Can’t believe that we are moving into mid year in 2 weeks’ time. While time seems to fly for SAHMs when we have kids constantly around us, we believe it is happening equally fast for the FTWMs who spend week-long hours at the office rushing through work just to get home to be with the kids. No matter what, it’s time for indulgence and family bonding this coming June school holidays. To plan for the month-long break, we have consolidated 30 activities and workshops for you to consider. Whether your aim is to play madly with the kids, or to brush up on their skills, or just to chill with the nature, we believe we have captured it all. So do share the love with your friends and start scheduling your calendar now. Make the most out of it!
