    I really love your blog.
    Btw, r u recommend visit to Taiwan – Okinawa on end of Sep-Oct?

    I will travel to there next year with my 2yo toddler.

  2. FANG TING LOW says:

    Hi, my baby is one year old. Normally we feed her porridge at home, have not tried “outside food”. How should I settle her food when we go travelling? Thanks!

  3. FANG TING LOW says:

    ok got it. Thanks alot! =D

  4. LP says:

    where did you get those toddler jackets for your trip? im bringing my lit one (6 months) to europe this may, looking for coldwear as we are going up to alps.

    • bumblebeemum says:

      I usually borrow from my friends. I only bought one for my elder boy when he was 4 years old because it can be used for longer then. We got it from Winter Times during a sale. Otherwise, I heard from readers that Qoo10 is a good place to get winter wear, you may want to try. 😉

      • LP says:

        Thanks :) will try Qoo10. any good tips to take note for bring 6 months baby out to cold country for holiday ? :p

        • bumblebeemum says:

          6 months! Hmmm… Bring your cough, cold and fever medications. Make sure baby is well layered. Use a baby carrier to keep the baby close to your body for warmth rather putting the baby in a stroller. Get a blanket to wrap around the carrier with the baby inside to protect the baby from the cold.

        • bumblebeemum says:

          And ermm.. buy travel insurance that can cover PD visits after coming back to Singapore. (Touch wood, but I’m just being pragmatic.)

          • LP says:

            Thanks!! I think i will be damn kiasu and bring all stuffs there. Better to bring abit more than than don haf. Ya i read about the post on the insurance that cover PD visits after coming back, will check with my insurance agent about this! i didnt know about this before that, i tot they will all cover 😀

            • bumblebeemum says:

              Yeah, when my kids were younger, we brought truckloads of medication on our trips like their ventolin puffs. I know of people who bring nebuliser even – depending on whether your baby has pre-existing conditions that require such special medication. The change in temperature can easily trigger very bad cough and phlegm in young babies.

              • LP says:

                Yeah.. think 3/4 of my luggage will be full of her stuffs esp she is on FM. still thinking whether i should buy FM from there or bring my own. 😐

  5. Deon says:

    Hi, may I get your advise on when to renew passport for kid? My daughter has hers made when she was around 1.5 years old. Now, she is 3 years old. Is there a new for me to bring her to check with ICA?

    • bumblebeemum says:

      My children’s passports have a validity of 5 years. Check the expiry date on your daughter’s passport. If it is nowhere near expiring, you can continue using it. ICA will send a letter to ask you to renew it when it is due for renewal.

  6. Joe says:

    Hi love to Read your blog , do you bring your kid to jab before u bring them to travel ? I bring mine to Bali and Thailand and get a virus Attack like diarrhoea symptoms after we reach back home . Taiwan we have no issue any way to avoid ?

    • bumblebeemum says:

      I don’t bring my kids for jabs but yeah, my kids fall sick quite often when we travel. Sometimes it’s the level of hygiene, sometimes it’s the flucuation in temperature. Our kids are just not used to it since they grow up in Singapore which is so clean and temperature doesn’t fluctuate much. So it’s a bit hard to avoid. Just have to pack probiotics and standard fever, cough and flu meds. And buy travel insurance just in case we need to see the doctor during / after the trip.

  7. I came across your blog about traveling with kids in singapore! Awesome write ups.

  8. jacqueline says:

    love your blog!
    I have brought my son to Brisbane, perth and recently Melbourne.
    I am thinking of Sapporo next year on his 3rd birthday. Do you think there are lots of entertainment for him there?

    • bumblebeemum says:

      Which month will that be? Entertainment for kids in Hokkaido is kind of different from entertainment for kids in, say, Tokyo. In Hokkaido, there are no major theme parks for example. There’s a lot more nature and there are huge parks for kids to run around and sometimes the parks have playgrounds. The zoos in Hokkaido are also very nice with very reasonable admission fees. My boys also enjoy cable car rides in the scenic areas.
