Pool It! (Monkees)

Just one of those father-daughter outings during my day off and when Fadelinah’s in school. Ooyah had been asking to go to the swimming pool ever since we returned from our holiday; as if the daily dips in the hotel’s swimming pool weren’t enough. So I relented and brought her to Jurong East Sports Complex last Wednesday, after having seen their rather large swimming complex every time I passed by it on the way to work.

It’s been a while since I last stepped inside a public swimming complex and was surprised to see that the entrance fees have not escalated that much; merely $1.50 and 80 cents per adult and child respectively. And not only was it popular with the locals, but also quite a few expats with their children in tow.

There are quite a few interesting features within the compound, especially the water slides, not that I had a chance to try them out. I accompanied the little girl to only certain places that she fancied, basically soaking inside the kids’ pool and the shallower end of the wave pool. The rented buoy proved redundant as we drifted only about a third of the lazy river’s length before Ooyah screamed her lungs out not wanting to pass underneath a waterfall. It was a good 3 hours worth of lazing around the pools before it started drizzling. Just in time for us to have a light meal inside KFC and watch the Albirex Niigata players practising from the grandstand.

Can’t wait for the new Safra clubhouse in Jurong West to open this April for me to bring her to the children’s gymnasium and largest indoor playground in Singapore.

  1. Tsk tsk tsk. Refer to first pic. Do you realize the bikini top isn’t COVERING what it’s supposed to cover?

  2. That’s the new way of wearing it lahhh … kinda like those people wearing hipster jeans showing their butt cracks.

  3. heheh – that’s so funny! That’s what happens when you leave the father to dress the daughter for the outing hehe – but wait lah, till she’s older, the father will be the first one checking her dressing before she leaves the house!

  4. P.S. Sometimes I think that Divya and Sarah are the Malay and Indian version of each other! With their “slim” bodies and similar faces – strange!

  5. Still young lah … I’ll turn into the in-house security guard when she turns 16.

    They do look similar in some of the photos.
