My Little Climbing Room (with giveaway!)

We got invited to one of the newest climbing "playground" in town - My Little Climbing Room last month.

Nestled in a quiet residential neighbourhood at Kovan, which I may add upfront isn't the most accessible location. However, after our visit, I feel it is worth the travel, and is fantastic workout for the kids.

Initially, we were apprehensive about visiting because J has only recently regained his strength and we didn't want him to feel upset or inferior if he wasn't able to complete the challenges.

Well... but we went anyway, and we were glad we did because the kid had fun, and he out-did himself by completing all the challenges, albeit being the last to leave.

Welcome to "My Little Climbing Room". 

Before we started, with a portion of the space as a background. Yes, the wall climbing action is going strong here. 

All kids will be given a challenge card. The challenges are based around 4 different 4 metre tall walls. 

The challenges involve the kids using all coloured holds or any particular coloured ones. Each colour gets harder. And each wall gets harder too! 

There were other fun stuff to entertain while waiting for their turn at their walls! This stepper toy is so difficult to manoeuvre. 

More activities and obstacles to play around with. 

This was fun, and for younger kids too where they are supposed to hit on all the circles before time ran out. 

J reached the top of the red wall, which is supposed to be the "easiest" wall. 

.....and the orange one (and the yellow one) 

... and of course the green one! 

After finishing all the challenges, J says his hands hurt... not without a smile on his face. Absolute satisfaction for this boy, and not without a smile! 

While the walls can be challenging for younger kids, there are other walls that are catered for them. Hence, it is a great time out for kids to expend their energies, and more importantly for the older kids, it helps them build a "never say die" attitude by accepting failure and keep trying. Great for building confidence as well! 

We were glad we brought J and proud that he did well especially when he had difficulties even climbing up the stairs not too long ago!

Visit to My Little Climbing Room needs to be reserved in advanced as they only have 15 slots for each session of 2 hours each. There is also an interactive games session in the middle of the session that gets all the kids running around the space, squealing in excitement. Much effort put in by the owners to make this place fun, educational and lively. 

If you are keen to let you kids try wall climbing for the first time, I am giving away 2 complimentary passes to My Little Climbing Room, and all you need to do is:

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?".
