When Yi plays with such glee, you know something is happening for the kids. We were invited to Suntec City’s new playground, Hokey Pokey.
Just look at this cool castle. Daddy had dream of his own castle since young, now the kids get to live in their own fort !
To quote from the five mummies/owners of Hokey Pokey :
“an educational and fun haven where mommies and daddies can bring their little kiddos to with a peace of mind. Safety and hygiene is our utmost concern and they will never be compromised. After all, we, ourselves are our biggest critic.”
Follow Boon Xin as she shows you how to have FUN !
..oops.. she decided to go for a makeover first. The dressing table proves too irresistible for little gals. (Daddy is curious why Xin knows how to apply lipstick ?)
Yi decides to show his metrosexual side but he could not find the ingredients. Maybe Hokey Pokey management can prepare some chef’s hat for the kids 🙂
Look at how they roll up and down the slope. If no one is looking,
Daddy is tempted to try this too….
Cars, Bikes, Lorries and fire engines will cater to the kids’ adrenalin.
Kids can indulge in some jamming session at another corner. Xin loves the little piano.
Anyone interested to be sim-city mayor? or take a helicopter ride, let kiddos’ imagination roam.
Yi and Xin also got an opportunity to create a cute ducky photo frame too. Both of them were so enthusiastic and proud about pasting their own design pieces 🙂
While they are getting busy, Daddy pop around to explore Hokey Pokey, which is like a Toys’ supermarket !
Kids will be thrilled if Mummy say she is going to abandon them for 2 to 3 hours keke.
Do you know which is the kids’ favourite section ?
As long as kids are having fun (and safe), Daddy does not mind how they slide down ! (maybe Mummies will disagree haha)
We has so much fun, playing hamtum-bola (ball whacking)..
.. and someone taught Xin levitation :p
Who brought out the bubbles ! Everyone scramble to the front for some bubble Fun 🙂
Time flies, when kids are having fun. We can easily spend fours hours at Hokey Pokey.
Daddy was invited to a food tasting session at “Pantry at the Stables“. With a name like that, you would be expecting dining somewhere near to exotic horses?
During the drive in, you will feel a sense of “countryside”, right here in urban Singapore. The journey is made more authentic when we spotted some horse poo 🙂
(Daddy Kelvin has graciously offer a ride)
Located at the Fairways Drive Green. Daddy suspect this is one ulu (remote) destination which Taxi drivers might try to avoid.
Daddy ordered Cookies and Cream shake for his beverage. Who can resist Oreo dipped in chocolate shake? Indulgence at $9.
Pantry at the Stables had a special offer for Father’s Day set at $49.
#01 Starter : Crab cake on celeriac remoulade, topped with wild rocket and shaved fennel salad
If you love crab, you will love this starter. Rich Crab fillings will surround your taste bud.
#02 Mains : Linguine alio olio with crispy pork belly , mushroom and parsley parmesan chilli crumbs
The crispy 烧肉 (roasted pig) is so sinfully delicious. You can hear the crunchiness. Who would have thought of 烧肉 in a western restaurant?
#03 Dessert : Bitter sweet chocolate torte with poached figs and vanilla bean ice cream
We did not try the torte, but we went for “Sticky Date and Toffee Pudding with Vanilla Ice Cream” ($12). We heard this is Pantry’s all time favourite dessert since 1999 !
For $49, the above three dishes were offered as part of Father’s Day celebration.
There are more to share from the Stables.
Spaghetti Carbonara ($24)
Thick creamy sauce for those who love their Spaghetti sweet. We had to consume this while hot, or the spaghetti will taste bland and overbearing once it cools.
Mexican Chicken Salad ($22)
There are are so many ingredients in this salad, crispy tortilla, avocado,
spiced corn and salsa. They mess really well in our mouths. Hard to describe the taste, but Daddy love the texture and refreshing bites.
Steak and Eggs ($38) – on a skillet with smashed peas
Delicious! Daddy always prefer his beef well done, but he was tempted by the medium rare steak. We heard this is one of the popular dish at Stables.
Cupcakes ($4.50 each)
Although we were quite full already , we could not resist some dessert attacks. We gobble down an Elvis (chocolate banana cake with peanut butter frosting), Red Velvet (red velvet cake with coconut cream cheese frosting) and cupcake of the month (June banana and passion fruit cupcake).
Must admit the Red Velvet’s coconut sweetness won Daddy over.
More than the food, Daddy gives 8.5 for the ambiance. Sunday brunch at the Stables should be very desirable for families. Imagine dining in the “country side”, with the occasional sightings of horses.
We would like to take this opportunity to thanks the nice people from FoodNews (Janice) and “Pantry at the Stables” for hosting us.
Pantry at the Stables is located at 55 Fairways Drive, Singapore 286846

We start with a River cruise ride in Marina Bay. It feels nice when kids are so near to Merlion, we can even feel her splash.
Kids are not so curious about Singapore’s Icons and landmarks, but they definitely love cruising along Marina Bay !!
Take a peep at the usual landmarks around Marina Bay, it feels different to photograph them from a boat.(MBS, Fullerton, Esplanade, ArtsScienceMuseum etc etc)
Downtown Singapore definitely got an amazing landscape, and we are sure the view at night will be splendid !
Are they working on NDP’s structures?
On to part TWO of our journey, the kids dashed out immediately after we moored. Is Singapore Flyer so alluring for kids ?
Look who we found, DJ Chong Qing. Yi and Xin recognise Auntie Lucy, but they are confused about his/her gender keke 🙂
At Flyers, there is an interactive gallery. (Journey of Dreams)
We have been on the Flyer a few times. Nevertheless, our kids are always excited when we reach the top. “I can see THIS, I can see THAT !! They will always shout Merlion ! ”
Xin found a new friend. Jayne (from jBabies) is older by one week 🙂
More views from our Flyer cabin 🙂
Kids can even catwalk and pose for Daddy.
It is always challenging to get everybody together for a family pose 🙂
Third Stop, open top bus. Our kids rushed to the front rows on the upper deck.
The windy bus ride offers yet another perspective for us to enjoy Singapore’s skyline, and cultural enclaves.
Did you notice the moon is following us 🙂
If you are thinking of bringing your family down for 2 hours of fun, do consider Singapore Flyer’ Land, Sea and and Sky package. We love it !
