Lands' End: Personalized school bags are here!

My firstborn, Adam, is going to Primary school next year.
My 2009 baby is so grown up *sobs*
We have been searching for a suitable school bag for him some time now, from the Japanese "randoseru" (ランドセル) in Tokyo, which the boy wore in the famous Doraemon cartoon, but it was around SGD$800 after currency conversion, to Deuter Scholar series bags, but they were very heavy even without anything in them.
In the end, upon some surfing, I saw Lands' End personalized bags.
 It was also very timely that Andy's cousin posted a photo of her son receiving his Lands' End bag from US.

They have several designs for girls as well!

To order your Lands' End personalized bags, head on to Lands' End website.
They ship direct to Singapore from US, with tracking number provided.

Farm-hopping Sunday: Kok Fah Vegetable farm weekend market and Farmart

In support of the Farm-to-table movement, we decided to go searching for places which has locally-grown edibles.
Today morning, the weather was great. We dropped Adam off at my parents' place in Woodlands (he wanted to do gaming with my brother) and headed right to Sungei Tengah for some farm-hopping.
First stop:
Kok Fah Technology Farm Pte Ltd
18 Sungei Tengah Road 698974
Tel:  67656629
Kok Fah Technology farm weekend market Singapore

Here, they sell flowers, gardening tools and accessories, and pots upon pots of flowers, vegetables and fruit - okra, eggplant, capsicum, chilli, guava.

Who'd have known nestled in the deep veins of Sungei Tengah Road would be this lively weekend market bustling with people and activity, and local farmers selling their produce?

I would never have guessed to buy vegetables and local produce here but when we arrived at 11am, the place was already crowded with many cars!

Support local farmers and produce. This way, you are not paying a CEO for his next vacation or holiday home, but helping small local businesses sustain their living.
Another thing I like about supporting local produce: zero air- or ship-time.
It's freshness at its best.

We bought a week's supply of Kai lan, corn, winter melon and old cucumber for our own consumption and for my Aunt, then we went to our next stop: Farmart.

No photos today but do check out our previous visit to Farmart HERE.

Did I mention our Farmart post was featured on The Smart Local feature - 50 Fun & Free things to do in Singapore? :)

Do check it out and support local produce. Eat healthy, be healthy!
Next up: I would like to find local organically grown vegetables.

They can not only be used to mark books and stationery...

name stickers for shoes
but also for shoes, especially useful in childcare centres and preschools where kids need to remove their shoes.
Or even when you go to indoor playgrounds. Brilliant.

the round stickers can be used on bottles and sippy cups.
and even iron-ons for clothes!

Honestly, Stickerkid has got to be the bespoke name-label maker for all parents and children.
I was just asking my mummy-friend Serene about the name label maker from Popular bookstore and God must've heard and intervened by sending Stickerkid to me.
I like them so much I'm going to order a set for Ashton as well. He ever brought home a wrong Avent milk bottle before because his previous name sticker peeled off after several washes in school.
I guess with Stickerkid, no more such peely-wally occurances!

{Haze go where} Free indoor activites: Singapore Changi Airport Terminal 3.

Since we live in the East, one of our favourite places to bring to children to has to be Changi Airport.
Recently, I am trying to find some free indoor places to bring the children to in this hazy weather and Changi Airport is a no-brainer location, winning hands-down for us.
Kids get to run around freely, watch planes landing and take off, and there are also many activities they can do which doesn't cost a single cent.
Like sketching and stenciling:

Or going on the infamous Slide @ T3.

There's also a free playground next to The Slide with benches and eateries beside.

Adam's and Ashton's favourite shop has to be Soda Pop which selles Tomica cars and race tracks.
They enjoy bringing their cars for free play with other children on this racing track table.

As long as you bring your own cars you can play for free, otherwise you can purchase any TOMICA car at the shop.

We love Changi Airport!
