Well, today, I am going to bring you on a stroll down Marine Parade. This is a place where I spent since my childhood, and I have very, very fond memories of this place!

First up, a very interesting fact: Marine Parade has its very own theme song.

I kid you not. For real!

I wanted to teach Jay the song, and then record him singing and uploading it on YouTube. Unfortunately, my usual songbird isn’t in a very compliant mood these days, so you just have to be contented with the lyrics:

We have been living in Pasir Ris for 12 years. From an Ang-Mo-Kio-en almost all my life, we decided to move and start our family in the far far east - it was a major move! 12 years ago, Pasir Ris was considered out of the way - 'ulu' if I may add. But really, we don't find it so. This is the place we love. This is the place parenthood began for us. Even if we decide to move house one day, I told the hubs, I still want to stay in Pasir Ris! And with the hubs frequent business travels, it is so easy commuting to the airport and saves us a lot of time.

My neighbourhood, where I spent most of my life until I got married. This space embodies every bit of my memory. I always love going back. It accompanied me through thick and thin, witnessed how I grew from a girl who crawled the drains with the boy next door, into a young lady who found love in a boy she knew for over twenty years. It will always be my home.

The neighbourhood I call home is not considered an old neighbourhood with great food, quaint cafes or laid back alcoves for relaxing. Smack in between of Holland and Bukit Timah, it is an extremely sought after neighbourhood, simply because of the branded schools nearby. Think of Nanyang Kindergarten, Nanyang Primary, Raffles Girls Primary, Chinese High, National Junior College and the like. You get what I mean.

When I agreed to do this post, I dated my Canon EOS where we spent an hour plus walking around and taking photos -discreetly- and having loads of fun together. Revisiting the place after 2 decades, memory floodgates were open and I smile when I remember snips and pieces of things that happened there so long ago.

Let’s begin the tour of my neighbourhood with the humble bowl of porridge.

Redhill is one of the oldest estates in Singapore. If you are able to reach early, you can start the day with the best porridge in town. Just a 5 minutes walk from Redhill MRT, this porridge stall at the Redhill food centre is known for its long snaking queues. The stall begins business at 5.30am and sells out by around 8.30am. No wonder it’s been called ‘the elusive Redhill porridge‘.

Usually, if we plan to go for breakfast, we would go for a quick jog around the park, then head there directly. There would be a sense of urgency in our footsteps, because we know what it’s like to get in line, wait, and then be told “sold out, sorry”.

If there is anything that Tiong Bahru is famous for, it's for their yummilicious food! People
from all over Singapore travel all the way here just to get their hands on freshly baked French baguette or traditional lor mee.


And I've been making a point to visit new cafes sprouting up all over the neighbourhood ever since my last exploration of the area.


So take a day tour with me as I show you the little gems in this town that I call home =)

Blog Feature: Loving My Spot in Singapore Series (Tampines)

Tampines ( say ‘Tam-Puh-Knees’) is the name of my neighbourhood. Its strange name is derived from the large forest of Tampines trees that used to be here, which is of course way before I ever lived here. Now it is the second largest commercial and residential area, after Jurong Lake, in Singapore.

I have lived here for more than 20 years, so of course I am biased when I say this is a truly amazing place to live! But if you really want to know why Tampines is one of the best in the world, what I think sets us above the other towns in Singapore is that our town actually has an international World Habitat Award from United Nations that says so.

Blog Feature: Home-made Play-Doh

Alicia fell sick over the weekend so she had to miss school today. To cheer her up, I decided to try something different with her and we made playdoh! I was really quite apprehensive as even though I've been reading quite a bit about making playdoh, it was a different thing trying to put the act together.

Nevertheless, I'm very glad that the recipe I worked with worked well, with some impromptu alterations as I made the playdoh:


Ingredients:
  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1/2 cup salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil

Blog Feature: Twins Survival Guide - Breastfeeding Twins

One of the most common question I get from “aunties” and other moms is, “You breastfed your twins? Is it even possible?”
So I decided to write this post to satisfy the curiosity of these people and offer some confidence boost to mothers expecting twins.

First off, breastfeeding twins, as daunting as this may sound, is kind of easy once you get the hang of it. I think it was much easier in the early months as I was able to have both latched onto me while walking around the house.

Blog Feature: A day at the Zoo!

Public holidays used to mean mornings spent sleeping in, leisurely brunches and movie outings. That is before kids come into the picture.

Now… it’s all about going to places to entertain the kiddos! I’ve always heard colleagues and friends lament about the lack of places to go to during the weekends. I think the cure for such boredom is to have a kid. Or two. Or if you’re really adventurous, three or more. There are so many places to bring the kids to, from indoor/outdoor/water playgrounds, art classes, music classes, and of course… the usual touristy stuff like going to the Zoo, Birdpark or Night Safari.

Blog Feature: 3 Birthday Parties for under S$100!

This year, Poppy had 3 birthday celebrations (yes, 3) - One mandatory one in school (the one that isn't compulsory but you know that if you don't do it, you will never hear the end of it because who wants to be the only kid without a school birthday party, right?), one big one at Road Safety Park, and one tiny one on the real day.

And in total, we spent less than $100.

Blog Feature: Fears About Motherhood. Fact or Fiction?

Evelyn writes at the bottomsup blog and is guest posting on MamaJ's blog, Mum in the Making.



"When I was pregnant with my second child last year, one of the books on my reading list was Lionel Shriver's "We Need To Talk About Kevin." Frankly I wouldn't recommend this as a read for anyone who's growing a baby in her belly, mostly because it was inspired by the Columbine high school massacre and has a similar storyline! But the book was not without its light-hearted moments, one of which featured a mom cataloguing the things she dreaded about becoming a parent. It was a list of 10, but these are the fears that I think would've resonated most with me before the kids came along.
