Undoubtedly one of the best holiday camps in SG – Newton Show Camp

As we were not travelling for the most of the June holidays and I know they will be pretty restless at home and I needed some peace and quiet at home for a busy work week, I decided to turn to Newton Show Camp as their camps are always fun and fulfilling for the boys. In fact, this is their 5th camp with Newton Show  you can read more about their experiences in the past camps here  they have done Harry Potter both Science and Maker, Multi Activity and Newton Lab, they have practically grow up with Newton Show especially small C, who started attending their camp since 5 year old! 

I asked the boys to look through the entire lists of camps this Summer (see below), and they chose the multi STEM for a change coz small J wanted to make lava lamp, in fact they have so many different camps, it is so hard to choose! 

Day 1 – Light-up

Learning all about electricity and the inventors that created/discovered electricity such as Thomas Edison and Nicola Tesla, create and decorate your own light up wands, draw your own city map and light it up using LEDs, using electricity circuit card  

Day 2 Science 

Making your own lava lamp, make your own wooden dinosaur, 

Day 3 LEGO

A full day of Lego fun – create own car, house of the future, earth quake simulator 

Day 4 Engineering

Create suspension bridge, make their own wooden jeep (bring home) , makeway competition, 

Day 5 Robotics

Dash robot challenge, ozobot wonder robot , Botzee robotics , Kami Gami game

This is truly one very fulfilling camp as there is never a dull moment, or a boring day as every camp day is so so different as it is a multi activity STEM camp from robotics, Lego, Science, Engineering, there is a different theme everyday. Even though Newton Show has started out as the pioneer science camp in Singapore, they have gone on to provide a myriad of activities to complement their main offering science and now has even expanded to outdoor and adventure camps! 

Check out their other camps if you have kids who have very keen interest in science , arts or cooking, or simply love the outdoors! 

With a camp fee starting from SGD 685, it is an all-inclusive camp – all materials, 2 snacks, lunch, t-shirt, photo, certificate and prizes included and they will provide daily video (the only camp in Singapore that sends you a daily video). I totally appreciate their effort to compile and update the parents on a daily basis of the happenings in camp (most of the photos shared in this blog post is credit to them) so that we can talk about it at the end of the day and share their excitement too! They have also given me feedback of my boys at camp, which I totally appreciate!

Memorable and Fuss Free birthday party with Newton Show

My kids had their fair share of birthday parties since young  – McDonald’s parties, futsal birthday parties, parties at the condo function rooms etc, so I was really thinking hard what could be a memorable birthday party for my soon to be 9 year old, wanted something fuss free, easy to organise, host and no cleaning there after! 

Since my kids have been to many Newton Show camps and absolutely love them (you can read all my Newton Show camps review here) why have I not thought of hosting a birthday party at Newton Show till now.

Did you know that they host birthday parties  and the choice of parties is really quite extensive  – of course they have their science party (which is what they are famous for) , Harry Potter Party, Superhero Party, Themed party (mermaid, little pony, frozen,unicorn etc) or their 2-hour All Inclusive Science Party!  I am sure there is something for every kid! 

So I chose the a Science Party for the small C for his 9th birthday celebrations. Even for the science party, there are many different types to choose from  – Dry Ice, Polymers, Nitrogen, Einstein, Science for smallest (2+ year old)  and the “All Inclusive” Party , depending on which package you choose, the science experiments/show run from 60 minutes to 2 hours ! (Word of advice, depending on the age group, choose a suitable length for the science show as I noticed at the 1-hour mark, my party guests were looking for snacks and food already)

The party was hosted on the second floor of 9 Mohd Sultan Road , and the space was really big and spacious! Really a comfortable setting for my party guests and parents to chill and hang out.

We were quickly introduced to the 2 Professors who were the hosts for the party  – Professor SkyFall and Professor Flame once all the guests arrived! 

We witnessed many fun science experiments, in fact some of the experiments stumped even an adult as I can’t explain the science behind it, from dry ice explosion to fire in hand, it was non stop fun for 1-hour! There are also lots of interaction with all the party guests so its not just watching but every single of my party guests get to try their hand too!  Even my teens were so entertained and engaged!  Not only that, all the party guests get to take home their own “snow” too! Once the show was done, the table was cleared for cake cutting ceremony and photo taking.

Newton Show parties includes science experiments, a giant Happy Birthday Banner, Personalised Digital Invitation Cards, Professional Actors and hosting for the cake cutting ceremony. Prices from $649. 

From a parent’s perspective, there are only 3 other things that I needed to do  

1. Order a birthday cake

2. Send out the e-birthday invites (prepared by Newton Show)  and

3. Bring in some additional food (pizza) and drinks for the guests.

Optional  (goodie bags for your guests) 

In my recent memories, this has to be one of the most stress free birthday parties I have ever organised for any of my kids, all thanks to Newton Show’s science show and party hosting.

So if you are looking for an educational, engaging, fuss free birthday party, you have to check out Newton Show’s birthday party.

Review: Impact Ergo-Growing Study Desk IM-G1000A-GY – Most compact model


With the 3 older siblings having their own ergonomic tables, small C has been incessantly asking for his own ergonomic study table since primary 1. I have been very hesitant to get small C his own study table, as there are already 3 “big” ergonomic tables at home and they do consume a lot space. I had tried to convince him to use his older siblings’ tables as not all the kids are home at the same time. I guess the kids are not very good at sharing and there is hardly any space to put small C’s books and belongings left. When I chanced upon Ergoworks more compart model Impact Ergo-Growing Study Desk IM-G1000A measuring at only 1m in length, (all the other models I have are at least 1.2m in length), I finally gave in . Now that small C is in primary 3, weighted assessments have started (no more honeymoon years) , I take that having a good table of his own is also a good way to build good habits of doing homework after school while catering to his growing up years. 

Without a doubt this will be the biggest ticket item, you will buy for your primary school child would be an ergonomic table. The single most important question for most parents, is there a need to spend on an ergonomic table? I have answered this question in my previous review post featuring another Ergoworks ergonomic table for small J 3 years ago. 

I have been using Ergoworks ergonomic school bags for the past 8 years for all my school going kids and I can vouched to its good quality and durability. These are my ergonomic bags review post for the past 8 years , post 1post 2post 3post 4 and the most recent upgraded the bags for the middle 2 kids at the start of this year post 5. This brand has been taking care of my 4 kids’ ergonomic needs since they started schooling. 

A bit about Ergoworks 

They are Asia leading brand in holistic ergonomic, posture care, and wellness solutions for the past 19 years. They offer an extensive range of high-quality, comfortable, and user-friendly ergonomic products, which is renowned for its functional features, health benefits, and professional services delivered to our customers. They provide total wellness and comfort to a diverse range of users across all age groups who desire maximum care for their body structure and posture. Their extensive range of products is professionally endorsed and recommended by both The Chiropractic Association (Singapore) and the Singapore Physiotherapy Association. They have since expanded to Malaysia as well, where they’ve formed a partnership with the Association of Chiropractic Malaysia, aiming to promote spinal health and posture among the community.

This is the model that I have gotten for small C Impact Ergo-Growing Study Desk IM-G1000A , I believe the most compact model in their range measuring 100cm (L) x 65cm (W) x 54-76cm (H) paired with IMPACT Kids Ergonomic Chair With Arm Rest IM-YB1108  

Ergonomic features:

The table’s height can be adjusted from 54 cm to 77 cm, suitable from 4 years old all the way to adults . The table should not be too high, otherwise they will be resting their hands awkwardly on the table and putting unnecessary stress on them. If the table is too low, they will be leaning forward too much and more likely to round their necks or hunch their backs. Adjusting the table’s height is straightforward and effortless, achieved by using a detachable lever to wind it up or down. For child safety, the lever can be securely stored away.

Beside table height adjustment, ergonomic table also feature a desk that tilts. This minimises the kids natural inclination to lean forward when writing or drawing, as it allows the desk to be brought closer to them. Desktop tilt angle adjustment is from 0 to 25 degrees to eliminate slouching and strain in neck and to cater to different tasks, such as reading, writing or drawing, as it requires a different angle for the posture (0-5°  for drawing and similar activities , approx. 10° for writing, 20°-25° for reading). Adjusting this angle depending on the task will provide your child with a better neck position, which will result in less tiredness and stress.

Despite being so compact at 1m in length, I am amazed by the generous drawer size for stationery storage and shelving storage too! 

The table edges are design to be child safe with rounded edge bumper. 

Some other additional features to this table is the bag hook, tablet/book holder and wrist support.

tablet/book holder 

Ergonomic chair 

IMPACT Kids Ergonomic Chair With Arm Rest IM-YB1108  being an ergonomic chair, it is made for spine protection, with accurate seat height adjustment and also back rest angle adjustment.

When adjusting the chair’s height, make sure your child’s feet are supported, meaning that your child’s feet should touch the ground.- If the kid is not tall enough, consider getting an ergonomic foot rest or some ergo chair models do come with built in foot rest like this model . 

The other feature I like most (which I find it as an upgrade vs the older models) is the Ergonomic Mesh Backrest which enables better airflow and for longer hours of sitting 


The armrest are also very versatile, allow for use with/without, when you are reading or resting you can use it ,when you are studying you can push it to the back and out of the way.

There is also a self locking dual use wheel 
Comes with a removable and washable cover for both seat and back rest so that they can be removed , washed for hygiene purposes. 

The Impact Ergo-Growing Study Desk IM-G1000A model comes with blue, pink and grey. As for the IMPACT Kids Ergonomic Chair With Arm Rest IM-YB1108  chairs, it comes in blue, pink and grey. Small C chose the combination of grey table and grey chair for a more gender neutral colour which will look less kiddish as the kid grow older. 

The prices quoted on the website includes 9% GST, delivery (no stair case charge) & installation (by their in house logistic and installation team) with no hidden costs or charges

All Ergoworks products come with free delivery, installation, responsive and a full suite on-site warranty against manufacturing defects and breakdown (excludes surface wear and tear / abuse) , for this value bundle, the warranty is 5 years. 

They have a 3000 square feet full ergonomic concept retail showroom, conveniently located in Marina Square Shopping Mall with friendly and professionally trained Ergonomic Specialists providing correct knowledge and information. Their showroom opens daily (inclusive of public holidays) from 11.30am to 9pm. I would advise to bring your child along to look at the many different models of ergonomic table and chair that they have to find the most suitable model for your long term investment.

The Value of Intercultural Early Childhood Education for Your Kids

In this age of interconnectivity, the world is much smaller than ever. People from different cultures will meet and interact, form relationships, and learn from each other in as early a stage as their childhood, especially in a country like Singapore where diversity is celebrated as a hallmark of society and multicultural values are ingrained at an early age. At home and in school, children benefit from these multicultural interactions, which truly help shape their character and development as they grow to be global citizens.

In school, intercultural early childhood education is offered to preschool children by institutions like Kinderland Singapore to foster a deeper appreciation of different cultures in a formal setting. Kinderland’s approach to education, which you can see in action through Kinderland SG’s official YouTube channel, recognises the value of a diverse and inclusive environment in a child’s formative years.

For parents who want to know about the unique learning opportunities that their children can expect from an intercultural early childhood education, here are the benefits that will come out of such an investment: 

1) Development of Early Socialisation Skills

One of the primary benefits of intercultural education is your child’s opportunity to develop and practise early socialisation skills at a high level. In a multicultural environment, your child can learn to collaborate, cooperate, and communicate effectively with their peers from diverse cultural backgrounds.

Some of the preschool activities that will help them practise their socialisation skills in such an environment include collaborative art projects, dramatic plays, and cultural show-and-tells. These activities will allow children to relate to each other and to get good at reading different types of social cues, all towards harmonious interactions with each other and the adults in their centre.

Through shared experiences in an intercultural school setting, your child can also develop a sense of belonging and mutual respect with other children. This will lay the foundation for positive relationships they’ll have with others from different backgrounds in the future.

2) Improvement of Language and Communication Skills

Exposure to multiple languages is another key aspect of the intercultural approach to education that will enrich the learning experience for your preschooler. In Singapore, where Malay, English, Tamil, and Singaporean Mandarin are the official languages, children are already given opportunities to develop proficiency in languages beyond their mother tongue. But in a school environment that encourages multilingualism as well as multiculturalism, your child will learn various ways to express themselves fluently and confidently, whether through songs, stories, or everyday conversations with their classmates and teachers.

Research has shown that early exposure to multiple languages enhances cognitive flexibility and linguistic awareness. These are vital competitive advantages in today’s globalised world. Through intercultural learning, you can give your child the ability to become an effective communicator and lifelong learner who can easily connect with others from different cultures.

3) Enrichment of a Child’s Cognitive Development

Cultural diversity in an early childhood school environment can also stimulate cognitive development in your child. Their exposure to a variety of perspectives and cultures will provide rich learning experiences that can’t be replicated in a monocultural setting.

Active participation in learning activities, such as exploring cultural artefacts and solving puzzles with multicultural themes, will sufficiently challenge your child’s cognitive abilities at an early age. With enough practice, your child can quickly develop their critical thinking skills while also strengthening their appreciation for different cultures.

4) Enhancement of a Child’s Self-Awareness, Empathy, and Emotional Intelligence

Intercultural approaches in early education paint a picture of hope for global peace. These stem from a school’s desire to cultivate self-awareness and empathy in children. The two qualities are also strong foundations for emotional intelligence—a vital ability when it comes to the development of a child’s leadership skills and mental resiliency. 

Through multicultural stories, role-playing activities, and discussions about cultural differences in their school, your child can learn to recognise and respect the uniqueness of each individual. This will help them both live in and propagate a culture of inclusivity where everyone—regardless of their ability, ethnicity, and gender—is welcome and encouraged to be true to who they are.

5) Promotion of Cultural Awareness

One of the most significant benefits of intercultural early childhood education is its role in promoting cultural awareness and appreciation among young children. In multicultural education settings, your child can be exposed to diverse cultural traditions, celebrations, and practices, which helps them develop a deep respect for the richness of various religious, national, and ethnic traditions from around the globe.

Whether the school is celebrating cultural festivals or exploring traditional cuisines from different countries, your child will be able to discover and learn to appreciate the inherent beauty and complexity of the world they share with others.

6) A More Creative and Healthy Learning Environment

Finally, intercultural education approaches in the early childhood years establish a more creative and healthy learning environment where your child can feel inspired, supported, and valued for who they are.

Perhaps this is the stage where they’ll want to create art, play a musical instrument, or learn to perform traditional dances. Regardless, you can rest assured that they’ll be supported and encouraged to explore their interests. This holistic approach to early childhood education will demonstrate how a child’s well-being intersects with the cultures and backgrounds of those around them. 

In summary, an intercultural early childhood education will play a vital role in nurturing young minds and preparing them for success in today’s diverse and interconnected world. Through this progressive approach to their formation in their early years, your child can thrive in a multicultural society like Singapore and become a compassionate and global citizen of tomorrow.

Appropriate Strategies to Help Children Become More Responsible

Teaching children to be responsible helps them be confident about their decisions and to be more certain about themselves. It also prepares them for adulthood, equipping them with essential life skills, like time and budget management. For many parents, this offers both an opportunity and a challenge. Fortunately, being responsible and accountable knows no age. These values can be learned at every phase of a child’s life. 

Even those who are just beginning to attend kindergarten in Singapore can learn how to be more responsible with the right approach. This includes letting them do age-appropriate tasks. If you want to nurture a more responsible child, explore these effective strategies. 

Assign Age-Appropriate Tasks

Young children thrive on routine and predictability, and you can use this as a means to introduce responsibility. Ask them to do simple tasks such as putting away toys after playtime and making their bed once they wake up. You can also let them do easy household chores like wiping the floor and tidying their room. These tasks instill a sense of responsibility as well as teach them basic life skills. Keep tasks manageable and praise their efforts to encourage participation.

As children enter the pre-teen years, they start seeking more independence and autonomy. At this age, harness this newfound independence while guiding them to become more responsible. For example, ask them to do laundry, wash dishes, or care for pets. All these chores teach pre-teens the value of contributing to the family and taking care of their environment.

Use Positive Reinforcement

Positive reinforcement is a powerful tool for shaping behavior. In this case, praising and encouraging your children when they complete tasks or demonstrate responsibility can go a long way in reinforcing those actions. Just make sure to be specific in your praise and highlight the effort your child has shown. This means mentioning the specific task after they’ve completed it.

Allow Them to Experience Natural Consequences

While it can be tempting to shield your children from failure or disappointment, allowing them to experience natural consequences is an important part of becoming more responsible. Just as long as they aren’t harmful to your child or others. So when they make poor choices or fail to meet their responsibilities, resist the urge to intervene or rescue them. Instead, allow them to face the consequences of their actions. Help them assess the situation and console your children when necessary. But remember to allow them to make the effort to resolve issues. Your role is to guide them.

Encourage Problem-Solving Skills

As mentioned previously, you need to let your children take the lead in challenging situations or when faced with consequences. Use them as opportunities for your child to solve problems independently. Particularly, pre-teens are in a stage when they’re developing critical thinking skills. Encourage them to think of solutions to the challenges they encounter. This can be as varied as resolving conflicts with siblings or finding ways to complete homework more efficiently. Whatever it is, give them room to find the solutions themselves. Just provide support and guidance as needed.

Teach Time Management 

As your child grows, they may experience increasing demands for schoolwork and extracurricular activities. This is the best time to help them learn basic time management and organizational skills. Assist them in creating schedules and routines to manage their time effectively. You can also provide tools such as planners or calendars to help them stay organized. 

This method can also work for young children. You can plot their daily schedules with them and block times for play, meals, naps, and simple tasks. It will help them feel more confident, knowing what they need to do next.  

Teach Budgeting and Money Management

Financial management and budgeting are crucial life skills that stem from children being responsible about their money. And this can start at a young age. Introduce the concept of money by teaching children how to identify different coins and bills along with their value. You can use everyday situations like grocery shopping to give your child an idea about the exchange of goods and money. 

When your child is old enough to receive a regular allowance, teach them how to budget their money. Help them understand the concept of budgeting by allocating a portion of their allowance to different categories, from snacks to toys. Make sure to teach them how to save and spend wisely, too. 

Model Responsible Behavior

One of the best strategies to help children become more responsible is through your actions. Children learn best by observing those around them. As their parent, you should model responsible behavior in daily life. Whether it’s completing chores, fulfilling obligations, or demonstrating honesty and integrity, your actions will set a powerful example for your child to emulate.

How you help children become more responsible varies at every age. When they’re young, you need a simpler approach and focus on introducing concepts of accountability and consequences. As they grow up, they learn best from their experiences and by tackling challenges independently. Throughout their journey, remember to be patient and consistent. With your guidance, you can empower your children to take ownership of their actions and become responsible individuals.

6 Types of Paediatric Palliative Care to Enhance the Quality of Life of Young Patients in Singapore


It’s a common misconception that palliative care and hospice care are one and the same. While they are related, the truth is that hospice care is a specific type of palliative care that focuses on end-of-life comfort for older patients. Meanwhile, palliative care itself is a comprehensive approach to improving the quality of life for individuals facing serious illnesses at any stage of their life and illness trajectory. It’s all about providing the patient and their family relief from the symptoms and stress of the illness, ensuring that the care they receive aligns with their values and goals. Additionally, palliative care also aims to support the patient emotionally, socially, and even spiritually.

In short, palliative care can be integrated alongside curative treatments and does not necessarily mean giving up hope for recovery.

What Is Paediatric Palliative Care and Who Can Receive It?

Paediatric palliative care specifically serves children facing a variety of serious illnesses. The World Health Organisation has four categories of the types of conditions that might require this level of care. One refers to life-threatening conditions with potential curative treatments, such as certain cancers or organ failures. Another pertains to conditions where premature death is inevitable, like severe congenital anomalies or genetic disorders. The next category comprises of progressive conditions without curative treatment, such as neurodegenerative diseases or advanced stages of HIV/AIDS. Finally, there’s a category of paediatric palliative care for irreversible but non-progressive conditions such as severe brain injuries or certain birth defects.

Regardless of the young patient’s diagnosis, the goal of paediatric palliative care remains the same: to provide holistic support to children and their families throughout the illness journey. This can be done in the following ways.

Primary Palliative Care

Primary palliative care refers to the foundational level of palliative care integrated into routine healthcare services. It is provided by facilities like a paediatric clinic or hospital and the healthcare professionals involved in the care of children with serious illnesses. This includes paediatricians, nurses, social workers, and other members of the healthcare team.

The goal of primary palliative care is to address the basic needs of children and their families, such as pain and symptom management and psychosocial support. It is often provided alongside curative treatments. This type of palliative care also aims to improve the quality of life for children by alleviating suffering and enhancing comfort. It involves discussions about specific goals and advance planning, which can help ensure that care is aligned with the child’s and family’s preferences and values.

Specialised Palliative Care

Specialised palliative care is provided by a multidisciplinary team of specialists with expertise in paediatric palliative care. This level of care is tailored to meet the medical, emotional, social, and spiritual needs of children facing serious illnesses, as well as their families. It is often recommended for children with advanced or complex conditions that require specialised symptom management, emotional support, and coordination of care.

To develop a personalised care plan, healthcare professionals and establishments that offer specialised palliative care first carry out comprehensive assessments of the child’s and family’s needs. Among the services involved in specialised palliative care are pain and symptom management, counselling, spiritual care, and bereavement support. These can be provided in various settings such as hospitals, clinics, and homes.

Hospital-based Palliative Care

There are cases where palliative care is implemented within a hospital setting, such as in inpatient units, outpatient clinics, and consultation services. This falls within the category of hospital-based palliative care. The medical teams that offer this type of care work closely with other healthcare providers to ensure coordinated and comprehensive care for children and their families.

Hospital-based palliative care is often provided to children with serious illnesses who require intensive symptom management and 24-hour monitoring, complex medical interventions, or end-of-life care. Hospital-based palliative care may involve regular consultations with palliative care specialists, access to specialised treatments and interventions, and support for families navigating the hospital system.

Home-based Palliative Care

Home-based palliative care, on the other hand, allows children to receive services in the comfort of their own homes. This enables the patient to be surrounded by their families and loved ones. This level of care is recommended for children who prefer to be at home or whose medical needs can be safely managed outside a hospital setting.

Among the provisions of home-based palliative care are nursing visits, medical equipment and supplies, and support for caregivers. This setup allows families to maintain a sense of normalcy and continuity in their daily lives while receiving the support they need to care for the patient. Home-based palliative care also promotes greater autonomy and empowerment for families by allowing them to be actively involved in their child’s care and decision-making process.

Hospice Care

Paediatric hospice care is a type of palliative care provided to children with life-limiting illnesses who are no longer receiving curative treatment and have a prognosis of six months or less to live. It focuses on maximising comfort and quality of life in the final stages of the illness and life. It is often provided in the child’s home or in a hospice facility.

The services included in paediatric hospice care are pain and symptom management, emotional and spiritual support, as well as assistance with practical needs such as respite care and bereavement support for families. This type of care aims to ensure that children and their families receive compassionate and dignified end-of-life care that honours their wishes and values.

Perinatal Palliative Care

Perinatal palliative care provides support to families facing a prenatal or neonatal diagnosis of a life-limiting condition. This level of care is designed to help families make informed decisions about their child’s care and prepare them for the challenges ahead. Perinatal palliative care may involve discussions about treatment options, advance care planning, and support for coping with grief and loss. It aims to ensure that families receive compassionate and holistic care throughout the pregnancy, birth, and postnatal period, regardless of the outcome.

The Overlapping Nature of Palliative Care

Paediatric palliative care is not static; it can evolve over time based on the child’s condition and the preferences of the family. Children may transition between different levels of care as their needs change, starting with primary palliative care and potentially progressing to specialised or hospice care as the illness advances. The level of care a patient needs may also vary based on factors such as disease progression, symptom severity, and family dynamics. Paediatric palliative care teams work collaboratively with families to assess their needs, provide appropriate support and interventions, and adjust the care plan as necessary.

By offering holistic and individualised care, paediatric palliative care aims to improve the quality of life for children with serious health conditions. Through it, the patient and their families can access comfort, support, and dignity throughout the illness journey.
