About the 4th birthday party

Image
Birthday parties for the past 3 years have always been quite a taboo in our little family. Other than J's full month party which he probably remembered nothing about, every other party we tried to organise never quite materialized. We finally managed to pull off a party this year! I hope he does not ask for one every year though .  His first birthday was cancelled 2 days before the party day because he got his first HFMD. For his second birthday, we wanted a small do with some friends. That got cancelled too because he had a drippy nose. So for his third, we decided to do without a party.

A walk in the park: Choa Chu Kang Park

The man and I decided quite randomly, during a car journey that we should attempt to visit a different park each weekend morning since we are all early risers. This is our attempt to spend quality time with the boy, encourage outdoor activities as well as reduce screen time. Fresh air on a weekend morning sounds like a great start to the day doesn't it? So, here's our first, and off we went to Choa Chu Kang Park . As short walk from Choa Chu Kang MRT Station, this part is nicely tucked against some lush greenery and spreads over 11 hectures. According to the NParks website, the park has 4 main areas. Well, we managed to cover one area which has 3 dfferent playgrounds. Heaven for the boy I suppose. Entering the park, walking along the fitness stations. 

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?".
