Splash-N-Surf, Kallang Wave Mall – Singapore

2016-03-28 15.08.40 copyI took the kids here for the day as they desperately wanted to go to a water park, but I personally wasn’t in a water-park-swimming-costume-wearing type of place!

We got the Circle line on the MRT and got off at Stadium. A word of warning, Google maps then told me to take exit B and walk all the way around the front of the stadium. This is completely wrong! Take exit A and the mall is right in front of you.

The mall itself isn’t particularly huge, but it does have a big Fair Price Extra where you can stock up on water and snacks, it also has a variety of eateries.

Asian Civilisations Museum – Singapore

Asian Civilisation MuseumThe Asian Civilisations museum is touted as one of the best museums in Singapore so on a slightly rainy day, mid-school holidays, I took the kids along.

It isn’t especially expensive to get in and if you are Singaporean or a permanent resident, then you get in free. Also, many of the international schools buy membership so kids that attend those schools can also get in free. You can ask if your child’s school has membership at the ticket desk. It is easily accessed from Raffles Place MRT.

Restoran Rokaro, Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia

I had been staying at the Hilton PJ for a few days already.  There was an Exec Lounge at the hotel, which provided me with my much-needed beer supplies – but only until 8pm at which time the beer was cruelly taken away.  I was wandering the streets looking for a new supplier when I came across Restoran Rokaro.  This is a Japanese karaoke bar that offers lots of seafood (yes, you can pick your own live lobster and then eat it…) lots of drinks and some karaoke too.  There was a very large sign that read “Members Only” but I think this was to deter some of the less well off locals – I was warmly welcomed and offered service immediately.

Wonderworks Magic Dinner Show, Orlando – USA

Wonder-works is located beside an up-scale shopping and dining area in International Drive.  We left allowing enough time to find somewhere to park, ended up in a traffic jam with what we thought were a few minutes to spare, dumped the car with a valet parker, ran a few hundred yards to wonder-works (simultaneously carrying and/or dragging several children), only to discover a multistory car park right beside wonder-works and a twenty minute wait to actually get in to the show.

Tickets advise you to get there half an hour before the show starts. Unless you are deeply concerned about sitting at the front, don’t bother being that early as they just make you wait until five minutes before the show to let you into the seating area. We were seated fairly near the back and we could still see the magician.
