Valentines Day was a day set aside by society to celebrate romantic love. This day has a different meaning for me as I believe it doesn’t have to be love between a man and women, but one that encompasses the whole family. The meaning of Valentines has been commercialized and as a result romantic love has been emphasized on instead of the love for the family which should be the true focus.
This year I decided on doing something different and celebrate with the kids instead. What better way to spend the weekend then letting the kids try create memories from new experiences.
I brought them to Lilliputt to try out the 18-hole indoor putting range at East Coast Park. It was the first time that tried putting and they really enjoyed themselves.
They were each given a colored ball and shown how to hold the putters properly.
It was really interesting to see each hole decorated to look like various places of interest in Singapore. At most stations the kids have to guide the ball up a ramp so that it could go through the different pathways to reach the hole.
It was extremely interesting as one no idea where the ball would go after if had enter the structure via the ramp. The ball could exit from which hole in the structure.
Doggie boy found this particular station extremely amusing. He deliberately lingered at this station so that he could see the train transporting the ball from point A to point B several times.
The kids took about 1.5hr to complete the 18 holes.
