Is Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences Malacca for you?

“Hotel stay here, good or bad for your vacation stay?”

In case you wish to know which hotel we stayed in Malacca, here’s the pretty new Swiss Garden Hotel & Residences, we did.

The interior of the hotel and its rooms was elegant, spacious and looked classy, with the reasonable room rate offered. There is also a large balcony in each guest room, for a view or breeze.

Bed in room was comfortable, and there is a 2-seater sofa as well as ‘see-through’ bath provided in the room. Not all rooms come with straight sofa seats, my parents’ room had the curvy seats which are unfit to lay flat down overnight. The hotel provides extra bedding at a reasonable rate, if third guest requires it. However, it’s really not necessary to pay for an extra bed for your young toddler who usually co-sleeps with you, even though the hotel booking websites stated so, as one of their terms & conditions.

“It’s never hard to imagine how little (or zero) margin they are prepared to compromise on their food hygiene, quality, and most of all, the customer service to the patrons of McDonald’s…”

Overnight Camping & Visit in Jurong Bird Park Singapore

“Sleeping with the Flamingos”

Hey! I told you that I went for a sleepover camp at Jurong Bird Park on one of the Fridays in December. Yes, pitching of tents for a night inside the park. However, don’t assume that it will surely an outdoor camping. Sad to say, it was not! We camped IN a air-conditioned function room by the flamingo lake. That’s the camping experience for our precious Singapore children! Wahaha..

Actually, I personally find it not a bad idea with an indoor camping as there will be no mosquito bite, need not to feel hot in the sleep.. All we had is cooling air in the tent in that ‘snory night’..

Family-Oriented Resort in Bali

“Fun-filled Bali Dynasty Resort in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia”

Just to share some personal photos of the resort I’ve stayed over for my week-long holiday in Bali, as promised to some readers who are interested to explore further and consider for their future stays in Bali.

Let me show you the Deluxe room which suitable for 2 -3 sharings. It’s spacious and well maintained. The wing we stayed was just completed renovation days ago. Guess we were lucky enough for enjoying the brand new room. *There are many other choices of room and suite types for bigger family/ group.

New Rainforest Kidzworld at Singapore Zoo

“New Opening of Rainforest Kidzworld and Boat Ride in Singapore Zoo”

We visited Singapore Zoo last Sunday, the actual day of Singapore National Day! Since it was a long weekend, we had to have some plan for the kid, at least an outing on the 3-day long weekend. And, as a form of celebration with the nation, we planned this outing (laughing), for a half morning visit, and to get home in time to watch the live National Day Parade on tv in the evening! There were plans in mind, whether to go Pulau Ubin for cycling or a visit to Jurong Bird Park (I have 50% discount on admission tickets), and etc, before decided on the zoo visit. But for several good reasons, I decided to have our family outing together with my good friend & family, for zoo visit and picnic, despite the fact that we had to pay full price tickets to the zoo on public holidays!

Children Season’s Holiday Programmes by Singapore National Museum

June (school) holiday is approaching!

If you are still racking your brain on which good places to bring your children to, for some fun and valuable visits throughout the 1-month break from school, I have some ideas here.

I brought my girl to the Singapore National Museum last year, not so much on touring the museum, but to attend some children themed holiday programmes organised by the authority. And, I attended also the free seminar on parenting there, while my girl had her drawing session just located outside the seminar hall.
