NSRCC Chalet Review (yes, yet again!)

We had so much fun the last we went for a staycation at NSRCC for a family of 6 adults and 3 children, we decided to go back again!

You can read up on my first review here when we first had our staycation as a family at NSRCC chalet in Jan 2015. I shared most of the facilities, features and pros and cons in my previous post and won't be repeating them here.

Alright I'm doing a lot of back dating post now, tons to catch up. We actually went for our second staycation at NSRCC last October 2015. But we had such a pleasurable stay that I feel it's a must to do another review here.

This time round we invited our aunt to join us for the staycation as well so we had a total of 7 adults and 3 kids! Sticky bean loves spending time with her cousins, imagine the amount of fun she had during this staycation.

Again I must reiterate for a weekday rate of just $160 per night, this is one of the best price one can get for a chalet of this size. We love the spaciousness and relatively clean and 'new' furnishings.
Though they only provide 4 beds and rooms are pretty small but that problem is easily solved with the mattress rental.

Checking in is a breeze and any room service requirements are settled promptly as well.

Again, we paid extra for the unit near the swimming pool, this time round we booked into unit 40p.
Right next to the playground, perfect for the kiddos.

The parking lot is right in front of the unit. making unloading a breeze. There is a complimentary parking lot with every unit booked, you can purchase an additional full day parking within the chalet compound for a small amount of $10 a day. Limited to 1 additional lot per chalet unit only. So if you have more than 2 cars, then you probably have to park outside and walk in.

A welfie with mummy first, apparently Sticky Bean doesn't look too pleased, she can't wait to explore the place.

Chillaxing first on the comfy sofa and spacious living area

of course being Sticky Bean, she can't stay put for long, she just have to explore and climb all over the place. Love the dining area as well. Sticky bean climbed onto the chairs to get her piece of chocolate cake for teabreak.

and she decided to enjoy her ride as a pillion while savoring her piece of chocolate cake. This Skoot me seems like a good choice for us to bring along. It's a skooter and luggage in one. Kept the kids entertained for a while.

We were really lucky to enjoy the clear skies when we were there as it was the haze period and psi has been above 100 just before our staycation at NSRCC.
So it's time to hit the pool! This time round, they've done some renovations to the baby/ children's pool.
Remember the colourful tiles from our previous staycation at NSRCC here? They probably figured out with the loose tiles, it poses as a dangerous hazard for young children hence the tiles were all removed. Great job NSRCC!

The beautiful pool without the tiles..

Waterplay area

Love this shot capture by "yi-po". Usually we have limited shots of her playing by the pool as we'd be busy keeping and eye on her and following her around. Call us kiasu but it's better to be safe than sorry.

the toddlers love this mini fountain

This time round we specifically order and segregate enough food to BBQ on Day 1 and Day 2

 Blessed with a good 'chef' in the house

Granny helping to kebab whatever needs to be on the satay stick while the kiddos continue to play in the background.

The morning after....I've prepared a messy play with snow dough for the kids. Messy plays are perfect for chalets, the kiddos can play at the porch area and you can easily rinse off the mess.
Snow dough can be easily prepared mixing flour and baby oil or olive oil.

For some reasons, the kiddos prefer scooping the dough then molding it.

Shower after the messy play. Check out our family wear! Family this from Qoo10 at a reasonable price and material is soft and really comfy.

The air conditioned living room is really a bonus to have, in the hot afternoon we just chillax indoor  while the kids watch a bit of cartoon.

Playing peek-a-boo instead of tying to nap

I lost count of the number of times we hopped over to the playground since its literally just next to our unit!
 And then it's the kiddos' favourite! It's bubble time! This bubble machine produces and insane amount of bubbles. Definitely a steal. Mr. Keir got this from the Taka toy fair for $15.
Real gem!


Even Yi Po couldn't resist the bubbles and joined in the fun.

And so the evening ended with another round of BBQ. This time round we explored the bowling alley as we were given complimentary bowling session together with the NSRCC chalet rental. There is a small arcade beside the bowling alley so that kept the kiddos entertained for a short while whilst the adults bowl away...

We will definitely be back again. In fact if everyone's schedule allow, we would love to have our NSRCC chalet staycation as an annual affair! We won't mind if it's twice a year even!

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

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!

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
