Sights and Sounds: Singapore 2012 – Part 1

We took the boys down to Singapore over Christmas. In between catching up with friends and family, we managed to see a few sights around Singapore that proved to be an excellent learning experience for the boys – well, Aristotle more so than Hercules. I really enjoyed our trip because this is how I’ve alwaysContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Singapore 2012 – Part 1”

Universal Studios – Round 2

After our first visit to Universal Studios in Singapore you would think that we would never go back to this place but it appears that time and experience has opened up Aristotle to the whole experience of theme parks. This time it was he who begged to go there. Daddy’s original condition for returning toContinue reading “Universal Studios – Round 2”

Family Venues – Publika Shopping Mall

Since Hercules’ had his trial classes at The Curious Academy, I’ve been trying to find ways to increase his physical engagement. I used to take him to various parks in the morning but (call me paranoid) after hearing all those kidnapping and snatch cases, I haven’t really been game to do it alone. I’ve beenContinue reading “Family Venues – Publika Shopping Mall”

Activities: Melbourne Playground Crawl

Update: this post was written in 2013. Some of the information may be out of date. There’s nothing like a playground to get a child excited, and when you’re in Melbourne, there are playgrounds everywhere. Every neighbourhood has several playgrounds to choose from. The best about young children that is so wonderful is that they aren’tContinue reading “Activities: Melbourne Playground Crawl”

Activities: Fun in the Snow at Lake Mountain

While we were planning out trip to Melbourne, one of Aristotle’s requests was to see snow. After seeing so many references to it on the idiot box, he was just itching to see what it was like in real life. So we planned a trip to Lake Mountain – the nearest mountain to Melbourne withContinue reading “Activities: Fun in the Snow at Lake Mountain”

Activities: Sherbrooke Forest

If you’re wondering about the silence, it’s because we took a trip down under…  One of the things I really miss about Australia is the great outdoors. You don’t have to go far to be immersed in greenery – something we sorely lack back home. One of the first places we visited was Sherbrooke Forest.Continue reading “Activities: Sherbrooke Forest”

Melbourne Sights and Sounds: Science Works

One of the places we visited when we were in Melbourne was Science Works. They had a special dinosaur exhibition on called Explore-a-saurus which will be on display until 15 April 2012. Details Location: 2 Booker St, Spotswood, Victoria, 3015 (Getting There; Melway Reference: 56 B1) Telephone: 13 11 02 (Booking and Enquiries – VictoriaContinue reading “Melbourne Sights and Sounds: Science Works”

Sights and Sounds: Things to do in Victoria, Australia

Just in case anyone was wondering about the sudden silence, we were down in Melbourne for the whole of last week. I ambitiously thought I would have time to update the blog. Instead, it was all I could do to keep up with the boys and the activities they wanted to do. This was aboutContinue reading “Sights and Sounds: Things to do in Victoria, Australia”

Holiday Trip Part 2 – Chilling in Cameron Highlands

After Penang, we stopped over at Cameron Highlands for two nights.  Unless you’re just looking for some R&R, two nights at Cameron Highlands is probably a tad excessive.  Even with all the activities to do in Cameron Highlands, we found ourselves struggling to fill the hours.  In retrospect, we should have spent the extra nightContinue reading “Holiday Trip Part 2 – Chilling in Cameron Highlands”

Holiday Trip – Fun in the Sun in Penang

You might have been wondering about the sudden drop in blog posts…  We’ve been away on holiday to Penang and Cameron Highlands.  It was a new experience for both boys (since Gavin has never traveled north before) and as with all new experiences, it was a fun-filled learning adventure. We stayed at Golden Sands inContinue reading “Holiday Trip – Fun in the Sun in Penang”
