It’s the BIG School Holidays in 2015!

The school year is finally coming to a close!  After spending about 3.5 hrs/day, 17.5 hrs/week, 70 hrs/month or 700 hrs/10 months on the road using mixed transport system, I’m finally done with the year.  Oh GOSH!  These figures are estimated to include walking, bus, MRT and my driving time just to fetch and pick up the kids during school day.  No, it is not tiring and travel time is not an issue.  #likereal

Well, I am more excited than the kids that the year end school holiday is almost immediately coming.  Life has been busy, real tired but also at the same time fulfilling that I get to watch the kids grow up.  Before they grow up too fast, let’s check out what fun activities are in store for this year end holiday.

Visit The Last Remaining Kampong in Singapore ~ Kampong Buangkok

This has remained on my bucket list for an outing with the kids for more than a year.  Something would always excuse us from going, like haze or Dengue outbreak.  Perhaps this long holiday, there can be a chance to drop by for the kids to experience the real kampong life with chickens roaming freely and banana trees growing in the backyard of wooden houses.

How to go

Kampong Buangkok is located off Gerald Drive which is located off Yio Chu Kang Road.  The closest bus stop is along Yio Chu Kang Road, opposite Church of St. Vincent De Paul.  Bus Nos 70, 103 and 854 will service this bus stop.  There is a Shell Petrol Station nearby.  See map for details.

Discover A Hidden Gem in the Neighbourhood ~ Jalan Seleseh

Following a visit to Kampong Buangkok, have lunch at the Seletar Corner coffee shop at Jalan Seleseh.  Have your lunch at the Wanton Mee and Roti Prata stalls, spend the afternoon at the playground (Jalan Selaseh Park), have high-tea and gourmet ice cream at Bing Qi Lin and end the day with fulfilling local delights at the Western Food and Zi Char stall a try before you leave!   The quaint neighbourhood is about 1 bus stop away from Kampong Buangkok.  Read all about our recommendations here!

The Biggest Baby Bump Walk @ Family Extravaganza 2015

Organised by Parents World Singapore, this is a walk I would highly encourage all mummies-to-be to go for.  I was working on golf course construction project when I was pregnant with Jiejie.  Back then, I walked kilometres and kilometres on the greens on a daily basis.  All she took was just 3.5hrs to pop out.  Didi being the second child, took about 2hrs to deliver.  Yes, you have heard that walking helps with birth delivery and it is really true.
