iFly Singapore: Couples Take Flight!


Just before the year ended, Sean and I shared another experience together! We went to iFly Singapore!

While I’ve been here once before, it’s the first time for Sean. It’s still very exciting for me though!

Getting prepped for our flight!

When we climbed the stairs to get to the flight chamber, I noticed something was different about the place. In a short span of 9-10 months, iFly Singapore underwent a huge change!

Previously, the second level (where the flight takes place) was open to everyone and anyone who visited the place, whether you are flying or not. Now, there’s a barrier to separate the visitors from the flyers. And I can see why. There were so many people just standing there watching us fly!

It’s also for security reasons too, I guess, seeing how things are sometimes left unattended while we were gearing up for our flight.

There are also proper lockers available now. Initially, I thought the lockers were free for use, that it came as part of the deal when one purchased the tickets… But no. You’ll have to pay an additional $3 to use it. Thankfully for us, we had Waiwai’s husband to help us watch our belongings!

All geared up and ready to fly!

This time round, I flew at a much higher wind speed, which sent me in all sorts of directions at the first flight. I couldn’t quite control my body as well. I somehow backed into the glass, and silly me thought it was a stunt the instructor was pulling (he mentioned he might help us with some tricks earlier), so I didn’t use my legs to push. Which led to me being in this strange flying position for a while…

Yes, I flipped over. Haha!

I won’t deny though. The flipping from flying to sitting and back to flying position was pretty fun. Haha! It was definitely something different!

Sean’s turn!

It’s true when they say ‘opposite attracts’ know? My cool as cucumber husband looks like this while taking the roller coaster too. He’s so unfazed by anything that cause me to get on adrenaline high! Love it! :D

After our flights were over, we rushed off to pick the children up from school. Yes, the mommy-daddy duties were back on once our feet touched the ground at the end of our second flight. It also marked the end of our almost two weeks long of couple time.

I know it’s only January, but I can’t wait for December already! I love spending time with the husband 24/7!

Thank you for yet another lovely time, iFly Singapore!

Delifrance and their Award-winning Heritage Croissant

Media Invite

We were treated to a delicious French royal high tea with Delifrance’s Award-winning Heritage Croissant!

The Heritage Croissant isn’t like any other croissant out there in the market. It was crowned the winner of the Superior Taste Award 2013, garnering three Golden stars, making it the only food product in Singapore to ever receive the highest honor!

Now, among all the different bread types available, croissant is one of my favourites. And truth be told, not many bakeries can get it right. It is almost always about, but not quite there for me. The only place that hasn’t disappoint me thus far is Delifrance. I was honestly wondering how much better their croissant can get, when it’s already number one in my eyes!

But lo and behold…

At first glance, you might be thinking, “What’s so special? It looks just like every other croissant in the market!”

Well, the difference, and a major one at that, is when you bite into it.

Crispy and flaky on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. The contrast in bite texture is huge but oh so complimentary to one another. It’s literally the best of both worlds in one single bite!

And the heavenly, freshly baked scent that tingles your sense of smell before you even see the Heritage Croissant… it’s mouth-watering!

If you’re looking to get something more out of the Plain Heritage Croissant, fret not! Delifrance launched four special flavours (two of which is limited edition!) just for you!

Sweet and savoury flavours for your pick!

Almond Poulet ($7.50)

Turkey Bacon & Chicken Ham ($7.50)

Hazelnut Chocolate with Almond Flakes ($3.90)

Cream Cheese with Strawberry Toppings ($3.90)

My personal favourites are Turkey Bacon & Chicken Ham and Cream Cheese with Strawberry Toppings! Hehe.

Throughout the time we were there, Blake had been very intrigued by the short video of the croissant making process. He kept asking whoever would listen to him to turn the volume up. Haha! Then this caught his attention…

He kept telling me that he wanted to cut the croissant, and asked me to help him so that he could make something out of it. Haha! It was hilarious and I had to tell him to be patient as it wasn’t time for it just yet.

Whilst waiting, he took the chance to explore the photobooth when everyone was eating.

And when the time finally came…

He sliced…

… added ingredients…

… and gave his finishing touch.

Ta-dah! Blake’s very own sandwich!
It has turkey ham, chicken, cheese, almond flakes,
honey mustard sauce, cream cheese and hazelnut chocolate!

And it was made specially for daddy!

Unknown to us at that time, probably cos I wasn’t paying much attention, there was an ongoing sandwich making competition! By the time the judges went round to check out all the DIY sandwiches, ours was gone.

We ate it all!

All I could offer were photos I had taken earlier (as seen above).

But guess what?

Our little chef won! Woohoo!

Blake took home the grand prize that day and I’m so proud of him! :D

But instead of him going up to receive his prize, he sent Nakayla to accept it on his behalf as he didn’t like being in the limelight. He repeatedly said, “Ask meimei go!” Haha! And Nakayla was more than happy to assist!

Once all the photo-taking were done, Nakayla turned to me and handed me the prize before running off to find Sean and Blake. Haha! Oh, my kids! I love how different yet similar they are!

Thanks for having us, Delifrance!
We definitely had one amazing afternoon!
