The most chic playground in Singapore…

Kith Cafe playground

is this! Its a small play area at Kith cafe (Park Mall) with just 3 pieces of equipment that look more like swanky furniture than playground equipment but is incredibly fun for children.

The food isn’t bad either. Sophia and I both liked the “green eggs” which was scrambled eggs with pesto. It was also really great that the restaurant had a box full of lego-like pieces, building blocks and the like which entertained Sophia just long enough for me to finish my breakfast.

Kudos to kids friendly restaurants!

Finally a little bit brave

My timid girl FINALLY is willing to play on a slide all on her own. She climbed up both the baby slide and the slightly bigger slide on her own but only managed to slide down the smaller one. She got stuck on top of the taller one with her head in front and legs behind. Much to the alarm of another set of parents accompanying their slightly older daughter at the play area. They must have thought I was a completely irresponsible mum when I slowly strolled over to Sophia’s rescue. And for the first time ever, I heard a stranger tell me that my girl is very brave! She’s probably the most risk averse baby I have ever met so its really a surprising comment.


Pardon the scary hand at the edge of the first photo – I needed to snap fast!

It never fails to surprise me how Prive can market itself as a baby friendly place by just placing a couple of slides and a playhouse in a sunny corner. Most of the patrons there were parents with young children and the kids had a ball of a time with those simple facilities.

The only thing that could pull Sophia away from the play area was banana. After the first bite that I had to bring over to the playhouse for her, she followed me back to the table and kept right next to me chewing, swallowing a bite then quickly saying “some more ba-na-na!” until she finished all the banana. I tried to replace with some strawberries but she threw them on the floor. Strange preferences!

Wish Singapore’s weather were less humid so I can enjoy such places more. It did get quite uncomfortable by 11am. Sigh…

Strictly Pancakes

I like Strictly Pancakes the second time much better than I did the first time. This time we went upstairs and only then did I realise the set up on the second floor is so warm and cosy. No wonder so many families with children are there. Sophia clearly enjoys the ikea children chair. Look how she’s sitting like a little rowdy girl.

The food was not too bad as well. Not wow but nothing to complain about. I had pancakes with scrambled eggs and sauteed mushrooms. It all tasted very “clean”, fresh and not too salty. I felt very safe feeding it to Sophia.

Too bad the food took rather long to arrive, I have a suspicion that it has been written off by my friends. Sigh..
