Mother's day is just round the corner.

The boys decided to bring Mommy out for dinner at Fish & Co iconic Glass House@ Park Mall for a special Mother's day special feast. The venue was selected  because we heard that it will probably be the last time we can celebrate Mother's day there as it was slanted for closure  this coming June.

May Day (Long weekend) activities for the families



May day long weekend is around the corner.
Since it is a long weekend, let's not waste it especially when there are activities to do and places to discover. Kids will probably be using this time to prepare for exams, but a day break from the rat race will be welcoming for both kids and adults alike.
May Day may be known as labour day, but we would rather play than labour anyday!

Heard of the latest attraction for kids in town?

If you had ever fancied operating one of the cranes you had seen around construction sites, you or rather your child can have a chance to have a go at it at Diggersite @ East Coast Park.

PSLE Changes : Changes and concerns





I had just attended my son's education merit award ceremony and it had got me thinking about the primary school system. Primary school is the foundation of a person's learning abilities and there had been constant debates about the current system. PSLE scoring system had been a point of contention and a source of stress for both students and parents. In reality, having a primary school going child will usually mean not enough time for both parents and students on a daily basis. Add the stress of PSLE, the pressures intensify.
