Kidzania Singapore

4 July was a school holiday and since I was feeling generous I took leave and brought the twins to kidzania Singapore. They had been looking forward to it since their visit to the kidzania in bangkok.

Excited boys waiting for the bus to take them to harbourfront.

Admiring my 300¥ bracelets on the bus

Got a shock when we reached kidzania. There was one single queue for everybody. Regardless of whether you are a walk-in customer or have already purchased your tickets online. So even though we already purchased our tickets we had to queue for an hour to get in. What a waste of time!

First activity – convenience store.

This was our first activity because it was near the entrance and the queue was relatively short as compared to the popular ones  (fireman, policeman, pilot etc).

Junpig doing his dream job again. His joy is genuine

Boys practically dancing with joy after collecting their first salary of the day!

Second activity – board the tour bus!

This was a no-waiting activity. The tour bus was actually waiting for more participants before it can move off!


Third activity – bak kwa

Boys looking pretty legit with the cap

In full concentration

Happy to receive the generous salary.. hee hee..

Fourth activity – learning lab 

We persevered with our strategy to join the shortest queue. So the next one was to enrol them in some learning activity. The module they took was about budgeting and stuff. 

While waiting for them I couldn’t help but oooh and a aah over these cute little cleaners washing the windows outside 

Fifth activity – bank vault

We chose this activity because it’s one of the jobs that gave us higher salary now that we owned  a “university degree”

Boys looking very lost.

Sixth activity – peranakan museum 

Only junpig participated because mupig was not keen on the extra earnings.. he wanted to make burgers..

Seventh activity  - burger making 

Mupig was very excited after he made his burger. He said “I made the best burger in the universe!”

Junpig joined the queue when mupig was feasting on his burger. After junpig completed his activity I asked if he made the best burger in the universe and he replied humbly “no lah.. mine is just the best in kidzania lah.. ”

One wefie before we left sentosa.. notice someone’s sad face

Overall I am not keen to go back to kidzania Singapore.  It is expensive,  feels small (compared to bangkok),  and is too crowded. 

If you die die have to bring your kids there,  I would advise bringing along your own water, bread or some snacks because the queues at food outlets can get crazy during mealtimes. Also,  queue for the food activities like soup,  pizza,  burger during off-peak hours like 11am and 3pm. 

Kiki’s 4d3n staycation at kkh

It was the eve of vesak day (20 May) and I took leave because the childcare centre was closed. Kiki woke up normally but her right eyelids turned slightly reddish by lunch time. When I brought her to the doctor after lunch she was already having a fever. 

The swelling worsened the next day so we brought her to A&E (as advised by the doctor who saw her one day ago). She was admitted immediately for further treatment.

The ward doctors put her on antibiotics administered intravenously but the fever and swelling did not subside..

In fact, the swelling was at its worst the day after they increased the antibiotics dosage.

When the swelling finally subsided a bit, the bruise darkened to a dark pinkish red patch..

She was finally discharged on Tuesday 24 May.. after spending 4 days in the hospital.. 

It’s only 19 June and I am on leave again because kiki woke up with a swollen left eye today and is starting to develope a low fever.. #FML
I hope she doesn’t end up in hospital again.

Mupig + Junpig 语录

Cj: mummy will buy you the latest gundam toy on 31st June ok?
Junpig: but there is no 31st June!
Mupig: I don’t wanna wait until 31st July!

Hmmm.. one points out my obvious “mistake” to me and the other one just pretends that I meant to buy him the toy in July..


4th staycation at Crowne Plaza Hotel

so.. the boring family went for a staycation at Crowne Plaza Hotel AGAIN!

on our third stay, we were given a free upgrade to the suite and it was so shiok that fat X decided to book the suite again for our fourth stay!

the room


this was the toilet at the room entrance


the room was pretty dark when we first entered. it had a long work desk and a sofa. excited kid was not part of the room.


while i was busy taking pictures, the phua’s had already started exploring the place.


the “pantry” area with coffee machine (which we did not use at all), electric kettle, and an assortment of teas and coffee beverages.


the main sleeping area, with king-sized bed


the wardrobe area that is the size of a small HDB bedroom!


the main bathroom with two sinks, a bathrub on the left, and shower stall and toilet on the right. kpo baby sold separately.


excited children behaving like they’ve never been to a bathroom before.


eldest son chilling on the bed, watching TV.


kiki and cj chilling out at the Lounge, where nice coffee and cookies are served for VIP guests. all. day. long.

you see.. that’s why we did not touch the coffee machine in the room at all. why make your own coffee when there are people who can make nice coffee for you?


nice floral centerpiece on the coffee table.


someone wondering if the flowers are edible


had to buy snacks to keep her seated TuT


the sofa in front of the study desk? it opens up to a bed (and this was where the twins slept!)


silly baby had so much fun falling into the mattress :’D


random photo of baby shoes because.. i think the nicest thing about having a girl is this. baby girl shoes are too cute!


i love this photo! the didi and meimei hiding behind a wall, ready to jump on the papa and gor gor.. hee hee..


meimei checking out the gym


wefie on the sofa bed :’D


when you have three young kids, it’s tough to get a photo where everyone looks into the camera


you end up with pictures like this


after about 100 tries, you finally get one where everyone is looking at the camera, but your eldest son is out of focus.. >.<

overall, it was a great staycation! although it’s already our fourth time here, the kids were not bored with the activities because this time round it was “The Great American Vacation” and there were lots of free activities for the young. not to mention the free popcorn and cotton candy!

Ruopig 语录 papa penis!

Baby kiki is finally old enough to have her own 语录 debut.. so why not start with something scandalous?
This evening she kept repeating “Papa penis! Papa penis!” after her bedtime milk feed..
It turned out that she was trying to tell fat X she had FINISHED the milk and was passing the empty bottle back to him  :’D

Mupig 语录

Mupig may be the most chill primary school student ever.
Cj: 大宝宝,明天有听写,怎么办?你都还没有 practise!
Mupig: aiyoh nevermind lah.. do correction lor..

Instead of scolding him i actually laughed  #worstmummyever

Happy CNY!

Happy  猴年 to you!! My origami monkeys and 财神爷 sibeh cute right?


Thanks to my total lack of self-control (i single-mouthedly finished one tub of love letters in a week), i fell sick just before the arrival of fire monkey. So i was down with a clogged sinus, painful throat, and headache from hell on 初一。

Then, little kiki developed fever on 初二。

I was supposed to start work today  (初三) but kiki was still feverish.

My downstairs gp was still enjoying his cny bak kwa and whatnot (a.k.a. his clinic was closed today) and i was desperate for a child mc (also, because I’m running out of fever meds and have no flu meds at home) so i registered kiki at the pd clinic next door.


i registered at 10-ish in the morning and at around 11, i was told to return at 12pm to see the doc. Our queue number was 33 and when we returned at 12, the queue number was like 22. It was 19 when we left  meaning the doctor only saw like 3 patients in an hour? And the saddest thing is.. i saw the SAME PEOPLE waiting in the clinic. Don’t these people have anything better to do? Life is too precious to be spent inside a clinic, waiting to see a doctor.
The clinic staff told me to go home and come back at 2.45pm. Yeah right, i am so going to spend my day off rushing to and fro just so i could get some fever and cold meds from an overpaid doctor.

I brought kiki home and set off to the shops near tiong bahru plaza, because there are so many clinics there, surely one of them must be open right?

I was so elated when i saw people sitting outside dr chua’s clinic. HIS CLINIC WAS OPEN!!!

The best thing was.. the clinic does not break for lunch and i was told to come back in an hour’s time to see the doc and when we went over after an hour, we really went in to see the doc! No bullshit about coming back at 4pm etc. 真是爱死他了!

I have never brought my kids to see a pd and this is exactly why. Freaking waste of time. Why do you need to see a specialist for common shit like flu and fever?

Ok i shall end my rant. Really need to get this shit off my chest  ^_^;

Let’s now admire some wefies we took on 初一 while waiting for tb to finish pooping. I really hope he kicks this habit. 每次要出门了才要大便。knn..


Every birdie smile for the camera!


Every birdie still smiling..


Kiki quickly got bored.. look at her stone face when the three of us were monkeying around.. 可见默契是要培养的!我们母子怎么说也有了六年多的默契了!


and her wtf face.. haha haha..

ok lah, 不聊了.. now junpig is having fever also and i need to make another trip to dr chua’s clinic.. le sigh ~
