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.

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!

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 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 attracti
