Singapore's largest thematic outdoor playground - Westgate Wonderland !

It's officially opened on the 26th February 2014 ! Westgate, the first family-friendly mall in Singapore, with the largest thematic outdoor playground. Not only families get to have a great time spending a day of shopping & dining at the mall, young shoppers can now expand their energy at Westgate Wonderland, located on Level 4 of the mall.


Westgate Wonderland with a larger-than-life garden theme, featuring both dry and wet play areas. Definitely a great place for the young shoppers to have hours of fun there and it's open to public for FREE, daily from 10 am - 10 pm.

Be welcomed by the huge and brightly coloured displays in the playground ! Let the pictures do the talking !




 
 
  
We walked further in and spotted this really pretty caterpillar in vibrant, rainbow colours !


Together with the boys, Vera took her seat in the rounded pumpkin !

Walltopia - great for kids like Xav who loves rock climbing ! Ever since his first rock climbing experience at The Rock School, he has been looking forward for more !


He went on further and this time, to conquer the Tree House !




Swiftly, as he made his way up, I couldn't chase after him at all as my jeans hindered my movement but Xav was just having an awesome time, swinging like Tarzen



and sliding down the slides.
 

There is another playground that can be linked from the Tree House.

Imagining to be a fire fighter here !!



Posing among the leaves !

Take a seat on the toadstools right in front of the playground if you need to have a break !


He found more resting stools around in the form of acorns,


tree stump, which reminded him of a story "The Giving Tree" by  Shel Silverstein

 
You can find more benches under the shade of these huge flowers. I would feel that it would be perfect if they could install fans with cooling mists as well.


We moved on to the giant flower pot but uh-oh !

The flower pot's cracked ......



 
 


How cool was it that within the cracked pot, it's another playground ! He's duper happy when he could "stand" on me on this see through panel.
 

 
The interior of the  cracked flower pot contained so much fun !

Remember your wet gears too ! There is a water play area for the little ones as well !



After all the fun, be assured that there is a shower room on the same level for the kids and of course for mummies with babies, do check out their spacious Baby Room, with three or four nursing rooms and changing station available as well as a water dispensing machine for hot / cold water.

So how did the concepts of retail shops in shopping malls come about ? Thanks to the Leasing Managers who planned right from the start to executing their plans ! Here's a short clip shared by Ms Cheryl, Leasing Manager of CapitaLand Mall Asia. Westgate was the project she took under her wing !

Thank you Cheryl & Esther for the fun !
 



Here's a short clip on Westgate Wonderland and Westgate Kids Club ! Enjoy !
Westgate is located at : 3 Gateway Drive s608532. Nearest MRT will be Jurong East.

Xav started with the Treasure Map given to him, getting himself a stamp after he had completed the various stations.

The completed Treasure Map


Feed the hungry Pumbaa ! Xav attempted a few times and managed to give Pumbaa a satisfying meal ! Burrrrp !

Feed the hungry Pumbaa !!

Second station he went to was The Wheel of Destiny. Guess which character was picked !

Taking up the challenge by spinning The Wheel of Destiny !

 He tried his best to answer all the questions relating to Toy Story! Not too bad an attempt !


Third station, was a round of memory game at Jolly Jumble. All he did was to match the Disney characters with their friends within the given time frame.

There were other activities like colouring, where you can even submit your completed piece and stand to win some prizes !

Gazed ourselves in the Mystical Mirrors and we had a good laugh seeing our new images !


Meet Mickey for a photoshoot ! Who wouldn't love it ! Even the adults love it ! Yes, not only Xav was excited by giving it a big hug when he saw Mickey, it was Vera's first time meeting Mickey !

Steamed Tofu with Minced Meat & Crabmeat

A rare Thursday afternoon whereby I can produce three dishes for lunch. Seriously rare because I hardly have time to cook when I have to watch Vera like a hawk to prevent her rom scratching her eczema affected arms.

I made a quick marketing, carrying Vera with me and found some frozen crabmeat sticks and a box of beancurd. Hence, I decided to cook steamed tofu with minced meat (Read on for method), steamed red grouper and fried onion omelette for lunch.


I sliced the box of tofu into half and cut into squares. Should anyone of you can provide me with a tip on how to remove the tofu from the box without breaking it. Mine was bad !

Anyway, I managed to get a few decent looking, square pieces.

I marinated the mince meat with cornflour and Knorr Chicken Powder and dash of sesame oil. I added the diced crabmeat stick and one egg white to the minced meat.

Top the beancurd squares with the mixture and add one wolfberry to it for a nicer presentation.

I drizzled some Black bean soy sauce paste over, steamed it for about 10 mins under high heat and served.


A quick fix in less than 15 mins for the busy mamas !

{Review + Giveaway + Promotion} Inflatable Baby Bathtub

Making each bath session enjoyable with a splash or two, without any bumps and knocks against the traditional red bathtub (I got mine during my wedding and yes, I have another one given by Mt Alvernia Hospital) is possible with the Inflatable Baby Bathtub from Tiny.Tots, suitable for newborn up to the age of One.

Vera is growing taller ! Her height has increased such that she is outgrowing the current bathtub  anytime ! Each time, she kicked and straightened her legs in the tub, I have to be mindful that the top of her head would not hit the tub plus, the tub is so slippery that I have to buy a anti-slip mat from IKEA.

The problem is solved when Tiny.Tots sent us an Inflatable Bathtub, ingeniously designed in Japan ! No hard knocks and no fear of having baby slipped and fall under the water ! The base of the tub in segments and protruded rounded part in the middle prevents baby from slipping forward. When your little bud grows and is able to sit up without support, you can choose not to inflate the rounded area and continue to use the tub as per norm.


The underside of the bathtub

Safety feature of the tub; simple fill water up to the MAX indicator. 


See how Vera is making herself comfy ! Look mummy, you don't need to hold me ok, I'll just hold by the wall of the tub ! The inflatable bathtub comes with a headrest too ! Just lean back. =)




when you are done with it, simply just hang it up using a wall hook through the opening found at the base of the bathtub.



Still thinking of what to grab for your friend's baby shower, this would make a special baby shower gift or if you would want to add into your diaper cake ! Or should you be finding something light weight enough to bring for your overseas trip and say goodbye to knocks, replace this for home use !! After you have decided not to use it anymore, just deflate and keep it in the storeroom.

Time for a CNY Giveaway by Tiny.tots ! Check out the details below.
