Cold Storage Kids Run 2015

Back to regular programming after our week long vacation in Taiwan... Let me start by covering the Cold Storage Kids' Run which happened 2 weeks ago.

Firstly, kudos to the organising committee from ESG. I think this year's run was very much more organised than the 2014 one.

The holding area (which I had a lot of grouses about) was better managed and the kids didn't need to wait too long before their turn to run, which is crucial for a good race experience for the younger kids (aka the Jolly Kiwis).

The Jolly Kiwis were also given an earlier start compared to the 9plus am start in 2014. It was great because the sun wasn't as punishing then, and J was obviously less grouchy.

We definitely had more fun this year and our little champ did great too! He had papa carry him only halfway and ran the rest. A marked improvement from his first Kids' Run!

Perhaps, we were also more prepared this time around. I had both hot and wet weather plans. 
Sunscreen, caps and adequate water checked.

Rain coat and crocs for the kid, ponchos for hubby and me all checked in case of a downpour like last year!

We will very likely make this an annual event for the kiddy and I may just do the run with J instead Papa next year.

Starting the day a little grouchy. Remember this look from last year

Slightly happier after offering a sweet. 
The less crowded holding area.
Off they went....

Letting the boy down to complete the run.

"Hand-in-hand, we run, run, run!"

Yay! A medal!

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?".
