Our First Trip to Turf City

Shuttle Bus service fromToaPayoh

I received time table of free shuttle bus service from Sam. (Thanks.) (I didn’t know there is such service from Toa  Payoh Interchange.)

Anyway, I decided to make a trip down to Turf City, a place that I have never been before mainly due to I am think of transferring Yvette to Marsden Swim School there. (Traveling there will be easier for me with that shuttle bus service.)

I am glad I have gone.

We left home around noon. We took a bus to interchange instead of walking because it was drizzling. I brought my lunch from Subway and eating them while waiting for the shuttle bus. (Of course my Yvette had a share of it.) The shuttle bus service was reliable. It arrived sharply at 1 pm and we reached Turf City around 1.15 pm. Cool ! The ride only took us 15 mins. The first impression I have for Turf City was; it was so run down. I think not much renovation was done before it was transformed into a shopping mall.

We entered the mall and were welcomed by TCS Superstore. I managed to pick up a book for Yvette and a book for Hubby. I wanted to browse the toys but Yvette wasn’t co-operative. So after I made payment for my purchase and I proceeded with my mission.

Books I brought

Although I couldn’t  spend much time looking at the time, still I manage to find some good toys on the shelves.

Some good toys. These toys only cost S$20++ But I am not sure of the quality.

These puzzle aren't cheap. I have the alphabet puzzle that I brought from SSC for only $7.90 but it is selling at S$9.90 here.

The school was not too difficult to find. It was located outside the main building. It looks exactly the same what the Holland Branch. I did not manage to enquire the class schedule but I did call Jane to check out on the transfer. I am still considering of transferring Yvette. I am not sure will she be comfortable with the “new place” although it look the same to me. I am not sure will she be comfortable with the instructor too.

The pull factors:

Traveling will definitely be easier. There will be a walking distance from bus stop to the school. So if it rains, it will be a task for me. In Turf City, I could feed Yvette right after class at the coffee shop.  I actually give snack to Yvette right after her swim class at Holland. So she won’t be hungry.

Oh well, guess it will be a tough decision I have to make. Should I, shouldn’t I?

IMG_1004We went up to Fidgets at 4th floor. I have wanted to visit this indoor playground for long.

This round, Yvette wasn’t keen at all. I think it  hadcollided into her nap time. She was rubbing her eye but she just couldn’t let herself sleep. (Too much fun being out, so she didn’t want to sleep I guess.) She just sat down to where ever I have placed her and refused to move around. I decided to bring her to the eating area to feed her lunch. (She shared a sandwich with me about 1.5 hr ago.) After feeding her half of the portion of porridge I brought along, she wanted to have milk. So we went to the nursing room.

Comparing Fidgets with the two indoor playgrounds (here and here) I have brought Yvette, I don’t find the playground for the older kid is challenging, perhaps the height. But it was really spacious. I do like the Little Fidgets’ corner for the younger toddler like Yvette. Cosy! I love the nursing room, simple and neat. I like the toilet too. Spacious and clean. The eating area is very spacious as well. No wonder they name themselves as Singapore’s largest indoor soft play structure for children from 0-10 years. It’s indeed large and spacious.

We didn’t play much. This trip was really for feeding and resting purpose. (There was no nursing room in Turf City and I only found out the coffee shop after I left Fidgets.)

I almost lost when I am getting out of Fidgets. I just couldn’t find the way out. I took the escalator and went up to Fidget again. But well this round I came down with another two mummies and overhead they mentioned about Giant. So Fidgets was near to Giant? I managed to locate Giant and walked toward the bus-stop stand for the shuttle bus service. I was just in time to catch the 3.00 pm shuttle bus and headed home.

P/S: The shuttle bus timing is very reliable. So it will easy for me to estimate my travelling time.
