Last week the kids were given a treat with a 2D1N Staycation at D’resort.  We decided on a midweek stay as it would be less crowded and the kids could have more time to enjoy the facilities at the resort.

We were given the Beach Cove Duplex room for our stay. Suitable for 4 adults of a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. This  52 SQM  double story room came with a  queen size bed and sofa bed.

It was a toss up to who would be sleeping on the bed or the sofa bed for the night as everyone was aiming for the comfy bed.

The staff at D’resort generously prepared a snack box for the kids and they were digging into it when they spotted it in the room.

The snacks and free wifi didn’t occupy them for long as we soon left for our first activity at Pasir Ris Beach.

Stand Up Paddling was something new that the kids tried out that evening.  It was a really interesting experience for all as it was the first time they were on a surf board and tried paddling.

The weather was perfect.  It wasn’t too hot nor the tide too low to go out paddling.

Before we could hit the waters the instructor started off by showing us how to handle the paddle.  It was important that the kids learn how to place their hands on the paddle and work the board to the direction they needed to go.

Safety first before everything else. The kids were shown how to secure themselves to the board and the procedures that they had to follow getting in and out of the water.

Before long our paddling session was up and it was time for us to return back to the resort to wash up and prepare for the next activity- bowling.

After a quick dinner we headed over the bowling alley for a few rounds of bowling. All the kids can bowl so it was fun taking turns at the lane that was assigned to us.

It was really nice that they could tailor the guard rail guards to come into/out of play based on each player’s specifications. The bowling alleys of today are certainly more sophisticated as compared to the ones of yesteryear. It was nearly midnight when we returned to the room after the game.

On the 2nd day we headed over to Wild Wild Wet for some splashing good time. It was the 2nd time that the kids were at this Water theme park and were extremely delighted to be able to have fun at this place.  The last time we visited the place was more then 2 years ago. Back then Tiger girl was not tall enough to go on most of the rides. This time round she is taller then the 1.00 m mark and could go on some of the family rides together with me and her brothers.  The park wasn’t that crowded as we went on a weekday and we had the chances to go on the different rides many times as there wasn’t much queue.

The kids and I had a fun and entertaining time at D’Resort and before we knew it our staycation had come to an end. Thanks for the invitation D’resort.

Best care for wounds with Nexcare Sensitive Skin

Being the only girl with two elder brothers, Tiger girl has grown up loving spending time outdoors at playgrounds.  She loves being in the park  climbing structures and constantly challenges herself to be able to keep up with her elder brothers.

This girl is quite the daredevil and is not afraid of heights. She gets an adrenaline rush for attempting what may seem to be the near impossible for her age. As a result, she often ends up with grazed hands and knees when she misses her footing and slips and falls. Ouch!!

Even though Tiger girl has quite a high tolerance for pain however sometimes the oozing blood from the wounds get to her and she she ends up bawling due to the pain that she is experiencing.

My Experience 

As an experience mom of 3, I always carry plasters  with me so that I handle boo-boos immediately when they happen.

The boys used to get scraps and cuts  very often when they were younger  if they fell at the playground or accidentally hit against a playscape. The plasters  kept within my wallet get used up very quickly.

I have tried different  brands of bandages  with the boys.  The plasters that we used either stuck  too tightly to the skin and  made the boys squeal when it was taken off or   doesn’t even adhere to the skin.

The experience that I had with 3M Nexcare Sensitive  Skin Bandages, Adhesive Pads and Tape had been really eye opening.

3M Nexcare Sensitive Skin Plasters, Pads and tape

 

The latest  bandages  from Nexcare Sensitive Skin Range by 3M are specially crafted and  does not cause any comfort or redness from the peel caused by sensitive reaction to the bandage during removal.

3M ™ Sensitive skin silicone adhesive allows the force of removal to be experienced in the adhesive. This new range of product  literally “falls off” without tugging at the sensitive skin of young old or fragile.

I have been impressed with the  how durable the  Nexcare Sensitive Skin  bandages are and how easy and painless it is to remove them.

I do not need to endure any more hassles of my  kids screaming in pain when bandages are removed as their skin is not tugged on during the removal process.

You can  watch the Sensitive Skin Demo below to see how gentle the 3M Nexcare bandages are as compare to other leading brands in the market.

 

 

Tiger girl’s experience with Nexcare

My girl gets scrapes quite often. I  normally put a plaster to cover the wound and prevent it from being infected when it occurs.

With the assortment of sizes of plasters one can easily find an appropriate size to cover the wound.  Being clinically designed for sensitive and fragile skin it didn’t make her skin turn red when it was removed.

What we liked about the 3M Nexcare plasters

  • Made from Hypoallegenic material
  • Latex Free
  • Ease to peel out from the packaging. Even Tiger girl could  put on the plaster herself without hassle
  • Water and moisture resistant.
  • Available in three different sizes
Nexcare Adhesive Pads and tape

Recently Tiger girl got some scrapes on her hands when she fell while running around in the park. As you see (from the picture below ) quite a large area of her arm was injured.  A single plaster would not be large enough to cover the whole surface area and several plasters would have to be used to prevent an infection from occurring. I decided to use their adhesive pads instead of sticking multiple plasters on her hand.

To ensure that the adhesive pad remained snugly on Tiger girl’s arm I used the tape to reinforce it. This tape is extremely easy to use and you do not even need to use a scissors to tear it off from the roll.

What we liked about the 3M Adhesive Pads and Tape

  • 3M™ Sensitive skin silicone adhesive allows the force of removal to be experienced in the adhesive making the removal pain free.
  • the tape is easy to be torn and doesn’t cause chafing of the skin.
  • Easy to re-position without losing its adhesive properties.

This new range of 3M Nexcare Sensitive Range is not only for kids. It was  formulated for individuals with sensitive skin.   It is ideal  for the  very old, very young, those with fragile skin due to  chronic illness, skin with lots of hair, skin prone to adverse reactions from adhesives or skin disorders such as eczema.

It certainly receives a thumbs up from me and Tiger girl.
