After much secrecy, the boys were kept in the dark, we planned it out. The teachers were informed and since it was last week there werent any studies to miss so it wasn't a problem.
Boys found out on the day we left, were literally jumping up and down with excitement. I was a bit scared at first, because Singapore is known to be pretty expensive and this is the first time after a long time I will be doing most of the travelling around a country alone with the boys so I was praying I didn't get lost.
We booked a family room at Parc Sovereign Hotel on Albert street, as it was near to the Hospital ,where hubby had his conference. The room was small but nice and clean and with a nice quite pedestrian street. The famous Bugis street market was just 5 -8 minute walk and there were 3 MRT train stations just walking distance near the hotel.We each had a ezlink card, little one didn't need one and much to his embaressment was to be carried while going through the gate,LOL. With the help of a few apps and thehalalfoodblog.com, I was able to find delicious halal food , and I have to say there were plenty of choices. One of our favorites was I Am .... on Haji Lane and ZamZam in Kampong Glam.

Ok Now , I have to say getting around singapore was so much easier than I thought and people were really helpful, especially being a mother alone with two small kids. Before Hubby headed to the conference, we went to the Singapore Science Centre, which was a hit with the boys. They had an Avengers station, although I have to admit I was more of the superhero buff than all three boys (hubby included)combined. You really need a full day to enjoy this place to the max.

Before I left for Singapore I visited lots of websites to look for places to take the boys. One of them had a post on Bounce!.

After hubby finished his conference we headed to Universal Studios on a Friday. The ride to sentosa on a cable car was a treat it self. Universal studios was fun and enjoyable, little guy was able to ride most of the rides while little one was very happy to see Elmo and the minions and hubby enjoyed the waterworld show . My advice, book tickets online or at the airport before heading there and try going on a weekday to beat the crowd.

Over all , as the boys say one of the best holidays they had !
Ps, I document and write about my travels as a way to help others, I travel on a certain budget and also look for great places for the kids to enjoy as well for the adults to relax and enjoy and spend time with the kids. And of course the food.
