Darian is 5 – Part 2

Day 2

Our first activity of the day began at Port of the Lost Wonder. This was our second visit to the water playground. We had quite a bad experience with Darian when we first visited POLW two years ago. Back then he was totally terrified of getting into the water. But now he has definitely outgrown that phase, in fact we actually need to cajole him out of the water. As for our little missy, it didn’t take her long enough to get into the pool. She seems a little more adventurous than her big brother. The kiddos had so much fun splashing with Papa Yap while I watched them played and captured all those priceless moments. Perhaps it’s time to get a water-resistant camera. 😉 Double Ds absolutely had a whale of a splashy great time there. Since then, Darian has been talking about a revisit. 🙂

Next, we brought double Ds to the Playcation event held at the Palawan beach. With a spending of 60 bucks at Sentosa, we were able to redeem two free play passes. However, the exhausted little missy was least interested about playing at all. She fell asleep soundly on Papa’s Yap arms while waiting for Darian to remove his shoes. So I ended up giving her pass to a random family. On the other hand, Darian was all ready for the next round of play. I really wondered where did he get all those energy from. The ball pool, slides, bouncing castle, rock climbing giant inflatables in the playtent kept Darian well entertained for the next 20 minutes.

After dinner at the Macdonalds, we continued with our third activity – the Luge rides. We were surprised to see how double Ds enjoyed the rides so much. We had two rounds of the Luge but they were still asking for more. They totally loved the thrills! Papa Yap was telling me how Darian kept asking him to go faster on the luge. Well Papa Yap and I did enjoy the rides too. But I didn’t like the skylift at all. So we took a bus up for our second round of Luge.

The last activity for the day was the Wings of Time show at the Palawan beach. Like the previous show, Songs of the Sea, Wings of time is yet another show of water, laser lights and fire effects. I thought it was really a fabulous way to end the night with beautiful fireworks and lights. 🙂

All of us were extremely tired after a long day outside. We snuggled into bed right after bath time. It was indeed a splendid family day at the beach. 🙂

Day 3

Like any other staycation, we would usually plan for a swim at the hotel on the last day. Double Ds were so happy to get into the pool. We brought them over to the Hard Rock Hotel where they could have both water and sand play. However, Dyann did not enjoy the sand play at all and was reluctant to walk on it. As for Darian, he was having loads of fun playing his sand play toys.

We concluded the last day of our staycation at the Trick Eye Museum. Darian was very enthusiastic about posing in front of the camera. He literally posed for almost every scenes. We could tell that he was totally enjoying it. Haha 🙂 Anyways Trick Eye Museum is similar to the Alive Museum, just of a different managing company with different photo concepts. Nevertheless, we still had a great time taking lots of funny silly photos. 🙂

It was absolutely a terrific staycation! Awesome!

Until now, Darian has been asking for another Sentosa staycation. 🙂

Port of Lost Wonder

***22nd May***

@Sentosa – Port of Lost Wonder

On the second day of Papa Yap’s off day, we brought Darian to Sentosa. There is this new water playground by the Palawan Beach called the Port of Lost Wonder. The site as compared to Wild Wild Wet is way smaller but it is still a pretty place for the kids.  And of course the admission is much cheaper too. Alright the best part is that there is free admission for the adults. Inside there is a pirate ship water play area, picnic area with foams provided for sitting and leisure activities for the kids.

After changing, we thought Darian would be much adapted to water playing after yesterday Zoo trip. However, we were very wrong. His reaction was worse than the day before. He totally refused to enter the water and kept crying. He looked much tensed. Papa Yap had to carry him around and encourage him to play. Little Darian kept saying that he is scared. According to Papa Yap, the little monster held him so tight and each time when they walked near any showering or squirting water, he would be shivering. We really do not know what the exact reason is. Perhaps it’s because I did not join him in the water and he felt insecure. After half an hour of coaxing and encouragement under the extreme hot weather, we decided to bring him to the sand play area instead.

This is his first time playing with sand. Not too bad. He did enjoyed playing with his sand play toys. Yet he seemed rather stiff sitting on the sand. Wahaha.. It was quite an amusing sight. 😉 He was quite sensitive with cleanliness. Little fussy boy kept sweeping off sand on his legs and hands. He didn’t even want to walk around barefooted. Haha… Papa Yap mentioned that Darian is exactly like me. What to do when I am his primary caregiver. 😉 Hah I assured Papa Yap that our boy would outgrown this stage pretty fast if we provided him with more of such outdoor experiences.

We left the place at 3-ish and headed back home. I seriously need a cool bath! Weather was damn hot man! Anyway it was still a good experience for Darian. Perhaps that next time when we visit the place, Darian would be all ready for water play and we might even have to drag him out of the place. Haha Yay Ahoy! 😉

Pirate themed water playground.

Oh boy what’s with your stiff smile? Haha…

Sand play time for the two boys.
