Siloso beach at Sentosa in Singapore. This was taken from the bar area of Ola. Ola just opened the week before and I saw it on Instagram. Decided to bring the family there for a day on the beach. It was beautiful. Gorgeous place though the menu is not extensive but whatever we ordered, and we ordered a lot, it was good. I especially liked their tea. I can’t remember the name of it but it was so good I, alone ordered it 3 times.
I have not been back to Siloso beach for years and now it is unrecognisable. The whole island is unrecognisable. Not too sure if it is for the better or not. Singapore does know how to keep the greenery and not totally destroy its natural beauty while at the same time it created jobs and brought in tourist which is always good for the country’s economy.
All in all, it was a good day. Z got sunburnt on her face even with 50 protection on. Delicate skin, this girl has. J, on the other hand, didn’t quite like the water yet. Ola has a pool so we thought to let Jo go for a dip. Guess who ended up enjoying the pool more? You guessed it! my bumblebee Z!
Go visit Ola at Siloso beach on Sentosa island!
Cascata delle Marmore – Marmore falls

This photo was taken from the outside. It was on a whim that we stopped by this waterfall last year in August. We were on our way back from the south after a summer holiday with my parents, aunt and parents in law. Got the idea for this whim from a friend of mine who visited it just a few days before for his summer holidays. Since we wanted to break our long journey back from the south, on my insistence we search and found an amazing B&B in Arrone which was only 5 km away from this beautiful sight. However, when we got there, there was this HUGE line for the tickets to enter that we decided we will do this possibly another time. My MIL was already fretting as we had an eventful morning before this and to wait inline for a few hours with a 6 month old and all the older folks was not a good idea. So we drove out of the parking lot and further up ahead on the road that led to the highway and stopped to take this photo. you could feel the spray of the fall this far out!! It was quite a sight! I definitely recommend that you visit this place if you have a chance. From what I heard from my friend as well, it is definitely worth it. Hopefully we will get round to visiting this place again when we are more prepared. Like possibly getting the tickets online. oh wait! They don’t have online ticketing.. dang it! Oh well, be ready to brave the queue.
This waterfall is located in Terni I think. you can get more info on it here. Some of the translation is not the best but you can get the general idea. Have fun!
Huge ass lemon like fruit called cedro in Italian. See how huge it is compared to my hand or that orange. It seems that you eat it with some salt and balsamic vinegar. Will be trying it tonight. Let’s see if it is as interesting as it looks.
San Sebastian Basilicata at Barcellona Pozzo di Grotto.
Hello, it has been a while. Been busy being a mummy and trying to work (“trying to” being the operative word). For now, am on a family holiday down south with my parents and aunt who have to visit.
You might just see more updates from the south…toodeloos!
One of the best buys that M has made. It is a chargeable LED night light cum torchlight. It changes colour both top and bottom. Or either one could be on or off or one of them on one colour while the other changes. Then when you need a torch just lift the top part off and instantly you have a torch!
I find this so useful especially now that I have a baby. I don’t have to turn on the lights whenever I want to check in her or change her diaper. The other best buy is a glow in the dark pacifier. Trust me on this if you child uses pacifiers. Saves you time searching in the bed all over for a missing pacifier. 🙂
Teatro di Silenzio meaning Theatre of Silence. A place where Andrea Bocelli performs. If I am not mistaken this is his hometown, Lajatico in Tuscany.
Week 24 and my tummy is eclipsing my beautiful new and very comfy shoes.
