How did we find honestbee, honestly? (plus a new Family Market link-up)

I have always wondered about honestbee but had never tried it since I live very near a great supermarket. (I’ve seen honestbee concierge folks darting about the supermarket loading items into their grocery basket though!) But precisely because I live within walking distance of the supermarket, we walk back with all our buys, which can be heavy and cumbersome, even… Read more →

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!

Shangri-la’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa (Part 1) – impeccable service, sprawling grounds, beautiful pools

We had a short staycation at Rasa Sentosa recently and it was such a good break from city life! We had heard so much about how kid-friendly it was, and our experience attests to it. One of the first hotels in Sentosa, Shangri-la’s Rasa Sentosa Resort & Spa was established in 1993. It underwent an extensive 10-month makeover in 2010,… Read more →
