Triplets Fun Swimming Class at YMCA!

YMCA swimming classes are so fun!!! The trios were afraid of water, scared of cold, were basically scaredy cats at the pool! Till they joined the fun swimming classes at YMCA! The creative instructors used fun and play to teach water safety and swimming techniques. Pool noodles are seahorses, giant float is a pretend boat, every lesson is a fun adventure at the "sea", haha! I enjoy watching their lessons, there's so much laughter and joy, I wish I can join them too, LOL!

 Free Water Playgrounds!

Free Water Playgrounds!

We were on vacation in Singapore (our home country) last Dec during Winter and it was the most Summery Winter ever as it's...
365 DAYS, ALL YEAR ROUND SUMMER in Singapore.
And the best part is, it's possible to play in water EVERYDAY!!!
The kids were spoiled with choices of water playgrounds, wading pools, water features almost everywhere they went.
We went shopping, and there's a huge water playground at the roof top!
We went to the Zoo and there's a free rainforest water park!!
Even when we went to a family gathering at our cousins' condominium, there'are so many wading pools!!!
Singapore, is really a land of FREE WATER PLAYGROUNDS EVERYWHERE.
So that's our wettest Winter, ever, LOL.

First Beach Vacation in Asia

First Beach Vacation in Asia

Triplets return to their hometown Singapore in South East Asia! It's their first trip back to tropical Singapore and we brought them to the neighboring Bintan Beach Resort for a fun-filled sunny weekend! Giant monitor lizards roam outside our villa, baby elephant lazing around the beach and we took a "dangerous" speed boat ride to a "kelong" in the middle of the sea for a sumptuous seafood lunch! Yummy! The trio had fun in a private pool with a giant slide all to ourselves and we swam everyday!

Roger and I had a relaxing Javanese couple massage in a local spa. We missed it sooooo much, the tropical spa decor, incense aromatherapy and after message ginger tea. What a relief from the bustling city life and hectic schedule, and of course, some precious quiet moment for us. We will definitely come back again, for another weekend getaway!

Pool Noodle Life Hack

Pool Noodle Life Hack

We went swimming at YMCA and forgot to bring the floats! Luckily there were some pool noodles lying around, so we tried the urban legend: Pool Noodle Life Hack!

Simply tie the pool noodle around your kid and make sure the knot is in front to give your child extra buoyancy. That's it! But do help to check that the knot is securely in place once in a while. You can never be too careful.

They worked wonders! And even better than those specially designed, patented pool floats - arm floaties - life vests etc.
Any cons? Ya! Le kids thought that they are swimming experts and wanna teach us how to swim!!

海滩初体验

海滩初体验

宝贝们从没玩过海水,我们不是嫌海滩人多麻烦,就是天气太冷。夏天时,爸爸又忙着赶工,所以宝贝们快三岁了还没看过浪花。上周,冬天里难得出现了艳阳天,我们便赶紧为宝贝们穿上短裤拖鞋,开一小时的车到(Cabrillo)卡布里洛海滩。宝贝们知道要到海滩,都开心得不得了,乖乖上车系好安全带,一路上不吵不闹。一到海边,三只小瓜把鞋一脱,便蹦跳到沙滩上。小小赤脚一碰到沙粒,先是迟疑了一下,三秒后便象脱缰的野马,在辽阔的沙滩上蹦跑玩闹。看见了我们带来的小铲子、小喷壶、小水桶,他们便一屁股坐在沙堆上,开心地挖着沙。天真的小孩不怕脏,把沙到处抛,搞得头发、上衣、裤脚都是沙,但他们却不以为然。

First sand & sea experience, LOL! 海水初体验

Posted by WinnieTriplets on Sunday, February 16, 2014

我问爸爸要不要让他们玩水啊?他说怕冷不太好。但难得来海滩,我便独自走向海水,享受把脚浸泡在水中的乐趣。一转身,才发现孩子们都好奇地跟在我后头。老大一看到海浪,兴奋极了,也跟着海浪跑上跑下。小妹一碰到海水便好似发现新大陆地说:“好冷呀!”(It’s cold)。老二呢,则对沙粒比较有兴趣,不厌其烦地玩着铲子与水桶,堆满了又倒出,再堆满再倒出。我陪着老二玩沙,一抬头便看到好玩的爸爸与老大小妹在追海鸥,怎么可能抓得到啊,哈哈!这次的海滩初体验圆满成功,期待下次再去吧。
