We spotted a new footprint at Sentosa’s Imbiah Lookup.
Remember Mumble, the penguin from Happy Feet? He was the penguin who was a little different, he was the one who started tap dancing in the colony !
“Happy Feet Mumble’s Wild Ride!” is Sentosa 4D AdventureLand’s latest ride. This cabin throws us UP (mostly down) at breakneck speed as we raced down alongside the penguins.

The ride along and Down the cliffs is exhilarating, but it is more Fun when we can scream together with our buddies.
We feel for the poor penguins, it is not Fun to be chased by the vicious leopard seal!
In 4D, we follow poor Mumble as he tries desperately to escape the seal’s jaws.
Who is more cool ?
If we ask Boon Xin (or the smaller kids), her answer might be different.
Sentosa 4D AdventureLand’s interactive entertainment zone is home to three other exciting experiences. You might wish to read our previous experience in June.
We strongly recommend Journey 2. You will love the effects (the 4th D in 4D) when the giant centipede or spider appears :p

Desperados, cowboy sheriff stuff hee-huh! It is not everyday that our whole family can engage in some shooting Fun !

A few Sats ago, Boon Yee and Boon Xin were invited to Fun@Giggles. All respectable indoor playgrounds must be equipped with balls pit right
Located at Marine Parade, opposite Parkway Parade Shopping Mall, we followed Giggle’s bunny to find our own burrow of Fun!
Fun@Giggles is located on the 2nd floor, next to ANZ bank.
Every kids need to register on Ipad first
Admission fees for weekdays are for unlimited play, and weekends subject to 2 hours cap.
After taking a few minutes seconds to warmup, Boon Yee and Boon Xin wasted no time to trial the obstacles ! Daddy hated his Standard Obstacle Course (SOC), he wonders why kids love to punish themselves :p
Slides are adults-friendly but beware, the other kids will be staring at you !
And so we climb, jump, slide, balance and enjoy our morning workout.
The friendly staff brought the kids attention to this “orange arch” called Sona. We have to press a button for SONA to tell us a number sequence, then proceed to step on the numbers with our feet. It is all Fun until the third round, timer countdown runs faster, more numbers to remember, and your limbs are weak after all the hopping haha.
(Hint, tag team with your buddy to beat the system)
Fun@Giggles offer both Static (painting) and Mobile (motorcycles) Fun, kids can alternate between the two activities.
You can choose any ride and race with your friends. (Sorry Adults, motor racing is a kids-only activity)
At another corner, parents can help to inspire the kids in their arts and craft pursuit. It is a good opportunity for kids to catch their breathe after all the slides, Giant Balls, and Hide&Seek.
Front and rear view, although Fun@Giggles definitely has a lot of corners for kids to hide and explore.
Another highlight with Fun@Giggles are the friendly staffs. The big brothers and sisters will help kids with the different Fun stations, rock climbing too. Parents will feel safe to leave the kids behind for one or two hours.
If balancing act is too simple…
..what about some acrobatic activities ?
Video : Fun@Giggles got so many Fun stuffs, and friendly staffs
“Happy Kids = Happy Parents“. With four kids, we can guarantee this statement is True.
The balls pit might be shallow, but balls are balls, and kids will try their best to camouflage themselves within the colourful balls.
In another room, Fun@Giggles’ Parties are very popular. Click for party details.
Bye bye Fun@Giggles, kids left their playground with more than a few Giggles
You might be interested in some of the events conducted at Fun@Giggles too, eg First-Aid-for-Infant-and-child. We would like to thanks Fun@Giggles for inviting us.
We love Ikea’s kids friendly displays and we never forget to end our trip with their signature Swedish meatballs, chicken wings, or ice cream cones. The Nasi Brani (halal) set meal is value for money and delicious too.
Last Sat, we were at Ikea for a different reason, we were invited to a Robot building session ! Ikea wish to promote family bonding and fun through some group activities.
To quote from Ikea :
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ When it comes to KIDS, Ikea always believe that :
- Playing is learning for life
- Sleeping is growing for life
- Time with parents, family and friends is the most important
Ikea’s Philosophy is to try to understand a child’s world from their perspective, to learn about their developmental needs throughout different stages of their childhood.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~ ~~~
After we say Hello to our friendly Ikea droid, we got down to work.
Materials and props were prepared in advanced for us, so we only need to milk our creative juice. Who can pass Daddy the scissor, tape, and Uhu glue?
The smaller kids were more interested in doodling, rather than helping Daddy construct his robot. Fortunately, we got two friendly “teachers” from Artz Graine to guide us.
With Ikea’s “Make a friend” theme, kids say hello to each other, our robots and even the rag dolls! Kelvin (Cheekiemonkie) and Ai (Ai Sakura) busy at work.
Our Robot interfacing with Ash’s cute Minion
We are all proud of the kids’ Robots.
Daddy hope you can tell ours is a humble purple Robot, arts and craft is not really his forte. We added the elongated rabbit ears since the kids love our neighbour’s bunnies.
We call it “My Robot” since we are bad at naming too haha

Last Sunday at Central Library’s The Pod, you would have found a cute Penguin.
Let Daddy tell you about our aMAZe-ing adventure
Voyage of Dreams aims to encourage family bonding through creative play, and the main ingredient is our humble Cardboard (Yes, the same material which is normally associated with our friendly garang-guni)
Cardboard Dreams await when you step out at the 16th floor.
How can you expect the kids to resist the Whale, Balloons, and the MAZE !
A few hours earlier, our kids got to pose with their Hot Air Balloon at home. Who can forget the cartoon UP! To enhance our Dreams, we even pasted photos from our Putrajaya Hot Air balloon adventure.
At around 2 plus, Voyage of Dreams started with a soothing duet from Evelyn and Alf. It was cool to see the kids form part of the entourage.
Games galore, every family was encouraged to bring along their own diy games.
Fire Engine, Fishing and Jenga !
Marvel at the creativity of parents. Kids were eagerly exploring every game station.
At Auto city (name?), the boys were crazy about the cars, plane and train.
It is always easy to make parents smile. As long as the kids are enjoying themselves, we will be beaming broadly too
At Voyage of Dreams, there were so many opportunities to bring parent and child closer, like TanFamily
