WA (Perth-Albany) June 2015

Didn’t write a single entry the whole of June as we were busy having fun in Western Australia! It was a fun and memorable trip as we went with 3 other families.. It was memorable also because our return flight was delayed for more than 22 hours.. Will share our itinerary first and hopefully, I’ll add in more details.. 😁



My son is turning 7!

Time flies.. My boy is in P1 this year.. We didn’t plan to have any party for him this year and we’ve prepared him for it.. But last week, he was eagerly expecting to get a superman costume for his birthday party when I reminded him that there would be no party this year.. Guess the Spiderman party last year must have left a deep impression on him..

Anyway, I didn’t want to disappoint him but I didn’t want to plan anything big.. So I tried to think of something simple.. Did a Google search and found Onsight Climbing Gym which organizes rock climbing party for kids and found it to be a good option.. My kids had never tried rock climbing before and I’ve always wanted to let them try.. The price was also reasonable so I tried my luck and called to check if there’re any slots available since it was so last minute.. Luckily, the lady suggested Friday from 5.30-7.30pm.. It was a good timing and fortunately, I managed to find 8 kids who were able to attend..

And that was how we had a small party for my first-born!

We were given 2 choices for the theme-Minecraft or Transformers- and my dear son chose the former.. Tried to search for items for the goodie bags.. Since it was so last minute, we couldn’t get from Taobao so I searched Carousell for some possible items.. Managed to get some loot bags and nano blocks within 2 days and order arrived on Tuesday! Phew.. Also managed to order a Minecraft cake from The Cake Shop! Contemplated baking on my own but not confident if I could find the time.. Would be too rushed to ask Cuppy Cakes to print for me so settled for the most convenient option..  The Chew family were the first to arrive! The cake collection took us a long time so we were late.. 😝

The kids were all eager but apprehensive about climbing up the tall wall!

My 2 kids were happy to put on the harnesses..


Of they went up the wall!image 


For dinner, we ordered from Domino’s Pizza.. Food arrived half an hour before scheduled, which was a good thing.. Hee.. Most commented that it was not bad.. But the kids didn’t eat much so we had quite a bit left over.. 

After about two hours of climbing, it was time to sing the birthday song!


After the cake cutting, the goodie bags were distributed and the kids were allowed to choose the Minecraft nanoblocks they liked..

There were 8 characters for them to choose from..  

I hope the kids enjoyed themselves and to quote a friend, I hope growing up won’t bring them down!!
