National Gallery Children’s Biennale 2017

We popped down to the Children’s Biennale (pronounced ‘bee-nah-lay’) on a weekday recently. It was really impressive! Firstly, I’d recommend getting the activity pack – for $5 you get a rainbow pencil (the kind that already costs $5 or something insane like that at Smiggle), a very cool kid-sized tag and lanyard, activity sheets for the various exhibitions, and a sticker… Read more →

Kaboodle at Katong Square!

The kids were sooooooooo excited to visit Kaboodle at its new premises! They just opened in end-April 2017 at Katong Square with much more space and interesting new activities (more on that later).

It’s location is superb, with eateries galore along the seafront promenade, and convenient transportation available nearby for both land and sea. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival, and the… Read more →

Kidzania Singapore (Part 1) – strategy, strategy, strategy

School’s almost done! So on an ‘admin day’ (read: random weekday school holiday), we headed down to Kidzania, hoping to avoid the crazy crowds that are de rigour during weekends, public holidays and school holidays (what does that leave us with, seriously?). What was the crowd situation like? Read on for more details and ‘analysis’ throughout the post. My take… Read more →
