Home >> Thoughts >> 2014 Round-up!

It’s the last day of 2014 and I figured I should get my lazy bum up and write a post to end off the year! Okay.. It’s been a lazy year for me as far as updating this blog is concerned, but it wasn’t a lazy year for me overall.  Part of the reason I didn’t blog much this year was because I went back to work part-time for a while, and I also took on a writing assignment (as in a real paid writing assignment to be published on paper, not just blogging) which took up my precious quickly-do-some-writing-after-the-kids-finally-sleep hours at night which I would otherwise have spent updating my blog.

Excuses excuses… But I just want to say a big THANK YOU to all of you who are reading this despite my lack of updates! This year, I encountered more people coming up to ask me, “Are you bumble bee mum?” (even in Japan.. *shock*) I’m thinking.. ‘I hardly update my blog anymore and people can recognize me?!’  Because of YOU, I decided I should be more hardworking and keep my blog more updated in 2015!

2015 Resolution #1:  Update my blog more often

Okay.. So let’s look back at how Bumble Bee Mum and her kids spent 2014 (if you are interested.. If not, I guess you could close your browser now.)

We started the year with a BANG with MY’s first birthday party at Kidz Amaze Toa Payoh.

Our favourite hangout for the year was Cool De Sac which opened in March at Suntec City. I think I was there like, 20 times throughout the year.  They should give me a VVIP card or something.. :p

We spent a LOT of time in Japan this year, visiting Hokkaido twice during the June and December holidays.  And I also started a Japan Travel Blog, do visit it if you are planning to visit Japan. :)

The indoor playground scene in Singapore was absolutely buzzing this year.  Besides Cool De Sac, other new playgrounds that opened this year included:

2015 Resolution #2:  Visit the newly opened Happy Willow and Hokey Pokey! DONE!

Other than indoor playgrounds, we also have a new attraction for kids, KidsSTOP at Singapore Science Centre. This is at the top of my to-visit list… Ah, so many places to visit, so little time (and money >_<).

2015 Resolution #3:  Visit KidsStop DONE! (Read about it here.)

Trick Art is all the rage this year.  I love Trick Art and have visited Trick Art museum in Korea (read about my visit in this post) and Japan (read about my visit in this post).  All of a sudden, BOOM, two Trick Art museums opened in Singapore!  One is the Trick Eye Museum at Resorts World Sentosa and the other is ALive Museum at Suntec City.

2015 Resolution #4:  Visit the Trick Art Museums

We have also been travelling across the Causeway a lot this year.  At the start of the year, we stayed in the then-newly opened Legoland Malaysia hotel during MY’s first birthday as kind of a continuation from his Lego birthday party. (What?! I didn’t blog about this? I’m seriously procrastination QUEEN.)

MF and MY also conquered indoor playgrounds at JB, including one that opened in February at Sutera Mall.

Looking back, it has been a pretty happening year, hasn’t it? Here’s looking forward to 2015 and more excitement and fun for the kids!
