Good and Cheap Crab at Punggol You Must Try

This is now my go-to-place for crabs when I crave for it. Not just me, but my entire family will head to the same place too! Because the crab is cheap and oh-so-good!

Just look at this Salted Egg Crab! This is finger licking goodness, very flavourful and cooked to hit all senses. I can eat this everyday if I could. And its only $28 per pop! All their crabs are sold at the same price, no matter how big/small or how you choose to cook it. So cheap how can anyone resists?

When I was there for the first time with my family on New Year’s Eve, the crab fish tank was filled and by time we are half way done with our dinner, it was empty! Got to go early to avoid disappointment.

We also tried their Chili Crab and it was very good too. But because I’m basis with anything salted egg cooked, I rank this No. 2 on the table served that night.

That night we also feasted on their Assam Fish Head and it was not bad too. I rank this No. 3 amongst all the other food we had.

If you’re craving for some good and yummy crab, head over to the coffee shop next to Soo Teck, take the Punggol LRT West line. There I said it. And I’m so going to regret one day cos there’ll be more competitors snatching these yummy crabs from us.

Now where’s my crab?

Playtime at Happy Willow

We finally visited an indoor playground after procrastinating for some time. I initially thought that indoor playgrounds are just obstacles, slides and big ball pits for kids who have started walking. G (my other half) also kept telling me that Isaac is too young and there is probably nothing for him to play there. Nonetheless, we still went ahead to check it out.

When we initially entered the playground, Isaac refused to be put down. He was afraid, yet curious of his surroundings. We took turns to hold him and slowly put him down when we felt he was ready.

After some time, he became more confident and started to move about. Since the playground was not suitable for him, we spent most of our time at the Toddler area where he had lots of fun.

After our experience today, I am glad I can say that Isaac had a good time during his first experience at an indoor playground. What I liked most about bringing him there, is seeing him become more confident and how he gradually learnt to share. Can’t wait to bring him here again next time!

Hey Baby! One More Time!

With one, we could dedicate and give her our 100%.
When the second arrived, we doubled our love and dedication.
The eldest has a companion and the youngest has a role model.
They both have a playmate.

The grandparents always say, “One more one more” and so they got their wish come true.
With the arrival of a number three in the family they are kept busy and accompanied with three little ones.
And that’s also how Punggol Babies come about.
Because it is more fun together!

When 1+1 = 3

When we first found out that we are having a baby, we were thrilled. We could not wait to share this awesome piece of news with the family and close friends. Somehow, we managed to keep it under wraps until we hit the second trimester before officially breaking the news.

I was lucky to have an easy pregnancy with many people who showered the baby and me with a lot of love. We looked forward to our gynae visits knowing that we will be able to see the little one through that black and white screen. At the back of my head, I kept thinking that I am having a baby girl. I had so many names in mind, and had thought of ways to dress her up. She could probably take over my Sylvanian Families collection. As it turned out, I was having a baby boy!

Having no experience with baby boys (I only have lovable nieces), I started to research on what I should expect when raising a baby boy. To which, I thank God for many self help channels / social media platforms where I can learn from others’ experiences.

Apart from my final 2 days prior to delivery (I was 36 weeks along), which I could not walk anymore due to my hurting pelvic bones, my pregnancy journey was a pleasant one. No morning sickness, not much water retention, no cravings. In fact, I did not even know I was in labour until we were at the hospital checking out the cause of my disability to walk! When we were told that the baby would arrive the next day, we did not even have a name for him yet. Meeting him was a magical moment for me and my better half. At that instant, we finalized his name. His name is Isaac (meaning : laughter).

Hello world, meet the light of my life – Isaac.
