Party Venue

I'm still deciding whether to have a birthday for the boys or not. More inclined on not. We will have the traditional cake cutting at their school but not sure if I want a real party for them. They probably won't enjoy it as they are too young. We also don't have much friends with kids. So I can't decide yet. But I'm scouting just in case last minute I change my mind.

I have so far inquired in the following:

Pororo Park

Official Website: http://www.pororoparksg.com

Cost: $66 for 2 adults and 2 kids

Seems like we can't get over Mamon's birthday haha. For his Birthday treat,

#1 I bought him a book. He looks books! Be it to eat them, flip them or destroy them.
#2 I bought him a big counting poster. He lovest posters.
#3 I made him skip afternoon school. That has got to be Mommeh's best gift right?
#4 I brought him and Paopao to the Pororo Park!

We arrived just in time for the sing along with Pororo. So we quickly rushed to the theatre. It was.. not a good idea. Lol. Darkness + Loud sound + Rush Feeling = Meltdown. In the end only Paopao and I watched it. Ate Meh and Mamon had to go out. Sad. Mamon loves Pororo songs. Wish they danced in a well lighted environment.

We went around after the Sing Along. There was a large ball pool. With a friendly shark which at first scared Paopao and later he wanted to feed it with chair. 😓



Toddlers and babies have a play area dedicated to them.


Ate Meh and I were more excited with the Pororo house than the boys.




Paopao had fun exploring the house.




Paopao spent a fair bit of good time in the grocery area.







The party area was open for some education playing since there was no party that day.




The giant bouncing area was a hit with the boys.



The cars were free. Paopao would have used a lot of $1 coins if they weren't. haha,


There were scheduled activities for kids but my boys were too young to join them. Not to mention that they aren't free.




Paopao's favorite area!


Even Mamon had fun.


Some brick games for the kids too


Mamon spent a lot of time in this area. Jumping and running around. Freedom!



Like Pororo's house, Ate Meh and I were more excited to let them ride the train rather than the boys actually wanting to. Paopao in fact cried all through the ride.


Characters are not the boys thing. But if you like picture taking, they got a lot in the play ground.


I had 2 rounds of 8 minutes massage in these chairs. No, they aren't free. lol.


 Pretty neat nursery room.


Mamon had some tv time in between playing.


The cafe seemed interesting but didn't get to try it as we were too busy playing.




The boys sure had fun at the Pororo Park but we probably won't visit for a while. It's too expensive apart from Mamon not being totally happy with the darkness while meeting Pororo and friends.

Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning.

School Birthday Party

Still on Mamon's 4th Birthday. The school allowed us to decorate!!! Yahoo.

For his school party, I got 4 rolls of Swiss Rolls from a bakery at the Admiralty Station. Good deal for the 2 rolls for $5. Tasted quite nice too.


then I baked these mini moist chocolate cupcakes.


Custaroons is the only thing (so far) that I can make with consistency. Lol. So it has to be there.


Taking into consideration that some are vegetarians. Some don't like sweet stuff. I decided to fry some Vegetable Cocktail Samosa and Veggie Spring Rolls.


Nuggets. You can never go wrong with chicken nuggets for kids.


I realized that throwing animal/safari themed party is no longer tough. Fair price sells these cute piggy red beans. They also have bunny version! How adorable.



We didn't know we could set up the lunch area so we were not prepared. Lolz. I didn't even bring forks or mini plates. 



We displayed our balloons. With Paopao doing the QA.



And here's our final look.


One of the luckiest things that can happen to you in life is, I think, to have a happy childhood.

Chic-a-Boo Fried Chicken

LocationMarina Square
Order3pc chicken upsized
Pax3
Total Cost~$9,80
Official Sitehttp://www.astons.com.sg/partners/chic-a-boo/
VERDICT
Note: 1 lower, 5 highest

Service💛💛
Taste💛💛💛💛
Cost💛💛💛💛 
Final Verdict👍
First of all, I made the decision to eat here before knowing it was also owned by Aston's. If I know if was, then I would have walked away.  Here's a little story, in front of this stall in Marina Square is Aston's. There was no note or warning that says you have to each other a meal. And usually we order 2 kids meal and an adult meal. Because the boys want their own meals and they can't finish it. Rudely we were rejected. Anyway, I don't like restaurants where you have to decide what to order standing.

Anyway, back to regular programming.

Service is certainly not Aston's best character in Marina Square.Although the cashier is nice, the waiter was amazingly rude. I asked how to know when to be called he stared at me like I'm a a dumb person then looking at the monitor above. Small monitor. My office monitor is so much bigger. :|

The chicken was so sad. My boys refused to eat. The muffin. Oh poor muffin.

Cheaters go to Hell

Sometimes you wonder... you are no longer fighting. You are no longer asking questions. Yet they continue to cheat on you. And pretend they aren't.


Excuses.

Late nights. Work.

Weekends. Work.

Multiple phones. Work.

Constant texting. Gosh. I'm almost laughing at home much effort you pretend to be not texting every time I pass by. I came to a point that I actually pity you.

Buying Milk tea out of the blue. Duh?

Here's what I have to say to cheaters.

I say there are just 2 things on cheaters.
1. They are scared.
2. They are selfish and want to keep you as backup in case the new one doesn't work.

Shoot. Come on. Make up your mind.

No matter how badly people treat you, never drop down to their level, just know you’re better and walk away.

Playground at Causeway Point


We headed to the North to pickup Mamon's cake. And to make time pass, we decided to visit the Causeway mall. The playground at Level 2 was a welcome surprise. 


Paopao shrieked with happiness as he saw the playground.


Not many kids were there so he had the time of his life.



View from the next floor.




I found a waterplay area at the roof top. Unfortunately, I didn't bring his swimwear. And we didn't have time.


But not to worry! We will be back to pickup Paopao's cake next month! And we will bring swimwear! haha



Time spent playing with children is never wasted.
