    Gymboree does the same activites every time? a bit boring leh. Today i went to MY GYM at Great world city, n the teachers told me that they will have new activites every time. The fees are $375 for 10 sessions + 10 weeks open gym play. Whats the deal u r getting? And ur girl is so cute... [​IMG]

    Im also a SAHM, left my job previous job as my mum n MIL are working, and i have to take care of Randal myself. I always go to Tiong baru plaza when i don't wish to go somewhere further, anyway, my place is just 3 bus stops away from TBP

    Clarissa
    How does playgroup work? Well usually what we do is we wil have an "open hse" at somebody's place, and we will bring our babies along to play. To make it more enticing, we usually have potluck (as u know, food draws people together, hee hee) Also we have outings to town or wherever.. to shop , eat, chit chat, chill out or just do nothing.. MY GYM at great world city is also quite near for us.. Can u tell me GUG is which place?

    Berrysweet
    i used CDC catering. i think full name is continental delight catering. For my son's full month celebration. Find that it is quite good. Oh, i also used them for my wedding church reception.

    Priscilla
    I thought of enrolling Randal in MY GYM, but i wanted to check out other places like gymboree n tumbletots before i make a decision

    PPP
    u have signed up gymboree's classes already right? DO they have something like free trial for friends u bring? Cos the MY GYM was a free trial session that i attended, as my friend is a member there.

    Hi Esther,

    Ya, I signed my gal up for 15 classes @$300+ can't remember the exact amount I paid. Still got 4 more to go....there is no free trial session leh, our member card can only use to play thier gym with cheaper rate if not wrong. Actually gymboree @vivo got glass wall, people can see what we r doing inside.[​IMG] so u can pop by sat 1pm to see how they conduct the class.[​IMG]

    I try to gather the info of our members, our bbs' gap is quite close.[​IMG]

    clarrisa
    the my gym at gwc is quite big n nice. go chk it out, its at level 3, just a few shops away from planet fitness

    during playgp, the kiddo just free play around, mums will b busy holding them , but most of the times, its more for mums to gather n chitchat. of course we cld plan something more structured for the babies, like sing along songs, dance, blah blah.. maybe mumies can take turns to lead.. Just like wat they do at the baby gyms. [​IMG]

    Hi there!

    I stay opp Bukit Ho Swee near to Great world. My son, Jovan, just turn 20 mth old.

    Esther: GUG means Growing up Gifted. It's a play school at United Sq. My boy finish his 6 lessons 2-3 months ago and we did not intend to sign him up further. He's still young and concentration still not so good. Will sign him up for other class when he is 2yrs +.

    If u mummies intend to have a gathering, let me know k! [​IMG]

    hihi! good to have u around here, join us more ok, othewise seems like a ghost town here. Is GUG good? i heard my other mummy friend also sign up lessons there. DO they have a website? if yes, can give me the add?
  21. i_bless_u

    i_bless_u Active Member

    Esther: haha! Yeah we were in the same FISH thread i did not notice till u mention!

    GUG is not bad lah but is the same routine as with any other school...go in first thing teacher will sing welcome song, then follow up puppet story telling, then abit of phonics,, music class sing n do some action exercise, then have a short break then do small projects. Just that they wont have coencentration to sit still to listern to teacher when she teach or tell story. My boy will @@ here @@ there and also walk around the room touch things. He only like music lesson.

    Myboy likes to dance too to those pop/rock n roll music. But i'm thinking of sending him to piano lesson when he's abt 3yrs old. He likes to play those piano in the kids dept or Carrefour those small real piano. I'm also thinking of sending him to abacus classes too.

    Initally wanna let him learn Kindermusik but my hubby says tat's not a skill, just any other class for sing n dance n play small instrument.

    As he grows older, really need to think what to let him learn things like that.

    clarissa,
    i hvn't give even egg yolk yet... hahaha... my last visit to doc, they advise to give yolk at 1 yr.... i will give cheess, probably when my boy is 8mths loh.

    french beans huh, you can steam and puree it and put into your porridge cook w pork/chicken... usually i do that loh, steam and puree carrot and add it into the porridge.

    ur boy so cute.. full of smiles...[​IMG]

    clarissa
    i give my 10 mth boy yolks, Its gd for their development. Its safe to give them yolks if they are under 1. But for whites, give them only after 1. but if ur PD advice to give yolks only after 1, then better follow his advice. I also give him cheddar cheese slices with milk melt in rice cereal, he loves it a lot.

    Good to see so many mumies staying around this area.. Interested in coming to my place for gathering, n get to know u?? We can have a playdate, swimdate and potluck session. I have done it for other mummies, that time we had about 12 mummies turning up, and it was great fun! [​IMG]

    what i cook for my bb

    brocolli + cauliflower + carrot + salmon in pasta
    i just boil everything for 1 hr (salmon n brocolli only last 15 min) in the multifunction cooker. After that, i blend them and serve. However for salmon, i will just mash it with fork till fine.

    corn + onion + yolk in brown rice
    i boil corn and onion in brown rice for the stock (sweet n tasty). I boil an egg for 15 min till its hard-boiled. Then blend the brown rice in soup stock. I mash the egg yolk and add it into the blend.

    clarissa
    my boy is 10 mths. its just an informal playgroup, we let the babies have free play. Mummies dun need to do anything like conduct a class or anything.. we just look after n run after our babies.. hee. Actually mainly is to let us mummies chit chat n gather more than anything... haha
    i also give him avocado blended with apple, and add in some rice cereal. Avo have a lot of good fat, its aids in their brain development. Its yummy, even i myself find it yummylicious, its like a dessert. But i dun dare eat too much of it, scared get fat!

    usually gatherings we have on weekdays, but we cld have it on a fri too.. how come u only work 4 day week? special request to ur boss huh? so good.. u get to work n also spend some time with bb. i stay teresa ville, its the condo opposite CHIJ, beside Radin Mas Pri Sch. U have any idea where is it? I give my boy chicken n fish so far.

    i bless u , mist
    the avos r frm ntuc. but usually when u buy, its a nice greenish colour, which is not ripe yet. After i buy, i leave it out in the open (dun put in fridge)for 2 days. The skin will turn into brownish colour. When u press it, it is slightly soft. Means it has ripen oredi, n ready to b eaten. When ripe, u can peel off the skin easily. I only use half of an avo blend with half an apple. The other half of the avo, (with seed in it) i put in air tight container n keep in fridge for tomolo. DUN remove the seed, as the seed helps to preserve the freshness of the avo. Other than apple, i also blend with banana. its really creamy n tasty! Try them, avos contains a lot of good fat, esp good if u wana fatten up ur bb! haha...
  49. i_bless_u

    i_bless_u Active Member

    Esther: Many thanks for ur receipe, when we wanna blend, we have to remove the seed right? Oh i know where is Teresa Ville, been there several times my gf used to stay there but now rented out her hse.
    There's a very nice lor mee at Bt Purmei, I simply love it!
  50. estertoh

    estertoh Active Member

    i bless u
    ye, when u wana blend u must remove seed. i usually cut into smaller pcs then blend, easier to blend till smooth. otherwise there may be chunks.
    The lor mee ah, i know! There is alwasys a Q leh.. but hor, personally i find it so so only leh.. Hey come 1 day, we go n eat together. [​IMG] we r so near.. Can bring our babies out to walk walk too.

  53. claire

    claire New Member

    esther, you mean you use avo as a meal for your boy? no right? meant to be fruits after or in between meals right?

    wow food...interesting topic [​IMG] me quite crazy over what food to give to son cos i abit paranoid over his wts. (my boy born small at 2.4kgs and now at 8mths, he still very thin lor - just 8.3kgs..8.3kgs for the longest time! sicne about 7mths..dunno why never increase one????..is it cos he keep walking about non stop??? sigh! how heavy are all your kids huh?)

    my boy is 8mths plus abit. lunch will normally give brown rice/white rice/millet + toufu (always) + 2 vege + 1 meat or fish (meat is either chix/pork and fish is either cod/salmon/threadfinj. than before serving, will sprinkle anchovy powder..

    dinner will be 1 type of cereal (barley or rice or oatmeal or mixed grain) + 2 vege. Sometimes i give main meal potatoes (+1 side vege - normally carrots/peas) for dinner.

    in between meals, snacks he will have cheese/yoghurt+fruits or boiled pumpkin/carrots/potatoes/sweet potatoes/biscuits

    will give 1 serving of fruits, if i am more hardworking, 2 servings (pear/apples/peaches/banana/prunes.. i wanna give fresh apricots but never seen before le )

    my next mission is to give asparagus soon. when he reaches 9mths, i wanna give french beans, split peas, yolk, avocado and beef. than comes pasta! wow... I am looking forward to his exciting food journey!
