An Out-of-this-World Christmas at City Square Mall

The year end madness is upon us. We had a busy weekend but still managed to squeeze in a visit to City Square Mall to see the Transformers live on stage!

 

 

Space explorers young and old were transported to Cybertron to see the Transformers. My boys were thrilled to see Optimus Prime and Bumblebee (as well as the adorable Sqweeks) make an appearance. If your kids like robots and fighting scenes, then this show is for you!

After the show, we also went for the mask-making workshop where the boys could colour in their own Transformers masks and dress up as their fave Transformers!

Wahaha, you can’t even tell which child is behind the masks!

The best part was the galactic carnival games at the Cyber Galaxy (at City Green Park). There’s a shooting range, obstacle course, robot bouncy castle and bumper cars. My boys had the best time 🙂

LEGO fun with Brikkon

Hands up, who loves LEGO®? (Me!)

I shared about some of our favourite toys some time back  and LEGO® is one of the toys we always have around because my three boys play with them on a daily basis. I loved LEGO® as a child too so I fully understand the allure 😉

That was why I was pleasantly surprised to be introduced to Brikkon by a new local online store Poppies and Rainbows.

A bit of background on Poppies and Rainbows first. The online store was started by a Singaporean mother of two who takes great pride in sourcing delightful finds in childrenswear, nursery décor and playthings from all over the world. Many of the brands were created by mothers themselves, tried and tested by their own children. You can expect to find beautiful products, lovingly handcrafted or manufactured in small, meaningful quantities by awesome brands.

Brikkon are wooden structures which are specially made to be compatible with LEGO®. Its wooden structures are easily put together and there are endless possibilities how LEGO® can be added to it.

I got two sets for the boys – the Castle and the Treehouse. They come neatly packaged and the set-up is simple enough even for my boys. The wood is sturdy and beautifully finished with a light, minimalist feel to it. It is lovely to touch and play with.

Once set up, it was time to bring on the LEGO®!

The Brikkon base provides a good starting point for construction with LEGO® bricks. You do need a bit of dexterity and strength to fit the hollow base of bricks to the Brikkon grooves and maybe a bit of trial and error to find the right bricks that would fit (only LEGO® bricks with hollow undersides would fit).

As you can see, my boys were happily engrossed elaborate structures complete with lookout towers, aerial walkways, staircases, long chains for the LEGO® characters to rappel down the walls of the castle. I didn’t have to direct their play at all and they were at it for a good hour.

Hmph, they did reject my suggestions to decorate the windowsills of the castle with coloured blocks and flowers. Boys!

I really loved the add-ons as well. The  Treehouse set came with a ladder and an itty-bitty swing and the Castle has a cute functional catapult.

I also appreciate the fact that the sets pack flat once dismantled so they hardly take up any space at all.

If you have lots of LEGO® at home (who doesn’t?), Brikkon is a good complementary toy to go with it. I would definitely recommend it for children aged 5 and up.

Here are some of the other Brikkon designs that Poppies and Rainbows carries:

They also have Brikkon for DUPLO bricks for younger children (I may get this for Jo!):

Good news, Poppies and Rainbows is having a 15% storewide discount with the code ‘15%TODAY’ from now till 31 Dec 2017. And just for the Black Friday weekend, there’s a 20% for the ‘Sale’ department and a whopping 30% off orders above SGD200. Do have a browse of the store as it has lots of lovely items like this cool Wildling tee, straw bags and secret fairy doors. Perfect time to stock up for Christmas!

SRT’s The Little Company presents Chicken Little

Singapore Repertory Theatre’s The Little Company is delighted to present their latest offering in children’s theatre with their latest production, Chicken Little

Coming hot on the heels of the tremendous success of Red Riding Hood, SRT is thrilled to be working with one of London’s hottest new musical theatre teams – Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary.

Combined with the exceptional talents of director Kate Golledge, this is a show where magic happens not only for the audience but for all those working behind the scenes as well. This musical was selected to be presented in a showcase for new musicals in the making at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace last month, testament to the great work this team is creating.


Suitable for kids aged 3 and above, Chicken Little is a delightfully chirpy musical adventure with toe-tapping songs about a plucky chicken who goes on the adventure of a lifetime.

Chicken Little overcomes her insecurities and embarks on a brave quest to save her fellow farmyard animals. She meets a whole host of quirky, vibrant much-loved characters, including Cocky Locky, Ducky Daddles and the brave Turkey Lurkey. 
But with the fearsome Foxy Loxy on the loose, can they make it to the King alive?

Won’t spoil the surprise but it’s a very entertaining show. Children will be able to identify with Chicken Little as she summons her courage to do things she normally wouldn’t to do.

I also love that the show portrayed Ducky Daddles as a one-legged duck to show the children that we are never limited by our circumstances.

Once again, I was very impressed by the actors switching between their multiple roles seamlessly (with even some cross-dressing, haha) and playing them masterfully. I thought Natalie Yeap was brilliant as Foxy Loxy!

Here’s a trailer of the show if you are interested:

Charlotte Nors, SRT’s Managing Director said, “The Little Company has been inspiring, entertaining and engaging kids and their families for 15 years now, building a strong tradition for family theatre not just for SRT but more importantly for Singapore and the wider entertainment industry. Chicken Little is a fitting way to celebrate this significant anniversary; the 450,000 kids delighted by the productions; and the careers and talents that have been launched whilst making children’s theatre a mainstay of Singaporean family life.”

Good fun for the whole family. My boys really enjoyed the show and are still talking about the silly antics of the characters. Do go watch it before it ends!

DATES: Weekdays 10am and weekends 11am and 2pm from 25th October to 8th December 2017

PRICES: From $25, excluding SISTIC fee. Group discounts/Family Packages available.

VENUE: KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT, 20 Merbau Road

Creative fun at Caltex Fuel Your School – Tech Jam 2017

Last weekend, we attended a fun interactive workshop which was part of Caltex Fuel Your School – Tech Jam 2017, an enrichment program  organised by Caltex Singapore and Singapore Science Centre.

Caltex Fuel Your School – Tech Jam 2017 is an enrichment program that aims to spark curiosity in coding and tinkering through free interactive workshops that bring theoretical knowledge to life through fun art and design applications.

The program features free interactive workshops that aim to inspire students’ passion for innovation and encourage creative thinking, while breaking perceptions of traditional gender stereotypes associated with the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Integrating arts and design with traditional STEM subjects, the following projects avaialble at the workshops were specially curated by the Science Centre mentors for their simplicity, relevance to real-world applications, and gender neutrality:

  • Sewing with Electronics – Introducing students to the emerging field of e-textiles, and the broader industries of wearables, architecture, and smart homes.
  • Programming with Arduino – Introducing students to the world of coding, robotics and electronics through coding projects.
  • Music with Makey-Makey – Introducing students to coding and electronics through the creation of music with real world objects.
  • Creating with Paper Circuits – Introducing students to electronics through craft projects that adds light to their paper creations.

We tried out the Creating with Paper Circuits workshop where we made simple electrical circuits using LED lights, copper tape and batteries.

The children were introduced to the basic concepts of electrical circuits – they learnt what materials make good conductors and that the circuits need to be closed for electricity to pass through.

Look at their happy faces when they figured out how to light their LED lights!

Once they figured out the basic concepts, they quickly moved on to making torchlights and lighted paper flowers using the provided craft materials. I was very impressed!

At the session, we also got to try out a Makey Makey flower piano:

Such an enriching session – my boys were so inspired they continued to build circuits at home all weekend!

Caltex Fuel Your School – Tech Jam 2017 is open to the public on the weekend of 14 and 15 October 2017. Simply present your Plus! Card and Caltex fuel receipt at the Science Centre to enjoy 20% discount on admission fees from 8 Sep to 31 Dec 2017.

Happy Mid-autumn Festival!

The Mid-Autumn Festival is one of my favourite Chinese festivals mainly coz it’s so low-key and simple.

Finally tried my hand at making snowskin mooncakes for the first time this year (with natural colouring from blue pea flowers). I made Oreo and cheese flavoured mooncakes and my mum made lotus paste ones. It is very easy and now I wonder what took me so long to learn! My mum made those in the pictures – the designs are so beautiful! Mine turned out quite ugly so I didn’t bother to take pictures of them.

So glad the rain finally cleared for a bit at night so we could go out toting lanterns. The full moon went into hiding behind the clouds but that did not deter us one bit. I didn’t bother buying cellophane lanterns this year coz we had lots of paper ones lying around and I knew my boys would toss them aside within 5 minutes!

Loved the awe on their faces, especially little Joey, when their lanterns got lit in the dark. Ryan’s lantern caught fire early on and they thought it was hilarious. And sure enough they tossed their lanterns to us within 5 minutes 😉

Then it was sparklers time! We haven’t played it in a while and the boys loved it. Check out Ryan’s sparkler dance!

We also played ‘Pop-pop’. They are mini firecracker things which you toss on the ground for a loud ‘pop’ sound. I loved playing with them as a child and was so happy to see them in Malacca so I brought some back for the boys to play (not sure if it is legal or not haha). They finished 4 boxes in no time 😉

Hope you had a Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Eric Carle Favourites by ACT 3 International

Who’s a fan of the Hungry Caterpillar? (Me!)

We are delighted to hear that ACT 3 International will be presenting The Very Hungry Caterpillar & Other Eric Carle Favourites by Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia, Canada.

This magical work of black light theatre brings together the beloved tales of award-winning
children’s book illustrator and writer Eric Carle – The Very Hungry Caterpillar; Little Cloud
and The Mixed Up Chameleon – and is suitable for 3 to 6 year olds. It will be staged at
Victoria Theatre from 6 to 15 October 2017.

Three meaningful stories will be presented:

  • The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the adventures of a tiny and hungry caterpillar and its eventual metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly – what does it chomp along the way?
  • Little Cloud is a charming little tale of how it decides to stray away from his fellow mates to go on an adventure that finds him morphing into various objects such as a sheep, clown and even a shark!
  • And finally, in The Mixed Up Chameleon, toddlers will be able to associate colours and meanings to objects through the reptile who eventually embraces his uniqueness after an identity crisis happens. Mermaid Theatre’s version mirrors the book’s stunning illustrations drawn in thick, brilliant brushstrokes of blues, greens and reds.

This timeless production is the perfect platform to introduce drama to children as it is a
captivating showcase of stunning visual effects, innovative shadow puppetry, and vibrant
music. Within a short span of one hour, little ones will be also be enriched by knowledge of
science, the arts and even morality – all inspired by the themes highlighted in the storybook.
This triple bill will enthral the young with its magical transformation of well-loved tales into a
larger-than-life piece of theatre.

Elaborates Ms Ruby-Lim Yang, Artistic Director of ACT 3 International: “Eric Carle’s art and narrative are so pure and elegant. Nothing should hold us back from making this the first theatre experience for very young children!”

The show was sublime today – we thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the elegant storytelling, stunning visuals and vibrant music. It was probably my favourite theatre show by far!

If you are going, be sure to stay till the Q&A at the end where the puppeteers come out to answer questions from the audience. I was so tickled by how the ‘tongue machine’ worked!

Please go watch it – promise you will love it!

The Artground, A Curious Place To Be

I am always on the lookout for children-friendly places that are fun, not too crowded and do not cost too much (because it adds up quickly with three kids!). Trust me when I say there are not many places in Singapore that fit the bill!

We received an invite from a secondary school friend of mine, Luanne (whose title is the Chief Worm, haha), to check out The Artground which recently opened at Goodman Arts Centre.

Essentially an open play space for children aged 12 and under, The Artground aims to provide positive arts experiences across a variety of art forms.

Throughout the year, there will be interactive art installations which provide non-directive play opportunities for children to discover and practice their motor skills. And the best part, entry to The Artground is completely FREE!

Upon arrival, my gleeful boys plunged themselves headlong into the engaging  playscape.

Created by local artist Poh Ya See, Down The Rabbit Hole is the current interactive visual arts exhibition that invites you to hop, skip, climb and crawl to explore the world of animals that live underground. Meet some unexpected furry friends, amazing insects and tiny little creatures that call the area under our feet home as you make your way through the installation.

The children could clamber through tunnels, doodle with chalk on the walls, thread pool noodles through a grid network of holes, cuddle up with giant plush snakes, run through a blue ocean and a forest with twinkly lights… it was tons of fun!

Luanne shared that The Artground hopes to provide a platform for emerging local artists to showcase their work. I thought it was such a wonderful initiative!

I love that the installation encourages creativity and open-ended play so the children were free to climb, run around, explore and just play. There are no ‘Do not touch’ signs nor are there any time limit for play. Our local museums really should take a leaf from them!

The place is airconditioned and very spacious. I think it would be the perfect destination on hot or rainy days, perfect for playdates or even for stay-at-home mums to bring the children on weekday mornings! Parents can just chill out on the beanbags while the children run amok 🙂

There is also a craft corner filled with bags of recycled materials which children can help themselves to, as well as a quiet reading corner.

Here’s a video snippet of the place if you are keen:

Come Saturdays and Sundays, Weekends at The Artground offers age-specific drop-in programmes that families with young children can engage in together. These include gardening, performing arts (music, dance/movement & drama) as well as arts & craft activities.

Each programme will be charged at $10 per parent-child pair. You can purchase a single ticket, TAG cards for 5 or 10 + 1 sessions at $50 and $100 respectively at the reception.

We tried out the Arty Crafty – Happy Funny Fishes class (for 4 to 7 year olds) where the boys learnt how to make colourful number-patterned fish using paper plates. Here’s what’s on for the weekend of 23 and 24 September.

Before we left, we also made sure we checked out The Good Garden, a children’s urban food garden initiative by Cultivate Central for The Artground.

The Good Garden is a whimsical food garden that will nurture a sense of what it means to connect with nature and help things grow. We sniffed at the herb patch and admired the airplants, crawling vines and even the most plump baby brinjals. We also spied compost pits and self-watering devices made from recycled materials.

Such a lovely green space – I would love to bring the boys back to attend the weekend gardening workshops!

The Artground is a lovely space where families can feel at ease to come to, to spend some time, to discover, to learn and to be curious. We had a really good time and will definitely be back!

Of dinosaurs and pschedelic animals at Artgrain

I would love to sign my boys up for regular art lessons (coz this Mama loves art) but they are busy enough as it is. So I have figured the next best thing is, sending them for holiday art classes. Which works out great because they see art as a recreational activity rather than something they have to do every week.

This September holidays, we tried out Artgrain for the first time ever. It has been around in our neighbourhood – we walk past it all the time and it is always packed with students. It was a 3-day art workshop (3 hours each day). Ryan did Jurassic Art – he shaped two dinosaurs out of clay and painted a prehistoric landscape for them. Sean did Psychedelic Animals where he painted zebras (my favourite animals!) in fun, quirky colours. I would have loved to see them in action but didn’t have the chance as I was at work 🙁

I thought Sean’s final masterpiece was really quite stunning! Definitely earned a deserving spot on my walls. The boys told me they had fun. Maybe we will be back next holidays!

Just Fly It!

How was your September holidays?

As a last hurrah before school reopened, we cycled to Bishan Park for MacDonald’s breakfast, much to the boys’ delight. A rare treat because our weekend mornings are usually packed with classes!

Then we attended a Parent-Child Chuck Glider Workshop with Singapore’s largest enrichment programme provider offering aerospace-related programmes, Just Fly It.

Designed for children aged 5 and above, parent-child pairs will work together to design and build a glider from scratch and be able to fly our very own model plane.

Captain Joyce who has 13 years of aeromodelling experience under her belt gave us a good technical rundown to the parts of a plane and their significance. I will readily admit I have zero clue about planes but I felt like I learnt so much in one hour!

Then the fun part: making our very own model planes.

We were taught how the different parts of the plane should be shaped from balsa wood and fit together. Sean relished being able to design his own plane while the younger kids helped to decorate the plane 😉

It was a bit tricky, especially working with penknives and superglue (I really would not recommend it for younger children) but I liked that we were applying STEM techniques and it was all very hands-on. There is really a lot to consider when designing a plane!

Everything came together quite nicely in the end. Loved seeing everyone’s completed planes together!

Finally, we could take our planes to Bishan Park for a test run. Joyce gave us a final ‘secret ingredient’ to make our planes fly better and sure enough, they did! We had a fun time whizzing our planes around – okay our planes need a bit of tweaking still, haha!

Thanks for a fun morning, Just Fly It!

If you are keen on joining the Parent-Child Chuck Glider Workshop, here is the Chuck Glider Workshop Fact Sheet. It is $45 for each parent-child pair. Really makes for a fun family bonding activity – I would highly recommend it for primary school going children!

Review: Jujube Tokidoki Seapunk BFF diaper bag from Agape Babies

Whenever I go out with the kids, I always make sure we have all our essentials with us. That includes water bottles, a change of clothes, wet wipes, snacks/gummies, bug spray, comics and activity books for the kids. This, on top of my wallet, camera, sunnies, keys and phone.

I am always hard pressed to find a backpack – I always choose them over sling bags so I can have my hands free – that can fit everything in nicely and look good at the same time.

So I was really thrilled my new Jujube Tokidoki Seapunk BFF diaper bag (RRP: $219) from Agape Babies checks all the boxes!

If you have used Jujube bags before, you will know their bags are thoughtfully designed for busy parents and impeccably made with sturdy quality finishing. I really wish I had discovered them sooner!

I couldn’t resist getting it in the retro BFF backpack design and the vibrant signature Tokidoki print which opens up to a chic pink interior. The light coloured lining makes it easy to see what is in the bag.

Few features I really liked:

  • The bag is very roomy and can hold all our things easily with room to spare.
  • There are side pockets for water bottles (good for ever thirsty children) and many internal compartments, pockets and even a retractable key hook to keep everything organised.
  • The bag comes with AgION Antimicrobial Linings which kills germs, mold, mildew, fungus and bacteria.
  • It comes with quality finishing like quiet magnets, metal hardware and really smooooth zips. You just know it will last for years.
  • Best of all, the bag is made of Teflon fabric protector which repels stains and is completely machine-washable. 

Seriously, why did I not discover this bag sooner?!

As you can see in the pics above, you can pretty much carry the BFF any way you want because it comes with detachable shoulder straps and messenger straps!

Definitely a handy bag that will see a lot of use in our household! You can find the new Jujube Tokidoki SeaPunk range online at Agape Babies. (PS. You can get $10 off every $200 purchase with the code 10OFF)

Disclaimer: I received this Jujube bag for the purpose of this review. No monetary compensation was received. The pleasure was all mine, and all opinions are my own.
