Cosmic Kidland Penang

Fun in Penang for Kids 

Did you know that Penang has their very own version of Kidzania? Well, not surprised if tourists don't know this as it is housed in the most unkid-like location. Kidland Penang sits on the 4th and 5th storey at Pragnin Mall, which is like our Sim Lim here in Singapore.





Kidland Penang 
With a similar concept as BabyBoss in Taipei and Kidzania in the other major cities, Kidland allows kids (obviously) to experience various types of occupations, earn some Kidland dollars and exchange them for some gifts. 

There's even 2 indoor playgrounds within the premise. The playgrounds are quite impressive I must say taking up two storeys, and it sure looks like some complicated obstacle course. 


J did not dare go down this mega-slide. But he was happy enough to climb and run about within the play area. 

This is still under "construction" when we were there. I was impressed with how they managed to build this like a mini-obstacle course up in the air.
J the fireman! Learning how to use the fire extinguisher.

J loved being a policeman and we did this two days in a row. 
This is only one part of Kidland. There are about 15 stations where kids can experience different occupations. And other "attractions" such as kiddy rides and the playgrounds as mentioned. 


Kidland in Penang has so much potential, but it is a pity that this place lacks 人气. We stayed a short distance from Pragnin Mall, hence we were there every evening for the 3 nights we spent in Penang. All 3 times, there were very little people at Kidland. If you noticed in the "Police Station" picture, J was the only kid there. I would have prefered if he got to experience the place with other kids. 

It could be the location, or maybe it is not as well publicised? Whatever the reason is, Kidland is probably worth the visit if you happen to be around the area. 

Pragnin Mall is behind Traders Hotel and 1st Avenue Shopping Mall.

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?".
