I am excited to announce the launch of my new family travel blog, Mum on the Move – www.mumonthemove.com
This family travel blog covers Hong Kong, Asia and the rest of the World and is full of family-friendly travel tips and knowledge. We have kicked off the blog with a variety of articles including: Child-friendly wine tasting in the Margaret River, Singapore’s Best Family-friendly Attractions, and Ten Toys to Pack for Toddlers and Pre-schoolers.
All the talk in Singapore at the moment is of the opening of Tim Ho Wan, a branch of the world’s cheapest Michelin star restaurant. I visited the original outlet of this famous dim sum joint while in Hong Kong three years ago, not long after it opened.
It’s a happy memory indeed, so I thought I would share the entry from my blog at the time.

Welcome to the world to my little boy! He arrived at Thomson Medical Centre here in Singapore on 22nd February.
Needless to say, I won’t be taking on any writing commissions for the next few weeks while I try to figure out just how you juggle working with a toddler and a newborn in the house!
I recently reviewed the swimming pool at the new, fabulous W Hotel at Sentosa Cove here in Singapore for 10Best.com.

The 1,338 square meter free-form outdoor swimming pool at W Singapore – Sentosa Cove is one of Singapore’s most fabulous relaxation destinations. Lined with palm trees and boasting views over the yachts of the adjacent Marina, pool-goers can choose from sunloungers, hammocks and private cabanas in which to indulge in a spot of sun worshipping. Underwater music and the achingly stylish WET swim-up bar complete the five-star experience.

A walk through Singapore’s historical Colonial District takes you along the picturesque Singapore River, and past some of the city’s most famous landmarks.
This walking tour I wrote for 10Best.com takes in some stunning colonial architecture, visits one of Singapore’s best museums, the Asian Civilisations Musuem, and passes by where Sir Stamford Raffles first stepped ashore in 1819, before ending the journey with a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar of the world-famous Raffles Hotel.

I’ve just returned from a 10-day trip to the Maldives, staying at the brand new Niyama resort, the latest addition to the Per Aquum family. It has everything you would expect from the Maldives – crystal blue waters, vast expanses of snowy white sand, vibrant marine life…
What you don’t expect from your sandy little hideaway in the middle of the Indian Ocean though is a trendy, underwater nightclub hosting world renowned DJs – but Niyama delivers on this front too.
The thing that always gets me about the Maldives though is that it is so damn photogenic. Everywhere you turn is a view just begging to be photographed, for yet another cliched ‘holiday in paradise’ snap.
Singapore may be a relatively young nation, having only earned independence in 1965, but its history can be traced back to the 11th century. Key episodes include its emergence as a port in the 14th century, the arrival of Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819, the Japanese Occupation of 1942-1945 and its independence in 1965.
This article for 10Best.com highlights where to learn more about Singapore’s colorful history, taking in the city’s museums, exhibitions and architecture.
