Clip 'n Climb at Our Tampines Hub - Rock and wall climbing for the family.

This evening, our plan to visit Gardens by the Bay was foiled by wet weather, so we made a last minute decision to go to the all new Our Tampines Hub instead.

My objective was to find an activity were all of us young & old can participate, unlike the usual children-centred indoor playgrounds where adults had to sit out the fun for the few hours, therefore Clip 'n Climb seemed like a good choice.
About clip 'n Climb Singapore:

HomeTeamNS is the first to bring in the New Zealand born Clip 'n Climb into Singapore.
It is an action-packed revolutionalized climbing theme park catered for climbers for all ages*.
The facility features 19 exciting, colourful climbing challenges with different levels of difficulties for all levels of climbers.

* Children should be at least 10kg to climb.

At the entrance, we were contemplating whether to take up the Savers package which entitled us to 10 climbs, or to just pay ala carte.
The female staff at the reception was so kind to let us go in to play first, and said if our children enjoyed the activity, then we could decide to sign up for the Savers package.
Kudos to her, such flexible and accomodating service employees are few and far between!
Lockers are available for use free-of-charge.

Armed with just my camera, we are ready to Rock!

Be sure to dress in comfortable attire and covered / sports shoes.

There will be guides around the facility who will help you with tightening the harness and teaching you the right way to securing the carabiners.

Before you climb, shout "Check me!" for the instructors to check that you are properly fastened.
And before you descend, make sure there is nobody below you and shout "Watch out!"

The number of clicks indicate the level of difficulty.

This is my favourite station! It allows your partner to climb in tandem with you.
In my case, it serves as a motivation to our children to keep going.

None of us reached the peak I must confess. But I am proud of Adam and Ashton for being game enough to attempt climbing all the stations, YES even the most difficult ones!
Benefits of rock-climbing include improving physical and mental endurance, and for us, it is just important that our children challenge themselves and be an improved version of themselves at the end of the experience.

The boys had immediately spotted the Laser Quest facility upon our arrival, which was just next to Clip & Climb, and said they would go for Laser Quest the next visit :)

*Safe for 8yo and above or minimu height 1.1m.

Phuket November 2016 - Holiday Inn Resort and Patong Beach.

Why, hello, Blogpsphere! It's been some time since I last posted.

I've been so busy with Adam's primary school shenanigans and also with our parrots. The only times I come in here is to search for past posts of our kids/ memories.
You can catch more of us on my Instagram account, @mumzillaveron.

Anyway, here's one post about our recent weekend Phuket trip.
Vacationing with your children on a weekend is doable!
You don't need annual leave or a lot of $$ to have some family fun.

We're booked to go to Korea in December, but due to some spontaeneous decision, we ended up going to Phuket with my in-laws first. We've visited Phuket with the kids last year (2015) and stayed at Clubmed, and this time we gave Holiday Inn a try.

To my pleasant surprise, Holiday Inn far exceeded my expectations in terms of being kid-friendly, family-centred and clean. My in-laws also enjoyed their stay. Thumbs up! :)


Family room with a kids room costs SGD$300 per night.
A normal room with 1 King sized bed or 2 Twin beds costs SGD$160/night.
Our spawns have a joining room connecting to ours so we can be left to our own (adult) devices.
I can finally take use the bathroom without an audience!

Are my kids' room awesome or what! I wanna bunk with them!
Just kidding. Please leave me alone.

There's even a treasure chest with toys. Very pirate-themed to the max.

Kiddy toiletries - they really pay attention to the details :)

Adam's favourite Big Boy activity - gaming.


At Kids Club, where you can park your children, from 9am - 5pm daily.
There are extended hours on certain days, so you can plan your adult activities.
Children below 5 need an accompanying adult, which is the only disadvantage if you are planning some snorkelling/ diving trip and you have a child below 5yo.


There are 2 children pools beside the Kids Club and 1 adult pool.


 is just a stone's throwaway from Holiday Inn.

In contrast with Singapore's erratic, mostly wet weather, Phuket is just heavenly.

  Don't spend your weekdays waiting for the weekends, because your time is now.
There is no better time than now to be silly, be crazy, be yourself, and be happy!
Hope you enjoyed the photos.

Will upload the rest when I have time :)
