Picnic In The Park: Pasir Ris Park


Two more weeks from September school holiday, and then 2.5 months of school days, and then after that will be the loooo……..ng school holiday before the boy goes to P3. We’ve been busy these days, and daddy has to go for business trips quite often (and that means there are only me and the boy at home), so we always try to go out on weekends and holidays. When we have no idea of where to go, the easiest thing to do is just to pack some food and toys and drive 10 minutes away from our house to Pasir Ris Park. Sometimes we just bring simple snack like biscuit or milk and water and go  to the park. If we don’t bring enough water, we juts buy our favorite drink at the vending machine near the play area (there are many vending machines inside the park, usually near the toilet there is a vending machine).

Our favorite spot is Pasir Ris Park Playground. The nearest car park is car park E (pay 50 cents for every 1/2 hour), but the best thing is to park in car park F (because it’s free………….and only 5 minutes walking to the play area).


Our simple menu: brown rice, bandeng presto, and tempe bacem for me and daddy. White steam rice with sausage omelette and bandeng presto for the boy. Very easy to prepare……….


Don’t forget plenty of water and milk, and I also added salad (just cut cucumber and tear some lettuce and spread  thousand island on top of them………preparation is less then 5 minutes) to our simple menu.

The boy said he wanted to bring his new ball (which we got from attending NTUC special event), and so with just a ball and a picnic basket…………we were ready to go………..


Yeah…..we’re going for a picnic!

What I love from this playground is that it has many gazebos, big and small. We chose the small ones because there were only three of us. We sat on the mat so it would feel like real picnic, hahaha………


We were starving, so let’s eat…….Everything is more delicious when we eat on the open air.


Eat then play


Play with the ball, but only for a while because the boy couldn’t resist this temptation:

Pasir Ris Park

The spider web obstacle challenge………..He’s a pro in this spider web challenge, and he can climb very fast now……..I love this because it strengthen his upper body

Yes, the obstacle challenge play area is totally opened by now! I think this playground has finished its renovation work, and all area is opened by now. If you go by bus, ride bus number 403 from Pasir Ris MRT and just look for the playground on the right side. The bus will make a U turn and go back to the interchange, and you must alight after the bus makes a U turn. This huge playground is really worth to visit.


The price is to slide down in this silver long slide……….


The boy asked us to time him whenever he was on one of the obstacle challenge. As you can see, daddy was with the stop watch (on the phone) timing the boy. He would asked then: “What is my time? Ho many seconds?”


Boys like ropes………..hahaha……..all these ropes in the playground are really good additional items to play with.


He finished all the ropes challenge under 15 minutes

In the west, there is West Coast Park Playground. In the east, we have Pasir Ris Park Playground. Both are big and children need to spend at least 2 hours to play. I like Pasir Ris Park Playground better because it has more shaded areas. There are many trees near the play area so it doesn’t feel so hot even though the sun is at the top of our head, and the most important thing is there is toilet facility near the playground.

After 2 hours of playing, we rushed to the car because looked like the rain was about to come. I really don’t understand the weather lately……………….hot sun then rain then hot sun again then the rain comes again……………….sometimes we just can’t plan where to go because of the unpredictable weather nowadays. But anyway, this newly renovated Pasir Ris Park Playground is really worth to visit.

Hi there. I'm from Indonesia but now live quite far away from my home country. I love cooking for my family. I learned how to cook for the first time from my mom and I believe that mom's cooking is always the best, and I do hope that my son will feel the same too even though he grows up so fast. I love Indonesian food as I grew up with it, and I promise to myself that my son, although he doesn't live in Indonesia right now, will always like and enjoy authentic Indonesian food. I make this blog so that my family will always remember our togetherness and happy time that we had, are having, and will have when we eat together and have good memories about a mother's love through her dishes. Hopefully these recipes will help other people to make healthy home cooked dishes for their families.
