The Color Run Singapore 2014

The 3 of us took part in The Color Run Singapore 2014 last Saturday, our first run as a family.

While I was not looking forward to the run initially as I was afraid the heat might make the boys (husband included) grouchy, I wanted (on the other hand) at least experience how it feels like to be doused with color along a 5km run.

Dubbed as the " happiest 5k on the planet", the event certainly lived up to it's name. The crowd were there to have genuine fun! There were no age barriers, and kiddos as young as J were very much welcome by the crowd of runners in his stroller. People gave way to us, hi-fived the boy along the way and "splashers" while having fun throwing dye at runners were mindful of young kids by asking if we minded having J splashed at.

Having the event at Sentosa was also a nice way see the island on foot, and explore some of the walking trails which we are sometimes not privy to.

Well done to the organisers of The Color Run, and yeah.. I think there is possibly a second time for our little family of 3 especially when I am sure all 3 of us had a lot of fun that day!

"Urghhh...... I want to start to run... like NOW!" 

" Oh! I see a dancing unicorn!" 

" Huh? You mean you are running? Wait ah Mummy... i finish my koko krunch first".

Post run picture. The little one is obviously in a better mood. 

Yeah! We are done... with very little colour... all thanks to the little one!

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?".
