A Memorable 7th Tag Team Birthday Party

A little busy. Yet extra special. This sums up our exciting week!

This week 27 Aug 2016 it’s Lil M’s seventh birthday party and we are so excited to be sharing it with you.

Birthdays are not always a big celebration in our family. For our girls, one big birthday party during Kindergarten(K1/K2) & another big one in Primary 1. Alright, at least for now. We want our girls to look back on the photos and remember those special moments. This year Lil M wanted her birthday party to be held at a location where it’s big enough to invite her whole class, kindy friends (whom she missed), school mates…(Omg!) and she is able to Run with her friends, play/challenge and it’s not ‘babylish’.  We scouted the whole of east area, literally looking high and low for a venue that is fun for both boys and girls (inviting the whole class, party cannot be too girly) and narrowed on Tag Team@ECP.

The Red House Katong: Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique

Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique doesn’t fail to impress. This newly-opened gelato boutique seems to draw a constant stream of customers in the little space of 20 mins we were there. Perhaps it is due to its strategic location (right under the overhead bridge linking between The Red House and Roxy Square). Curious onlookers would step into the boutique and ended up purchasing their favourite gelatos. Continue reading “The Red House Katong: Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique”

East Coast Road: 227 Katong Durian

It’s the peak season for durian again. If you are not aware, the typical season for durian feasting occurs between June to August. The supply of durians this year seem to be better than last year. Over in social media, we saw Kampung durians selling for as cheap as $2 each over in Chong Pang market. How I wish there is such a sale over in Katong! Well, it doesn’t make any economic sense to travel from the far east to the north just to taste the $2 durians. We will make do over here at 227 Katong Durian located at East Coast Road.
