GymKraft Trial

We went for a trial gym class at GymKraft two Saturdays ago. GymKraft is located at the former Singapore Badminton Hall at Guillemard Rd so the space is really big. I was very excited to see that they have a 12 metre high aerial silks training facility. Really wonder if I’d be able to climb that high!

Some of the activities were similar to what Anya used to do in Little Gym, but with no music or learning aids (balls, sticks, bubbles, etc), focusing instead on fundamental gymnastic skills. The instructors were very enthusiastic and energetic and Anya definitely enjoyed herself.

While I’d love for Anya to develop flexibility and gymnastic skills, GymKraft is a little too far for me so we’d be looking at other options that are easier for us to get to. Meanwhile, Anya has her swimming to keep her fit so that’d have to do for now.┬áIf you’re interested in a GymKraft trial class, there’s a giveaway going on at Evespiration until 5 May that you can participate in!

When Billy Grows Up

So the other day I was wandering around Serene Centre thinking about getting a foot massage when I stumbled upon this little gem of a shop: When Billy Grows Up. I stepped in and spent so much time browsing and looking at all the charming things for sale that I had no time left for a foot massage!

When Billy Grows Up is a treasure trove of whimsical children’s clothing and accessories, most of which are from Australia. There are lots of little bits and bobs that I haven’t really seen anywhere else in Singapore. Definitely worth a trip down to this happy shop even if you don’t usually go to that area.
