[Phuket Travel] Novotel Resort Surin

Image
With J's condition heading in the right direction, we wanted to take on a holiday to celebrate his birthday (which was 2 months ago! LOL!) J learns by experience, hence we prefer to take him on trips versus buying him gifts. We stopped the travelling for a while, and were more than happy we made this holiday happen sooner than we had expected.  This was my 4th trip to Phuket, and I wanted to stay at a beach other than Patong, away from the sometimes rowdy crowd.  By now, you guys probably can tell, I prefer a little bit more peace and quiet when it comes to holiday accomodation choice. 

3 reasons why making terrariums can teach your kid a thing or two

Image
Did you know that terrariums are really costly? I love terrariums and I love how they can make me happy just by looking at them,  but I can never figure out why they are always so expensive. (Oh! And, I am really bad at keeping them alive, which is probably not best discussed on this post) That said, when Masons Home Decor offered me a DIY Terrarium Kit, I thought why not. Maybe, I can start making my own going forward, just in time for our new home (if it happens this year!). But...it is through this activity, I realised why terrariums cost so much, and rightly so and that's because making them is an art which requires a good deal of patience and precision! This boy, in his excitement to start poured the coloured pebbles in before the soil and mixed them all up. So we ended up with no pebbles after that! LOL! J and I had good fun working on the pack and here's 3 reasons why we will not hesitate to do this again although it's a huge big mess! 1) Makin

4 reasons to have a staycation at Pan Pacific Singapore

Image
Orchard may be the shopping belt of sunny Singapore, but if I get to choose a staycation in town, I will steer towards choosing the City Hall or Suntec area because of the family fun options at there. We did just that in February for a quick weekend recharge, and after going through prices and monitoring them over a couple of weeks, I picked Pan Pacific at the Marina Bay area, and after just one night there, I am convinced Pan Pacific could be nicely placed for a family staycation, just to spend quality time with one another.

Keeping it real after birth

There's a saying around pregnancy and childbirth where I believe many mothers can agree to, and that is, pregnancy is usually the easiest part. The hard part comes around needing to cope with the new baby and other responsibilities . 

February is the new January

Image
Hello! I cannot believe how January has flown past us.  Whoosh... ! Just like that.

2016. I am glad you are leaving.

Image
If I had to rate how 2016 was from a scale of 1 to 5 where 1 is absolutely horrible, and 5 is perfect, I think I will barely make it to 1. No sugar coating at all, it was a biatch (if you all will just indulge my language on my family kinda blog).

[Taiwan Family Holidays] FunCar 放假 Minsu in Tainan.

Image
We were in Tainan last December. yes, almost a year ago and I am still trying to complete all my posts on that trip.  I think this will be the second last post of the December 2015 trip as I cover one more interesting minsu we stayed at in Tainan. Well, as this was so long ago,  I am just going to do a photo spam! So beware of a really long photo posts. :) " Wah!! This is too cool! Just my type of fun " P.S Look at the really cute vintage cars in the background. No wonder the name "FunCar". However, what goes on updates in the 2nd and 3rd floors is even more amazing!"
