McDonald’s opens its kitchen doors to all

“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…”

Like what my header says, it’s now a great chance for you to discover the truth behind your favourite food at their Open Doors Event which happens every 3rd Sunday of the month, all the way till 19 Feb 2012.

This is not an advertorial ie I don’t get paid to promote this activity. It’s merely my interest to share this piece of information with you guys since I have attended one. It’s eye opening, it’s exclusive, and it’s informative!

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’..

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

We visited Singapore Zoo last Sunday which fell on the actual day of Singapore National Day. It was a long weekend, I had to have some activity plans for the kid, at least an outing for her on the 3-day long weekend. As a form of celebration with the nation, we decided to pay a visit to the Zoo in morning, and get home by afternoon so that we would be in time to watch the live National Day Parade on TV. We had our good friend & her family to join us, too.

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.

NATAS Travel Fair 2008 in Singapore Expo

“An annual NATAS Travel Fair which never missed by Singapore residents.”

We went to SG Expo this afternoon, for the NATAS (The National Association of Travel Agents Singapore) Travel Fair exhibition. It was the last day of NATAS Fair, and we wanted to check out the best deal for our vacation planning. This was my second time to NATAS Fair. It used to be located at Suntec City, but changed to Expo, perhaps to cater for bigger crowd.

I brought my little one there after her Phonics class. We hit the place with a hope for minimal crowd or entry queue, but gosh! Oh no… The chaos scene was just exactly like what the news had shown last evening! A snake line of queue to buy admission tickets! Yes, it was not free admission, and yet all desperate visitors were eagle to check out the best travel deals there, like me.
