Weekend Exploits #5 - The Treehouse Cafe

This post is almost 3 months late, but better late than never yah?

It was a lazy Saturday morning, and we wanted to have a leisurely brunch with the boy. We decided to explore The Grandstand after reading so much about it on other mummies' blogs. Pasar Bella plus all the kiddy related outlets were good enough reasons to make us interested. 

The Treehouse Cafe is located on the fround floor of The Grandstand and had a 2 storey play area. It seemed perfect for a slow meal while J busies himself at the play area, or so we thought. 

The play area was rather bare to be honest, with toys and books nicely placed on kiddy chairs and shelves. I would say what they have there is sufficient to entertain perhaps 3 to 4 kids? I guess if there isn't many customers, it would be fine.

There were a 3 kids that day. J being the youngest was shoved and told not to touch the toys. So, we took J to the upper deck only to have the kids follow closely behind. No surprise that they snatched all the fun toys and left J with only a ball. Yes... J was upset. But such is playground politics that J will need to increasingly face as he attempts to conquer play areas in Singapore. :) 

Somehow i felt that if there were enough of similar toys or books to go around, the situation would not have been so tensed amongst the little ones. I guess this would be something to think about? Perhaps if we were there with kiddie friends, J might have enjoyed himself more.

I can however appreciate the large space that's used frequently for group activities. And, it makes a nice venue for parties and events for your little ones with all the available space.

Food was acceptable. I did not find it fantastic but it did good by filling my stomach. I had the Eggs Benedict with Jamon while the hubs had The Works.  The Treehouse apparently have a wider choice of food for lunch and dinner, and their breakfast probably did not do the cafe justice. 
I would still come back again despite my less than satisfactory experience, but the next time would be with girlfriends and their kiddos. Perhaps at other times of the day as well so I get to savour their lunch menu. 

Eggs Benedict with Jamon. Rather normal and eggs were slightly well done. 

A rather uncolourful "big breakfast". Something that seemed easy to replicate at home. 

Have you been to The Treehouse Cafe @ The Gandstand? Do share your experience!

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?".
