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 […]

Climbing? Climb on! Here are my favourite local haunts for climbing and bouldering: 1. Climb Asia @ Civil Service Club http://climb-asia.com/home/news Best for its bouldering walls, I love lounging about its space with my friends mapping out routes and just cheering each other on. Climb Asia also features an indoor 9m wall (18 lanes) + outdoor 15m […]

UPON ARRIVAL in Narita Airport, we headed straight to Shinjuku and caught the highway bus to Yamanashi prefecture on a 2-hour journey. The bus had us dropped off at Kawaguchiko station – a lovely sight with its trains and railway tracks. Kawaguchiko station The small town of Kawaguchiko Ramen anyone? The town of Kawaguchiko was quiet. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

IT’S THE WORLD CUP season, and this Brazilian fan is experiencing it all in a unique way. As Carlos is both visually and hearing-impaired, his friend has creatively adapted the activity with the use of tactile cues and touch. Very impressive!

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 […]

WHAT BETTER way to work your quadricep and hamstring muscles than a good cycling workout? Even better in the company of good friends. Yesterday, my fellow OT friends and myself (I love this group really, we have OTs in acute hospital, community, mental health and paediatrics practices) met up for a leisurely cycle. The haze […]
