This year's activities would allow more time for the kids and I to do discussion and sharing more stories. I cannot promise that it'll be the same kind of fun in theme parks but I am sure it will leave them some fond memories to recollect some years down the road.
This has been an activity I have wanted to do for a while now. With this year being SG50 we have more reasons to learn about Singapore than before! We will begin with our own town and the surrounding towns around us. As I researched, I didn't realize there are so much information to gather about our estate here. In addition, I could add a few anecdotes of my own being a student in this vicinity in my primary and secondary school years.

Vacation Bible School 2015
This is the fourth year I am sending my kids to this program. It has proven to be a great program to put the kids in. Year-on-year the kids would request to go back to VBS and I have definitely no qualms signing them up (ppssst that means I'd have some me-time *smile*)
VBS runs on a different theme each year and this year, it's about Obedience to Jesus Christ! Which incidentally, is my one word focus for year 2015!!! (ok! I hear God loud and clear about keeping to my promise of obedience)
See more details about this program here. If you'd like to sign up too check out this link.

After our media invite at the National Museum for Masak Masak, we decided to take a short walk over to the Imaginarium at 8Q by Singapore Arts Museum. We were really in for great and fun surprises. The children had so much fun, they didn't want to go home! We really could spend the entire day here! If you are a Singapore citizen or a PR, you enter the Imaginarium for free! For more details check out their website here.

A word of caution though, there will be road diversion and closure on the 5th and 16th June due to the official opening and closing of the SEA Games. In addition, a huge crowd is expected to turn up on these 2 dates.
