THAT IS ONE item checked off my bucket list – doing a wheelchair wheelie. That means balancing on the rear wheels of a wheelchair. Over the course of the last week, we had the pleasure of hosting the good people from the Wheelchair Skills Program (WSP) as part of the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) Healthcare […]

THIS VESAK DAY saw us trekking a route less travelled. Known as the pipeline trail, the 10km route took us parallel to Bukit Timah Expressway (BKE) on the outskirts of protected area – starting from Zhenghua Park in Bukit Panjang, via Mandai, to Woodlands. The water pipes are mostly covered beneath ground, but there are […]

MY LITTLE GIRL fantasy fulfilled. I swam with dolphins 🐬🐬🐬 Okay, not really swim but an underwater experience with my favourite mammals! Diving is not a requirement in the Dolphin TREK encounter. It involves the Sea TREK® helmet which has a backpack of sorts supplying continuous air supply. Where at? The Dolphin Island at Resorts World Sentosa. Don’t […]

THE ISSUE WITH powered mobility is a complicated one. No doubt that the average powered wheelchair or scooter has the ability to transform lives of its users – an elderly man with osteoarthritic knees who has difficulty walking long-distance for medical appointments, the middle-aged housewife with poor endurance from a heart condition needs to go marketing, […]

I HAVE ALWAYS wanted to try wakeboarding, and I have been told that it is an easier sport than cableskiing. So we spent our Sunday at Punggol-Marina. Amongst the three of us, myself and Olivia were first-timers and Yihui is a regular-wakeboarder for the past 5 years. Great that I had a buddy who was […]

IT STARTED OUT as a session rendering my therapy training to provide in-water assessments for children. Ten sessions later, these children have graduated from the paracanoeing development programme. The programme is an initiative by Canoeing Cares, supported by the Singapore Canoe Federation (SCF) and Asian Women Welfare Association (AWWA) TEACH ME Services. The young participants […]

A FAIRLY patriotic post, this one shall be. I got my hands on a pair of last-minute tickets to catch the yearly National Day Parade (NDP) in celebration of Singapore’s 49th birthday since we became an independent state. Thank you to the kind soul for donating your tickets! So off we headed to the Marina […]

GIVEN THE SIZE of HDB flats in Singapore, you can hardly squeeze a trampoline in.  Yesterday, my friends and I tried out Singapore’s first Indoor Trampoline Park called AMPED situated in Katong. At $9/12/15 per hour (depending on peak periods), it was the most fun thing I had all week. It is said that trampolining […]

TO HAVE a feel of surfing in Hawaii, you can try standup paddling. That was how I spent my recent Saturday with a fun-loving bunch. It was a pretty awesome deal on Groupon for a 2-hour introductory lesson in the waters of Changi. Yay to online deals! But no, kidding. The sea waters in Changi […]

A FRIEND WAS shopping at a mall when she came across a sports booth with a familiar looking person plastered on it. I received her WhatsApp message saying, “Nani, is that you?” Turns out it was me indeed! Accidental poster girl for the month 😂 In December last year, my friends and I took part in […]
