Talkative Thursday: The Three Little Pigs – No, not Nicole, Nathan & Nadine

Are you familiar with the story The Three Little Pigs? Well, in 2010, I guest blogged here and shared my doubts. Two days ago, I was in a clinic with Nathan, and we got the chance to read the Ladybird version. (now, that should be quite close to the real thing right? It’s Ladybird, for…



iFly Singapore – An Interview with a 7 year old Flyer

Nicole had the awesome privilege to try out iFly in Sentosa recently. The only way to find out how it went was to ask her casually some questions on her experience. She’s the youngest possible flyer, since 7 year old is the minimum age requirement. How did you feel when you first saw the entire…
