Anniversary Staycation @ Siloso Beach Resort

30th December 2011 saw us celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary. Time certainly zooms pass us, and this anniversary will be the last where we celebrate as "just us". Next year this time, Beanie will join in the celebration... as the labour of our love  :)

Dying to go overseas, I booked ourselves into Siloso Beach Resort @ Sentosa. (Well... going across that bridge is still considered overseas right? ) I  will do a short review of the resort in a while, but just let me recount the day's happenings first.

Celebrations started on 29th December.  We got up bright & early, and headed to the sonographer's for my week 20 fetal anomaly scan. I was a little nervous as I have not seen Beanie for over a month, so am not sure if everything's alright. My worries were unfounded, and this early morning visit brought us the best anniversary present we could ask for.... that was the gender of Beanie.

We are expecting a Dragon Boy! Yay! This wonderful news....coupled with Dr F's report that all is well with my pregnancy changed what we had planned for the rest of the day.

After checking into the resort, instead of basking @ the pool before dinner, we trooped out to Vivocity for a happy movie. Movie was an excuse to be out @ civilisation so I can pop into MotherCare and Spring Maternity and Toys R Us to make a mental list of things I want to get for little Dragon Boy.

That pretty much sumed up our pre-anniversary celebrations.

The pool eventually found a place in our schedule the next morning....and all we could talk about was little Dragon Boy.

Well.... while i often lament at how much I  wanted a kid all these years, I think the five years being married without one has brought Hwa and I even closer.... and it seems we are more loving than we had been 5 years ago.

Maybe it's because we only had each other. And, because of that.... it has made us appreciate this pregnancy so much more.... and all I want to say this year is Thank You Lord for the most wonderful gift,.... the best we ever had so far.

Now... for my humble review of Siloso Beach resort:

As you enter it's premises, you will be greeted with the lush greenery that's  promised on their website. I fell in love with the place instantly as it brings us into another space, completely away from the concrete jungle we are so tired of.

Their landscape pool was also to die for. Apparently, the pool contains natural spring water that's harvested from the hill's reserves. It is a surprise to me... Singapore has spring water?! If I had all day, I would be lounging by the pool... taking dips the whole time. They even have water slides by the pool that caters to kiddos. When beanie comes along... this will be one of the short getaway destinations on our list.

However, before that, I think the management needs to think about upgrading / renovating their rooms. It does seem pretty run down with wet patches on their ceiling, and no mobile network in the rooms. Their small and pathetic TV also seems outdated.

Yilan for kids - Taiwan Travelogue

Our recent trip to Taiwan brought us to Yilan. Although we initially worried that it will be boring for the boy as it is more of a "back to nature" part of Taiwan, we enjoyed ourselves very much, and wished we spent more time there. Surprisingly, Yilan packs more fun for the kid than expected.



Here's some places you can check out if you are going down that way and I will let the pictures do the talking! 

My thoughts on the Glenn Doman Learning Method

When I was invited to attend a baby learning seminar about the Glenn Doman Learning Method , I wasn't prepared to feel what I did after that.

There were fleeting thoughts in that 3 hours for me to leave my job to be at home with J.

I also had my heart swell with pride despite not having been the most conscientious mum in helping my son to learn. Yet the time he spent in school has helped him reach all his developmental and learning milestones.  

Fun for kids in the West of Singapore- Part 1

My family moved to the western part of Singapore when I was 3 years old. For as long as I can remember , I have lived here, and will likely continue to for an even longer time.


At different points, people have asked me what's there to do here in the west as it seems so far away. The common comments I hear from friends while in school were "you live in tuas ah....the industrial area? " Or... "which kampong is that?".
