by admin on December 1, 2014

My kids are waterbabies. It’s hard not to be here in Singapore when swimming is such a big part of everyday life. Thanks to Ariel, they are also both wannabe mermaids. They dream of having tails they can swish and living in an underwater fantasy world.

Wait until they see these Mahina MerFins. [click to continue…]

I was recently invited along to Cavalia (pronounced Cav-ar-lia) for its social media night. Cavalia originates from Canada and was created by Normand Latourelle, one of the co-founders of the world-famous Cirque du Soleil. It is billed as an epic adventure, a fantastic demonstration of horsemanship that transports the audience into virtual environments.
 
There are 50 horses and 46 performers in the production, which takes place under a vast white canvas tent that looks like it’s come from a fairytale. [click to continue…]

Saving sea turtles in Bali’s party town

September 6, 2014

The concept: A 3D trick art attraction from Korea featuring 70 artworks that use optical illusions to make visitors seem […]

21stCM recommends: Jamie’s Italian, Vivo City

May 23, 2014

  We went for lunch at Jamie’s Italian at Vivo the other weekend. I’d been avoiding it as I’m not a fan of dining in malls and I expected it to be yet another over-priced, over-rated “celebrity chef by name only” restaurant. BUT, we happened to be in Vivo as we were going to Build-a-Bear […]

Review: Lonely Planet World Search Books for kids

March 4, 2014

It’s World Book Day on Friday. At Tanglin Trust School, children are being encouraged to dress up as characters from their favourite books – all for a good cause – to raise money for Book Aid International. Miss C wants to go as Little Red Riding Hood (if I can only find a hoaded cloak). […]

Find of the week: Feroza summer blankets for kids

December 2, 2013

  I’ve been on the hunt for a stylish cover for Baby C’s cot as she ditched her sleeping bag (a long time ago). As we don’t put the aircon on in her room at night, the temperature is over 25°C so she needs something light. I spotted these absolutely gorgeous Indian summer blankets (Dohars) […]

The videos […]
