The Animal Resort Singapore Review

Brought sticky bean, now 2.5yrs to The Animal Resort located at Seletar Farmway over the long weekend Saturday.
Seletar West sounds really far from where we reside but in actual fact, it's actually near Jln Kayu and if you're driving, you can exit from Yio Chu Kang exit via CTE. So it took us 15 mins car ride to reach the resort.

It's a small resort and will take you a max of 1.5 hours to explore so don't expect to spend a day there or you'll be disappointed for sure.
The Animal Resort is basically some sort of mini farm where you get to feed the animals and admission is FREE!
They have a horse, some guinea pigs and rabbits, ducks, roosters, hens, fishes, peacocks and some birds, turkeys and 2 enormous birds. (apparently one of the birds was donated by the Bird park).

As it was the Saturday of a long weekend, it was pretty pack when we arrived. The car park lots within the resort were full so we have to park along the road outside.
The Animal Resort opens from 10 am to 5pm. We got there around 10:45am.


A very excited sticky bean @ 2.5yrs

You can purchase animal feeds at a really reasonable price of $1 per pack or $2 for 3 types of animal feeds. Mr. Keir bought $2 for feed for the two legged (birds) , fishes and 4 legged (guinea pigs/rabbits)
Not sure if it was due to the crowd before us, the animals were not hungry at all so most of them did not respond to the food offered to them.
Sticky bean was disappointed after a few failed attempts, insisting that the rabbit must eat the carrot she's feeding them with.

Eat carrot! Rabbit eat CARROT!!!!


Another attempt to get the duck to eat from her hands

how about this then? Would you like to eat?
This brave girl ain't afraid of the animals at all. In fact, she ain't afraid of most things and we still wonder if that's something good or bad.

Well and so most of the animals ain't responsive to food and she was disappointed that she can't feed them, she got bored of trying to feed the animals pretty soon.
Instead, she spent the next 10 - 15 mins having fun with the swing.


this is nice and nostalgic, even mummy had fun sitting on it


And the next couple of minutes playing with the play structures there.



And then she saw a pair of children feeding the fishes at the huge pond right at the end of the resort and the daddy of the children was nice enough to offer Stick Bean some bread so she can feed the fishes too.


I'm not sure if she enjoys feeding the fishes or merely enjoy throwing things in the pond since it's mostly just fry(s) which means you can't even see the fish surface and gobble down the bread but tiny ripples were formed as the fry devour the bread crumbs.
We tried to feed the fishes at the smaller ponds earlier but nah, no response from the fishes, everyone was too full to be bothered with any food thrown at them

Just then, the peacocks in their enclosure decided to show off their beautiful feathers and we hurried over.


Alright, it's a challenge trying to get her to stop moving and pose for a photo but this is the best shot. lol

One of the gems found at The Animal Resort is definitely this 20 cents kiddy ride! OMG where else can you still find a 20cents kiddy ride? It's minimally $1 even at neighbourhood areas.


And yes it works with music and all!

And so Sticky Bean spent her last 15 mins at The Animal Resort playing on the platform where there is a growing up slide, a see saw and little tikes car. 

Overall the place is really kids friendly with the swings and mini play area for children. But as highlighted you will probably spend a maximum of 1.5 hours at The Animal Resort as it is not a huge place.
Given that admission is FREE and the animal feeds were reasonably priced, it's worth the trip there. We may want to visit again on a hopefully not so crowded day and hope that the animals will be hungry enough to be fed then.

Our 7 Day 6 Nights Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary Preview

Here's a preview of our Taiwan Child Friendly Itinerary for our trip to Taiwan earlier this month in May 2017. You can click on the respective days for a detailed post.

And so we finally embarked on our journey to Taiwan onboard Singapore Airlines! Thanks to Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promo, we decided to splurge a little on the air tickets. The air tickets cost about $1,440 for 2 adults and 1 3.5 yr old.


We spent a total of 7 days 6 nights in Taiwan altogether. But in order to make our Taiwan trip more child-friendly, relaxing,  and to cut down on travelling time, we merely visited the North part of Taiwan primarily - Hsinchu, Yilan and Taipei.

It's never easy travelling with a young one, hence we should not be too ambitious when it comes to planning your Taiwan Child Friendly itinerary. Good thing is, Mr Keir and I have always preferred a chillax itinerary. We're not the type of tourist who loves to jam pack the full day and visit 101 attractions in a trip.

We engag…

The Miscarriage: : the Mini Confinement after Miscarriage

When it comes to confinement following a miscarriage, there are 101 versions of old wives tales to confuse you.
There're people who say (such as doctors and gynaes), since the pregnancy period is short, less than 3 months, it didn't affect our body much so we actually do not need to do confinement.
But my gynae did mention that of course i can try to avoid the cold, icy stuffs still.

And then there will be the extreme ones who'd think going through a miscarriage is more damaging to a woman's body than giving birth itself and hence one must observe the rules of confinement and the best is to do it for 2 weeks.
But think about this, where on earth to get 2 weeks mc? we are only entitled 14 days mc a year leh...

And then there's the reasonable ones and I'm blessed that both my mother and mother-in-law and even my brother's mother-in-law, who runs a chinese medical hall (TCM) belongs to this group.
So naturally, i fall into this group as well.
According to TCM …

Taiwan Kids friendly Accommodation with slides - not your usual list!

And so from a mere idea of bringing Sticky Bean with us to Taiwan, this idea was put into action with Singapore Airlines 70th Anniversary promotion where you get to pay only $70 for a child's ticket! Though it's not exactly the cheapest option for flying to Taiwan, we thought to pay a little more for better service and not to mention safety since it will be Sticky Bean's first time traveling on a relatively longer flight. Her first plane ride was a really short one to KL, a mere 1 hour away.

If she's manageable on the flight, we can then consider budget airlines such as Scoot or even Jetstar for our subsequent travels.

So why Taiwan?
There are plenty of reasons for our choice other than both Mr. Keir and myself love Taiwan for the food and hospitality. I'm sure you may have come across Awesome kids friendly accommodation with slides and other themed rooms in Taiwan that are trending in facebook. That was one of the many reasons why we want to go Taiwan too!

Alright …
