When it rains at the Singapore Zoo

Most of us have been to the zoo before, but Daddy had another take last week.
He has volunteered his photography services to accompany two Primary 1 classes.

What he did not expect is RAIN would accompany us for half of the journey.
Look at the colourful umbrellas and raincoats, believe Daddy when he say morale was high among the kids. Afterall, not many parents would be keen to bring their kids sight seeing on a wet rainy day.




Daddy did not notice the exhibits come with braille for the visually handicap.

Rain or Shine, the children stayed inquisitive and curious.

Cute Ah-Meng Raincoats on sale

We took shelter under the Rainforest canopy, and we learn new things about our fragile ecosystem.


Yeah, the sun finally pops up to warm us up. Kudos to the kids, most of them were sported with wet hair, but Daddy did not hear anybody complains !

Some other animal exhibits. The beasts must be wondering which school send their children in the rain to visit the animals :p




The eerie naked mole rat arouses kids’ eeeks and yucks haha. We can even peep at the rats through custom build periscope !


Daddy is really grateful to accompany the kids on their adventures today. Initially, they were curious about that tall Uncle who keep taking photos under his umbrella. But after they warm up to Uncle Andy, everyone were so obliging for their Kodak moments šŸ™‚

As this is a learning excursion, kids have to complete their homework and talk about their outdoor class today. Daddy is not expecting anyone to say “No”, unless he or she wants to skip assignment :p

Singapore Blog Awards 2012


This is the third time Sengkang Babies are participating in Omy’s Singapore Blog Awards. The kids have grown along the way, we get to know more friends online and offline, and some have become kakis !

Friends (big and small ones) will always meet and catchup at events, to share fun places, even blogging and photography tips.

Sengkang Babies got some new features in 2012 :
– we started a Fanpage to share more photos.
– we got a little more chatty on Twitter and even dabble with pInterest.
SengkangBabies.com got our own domain now


Some things have not changed. The number of Daddy bloggers are still so few. Let Daddy highlight a few old/new Dads who are regulars online. Daddy bloggers motivate SengkangBabies to blog better and share more šŸ™‚

CheekieMonkie.net – If we need ideas for places of interest, we visit Daddy Kelvin’s blog
EdUnloaded.com – Edmund is among the pioneer Daddy bloggers in Singapore
daddy.nivlek.per.sg – Kelvin is the techie Daddy
jbabiesDad.blogspot.com – Daddy Isaiah is passionate about lifestyle and photography
dear.xander.sg – Daddy Winston writes letters to his little boy

More updates on our favourite blogs are listed at our blogroll page.


Ok, Daddy has talked so much, if are you still not convinced about joining Omy Blog Award already, they are dangling $30,000 worth of carrot to tempt you, and a Macau trip. Drop by sgBlogawards.omy.sg for more details.

Do not be surprised if you see Sengkang Babies appearing in non-Family categories :p

Parenting bloggers normally bring up the fun and happy moments, but believe us, looking after the kids is never easy. We may make it look easy, maybe because we are so use and numb to handling our kiddos by now haha :p

Visit our previous year experiences in 2010 and 2011.
We would like to thanks our friends (Xin Yun and Rui Ting) for nominating us, much appreciated šŸ™‚

Kids are still teaching us adults to learn and appreciate simple things everyday !
If not for the kids, Daddy would not have discover photography and blogging.
Remember SengkangBabies, remember our motto “We bring you fun !

Port of Lost Wonder at Sentosa

Splashing FUN ! Can Boon Xin tell us where is this new water playground?

Port of Lost Wonder (POLW) is Sentosa’s latest kids playground, located at Palawan beach. The central piece Pirate ship shouts “Captain Sparrow” !

Thanks to the overcast horizon, and occasional thunder we can only wait and reflect on how much FUN we are missing..

If the sun is out, kids will be able to do some plantation or foam party ! Just like our very own Sentosa Zoukout. First time visitors should have an orientation here.
We forgot to mention Parents enter for Free Yeah !

Rain Rain go Away, the Gloomy sky threatens to wipe out the kids’ smiles and anticipation..

At 3pm, we huddle into a tent to watch some talented macaws raise the flag šŸ™‚

We even had an opportunity to hand feed the adorable birds.

At about 4:50pm, the all-clear AHOY was blown, every kid dashed into the pool ! What a spectacular sight.

One by one, water start splashing from every nook and pipe ! Super Cool !

From here onwards, parents only see smiles and hear shouts of joy !

The pirate ship is adult friendly too, and we are so glad many parents join in the Fun ! Maybe adults got a childhood dream to be Captain Hook?

While you are enjoying yourself, listen out for the bell and exchange your curio coins for souvenirs or snacks!

.. so many colourful slides from the ship’s deck, that is Wen Yi climbing for the 50th time keke

Wen Xin is more interested in a orange ball? Watch the video to see how she like to splash her buttocks !


POLW – where both Kids and Adults can have quality family Fun time !

We will definitely be back, we looted four packets of coins home šŸ™‚

Entry fee for Port of Lost Wonder..

Thank you to Sentosa for the invite, SengkangBabies find POLW irreistable, and we will recommend this playground to friends. Say A-H-O-Y to more photos at our Fanpage album.
