Bangkok - 24 to 27 May 07

Been back from bangkok for over two weeks now. But have yet to upload any piccies or updated on my holiday. Well... it was one of the worst holidays I had. No... not because I went there with my mum & MIL.... but because, things seemed to go wrong from the very minute we landed in BKK.

Checked in to Ambassador Hotel (recommended by my colleague... coz of its proxmity to the BTS).... it was already 3 pm..... but they told us the rooms are not ready. Nvm.... we went out for a walk.... came back at 4 pm to only realise that rooms are STILL not ready. They decided to give us two other rooms......


When we told we can finally jump onto the bed and rest our tired feet..... we found that the rooms were dirty...... the shower was broken.. and the arm chairs had blood stains on them!!!! EEEWWW!


So.... me.... the bitchy one.... and a cleanliness freak..... stomped down to the reception to demand that we have the room changed! This is a far cry from my favourite Twin Tower hotel. If not for the convenience for our mothers.... i would have NEVER taken this hotel.


Anyway... they changed the rooms..... but the rooms are like from one end of the hotel to the other!!!!!!! What can i say! The bottomline here is....NEVER EVER stay at this hotel. It is exasperating.


That was not the end of our woes! After we settled into the "new" rooms.... we realised that someone tampered with the lock combination of our suitcase..... it was a brand new suitcase too!. In the end, we had to cut up the suitcase to get our stuff..... sigh...


See our poor suitcase....


What a way to start my long awaited holiday.

Well..... anyway.... here's some pics taken during the trip:

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?".
