East Coast Park Marine Cove Review

Finally brought sticky bean to East Coast Park for a picnic session with her cousins as well as to check out Marine Cove after hearing so many raves about this place.

The crowd seems to have died down, thankfully for us. Even if it gets crowded, there are ample spaces for kids to run around. The place is so spacious!

If you drive, be sure to park at carpark C2 or C3, nearest to Marine Cove.

I love how convenient the place is. Smacked in between 2 carparks with restaurants and cafes beside it. Most importantly, there are shower and changing facilities for children too!

So we decided to let the kids build sandcastles by the beach and have a simple picnic session before bringing them over to the play area at Marine Cove. Do you think the kiddos will still want to build sandcastle and stay put at our picnic mat if they start playing at Marine Cove play area? haha...

Sticky bean playing with the sand. She looked a little lost here, though. She can be a little OCD at times and doesn't like getting her hands dirty.

Little mats and stools like these are so useful for a picnic! Especially for adults if you have trouble squatting for too long.

And then we retreated back to the shady area where our belongings and picnic mat are.

Kiddos enjoying their nice cool ribena!

So the kiddos had fun playing with sand and water and enjoying a simple picnic, resting on the picnic mat.

After we washed them up and packed up, it's play time at Marine Cove Playground!

Unfortunately,  I didn't get to take proper snapshots of each area as I'm keeping an eye on Sticky Bean at the same time.

This is an enclosed play area with funny mirrors suitable for toddlers

Overview of the playground at Marine Cove. This seems to be more suitable for older kids though. It's pretty high up there and Sticky Bean got stuck while climbing halfway. Can be a little dangerous for kiddos below 4 years.

Again this slide look so fun! But sadly the only way to go up is to climb through the nettings, again, not so safe for children below 4 years of age so we didn't get to go up there.

This swing is perfect for toddlers and young children so you don't have to worry about them falling off the swing. The first time I came across such swings was at the outdoor playground at City Square Mall.

Slides and area more suitable for younger kids and toddlers too!

again, something fun for toddlers and younger kids.

This station is pretty cool. You can start the game and start going around and press the light up buttons. 

This must be Sticky Bean's favourite somehow.

The Marine Cove @ East Coast Park playground is really age inclusive. Definitely suitable for toddlers all the way to 12-year-old kiddos. I'll definitely be back again.

BTO Keys Collection and BTO Door Opening Ceremony

And so after a long 4 years wait, our BTO is finally ready for keys collection. To be honest we totally forgot about out BTO and was pleasantly surprised to receive an SMS from HDB to inform us of our BTO keys collection date. That was when we frantically tried to hunt for an ID. Ok to cut the story short, here's what happened on the BTO keys collection day as well as what we did for our "BTO Door Opening Ceremony". There really wasn't an official BTO door opening ritual or ceremony in fengshui. I guess this is just a Singapore custom. Though we do not have a religion, in particular, we just did it for an ease of mind. Love the  living room view from our 30th storey BTO view from our Service Yard BTO Key Collection Process at HDB Time took: less than an hour It was a very straightforward and easy process. Here's what you need to prepare, assuming that you are taking the loan from HDB. Identity cards Marriage certificate if you are buying

Our Muji Home Reno Journey | Electrical works and Aircon Trunking

Before embarking on our Muji Home renovation journey, I never knew that the bulk of the work comes from the electrical wiring and the importance of electrical works. In fact, we totally overlooked that part. How many sockets needed and where to place them. Before we selected our ID, we met one of them onsite and the ID just went on asking us how many sockets and lighting point we need in this room, where we need the socket to be located at ...bla bla bla all of these during our first on-site meeting. Trust us, we never had such a pressurising consultation before. Tips for you A lesson learnt from our experience, perhaps before you even meet your IDs or contractors, spend some time in your BTO and visualise how you want to use the space and place your furniture. For us, we thought we can come to that much later when the renovation is almost complete but boy we are so wrong about that. You should already know how many sockets you need and where you want it to be placed from the be

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
