Thinking of where to bring your kids during the school holiday? Try Jacobs Ballas Children’s Garden, the first Asia children garden. It is located within Botanic Garden and is dedicated to all children of Singapore. Few weeks back, we brought Mal to the garden. He especially loves the playhouse tree with ropes to climb and slides that look rather challenging. A good place to bring your little ones if you are sick of the bustling city. Also a good way to let them learn about plants in a more interactive way.
all about how plants make food
a lot of effort has been put in to make the garden looks and feels natural, take for example this wooden log bridge.
and the cave with waterfall
long long ago when people cannot afford flower pots…

his favourite playhouse tree
heelllllooooooo, anybody there???
here I come
this was the fun part, even Mummy was excited, a little suspension bridge.
Mal mustered a lot of courage to walk on his own
Splash parks are getting popular in Singapore. After th long walk around the garden, Mal was happy to get himself all wet. He no longer complained about how small and little the water sprays were.
We love hanging out at East Coast during weekends. Last weekend, we found a new activity to do at the beach. Fly kite! Mal tried flying layang (malay for kite) for the first time. Thanks ?? for the kite. Tugging at the string was easy for Mal. It was more hard work for Uncle Eddy who was picking and throwing the kite each time it hits the ground 🙂
what a pose!
Halloween is over and since we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving. We decided to put up the christmas tree as soon as Halloween was over. I was glad that the tree and ornaments still look presentable and intact after being left in the store room for the last 2 years. It was a small tree, much smaller than those we had when we were in US. Sparse leaves, no fresh pine smell, not real. Still, Mal was delighted and I am happy, cos this year, we can finally spend Christmas with our family.
(p/s : will miss the cold weather and the snow at Flagstaff though, guess Mal will too if I show him the video)
