We have been to the Sembawang Shopping Centre playground several times but today we decided to try out the splash park instead. The splash park is in operation on weekdays from 11 am to 2 pm and 5 pm to 8 pm. While on the weekends, it is in operation during 11 am to 8 pm. We went on a weekday afternoon and we pretty much had the whole place to ourselves
The splash park is packed with these water play equipment that features different water movements such as flowing, misting, and jetting.
Unlike most repellent patches currently available in the market which uses citronella or other oils, the Mozzieguard uses 100% natural lemon eucalyptus oil which is according to the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention an effective mosquito repellent on par with DEET repellents. It is also DEET-free, making it safe for infants and young children.
Well, I think we brought it out to its ultimate test field. And that would be the Night Safari after a rainy afternoon! So how did it fare? Read on to find out.
Safra Yishun unveiled a pirate themed kids’ pool recently. It has added a nice touch to the previously bare swimming pool. The play area however is rather small but I doubt that the kids would mind at all.
March is the time when we replenish Mocha’s kibbles, to cut cost we would usually go for the biggest bag of kibbles and have the store separately pack them into vacuum-sealed smaller bags. So this time, we ordered our stuff from Kohepets and if you would like to view the unboxing video, please check it out below.
Kohepets is one of the top leading online pet stores in Singapore and they carry a wide range of products for dogs, cats and other small pets. I did a quick check with a few other online pet stores which I have shopped at before and found their pricing to be pretty competitive too. Continue reading →
My son is a big fan of bouncy castles so when I spotted this event online, I wasted no time in buying the tickets way before the launch. Thanks to Passion card, we managed to get 20% off which was cheaper than the group discount too. So the countdown begun and finally it was our excursion day! We were blessed with great weather today and had so much fun under the sun.
Art-Zoo Inflatable Park, a ticketed festival hub under i Light Marina Bay 2017, is a culmination of an experiential inflatable playground and art installation in the setting of a zoological garden. From plants, animals, to ecosystems, Art-Zoo is a fun and immersive world that explores nature through the perspective of art, creating an imaginative landscape that explores alphabets and animals. Art-Zoo stirs up wonder and curiosity in all of us through a very visual and interactive adventure. (Introduction taken from the website)
Today I am going to write about a topic that has been bugging me for quite sometime; women acting like makeup or even filtering your pictures is such a bad thing. Like it makes you any less beautiful or adequate just because you choose not to go around bare-faced. Now, if you are perfectly fine being au naturale like Alicia Keys, then by all means go ahead. Alicia Keys did also state that her wanting to be makeup-free does not mean that she is anti-makeup. She is not saying that wearing makeup is bad. She is not implying that women who choose to do so, do that to make up for their low self-esteem or whatever other issues you think they have. Alicia Keys just feels better being makeup free and it is her choice. Why should we be persecuting others who choose not to go makeup free?
Today happens to be International Women’s Day, where we celebrate women, their strength, unity and sisterhood. You would expect women to be more supportive of one another but yet ironically, women also tend to be harsh critics of each other. I won’t be surprised if any female on my Facebook list had actually rolled their eyes at my photos such as the one above and bitched about how much makeup I had on or how heavily filtered the picture is, not that I care.
I enjoy watching Tsum Tsum videos and the boy surprisingly knows what Tsum Tsums are. So I decided to bring him to the Disney Tsum Tsum roving parade today. This is one of the perks of being a stay home mother, the ability to make impromptu decisions to go out and join a parade during office hours.
So the roving parade begins at Bugis Square at 4.30pm and ends at Plaza Singapura at 5.45pm. The parade kicks off one of the largest Tsum Tsum carnival in various CapitaLand malls islandwide. So Tsum Tsum fans can expect lots of Tsum Tsum related events and activities in the malls, including merchandise for sale as well. For more information, please check out the official website.
Us in our Tsum Tsum wear because we were going to seek out the Tsum Tsum parade!
Divorce is getting increasingly common in Singapore, even among older couples, despite there still being a lingering taboo surrounding it. Just in 2015, it was reported that there were more divorces and annulment cases as compared to marriages. I certainly do not advocate divorce unless it is the only solution left in a broken marriage. And while divorce is definitely an unpleasant event, it is important to also look at the positive side of it.
Before one begins the process of rebuilding your life after divorce, it is essential to make sure that you are getting the right and proper legal guidance. It is not only important to find the best divorce lawyer but also making sure that the lawyer is a right fit for you. Divorce itself is already a stressful process, so it is essential to make sure that you are getting a good divorce lawyer. No one wants to waste money and time going through several lawyers only to increase the animosity between your spouse and further affecting the children.
I was first introduced to crystals by a friend and yes, I have seen them around shops. I recall that my dad has an amethyst geode at home. From my limited knowledge of crystals, I used to think of crystal usage in primarily Feng Shui functions. Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment. Likewise, many New Age practitioners also use crystals for similar functions as Feng Shui practitioners.
There are two types of crystal collectors, the ones that keep them for their beauty and use them as decorative purposes. And there are the ones who believe that crystals have healing properties and use them in their various mediation or healing processes.
Crystals are thought to possess different levels of energy and have a vibration which can be measured, and according to the level of the vibration can be effective healers of individual chakras. The Sanskrit word Chakra literally Translate to wheel or disk. It is believed that the human body has seven centres of spiritual power,of which these are referred to as the chakra. I could go on more about this but let’s keep things simple and talk about my crystals first.
Crystal healing is an ancient art that dates back many years and I understand that there are studies claiming crystal healing to be pseudoscience. Some believe that it is just a placebo effect that people who had positive encounters with crystal healing. Personally, I would suggest going with your intuition. If you think that crystals are just a bunch of hogwash then it would remain what it is and never work for you. But if you have an open mind when it comes to crystals, then you might be surprised at what you would discover and experience.
