Fun For Free Friday: Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden

The weather these days hasn’t been too good. Hazy, to be precise but the little girl desperately wants to go out and play. So, when the PSI shows an OKAY level, I will normally bring her out and just recently, we went over to Jacob Ballas Children’s Garden to have a little bit of fun and be close to nature.

Jacob Ballas is Asia’s first children’s garden and it aims to provide a place for children to play, explore and be happy in. The two-hectare garden is open to children up to 12 years old. Admission is free though the children have to be accompanied by an adult.

Faith and Belle spent about two hours in the garden and we learnt about the magic of photosynthesis and the Epiphytes and spent some time in the Fantastic Forest.

So, oxygen is given out during photosynthesis…

Of course, waterplay is very much part of the package when I go out these days. Faith kept chanting ‘waterplay’, ‘waterplay’ and well they had fun with the water all right.

Since Food for Thought is just round the corner, we popped by for lunch. By then the kids were getting a tad restless but we did have a good meal. I recommend Chicken Laksa, Slow Roasted Pulled Pork and Laksa Leaf Mushroom Risotto. Yummy!

Note: There are a few more areas in the Garden that we haven’t explored! Oh my!
