Family Fun in Tainan - Part 2

We spent a fair bit of time at Tainan when we were there in 2015. And I am glad we did because it is such a culturally rich experience to be able to learn a little bit more about the history of this island country I have come to love.




Part 1 of our holiday in Tainan is here, and since I am very very late in sharing our Tainan experience, I thought why not put together a montage of sorts! A teeny weeny bit of truth here is because I cannot remember a lot of the details now.



For the second leg of our trip to Tainan, we covered the old Anping Street.

It was a little disappointing in terms of what was sold there and most shops were not even open, but the one must stop is the Anping Bean Curd shop. The queue for this silky tofu dessert is a testament of how yummy it is.

We also made pit stops at Fort Zeelandia, Beimen and the Cigu Salt Farms.





We cover pretty much most of Tainan, and what piqued my interest the most was probably the salt farms. Other than the fact that salt comes from the sea, I never quite knew how salt is farmed and eventually made their way to every home.

Once again, our visits to Taiwan has always been educational for the our city boy, and we sure encourage families to make at least one trip there for the experience.

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?".
