investment), at least Kiddos bring smiles, and sometimes headaches to Mummy and Daddy :p

Last evening, we went to Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3,
We heard there is one corner for kiddy rides.

Look at Xin, she is one cool passenger, and Yi is the driver.
However, Yi did not realised we are using Remote to control his Volkswagen VW hahaha.

Video : the bigger rides



Video : Cute siblings


Daddy and Mummy kept giggling at Yi and Xin.
Xin's hand was grabbing the car-side and refuse to let go.
Tension or Stressed?

Video : Wen Yi L-Plate (learner)


More information :
- T3 at B2, car Park 3A
