In 2017 we travelled more. We travelled to Sri Lanka 2 times within the year and I spent more than one month with the kid while husband returned to Singapore after a short holiday. We also had a trip to Cambodia during the Chinese New Year. In between we visited Johor Bahru, Malaysia several times. But, it seems we didn’t visit much places in Singapore during the year 2017 after our 5 days itinerary around Singapore with kids.

When it is time to plan our Christmas weekend, at first we thought of a overseas trip. But, kid and I were just returned from Sri Lanka after a long holiday. Instead of another oversea trip, we wanted to spend a family day without many activities. A beach day is the perfect idea for such a relaxing time. So, we planned a day at the Changi Beach Park!

I’ve visited Changi Beach Park many times before the kid’s arrival. However this was the first time we visited the beach park with the kid. So, he was really happy to spend a day at the beach with her favourite sand play toys.
