RWS SEA Aquarium VIP Tour : Spooky Seas Edition

MEDIA INVITE


Halloween is just round the corner. It is time for the spooks to resurface on this day. This year Spooks takes to the high seas and invade RWS SEA Aquarium (SEAA). Initially I was worried if the theme would spook the Wackies , however when when the boys heard that they are on the way to a a Spooky adventure, they actually run their hands in glee. That did get me a little worried.

Fret not, this is not a scary or and gory review. The Spooky Seas edition is a family friendly Halloween experience and it is certified Kids Friendly for Halloween.

Learning through PLAY for preschool kids

SPONSORED REVIEW
Edutainment activities
If you have a preschool child at home, you might face this issue. How to teach a child who refuse to learn? 

I have 2 boys with very different attitude towards learning. The first is diligent and accepts his daily routine of revision and homework. The second is the complete opposite. Homework is a dirty word and he prefers to play than to sit still for 10 minutes to complete his ABC.

iPhone 6 Plus : Size comparison

 
iPhone 6 Plus

It's Thursday, so that means some time out for techie fun! iPhone 6 Plus was launched almost a month ago. After a long wait, it had finally landed in the household.

I was contemplating between the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. The decision was not an easy one given that iPhone 6 Plus was embroiled in Bendgate controversy. However given my previous phone was the Samsung S4, trading that in for a similar iPhone 6 seem a tad unnecessary. Thus my head was turned to the iPhone 6 Plus as it has a larger screen , runs on the reliable IOS system and has image stabilization for its camera. These extras does help especially when my eyesights are deteriorating due to age, I am an Andriod failure and I use the phone as a secondary camera.

Guide to Kid's Bank Account in Singapore

 
Since Big C has his own allowance when he started primary school, he had been diligently saving his excess pocket money in his piggy bank. After saving a decent amount, it is time for him to have his own bank account. This is also a perfect opportunity to introduce the world of banking to him.
