Eat.Play.Love Cafe

This is the place where you can eat, play and fall in love all in one place. Yes, the name of the café spells it all! This dining venue has been very popular with families with young toddlers. It provides a cozy dining place with lots of things to eat, lots of things to see and lots of things to play. We had a chance to drop by Eat.Play.Love café for lunch after our Kampung Glam Heritage Trail.

We were here on a Christmas day, early in the morning as soon as the café opened. There were 4 or more families, plus a few young couples queuing outside of the café. We strongly recommend that you make a reservation if you planned to visit this café.  We were greeted by a very friendly staff and each of the visitors was assigned to our seats in a very orderly manner, starting from visitors with reservations.

Kampong Glam

Where would you go in Singapore in order to avoid the crowds on a festive holiday? 

We, the Poks have decided to go on a heritage trail at Kampong Glam. Yup! We went for a slow morning walk around the Malay Heritage Area. The area was quiet in the morning and it was just the perfect time for Daddy Pok to snap some really nice pictures to add into his photography album. Kampong Glam is a place where it exhibits rich Muslim culture and it is home to some glamorous historical architectures which would feast one’s eye.

We parked our car at Aliwal Street and started our journey there. There is a public car park opposite Eat.Play.Love Café and it is free on public holidays. We headed towards Sultan Gate to our first stop – The Malay Heritage Centre.

1. The Malay Heritage Centre

The Malay Heritage Centre
The Malay Heritage Centre was once the Istana Kampong Glam, or also known as the Sultan’s Palace. It is now housed to a heritage museum showcasing the culture of the Malay community. We shall visit the museum when the boys are older and would appreciate history. The compound of the heritage centre was big enough for the boys to roam around. It has a water fountain and a small garden showcasing various herbs, spices and plants which was traded in the olden days.

AHOY! The pirates are coming!  @ The Malay Heritage Centre

We then exited the Malay Heritage Centre at Kandahar Street and headed towards Masjid Sultan.

Thomas & Friends Stage Show 2013

“They're two they're four 
they're six and eight 
Shunting trucks and hauling freight 
red and green and brown and blue 
they're the really useful crew……”

These lyrics are no stranger especially to those parents who have toddler boys. It is the ever famous toddler show theme song – Thomas & Friends. Vann and Kye are big fans of wheels and trains, and they truly love Thomas & Friends! Since there was a free stage show held in City Square Mall in conjunction of the Christmas Holidays 2013, we definitely would not miss it.

We are usually the early birds. If we have outings during the weekend, we would leave the house early to have a nice brunch, and then followed by our planned activities. This is the way how we avoid crowds and parking problems. And here on an early Saturday morning in City Square Mall, we saw the festive Thomas & Friends stage standing peacefully in the quiet mall.

The stage of the show. Where is Thomas?
