Fire Station open house

[ This is a repost from our old blog ]

Every Sat from 0900 to 1100 is Fire station open house.

The last time we went Sengkang Firestation was in 2008. Look at how Yi has grown since then, although he is still very much adorable.

This time round, our Sengkang neighbour Daddy Vincent and Xavier joined us. The kids had so much fun bantering together, talking about the ambulance, fire-engine, fireman and water fun.

We can role play as medic or fireman.

We took some quiz, and everyone gets to wear the coveted Fireman’s hat !

We can play with the ladder.. it is free :p
You need one adult to accompany each child, if you wish to access the ladder.

Hello, can you hEar us !

A visit to a fire-station is not complete until you have a shower :p

Punggol Park

Those new to North East area will be confused why there is a Punggol Park in the middle of Hougang. Long before Sengkang and Punggol township were ready, Punggol road was plying from old Punggol to Hougang towards Upper Serangoon road.

That was the period when Punggol End was still filled with Seafood restaurants 🙂

Sengkang is blessed with a lot of Greens, all within a leisurely 15min ride. Do pop by our Neighbourhood Park explorations.

Since our last visit, Punggol Park has some new ammenities, the lake and playground are always popular with families, especially during weekends.

Joggers and cyclists like to run rounds around the lake’s circumference.
But it is still called Punggol Park 🙂

Punggol Park is located between Buangkok, Sengkang and Hougang.

Boon Yee and Boon Xin enjoys the trip most, they were riding pillions !

As our weekends are packed with kids’ curriculum, we really treasure the opportunity to explore the parks. Building our family bonds through a leisurely ride.

Before we head home, kids need to explore the playground first 🙂

Along the way back, we pass by Sengkang Firestation, and some big longkangs (drains). Daddy used to climb down and catch guppies in his younger days, although this might not be recommended now. Flash flood can sweep the strongest swimmers away.


Teach the kids how to cycle
, and your weekends will be packed with exploration trails 🙂
