Shaws Preschool at Katong

No affliation just a satisfied parent who has got a lot of information from the forums and wants to share {edited by moderator} When we moved from the US, I was really worried about finding a good daycare/preschool for my then 2.5 year old. We had a misstep – we ended up in a daycare that we did not...

Container Veggie/Herb Gardening Success Stories

Any gardeners here? Have you had any success with growing veggies on your patio in pots? If yes, what grows well in this humid and hot temperature? Did you buy seeds or plants? Where did you buy them? I am ready to take the plunge. Also do you find hybrid container garden friendly tomato plants in S...

I've enrolled my eldest at Smartz Playhouse in Lucky Heights now so will see how we get on with the walk (I'm nearly 8 months pregnant so could be interesting!!)

Ahh! the uphill climb! Good luck! Smartz is a neat place with a nice local/expat mix.

For a while my daughter attended Smartz Playhouse on Lucky Heights. It was a decent school. I prefered it over Columbus. I liked the Principal and staff at Smartz.

Re: Muscle pain reliever ointments?

Any recommendations for pain relievers? I'm not that old but after working out at home. Sometimes in the bliss of the moment i stretch things too much. Its ridiculous to think i should go to the doctor each and every time after, right. Aside from salon-pas or any kind of patches, is there anything ...

Allergist recommendations please

Does anyone have recommendations for an allergist? Preferably someone out in the East.

After months of battling allergies and visiting GPs I think it is time to see a specialist

TIA

How do you pay? Can I ...
